Our First Christmas in Jersey

Christmas Sunday Best

We had a wonderful Christmas. Little Richie had so much fun opening presents that he started stealing ours to open. Thanks to family for all the gifts. We hope you all had a great day. Enjoy the video.

Merry Christmas from New York!

One of the things we wanted to do over the Christmas break was go see the tree at Rockefeller Center. We did it last year, but this year Richie was really able to enjoy it. He thought the tree was pretty cool, but seeing Santa Claus was even cooler. Then he saw three more Santas and I think he was a little confused.

This is us right in front of the tree.

Even though it was pretty cold outside, we couldn't resist a trip to Jamba Juice before we went home. We ordered Richie his own small Jamba Juice, but they accidentally gave him a regular size.

He didn't mind.

Sophia Smiles

Sophia just gets cuter and cuter every day! She used to smile mostly in her sleep, which was ADORABLE, but now she smiles while she is awake too, and she smiles a lot. She has started sleeping until 5 or 6 in the morning so I get a nice long stretch of sleep before she needs to be fed; it is wonderful. We really love having her in our family.

Richie is a great big brother. He almost loves Sophia too much and is always trying to give her kisses. It is our faults that he is like that, though, because we have always given him lots of hugs and kisses. The other night as I was putting him to bed I told him that I love him and asked if he loves me and he said, "Uhhhhh . . . I think so." He says the funniest things. I love my kids.


Sorry we haven't posted for a while. Without our parents here to help out we haven't been able to get as much done. This has been a particularly tough week. Chrislynn has been doing it all on her own, but the end is in sight! At least the end of the semester. I closed my show last night, I only have 3 more days of classes left, and there are only 9 days left until my final evaluations! Then we'll have a nice break to enjoy the holidays with each other! We wont be able to travel to Utah for Christmas, but we're going to enjoy our first east coast Christmas. We have a little tree set up, and Richie is getting excited about the presents that are starting to appear. We've been reading a lot of Christmas stories so he's starting to get really excited for Santa Claus! I read Polar Express to him for the first time a couple nights ago, and it was a special experience. That's my favorite book. Grandma Call gave it to me, and when Richie really liked it,…
