Since Landon will be arriving soon and will be needing the crib, we decided it was time to get Makayla a big girl bed. We found that it was cheaper to buy bunk beds than it was to buy a single twin bed. We also bought two matching dressers. She was so excited when they came today. Her room looks great with the new beds and bedding. I will post pictures of Landon's room once it is all ready.

Last Monday Makayla and I started going to a Mommy and Me class. It was so much fun! There are about 20 children in the class along with a parent. At this class the kids have free play, then they can make a craft, then we have circle time where we sing songs and then the parents have a discussion time. After that it is snack time, and then the kids can play and make another craft. Right before we leave we have another circle time where the kids play with this big tarp thing. Makayla loves it! I am so glad that I finally have the chance to do this with her. Some women from church also bring their children so it makes it even more fun. Here are some pictures from class this past Monday.
This Year Makayla was older so she was able to say up until midnight to celebrate the New Year with us. Our family tradition on new years eve is that we go to my mom's house, watch a movie and eat a bunch of finger foods and junk food. It's the best! Once the new year arrived we went outside and sprayed each other with silly string and drank some sparkling cider. 2008 was a great year for us, and we look forward to 2009 and all that it will bring. Especially our little boy!
I know it's a little late, but I finally uploaded pictures from Christmas. Makayla had fun decorating the tree this year. We got some cute pictures of her doing it. Santa came to visit Makayla at Grandma Trimmell's house this year. She was excited to get a present from him, but did NOT want to sit on his lap. She didn't cry, but she definitely didn't want to be very close to him, at least not by herself. Christmas was so much fun this year because Makayla was older and knew what to do this time. She was so excited when she saw a tent, sleeping bag and blow up couch from Santa. From mom and dad she got new pajamas, a new outfit to wear on Christmas, chapstick (because she loves it) and a princess fold up doll house. After opening the presents she asked for "more". Michael surprised me with a heart shaped diamond necklace. It is beautiful!! Other than that, we both knew what we were getting. Mostly clothes, shoes, books etc. After that, we went to my mom's house to have breakfast, and to talk to my brother Justin who is on a mission in Mexico. It was really great talking to him! Next we went to Michael's sister's house for lunch and to open presents with his family. Makayla got a lot of clothes and toys! Her favorite was a doll set that came with a baby sized play pin, stroller, and swing. Landon got a few gifts as well. After that we went to my grandma's house to open gifts with them. Then we went back to my mom's house for dinner and to open more presents. Her favorite was a chest full of dress up princess clothes with jewelry, crowns and more. Overall, we all had a great Christmas.
