Where does the time go?
I know we are all busy during this time of year. It always amazes me how fast December is here and gone, but even with all the hustle and bustle we are sure to still enjoy this Christmas season.
With Maya's 2 year old birthday just around the corner in January, she is quite the lil' talker, soaking up everything around her, talking, dancing, and giggling all the time. She also is enjoying all the holiday fun, taking after her mother. =)
We helped decorate the Christmas tree at Grammy and Grampy's house, made gingerbread houses with the fam, drove to Thanksgiving Point to see the lights, (which Maya absolutely LOVED), and are anxiously awaiting Santa's arrival! The spirit of Christmas is all around and I love the feeling in the air.
We also have had TONS of snow this week. Maya has come down with a cold the past few days so we have yet to get her out in the snow to play, but as soon as she is healthy we are looking forward to that. The forecast does say a WHITE CHRISTMAS! I couldn't be happier!
I have really enjoyed living in my condo this year. I live in a great place with great neighbors. This really is the first year I have gone "all out" on my christmas decorations and I'm pretty proud of it! I wouldn't say I'm the most creative or artistic person, so this really is quite the accomplishment for me! I wish I could keep them up all year round...there's just something about the way they make my home look and feel! =)
Here are some pics of what we've been up to, ENJOY!

She loved putting the ornaments on...and attempted to take them off too.

Maya loves her Grammy!
The Guthrie's (so glad your here for Christmas!)
My brothers...they struggling building their house. The roof was caving in, the trees were breaking, and Carsen was harassing Taylor with the icing. We were all dying laughing! Grammy had to come to the rescue to help them finish it up.
