Happy Birthday Jesus

My favorite tradition each Christmas is the birthday party we throw for Jesus. The last two Christmas' we have been with all the Utah relatives staying at my Mom's. Having our big meal and party to celebrate the Savior's birth all planned out for us.
This year we weren't able to go up to Utah so I got to plan my own birthday celebration. It was awesome. I prepared lots of middle eastern/ Greek food, made a birthday cake and invited over some friends. Our house was full of people just like I was at home with my family. Seriously it made my whole Christmas.
After we ate lots of yummy food we took a moment to talk about the greatest gift the savior has given us. We also wrote down our present this year for the savior. It was such a wonderful evening.

Sariah is loving the fact that her brother is able to play with her all week. She might yell and scream at times but he is her favorite playmate!
Justin has been so patient with his little sister. When she is nice he loves it. When she is cranky he is normal and gets frustrated.
I call Justin bud or buddy often. Today for the first time Sariah keeps saying Justin buddy as she plays with him.
I love watching them play happily together, it makes all the fighting they do seem nonexistent. I love Christmas break!!!!

Santa at the Mall?

Went to the mall today with this little cutie to get her picture taken with Santa. We stood in line and waited our turn to find out that they weren't going to let me take a picture with my camera. I had to buy their cheapest one photo package at $17 if I wanted to get a picture with him. So disappointed in the mall but life will go on.
Little Miss is getting so big and has sooo much personality. Love it! She keeps surprising me with her vocabulary and her ability to do anything she puts her mind to.
