Christmas was so much fun. Christmas eve we went snow shoeing then had the traditional family taco night. Christmas morning we woke up kind of early and opened presents. Elijah loves opening presents. He gets so excited and even more excited if the present is a car. My mom, dad and brother Lucas came over for breakfast. To make the morning even better Sam got called off for the first four hours of his shift. My dad and I went for a run after breakfast and man it was cold!!! After Sam went to work Elijah and I took a nap and then headed to my sisters house for family dinner. Elijah got to open more presents, he could barely help himself he had to open everyones presents. He kept saying "more presents".
Today my living room looks more like Elijah's toy box and we keep having to sit and play with all the new toys. Time to clean out the old toys to make room for all the new stuff.
I did enjoy christmas so much more this year because of Elijah. Watching him be so excited by everything made me remember how exciting christmas is!!!

Christmas morning!!

Christmas Eve snowshoeing
Oh and this is what two toddlers can do to a room in a very short time.

Uncle Lucas teasing Elijah

Sam took his last final of the semester yesterday!!!! He has done so good this semester I know he did well on on his finals. We celebrated by eating dinner at La Frontera then headed to Lights at the Zoo. It was a cold night but we had a lot of fun. Elijah just ran through the whole zoo, yelling "lights, lights". Today was a nice relaxing day. Sam and I went to the gym while Elijah went to daycare then chilling, watching Cars and Prison Break, eating good food and taking a family nap. I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks with Sam being home. Everything starts again January 12th!! This time I will be taking a class also.

I know every parent thinks this but I really think Elijah is so funny and so beautiful. He is so energetic and so full of life. Every day he makes me laugh and appreciate life. He did get upset with me the other day and told me "no no pow pow mama". Pow pow means spanking in our house!! I wasn't sure what to say to that. His new thing is drinking water from the dog water bowl. I do give him water but he likes the dog water. His favorite things to eat are meat and mangos!

Before his bath he has to run around the house naked. I think he feels free when he is naked.

We played in the snow!! He thought it was a good time to howl and scream.

The box does not say anything about putting Q-tips in your nose.

It is the same Q-tip.

Yesterday evening Elijah and I were waiting for Sam to come home from school. I looked at Elijah and asked "where is your dad"? Elijah looked at me like I was not very smart and said "work". He then walked away from me. I felt really silly for even asking and being told by my toddler.

We had a good Thanksgiving. Sam had the whole day off no school and no work!! I loved having him around all day. Sam's Mom and Kelvin were able to come from New Mexico to spend the weekend with us. They came to my family dinner, it was nice to have everyone together. Dinner was really good, we went through a lot of food and had a good time hanging out.
I ran the Cold Turkey run thanksgiving morning. I felt good but really felt all that uphill and downhill the next day.

Me and my man.

Yes he got into the tub with his clothes and diaper on!

Katie, Laura and their hot mama.

Dani and Val!

Juanita looks pretty but Eric and Larry you need to work on your posing.
