I thought I better sit down and do this before December is too far gone. We had an awesome busy December. Among a myriad of other things we had my birthday. Zach spoiled me all day and threw me a surprise party with our family. What a sweetheart.
We also celebrated our 5th anniversary. I remember when we were married for like 3 months and 5 years seemed so far away- it has hardly been any time at all! We celebrated by leaving the girls with my mom and dad and spending the night at the Grand America. We had breakfast at The Little America- so yummy. Zach met Santa there. It was a nice little get away.
We also went to the Winter Princess Festival at the Provo Towne Centre. May acted terrified the entire time but afterwards talked about it like it was the best thing ever. She was most excited to see the princesses she had seen in the summer so that was cute that she remembered them and wanted to say hi.

We haven't had a ton of snow. The first snow we had we shoveled it all into a pile and built a snowman and a snow dog. Maylie was SO concerned about them it was so cute. She made him a scarf out of leaves so he wouldn't get cold and she had to make him snow food so he wouldn't get hungry. Every morning she would run and peak out the window and see if he was still there. I was a little worried about what would happen when it melted but she just said, "Oh the snowman melted." And started singing "Once there was a snowman" and that was it. She did have a melt down (ha melt down) when a snow storm hit after Christmas and she thought we could put our Christmas stuff back up. She was absolutely devastated when we told her snow didn't necessarily mean Christmas.

We had a wonderfully relaxing Christmas. We told all of our family that we weren't going anywhere this Christmas so we could just enjoy it. We definitely did. We opened presents, went to a nice sacrament meeting then we came home and chilled and the best present ever- Mama got a nap. Then my family came over to our house and we had a nice Christmas dinner.

Maylie had to change into her soccer shirt before she would open presents because Zach was wearing his. Too funny.

This is Camille surrounded by presents and she is playing with a little shred of wrapping paper instead. She did eventually move onto the bows.
My mom got the girls these matching outfits and I just had to share...aren't they adorable?
Probably the best part of the month was Camille got her helmet off on the 29th! Hurray! Any mom on top of things would have tons of pictures of her without it but for some reason all I have is one of her with a hat on. Anyway we are loving having it off. I'm not really sure what to do with it now though, we'll have to get a glass case or something to display it in.
Camille also hit her 9 month mark in December. She is our feel good girl. She has a smile that can just melt any problem away. She gives lots of snuggles and hugs. She loves music. She already has this little rocking dance move. It's too funny. If she is being fussy about going to sleep she will calm right down if you start singing to her. She LOVES her food. She out eats Maylie at just about every meal. And I'm not talking like a pound to ounce ratio she seriously will eat more than Maylie.
