Marlee can sing this song really good, but of course she wouldn't sing it while the camera was on. Colten does a great job and has been singing Christmas songs nonstop for the last few weeks. He just went into hysterics seeing himself sing when I showed this to him...too cute!!

Holiday Flurries

It has been the usual busy weeks before Christmas at the Straub house. I've been meaning to put some of these pictures on here for a few weeks, but haven't made the time. Here are a few of the flurry of activities we have done the last few weeks: visiting Santa at The Bass Pro Shop (which Colten now calls the mall with the live animals), seeing the lights at the Temple with our friends the Sanchez family, dipping chocolates to give to some neighbors, making gingerbread houses with Mana, Shannon, and Rylee, a luncheon with the girls from work at the Cheesecake factory, and of course lots of shoppping and wrapping presents. It has been hectic and crazy, but it is still a great time of year to celebrate with friends and family. Here are a few pictures of the Holiday activities!!

Miracle Marlee Turns Two

In addition to being a great Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends, our little Marlee turned 2 on Friday. She got to celebrate twice; once on Thanksgiving with my family and then on Friday with Stacy's family. She loved every minute of it, especially getting cupcakes twice. We are so grateful for her and her special spirit. She really is a miracle for just surviving her first few months of life. She saw her Cardiologist this month and is still doing fantastic. We are grateful to our Heavenly Father and all of our family and friends for your faith, love, prayers, and support in her behalf.

Since this is serving as my scrapbook, this is a slideshow of all my favorite pictures of Marlee, from birth to this weekend. Sorry if it's too long!
