"Christis", as Aniston would say it, was great! This whole month has been crazy, but great! Chris finished the semester, has a new position at work in the bike department, and is looking forward to his last Cyclocross race this weekend. Aniston has been a busy bossy body and enjoyed "Christis" and all the lights and decorations too. She watched a lot of Rudolph and learned a bunch of Christmas songs: Rudolph, Up on the House Top, Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, and Santa Clause is Coming to Town. She got to sit on Santa's lap twice, and play in the snow a bunch! I've been busy making hats and bands, working, and hanging out with family and friends. Now to the pictures and enough of this rambling...

This video is really sad, but I can't help but laugh too. Watch Aniston's face at the end when she puts her hands over her face.

River was so much fun to cuddle!
Aniston and I played with Colton a few times in December, and I was glad he was there so I could make sure his Christmas present would fit!
I figured out how to make these head bands that I've seen girls wearing. I wasn't about to pay $20-$30 bucks for one, so I figured out my own way to make them and my mom got the first one!
makin' cookies at Grammy and Papa's
We went to my Grandparent's grave right before Christmas. I miss them SOOO much!
Making more cookies for Santa, but they didn't stick around long enough for Santa because we have a little sweet tooth in our house(Aniston).
Christmas Eve and Christmas Jammies from Papa and Grammy.
Christmas morning was CRAZY!! Aniston usually wakes up really early, but Chris had to wake both her and I up and Aniston was not excited about it until she saw that Santa had come!
Christmas morning in our Christmas jammies(thank goodness I followed a pattern this year because last year I couldn't even wear mine).
Look at these two cuties! They have a love hate relationship. Aniston will boss Carter, he wacks her in the face, and then they hug!
Sisters! I love these two girls even though only one of them is blood related!
So, I guess because my sister would only let me play with my mom's Skipper doll when we were young, Skipper's hair style rubbed off. I'm getting used to hair in my eyes and double takes.

a bunch of stuff...

Thanksgiving was great this year because Chris got to eat with us! We did have a change of plans last minute when we figured out we would be driving almost as much as we would be in St. George. We ended up eating dinner with my family, and it was yummy! Early the next morning, my first nephew was born and he is the cutest chubbs. I can't wait to go see him!

Aniston helped me set up "Christis" on Friday evening. I want to make it clear that just because we have blue lights on our tree doesn't mean we're fans of that blue team in Utah County. We've had the same decorations since Chris and I got married and we were boycotting Dixie State(they're red) when we bought them(well, I was).

Then came the Utah vs BYU game, and that gave me 3 or 4 ulcers and ended bad. By the way Max Hall, I'm pretty classy thank you VERY much.

Aniston has been saying some funny phrases these days:
"I be nice to everyone!" and she is nice to everyone, most of the time!
"Oh, Terrance" I guess this Terrance is on her Tinkerbell movie, and she says he's a nice boy.
"We need to tell Papa to clean it up" Our stairwell was really dirty after a pipe broke and for some reason, Aniston thought Papa needed to come clean it up?!
"Everyone stop talking, ok!" She says this when people are talking and she's not invloved. She's bossy like her mom.
She also asked me for "fiteen dollars" today, but she wouldn't tell me why she needed it.

Aniston was singing Happy Birthday to the turkey! Notice the carot/candle in her roll.
Check out her new get-up! She still LOVES to wear my shoes, and Chris helped her out with her skirt!
She has this thing with our scale, and I'm not sure why because I stear clear of that thing! She gets on and then rambles off some number in the 30s.
This is River! He was born early on the 27th and was 9 pounds and 21 inches long.
This is Aniston's new hang out spot. She is obsessed with everything "Christis"!
We partied with a bunch of red food and watched the game!
Aniston watching the game, and as you can tell by her face she wasn't happy with what was going on!!
