Utes Gymnastics

Last night we went to the Utah Gymnastics meet. A good friend and co-worker of Dave's gave us tickets. We had to park at Rice-Eccles Stadium and take the Trax up the the Huntsmen Center. It was the first time any of us had ever ridden the Trax. In all the many years Trax has been around it was our first time ridding. Once we found our seats the band was playing music and Mia was getting down. Aleecia was excited and cheered really loud for Utah. During the floor routine Mia was doing her own routine. Unfortunately the Utes lost but did a fantastic job. After the meet there was so many people that we decided to just walk back to the car instead of waiting for the Trax. We have one more ticket and are excited to go again.

Mia thinks she is so funny

With each pregnancy I have all day sickness so, it hasn't been a big surprise that I have been sick this time around. Aleecia and Mia have been really helpful when I have been in the bathroom "losing it". Aleecia will run in with the box of "preggy pops"(little candy like things to suck on to help with the nausea). And Mia will run in and pat me on the back. I felt really bad for them and that they have to hear me until recently.
David had brought in the garbage can from taking out the garbage and Mia ran over to it and started making heaving sounds into it. Totally making fun of me and my situation. And if that wasn't enough just the other day I was in the bathroom cleaning when Mia came in and started spiting her apple into the toilet and making gaging noises. Sometimes she will just start making gaging noises and I know she is thinking she is so funny. I guess it doesn't help that I have to giggle a little. I didn't think kids started making fun of their parents until they were preteens.

Christmas 2010

Last year we started the tradition of going to Cabelas to sit on Santa's lap. The Santa is always a good one and you get a free picture. Aleecia asked for a pink bike without training wheels and Mia screamed her head off. It was classic.
Christmas Eve is always spent with Davids family. We eat my mother-in-laws tamales and hang out until midnight. At midnight we go around the room giving everybody a hug and wishing them a Merry Christmas. Each year we add someone to the mix. This year it was my nieces baby and another nieces fiance. Everybody buys something for everybody else so we have a heaping pile of presents to open. This year we had two piles. It's like a mad house with everybody opening presents. Mia got a shopping cart from mom and dad and wanted me to put it together right away. Then she wanted to sit in it and open her presents. After two hours of opening presents (it usually takes us three) it was time to pack up and go home. Once we got home the girls were wiped out and went straight to bed. We didn't wake up the next morning until 9:00. It's the same thing every year I have to wake up Aleecia to see what Santa brought. Santa pulled through and got Aleecia a pink bike and he got Mia a wagon. Christmas day we spend with my family so we packed up and headed to my parents to spend Christmas day. When we got there they were already opening presents and my dad was in the kitchen making egg McMuffins. This year we added a sister-in-law a niece and a nephew. After all the presents were opened we played bingo. Every time someone got a bingo you got to pick a gift from the table. We scored big time. My grandpa stopped by to see everyone and he had lunch with us. After a nap we headed home to put our stuff away. We ended up just playing with our stuff instead of putting it away.
