Trax and temple square

This last Saturday, we took Collin on the train (trax) to see Temple Square. I knew the train would be a bit hit, since he is kind of becoming obsessed with trains. Yep, he sure was. He was talking about it all day Saturday, and then when we got on the train... yes, he loved it. He loved to go over the bumps, the beeping noises, and to see the train floor move when it made turns.
He wasn't quite as big of a fan of the lights as I thought he would be, but it was still very fun. I've decided we will have to ride the train again in the daytime.... without quite as many people. It was pretty crowded, but it was a fun time.

OUr first "thomas" pajamas

I know it's not the best focus, but a friend is lending us the Thomas the Train pajamas. They are a HUGE hit!

Decorating for Christmas 2010

We put up our Christmas decor the day after Thanksgiving. Collin LOVED decorating and all things Christmas this year, which made it even more fun.
My favorite new thing is the Fisher Price nativity scene his grandma got him. Baby Jesus has been lost, found and lost twice, and is now I think permanently lost. Luckily, Mary and Joseph have picke up the slack.
Collin loves to take them everywhere, they watch him eat, they watch him sleep, they do lots of things, and they talk. It's so fun to talk to him about Baby Jesus. Right after we say Baby Jesus, he usually says "baby brother in mommy's tummy" so it also helps us talk about the baby brother coming in about a month...
Yeah for Christmas!

First snow of 2010

A couple of weeks ago, we had the first massive snowstorm in Utah. It's hard to tell from this picture, but half of one of our big trees came down in the night.... you should see all the branches.
It snowed....and snowed....and snowed.
Finally, I got out Collin's massive snowsuit so he could help daddy shovel. Poor daddy, he had to shovel at least 4 times that day.
Collin loves the snow. Ironically, now, all our snow is basically gone.
