New Years EVE Fun!

We spent the day in American Fork Canyon at Tibble Fork Reservoir with family and friends, having a snow day again. There is no way around it here.

The view from the van on the ride there.

This little girl LOVES the snow (she didn't get it from her mother).

Happy Sage, keeping warm in the van.

There are some special people who made/created Sage some fabulous "stuff " ...

Aunt Shanda scrap booked an entire book for Sage, zero to twelve months. I'll I have to do is stick in the pictures... DREAMY!

Gramma sewed Sage three blankets and a nursing cover... BEAUTIFUL!

Nana sewed Sage two twirly skirts... LOVELY!

Aunt Sarah designed three bracelets-three different sizes for Sage... DAZZLING!

Faith Bast designed TWO birth announcements (because I couldn't decide which one I LOVED more)... DARLING!

Thank you everyone for your gifted talents!

Elefun has been a big hit at our house this Christmas. I don't know what's more entertaining, Chandler's laugh or Kate's encouragement to catch the butterflies!

Want to play?

It's Christmas!

Christmas morning 2009 started at seven o'clock sharp at the Curtis house. We woke the kids up by saying, "Santa came to our house, it's time to get up!"
We only put the top half of our tree up this year since "wild man" is more active than ever.

The kids were surprised about the bikes Santa brought them!

Sage enjoyed her one and only present, the activity gym.

Chandler loved Kate's princess helmet more than anything. Every picture is with him wearing it.

Kate loved all her books, activities and games she received.

We had a wonderful, white Christmas this year. The kids are at a fun age where it makes an entertaining morning. The rest of the day we played games, some took naps and then we played games some more. Thank you to our loved ones for the great gifts. We are very grateful for all of you and this Christmas season.
Merry Christmas!

Christmas EVE!

Our Christmas Eve was filled with snow! Steve and the kids built an AWESOME snowman and then spent hours sledding down a snow hill.

My favorite quote of the day, "Mom, I can't stop eating the snow!"

Mr. Snowman

Hold on Chan!

Steve made his famous Chicken Parmesan for dinner... yummy.

The kids opened one present after tubbies, pajamas.

We left some delicious treats for Santa and his reindeer. Then went off to bed after reading about the birth of our Savior in the scriptures.

Good Night and Merry Christmas!

Three Months

Miss Sage turned three months old on Christmas Eve.
She has gained almost four pounds and has grown five inches since birth.
She is our favorite present this Christmas.

Merry First Christmas Sage Juliet!
