We loved going to the Festival of Trees. Our favorite trees were a tree decorated entirely with candy (of course that was our favorite!) and the Dr. Suess themed tree.

We also enjoyed the lights at Temple Square. However, we went on the coldest night of the year as evidence by Elle's face in her Eskimo coat and the women's gloves that D is wearing because even he was that cold.

Both D and I agree that Christmas morning was our favorite day of 2009. Opening presents with my family and Elle was (excuse the cheesiness) kind of magical. Seeing her eyes open up when she opened up the package fake food that my brother gave her was worth every penny.
There is nothing like celebrating Christmas with children, it's almost like experiencing it for the first time all over again.

Dress up shoes

I sure wish they made some of Elle's shoes in my size. But they look cuter on her anyway.
Today while playing dress up I decided to take some pictures of her little shoes to put in her baby album. I have a picture of the shoes I wore on my wedding day framed and hanging in my closet, who knows maybe one of these pictures will hang in her closet some day.
