Have you ever seen anything more adorable in your life?!

Spencer just turned 16 months old a few days ago.
One of my favorite things that he has started doing is saying "thank you"
when he hands me something. He will get a can from the pantry and hand it to
me and then say "thank you". Or he will unload the dishwasher with me and
say "thank you" every time he hands me a plate. He also takes all the CDs out of the
 entertainment center one by one...thanking me all the time as he hands them to me :)

It is pretty darn cute.

We are counting the days till nursery!!
Only 2 months...I think I can make it.

Happy Holidays

Well, I know that all of you have been waiting so anxiously for me to finally post about our Holiday season. Well wait no more! Here is is:

We spent Christmas Eve with my family.
We had a yummy dinner at my Grandparent's house.
Then we did a little nativity.
I was the donkey...not sure how that happened.
{Luckily there were no pictures of that}

Spencer was a pretty cute little shepherd!

He stayed still and quite the whole time as pictured below :)

All in attendance:
Grandpa & ma

My sister, her husband and kids

My ma

And pa

And our little family

Spencer was pretty happy about that picture too!

We missed my other sister and her family who
didn't come because of a sick kid :(
It seems like someone always gets sick.

We spent Christmas morning together at our house.
Besides starting a little too early, it was a very nice morning. 

Spencer with his gifts

We got most of these gifts at our neighborhood exchange for free.
He didn't really care about most of them.
That is why I am so glad we didn't spend a lot of money on  him!

Our cutest and bestest gift:

The rest of the day we spent with Nate's family.
Sorry, no pictures.

My Mom came to stay with me for several days in between Christmas and New Years.
I LOVE having her come stay with us. She is one of the best people I know.
She helps out with Spencer and cooks and cleans. She is the best!
We had a great time watching a chick flik,
shoping, talking and just being together.

New Years Eve was going to be this great party at our house but again,
there we sick kids and it ended up being my parents and Nate's parents.
It was a little awkward but ended up being pretty fun.

New years day we did have a litlte party at our house.
My parents were there and one of my sisters and her family.
That was a fun day! I didn't take many pictures of that day either.
 But I did get a cute one of my little Dalin!

Happy 2011!!
