We woke up to this load of presents... I guess this is what happens when you have six kids and a grandbaby! I think we will stick to having 2 or 3 ;)

We went to Idllewild to see my Aunt Tillie and cousins in the cabin they were staying in. It made our Christmas feel more like Christmas! Mike had a snow ball fight with my cousins Diego and Niko. We had hot cocoa and tamales... yummy! Later that night, Jeff made a delicious dinner, we watched a great movie called Namesake, and then opened presents. It was so fun... the best Christmas Eve yet.

I just wanted to let everyone know about my incredible savings I had at the grocery store. I've been using coupons ever since I heard about how much money you can save if you use them right (thanks Rachel!). I know this is a silly thing to blog about but I'm just so proud of it!!
I paid about $44.35 for $115.95 worth of groceries. So awesome!!!
I also bought 8 packages of diapers for $44.92. They were worth $95.92! Yay!

Max Slept through the night last night! I've been working on getting him to sleep through the night for a couple of weeks now and finally my lovely mother-in-law told me what she did with her five children at 8 weeks and I decided to do the same. It worked! We're so proud of our boy!

My sister bought me this poem book before I was even pregnant. She said it was for when we have a baby. Little did she know she would have a nephew 10 months later. The other day she sat with Max and read him poems for at least a half hour. He loved it! He seemed so intrigued. He loves his Tia Soin.
This past weekend we went to a thrift store to look for our halloween costumes and I found a boppy for $4. Yay! I've been wanting one but didn't want to spend the $. It was a little dirty so I had to wash it. I bought a really cute slip cover at Target and now it's perfect! Max seems to really like it too! :)

A couple of Sundays ago, we went to the Thorson's/Barnes' for dinner. It was really fun! We ate some yummy food and played a game. Then we just hung out...
Mia already loves Max. She's so gentle with him!

They came for the weekend to visit their nephew. It was a lot of fun! They are already such a good aunt and uncle to Max. He loves them so much! Saturday night we went to the drive in and on Sunday we had a picnic in the park. The weather was so nice that Max enjoyed a peacful nap on the picnic blanket.

What a good looking family!
