Wasn't it just October?

Wow the last couple of months seem like they have zoomed by and I feel like I blinked and missed a month or two! Here is an update on the last few things we've done...


The day after Thanksgiving we decided to start a new tradition of going downtown to look at the lights. We parked at my office and hiked walked to Gallivan Plaza. We arrived just in time for Kurt Bestor to sing my favorite song "Prayer of the Children" (which I saw him do in concert on the 12th and he is AMAZING!).
Then we walked over to Temple Square to deal with hoards of people look at the beautiful lights. Ok it wasn't THAT bad, but it sure was packed with people. I secretly wished I had worn my Utah apparel just to spite them all. Teehee. That's just the way I roll.

Gardner Village
Another favorite place of ours to go is Gardner Village. I had been wanting to visit their fantastic Christmas store, so what better excuse to go there! They have decorated the grounds with cute elves (which Tyson found somewhat scary at first) and lovely lights. I think I got some pretty cool shots if I do say so myself!

Tyson did NOT want to leave the elves once he realized they weren't going to maim him.

And finally, on Saturday we went to a "Breakfast with Santa" with my parents. Tyson had a blast! He was a little unsure about the gi-normous dog but he didn't cry at all when he sat on Santa's lap. And ironically, he had nearly the same photo as last year!! I did get a good one though.. I treasure these memories!

See what I mean?? He has the same look in both pictures!

Looks like you've been busy doing all sorts of fun stuff! Gardner Village is right near our house so we go there a lot. I don't dare go in the Christmas Store though unless I'm kid-free.

Tyson looks adorable with his blonde curls. What a little sweet pea.

Have a great holiday season.

You should have worn your UTAH clothes to the temple grounds...you would have had a lot of fans there! (Not all mormons are just BYU fans)LOL Your little guy is so much fun! I love all the pictures I get to see of him! When is #2 coming along???

Looks like fun. So what are your Utah clothes???

My University of Utah clothes of course! This was the week after the crushing of BYU and I of course wanted to rub it in. :)
