Treehouse Musuem

Our good friends, Amanda and Neil, called us up and asked if we wanted to meet them at the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. They have a little boy named Carter who is just a little less than a year older then Lilly. They have a lot of fun together. The museum was so much fun that we decided to buy a membership! Lilly was mad when we left! She just wanted to stay and play all day!!! I took a TON of pictures! Here are a "few" from our day! I'll let the pictures talk for themselves!

New Year's Day

New Year's Day we went bowling with Trevor's family. Lilly absolutely LOVES bowling! Her and Connor had a great time bowling together.
Here's Grandpa Foust with his granddaughters:

Connor was busy running around, but made a quick stop to pose for a picture!

After bowling we picked up some pizzas and headed to our house to eat and hang out. Lilly drove us home! Or maybe she was playing while we were waiting for the pizzas!!!

After the festivities with the Fousts we headed to my parents house for some Dutch Olie bolie and Etta Soup (split pea soup). My dad made the soup and Olie bolie. Olie bolie translates to "ball of oil". They are sort of like scones with raisins in them that you dip in powdered sugar. They are a New Year tradition and are so yummy! My dad worked hard to make us food, then had to leave to work the Jazz game. So we hung out with my sister and mom and played some Canasta.

Here is Lilly doing some magic tricks:

We had a a great time welcoming in the new year! Hopefully 2011 will be a great year for everyone! I'm still behind on a few posts, hopefully I will be caught up soon!

New Year's Eve

I'm sure you're relieved to see that I have moved on from Christmas to New Year's!!! Because we had such a busy, but fun, Christmas, I didn't make any big plans for New Year's. Our good friends, Eric and Kayla called us New Year's Eve and asked if we wanted to come over for a little party. So we got ready and headed over there! It was a lot of fun. The 4 kids played together while the adults ate yummy snacks and played Cranium (guys vs. girls, girls won!!!) Kayla and I ended up doing a puzzle together and at midnight we drank some "bubbly" to welcome in the new year! Happy 2011!
Here is Lilly all dolled up!

Here we are as a family
Trevor wouldn't wear a cute 2011 headband, so it's just me and Lilly!

The Willden clan

The Eborn clan

Lilly loved playing on this little car and became very possessive of it!!!

We tried to get a picture of the 4 kids!!! What a challenge! We ended up just laughing the entire time. Even the dog got in on the action, but I didn't get a good picture of that!

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve celebration! Happy 2011, may it be great for all of you!!!

Aunt Sherri's

Yes, this is another Christmas post. And yes, I do realize it has been almost a month since Christmas!!! The day after Christmas we went to my Aunt Sherri's house to celebrate Christmas with my cousins. We had a fabulous dinner, did a gift exchange, and just enjoyed each others company!
My cousin Devin just LOVES Lilly and she just LOVES him! We used to play with this McDonald's stand when we were little. Now here is Lilly playing with it! She is ordering her meal from Devin.

Now she is taking the orders:
I didn't really get a lot of pictures at this party. My sister got a bunch, so I will have to get them from her! (Don't worry, I won't blog about anymore Christmas!) This was the one family picture we got around Christmas time! I always forget to have someone take our picture!

Merry Christmas everyone for the last time!!!

Christmas Day

My parents and sister decided they would come to our house Christmas morning to watch Lilly open her presents. This year I made Lilly a table tent (that will be a whole other post later on!) While we waited for my family to come, we let Lilly explore her tent.

Here she is with her presents with her cute Santa jammies and her cute hat!

My sister and Grandma gave Lilly this super cute pink chair. I have been wanting to get one of these for a while, so I think I was more excited than Lilly!!!

My sister gave Lilly some play makeup before she opened any of her other presents. Lilly just wanted to put the lipstick on over and over and over! My sister thought it went on clear, but it went on Barbie doll pink!!! We had to tuck it in her pants so she could open her presents. She would open one, put on lipstick, open another, put on lipstick, and on and on.

Her she is with pink all over. It's a little hard to see in this picture, but it was the best one I had!

Lilly got a new baby doll and she instantly knew what to do with her! She even gave her pink lipstick kisses!

She is such a good mommy! She even pushed the baby around in her stroller and covered her face with a washcloth!
Playing with her new train!

Opening a present:
Lilly loved opening her presents. She is still at the age where she just wants to play with the one she opened. We eventually got them all opened! We then made a yummy breakfast (actually Trevor did!) After breakfast my family left and we headed to Trevor's parents' house. When we got there things were a little quiet. The only people there were Trevor's dad and younger brother. Come to find out Christmas Eve Trevor's Grandpa was rushed to the hospital. To make a long story short, his heart gave out and he had to have a pacemaker put in! Due to a series of certain events, and tender mercies from the Lord, Grandpa Noble is doing great, dare I say better then he has been in years!!! We are grateful everything worked out for the better and he is still with us today!
Here is Lilly opening her presents from Grandma and Grandpa Foust:

She is so excited to use her drill to help Daddy build things in the garage!

Loving Uncle Landon:
After Trevor's parents, we headed to my parents to open our presents there. Lilly got this fun new kitchen! I love it because it is not too big, but it still has all the fun features of a kitchen.
As you can see by the pile of wrapping paper, we were all spoiled rotten!!!

After we opened presents and got spoiled from my parents, my dad made a SUPER yummy pasta dish! We devoured that, then played some Rockband!!!

Of course there are several more pictures, I just narrowed them down! We had a wonderful Christmas spent with our families. Now that we have a child, Christmas has that magical feeling again!!! I hope you all had a Merry Magical Christmas, too!
