Christmas Favorites

Here are a few of our favorite Christmas spoils!

Thanks Aunt Sariah for your awesome knitting skills! Brighton loved the lobster!

Kyle was amazing and surprised me with a Kitchenaid stand mixer. Thanks Babe!

Probably everyone's favorite thing on Christmas was Porter's new Boston Red Sox baby book. We're starting him early!

Christmas at a Glance

This Christmas season we did many things including but not limited to:

Making Gingerbread houses

Going to see Christmas at the Mansion at the Children's Museum with Brighton's preschool class

Making Christmas ornaments

Going to the library Christmas party

Meeting Santa (Sadly he was the storybook reader at the library and Brighton caught on pretty quick!)

All-in-all it was an eventful, exciting, exhausting, and exhilarating Christmas time. It goes by way too quick! We hope yours was just as fun!

The Reason for the Season

Brighton loves the Little People nativity we got this year and has really started understanding why we celebrate Christmas. This morning she woke up and said "Mom! Tomorrow is Jesus' birthday!" She always sets the nativity up in a way so everyone can see the new special little baby Jesus. What a sweet spirited girl we have!

G. Kohen Romeril

Before I continue ranting about Christmas acitivities we've recently done, I couldn't help but brag a little bit about my new nephew! This is Gregory Kohen Romeril who was born on November 3rd and is the cutest baby ever! I couldn't be a prouder aunt and I can't wait to meet the little guy! Way to go Casey and Ty! You make beautiful babies!

Happy Birthday to...


Today is my birthday and since it's Sunday, we just had some friends over for dinner. We've got some great friends here named Jenny and Jon Cummings. Jenny is so great. She baked me a super yummy birthday cake and got me 2 of the best gifts: 1- Twilight lotion (okay it's from bath&body works but we loved the movie so it worked both ways) 2- A subscription to Runners' World. We've been planning on running a marathon together in 2010 and this just gets me more excited to do that! She's so awesome and I don't know what I would do without her here! Thanks again Jenny!

Trimming the Tree

We decorated our Christmas tree about 30 minutes before Kyle went to work, which was fun, but rushed and although we went in a flurry,it was nice to get it done quick. Brighton just loved looking at all the different ornaments and had to put up the prettiest ones all by herself. She also did the honor of putting the star on top. I love this season and it's exciting to see Brighton at the age where she really gets into it. Porter had a good time just trying to get into the decoration boxes. It was a good little time as you can see!

The cookiness never stops with this little girl

Porter really wanted to help. Even now he will go up to the tree and put his toys on the bottom branches. What a cutie!

Brighton was just tickled that daddy and her put the star on top!

Cat in the Hat Girls' Night

Whenever Kyle works nights, Brighton and I have started having girls' nights. Sometimes they are themed, other nights she just gets to stay up a little later (until 8:30 which is big for her) and hang out. A few nights ago, they had The Cat in the Hat movie on TV so I said she could stay up and watch it. We have the book so we read that and we have a stuffed animal from my Nana that she got to play with so she thought that was great. We ate popcorn and hung out like 2 girlfriends. I love the times I get to spend with her. What a fun little girl I have!
