It's a week later, but here is my Christmas pictures post. Christmas Eve we spent at Brennen's parents. Haiden had a really high fever, 103.6, so he was asleep in the guest bedroom most of the night. Poor thing, he didn't get to open any of his presents and I really wanted his grandparents to see his happy little face as he opened up his gifts. Christmas morning is probably going to be my favorite family tradition. I love being cozy in our pajamas, just enjoying our little family. I found this awesome vintage rocking horse from the goodwill for Haiden and it was only $5! It was fun to see his excitement when he saw it in the living room Christmas morning. We spent Christmas day at my aunt's house. He was doing better there. He was still a bit irritable and didn't have much of an appetite, but was still able to run around and enjoy his new toys.

Christmas Party

I haven't posted in a while and we've enjoyed a lot of Christmas festivities since, so I'll probably be posting a lot about that this week. We had a Christmas party this past weekend, the first of what I hope to be an annual tradition. It was fun, we had about 15 guests and everyone got the chance to talk with each other. I was really happy that my friends from different aspects of my life got along well. We had a white elephant exchange, which was hilarious. Some people got ridiculous gifts and others got things they actually needed. In one of the pictures you can see a key hook that I used as my gift. Zach, who ended up with the gift, had just moved into his new apartment that day and said he could really use it.
I attempted to cook all the food for the party, but messed up a few things, including the fudge. Oh well, I'm learning.

Audrey Hepburn Print

Ikea has had a large Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's print at their stores for a while now. I love this print, because it's pretty affordable ($50), large enough, and so versatile. I wanted to buy it and put it somewhere in my living or dining room, but then I saw a picture of it over a bed and would like to do that in our spare bedroom. I don't have any furniture in that room now, including a bed, but once I've taken care of other home projects I'll be keeping my eye out for stuff at the thrift stores.
Here are some examples of how other people used the print.

My Happy Place

I love going to Disneyland. Haiden and I go all the time and once in a while I'll have the opportunity to go with just my husband on a date.
Here are some recent pictures from Disneyland

Tressa's Baby Shower

Yesterday we had Tressa's Baby Shower at my home. She got a lot of adorable things and Bailey really did a great job on the little center pieces and other decorations.
Every time I see an adorable little girls outfit when Bren and I are shopping I'll hold it up and say something like "AAAW, how cute is this? Should I buy it and save it for when we have a girl?". He always says no.
I really don't know what I'll do if I have all boys. I think I'll have to live vicariously through Autumn, Tressa's baby due in February. I asked Tressa yesterday how she would feel if I offered to baby sit Autumn one day and she came home in a different outfit. She said that would be okay, I will defiantly be taking Autumn shopping!
