This one was just for fun because she was TOTALLY stuck. Instead of HELPING her, I yelled for Keat to grab the camera!! She was FURIOUS! That's what you get when your bum is big and you get your tiny head stuck!! I truly think she thought she was going to die...look at that face!
Then it was time for the annual "picking of the PERFECT tree" event! After a LOoooooooooNG time of searching, we found it! Here is Seth being wonderful and tying up the tree! It was SO NICE to have the van this year instead of people laughing at us all the way home with a tree hanging over the front and back of our car!!:)
And here are the kids while daddy does the MANLY work...at least they stayed quiet!
The next day we headed over to my parents for family pictures! (I'll post those in a later post). Thanks Riss for volunteering your camera and your skills! While we waited for our photographer to arrive, my dad took the kids around in the Model T! It was Keat and Lilee's first time. Not sure how Lilee enjoyed it, but Keat thought any time spent with Carsten was a blast!
That night my parents watched our munchkins while Seth and I went to his work dinner party in Scottsdale. I was VERY excited about this party. I had been feeling very PREGNANT for a while and decided to treat myself to a new outfit that actually FIT! I was looking good, Seth was looking good, free dinner and dancing, we were stoked! Until we go to the resort. The party was OUTSIDE...by the pool! Had it been 2 days before, it would have been 65-70* outside, but on this particular night, it was FREEZING...I had NO jacket, because, let's be honest, when you have a new outfit, you don't want to cover it with a jacket...duh! I was freeeeeeeeeeezing. Seth didn't even bring a jacket! Luckily for me, one of Seth's co-workers was there and had a sweater and a vest on and a jacket and let me wear his jacket. It was depressing to have a jacket 4 times too big on over my adorable new outfit, but I was SO grateful to not be shaking from the cold anymore!! All in all, it was a fun time! Thanks mom and dad for a night out!
By the time we got the tree, the kids were spent, so we didn't decorate till a few days later...for your viewing pleasure...the placing of the star on the 2008 Becker Family Christmas Tree...brought to you by RUDOLF himself!!(I apologize if anyone is offended by this picture...it was just TOO funny...and it is NO surprise that my kids spend more time than probably usual NAKED!!) Be glad I edited the photo...the original will be a GREAT one to show his future wife one day! Bwahahahahahha!
