Merry Christmas!

Wow! We had a very busy, but a very fantastic Christmas!
We started off Christmas at our place with my family.
We had it a few days early, since my parents are going
on a hot holiday and it was the only time we could all get together.
It was great seeing everyone and spending time together!

Our Christmas Tree

Yes, Aiden is a teeny bit drooly lately!
Aiden got a new Pound Puppy (it's on the floor beside him)
He LOVES it!

After Christmas with my family, we headed out to the Big House
in Fernie for Christmas with Matt's family. His two sisters
and their families weren't there - and we missed having them around.
But I guess it did make for some extra room!

We were lucky enough to go snowboarding for one day - we wanted to go for more
but the snow wasn't that fantastic. Darn! It was still a lot of fun though!
And I am so grateful that people actually wanted to watch Aiden for a day! Thank you!
Me and Kristy (Matt's Sister)
Me and Matt didn't get any pictures together - the camera died :(

Christmas Eve was spent playing a few games
and doing the traditional Christmas Eve Stuff. Very nice!

And we had a bit of playing outside too! Aiden only wanted to be outside
He LOVED it!

And Christmas Morning!
Our Family - ignore the tired, sick looking us!
I also finally finished making stockings. They were super annoying to make
but I'm real happy with them! I think they look great!

Now Christmas is over, and we are just hanging out at home
until Matt goes back to school. It's kindof nice to just relax together!
Hope everyone else had a great holiday!

The Cookie!

The other day me and Aiden were at Safeway buying groceries. We got in line to pay and an older guy got in line behind us. Aiden stared at him for a really long time, it was funny! Aiden wouldn't smile, wave, move, nothing. Anyways, this guy was buying a big tub of cookies. He asked if Aiden could have one - and I said "Why Not". So, he gave Aiden this cookie. Aiden took it and held it and continued to stare at the guy. He wouldn't bite his cookie, wouldn't let me put it in his mouth and definitely wouldn't let me take itaway. It was really funny!
I let Aiden hold his cookie all the way home, and once we got home, he still wouldn't let me take it
away. I put him in his high-chair with his cookie
and he played with it for about half an hour.
And he only ever ate the teeniest tiniest
bite - What a nerd!!

And I know that picture of Aiden is not very flattering - but he wasn't into the camera that day!

It has been a busy few weeks here for the past little while. Just a quick update for you. Matt was in McLennan for the past 2 weeks working at a clinic that the school has up there. It's really great because it gives the students a chance to do more 'real-life' dentistry. Matt really really liked it! He especially liked being able to make his own decisions about things and not having to wait for an instructor to check every single thing that he does. Not surprisingly, he is even more sick of school now! Oh well. Only 5 more months left. I'm really excited to be done with school and to be moving on to bigger and better things!

While Matt was gone me and Aiden were pretty busy. The first week I was doing a lot of running around trying to get everything ready for our Super Saturday. What a bunch of craziness!! Anyways, Super Saturday is over and done with and I couldn't be happier!! It's probably bad of me - but I am extremely happy that I will not be living here when the next one comes around!!

This last week me and Aiden went down to Medicine Hat for the week. It was a lot of fun to see my parents and Connor. Aiden really liked having people play with him - and I think my parents liked to play too! We took him to the YMCA one day - they set up mats, tunnels, balls, and have a giant bouncy house thing. Aiden really liked it I think. He also got to go swimming with Grandpa - which he LOVED!! I have never heard him laugh so hard in his life. It was so funny! On the way home we also had a real quick stop in Rosemary. It would have been nice to stay a bit longer - oh well.

Now we are all back at home - which is nice! I missed Matt a lot!! And I think he missed us too! The only other new thing is that Aiden has been walking a whole bunch lately - which has been fun. Every day he gets a little bit better! I'm looking forward to not having to carry him around as much - and to his pants not wearing out so quick! What a turkey!

Oh, it snowed quite a bit here a few weeks ago so I decided that we should probably build a snowman. I got Aiden all dressed up in his new snow-suit and took him outside. It lasted about 3 minutes - we were back in before Matt even made it outside. haha! Aiden still has a long way to go before he enjoys the snow!

Last weekend we were in Rosemary with Matt's family. His sister Kim and her family just moved to New Zealand - so we all wanted to see them one last time before they left. We had family pictures done at the old farm and they turned out great! (no, I didn't take them)

While we were out at the farm - I had to sneak in a few pics of my own.
It was such a beautiful day and the farm is such a great place for pictures!

Yummy Birthday Cake

Aiden had a pirate ship cake for his birthday.
I don't have a picture of the cake (they all turned out a bit blurry - weird)
but it was only medium cute.
I am definitely not a pro-star cake decorator...
but I think Aiden still enjoyed his treat!
