Sorry, the camera was misplaced once again. This time for much of the Christmas break. These are the photos we did manage to get, and we'll try to post pictures from other family's cameras when we get the chance.
Reese playing with the moving, singing snowmen at Grandma Faber's house.

Reese found the phone in Grandma and Grandpa Faber's room.

Reese playing with cousins at Grandma and Grandpa Heath's house.

Reese not waking up from a nap after not falling asleep very easily. Notice the ring on her arm. I don't think the toy was meant for that.

Reese trying to blog since mom has been out of commission.
We stayed in Utah Valley for the week of Christmas and New Years. Here are some of the highlights:
Christmas Eve: Reese and cousins act out the Christmas story at Grandma and Grandpa Heath's house. Reese loves being a wise man because she gets to wear a Burger King crown and hold the bad of gold.
Christmas Day: We open gifts at the Heath's. We try to show Reese how to tear wrapping paper, but she takes one try and hands it to the nearest adult and asks them to finish by using the ASL for "please" I figure it's just as well. I don't really want her learning it's okay to rip all sorts of paper until she's old enough to know the difference between the mail and the presents.
Will gets shoes. Anna gets another wig. Will likes dry feet and Anna likes not having to do her hair. Reese gets Duplo blocks. They are currently scattered in every single room of our apartment.
Christmas Day: Anna runs to her parent's house in the middle of the day to be there for her brother Darren's Christmas phone call from Canada. She brings the camera back with her to take pictures at the Heath's and that's the last we remember of the camera until the end of the holidays.
All Week: Reese makes messes everywhere and charms everyone. She loves having so much space.
All Week: we all get to play games with family. We learn a new game called "beananza" where players grow bean fields to win. Will has a nightmare the next morning where he believes that he can't wake up until he has enough of the right beans. Anna thought he was just extra tired.
New Years: We rang in the new years at 8:00 with the Heaths (and cousins) then return to the Faber's to put Reese to bed and continue playing games with Family until it's so late we're all tired and grumpy.
Going Home: We've finished packing up the car to go home with I realize there is one pocked of a bag we have not checked. Sure enough, there's the camera.
Happy Holidays!
