Christmas 2008!

We had a great Christmas this year! It was really exciting because Kate and May were so excited this year for really the first time and it was Madilyn's first Christmas. We stayed here in Utah with Mike's family and we had a great time. Christmas Eve we had a big dinner and then we did the nativity.

Katelyn was an angel, Mayli was a dove, and Madilyn was a lamb. They were so cute! Mayli really made sure she played her part well. She would randomly stand up and start flapping her "wings". It was so cute.

It was so cute. We had a wonderful time! Here is a picture of everyone from The Wrights who were in the nativity. And then one of the whole nativity.

We got to sleep in until 7:45am when Katelyn woke up and was trying to sneek downstairs. Luckily I caught her. :)

Madilyn was so excited and loved the toys that had lights. She wasn't too interested in opening the presents but did enjoy them once they were opened.

Mayli is so funny when she opens presents. She slowly rips off the paper and has to get off every single piece before she can be excited about or look at what it is. She is so funny! She had a great time this morning!
Katelyn loves to rip open her presents! And is so excited to see what is inside. This year she was so excited and she go this awesome art set from Papa Nuggie and Grandma Leta. She was so EXCITED!
It was a perfect Christmas. We woke up and there was a light snow outside. It was beautiful! In the afternoon it stopped and it was time to play out in the snow! Mayli loved to be thrown in the snow and Uncle Matt loved to throw her in the snow. They had a great time!The girls got to make a snowman with Uncle Matt and Aunt Amy! They had a such a great time! There was so much fun snow.

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! We are so grateful for our Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ. We are thankful for the bounteous blessings we are given. This year Mike's parents stake had the opportunity to help provide Christmas to families, some of who didn't even have beds to sleep in and were living in an old elementary school that had been turned into apartments. They were so grateful for the small amount of gifts they were given. One mother whose husband had left her and her 6 children was so grateful to have Christmas for her children. Her 2 girls sleep on a twin bed together, she sleeps on the small loveseat they have, and the 4 boys sleep on the floor. May we all be grateful for all our blessings...our warm houses, our beds, food on our table, family, and great friends. Our Father in Heaven gives us so much and He gave us the greatest gift His son. Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you to Heidi! She helped me figure out how to change my settings so people can comment on my blog. Thanks Heidi you rock! Now if anyone can help me figure out why my dates aren't posting with my published posts. I have it in my setting to post it but for some reason as you can see it says:
Posted by: Deedles

I don't know what the issue is if anyone can help let me know. Well I thought I'd post some pictures of little Mayli! Today was one of those days! Thank you to Krista for your made me happy (you must have been inspired). Mayli has been crazy lately by getting into everything and trying to find the naughtiest thing to do. So this evening I was making dinner and Mayli comes in and has lipstick all over her face and arms and well pretty much whole body! She is crazy! I guess I just have to laugh.

Exciting things in 2008

Well since the year is almost over and I just started this blog I thought I'd give a (quick as I can) overview of 2008. It's been a very exciting year and since I didn't get my Christmas cards out again (surprise) this works!
Well the first exciting thing was definately the crazy snow we had here in UT! It was nuts...but exactly what we needed. This is a picture of Mike's parents house. They had so much snow!

This is the ABOVE ground trampoline! The snow was as high as the trampoline!
Katelyn had her 1st cavities taken care of in February of this year. They had to put her under to put in the fillings. She did well and only had a few battle scars.

Next exciting thing was in February Mike's brother Mark came home from his mission!

Then at the end of February my little brother Caleb hit his year mark on his mission!

At the begining of March we got a new kitchen table! Yipee! Except while we were waiting for the new table to be delievered Katelyn was running in the kitchen and she ran into the back door hinge and cut open her head. So we had to go to the doctor and she had to get stitches...not a fun experience!
The next day I went into labor with Madilyn. At 8:06 pm on March 6, 2008 Madilyn Faye Wright was born. She was 6 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long. It took us forever to name her. She didn't have a name for 2 days.

Then later in March we had Maddie's blessing.
It was a beautiful day. And wonderful most of our family was able to be here on this special day.

Then little Evie was born on April 3rd. Evie is my sister's baby. She was so little compared to Maddie (1 month difference)

Then I finally got to walk for graduating from UVU. It was a great day and Mike took care of all 3 kids by himself.

At the end of May we got to go to Montana to see my brother Sam graduate. It was so fun to go home. Then summer came and we did lots of fun things. One super fun day was the day me and the kids went to the Thanksgiving Point gardens with Krista, her kids, and her mom. It was so beautiful and we had such a wonderful time.

Then it was Katelyn's birthday and she turned 4. She had her 1st birthday party with friends and was so excited.
Molly was born in July. Molly is my sister Celeste's little girl. In August we headed up to Montana to go to Molly's baby blessing and help pack up Celeste and Matt cuz they were moving to Texas. It was fun to be with the family.

Then late in August Katelyn started pre-school. She loves every minute of it and is so excited to go to school!
Then in October my brother Sam left on his mission.
Mayli had her birthday on December 5th. She turned 3. She is getting so old and so very cute.

The girls had their 1st dance recital in December and they were so very cute. Of course there were many more exciting things that went on but I can't post everything. It's been a good year and i can't believe that it is almost over.
