Pizza party and a mini hair cut

Hey folks. Sorry I've neglected the blog lately, nothing too exciting has been going on at the DeHaas casa recently.

We made the most delicious home made pizza the other night. Honestly I think it was the best pizza I'v ever had...sounds dramatic I know but really it was so good. We made a tasty Hawaiian with some ham and juicy pineapple and then we made a BBQ chicken, tomato and spinach one...mmmmm...that one was my favorite.

Landon strategically placing the ham.

Care for some ham? (Notice the wet spot on my shirt, this is what happens when I do the dishes.)

Link investigates EVERYTHING with his little thumb.
I think he approves. (Notice the dirty thumb)

The final product.

My little guy is 11 months! Where did the time go? He is getting so big. I love rocking him to sleep and I know he'll be too big soon so I soak it up every chance I get. Link's vocabulary consists of oh what, uh oh, ma ma, da da, and no no and some other crazy ones.

Hi mom.
Landon's sister is a hair dresser and she gave Link he's first mini hair cut today. And by mini I mean like a few little baby hairs that were growing faster then the others...not quite to the mullet status but getting there.

Getting ready for the big moment.

He loved the fish cape.

Thanks Aunt Shelby!

A very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

2009 here we come! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year! I'm a little late posting this, luckily no longer being a procrastinator is one of my new years goals I'll be working on this year. :) Christmas was so great this year. We started off the festivities by heading to my moms house for Christmas Eve. The night started by lighting Finish candles in my moms front yard. My grandpa, who served two LDS missions in Finland, passed away a few years ago and every year for Christmas the hospice lady, who is now a close friend of the family, comes with her family and does Finish candles in honor of my grandpa. Since grandma was spending Christmas with us they came to my moms house. The candles are made out of snow balls and then they put a candle in the middle. It was so neat! Such a wonderful way to start Christmas. Then we headed inside for some cookies and hot cider my Grandma fixed up.

Link checking out the candles.

After that we opened some presents, relaxed for a bit then headed home. After we put Link to bed Landon and I decided we would open our presents that we had for each other, which was fun to do with just the two of us. Then I sat and watched the snow for a while. I loved that it snowed so much on Christmas Eve, (and I loved that we didn't have to travel very far Christmas day) it was like the cherry on top.

Christmas day was filled with visiting family, gift giving and was excellent. Doesn't get better then family, food and presents!

Link with his Christmas PJ's on. I didn't get a picture of it but it says "merry christmas" on his bum.
Landon's dad brought out the presents in a big red bag with this sweet hat on.

I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating the birth of our Savior. We wish you all the best for the new year!
