One last post for 2008

As this year draws to an end I think there is one last milestone that Leilani has reached that should be mentioned. She is now sitting up and loving it. Of course with the sitting up comes a lot of falling over. It is cute to watch.  We took a few pictures tonight. This really has been a wonderful year for our family. We really have a lot to be grateful for. Thank you to everyone that helped make this year the greatest year of my life to date.

Christmas was great!!

This has been a great Christmas. 

Christmas Eve

On Christmas eve we got together with the Peterson side of the family and really had a fun evening. Each family did a little thing to help us get a little more festive. The kids sang and danced and really put on a great show for all of us. Here are a few highlights from the night.

All the kids were lined up joyfully to hear Grandpop tell them the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas."

Chase and Savannah did an amazing rendition of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Thanks guys. It was awesome!!

Tyler, Kyle, Kory, and Trey did a great job with Popcorn Popping. Too cute. Thanks guys!!

Once there was a snowman was performed my Chloe and Christian. Super cute. Thanks. Chloe is one heck of a booty shaker. 
In the sun they melted small-small-small!!

Mia and Emma did a little dance that they have been learning in there hip hop dance class. Good job girls. Keep on hiphoppin'.

These are possibly the two scariest pirates that I have ever seen in my life. These kids are too much fun. 

Savannah stopped for a moment to wipe the drool from Leilani's chin with her bib. I think that Savannah is ready to babysit.  


Christmas was great. Leilani did not sleep well the night before. I like to think she was too excited about Santa coming but my guess is it was something else. At about 7 we woke up and started opening presents. Leilani was a great sport. She helped unwrap her gifts. 

Leilani and I hanging out Christmas morning. Lizeth gave me this great Lakers blanket. I got to cover up with it while I watched the Lakers beat up on the celtics for Christmas. What a great day!!

We spent the rest of the day with the Hernandez half of the family. We had a great time playing games, hanging out, and having a great turkey dinner with them. I really have some great inlaws.
Leilani looked too cute in her little Christmas outfit. 

This was how Leilani's first Christmas ended. It will be a Christmas that I will never forget. I have been blessed with a great wife and child. I really could not ask for anything else this Christmas.

Still Growing!!

Our little girl is getting a lot bigger and funny. She is getting a really fun personality. 

We are trying to teach her while she is young that the Lakers Rock!!

This will be Leilani's first Christmas. She loves to look at the decorations. 
Savy is awesome with Leilani. I love to watch them play together. 

Leilani can now make the noises she hears dad make all the time.

Leilani Meets Santa!!

Leilani got to meet Santa tonight. He visited here at the apartment complex that we are in. Lizeth and I had a bet on how she would like him. Lizeth won. Leilani burst into tears even before making contact with Santa's knee. She would not stop crying. We had rush home to try to calm her down. We are hoping that this will not put her on the naughty list this year. Santa was a great sport about it and we are really greatful for it.
Thanks Santa!! Hopefully next year will work out a little better.

Fun long weekend

So Leilani can roll over now. Well she can on her left side. It was so exciting to see her do that. Now I can't leave her alone. I can't believe she is growing so fast. We were so excited to have a fun long weekend. Our weekend stared on Wednesday. Wednesday we just stayed home. We enjoyed having daddy home home with us. Thanksgiving was so much fun. We spent time with Ryan's family and my family. We came home that night and Ryan stared feeling sick. He got that 24 hour bug. Ryan was planing to go shopping on black Friday but he had to stay home. I felt so bad for him. He was feeling a lot better on Saturday. We decided to go on a date. We dropped off Leilani with my mom and went to the movies. We saw Four Christmases. I liked it. It was pretty funny. After the movie we went to go eat at Subway. After dinner we went and picked up Leilani and went home. Ryan surprised me with some pretty red roses. What a way to end our date night. Thanks Ry for being a good hubby. It was sad to see our long weekend end but we enjoyed having Ryan home with us. Thanks Ry for a fun weekend.

Here is Leilani rolling over. 

Funny faces from our princess.
She loves sitting in the Bumbo Chair.

Roses From Ryan.
