Olsen love Toy Story Two. At the end of the movie Woody has he legs crossed and Olsen decided to copy him. He is cute that way.

While driving around yesterday, Olsen needed to look cool in his mom's extra sunglasses.

We went to the park the other day and Olsen had a blast. I really should go more often. He is such a social kid and makes friends where ever he goes.

Later we picked up Byron from work and to check out the new shops at one of the resorts. Olsen found the water fountain. Yeah for drinking clorine water. :)

Requested by Amalie

Amalie wanted to see a picture of the necklace I got for Christmas. Byron let me open it a couple days early for the Tihati Christmas dinner on Saturday night. He completely surprised me with it. I told him about that necklace a month and a half ago (when Amalie was in town, we saw it together) and did not expect it at all. He is good that way. :)

Christmas Morning

Christmas really does get more fun once you have kids. To see the joy on Olsen's face when he would open up his presents was worth it all. He got really excited with all the different cars he got. I can only imagine how next year will be.

Chistmas was busy and fun. We had everyone come over for a very yummy breakfast (more like a brunch) at our house this morning. Very different when you are cooking for 12 people..... I think we used every pan in the house, and then some. I found a great recipe from W&C catalog for the best french toast I ever had. Oh yay, it was that good.

Tonight we had our big Christmas dinner at Byron's parents house. A lot of people and a lot of food. Good times.

Merry Christmas everyone

Olsen's new Lightin' McQueen trike

He loves his new Cowboy Woody doll (he opened Buzz next)

Playing cars (what a surprise)

Gabriella's new caterpiller rocker (Daddy is helping her for now)

Just another pretty girl with a flower in her hair.

Here are some more pictures. I need to post pictures more often. I know my mom love to see updated pictures as often as possible. I finally took some by the tree. The second picture is when Olsen came into the house after getting soaked by the sprinkler yesterday. Sweet Gabriella is always smiling. She has to be the happiest baby. Seriously, she loves when people talk to her. She lights up!

Cara - hope you are feeling well. What, just 6 more weeks? I want to see some pictures of you. :)

A sprinkler story

Olsen cracked us up today. He loves to take a drink from the sprinkler. He got a little more than he bargained for. Pretty dang cute. The sprinkler is shooting out like that because it is watering the hill behind the bushes. He is also wearing his PA Harris Electric shirt that his grandma Harris got him for the Christmas parade we were in last weekend.

Christmas is around the corner and I'm getting excited. Just 3 more days. :)

quick post

Okay, 2 kids = very busy mama. Man I feel I can't keep on top of things. Life is great and I am ready for Christmas. The presents are wrapped, the packages are sent and the tree is beautiful. :) Here are some very cute pictures of our very cute children :)

Big boy and cute girl

Now that Olsen can climb out of his crib, we decided it was time to upgrade him to a twin before he hurts himself. I still remember pictures of Stella in almost a body cast when she broke her leg climbing out of her crib when she was two. Olsen loves his new bed and goes "night night" without any problems. He even takes naps without a hitch (I thought we might still have to use the crib for naps, but no, he loves to sleep in his bed). The next picture are of Gabriella just being cute in her new purple outfit from Auntie Monica.

Buyer's Remorse

Potty training

It is potty training days at the Harris house. We started Monday and it is going pretty good. I have Olsen with just a shirt and nothing on his bum. I tried just underwear yesterday, but he just peed in them without thinking. Hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to put underwear on him and he will tell me when he has to go pee pee. Right now I keep asking him and will put him on the potty if it has been awhile. He will also look at me in a very worried look and I know that he has to go pee. We have only had a couple of accidents so far. I reward Olsen will a sweat-tart everytime he uses the potty, but now he will sometimes just go sit on the potty and demand a sweet-tart. The kid is smart :)

Here is Olsen using the potty. I moved into the living room so it will be very handy for him to use.

And here is a cute picture of Gabriella via the mirror

We also have some great shots of when Amalie and Blaine were here, but I want to load them to our website and then send an email out. Hopefully I will be doing that soon.

I cut Olsen's hair today. I think I might cry and Byron is pretty sad too.


AFTER (he looks like he is going to turn in his mission papers)

Aren't my kids the cutiest? Little girl is a pirate of sorts and Olsen is a Fijian warrior, but everyone thought he was Tarzan. He is suppose to be wearing a hook around his neck (he hated it at wouldn't wear it) and a real war club we picked up at the PCC (he was hitting too many things and had to take it away)
Our stake had trunk or treat and it was fun. We were able to walk around and hang out with some friends. Good times.


Here is my favorite picture of Gabriella

Just Pictures

Here are some pictures I took this last week. It was requested to take some more of Gabriella in her bassinet. We attached a mobile and she likes to lay there listen to the music and see the flowers go around.

Yes, that is Olsen with a ponytail. I will be cutting it after baby Gabriella's blessing. I just might cry when I do. It's just hair, it will grow back.
