This was the 2nd time he stepped on his own- the 1st time he took 3 steps. This is just a tiny step but we are still proud :)!

That's pretty much what we've been up to. We have both of our family Christmas parties this afternoon, so we're looking forward to those & we'll be heading up to Show Low on Wednesday for Christmas! I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy this time with your families & remember all we have to be grateful for!!

We had such a good time at our Ugly Sweater Christmas party- I'm wanting to make it an annual tradition (hence, the title)! Anthon was a great sport in working the hideous Santa head sweat suit for all to enjoy (even though the pants were a size or 2 too small)!! I thought my sweater was hideous til Anthon's came along & put mine to shame! Roman looked like an elf in the gay jumpsuit I found for him... Oh, what my boys go through to make me happy! Thanks to everyone who came & made the night so fun ! We had yummy snacks, a fun white elephant gift exchange, & lots of ugly sweaters to feast our eyes upon! Scroll down to see tons of pictures of all the festivities & ulginess!!

Our baby is growing up ever so quickly... I can't believe he's almost a year! Every mother says it goes by way too fast, but I didn't realize just how fast it goes. Roman is a delight! He jabbers all the time (& still has that raspy "smokers" voice we love)! He says "Dada, Dad" almost constantly & "Momma" when he's sad or tired. He has added some new words like "Baba", "Dog", "Jesus", "Yeah", & "Car", but it's predominately babbling different forms of the word "Daddy" (He LOVES Anthon). I've started to notice all the nicknames we call him- Just to name a few: Romey, Rome, Romester, Buddy, Brother, Bro-man, Sucker, & Skinny. He is a busy boy these days- not walking independently yet, but cruises along with assistance from the furniture/cupboards, his walker or bike, & our hands. He's learned to take the lids off of almost every container he's NOT suppose to get into & still finds joy in all aspects of the bathroom! In spite of all the mischief, he is the soft spot on our hearts, the greatest joy in our life, & the thing we are MOST grateful for!
Oh, & he's not a fan of Santa. When we were in TX we took all the kids to the mall to get pictures on Santa's lap- screamed bloody murder the entire time! This picture is from our ward Christmas party. As you can see, he's still leery of the man in the big red suit!

Sydney making a turkey (a Gills family tradition)
We had a lot of fun with the bubbles... then my camera died, so that's all we have pictures of

Anthon took me to see New Moon again on Saturday night & it got me thinking. Yes, Jacob's body was admirable and Edward was... Edward, but I couldn't help but think about how happy I am with MY guy! There was a preview before the movie that had a quote I can't get out of my head- "The greatest love story ever told, is your own"- SO TRUE! I love our story & our life together! So, today (tomorrow & forever) I'm thankful for Anthon! He brings joy to my life that no one else can & I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world!
