My sister had her baby!

Penelope Lea made her arrival on December 26th at 6:45 p.m. She is 5 lbs. 13 oz. and 19 1/2 inches long. She is such a pretty baby.

My sister ended up having a c-section (after nearly 12 hours of labor). I was in the OR with her during the surgery. It was such an emotional experience. I love my niece so much and am so pround of my sister!

I took a plethora of pictures. I couldn't help myself. I told Penelope that she better get used to it with me as an Aunt. There are many many more pictures to come!

Here are a few some of my favorites...

Merry Christmas!

Well as usual I'm one of the first ones up. I can never sleep late on Christmas!

Last night we drove through Ransom Canyon to look at the lights. It was so pretty.

As I was clearing the memory off my camera this morning, I realized I have A LOT of pictures from the month of December.

Here are some of my favorites...

Wearing the hat Nana made him-

Enjoying his hot cocoa

The Family

Making Christmas cookies-

Hanging out with Daddy.. Those socks he got from his Grandma and he wanted to wear them all the time.:-)

With his cousin Albert at Albert's Christmas concert.

Our new found addiction... Rock Band!

Santa and a miniature horse! (I'll share more pics from that later.)

And last but not least a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus~

Merry Christmas Everyone! I'm off to wake up my guys who are STILL sleeping at almost 9 o'clock!

The Polar Express

We've been very busy this Christmas season. I have a lot of pictures I need to put on here. I'm very excited because the day after Christmas my sister is having her baby!! I can't wait to meet Penelope.:-)

Anyway, the Sunday before last we went to The Polar Express. It was really cute! Holden loves the movie and book so he was really excited about the whole experience.

We all dressed in our pajamas. Funny thing is I didn't think about it until the drive there but I think the wearing pj's part was only for the kids. LOL. But oh well...we're all just big kids, right?

Holding his ticket, about to board!

Getting on the train..

Looking out the window

The helpers passing out hot cocoa and cookies..

Holden enjoying his cookie.

The North Pole (not the greatest picture because it was taken from the inside of the train, but you get the idea.)

And lastly Holden admiring the bell he got from Santa.

Since I probably won't post again until after Christmas, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
