Finn LOVES guitars. He will 'play' our Guitar Hero guitar for 20+ minutes at a time. Is he too young for guitar lessons? Probably...but as soon as he can, we will. Here is a video of us putting on a concert...totally his idea. He opened the dishwasher, brought me the beaters and strapped on the guitar...and Aaron caught it on video
-- Potty Training. No need for details here, but let's just say it's been a long road (going on 3 weeks now) and the end is not really in site. I am being consistent though, and refusing to give up...and slowly he's coming around. He earned this cowboys and indians play set after he peed in the potty for the first time...it was a momentous occasion let me tell you.
-- He loves to say "No, YOU say it" over and over again when we ask him to say his prayers every night. We can usually get him to do it by saying "Okay, I'm going to say it" to which he replys "No, I say it!". Aaah, reverse psychology...a parent's best friend.

Look how tiny she used to be! Every day I am thankful that she is healthy since things could have turned out a lot worse due to my pregnancy complications. I can't believe she is almost 7 months old now! I just love this little girl.

Finn and Grammy on Christmas Eve
After the kids went to bed we stayed up late eating yummy treats and playing games with "It's a Wonderful Life" on in the background. The part at the end when Harry says "to my big brother George, the richest man in town." makes me cry EVERY time. I also love that they sing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". Man I love that movie.
My new bathrobe from Aaron! So soft and wonderful, I absolutely love it.
Finn with his spelling toy from Grandma and Grandpa Harker. He is really good at finding the letters all on his own and placing them in the right spots!
Aaron made a delicious Christmas Feast all on his own for us to enjoy! We had turkey and lots of yummy sides including sweet potatoes which he made just for me because I'm the only one that likes them :) Every day I am thankful to have a husband that likes to cook.
We also got Wii Resort from my parents for Christmas and had a great time playing it and a bunch of other games on Christmas day. This time of year just makes me so happy. I am so glad that I have a family of my own to share it with. I am also so thankful for the birth of our Savior -- the King of Kings born in the lowliest of circumstances -- who came for all of us that we might have real happiness here on Earth and in the life to come.
