12 Years! (My Favorite Pictures of Gary)

Gary and Kyler

Gary and Kaden

Classic Gary (always happy and trying to make me laugh)

My all time favorite picture! Kamryn and Gary (we had raccoons on our roof when we lived at 13th East- they were living in the chimney and would keep Gary awake all night walking around on the roof and jumping on it from the tree after looking for food) So as I was taking the picture I said "show me what you think of the Raccoons"- I just Love it!

Gary and I have now been married for 12 YEARS! can you believe it?

How fun the last 12 years have been- with 7 moves, 6 job changes (for each of us), 3 dogs (none living with us anymore), 3 kids and I can't even keep track of how many different cars and trucks. Even through all of this, life has been so much fun together and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for everything! I sure love ya.

Cute as a Bug!

Kaden and his friends were playing with the dress ups on Friday and Kaden came up dressed like this, with another one for Kyler to wear. What a thoughtful Brother!

Fun with Bubbles

I was doing dishes the other day and Kaden was so excited about the bubbles. This is what he came up with.

How Funny!

On Sunday night Kaden awoke in the middle of the night and came into bed with us, he was in the middle and he and I were facing each other. After a little while he woke me up and said-"Mom, your snore is getting in my eye!" , he then wanted to go to his own bed. What cute kid.
On that same night only earlier Kamryn and I were talking about school the next day a what to do if she missed the bus- her constant worry. She said "Mom, I'm just a worry kid". All of you that know Kamryn know this is true. I don't know who told her she was- but it fits.

Hooray for Cousins

Last weekend we had Rachael's kids and my mom come and stay with us. The kids were really quiet and this is how I found them, all of them, playing- without being forced- Pretty, Pretty, Princess. For those of you who have never played it. You spin and move spaces whatever you land on you put on that piece of jewelry. The boys had a blast. On Saturday morning we then got up and went sledding. It was great- all the kids went down the big hill, Jessica even made the jump and landed somewhat gracefully. Of course I forgot the camera, but the kids had tons of fun and didn't even seem to notice the freezing cold wind blowing out of the canyon. What troopers!

Then it was time to get ready for bed- the boys got matching pj's for Christmas so we needed pictures.

of EVERYONE! (jessica actually let me put her hair in curlers, since I don't get to use them on anyone else- What a nice girl!)

Taylor had so much fun the night before playing pretty, pretty princess he dressed up (all on his own) in the blue jewelry. SO CUTE!

Batman even dropped in for a visit while the kids were there. (Kaden wore this just about the whole time- Thank you Santa)
We had a great time and are looking forward to having them over again- soon!
Thanks to Rachael and Phil for letting them come.

Can you believe it?... Eight Months already

Kyler is sooooooo much fun lately. Today at church many people commented on what a good kid he has been in the last couple weeks, comments like "I don't hear the baby crying, are they at church?" or "Wow, you were able to stay for all of sacrament." He is getting tons of teeth, babbling, hugging, kissing and grabbing at everything. We sure love him.
How glad we are that he is in our family!
