Baby showers

I just wanted to thank all my family and friends for great baby showers. it was so nice to relax, visit with family-the girls ...and get better prepared for having a BOY! There are so mnay fun things out there for babies and Andrey and I are so blessed and grateful for those that threw the baby showers for us. Thank you everyone for your love and support and we are so excited to have baby Ethan as part of our family. 5 more weeks!!!

Merry Christmas

(Ellie had a little too much fun) and this is how we found her in the backseat) lol

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this 2010 year. Our girls were so excited to go to all the ward Christmas parties where they got to meet Santa Clause, go to Festival of Trees and get their picture taken with Santa Clause and see the programs, buy treats, and look at all the pretty trees. We had fun going to family parties, having White elephant exchanges, yummy food, gifts for the girls, and waking up Christmas morning to find that Santa had eaten his cookies and drank his tall glass of milk. The girls loved getting so many fun things. Most of all, Ellie was excited to get her puppy Pillow Pet and Emma to get her "video game" Leapster with the "Tangled" game. We had fun visiting all our grandparents, getting new pjs, camping items for the "cousin's sleep over," tall stockings full of goodies, toys, Emma's lady bug "Pillow Pet" and Ellie's Barbie that she just loves to decorate and make her hair "long long and so pretty".
It was so nice to have Andrey home and not out plowing snow, so that was my favorite Christmas gift this year.
We had such a nice and relaxing Christmas and a happy new year spending time with cousins and aunts and uncles, eating good food and watching movies and playing games.
But most importantly, we are so grateful for our Savior, for his birth, his atonement and Resurrection after death, and the life He lived for each of us. We are so blessed to feel of his constant Spirit and are grateful to have it here in our home and to share it with those around us.
