A lot of Stuff

This Friday we got the privilege of having our nephews, Taylor and Dallin, sleep over at our house. We had pizza for dinner (or "pita," as Hannah likes to say) and then played video games and watched movies for the rest of the night. Scott and I went to bed at 11:30 and the boys stayed up for a couple of hours longer. I guess Scott and I are getting too old to stay up late. Hannah loved playing with them and we had a lot of fun with them as well.
The next day we went to our ward Christmas party and Santa Claus decided to make an appearance. Hannah has never really been scared of strangers (although she would prefer her mom or dad), so I wasn't expecting her to get scared of him. Instead, she's holding up a number 1, for "Santa's number one!! "
Sorry.....forgot to turn this picture vertical.

At our Christmas party we had delicious Macaroni Grill (they've done this for the past three years) and played White Elephant along with a few other Christmas games. Last night we also had Scott's work Christmas dinner at a place called Wallabys. It's too bad all of this good food came in one day. I felt full the entire day.

On to other news, we went to a dermatologist on Thursday for Hannah's rash and found out that her rash is not eczema. He thought it was something called dermatitis, which I guess is some kind of yeast forming around her mouth. He told us to wash her clothes with a certain kind of detergent and to not use fabric softener. I heard about washing her clothes in this kind of detergent before she was born but she didn't get this rash until 3 months ago so I didn't think that had anything to do with it. Anyway, he gave us some prescription samples and prescribed us something. We started using the prescription samples and her rash is looking worse than it was, of course, but we are hoping that it will start looking better pretty quickly. If not, we will go back to using aquafor and assuming that it is eczema because that has seemed to work better than anything. Hopefully this will work, though.

P.S. I don't know why our picture on top of this blog got cut in just did that on its own one really annoys me, though, but I can't figure out how to get the whole picture on there again.

Our Snowy Day

Today we went to one of the Singles ward activities again. They made gingerbread houses, stuffed footballs, and had a sweet treat contest. They also had groups before the activities make music videos of themselves, and we got to watch them. The videos were hilarious, and there was one in particular that I could not stop laughing at. If we can get it from the guy who made it, we'll post it. Here are a few pictures:

People making stuffed footballs (not really sure why they were making these....maybe for kids who don't have toys).

Here is Scott, the 1st counselor, and the Bishop testing all of the desserts and judging them.

This guy played "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" on the bagpipes. He was awesome!
We also had another huge snow storm today, so we played out in the snow for a few minutes until we were all cold. I like the snow, but I remembered tonight that it's not fun when your feet get wet and you are walking around with wet shoes and socks and your feet feel like prunes. Our kitchen gets flooded, too, when it's really wet outside, so my socks get wet when I am inside and outside. It's really pretty, though.

Tonight we dropped Hannah off at some girls' house because they have been asking to babysit her for weeks. I had plans for Scott and I to go ice skating but found out that during the time we wanted to go they were having hockey practice. We went to dinner and the mall instead. I was really bummed that we didn't get to go ice skating because we've never gone together, but hopefully we'll get to go another day. It was nice to go on a date, though. Anyway, so that was our day.

What a Mess!

I turn my back on her for only a few moments to check my email and when I turn around, this is what I see (and yes, she put that thing on her head all by herself). Hannah gets into EVERYTHING!!!! I clean up the same messes over and over everyday. She's just too adorable to get mad at, though.

P.S. Happy Birthday Mom!!!!
