Christmas 2011

Last post about 2011!!  Yay!

We spent Christmas in Florida this year with my family and all of Dallins. We hadn't had a time all together like that in a long time, and never with all the cousins. I wish we could do it so much more often!!

We spent some down time at the park one day and had a blast watching the kids run around in the perfect weather.

Almost every night Olivia fell asleep out of pure exhaustion.
Christmas was a lot of fun! We spent the morning with my family and then headed over to the Sauser's. Olivia still didn't quite understand the idea of opening presents, but she sure did like playing with them. She was spoiled rotten (and not by her dad or me).

 By the time the presents were open and church was over Olivia was over the day and just needed a nap.
 We were all very tired.

We also spent a few days at sea world (Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Sauser).
We had a great time! We are already saving our pennies so we can head back again soon.

I'm still trying to catch up.

For Thanksgiving we loaded up the car and drove the 12 hours to Utah. We first stopped in Tooele to surprise my little brother who has been living with the best family ever, the McNeill's. Then we headed to Eagle mountain to spend time with Dallin's sister and her family. We had a blast! Olivia sure loves being with her cousin Max (Maa). I wish we lived closer together so that they could be best friends. I didn't take many pictures with my camera, but I got a few of the cute cousins together on my phone.

We were lucky to catch up with some of our favorite people in the whole world the Bodily's. It was so fun to catch up with them.

We also were able to head to Temple Square in Salt Lake City to see all the beautiful lights that they put of every year. We had to bundle up because it sure was cold!

Thanks everyone for making our Thanksgiving great!

Yes, I know its already after the new year, but...ok I don't really have an excuse. Better late then never, right? And yes I still have a Thanksgiving and Christmas post coming soon to a blog near you.

For Halloween Olivia and I were visiting family back in Orlando. We had a great time. Olivia enjoyed all the attention and I enjoyed the much long talks with my parents. Olivia was Dorothy this year right down to the red sparkly shoes. I made her costume this year. It turned out a little big, which just means I might use it again next year. Here are some pictures.
