Christmas 2009

We had such a fun Christmas this year. We started off the festivities with Jeff working on Christmas Eve...booooo. It wasn't that bad he got off at 1:00pm and so it was just the morning he had to work. In the evening we headed to Fruit Heights for the Christenson Family Christmas Eve Bash. We had a delicious dinner, played tons of games, and of coarse opened gifts. We had to have the party at a church this year because the family is getting so large. It took awhile to find the church due to some shotty directions, but once we got there the party was on.

Christmas morning was a blast with both Talmage and Cadence. The morning started off with Talmage waking up Chelsi by poking her in the eye. Nice. Then we got the camera ready and checked if Santa visited. He did! Talmage was so excited and loved all the toys he got. He got more than spoiled. His present he got from Santa was a Roller Coaster that he rides down in a little car. It got set up in the basement and he played with it all day. Cadence got some toys that make way too much noise, but she loves them. She also got a bunch of stuff for her new room which is in the process of being painted.

Overall a wonderful holiday!!!

Cadence's First Birthday was on the 11th of December. We celebrated it a couple days late so that we could throw a little party for her down in American Fork with family. We had such an amazing time and she, of coarse, was a perfect angel for the whole thing. She got very spoiled by all her aunts, uncles, and grandparents. We had Cadence's favorite food for dinner...Nachos. Then presents and the grand finale...the cake. She did not disappoint. It took her a minute to figure out what was going on, but after she got a taste of that sweet frosting she was hooked. We love this little princess so much and are so grateful to have her in our little family. Thank you to all that we able to spend this fun day with us.

The First of Many

Here are some pics of the first of many snow storms that we will be experiencing here in Cache County. Talmage loves the snow and would play in it all day if we would let him. Cadence is still trying to figure what exactly is going on with the white stuff. Also we thought it would be smart to put up our new mailbox AFTER there was snow on the ground and everything was sufficiently frozen. I believe the thermometer read 3 degrees outside. Good times.

Naked Baby

We had to post some of these "tasteful" nudes of the every so chunky and adorable baby Cadence.
