We spent Thanksgiving at my parents house and we had such a great time. It was fun seeing mom and dad, Dave and Tiff's family, Scott and Tiff's family, Ryan, and Becky. We enjoyed watching the kids play the x box connect(way too funny), talking to Siri(she might be the start of a nanobot revolution, but she sure is witty), and watching several heated games of settlers.(I try to play, but I just can't get into it. Its fun to see how crazy and competitive everyone gets though) We even went to a fun burger place called the thrifty Scotsman. We both had a greasy stomachache after, but it was worth it.

Like usual Livy loved seeing everyone. She especially loves Becky and likes to snuggle with my Dad. She can't get enough of that football. It's cute, she is always so calm with Dad and could sit with him for hours. She also kept holding hands with Katelyn. At one point, we picked her up to put her down, and when she let go of Katelyn's hand she started crying. Too precious.

We also loved the Thanksgiving feast! It was delectable, as always. Thanks Mom! I am always so impressed by my mom when we go home to visit. She is so on top of things and makes sure that everyone is taken care of and comfortable. Thanks for always looking after us Mom. You're the best!

It was a great weekend, and a great break for Landon. This week Landon is finishing finals and we are so excited for a 2 1/2 week Christmas break! It is definitely much needed. We can't wait to see you all!

Scott also took some great pictures of us. Thanks Scottie! What a pro, right!

Oh we decorated the Christmas tree too. This has always been one of my favorite family traditions, and its always fun to see the old ornaments we each crafted!

Here are just a few of my ornaments. I always though I was artistic when I was little, but maybe I hadn't quite reached that stage when I made these. I was innovative though right? I think I could have made an ornament out of anything.

I'll write a post about putting up our tree soon, and more of our Christmas festivities! Happy Christmas!!

Rice Cereal and Bath Time!

Livy started eating rice cereal last week. She is starting to like it much more(after I mixed it with formula...so needy),but she's still getting the hang of being spoon fed. I love when she tries to grab my hands to get it into her mouth faster. She is so fun, and so determined.

I also took some pictures of bath time. Adorbs right? And who doesn't love that little bum!?!
