It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We have been attempting to take full advantage of this Christmas season! Well, Shaun has been studying for finals for the better part of the month (and they are finally done…YEEEEEAH!) but Preston and I have been hard at work trying to be creative and crafty. Ada has been growing way too fast. She is starting to pull herself up on things-mostly low objects like the stairs, bath tub, laundry baskets, etc. but I am SO not ready for this moving and crawling business. She also just had 2 little teeth poke through! These kids…growin’ like weeds.

Christmas is fast approaching we we are very excited to celebrate the birth of our Savior. We are grateful for His life, which He gave for us and is the greatest gift we will ever receive! As much as I can this Christmas season, I am trying to remember that.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

On the move

Today is our little Ada Sue’s half birthday! 6 months old already?! Yep, it’s true. Here is a video from the other day. I can’t believe how well she gets around! I’m not ready for this but oh well. Ready or not here she comes.

(The video showed her climbing up the stair but apparently the file was too big so the hosting site chopped it off. Oh well, you still get to see her crawling!)

What we’ve been up to…

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had a nice one! We went up to Redding with the Strazzo side of the fam. Preston had fun with his cousins and Jami did a cute Thanksgiving Turkey feather hunt. Ada was loving all the attention.

My lovely, wonderful, favorite mother had a birthday this week and turned half a century old :) Though I don’t have any pictures of the day :( I love you mom! You do SO much for me…SOOOO much, I don’t know where I’d be without you! Probably in the loony bin :)

Ada is almost 6 months old and is crawling! What? Not yet girl. Please. I had video but I think I deleted it today!! I’ll get some more and post it. I really can’t believe her. She also tried some rice cereal the other day and LOVED it. She was grabbing Shaun’s hand trying to get more.

We have decorated for Christmas and I am loving it! Our home feels so nice and cozy. We also decorated Preston’s horse, just for fun.

Shaun is doing LOTS of studying…finals start on Monday (we are praying that there is no wave of the stomach flu in the middle of his test this time…)

And now onto the pictures!

Oh yeah, and there are a few from the fish hatchery! Fun, inexpensive entertainment! The salmon ladder is up and the salmon are jumping!
