There's no title to this post because I'm going to talk about a bunch of different things that have happened recently and I couldn't think of a title.

Here's what it looks like in my family to try to get a good Christmas picture. Not an easy task.

We did get two pictures that will work, though. We are only planning on sending out Christmas cards to aunts, uncles, grandparents, our immediate families, and a few friends. Scott and I together have about a billion cousins, so we aren't planning on sending everyone one because it would cost us an arm and a leg, but if you'd like a Christmas card, please email me your address. We'd love to send you one.

Last weekend it snowed like crazy!! It's FREEZING here (like negative degrees at night)!! I know it's cold almost everywhere else in the US as well, but man it just goes from somewhat nice weather to freezing within days. It's reminded me of being in Rexburg and slipping on the ice constantly (so embarrassing) because our parking lot here is like pure ice.

It was snowing when I took the above picture. I don't think the girls liked getting snowflakes in their eyes very much.

Last Saturday was the 7th anniversary of our first date and the first date that Scott and I have been on since Bailey and Brynn were born. We saw New Moon, which I loved and Scott disliked very much. We also got a huge thing of Cherry Coke at the movie theater. "Coke reminds me of Christmas," Scott says. Scott and I don't drink a ton of caffeine so I was awake until 1am and he was awake until 3am that night. Nice one, Hubs. Not going to do that again.

Last Friday we took Hannah to see Santa at the mall. This is going to sound kind of creepy, but Hannah seems to have a special connection with older men (that give her candy). It's not creepy, though. She truly has a genuine love for Santa Claus (and for our previous two Bishops), and they seem to have a genuine love for her. I almost started crying when I saw her get SO excited to see Santa and hug him and tell him that she wanted a princess dress for Christmas (which she'll be getting ;). He seemed to be really excited to see her too.

Finally, here are a few random pictures that I took over that past couple of weeks.

I love that tiny ponytail!

Ok, those first two pictures cracked me up! That's so awesome that Hannah likes Santa. I think a lot of kids are afraid of him at that age...when they meet him. And how fun to be able to put a ponytail in Brynn's hair, it'll be a long while before we can do that.

My kids are all hovered around the computer right now oohing and aahing over how cute their cousins are! We can't wait to see everyone. Bailey's eyes look pretty blue in the pictures. We love Brynn's ponytail.

The family pictures were a crack up!

Grandma D said...

Those pictures are hilarious with Brynn pulling Hannah's hair. Hahaha that made me laugh out loud. They are gorgeous girls. Bailey's eyes are definitely blue and Brynn may be brown or green or hazel. Hard to tell. I am looking forward to seeing the Christmas photo that came out good. :) Can't wait to see you all! Love ya Mom

That's too funny that you dragged Scott to see New Moon for your "dating" anniversary. Jake and I went for Jake's b-day. Not his choice, but it was fun to get out non the less. I'm sorry about the snow...I do not miss be couped up inside most of the winter because of the freezing temperatures. However, it has been cold in NC too. Anyway, you are all such beautiful people. I'm so sad I won't see you for Christmas. Drive safely!!
