I have been keeping some of Lydia's art work to frame.  I just scanned some in today here are some of my favorites!  Both girls are in love with coloring they sit forever making pictures.  It is so fun seeing what she comes up with.  

I can't believe that my baby girls is almost two years old.  Penny, is obsessed with her boots. Which she has a ton of I can't resist them!  I feel like she is communicating so much better which makes both of us much happier.  My favorite thing to hear her say is "Nasty"  I know this is a weird word but she says it all the time when she thinks something is gross and it makes me laugh every time!  She has such a fun personality and is a big tease.  She is constantly teasing Lydia which I think is funny since Lydia is the older one it seems like it should be the other way around.  

These girls are becoming the best playmates.  Penny was sad and she wanted to lay and watch a movie with Lydia.  She didn't want anything to do with me! It kinda made me sad but I am so glad that she loves her sister so much.

I think that she wishes it would snow!

While Penny was napping Lydia ask me if she could make her own PBJ sandwich.  I told her she could but she need to be sure to clean up when she was done.  I went down stairs to find her all set up at the table with her sandwich. ( Yes, we know its January and she has dressed herself for July)  She did a great job and she cleaned up when she was done.  I think I will put her in charge of lunch everyday!  I am starting to wonder if they need me around with Lydia making lunch and doing hair.

Lydia started ballet class this month.  She was so excited.  I didn't get very many pictures because I was feeling horible which I later found out I had a kidney stone. (first one ever and hopefully the last) She is taking the class with her friend Jada from school.  I already had to buy new leotards because she wore them out in the first week practicing at home.  She loves getting all dressed up and putting on shows for Taylor and I.

I caught Taylor  in Penny's room rocking her to sleep and I had to get my camera.  My favorite is the one where Taylor is mad and telling me to stop taking pictures and get out because he was afraid I would wake her up!  I told him he will be glad later that I took these.  He eventually retreated to our room on our bed and I still took a picture!  I love watching Taylor with our girls he is such a sweet and gentle dad.  

Please can anyone explain to me why he wouldn't want anymore kids?

On Tuesday I was making great efforts to catch up and get the house back together from the long holiday break.  So I neglected Penny's hair all day.  So Lydia decided to take it into her own hands.  She did Penny's hair all by herself and she also added the accessory of sunglasses.  It was the best part of my whole week.  These two girls are starting to be the cutest playmates.

I promise this is the last Christmas post.  Christmas morning was so much fun this year.  Lydia loved all of her things from Santa but she liked the gum and crafts the best.  Penny didn't care what she got she just wanted everyone around her to know it was hers.  She put all of her things inside a box and carried them around telling everyone "mine".  It was fun having church on Christmas day this year it made the day seem less commercialized.  After opening presents, church and lunch we left to come home to have Christmas with Taylor's family.  I didn't get any pictures of that (I forgot my camera) so you won't have to suffer though anymore Christmas pictures.

Christmas Eve the kids got to open presents from my parents.  They all loved there new pajamas.  Kalli gave a presentation on the Savior followed by the kids performing musical numbers.  Dad made his famous prime rib it was so yummy.  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for having this crazy group it was so much fun.

We spent Christmas in Beaver this year.  It was cold but Christmas eve day we took a walk to the park to let the kids get their energy out (and keep them out of the presents).  It is so fun to have all the cousins together and feel the kids' anticipation as they wait for Christmas morning.  I remember as a child loving Christmas eve and I still think it is my favorite day even over Christmas day itself.  I love the food, family and thoughts of the Savior that make Christmas eve so special.
