Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree....


Here is our short and fluffy Christmas tree which has been fun this year having a baby girl that can get her hands into everything! She keeps re-decorating it for us-how nice of her!

Daddy and Baby


Here is Jeremy with Reese in her crib (Yes IN the crib) having some fun, she loves playing in bed be it hers or ours....

On our way to Church





Here are some cute pictures of us on our way to church this past Sunday.

Temple Square Christmas Lights









On Monday for FHE we decided to go see the Christmas lights on temple square. It was fun for a little while but when you have a 13 month old who wants to walk by herself it becomes quite a challenge. She hated her big puffy jacket because it restricted so much movement but it was freezing! BRR! She fell down and bonked her head on the concrete, I was getting ugly because Reese was being so awful. Jeremy was trying to get good pictures. Reese got ran over my a man who didn't see our little short stack. She was hungry and tired not a good combo for anyone if our family. So we went and got some hot coco and some chicken nuggets and she was fine after that but we where already on our way home. Maybe next year will be better. I loved being with my family and see the beautiful lights and the temple at night is stunning. I love living it Utah where I am surrounded by them. Here are some pictures from our evening compliments of Jeremy.

Santa's Elves

Black Friday at Gymboree!!






Gymboree is evil for me. I spend way to much money there but I can't help myself! I dont ever buy anything there full price because it's way to expensive but today they had 30% off there whole store and then my wonderful husband found another 20% coupon for me so i got 50% off the whole store merchandise...it was bad, very bad. Here are some pictures of the cutest baby model ever modeling some of her hottest new looks! Notice on the leopard accent black velor suit the cute cat ears!!

Happy Thanksgiving !








This year was our first Thanksgiving alone. We have been at my grandparents for the past two years and we missed being with them but we had fun being with our little family. Jeremy had the whole day off of work which was really nice! It was different having to cook for ourselves but we liked it. We had the traditional turkey, ham, broccoli casserole, green been casserole, rolls, cranberry sauce (which Reese really liked), stuffing and gravy. For desert I made homemade apple pie and my mom's famous and my FAVORITE! Cherry cheese pie. YUM YUM YUM!!! Here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving and a video of Reese eating cranberry sauce watch her face it is so funny!

Melissa asked to see a picture of the taggies that i made so here they are....they are really cute and super soft.

Holiday Jammie Party Part II









Here are some more pictures of Reese in her second set of holiday jammies. Have you noticed I like the stripes and the snowman? We were playing right before she went to bed. I got a snow hat that is HUGE and Reese was having the best time playing with it. In the last picture she doesn't look so happy to be going to bed.

Reese's Hospital Scare



This past Monday we took Reese into her Dr. office because she has this rash that won't go away and when she woke up from her nap she had little broken blood vessels all over her hand. We took her to the doctor and he wanted blood work done on her STAT! He told us she could possibly have leukemia. WHAT!!!??? We where not expecting that, we thought we where just going to get rash cream or something. He told us to go get some dinner because we might be at the hospital all night. YIKES! This is not how I envisioned my day going. We went to the American Fork Hospital where she was born and had her blood tested. It was really hard watching them draw her blood. I was bawling, Jeremy was bawling and of course Reese was bawling as well. It was awful. An hour later the Dr. calls and tells us its NOT leukemia. He thinks she has mono. Mono? On a one year old? Weird. We just got the test results back today and she has a severe case of mono. We probably all do now because we've been kissing on her like crazy like we always do. So we are a house full of mono people. Yuck. These are some pictures of when we got home, she has as sucker in her hand that she does not want to let go (sticky sticky baby)...you can see her bandaged arm from her war wound.

First Flight out of the Traffic Pattern

Hi. So I had flown solo twice already but this was different. On this flight I was able to fly out of the traffic pattern. So in other words I was able to fly about 10 miles away from the airport and practice all the maneuvers that I have learned and then fly back. It was kind of scary but very exciting. I flew at about 135 mph at one point. I also flew at about 8500 feet. It was so exciting to fly that high over the interstate and be able to look down at the traffic while I was flying my little airplane. So anyways it was very fun and I made it back safe and I was buckled up the whole time.

New Camera

Its very durable. We like it so far, I will post pictures soon of Reese in her holiday jammies. I LOVE gymboree's new jammie line.

Goodbye loyal phone, Hello fancy phone!!




I finally got a new cell phone!! Atfer 3 years, yes THREE years with the same phone I finally got a new cell phone and I have to say I love it!! Its a Samsung A 727. I have to get used to all the "fancy" features. My last phone I knew all the ways to work it backwards and forwards. I will miss my old friend of 3 years, it was loyal. Never really had any problems, it was no match for baby slobber. I was the ONLY one in my family that still had their original cell phone, my lovely husband used to not be so good with phones, but since noticing he kept taking my new upgrades he decided to be nice to his phones and thus enabled me to FINALLY get a new phone! Which was nice for a change. I will miss my old phone but I am VERY happy to get a new one. Jeremy has already asked to trade!! LOL! No sir-this one is mine! Now to only keep my new phone away from the slobber machine, it can never be in the hands of Reesey!!!

Jeremy now has flown solo twice. He will fly again today. He is about to do a cross country and a night flight. Hopefully he will get all of his hours this semester for his private pilot. He really wants to get it in time for Christmas. We only have 4 more weeks of school left for this semester!! YEAH!! I only have 2 more semesters and I am done!! Counting down already! We booked Our tickets for Christmas, I will be home for 18 days and Jeremy will be able to be there for 6 days. We are so grateful that he was able to get time off of work. ( Thank you Jeremy's Boss)
