Christmas 2010

Goodness..I have so much to be grateful for! A loving Heavenly Father who blessed me with the best family ever. A husband that loves me so much! He is my best friend I couldn't ask for a better man. A holiday to celebrate the birth of our brother our advocate our friend, who was born into this life for the sole purpose of saving us!!
Every Christmas Eve it is tradition that we decorate sugar cookies!! we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. The kids love it!
We love to just be home and hang out..the kids make up beds in the living room to catch Santa and leave out notes, cookies and nagly (egg nog and sprite mixed together).

Christmas morning..we actually got the kids to sleep until 7 am! whoo hoo!We eat sticky buns every Christmas morning!! yum yum! :) Blayre, Ash and Dad were sick on Christmas Day! :( PaPa had surgery on his knee the day before Christmas eve as well!

Jensen got his 17 and hunting clothes he wanted SO BAD!Anz got her disco ball she wanted..
We had a very low key Christmas just the way we LOVE it!

It is no secret I LOVE PICTURES I always have. When we found this amazing photographer years ago I was so thrilled because he has such amazing taste and is so talented.
He came all the way up here from Ogden, Uah to take our pictures this fall. I just wanted to share these of my little one.

Ward Christmas party 2010

This year our ward did a breakfast Christmas party..other than it being early for a Saturday it was really nice.
The Primary did the traditional manger scene and sang Christmas songs. It was so sweet seeing all the little kids up there waving to their parents and trying to sing louder than the kid next to them! :)
Jensen was asked to be a wise man, and Anz was one of the angels. I tried to get some good pictures from where I was sitting but Jensen was hidden behind all the little cows :)

SANTA was just about to make his BIG appearance!! Anz could hardly wait!

Blayre just marched right up there and sat on his lap! She wasn't scared one bit! It was so adorable!
Jensen thought he was a little TOO big to sit on Santa's lap, but I wanted a picture, so I asked him to! Who knows he may get what he wants this year for Christmas ;)

Real Meaning of Christmas

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Thanksgiving went far too fast this year! I had intentions of having an amazing dinner with even better company! Bryce, Aubrey & Jayda came up to spend it with us this was SO SO fun to have them but the few days passed far too quickly, we enjoy having them so much it always seems to go by so fast! We really did have a lot of fun eating, sledding, and playing with Jayda! We didn't even get out to the Black Friday Sales this year. :(
But all in all we did have a wonderful holiday! It is always so much funner with company to share it with.
Blayre has not stopped asking when Jayda is coming back since they left!
I have so very much to be grateful for..My family. Loving husband who adores me and is such an amazing father. Great friends. The gospel. Health. I am so blessed :)

I did not even get out my camera for Thanksgiving~ I cannot believe it! This is not like me either.. I am not quite sure what I was thinking.. :( I am regretting not having those memories documented!

Anz & Blayre got a newly remodeled room this week as well. Winter is about the only time of year we can get projects done around the house, with Ben's busy work schedule!
I had tons of fun creating it with Anz's suggestions! Everyone who knows us knows we absolutely love glitter so we were able to put some BLING in the room as well..that was fun!
She knew exactly what she wanted!!
"A DIVA ROOM WITH A DISCO BALL FOR DANCE PARTIES!!" .. haha!! (Santa is going to bring the disco ball)
So..the room goes right along with the personality of our little diva! She loves it, so I guess we did ok!
Thank you Andrea for picking up the quilt for me I appreciated it so much! :)
