Happy New Year!

We had a super fun New Year's Eve party with the Grand kids and our kids. I had a bag for the kids to choose an activity for various times throughout the evening. Here are some of the fun things we did. We started out by everyone making their own pizza's and then we decorated Party hats!
We then had a dance off with the parents, grand parents and grand kids! Dance Party with the Wii!!!!

I have decided that it is useless to try to catch up so I will just start with what we have been doing NOW. Steve and I went to Sedona for a week and it was a much needed vacation. We didn't do too much but hiked around and took a helicopter ride and enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. We did have to get slurpees to carry on the tradition but Giant didn't have them any more so we had to go to Circle K. We also had to do Slide Rock! All in all a pretty nice and relaxing vacation.

Catching UP!

I have been very neglectful this past year so I am going to try to catch up a little bit. We started out in January being blessed with our sweet Camden being born. I can't believe how fast the time has gone and how quickly they have all grown up.
A few pictures of Brooklyn playing in Grandma's backyard.
We didn't get much snow last year but we did manage to go sledding a few times. We have a park near our home that is great for sledding. Makayla was so tiny and Brooklyn was pretty unsure of how it would be but we had fun sliding down the hill with her.

I will try to make more updates and catch up to this year soon.

Dinosaurs in Vegas!

We took a quick trip to St. George and Vegas after Christmas. It was good to get away and enjoy time with my mom and dad and Steve's dad and family. Krista's family came too and it was fun to have the grand kids with us. Brooklyn loves Great Grandpa's singing fish and had a wonderful time with Dallin. Dallin is such a good cousin and watched out for her. The highlight of our trip was an excursion to the Natural History Museum in Las Vegas. I love that museum and it holds great memories of taking all my little preschool kiddies there. It was fun to take Brooklyn and to see how much it has changed.

Looking at all the cool fish with Grandpa!

Brooklyn was brave touching the snake skin.

Look how strong Brooklyn is.

Christmas is my most favorite time of year! I love all the family time and the spirit that is associated with the Christmas Season. We celebrated Christmas early with Shauna and Sam as it was their year to go to Alton. We got to have everyone else over for a short Christmas Eve program and lots of yummy treats. We enjoyed having Daniel and Nicole even though they were supposed to be in AZ but because of the baby were "stuck" with us. Christmas Morning we went to Krista's and Chris' first and watched the girls open presents and played. Brooklyn and I made Kneaders yummy French Toast for everyone and then we headed off to church with Daniel and Nicole. After that we came to our house to open more presents and enjoy each others company. Later we went to Daniel and Nicole's for a yummy Ham and potatoe dinner. It was Nicole's first ham and it was very delicious. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful, loving family who enjoys spending time together. I LOVE MY FAMILY!
