We woke up and went downstairs this morning and surprise- Santa had left a couple of things for us. He left a note saying that he knew these things wouldn't fit in our car when we come back home from Arizona, so he left a table and chairs and kitchen set for the girls.
We also opened our presents from the Will family to lighten our load of things to take on our trip. Everyone was so kind and far to generous, we appreciate all the wonderful gifts and the girls are excited about their fun toys. We head out Monday as long as we have a bit of cooperation with the weather.

We decorated for Christmas earlier this week. We are leaving for Christmas in Arizona in just a couple of weeks, so we opted for no tree this year. Instead, we made one out of paper and hung a few of our ornaments on it. Caitlin loved bringing all the presents to put under the tree. She loves to look at the presents, and Chris told her which are hers. Today she dragged a bag over to me and said "this is mine, Mommy". And then she opened one of the bags and showed me her new dress.
Ashlee is holding toys a little bit now! And everything gets a nice coat of slobber.

What exactly do I like about staying at home? Reading stories, singing songs, seeing their faces when they wake up from a nap, quiet time during naps, getting them dressed, doing Caitlin's hair, teaching, laughing, going on walks, eating lunch with Caitlin, feeding Ashlee and not pumping, seeing Caitlin's enthusiasim for learning something new and her excitement in helping me do anything, playing with Ashlee and seeing her smile at me, teaching the gospel, helping Caitlin learn right and wrong, hearing her polite manners, cooking, seeing 2 beautiful faces each and every day, playing, running, chasing and being chased, being home when Chris gets home, hearing "I love you Mommy" many times everyday.
I love you Caitlin and Ashlee

Have you ever seen these wind turbines? Well, if not then come to Wyoming, they are all over the place here. And for good reason, it is soooooooooooo windy here. It is windy all over Wyoming, but I have always thought that Rock Springs (and Rawlins) are exceptionally windy. The wind has been blowing unbelievably strong since last night. It is suppose to be 20-30mph with 50mph gusts today and I would say it is at least that. We went to a play group this morning and Caitlin just about got knocked over by the wind twice. I just hope our fence is strong.

Caitlin slept in her bed for the first time last night. She was so excited she wanted to go to bed at 6pm. When she did go to bed she stayed all night and called to us in the morning to come and get her. She also went right to her bed at nap time because she was so excited to take a nap in her "big bed".

I pointed out to her that there was a spider on the top of the hat, which she thought was pretty neat. But then she thought she saw spiders all over the floor and started hitting them with the broom. She cried and wanted me to get one of them, which was just a piece of string. Caitlin has a fear of bugs in the house ever since she saw a huge cockroach in our NY apartment days before we mover, who can blame her really.
A couple pictures of Ashlee. The right picture is my attempt to capture her excitement when she wakes up in the morning and I go in and get her out of bed. Not that great of an attempt but she sure is always so happy and excited to see her Mom in the morning.
