So I have been reading other blogs and everyone is posting about their Family Christmas traditions so I decided I should list some of mine.

Both of my parents are from Peru, so in our family we always celebrated on Christmas eve as well as on Christmas day. We would get the family together on Christmas Eve and have hot chocolate and treats as my dad gave us a little devotional on the birth of our savior. We would then sing Christmas music and wait till midnight to open our gifts. I know right what fun is that, but it was. We would stay up all night playing with our new toys. If Santa brought us anything we would get it the next morning. Mostly it was our stockings that would be filled the next day.

On Christmas Day we kept the traditional Christmas dinner with all the family. My mom would make delicious Peruvian food along with traditional American food. Let me just tell you by the end of that we were stuffed and it was time for a nap, lol.

When I was dating Jason his family invited me a couple of times to their homes for Christmas breakfast. After breakfast we would open gifts and than go sledding. Once I married into their family I discovered their tradition of cutting down their own Christmas tree after thanksgiving. My mom always had an artificial one, but now I am in LOVE with real, fresh trees.

Now that we have our own little family of three...soon to be four, I would love to start our own traditions. Haven't quite thought of anything yet, but I will be working on that for next year.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get everything you want!!!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas?

Cadence had so much fun decorating the tree this year...we let her put the ornaments on, good thing they are plastic, lol.

It doesn't quite feel like winter here yet, but when I step into my house I don't even notice the difference. I love Christmas!!

I was very scared when I thought of having our first Thanksgiving alone...I mean cooking a turkey?... me really? But I was totally relieved when Jason's uncle invited us over this year. He lives in Lake Havasu City. It was such a beautiful day and not to mention a very yummy dinner. After dinner we played at the park and came back for pies and cinnamon rolls. Than it was more games. We had a blast and Cadence had a lot of fun getting all the attention from Jason's cousins.

Thank you Cindy and Ricky for inviting us to come eat your dinner, we had a great time.

Right on Time!!

No one really expected for my sister to go into labor right on her due date being a first time mom and everything....but we were all wrong. Jovan Jarom was born on Nov. 2nd @ 12:36 am six minutes past his due date.He weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. and was 21.5 inches long, just like his cousin Cadence, and could have had the same birthday, LOL. He is so cute and looks just like his mommy!! It was really a neat experience to be in the room when he was born, really the coolest thing ever.

Quick Post

Hey everyone!! I have had no time to post anything for the last little while...with the move and everything. But we are doing fine. We had so much help moving, it was about an hour to pack up everything and an hour to unpack everything. Our old ward was amazing and I have a pretty good feeling about our new ward! They were so willing to come help Jason and I with moving.

As for me I am feeling pretty good, a little sick here and there, but nothing to serious. My midwife told me that I need to eat more though, and that would help more with the sickness. I have a busy month a head of me. For one I need to still get everything unpacked, we are still living out of boxes and it drives me crazy, I have a baby shower to plan and get ready for, a scrapbook to finish( I have only done three pages), and than its off to Utah to see three new nieces and nephews, and attend the birth of my little sisters baby. I will be up there for about 2-3 weeks. So if I am not posting much it's because I have no time, on top of that I have Miss Cadence who keeps me on my toes all day. I will try to post some pictures of our new place once we get all settled in.

Thanks to everyone who helped us move, you made it so much easier on us.

Well....we are expecting again. Yes that's right...another munchkin on the way. We are so excited!! I went in for an ultrasound and the baby looks great! We are so blessed to have been able to get pregnant so quickly after what happened in May. Bring on bigger and better things.

What a BIG girl!

I decided to start potty training Cadence. Am I crazy???.....probably, she is only 20 months, but I think it's been going pretty good. We've had a lot of accidents, as everyone might have, but within three days she started going in the toilet. She loves wearing her BIG girl underwear too. I am actually glad that we started her now. I am hoping by the time she turns 2 she will be fully potty trained. Crossing fingers!

Families are Forever

We had an amazing weekend going up to Utah for my sister Littia's Sealing. Even though I could not attend inside the Temple, I felt the spirit very strongly. They got sealed in the Manti, Utah temple. It was pretty amazing how it was rainy all day and during their sealing it was sunny and beautiful outside. They are such a cute little family, here take a look:

We had a lot of fun going to the Lake, Shopping, swimming at the pool, sightseeing and just hanging out at home. Thanks for staying with me!! It felt good to have someone actually have a conversation with me for once.
