Sunday Naps

Love Sunday naps with our Connor boy!

Saturday, December 29, 2012


Connor was able to meet his Great Grandmother Gigi during Christmas Eve.  Connor loved her (especially since she was feeding him...ha).  Grandma Gray is such a beautiful lady inside and out!

Christmas Eve Breakfast

We were able to meet up on Christmas Eve with some of my girlfriends from Highschool at Cracker Barrell.  It was great seeing them.  Emily came with her hubby Brannick and 2 girls.  Christi came by herself (Daniel was out Christmas shopping-lol). Daniel (Christi's husband) is a crack up. Christi had some exciting news to share(not sure if I'm allowed to share)!  It was a lot of fun catching up.  We will have to do it again soon.  :)

Christmas in Woodruff

 We did Christmas in 2 parts this year.  We went to Woodruff first and then Tucson.  Before we made our way up to Woodruff, we stopped by the Snowfake Temple.  It is really pretty.  It was decorated a little bit for Christmas.
 First stop...Uncle Gary and Dana.  Connor was way fussy because he had been in the car for 3 hours and wanted to eat. Random side note-they had a little teacup dog that was adorable (John may let me get a little dog someday!).
 Next stop Woodruff.  Here are some pics of Connor with Grandpa Bowler.  Connor was quite the snuggle bug with Grandpa (it must be a Grandpa thing).
 Here is Connor just chillin in his elf outfit.  He is so adorable!
 Here is Ronny (Johns brother) and John.
 Going to Woodruff was a lot of fun and a great way to start our Christmas celebration!

Connor Meets Santa

 This is my Determined face.  I am determined to get a picture with Santa and Connor!
We took Connor to go and see Santa last night at Bass Pro Shop.  Apparently you need a fast pass to stand in line...we were advised to come back tomorrow (which was today).  I almost blew a fuse.  Do you know how hard it is to get Connor ready and not fussy for a picture?!?!?!?  I also bought a piece of fudge (out of frustration) and the cashier charged me $12 for a $3 piece of fudge.  Of course I didn't figure it out until I was checking my online banking (this is an entire different story).  Anyway, we came back today with our "fast pass" and were able to take a pic with Santa.  We went to Bass Pro shop because they let you take your own pictures.
Here is the actual fast pass.  It crossed my mind to duplicate it for next year. Totally kidding...kind of.  :)
Connor was so adorable.  He slept the entire time and snuggled right up to Santa.Here is the pic that John took.  They also have them online to purchase (the ones they took).  Although I was annoyed with Bass Pro Shop, it ended up working out.  Everything always works out!

UOP Christmas Party

 Connor and I went to my team UOP Christmas Party at Four Peaks in Tempe.  It was delish!  Below is Connor just chillin while we ate.  I'm amazed he slept for most of the lunch.
 Here is Bri my manager.  She is awesome! She welcomed Connor to his his first restaurant experience.  She also taught me a new highchair trick.
 Here are the lovely Bri and Allison waiting for their food...
 Here is Daisy with her Ugly Christmas was pretty much homemade and awesome!
 Here are Sean, Adri, and Jessica waiting for their food...
 Bri and Connor...
 Trina and Michelle...they are such sweet ladies!
 Group Pic...
 Jessica with Connor...She had a salad for lunch...way to be healthy JH!
 Carlos and Connor...every little kid loves him.  It's too funny.  :)  I sit next to him at work.
 Manny and Connor...Manny has 4 kids at home...or is it 5 (lol inside joke)?
 Adri and Connor... She has an adorable son named Liam.  I'm pretty sure that Connor and Liam will be buddies!
 Allison and Connor...he loved her!
 Adri, Connor and myself...
It was a fun lunch and great seeing everyone. Thanks UOPX for a fun afternoon!

Connor Meets the Boys

We finally introduced Connor to the "boys" aka Charles and Jack.  It went fairly well for the most part.  Connor fell asleep. I'm out numbered by boys!!!

Baby Pics/Christmas Lights

 We are trying to do newborn pics with Connor.  We were getting things set up and here are some funny candids of him (these aren't the finished product).  We call the above pic "Say What?"  It is hard to get a baby to cooperate (especially a naked baby...we ended up putting a diaper back on him to set things up).  We started out fine, and then it went crazy.  I'll post the better pictures when they are ready.  :)

 We went to the Christmas lights last night with my parents.  It was a lot of fun!  Connor did pretty well for the most part.  He was a little fussy when we first arrived and ended up being held for most of the night while we were there.

 We ran into the mutual kids from our ward.  It was fun seeing them.  It was Jel's Birthday (the cute gal with the curly hair).  What a fun way to celebrate your Birthday at the Temple lights!
