Christmas in Utah

We got a foot of snow in the course of two days. I was nervous about Maggie liking the snow-but she loved it. Her favorite was sledding. The faster the better. She lasted 1 1/2 hours out in the now until she face planted in the snow. She could have gone longer, but it was nap time.

Maggie of course loves her cousins. Tomorrow is the Matthews's family Christmas Party-she will be in heaven with all the cousins.

Can't miss the annual nativity play. I played the angel, Tom and Larena were Mary and Joseph, Mike was a wise man, and Mark was the shepherd. Maggie was already in bed when we started. Maybe next year.

I was surprise that Maggie has had a bit of stranger anxiety (a first for her), but she has eventually warmed up to Grandma. Now they are best of buds.

Santa Came to Town

We went to a Christmas party last night with our med school friends. There was a table full of desserts, singing around the piano, and a visit from a special someone. One of the girls (2.5 yrs old) was so frightened of Santa that she peed her pants (sad to say, but it was a high light of the night). Maggie loved Santa. Since there were so many people around, it was hard to get her to look at the camera. 

This is Maggie's most famous face-she does it to be funny.

No tricking her. She kept pulling on the beard.

Maggie is our little social bug. She loves people. At one point, one of the guys was reading a story to the group. Maggie was sitting near him and thought that everyone was looking at her. She began to "sing" us a song while everyone else was silent. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy this little girl.

Maggie's Christmas Dress

It must be a Price thing to pull off last minute sewing projects (I remember my mom staying up making Christmas Eve pajamas for me, and Annie making a late run to Walmart for fabric so the girls could have matching skirts for church). I have been wanting to make a Christmas dress for Maggie, but I don't like most Christmas dresses. I finally found a picture of a dress on pinterest that I liked this week and started making it Saturday to be ready for today's Christmas program. I think it turned out super cute. There are a few things that I need to fix, but overall, not bad for making up my own pattern. I am sort of known in my family for just winging it when it comes to projects. Many don't turn out very good. But every once in a while, I get a winner.
