Merry Christmas Eve!

We spent Christmas Eve at my moms house, which inevitably led to the annual manger play. My mom split the role of Mary between me and my sister as to not hurt anyone's feelings. Lincoln was baby Jesus. Disaster struck when the donkey came into play. Little did we know that Linc is terrified of masks. Blood curtailing screams from baby Jesus. It was pretty exciting. Anyway here are some random pictures of recent festivities.
Lincoln learning to be soft with Bosco
Look at all this snow!!!!

Will went to St. George for a short business trip, so Lincoln and I had a date. 
We stopped by to see the tabernacle.

We rode the train at the mall. Lincoln loved every minute of it.
We are in the process of a kitchen makeover.

We had a ward party last week and SANTA CAME! Lincoln was no where near as excited as I was.

On a side note, here are pictures from Will's 10 year high school reunion.
This is how I stayed entertained while Will walked around talking to people I didn't know. That's right we had a contest to see who could launch the most olives into the glass. Since I don't take the two guys I was playing with as blog readers, I'm going to go ahead and tell you that I won.

bye bye binkie

We did it! Lincoln has been binkie free for the last week. Wahoo! I was nervous but he did pretty good. It's bitter sweet. I still remember how much joy I felt the first time Lincoln had a binkie! (No more ET tube) And now it's gone, my baby isn't a baby anymore.
He is also pretty much done nursing. Which is also bitter sweet. With how much I struggled with it you would think I would be jumping for joy the day I was done. But it has turned out to be such a special, bonding experience. It's good to finally have my body back to myself. It's nice to wear whatever I want to, and eat what ever I want to, or as little as I want to. It's nice to leave him with a sitter and not have to worry about how he will eat.
It's crazy how fast Lincoln is growing, time flies.

We spent Thanksgiving in California! I was loving the warm weather, so nice. We had an amazing dinner, went to the beach, and basked in the sun. Friday we went to Will's 10 year reunion. Then Saturday we went to Magic Mountain. We had a blast!

 We stayed at Will's brothers amazing house. This is the view from the backyard.

 Someday this picture will haunt them.

 Lincoln was so tired! He fell asleep in Will's arms walking to the care.
