My New Nephew!

Jaxen Ivan Hancock was born early this morning Jan 19th at 12:22 am! He weighs 8lb 13 oz and is 22 1/2 inches long. My sister Megan and baby are both doing good after a long day yesterday. I am so excited that he is finally here and wish that I could be there to hold him. I will post a picture as soon as I can. Congrats Megan and Ivan!

Snow and Smiles!

On Monday neither of our cars would start (stinky AZ batteries!) so the girls and I decided to play in the snow. The girls loved it and had so much fun even though it was really cold. We olnly played for about 2o mins but it was great and the girls loved to eat the snow!

Mayli making a snow angel, she was so happy to be making one but her eyes are closed because it was snowing on her!

Tori is not quite sure what to do with this snow on her hands but after a while she just decided to lick it off!

Many of you might not know but Mayli had two big cavities in her front two teeth and they were getting into the root so on Tuesday she got them fixed. They put her under to do it and although I was very nervous about this it was really amazing. Once she woke up she was fine and only complained about pain once. She loves her new SMILE!

My silly Tori loves to put things on her head. One morning she kept tring to get this towel to stay on and would get really mad when it wouldn't stay on. So finally I put a clip in the back and she was so happy she wore it around for like an hour. What a NUT!

Sunday bests!

The girls were so excited to go back to our ward on Sunday and get to see their teachers again, luckily Mayli's teacher moved up with her so she has the same one and she just loves her, she is Mayli's Preschool teacher too!

Sweet Mayli with her cute little smile and much loved baby!

My mom got Tori this cute little dress with matching bows for her birthday and she looks so sweet!

Cute Jewlery website!
Hey everyone, just FYI when I lived in AZ there was a girl in my ward who makes the cutest jewlery and even showed me how to make the earrings one time! She has a website with her stuff on it and I thought that I would post it so that you could all check it out. Plus if you post about it on your blog you get a pair of earrings free! I am totally game! Thanks Kayci!

Christmas in AZ!

We had such a wonderful time in AZ with both of our families. Christmas is always such a fun time and our girls are at really fun ages for all the Christmas fun. I even got to teach Mayli a little more about Jesus and how Christmas is really about him. This meant a lot to me and I love getting to learn and grow myself as I share things with her. The girls and I got to go to AZ early and spend some time with my mom and Catherine, we had so much fun! I also got to go up to Show Low for Megan's baby shower and spend the night with my sisters, we stayed up way too late and laughed way too hard, thanks girls! Christmas Eve with the Nikolaus fam was lots of fun, and so was Christmas morning with the Rawlings fam, it is always so good to see everyone. The girls had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of fun things. They loved getting to see their grammies and papas and although we had a wonderful time it is nice to be back home.

We went to Target with Grammie Lori one morning and they had these huge Christmas ornaments on the grass. My girls loved them and we just had to take a picture!

Christmas Eve in their new pjs and with their new bedtime books.

Tori's favorite quote of the season "Oh my goodness" with her hands on her face like this. It was so cute to see her open her presents and be so excited.

Sweet Mayli was so happy Christmas morning, she loved the stuffed animals that Santa brought her and said "Santa is so smart, thanks Santa".

We went to the temple lights in AZ and the girls loved them. It is always really fun to go and not as cold as Salt Lake!
