Christmas Festivities

Joe got up early on Christmas morning to shovel the driveway so we could head to Mimi and Papa's house (my parents) for Christmas morning. We asked Santa to show up at their house this year, we did not even put our tree up this year. I know, call us Scrooge, but Stella is obsessed with pulling off the ornaments and unwrapping presents. So instead of me being a wreck all month long we decided to just move Christmas to my parents. It worked out great.
When Stella woke up Joe was still shoveling so I opened the blinds so she could see him. She was mesmerized. She watched him laughing until he came inside for hot cocoa!

Christmas Eve was spent at my parents. We had soup and salad and then we did the traditional Christmas Eve festivities. My mom read the Christmas Story from Luke while the kids played the parts. Lexi and Landon were Joseph and Mary. Kaya was the Angel of the Lord and Stella was a very uncooperative Jesus. I'm pretty sure she did not feel very safe in the arms of a four year old. Joe read the Selfish Giant, the Littlest Angel was read and the kids got to open up their Christmas pajamas from Mimi!

Christmas morning Joe was the Short Order Chef, he took every ones orders and made them each their own special breakfast! He made eggs, french toast, and omelets. It was quite delicious. He may have felt obligated to cook since the monkey bread I made turned out to look like a "science project gone bad" according to my dad!
I did not get pictures of everyone... I know its unacceptable since I did get a camera for Christmas, but its hard to take pictures and chase a very busy one year old around the house. Stella's favorite presents were her Elmo books her face was priceless when she opened them! Christmas was a lot of fun - its always great to be with family!
On Saturday we went to Joe's sisters house for a Moss Family Dinner. We played games and ate great food, and of course I did not take one picture! Shame on me!

Little Red Riding Hood

Tonight we went to the Utah Flash game at UVU. Our Nephew Zak performed in the half time show doing some sweet karate moves. I am going to try and post a video of it but i've been having troubles with uploading. I took these cute pictures of Joe and Stella as we were walking o the car. Stella looked so cute bundled up in her little red riding hood coat, and daddy is always smiling at his little girl.

And on a side note... It looks like our baby is no longer a baby.. she is pure BIG GIRL now! I can't believe how fast she is growing up!! Sorry for those of you whose picture I did not take. I really need to get better at snapping more shots!

One more side note... I officially opened my Christmas present.... I have a new camera! I'm in love with it!!!

This is my adorable niece Kaya. Kaya came to play with Stella last week while her mommy was at work. She found one of my old makeup compacts and really wanted to play with it. So being the wonderful aunt that I am... I let her. She put it on me and kept telling me... "Lessy look soooo pretty". It was so cute! I guess she takes after her make-up artist mom when it comes to eyeshadow application! I look like a movie star!

She Climbs Again...

Miss Moss is quite the climber!! She is constantly climbing on tables, chairs, couches, toys... everything possible! I was in my office and heard her talking in her room. So i peaked my head in and found her on her bookshelf. I documented it with the cell camera (hence the poor quality). I apolizige for my voice... am I the only one that hates to hear my voice on videos?!?
