Christmas time

What a great Christmas we had this year. We spent time with some of our family on Christmas eve and had Christmas day all to ourselves. On Christmas eve we had a little talent show...we had several piano numbers (all very good) and some singing.

Grandma got Alexa a "band" for Christmas. Drums, bells, anything that makes noise is in this kit........SHE LOVES IT!!!

We have fondue every year, a tradition dad brought back from his mission.

Christmas morning.

Dont mind that I just woke up and still have my retainer on.....

Next year Lexie will understand everything better, but it was still fun to see her face light up when she saw her gifts.

Bath time

I love the end of the day when it's time to calm down and have a bath. Lexie loves her bath, and has one nightly!! Is there a better way to end the night?????

Work Office Party

Lexie saw Santa at our work holiday party. She didn't want to sit on his lap, but she gave him a high five. Her name was close to the end and she was getting so upset that everyone else had gifts and she didn't. I've never seen her really jealous until then. When she finally got her tea set she was so happy!! Thanks Santa!!!

PS....she says HO, HO, HO every time she sees him, it's so cute!


Go HERE to see my latest cookies. Here are of few pictures of Lexie baking and enjoying a cookie herself!! Man she is just soooo cute! Merry Christmas Everyone!

I think it was something we ate, but both Alex and were sick starting at 2:30AM Sunday morning. The only reason I'm mentioning this is because we basically neglected Lexie all day, it was bad. So bad in fact, at one point she came up to me with a diaper and laid down.....the girl was desperate. We both feel better today and been loving her more than normal.
These pictures were taken last night, she was ready for some attention!!

Oh Honey!!

Last night was our first experience with Lexie throwing up. Until now she has never had any tummy problems, poor girl. She threw up about 5 times and then was fine. It must have been something she ate or drank, although I had everything she had and wasn't sick at all. Strange. She's all better today so we are thankful!!!

Thanksgiving Weekend

We were lucky enough to go to visit our brother Jared and his family in Oregon this year. We missed Stephen and his family and Aaron and his family and Ricky.....but everyone else was there.

The girls even helped with the secret family recipe is not thanksgiving without them!!!
The Thanksgiving feast was so good. Tons of food and it was all really good!

We had tons of great food! One day we had scones, they were huge and YUMMY!

We celebrated Toree's birthday including the Limbo!
