Christmas Outfits

See guys, what did I tell you. Westin LOVES his Dad!

I think this is so cute of the two of them. Cousins. Once looks up while the other looks down.

Emily is such a good cousin to Westin, she is always trying to hold him and help him in any way she can.

Matt and Emily's Birthday.

Matt's Birthday was over a month ago. Just a bit late.

Matt is a better Dad then I could ever ask for. As soon as he walks in the door from work he goes straight to Westin. He is always wanting hold him and it has been that way from day 1. Westin loves his Dad and knows how much he loves him. They always have so much fun together.

Here is a video of Matt and Emily celebrating their birthdays. Matt turned 29 and Emily turned 2!

Visiting Santa Claus

The Monday before Christmas we headed over to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa! Westin loved to sit on his lap.

Westin really liked sitting on Aarons shoulders. Everyone was very excited that Aaron was holding Westin. As you can see, Aaron was enjoying his time. Until....

Westin spit up all over his head! Aaron was and still is completely mortified. I'm not sure if he will ever hold him again.

After seeing Santa we headed over to the Temple lights. We were able to see a bunch of people we haven't seen in a while who happened to be there.

As you can see we did a lit of adventures, there are still a few more to come!

Our LONG road trip!

After all the San Diego stuff we headed out to Arizona on Friday December 18. We had everything planned for the drive. Westin eats at certain times so I wanted every stop to work out with his meals, just to make the trip shorter and to make the baby happier. Everything was working out great. We hit a bit of traffic in Riverside (no surprise) We made a stop for gas right when we got to the Arizona border.

About a mile after we got on the freeway we were at a complete stop. We waited for a few minutes and then people started to get out of their cars to see what was going on. I called my Dad right away to see if he could look it up. According to online there was an accident and the road would not be open until 3:45, it was 2:15. I was livid. I couldn't believe it. Everything was going perfectly, just as planned. We still had an hour and a half at least of our drive. I did not want to be trying to entertain a baby on the side of the road.

About 10 minutes after I had talked to my Dad he said the website had updated and we were now looking at 6:45! We couldn't believe it! We were now looking to sit on the freeway for a little over 4 hours.

Of course Matt was just as happy as normal, he is so optimistic! He got Westin out and started on a walk. I was being a baby and waited to stay with the car. Then all of a sudden I had a change of heart. I decided I better go with them and not be stuck there by myself, who knew how long Matt would be gone.

We ended up talking to a lot of people. Everyone wanted to see Westin and they of course fell in love with him. Some people offered us water and one nice guy offered us a soda and some candy.

Once we got back to the car Matt wanted to pull out the jumperoo we had brought. (When we go on road trips my family thinks we bring everything but the kitchen sink. This may or may not be true) So what else would we do with Westin in his jumperoo in the middle of the I-10? A photo shoot of course!

We ended up being able to move around 5 I think so it wasn't as bad as we were thinking. We feel very sad for those who lost loved ones and are very great full to know that we were safe. This is the truck that I'm guessing rolled.

Christmas Pictures

Before we left for Arizona we had a good friend Nick take our family pictures. Nick always gets really into it and enjoys it so much. Thanks Nick for taking some time to help us out!

Just some random things.

Westin has been meaning to thank my sister-in-law for this super cute shirt. As you can tell he loves it!

A while ago we went hiking and to lunch with our friends the Smiths. I'm bummed I didn't get a picture of them. Westin did pretty well until the last 10 minutes of the hike, that's when he screamed!

For about a month the Pobst family headed down to San Diego so Matt could work at a client and not have to do so much driving. Westin and I were so lucky to hang out down there with him! It got a little bit lonely down there in the hotel but I took my sewing machine and my computer.
Westin enjoyed hanging out on the bed while I did my various projects.

Just another photo as a thumb sucker. He doesn't do it as much any more. He usually just chews on it.

This last picture was taken of Westin at 4 months. Its on the Christmas card so I wanted to wait to post it. How cute is he. Seriously.

Black Friday Shopping

My sister Stacy, my sister in law Alicia and I headed out around 11:30 to Arrowhead Mall. We are crazy! We thought we would be the one of a few people. Turned out we were one of like thousands. It was insane! We started otu at the mall, then we headed over to Old Navy which is where the two people in a jacket come in. It was pretty cold at 3 in the morning. We all made out with good deals from Old Navy.

After Old Navy I eaded to Joann's and the other two girls went to Target. I actually met my Mom there and she got a TON of flannel, along with everyone else in the store! That day was pretty hard to recover form the lack of sleep but luckily Matt took Westin for me so I could sleep. By the next day I was back to normal.

It was a really fun time and I know Stacy is going to try to convince us to do it again but I think I'm out!
