First ride on tax and first Jazz game for the kiddos

We took the kids to the Jazz vs. Clippers game and thought it would be a great time for them to experience trax for the first time.  They thought it was the coolest thing ever.  In fact, I think they liked tax more than they did the basketball game.  We took a quick stroll through the Temple Square lights and then headed down to the game.  It was absolutely beautiful weather!  We only made it to half time of the game because Bill got the flu and it was getting worse.  Boo!



We hosted thanksgiving dinner at our home this year. My grandparents and uncle Tony came. It was the perfect day. Bill prepared everything (with the exception of the jello that I made and a few things my grandparents made). It was divine! Everything tasted amazing and the company was delightful. It's been such great weather that we even got a walk to the park in.

Tis' the Season for Our annual visit with Santa


Olivia's Preschool Class Picture 2014-2015

The letter-writing begins

Casey and Debra gave us a bunch of their boy's baseball stuff for Will - helmets and bags, etc.  Well, Will and Olivia wouldn't stop fighting over them and so they quickly went away into hiding.  Will wrote me this note today. 
The kid seriously cracks me up.  Bill says he will make an amazing attorney or salesman one day!


Setting up Christmas

We setup Christmas a little early this year...I think we were all a little eager to get the Christmas spirit into our new house and also with baby coming on December 19th we thought it would give us more time to enjoy it.  It looks magical!  We couldn't be happier to spending the holidays in our new home!


Olivia LOVES to pick out her own outfits and they usually involve something of mine, whether it's a piece of jewelry or a pair of my shoes or whatever she can get her hands on.  She also LOVES to help  me clean. So this is the best of both worlds for her!



Olivia had her first little cavity.  She was such a trooper having it fixed and the dentist did a great job taking care of her and ensuring her comfort during the whole process.  I was definitely more nervous than she was!  Nevertheless, hoping it doesn't happen again!




Lucy's 2nd Birthday

I can't believe that little Lucy is already two.  It seems like just the other day that we were bringing her home from the hospital.  She is such a bright spot in our lives.  She has a contagious loving personality and is usually happy unless she's buckled into her car seat in the car.  Her birthday came at a crazy hectic time this year and so we decided to keep it low-key with a family party of cake and ice cream.  A few Lucy-isms...she loves to play and hide and seek, talk on her play phone, still loves her pinky and blanket, loves chocolate milk, wishes she could go to preschool and dance class like her big sister, is a chatterbox, enjoys lip syncing and singing and dancing to music, is very adamant about doing everything her siblings are doing, and loves to say "cheese" for the camera and then say, "I see!"  Love this sweetheart.  Happy birthday Lucy Jane!


Love this trio
