Our life since Christmas

It has been a hectic Christmas season.
-Finishing up school semester (btw, I got straight A's! In my Anthropology class, I recieved the highest grade on the final! A perfect score! Tooting my own horn here, TOOT TOOT!)
-Getting nursery ready for Baby. Didn't realize how much stuff you actually need!
We love everything IKEA for the baby room!

-Progressively getting bigger
At Nate's grandparents house with Nate's cousin and her babies, aunts, mother and grandma

Sunday before Christmas

-Nate switched to a new branch that he really enjoys
-Baking all the time. For Christmas presents for everyone, I made red velvet truffles, English toffee, and sugar cookies, so I was in the kitchen alot

-Christmas day!

Gah! Pardon the look... it was 6 in the morning and I had slept in a sleeping bag on the floor!
Testing out the towel and washcloth puppet the baby got for Christmas

-Emma came to visit
We got our nails done
At the nail place
At the snow on Mt. Lemmon

-We flew back to San Francisco together and my moms friends had a baby shower for me. We had crepes and fondue and played some games. He got more clothes than he'll ever be able to wear!
My friend Kelsey
Our good friend Lisa
Mom, Emma, Emily, Lauren
Yes, it was a Christmas themed shower.. ;)

-My good friend Nadine flew back out to Tucson with me after the trip to California

We went out to dinner at this hip burger bar called Zinburger. 
Nate was watching ESPN on the T.V

All in all it's been a really fun but busy holiday season and hopefully we will be better about posting now!

Wow, you have been busy! I'm glad things are working out for you though. And yay for straight A's!! That's my goal this semester. I think I just might be able to do it! Only one class looks like it might give me trouble, but I found the tutor today and she's a girl I already know so that makes it way easier!!

I'm basically SO dang excited for you, but I miss you like crazy and I'm sad that I can't be around for all the fun baby stuff. I heart your crib and the washcloths on Nate's head! So I can't wait to see Gabe and you and Nate and I'm pretty much excited that you are such a cute pregnant lady!
