Family Pictures 2010

Tara took these pictures of us last week. She managed to capture the beautiful sunlight, which made the fall leaves look like gold. She is talented, that one.

Christmas '10

Our boys' first ever picture with Santa. We braved the lines at the mall one Friday morning. Owen flipped out at the last minute and Austin, for once in his life, wasn't smiling! I had to sit with Owen because he didn't want within 5 feet of Santa.

The Saturday before Christmas we had our annual Jones/Winters family Christmas party. It was a blast. We got to see cousins Serra and Sammi!

Here's Serra cuddling Austin
Nana giving Austin his bottle later that night
Cutie patootie cousin Michael
Ryan talking with Uncle Howard
Owen was soo happy running around with his cousins and playing with his new toys!

Chris and Trev
Papa and Baby Lexie
Before church the next day I got this adorable picture of the boys in their Christmas Sunday best
On Christmas Eve we joined the Daukas' and Jones' for another Christmas celebration. We weren't going to see them on Christmas Day so we wanted to spend some time together!

Tara and Lexie. She looked so cute in her Christmas dress and stockings! Lexie, not Tara.
Austy got brave and attempted to climb the stairs. He didn't get far.
Owen opening presents. He tried to open every present within his sight, even if it wasn't his!
Ryan and Austy
Austin was crying right before we left, so Tara and Taylor were singing to him. It worked, he calmed down!
Christmas morning at home. It was such to have a morning with just our little family

Around lunchtime we headed to Gilbert to be with my side of the family

Here's Drew entertaining. He's getting so big!
Owen and Bella playing. I'm so glad they are close in age!
Jesse and his girlfriend Emily
Aaaaand more present - Round 4!

Austin and cousin Eli - they're only 3 month apart!

Christmas Decorating

The weekend after Thanksgiving, we put on some Christmas music and decorated our tree. This is the first year that Owen was old enough to participate, and while you probably can't tell by these pictures, he loved it!

Every day he looks at the tree and the ornaments and says "wow COOL niiiice!" and "prewwy yights" (pretty lights)

The day we decorated, though, he had just come down with a really bad cold and double ear infection, which we found out later. Doesn't he look absolutely miserable in these pictures?

Figuring out where to put the ornament

Daddy helping

Austin looked on. He was his usual happy self.
Oh my stars, look at that face.

Computer Fun

Owen can't get enough of this video. Any time I'm on the computer he asks for "NA NA Elmo". I have to admit, it makes me laugh too.

This is his other favorite video, which he calls "1 2 3 4"

And sometimes around bedtime we'll play this for him
