{holidays}: the end of the year in pictures

So, these are backwards, this being the most recent with the last being the furthest away.
I love, love, love her little naked bum. I love it!
Ok, so I was at Old Navy and they have the exact same glasses for grown-ups...I may have to return and purchase them. Believe me, pictures will follow...
This is Paisley Ice Skating...she really liked it...kind of...when she wasn't frowning or sleeping.
This was our Gingerbread House this year. It kind of sums up the effort put into the holiday season outside of work...we were going for a modern, clean look...
Oh yes, that is Jon ice skating in ST GEORGE UTAH! Never has such a thing happened before, and we will see if it happens again-the ice was terrifying! It was all slushy and a bit melty and it cost $19!!!!
Paisley's first go with rice cereal. She loved it. It was so funny!
Paisley and I decided to go out and enjoy the nice weather and walk to Target to check out some of the after Christmas sales...we found some sweet stuff including the new mario wii game...awesome!
Christmas morning at the Davis household, 2009.
Our fancy Christmas Eve feast! I will someday post my turkey recipe on here-so good!
Jamie and I enjoying some Christmas Eve banter...
Our tree.
Christmas Eve morning. I had to go out for some reason and I returned to find these two all snuggled up together...
Our Christmas Goodies! I love making Christmas Candy and that was just not a tradition I was willing to give up this year. I may have made it all at 11:30 pm, and I may have started the kitchen on fire (toffee is very, very flammable) and I may have freaked out Jon and woke up the neighbors, but boy was the fudge good...
Paisley's first haircut. She has had 2 more since then. I don't know what to do with it-just the top and lower back keep getting long until she looks like a little ragamuffin...
Naked Baby!
Oh yes, it does exist. This mythical bus I speak of-it's real, and so is the snow on it-in St George! Come spring we are all going for a ride-its time!
My frozen garden. :(
This was our Thanksgiving. We were tired of being orphan children to everyone so we decided to go to Vegas this year. I didn't leave the store until 2 am Thanksgiving morning and with Black Friday following we decided to stay home instead. I had made absolutely no preparation for Thanksgiving at home so we were off to Wal-mart for some goodies and we sat around and slept and watched movies all day. It was a bit sad, but at least it was restful...

Well, Jon finally decided to unleash his rants to the masses on the internet and officially started his own blog. Be forewarned: I have heard all these rants before and it is not for the weak of stomach. I am excited for him to have this new project, he loves it and built the entire thing himself which is even cooler. If you would like a look inside the mind of Jon, go here.


{holidays}: resolutions

I've always wanted to make and keep New Year's Resolutions. And for awhile, I made new resolutions every year and every year I had already quit mid-February. I am proud to say that sometime around the beginning of last year I decided to commit to getting to church on time and I can happily say that we have been successful with that. Which is even more amazing because we have a munchkin. This year I need to come up with a new lifestyle. I know that sounds weird, but I can't use the word diet. You see, I need to lose weight, but I must, MUST do it in such a way that I can maintain. I feel so cliche saying that is my resolution, but really, it's what I need to do. Pregnancy conviently provides your body with extra skin in which to fill with fat unless you do something about it and I'm thinking now is better than later. I'm struggling...if I count every calorie I put in my mouth I feel like I'm dieting and ultimately I feel deprived and I binge. Sadly the only time in my entire life I have successful lost weight is when I gave up food altogether. I can't do that right now because a. it's bad and b. i'm a cow. literally. And I was dancing 6 hours a day. I just don't have time for that at this point. This discourages me. A lot. Ever time I've commited to losing weight I have failed which has actually led to weight gain. I've worked out for months at a time on a strict diet and had absolutely nothing happen. I don't budge a pound. Needless to say, I am very afraid to make any commitments, but at the same time, I need to get it together. I don't know what to do. I'm frustrated...
