christmas two thousand thirteen.

we had such an amazing christmas with both of our families this year!  we started off with the westwood's at pf chang's for a delicious christmas eve dinner.  we spent the night at their home in springville and woke up christmas morning to the most delicious breakfast {aebleskivers & the works by breakfast chef isaac} and had the best time opening presents with baby soeyer!  she made it so much more fun.  i can't wait until our baby boy is in the mix next year. 
 my in-laws spoiled our baby with the sweetest gifts, including this little elephant backpack.  i just died when i saw it.  she also included a few things that were isaac's as a baby - tiny sneakers, a bow tie, socks and a little cap.  i can't wait for baby to wear them. 
for virlie's christmas present isaac re-did her little toy chest that her father made her when she was a little girl.  he stole it from their basement when we moved at the end of the summer and has been working on it ever since.  he had it professionally stripped because it was painted with lead paint and then he rebuilt and refinished it.  he is a talented man and we all love how it turned out!  soeyer and future grandbabies are sure to love it for years to come.  here is a before and after...
amazing right?!!

christmas afternoon we headed over to my family's house for the evening and had a fabulous christmas dinner.  we were spoiled some more and got the most thoughtful gifts.  it was so fun having my brother dallin home from brazil to celebrate with us {no pictures were taken because my siblings were in their jammies all day, ha!}  my parents got me some really great maternity clothes that will help keep me fashionable as i get larger and larger, which i desperately need!  and isaac surprised me with the best/craziest gift of all!  an imac computer!  which i am currently using right now.  i am so in love and so grateful for the much needed, very thoughtful gift.  it was such a big surprise, my pregnant self couldn't help but cry.
christmas pup.
 26 week christmas belly.  time is flying!
 our last christmas just the two of us.  i love this hubby so much.

i love christmas and always feel so sad when it's over.  isaac has been bugging me to take down the tree and i don't wanna!  but, it is time to move on and enjoy the new year - which includes my birthday, planning the babe's nursery {which isaac & his parents painted last weekend - it looks amazing!!!}, and lots of other baby prep before our due date of april 2nd!  ahhh!!

phew!  last christmas post before the new year.  i hope you all enjoy the last few hours of 2013.  see ya next year!
