We wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of our loved ones a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! We hope that you were able to see your loved ones and remember the true meaning of Christmas! We had a good year. The biggest change was our move to Arizona. We're really starting to like it here, thanks to some new friends!!
At church this past month we've been hearing a lot about seeing the Christ in Christmas and it has really helped us keep our perspective of what Christmas is really all about. We pray that the Lord is with all of you during this holiday season and always.
All our love,
Roberto, Elizabeth and Oliver

Last week our neighborhood was supposed to have a Christmas party for the little kids. Well, it was canceled at the last minute. ( we found out by a note on the door of the house it was supposed to be at) Anyway, I tried so hard to get a good picture of Oliver with his little santa hat on... I did not have any luck... here are two of the best shots!
Also a couple of cute pics of Oliver at the library! We love going to the library... and the one we go to has a lot of fun things for the little kids to do!!
And lastly just a cute little video of Oliver playing with a snowman!
Oliver is getting a little better at church. I took my friend Heather's advice and when we take him out into the hall we don't let him down. Then when we're in the Chapel he will happily sit and read books or eat snacks. It's a process but we're getting better and this past Sunday I didn't want to run out of church crying by the end! YAY!!!

Oliver is so smart! He still does new things everyday and I love being able to see him grow and learn. Yesterday, he was drinking some milk and was done. I said "okay Oliver you're all done now" and he said raised his hands up as if he were going to ask a question, cocked his head to the side and said " All Gone?" It was so cute! I wish I would have had my camera so you could all see how adorable his expression was! It was just the cutest thing ever! I love this little boy!

Today Oliver was following Berto's aunt around the kitchen begging for bites of a tostada! It was so funny... but the funniest part was when she chipped off a little piece of tostada and went to hand it to Oliver and he snatched the bigger part of the tostada and started chowing down! It was so funny! All I got was this picture of his prize but I was laughing so hard at my little begger boy!

I realized today that my previous post about Oliver's tantrums during church was based on my complete exhaustion after three hours of trying to keep him quiet! I failed to mention that he does have a few shining moments during church. Whenever we sing a hymn he stops whatever he's doing and "sings" with us. It's the cutest thing and I wish I could get it on video!! Anyway, just a little after thought!
