She loves Santa, she loves him not

It's been all things Santa in our house the past few weeks. Curly has been so excited about Christmas this year and has been looking forward to seeing Santa at our ward party. But when Santa came out and sat on the stage Curly froze; she no longer wanted ANYTHING to do with him.
Of course dad and I tried everything we could to get her to go up and sit on Santa's lap, knowing she would be really disappointed if she didn't. Nothing we said would change her mind. Luckily a friend from the ward was gracious enough to encourage her up there. He was so patient with her, slowly walking her closer and closer to Santa.
Definitely very apprehensive
When she finally got up there she was still VERY freaked out
A little a little worried, but better.
TA DA, happy as can be!!!

I'm glad she got up the nerve to do it. She was so proud of herself and I have wonderful pics to remember the fun moment of the two of them together.

5 years and counting!!

This past Friday was our 5th anniversary. The years have definitely FLOWN by!!
I loved Nate so very much when we were first married; I would never have guessed I would grow to love him more and more with every passing year.
Thanks for being a great (and patient) husband, a truly amazing dad, the hardest worker I have ever met, a goof that I can laugh with and at, the cleanest male I know :)... and my best and dearest Friend!!

I don't know how we would do it without you!

Cute girl

This evening I was sitting on Curly's bed responding to some e-mails while she was in the room playing with her toys. She was really quiet for about 15 minutes then walked over to me and said, "prayer" and pointed to her Christmas figurines. This is what I found...

A baby blessing!!
I guess she's seen more than a few of these over the past few months. It's amazing what she picks up.
I love her!!!
