Enjoying the Christmas Season

December is here and we have begun celebrating! Payson is way too cute in his Santa hat. He went caroling in it on Sunday. Patrick put up our "wee" tree.

We made "gingerbread" houses with good friends. Erica won the contest for best house -she is real good with candy!

Payson is starting to enjoy "tummy time" -he lasts about two minutes until he starts crying now. We really like getting him to smile. Sometimes he confuses smiling with sadness as he now will smile as he starts to cry. This is mom's fault for constantly trying to get him to smile because she thinks it's soooo cute!

Thankful for Thanksgiving!

We had a lovely Thanksgiving in Provo, Utah with all of Patrick's family. After the second annual turkey trot (well -for Jenna and I), we had a delicious meal that I didn't have to do any cooking for! Patrick's sisters did a great job! We spent the next day taking family pictures and glazing ceramics at Color Me Mine. Patrick made a "hunny" pot and I made a "you are special" plate. Saturday we went to the BYU vs Utah rivalry football game. Even Payson bleeds blue wearing his "Y" onesie. On Sunday Payson and his cousin Sterling were blessed. Payson was NOT very reverent and screamed the whole time. Hopefully this will not become a tradition in our family! It turns out Payson doesn't like being pulled out of his carseat in the middle of his sleep and getting hatted and held out in the middle of a circle of men. Either that, or he doesn't like his name! :)

(Below is Patrick and Payson getting pumped up for the blessing. See how strong the Lewis boys are!)
