Mini Vegas Vacation

Last weekend Jami and Courtney came to St. George for Courts 30th birthday. They wanted to spend a day in Vegas and so we tagged along. It was so fun! We spent the day just walking the strip, eating a buffett, and enjoying the people watching! Lexi did so good! She enjoyed sitting in her stroller and just hanging out! She ate her weight in puffs and is quite a people watcher. We hardly heard a peep from her! That night Court and Jami enjoyed a show and we decided to stay in a hotel. It was a fun and relaxing weekend! Thanks Jami and Court for letting us tag along on your kid-free weekend!

(the only downside of the trip, I forgot to take very many pictures!, opps)

Movie date...

Lexi has been going to the movies with us since she was a week old. Although, she is getting a little more difficult we have found that if we go to an early show and give her own seat she does well. We hope that she continues to love movies just like her Mommy and Daddy!
 I love this picture! Lexi loves drinks! If it has a straw she thinks its hers.
This is her sucking down some water!
She is getting so big! 

Tubby Time...

Lexi loves to get in the tubby. She starts flapping her legs and arms the minute I say "wanna get in the tubby?" She has always been a major splasher and since she has been sitting up she loves tub toys. Her new thing is when I sit her in the tub she scoots on her bum clear to the front of the tub. I don't know if she likes it up there because of the drain or because it traps her toys and they can't float away.
Bath time is a highlight of our day!

New Trick!

Lexi has learned how to stand holding onto something. She thinks this is quite a neat new trick. She loves playing in the toy box, although she hasn't figured out how to sit once she is standing, so she gets frustrated sometimes. Also she can't move her feet so she just stretches her arms and reaches until she either topples over or gets the toy. She is so funny to watch. It seems she learns something new each day. I love watching her world expand.
(yes that is a curler in her hair)
Leaning to get her toy.
Of course she wanted the biggest toy in the box!
I love this smile!

Christmas with the Harris Clan...

We enjoyed the second half of Christmas Day and the day after with the Harris Family. We had a blast as always when we get together. Diana and Gary spoiled all of us! Tricia and Jeff came from Alaska and it was SO fun to see them! We got to have family pictures taken, although it was FREEZING, we can't wait to see them! Diana also organized a Dance off with the Wii, and my AMAZING Hubby and his slick moves was the CHAMP!! It was pretty hilarious to watch and yes we got it on video! Once again I struggled with my camera and am planning to steal some from Trish's blog (hint, hint), but here are a few!
