Swimming with the WHOLE Harris Clan!

At the beginning of January, Jeff and Tricia were able to come to St. George from Alaska. It was an absolute blast! We hadn't seen them in so long. Lexi absolutely LOVED Trish and Jeff. She loved having them sleep at our house and every morning ran to Tricia and jumped in her arms. We had so much fun but didn't get much sleep. We miss Jeff and Trish so much! Tip and I loved hanging out and talking with them. We have always had so much fun being together since we all started dating at the same time.
I struggled with my picture taking skills of the crazy weekend. I did however take a ton of pictures of everyone swimming. I choose to not scare people by putting my extra large pregnant self in a swimsuit and sat on the sideline snapping away. Lexi loves water. She spent the entire time in the water. She loved getting splashed, thrown in the air and jumping off the side. She didn't want to get out. In fact, when she was shivering I had to force her to get out.
The next weekend we had the opportunity to go up north to go through the Temple with Tricia and then attend their sealing the next day. It was such a great spiritual weekend! They looked beautiful and very much in love! Thanks Jeff and Trish for letting us be apart of your special day! We love you and miss you!

Christmas Day 2011

We have had a very busy January this year so I am just now trying to catch up with blogging.
We had an amazing, relaxing Christmas. We spent the night at my parents house with Karson and Linzy and their boys too. The kids woke up at 7 and Madden and Lexi were thrilled! They were so excited. The funny things about these two they loved each others toys just as much as their own. Lexi loved opening presents and was ripping them open so fast. Then she helped everyone else open. She got a kitchen, a new baby, food, dishes, clothes, a little people castle, bracelets, a mini tramp and animals and more. She was so excited and loved everything!! After breakfast all my brothers and sisters and their families (minus Jake and Wendy who we missed!) met at my parents ward for their Christmas sacrament program.  We then headed to my parents got back into our Christmas jammies had a fabulous dinner and opened more gifts. My parents gave Lexi and new strider bike and doll. She loves her bike. She can't quite reach the ground but ask us to take her own rides daily. They also spoiled Tip and I as always. We then just hung out all day. It was nice to not have to travel and just enjoy the holiday. Kids definitely make holidays way more fun. Lexi had a blast and enjoyed every minute of it. She loved spotting Santa and saying HOHO. She loves being with her cousins and we barely see her when we are all together. As you can see from the many, many pictures that Tipper got me a new camera! I love it!

 When we got home from up North and got Lexi's presents out it was like Christmas all over again. She loved it!!
