Christmas Outings!

After a crazy time pushing our way through the mall, we have been enjoying some movies. Austin can sit through an entire movie on the big screen. I would highly recommend August Rush and Enchanted!

This year has been extra fun going to see the Temple lights. Austin was excited about all the beautiful colors and decorations. He loves to watch the videos inside the Temple also.

We took Austin to see the Nutcracker at the Mesa Arts Center. He really enjoyed the parts with the mice. I felt bad because we were in the second row, and Austin was switching seats every so often. We got the evil eye from a lady in front of us.(Keep in mind, he is two) He was very quite, but sitting for two hours watching ballet is a stretch. I kept it under control for the most part. This event truly helps you feel the joy of Christmas. It was an incredible show.

Austin isn't scared of Santa anymore. WHOOPEE! No crying, screaming or kicking. I don't think he completely comprehends the entire story, but Santa gives him candy. All I want for Christmas is a new addition to our family. Nothing makes me happier than being together!!

Isn't that a major thresh hold to cross. No more crying tantrums. I remember being scared of Santa! Nice full on bear Bryce was sporting today by the way!!

Wow you guys have been busy! Looks like you've been having lots of fun! I REALLY wanted to take the girls to see the Nutcracker this year but it never happened. Maybe next year. Isn't it so nice once they don't scream sitting on Santa's lap anymore!

Cute pictures Becky! I'm happy for you that Austin is so great on outings & with Santa. Makes life so much easier when they cooperate with our plans!! I'm very impressed that he went to see the ballet at 2 years old, I don't even know if Stratton would handle it well. Merry Christmas!

Hey Becky! Cute pictures...Austin is such a stud! Yeah, we are going to the thing tomorrow night. Brynnly loves playing over there. You better be going...at least knowing you will be there makes it worth going! I might be a little late though because one of my friends had her baby and I am bringing her dinner, so after that i will go.

we missed you at gingerbread houses! I hope that you are feeling better. Brynnly was flirting with Austin last night. She kept trying to sit on his lap, he was shy...it was so cute!

Hey Becky,
I thought I would say hi! I saw your link on Ami's blog. First of all I did not know that you married Bryce! Your little boy Austin is so cute. I have an Austin too. You look so great and your hair is so long! Great to see you!
