Ogden's Christmas Village

Last night as part of our family home evening we went to see the Christmas Village in downtown Ogden. It was the perfect night to go because the weather wasn't so cold, and Jacob was in a good mood. He just kept saying "wow" to all the lights and had fun in the stroller. We thought he may want to get out and walk around instead of just sitting in there, but I think he was pretty comfortable. Here are a few pictures of our little trip.

Super Boy!

We got Jacob a pair of superman pj's and it comes with a removable cape...I just had to get a couple of pictures the first time he wore it! The video shows how hyper he gets just before bedtime...The music started skipping and he didn't seem to like that...Here he is before going to bed the other night:


-Nala just had to sniff him as I took the picture!-


-Trying to plug in the humidifier (Scary)-

Christmas Highlights

We had a wonderful Christmas! The best part is that we were surrounded by family. On Christmas eve we went over to Aunt Kay's and had a great time. Jacob danced in front of everyone while Randy's cousin Todd sang and played "Christmas Feeling" on his guitar! Jacob just loves to dance, and if people are watching him, he puts on a show! It was a special night and we all made it home safely.

Mark, Elisabeth and Slade stayed over night and it was fun having them here. It was about 3 hours past Jacob's bedtime by the time we got home Christmas eve....and he was out of control hyper and full of smiles and laughs! He finally fell asleep and slept until 9 on Christmas morning. We had the rest of the Taylors join us for our Christmas breakfast, and then we hung out and opened presents. The 3 Taylor tots were super cute and played well together. We finished off our day by going to the cemetery to visit Grandma Taylor, and then had dinner with Jon and Kevin. Our drive home from Kevin's was really scary because it was snowing and the wind was blowing really hard. The roads were really bad, so we had to be exra careful. We made it home in a little over an hour (it usually takes us about 30 mins), and thankfully we made it home safe and sound.

We hope everyone had a great Christmas as well, and we wish you a happy 2009!

Yay!



Some of you already know our good news...but some of you just found out today that we're expecting our second baby. We had an ultrasound yesterday and found out WE'RE HAVING A GIRL! It's so exciting, and almost unbelievable, because Randy's family is full of boys. We are so grateful and look forward to meeting our little girl. I think Jacob is going to be such a good big brother! He has been so loving lately, he even feeds(tries to feed) some of his stuffed animals.
We could not be happier with our news!

Christmas Lights

Tuesday night (according to the news) was the coldest night of the season...so far! So of course we went out and looked at the lights at temple square :)

We didn't get very many pictures, but we did get a couple of the Taylor Tots all bundled up! It was a fun night, and it was good to get together with Randy's brothers and their families. Our favorite was the nativity presentation, it re-emphasized what Christmas is all about...The celebration of Christ's birth.
