Christmas with the Birds










We have been enjoying our time off together with the rest of the Bird Family. Kim & Alan rented a house for us all to stay together in. Brighton has been learning to share his toys with Cousin Tanner as they always seem to want the same toy. We had a wonderful Christmas and are so grateful for this time of year.

Now and Then

Christmas 2010


Christmas 2009



Not only does Brighton look just like his daddy he loves all the things his daddy loves...CARS is large on the list. Last year for Christmas my parents got Brighton a push car and he has played with it pretty much everyday since the day he opened it. This year they got him an electric one. My dad charged it before it was wrapped so as soon as Brighton opened the car he was able to hop on and go. He had to get the hang of pushing the button instead of using his feet. The first night he would only push it for a second at a time so he kinda jerked around. Now he holds it down and goes all around the house. Both days he's had it he has worn the battery down.

Early Christmas

Since the married couples don't get to go home for Christmas this year Mama and Papa Albright came up to celebrate with us for an Early Christmas. It was so fun to have all the family together. The babies love to have all their aunts, uncles, and grandparents around and love the constant attention even more. We were spoiled with Christmas presents. They had to drive home in the Snow but were able to have a little White Christmas for a change.

When Bugs saw Heidi on the couch he didn't want to do anything but play with her.

I found these cute little antlers at the dollars store. They loved wearing them around.

Brighton is the Ice Cream king and had to eat mine as well.

Bugs and his Gramma. He loved having her over to play with him.

K's Christmas dress my mom got last year after Christmas for only 5 dollars. SHe looked so cute!

Opening is new car. This year he got a motorized one!

Grandparents and babies.

All the kids. We're getting so big its hard to take a decent picture.

Stockings and Santa

Last night we went to see Santa at the ward Christmas Party. We had been prepping Brighton by pointing out Santa whenever we saw him in Christmas decorations, he has worn Santa PJ's the past few nights and we waved to him while in line. Brighton did alright; he liked the orange that Santa gave and at least he sat next to him :)


Over Thanksgiving Break our mom taught us how to sew Stockings. Amy came over last night and we finished ours so they are ready for Santa in a few weeks!! I am very proud of us! I am working on the new babies but it won't be completely done since we don't have a name picked out. Everyones will be made out of the same 5 fabrics but then each kid will have one fabric of their own. I love the dark blue in Brighton's. Chris loved it too since he tried to say that one was his but I got Brighton's name on it so he can't steal his. HAhA!! THanks mom we love our stockings!!



Amy couldn't decide to put Amy and Woody since someday they will be MOM and Dad but for now she thought Amy and Woody fit best. We really struggled with the puffy paint; it stinks that the last part can really mess up your stocking and there is no going back but we did pretty well after a few bloopers.

The baby is...

video


It took a few tries on the video to get Brighton to say it right and we bribed him by promising he could jump down after he said the right word. :) He's a smart one!
