Early Christmas

So Cris is away in China (yet again) and will be gone until after the New Year:(
Which is sad because it's Ethan's first Christmas and Daddy won't be here to see it. (sigh) I guess it's a good thing he's young enough that he hasn't the slightest clue of what's going on and could really care less.
Cris's family is the greatest! They did Christmas early this year since Cris is gone and E and I are headed up to Utah in just a few days. It was so fun and E man got SPOILED! It was such an awesome day. We went up to Logandale around 10 am and found the CUTEST little yard to take family pics in. The yard was full of beat up tractors and old gas pumps, it was perfect for what I had in mind! My beautiful, wonderful, talented sister-in-law Molly took the pics. They turned out so cute and I couldn't be happier with them!! You must check her out! Her photo blog is

So after pics we went to my other amazingly talented sister-in-law's house. It was decorated so beautifully! It truly made it feel like Christmas eve! Santa even stopped by for a visit... that did not go over so well with the boys. All 3 of them were screaming and he literally scared the poop out of Ethan... I think we forever ruined his relationship with Santa, poor kid.
Then it was yummy food and after that, present time! I can not tell you how much Ethan got from "Santa" this year. He's been a very good boy:)
