Christmas Morning with the Parduhn's!

Lexi's 1st Christmas was a success! She loved it! Christmas morning we woke up at 5:45 a.m. to go out to Jami's to watch her kids open Christmas! We took a present for Lexi to open too! Her first present from Santa was a doll that she LOVED! She kept kissing and chewing on the doll all day!

It was fun to watch Jami's kids react to what Santa brought. I can't wait for Lexi to be excited for Santa to come! Here is a cute picture of Ryder in his new goggles. He is too cute!

We then headed back to my parents to open the rest of our gifts and for Lexi to take a nap.
Lexi had lots of help from her cousins opening her presents.

(sorry its sideways)
After Lexi went down for her nap we opened presents from each other and from my parents. Tip hid the new running shoes he bought me in a castle pinata. It was pretty funny. My parents gave us a new bbq grill that we can't wait to grill some steaks on!

Here is Jadi and Ryder trying to find the presents with there names on them!

Here is Lexi with all of her presents! She had a great 1st Christmas!

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve up with my family at the Woodruffs house. We has a blast! It was loud and crazy! We had excellent sandwiches, played our annual white elephant game and ended with a wild and crazy game of musical chairs. We laughed our heads off as the adults battled for chairs. At one point my dad even body slammed Kelly for a chair! Tip did really well and always made it to the last few chairs but never took the dollar (donated by Grampa Woodruff). My mom also gave out our traditional Christmas Pajamas! Lexi looked so cute in hers! We had so much fun! As usually I forgot to get out my camera but did take some cute shots of the kiddo's in their pj's!

We went to the mall Christmas shopping and decided to let Lexi sit on Santa's lap. We were kind of nervous because she is not a huge fan of strangers. But she did really good! At first she just stared at him and then she loved his beard! She had her fingers all in tangled in it. Even though Santa looked like he was 12, it was a great first Santa experience!

I love this picture! They are both just starring at each other!

We can't wait for Lexi's first Christmas. We know that she will love the wrapping paper and bows more then the gifts inside, but we are SO excited!
We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Pictures...

We had a great Thanksgiving up north with my family. While we were there we decided to take pictures of all 8 grandkids in their Christmas clothes. It was hard to get a good picture of 8 kids but we had fun trying!
Lexi just wanted to eat the red material we had her sitting on.
Most of her pictures have stuff in her mouth!

just a few CUTE pictures!

Lexi and Tip love to take naps together!

Lexi's puts absolutely everything she can get her hands on right into her mouth. We now have to be careful with what we have in her arms reach. I got a glass of water dumped on my lap at a restaurant the other day. Her new favorite thing to put in her mouth is her feet. She LOVES to suck on her big toe. It makes it a little difficult to change her diapers!

Lexi is the cutest piece of laundry that I've ever had in my laundry basket!
She gets more fun every day!

Crazy Weekend

My family came down for Jami to run the Snow Canyon Half Marathon. The weekend started out way fun and ended kinda crazy. The weather was great. We went to the park and out to dinner. Jami did great on her run in the morning. Then my dad and I spent the rest of the day and night with Jami in the hospital. She ended up getting her gallbladder out. Even with all the craziness its always enjoyable to have family here.
I didn't take enough pictures but I did snap a few.

Ryder loves the babies! He talks to them in a high voice. I can't wait to watch these 3 play together! Jadi and McCord took turns all weekend holding and kissing both Madden and Lexi.

Here is another snap shot of Lexi and Madden.

Lexi still is so fasinated with Madden and he still could care less about her!!

Here is Jami after surgery. She is pretty dang funny on drugs!!
