{making banana pancakes, pretend like its the weekend}

My wonderful in laws give us the best gifts ever! This year one of the gift we got was an awesome pancake skillet that brands the pancakes with jungle animals. 
so so cute. 
I was so excited this morning to make pancakes. My mother in law Judy also sent me a (Curious George Makes Pancakes) book with it and you bet I read it to Will after making pancakes. As you can see, he loved eating them. if you are reading this:
Thanks Judy and Keith for a wonderful gift.

also, we took these pictures with our new Nikon camera. thanks guys!

{i'm dreaming of a white christmas}

This Christmas was wonderful. Kent, Will and I celebrated Christ birth in our very own home. We had the best time of our lives. 
I will admit, at first i was a little hesitant of staying. 
I love spending time with my family. The Alvarez clan sure knows how to party and Christmas and New Years really shows how crazy we can get
On Christmas Eve Kent made a delicious ham, I made funeral potatoes and Will made a fun mess in the living room.
after dinner we went over to the Shepherds. We were are so grateful to be invited in their family traditions. After, we went home and Will got into his Christmas eve PJ. This year he got Toy Story PJ.and off to bed he went. 

On Christmas we opened presents, eat breakfast and watched Save by the Bell Wedding on T.V haha. i know. it was great. except for the fact that I felt really sick but good thing i didn't have anywhere to go.
Over all Christmas was wonderful! I am so grateful for a beautiful little family, an amazing husband and for another year I get to spend with my family on earth. Grateful for Christ and for what this season brings.

{tis' the season}

I love this holiday season.

 Today we went over to the Shepherds to spend some quality time with family. After dinner we went over to the Riverwoods and enjoyed some hot chocolate, Christmas music, lights and SANTA!!!! William got to meet Santa. He was not all the impressed. I have to admit... I was super excited for him to meet Santa. in fact I raced over to stand in line. Will was not having it, as you can see in the next picture...

Temple Square
and especially retelling the story of the Saviors birth.

 This year will be our very first Christmas alone. We are so excited to have our traditions combined and to start new ones. We are especially excited for William to experience his 2nd Christmas.  
We love you all and wish you a Feliz Navidad!!!!!
