Merry Christmas 2011! :) We spent Christmas Eve/Morn in Lindon and came home on Christmas! We had sooo much fun and got super duper spoiled! I swear everywhere you looked there were toys for Brayker... Jade bought me a beautiful blue topaz ring with chocolate diamonds! I love it.. and he also got me a dyson handheld vac! I use it everyday!! Poor mom was sick on Christmas, and couldn't even move her arm... turned out that she had bursitis! She got feeling better as soon as they pumped the antibiotics in her!
Brayker tuned a big 3 years old this January! It was kind of a quiet day so Brayker, Knox and I had a teensy birthday party for him! I love you so much Braykman and you have made me so happy. I'm so thankful for you and for your spirit and the joy you bring to your dad and I! Happy Birthday!
Jade's birthday was kind of dragged out a few weeks (lucky guy)...
*I took him to Brian Regan and it was soooo much fun!
*I had my bro-in-law Brian make saddle stands for our front room! They turned out great!! LOVE them!!
*I also bought Jade a new truck for his birthday... I know, I'm the greatest! :)
Jade, I love you so much! Happy Birthday. I don't know how I ever got lucky enough to be with you, but truly, I am the luckiest girl in the world. You make me feel so loved everyday and I am so happy that you chose me. You are the most amazing husband/father and I'm so happy that our boys have you to learn from. Thank you for everything! I love you more than anything and so excited to spend eternity with you..
Mom, Renee, Cally and I took a girls day shopping in Ogden! It was a blast and so fun to visit... Jade took Brayker to the ropin where he cheered for everyone and eventually fell asleep on the horse. :) He was a trooper for sure! Jade dropped him off with me at Target where he fell asleep again! Sweet little guy.
Feb 2: We took a trip to Washington to visit with the fam! Had a blast and loved seeing everyone. Knox was teething so they didn't get to see his normal little self.
Feb 6: Jade and Laura's Happy Birthday! Knox's tooth came through. Went to Palouse Falls, WA. Drove to Kellogg, ID.
Feb 7: Bought our new truck! Stayed the night in Butte, MT.
We finally made it home on the 8th... it was a fun trip and many fun memories made!
Happy Birthday Mom, thanks for everything! You have taught me so much and I hope to be just like you one day... you are an example to everyone and I'm so thankful that my kids have a wonderful grandma like you! (Dinner at Bear Town in Evanston).

In Lindon a few weeks ago, I miraculously got both boys asleep at the same time... :) I had to take some pics! Knox started grabbing his feet while he was asleep and it was the cutest thing ever.
*He now has 2 teeth!

Jade surprised me with a date night... SOOO MUCH FUN! He took me to "Color Me Mine". We both picked out cups to paint.  I love them and it was soo fun!

vegas 2011

In December we headed to St George for a week... lots of roping, shopping, swimming & playing. It was so much fun... Bob & Laura came and stayed the weekend at our condo, and then they took Brayker back to Lindon with them.
We were able to go to the rodeo on opening night. Knox was such a good boy, he sat in his carseat most of the time... the loud noises didn't seem to bother him and he didn't cry once while we were there. Brayker ended up falling asleep. :)
 Everyday in Vegas was spent either at the ropin, or at the Cowboy Christmas trade-shows... Knox was the best boy... Jade & I stayed at the Silverton and were able to see Santa swimming in the tank! It was so fun!

First family outing...

We took our first "Family of Four" outing to the Hogle Zoo and had such a fun time! Brayker loved it and couldn't believe all of the animals... Soo fun!
Grams' 95th birthday! It was fun getting together and showing Grams & Gramps the kiddos.
Randomness: *A week after Knox was born, Presley came! 9-11.  She is a doll and i'm excited our kids are so close. *Spent a few days in Washington catching up. *Had a fun girls weekend in Lindon... made sugar cookies; Jade sent me flowers; bought our Halloween costume (Buzz).
October 27: Had a girls getaway in Logan, did lots of shopping and stayed the night. It was a blast and hope we can do it again soon! 
Halloween came... Brayker and Tagg switched costumes and were quite happy! We got to go trick-or treating and got lots and lots of goodies. :) 
November 6, 2011: Presley & Knox Blessing day! I am truly ashamed and will never forgive myself.  I didn't get any pics of my little angle in his blessing outfit.
Jade did a wonderful job and Knox had an amazing blessing. After Sacrament we met in the cultural hall and had lunch. It was such a fun day and everybody was so great to come & help. 
My birthday week... we did lots of fun stuff! Made fondant for our Christmas candy.. Stephie gave me a babycakes CakePop maker! I love it! We went to Lindon for the weekend and had a yummy oreo ice-cream cake! We aslo ate at Tucano's.. YUM.. and Nana bought Brayker a Buzz Lightyear! Spoiled kid...  
Lots of projects and not as many as I would like to do.. :)
