Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Eve...

For Christmas Eve we all got P.J's! And the Girls got matching bath robes.

The Boys showing off their sweet P.J's

As for Nixon he got a Special Christmas Eve Present... Watch and find out what it was:)

We are very excited for our next little one to come and join our Family! My due date is June 20th. So Nix and the Babe will be 14 months apart! Me and my sister are 19 months apart and I loved having a sister that close to me. We wanted to have our first two close so that Nix could have a buddy and then we will do a little gap before we have anymore. We find out what we are having Feb 3rd!! I can't wait!

Christmas Day...
Christmas Morning Nixon slept in until almost 10! a Christmas miracle! So while he was sleeping we ate a yummy Christmas breakfast!

We got lots of fun things for Christmas! I surprised Evan with a Midi key board that he can hook up to the computer and record music with. He was very excited! He had been wanting one for a while. I got a cute dress and belt from Ev and a watch and jewelry and money to this weekends Dillards sale from Evan's parents:)! Nix got lots of clothes, some building blocks, books, toys and a little bike, which he loves! We had a very fun Christmas and we are so blessed to have such a wonderful family to spend it with:)

We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!!

Eight months

Baby Boy is now 8 months!
  • He crawls everywhere.
  • Pull himself up on to everything.
  • He mimics Ev and I with noises we make like; fake coughing, clicking our tongue and making the elephant sound. My favorite is the fake cough! ha
  • When he's sad he says Mama:) Because he wants me.
  • He loves being tickled by his Daddy.
  • He likes watching cartoons in the morning.
  • He takes two naps a day sometimes up to 3 hours! (I think he likes his sleep like his mama;))

Its Santa!!

Last weekend we went to the Festival of Trees and Nix got to sit on Santa's lap! When I was little I was always scared of him and would cry! But Nix was very brave and just sat there and would look up at him ha, it was so cute! Nixon as been a very good boy this year! So I think he deserves some fun toys Santa:)

Little Artist at work!

Yesterday Nix and I were feeling a little crafty so we decided to paint!! Painting is one is one of my hobbies so I thought it would be fun to let Nix try it out:) Hey your never too young to paint! I still remember painting with chocolate pudding when I was young. That was the best! Because then you could eat the paint while you painted. I think Nix was a natural at painting and did some pretty good master pieces! I thought it would be fun to frame them and hang them in his room.

The Artist at work...

I Love little Nixon's personality! he's hilarious! Whenever I feed him he likes to make silly faces and have me laugh at him. It's so cute! I think he's going to be quite an entertainer and like to make people laugh.

When we went to St. George about a month ago, our uncle Gordy made this mold of Nixon's hand and then I painted it. It represents, "hold to the rod" He's a Dentist so he used the molding that they use to mold your teeth! ha. I love it! It will be fun to have when he's older.

Happy Holidays

We had a great Thanksgiving! This year we celebrated it with Evan's family. It was a lot of fun! We ate yummy food and then played apples to apple, pictionary, mafia, signs and stick in a bucket. It was a full day of fun!! It was also my Mother-in-law and my sisters birthday. So everyone help celebrate their birthdays by eating lots of good food! Nixon ate some mash potatoes, jello and a roll. His favorite was the jello of course. He has a sweet tooth like me!

Mom I can't find my cheerio! haha

Nixon helped me decorate for christmas! It's my favorite holiday! It was quite a job so he was pretty tired by the time we were done:)

7 months and still cute as ever!

My Dad came up this weekend and took us to a Jazz game. It was really fun! I had never been to a game before, there was a lot of people there. Whenever they made a basket everyone would cheer and it got really loud! So loud it scared Nix a few times so we got some T.P and stuck in his ears and then after that he fell asleep ha. Thanks for taking us Daddy! We love you.


So Mr. Nixon is now 7 months old!! He is so much fun! Everyday is a blast hanging out with my little guy:) He is very entertaining.

Nixon at 7 months
Hi my name is Nixon James and I am now 7 months old! My Mommy and Daddy tell me everyday how cute I am and how much they love me. I can now get around very well and when I want something I go for it! I especially like finding little things on the floor and sticking them in my mouth! (My Mommy hates when I do this). I love to play in the bath with my toys and splash around and try to swim for them. I love laughing! I like to laugh at things when they fall, Especially people! ha. I am very observant and love to make friends with everyone! I think I charm them with my cute smile:)) I am defiantly a people watcher. I think I get that from my Daddy. I am a very smart boy and catch onto things very quickly! I take 2-3 naps a day and sleep really well through the night (when my teeth aren't bothering me). I love to play in my saucer and bounce around. I enjoy car rides and for the most part they put me to sleep. Well thats about it! Thanks for reading:)

Love, Nixon

Love him:)

This is my favorite time of year! I love the holiday season, It puts me in such a good mood! I love the hot chocolate the Thanksgiving dinner, getting together with family, christmas music, putting up the tree and all the fun decorations! I just love it!

Nixon is getting so big and changing everyday. He's so much fun and such a happy baby! He laughs at everything! I love his little laugh!

Baby Boy got his first two teeth!

He started doing this new thing when he is done and wants to get out of his highchair. He puts in his chin and make a grunting noise hahaha it cracks me up everytime!

We sold our other car so now we just have one car and Evan takes it to work with him so I'm pretty much car-less. So I find fun things to do around the house to help keep me entertained.
I found these chairs at the D.I for 7 bucks! I had fun re- finishing them.

St. George

Last weekend we took a trip to good ol' St. George. It was a fun weekend! We went to Ev's mission companions wedding and Belle's baby shower. While we we're down there we got to see a lot of our friends and family. I miss all of them so much! Nixon got to see 4 of his great Grandparents! They we're all very excited to see him!

Saturday night we went out to Applebee's then bowling! Pretty sure I got the lowest score.

Baby boy is getting so big!!! He he gets up on his knees now and then pushes up on his tip toes ha he's so funny! I got a video of him saying Da-da and Hi!

Halloween Fun!

We did lots of fun things to celebrate Halloween!

Me and My friend Marissa took our babes to Gardener Village. It was so fun! They have it decorated so cute for Halloween. While we were there we took these pictures of our little munchkins. Everyone that walked by would stop and watch and say, "oh my gosh that is the cutest thing ever! are they triplets??" The next time someone asked us that, I'm going to play along and say they all belong to you Maris! ha

Grandpa Stowers has been growing this pumpkin in his garden all summer for Nix. It turned out to be a cute little pumpkin! Thanks Grampa Stowers!

On Sunday we went over to Ev's parents and ate a yummy dinner and then carved some pumpkins! The Green pumpkin was also grown in Grandpa Stowers garden for little Dean! Grandma Stowers carved it for him. She carved holes all over it and then put gummy warms coming out of the holes. I think they all turned out really cute!

My sister came up from St. George to hang out with us:) It was fun! I love my Sissy. Our friend Chaunie took us out to eat at Olive Garden. Nix LOVED her! He kept pulling on her neck! ha. Belle is having a little girl January 7th! She's going to name her Haiven. She's getting such a cute little belly! Nix can't wait until he can meet his little cousin!

While she was here, we did some fun sewing projects. I made Nix a pumpkin onesie and Belle made Haiven some cute hair bows!

Happy Halloween!

Nix was so funny with the bowl of candy. He would pull the candy out of the bowl and then set it on the ground next to him. This entertained him for about 10 mins! haha.

All in all I think Nix had a fun first Halloween!! Next year will be fun when we can take him out Trick-or-Treating!
