Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was so nice to spend time with both families. It was also fun to spoil Spencer and see him experience his first Christmas. We sure love him!

Reading with Uncle Joel

Thanks Mom for such a cute outfit

Christmas Day with Grandma Bingham

Oooh look at all my presents!

Day after Christmas... eating lunch with Dad. I love this face: "Dad, I want some..."

If you get near his mouth with food, he opens like a baby bird.

I'm sorry, but I think he's the most adorable baby ever.

I've started "couponing" in the last month or so. I never really bothered to do it while we were in New York, mostly because there was just one grocery store near us (and it wasn't that great) and a Walmart. I would clip the occasional coupon, but that was about it. About a month or so ago, a friend on Facebook posted this blog that she follows that steers you towards some great deals and I started reading it religiously. From that blog, I found 2 more to follow. Now I read all 3 every day. And they always have fantastic deals.

So now that I've started couponing, I must say, it's pretty fun. I love getting stuff for free. Thanks to my mom, I've learned to shop sales and recognize a good price. I cringe when I have to buy something at full value (thanks a lot, Mom!) Couple that upbringing with some savvy couponing and I've been able to get some awesome deals on stuff.

So since I use this blog (partly) as a journal, I'm going to occasionally post some of my more awesome finds. I know this will bore some people, and I certainly won't post everything I buy, but I want to be able to look back and see some of the more tremendous deals. So without further ado, here's the first one.

All this stuff for only $6 (thanks Smiths!)

And $10 at Target (the Tabasco sauce is never on sale).

Oh and in case anyone is interested, the 3 blogs I read are:

November & December

Here's some pictures from November and half of December.

(The first 4 should be at the end... but I don't want to spend the time to fix it...)

Christmas lights at Temple Square.

Dad combed my hair...

We went for a fall hike up Farmington canyon. Weather was gorgeous and it was beautiful.

Like father, like son.

First snow.

His hair is getting really long and it's so adorable.

New snowsuit.

He loves Cory.

So cute.

It was too cold for Turkey Bowl, so we all played dodgeball instead. Very fun and much warmer!

Watching the dodgeball.

First Thanksgiving dinner.

Playing with cousin Fisher.

Helping with laundry.

Impressive he managed to back in there.

He loves french fries. Loves them. (Don't worry; it was homemade).

Yoga baby... downward facing dog...

Helping with the Christmas decorations.
