Christmas Time

Here's the update about what's been going on here. We spent Christmas at my family's house (of course we live just 5 minutes away) and then on Christmas night, we caught a flight to John's family's house. We're staying here for a week, thus, no photos because we can't hook up our camera. I'll have to download them when we get back.
For Christmas Eve, we of course had our waffles! Awesome as usual. We read the Christmas story and went out looking at lights. Landon didn't enjoy it much and cried most of the time. He was way too tired. On Christmas morning, we went over to my parents. John and I went all out for eachother. I got him a grill. He had no idea. It was pretty funny. My sister had us for Christmas this year and didn't know what to get him so she helped me out. She bought his grilling utensils and some meat. John was acting all nice about the stuff because meat is not a usual present. I brought out the grill to the front door. He seemed to really like it. We'll have to try it out when we get back. Grill up some good meat! John got me a vacuum, which I did want badly, and an ipod with a armband for it and a stereo to hook it up to. I've been wanting a vacuum badly because our other one sucks, or should I say, doesn't suck! It's a cheapo one from Target that we got when we first got married. I figure if I'm going to vacuum, the carpets should be clean after I'm done! As John put it, this vacuum is the Rolls Royce of vacuum cleaners. I'm actually excited to try it out. I guess I really don't have a life! :(
So that night, at 7, we caught our flight to San Fran and was picked up by John's mom and dad. We "celebrated" Christmas a little later. It's been fun. We've just been hanging out with his family, shopping, seeing movies, and just having a good time. I've got to say, I'm excited to try out all the fun "toys" I got. I wasn't able to download anything on to my ipod because we didn't have enough time. We'll be going home on New Year's Day in the morning. We figure everyone will be sleeping in so hopefully the airport won't be too busy.
I hope you all have been having a great time! Merry Christmas everybody.

Santa Claus

We had our Christmas party last night. It went sorta late and Landon was getting hungry so we weren't sure how he was going to react when we put him on Santa's lap. He almost looked like he was going to lose it but than he looked at me and just started smiling so I just started clicking away. So far, he's not scared of Santa. We probably won't get as good of a picture with him next year when he'll actually be scared of strangers but for this year, he's smiling!! You don't know how excited I was to get a good picture of him with Santa.

Christmas Time

Get ready for the coolest looking little cakes. Can you just imagine how good they're going to look? I went to Hobby Lobby today with a friend and I thought these were just too cool. I bought little icing things too. In case you can't make out what they are, the red one is Santa Claus and the green ones are weaths. They're like these plastic muffin containers. Well, that's what they remind me of. You can just pop the little cake out .... hopefully. I'm so excited to start all those fun Christmas traditions. My favorite tradition is that we always have waffles on Christmas Eve and then go look at the lights. I don't think we've ever missed a year! I'd love to hear what your favorite traditions are. I think it would be nice if John and I had our own traditions too so maybe if we like yours, we'll use it as ours! :)
