Christmas 2009

We started out celebrating Christmas this year with the annual Harris/ Brower Christmas Eve party. As always there was WAY too much food, and so much fun. There was the talent show, where Preston and Tahila represented the Byran Harris family by dancing to a snow globe that Leticia has that plays music. They wore little elf ears that were on a headband. It was very cute! After eating way too much and lots of laughing we called it a night and headed home to get Preston to bed.
I think that I was more excited than Preston was, because I knew what was in store for the next morning. We got Preston to sleep and Blake and I set up Preston's toys. The anticipation for Preston's reaction was exciting. So we woke Preston up, nice and early. As you can tell he was not that enthused.
This is when he saw the gifts under the tree.
Now he is starting to warm up and get excited.
Preston is very much a John Deere boy. He loves tractors, so he was happy to get his very one to ride.

Blake surprised even me with some of Preston's Christmas gifts. Preston is always stealing Blake's tape measure so it was a very appropriate gift.
One of the treats that Preston gets in nursery is Swedish fish, so he was excited to have them in his stocking.
Just had to throw this picture of Preston in here, a classic 'Preston pose'.
After we finished gifts at our house we went to Grandma and Papa Harris's house and exchanged gifts and then headed back to our house for the Harris breakfast. It was fun to see everyone in pajamas. The rest of the day was pretty relaxing and obviously with lots of food :)

Nursery Time!

Just wanted to document how stinking cute this kid is and that he is now attending nursery! I love how his little corduroy blazer makes him look so grown up. And notice the sucker in hand... a piece of evidence that he made it ALL the way through nursery. Hip hip hooray!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Tahila!

Preston always has a good time with Tahlia! We are so happy that they live so close to us. Tahlia is so fun of energy. She makes me so tired just watching her! Happy Birthday, we love you!

Thanksgiving 2009

This year for Thanksgiving we celebrated with my family. Mary hosted at her house, and we all contributed to the feast. I made the rolls, which if I say so myself, turned out quite nice. There was so much food, like most Thanksgiving dinners, and lots of reminiscing. Rochelle helped me make the curtain for the babies room, and got me started on the bumper. I am excited to be getting close to finished with my sewing projects for that room! The next day Rochelle, Mary, Tricia, and I headed out at 5:00 am to join the crowds for Black Friday shopping. We had a blast and spent lots of money! We may have started a new tradition of eating breakfast at IHOP. Rochelle held up to her reputation of returns, by returning something that she had bought that morning before we even left town. :) Luckily she did, because we realized that Sears had charged her for two docking stations when she had only bought one. Thanks to Morgan for watching the kids!
