2nd Week Of Christmas Break

The second week of Christmas break, we decided to head up to Utah. Here's how the boys spent most of their time.
They did really well. Cody started losing it when we were on our last leg (going through the canyon) but thankfully we were going to my friend's house in Spanish Fork which was great! It was so nice to see her. I wish I could see her more often.
One of my favorite scenes along the way is when you're coming up on Moab. There are these mountains that are beautiful. I have other pictures of these mountains but not covered in this much snow or at this time of day.
We discussed what we were to do while in Utah since we were just "hangin out". It seemed like everything was based around food. We had to go to Cafe Rio, Gandolfo's, In N' Out, and we even hit Kneaders.

Landon's first taste! And it's GOOD!

We hung out with family. We were luckily able to see almost everyone in John's family! It was great! Here is Cody with his Aunt Sara and Landon with his Great Aunt Sally.

The boys loved playing with the cousins. Landon was being a show-off and showing everyone how he knew his letters and sounds so well (thank you iphone app).

John was able to go to a car show and he was estatic to sit in one of these!!!!

We went to the aquarium which Landon loved and Cody was more like, eh.

And of course, I had to hit up IKEA! Landon was especially taken with this leaf that covered your bed. He LOVED it. He also loved laying down on beds and saying "I cute!". The first couple times it was funny. By the 10th time, it was starting to just get annoying. But, he is cute!

1st Week Of Christmas Break

John had 2 1/2 weeks off of work over Christmas. My sisters were in town for Christmas and my brother came in town the day after Christmas so we enjoyed time with them. So here's what we did the first week after Christmas.
Played with our toys.

Played with our phones

Took breaks

Went bowling

Got H1N1 shots. They are very supportive of eachother.

Christmas 2009

So this is almost a month late but this is what we did for Christmas!
We went to the Botanical Gardens where they had the River of Lights. It takes them quite some time to put up all the lights and it's really incredible. It was very cold! See the sock on Cody's hand? We kept losing mittens. Landon really seemed to enjoy it.
On Christmas Eve, we had out traditional waffles which the boys love. We also always go out and look at the lights. One house we go to has live singing, Santa Claus, and apple cider! It's quite the production. Landon didn't mind Santa as much but Cody was having none of it. We went home and read the Christmas Story from the scriptures and put them to bed in their matching pj's.
Christmas morning, we went over to my parents house. I have to say that having a kid at Christmas is so much more fun! Every present Landon opened was like the most incredible thing to him. Mouth open wide in surprise and then as the present unfolds, ooh's and aah's of delightment! It was sheer happiness! John was taping most everything so we didn't have pictures but my sister's took pictures, which I don't have yet, so maybe I'll post those later if it doesn't get too late. I don't want to be posting Christmas pictures in March!
