Merry Christmas from the Suttons!

Here are our Christmas cards from this year!  I will be posting all of the holiday festivities very soon.  Hope you all had a great holiday as we did!  I very much enjoyed our lazy break... I knitted, read, drank wine, and sat around a lot.  Needless to say, I had a blast!  Taylor hunted some, and we cooked lots of yummy food.  Stella was great with opening all the gifts, but got a little crabby at the end of the weekend.  I guess a lot of time off isn't always good for everyone!   We are ready for life as usual... although, new year's eve IS coming up soon.... more celebrating!  Yeah!  I can't wait!

Stella's Christmas Program!

On Thursday Stella had her Christmas program at school.  She sang "Away in a Manger", "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "Jingle Bells".  After each song, the kiddos cheered very loudly for themselves... and Stella was the loudest of all!  We weren't surprised!!  She was such a big girl and was not scared at all.  We were so proud!

Cruz Edward Claxton!

On December 8, 2009, Cruz Edward Claxton was born to some of our best friends, Jerrick and Taylor Claxton. He was 6 lbs, 13 oz, and he has the most gorgeous skin that I have ever seen! I went and saw him the day that he was born in the hospital and he was the sweetest little thing. They had a great delivery and they are already at home with baby. We went over there last night and took them dinner... another excuse to hold Cruz, really! Stella got to meet him, and she was a little jealous. She wanted me to hold HER instead! After that, she was more into redecorating their tree than looking at the new baby! We are so happy for the new family and can't wait to watch him grow up!
