It's true...

Holidays really are SO much better once you have kid(s)! Yes, I know that Jackson is only 3 months and has no idea what is even going on, but when he is older he can see the cute pictures and know that we really did care, ha ha! This is how our Christmas Holiday panned out...

DEC. 23, 2010

We spent this night with the Hyde family- it was such a fun night! We had dinner, a pinata with lots of candy, white elephant, then tried to do the manger scene with the 3 Hyde boys, but that didn't work out so well, but it'll be fun to see how it will progressively get better each year, then we did some Christmas songs on chimes, Gay read us our new Christmas book and read the nativity story from the scriptures. It really was way fun and I love the Hydes so much!

Me and Amy got way cute matching Christmas Pajama's for the boys, but Jackson had a HUGE blow out in his (typical Jackson, my boy can poooooop!). We thought it'd be a fun memory to remember so we took a picture while he was naked and his pj's were being cleaned off. ; )

I'm pretty sure this was meant for Dylan and McKay, but Andrew and Wes had a lot of fun with it...

Hyde Cousins!


McKay as the Shepard...

Dylan as the Wiseman...

Jackon as the babe in a manger...

Christmas Songs with the Chimes...

Each year Kyle and Gay give us a new Christmas Book, this year's book was Penny's Christmas Jar Miracle. It is a cute story you all should read. We also got a cute jar to fill throughout the year with our pennies to give to someone in need next Christmas- way cute idea!

We did Christmas at our house with my cute little family. We got up and opened gifts with Jackson. He sure is spoiled! Santa got him a cute Aggie outfit, a nice space heater for his cold room (that mama might steal), some onesies that actually fit and lots of cute little toys and stuff that I am sure he would just die without- ha ha! Santa brought Andrew Black Ops, NBA 2K11, some DVD's, a way cute 49ers shirt, Jazz shirt... sports fan, or not? And a bunch of other crap he doesn't need. Santa brought me the Kim Kardashian perfume, dvd's, some much needed knee high socks, tanning lotion (why is tanning lotion so expensive, lame), cute purse and a bunch of other crap I don't need... AND the best of all Andrew got me he said I would get later on in the day... So, we cleaned everything up, got packed, fed the baby and were on our way to home sweet Sandy! So, we get in the car... we're talkin'... and, "Weird, my back feels really warm..."... we're talking... "Seriously, my back feels like my seats are like heated or something..." ...we're talking... "Holy Cow, my butt feels warm too..." And Andrew says, "MERRY CHRISTMAS, I GOT THE SEATS HEATED!!!" I was SO SO SO beyond happy! I really did almost cry! Hands down- best Christmas ever! I've never had a car with heated seats and I told Andrew that we'll never buy a car without heated seats again! He stole my car on Wednesday and got it done and I had no idea! He is SO sweet- his gift was so thoughtful!

Jackson's Gifts...

My Gifts...

Andrew's Gifts...

Jackson in his new Bumbo from Grandma and Grandpa Hyde!

Our traditional picture in front of our tree... o wait, you can't see our tree, that's because our tree was about 3 feet tall because our couch is GINORMOUS and we don't have room for a big tree like the last few year, but next year, when Andrew is graduated and we live in a mansion we'll have a GINORMOUS tree... right?

Our 2010 Traditional Ornament... To bad this frame is so small and my face is SO FAT in this picture...

New tradition- handprint ornament of all my babies!(Sorry this pic won't turn!) Jackson has his daddy's hands- wide, big palms, short, thick fingers and a cricked pinky- I think it's cute!


That night we just hung out with my family, ate way too much food and had so much fun doing nothing. We always get Christmas pajamas and this year we decided to get Jazz pajamas cause we love the Jazz!
At my parent's house...

Could he be any cutter?!?

Jazz Pajama's!




Siegfried Sisters!

We all got up and opened tons of presents like always. One of my parents gifts is always a trip. The last few trips we've gotten have been to Hawaii which is obviously the best trip ever, but we decided that it would be better to do that every other year and do somewhere new the other years. So, this year we are going to go on a church history tour back to Palmyra and stuff- I am SO excited!

Jackson madeout like a bandit this year- holy cow he got SO SO SO much! Grandma and Grandpa Hyde got him a Jumparoo, a Bumbo with a tray and lots of cute toys for the bath and to hang on his car seat. Grandma and Grandpa Siegfried got him the cutest little recliner that is brown and matches my couches at home, clothes, Disney movies and lots of little toys. Did I already mention that he is spoiled... spoiled rotten, but that is how it is supposed to be, right?

Jackson's cute little brown recliner that he will love for a long time I am sure of it!

Since we did those pctures for our parents early for Christmas, we wanted them to have something to open on Christmas Day so we made a cute photo book with the pictures in it with fun memories from each kid- they loved it!

We always have my dad's family over after we open our gifts on Christmas day for lunch so they came over and we, again, ate way too much and had lots of fun playing cards and talking all afternoon!



We really are so blessed to have such amazing families and hope that you all had an amazing Holiday Season too!!!

LOVE YA!

oh sweet, you got all the baby wise books! I might have to borrow that potty wise book. That is so awesome. What a great Christmas. You have two really wonderful families.

Magdalena said...

Wow. Did I just see the 'babywise your kids for the rest of their lives' series in your christmas loot? I think I did. Your kid is adorable. I miss you even more after our little chats and not because you're super milfy, but because you're good people. Love you.

Looks like you guys had an awesome Christmas! Krew also got a brown recliner and he loves it! And I love the first Baby Wise! I haven't read the rest but I do love the first one! And maybe one night we should have a girls night while our husbands play black ops together and talk to each other on their goofy headsets! ;) hahaha! Really though!
