Christmas 2009

Christmas was so fun this year! It was so different this year actually having a little boy who somewhat understood what was going on. Canyon was so excited for Christmas this year!

This is Canyon in his new transformer jammies on Christmas Eve.

This is Savanna at 7:20 this morning. When she woke up she found that Santa had left some chocolate cookie crumbs on the plate and of course she helped herself to them.

When I was growing up my mom always had us arrange our presents and then she would take a picture of us sitting next to them. So here is Canyon and his presents. :)

Here is Savanna and her presents. She didn't open any of them herself. She didn't really care to. She was too interested in brothers presents that were already opened so Canyon opened hers for her.

This is Canyon at Grandma Susan's. He got Bolt - and he knew what it was - even though he hasn't seen the movie or the case since last year when William was in town.

Savanna and Daddy. Cute. :)

We had a GREAT Christmas! Canyon was so excited and that of course made me excited. I didn't have any problem at all waking up at 7:15 to watch him open his presents. It was great! Savanna had kind of a rough day. She hurt herself at the Facers in the morning and she has a huge scratch on the side or her face. It was so sad and it looks horrible. Next Christmas will definitley be better for her! :)

We ended the day by sending both kids to my moms for a slumber party... I warned her that Savanna wakes up every three hours to eat but she thinks just cause she's with Grandma she will be a good girl and sleep through the night. We will see!! Thanks mom! I could definitley use the rest.

Can't wait until next Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone!!

Last Night...

Last night, my precious little 8 month old slept through the night.

Mommy & Daddy really needed that.

This was a first time event for Savanna and it only took 8 months and 8 days to accomplish. Hopefully it will become a habit. :)

Potty Trained!!!

So I know that Canyon will probaby die someday when he gets older and find this picture but... I'm posting it anyway! :)
Last Sunday we started REALLY working with Canyon on going on the potty and I'm proud to say that this week he did so good and only had one accident after his nap. We are sooooo proud of him and sooooo grateful we don't have to buy diapers for 2 kids anymore! Yay!

Halloween & Cornbelly's - better late than never!

Ok, so I know I'm a little late with this post but that's ok! I couldn't find the cord to connect my camera to the computer for a couple weeks and Savanna found it for me in my shoe closet. Thanks baby! :)
This year after changing his mind MANY times, Canyon finally decided to be a pirate for Halloween and he was so cute! He ran around the last couple weeks yelling "AAAARRRGHH MATEYS!!" Then Grandpa taught him to say "Shiver me timbers" and everyone almost died laughing whenever he yelled it at him. What a funny boy I have. :)
Savanna was a chicken for Halloween and that was deciced a long long time ago. For those of you who don't know, Savanna goes by chicken at our house. Its kind of a long story but thanks to her brother Canyon... and her dad. She has been known as "Chicken Baby" since she was in my tummy. We figured it was only fitting for her to be a chicken on her first Halloween. And look how cute she was!

The Saturday before Halloween Uncle Bryce and I took the kids to Cornbelly's. Canyon had a blast and Savanna was just happy to be out as usual. Canyon was of course terrified of the giant lizard haunted house thing but who isn't? He loved the bouncy thing and the corn maze.

Savanna being her chubby cheerful self! :)

Canyon's best smile!

Uncle Bryce and Savanna.

Byce & Canyon bouncing.

My favorite - Canyon body slamming some random little kid and I got it on camera. :)

Canyon playing at the ducky races.

Happy Birthday Scotters!!

Yesterday was Scott's birthday and he turned 25! Wow, its crazy how old that sounds! :) And I am going to be 25 in March. We didn't really do anything too exciting but on Friday night we are planning on going to dinner at the new Texas Roadhouse that just opened in Lehi. We had Scott's favorite cake, german chocolate, and ice cream at my mom's in the evening and Scott blew out his candles with Canyons help.
We love Scott so so much and he sacrifies SOOOOO much for his family. This year Scott sold his beloved shotgun and at one point he even had 3 jobs to help us get through tough times. He is such a hard worker and we love him sooooo much. Thanks for being so wonderful and for being such a great dad to Canyon & Savanna. Happy birthday and we love you!

FHE Pumpkin Carving

For Family Night on Monday we went to KFC, then we went and visited Grandpa Facer. After that, we stopped at Macey's and got a pumpkin to carve. Canyon wanted a little one but they didn't have many little ones so we ended up with a medium sized one.

Canyon in front of the GIANT pumpkin at Macey's.

Canyon & Daddy carving the pumpkin.

Daddy being such a good sport... :)

Savanna just hangin out and enjoying her baba. :)

Toy Story 3D

So I haven't taken Canyon to a movie since he was really little and was a little worried to take him to one but decided I'd give it a shot. Yesterday we decided to go to Toy Story 3D because Canyon loves that movie and I thought it would be fun to see it in 3D. We went with Shelly & Melanie and Canyon did so good!! He was so funny and I was laughing at him most of the time. He would have sudden outbursts of excitement all the time and I was almost crying I was laughing so hard. One time he yelled "nice shot Zurg!" and it was hillarious. He didn't wear his glasses for very long though because they were so big and they kept falling off. He liked it though and he decided that he wants to be Buzz Lightyear for Halloween. We'll see if I can pull that one off! Here's a picture of him all set for the movie to begin. :)

What's going on in my world...

- Work... all the time.
- Savanna is almost crawling. She's so cute :)
- Canyon is 2 1/2. Yes, he's definitley testing my patience each and every day.
- Scott - duck hunt starts Saturday. Enough said.
- Potty training. some days are hopeful and some days just aren't.
- Savanna is still awake all night. She doesn't sleep during the day either. I think she's a robot.
- Scott just got called as a supervisor in the Teachers Quorum in our new ward. :)
- Savanna just had her 6 month apt and she weighs 18.5 lbs. (90th percentile)
- We moved Savanna and Canyon into the same room yesterday.
- Canyon's name isn't Canyon anymore. His name is "the brave little toaster". Sometimes he prefers to go by "Diego Canyon Facer Diego".

I lead such an exciting life!! :)

Back in business!!

For those of you who don't know, my camera broke 2 months ago and I've been cameraless ever since! Well, besides my cell phone anyway. I'm happy to say that I bought a new camera on ebay, and got a killer deal, and it got here yesterday and now I'm back in business! Yay!! Here are a few random pics that I took yesterday to celebrate!

Savanna's First Cupcake!

So usually I don't introduce them to cupcakes until their first birthday but Savanna thinks she is an exception to the rule apparently! She was sitting on the counter "helping me" frost cupcakes today and I took my eyes off of her for 2 seconds and she had snatched up a mini cupcake and was chowing away! Now a normal mothers reaction would have probably been to take the cupcake away... which I did... but not before grabbing my phone and getting this pic!
Looks like she's going to take after her Cupcake loving mommy!

Timpanogos Storytelling Festival 2009

My dad has done all the sign work for the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival for the last 15 years and so we've always gotten free tickets everywhere to go. It has turned into a family tradition for us and we love it! This year it was nice and cool up the canyon where they hold the day festivities and it was perfect weather! Here are some pics. Can't wait til next year!

Growing Up

Savanna learned how to sit up by herself about a week ago and she is doing so good!

I gave Savanna rice cereal a few weeks ago and she didn't really like it or know what to do with it when I put it in her mouth. I tried again today and she did so good! She really liked it this time, maybe because I added bananas. She was so messy and cute! :)

Scott & Canyon's Crawdad Trip

Canyon got to go Crawdadding with daddy at Strawberry on Friday night and he had so much fun! He was so brave and even held them! They got home really late on Friday and he was so tired but he loved it so it was all worth it!
