Feliz Navidad

We leave for Utah today!  Woohoo!  I cannot wait to see our families!  And eat my mom's yummy food!

Tessa has an appointment at Primary Children's in Salt Lake on Wednesday with a pediatric retinal specialist.  Then when we get home she has an appointment with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind. I am SO excited to get her started in therapy!

We made a gingerbread house!  Well, Trevor and Savannah made the gingerbread house.  Trevor has the Taylor creative, crafty genes.  It was so fun watching them giggle, making the gingerbread house while singing at the top of our lungs (with the Gifford voices we were blessed with) to Christmas music.  This is what I always dreamed of when I imagined having my own family!  I love the Christmas season and I love my cute little family!!

Sunday's are our favorite!  We love hanging out in our jammies (or naked Savannah when making something that stains) and baking yummy treats!


We had so much fun cutting down our own Christmas tree!  Savannah and I were so excited!  I think she is going to be a crazy Christmas lover like her Mommy!  Everything is so much more fun with kids! We found a beautiful full tree!  We loved watching Daddy and Nate saw it down!  The Anderson's invited us to go to a Japanese restaurant with them afterwards.  Seafood and sushi are Trevor's favorites!  I can't think of anything that makes me want to vomit more than the thought of eating seafood.  Ha!  But since it's Trevor's favorite and we were invited we went.  We sat around a Habachi.  I think that's how you say it and what it's called.  I wish I had taken the camera in.  It was such a fun experience!  They even had delicious steak!  Maybe this will be our new family tradition, cut down our Christmas tree and eat Japanese afterwards!  


We went to the lighting of the city's Christmas tree.  Santa was there too!  Savannah was SO excited to see Santa but wasn't so sure about sitting on his lap.  Once he started asking her what toys she wanted, she warmed right up to him!  Then we went and got ice cream afterwards.  It was such a fun night!
