Christmas Number Two!

This year was Ty and I's second Christmas married and our turn to be with the Andre Family in California. It was my first Christmas away from home and as hard as it was to be away from family... it was so fun to share such a special time of year with my second family. Christmas Eve was spent at the Suman's and we went caroling to the poor firemen who had to work. Then there was Christmas morning and a picture of us with a few of our presents and the presents we gave to Ty's family. Ty's Aunt Kelly comes down from Utah and spend Christmas in California and it was a blast to have her there. She also hooked us up with a little cookie decorating and it was honestly my favorite activity. (I decided that I want to decorate cookies for just about every holiday!) Lastly, what would a Christmas in California be like with out a trip to the beach? We didn't go on Christmas day because it was raining like crazy, but we went the Saturday after. It is always fun to see Ty smile when he digs his toes into the sand. This year Ty and I had a pretty big Christmas. The excited Baker grandparents gave us a crib and The excited Andre grandparents gave us a video camera! Ty and I have said over and over again to each other how thankful we are for every single gift we received on Christmas. We are definitely spoiled, but even more important we are thankful for eternal families. We are so excited for our new little girl to come into our lives and for the wonderful families she is going to be a part of. As we contemplate the birth of our Savior we also turn our hearts to the wonderful gift each baby is.  We couldn't have had a better second Christmas.

Exciting Events!

I have definitely been taking a few weeks off from my blog because life has been crazy, but I thought I would give everyone a quick catch up on what we have done in the last three weeks!

1. Thanksgiving at the Bakers!
We drove up to Moses Lake and partied hard with my family to celebrate the holidays. I hadn't spent Thanksgiving with them since high school and it was such a blast. My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is my grandpa's gravy, my mom's stuffing, watching "White Christmas," and playing lots of games. Ty also proposed the day after Thanksgiving two years ago.... so it will always be our special holiday.


2. Baby Shower in Washington!
If any or all of you read my mom's blog you probably know everything about my life, but I will just pretend you don't and tell you for myself. Peggy, Janet, Susan and more threw me a fabulous baby shower in Moses Lake.  Complete with wonderful friends, gifts, games and more. I do think that some of the girls cheated when it came to winning the games, but we will let that slide for now.


Okay, this isn't an exciting event, but it swept over our house like the plague. When I got home from a quick trip to Washington Ty was glued to the couch and sleeping for at least 24 hours, then one week later it was my turn. The flu is horrible no matter what, but let's just say it was dreadful pregnant. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, (the two things I love the most) and my body ached every where. Thank goodness it didn't last forever and my husband loves me no matter what. A few trips to the grocery store for sprite and crackers and I was as good as new. 

4. Finals are Over!
I am officially done with school forever! I finished my very last final of my very last semester and couldn't have been more excited. I have to pinch myself every once and a while to see if I am awake, but it is true... I am a college graduate. Ty is pretty excited to be done with finals too. He only has one more semester left at BYU, but he actually likes school (crazy). We are just glad we don't have to make the trek up to campus in all this snow!


5. Christmas is coming and so is the Baby!
I can't believe I only have 8 weeks left of pregnancy... depending on when this baby really decides to come. It has gone a lot faster then I expected and now I have an excuse to eat a lot over the holidays! lol (Here is a picture of Ty and I from this weekend when we went to his cousins wedding and another of our beautiful Christmas tree.)



Merry Christmas to everyone! Travel safe and know that we love you. We are so Thankful this holiday season for so many wonderful friends and family who truly care about us and support us in all that we do!
