Ames' Christmas 2010

While I was gone Beau left this by the tree. It is a scrapbook of our first Christmas as a couple & of Piper's first Christmas. I did the scrapbook. Beau just left it out by the tree. So sweet!
This year we sang Happy birthday to Jesus & ate birthday cake. We did santa this year but we wanted Piper to know that everything we have comes from Jesus.

Opening Gifts
Piper was so sweet & thankful for all her gifts.
Love my new book! I still look so ruff!
P was so cute. She unwrapped this giftbox & thought this was her present. She was posing with it! HA!

We put pictures inside his new wallet :)
She loved her santa present.
Happy new owner of a easy bake oven.
I love my new canister set.
I really don't know why she did this. She stuck the beef sausage & cheese into the cake.
We had a fun night snacking & enjoying Jesus' birthday.
& His birthday cake. Piper said "maybe Jesus will eat cake with us."
traditional family photo.
Thank you Jesus for such a wonderful Christmas. You are the reason we celebrate!

Christmas 2010

Here are our Christmas' with mom's family & dad's family. I missed 2 of them b/c of being sick.
Here are the one from moms. I can tell you I was feeling aweful. My temp was high & I didn't move from the couch.
P showing us her bow.
Landon was so cute. Everytime he would open a gift he would say "this is just what I wanted!"
Sweetie pies!
Here are pics from my dad's. I felt a little better this night but not so great. This was the first time I ate in 3 days besides a piece of toast.
Brit & Piper. I took this pic b/c of the way Piper is sitting. My cousin Tessa use to sit like this when she was little & it just amazed us. We didn't know how she could do it.
Jamie, Sarah, & Landon opening gifts.
P & her soccer ball!
I am so thankful my Christmas ended up being so good. I was sad to miss out on a lot of family. Being with the rest of my family made it better.

A sick week for us.

Piper & I spent the week in Antlers. We didn't hardly get to visit with anyone. When we got to town my dad was really sick. We spent the first morning with G'ma Faye & the second morning with G'ma & Papa Baker. It was so great visiting with them.
I am SO mean! The kids were up extremely late & I took a picture as they threw a fit!
One night we walked around & looked at the lights in mom's neighborhood.
RJ, MW, Ma, Piper, & Alex.
We walked up to a house where an old man was outside walking & Piper yells "that's my daddy". She got excited. He had gray hair, overalls & a beard. She got so embarrassed!
Where is Michael Wayne??
Where is Piper??
One night Ma & I finished up her Christmas shopping so P & MW stayed with G'ma Sandy. They got to make gingerbread houses while we shopped. :)
This is what my Christmas consisted of. There should be a thermometor in there too. My fever got up to 103.7. I was achy, my chest, throat, & head hurt so bad. I litterally stayed in bed for 3 days. Then I made myself get up. I didn't eat. It was bad. Pretty sure it was the flu. I just slept & slept. Beau said I've never seen you sleep so much. He & mom did a great job taking care of me. I had to sleep in the recliner for 3 nights b/c I had to sleep sitting up. YUCK! Thankful my g'pa called me in a z-pak.
My step dad also got real sick for a day, my step-sister got sick too. Piper had a strep virus we think. It was so sad. She wanted to sleep with me, lay on me, & she didn't want to eat. I was really glad she felt better before Christmas. But then I had to get sick. :( BOO!
