Ryker is saying the funniest things lately, and we are constantly laughing. I need to preface this story by saying that Ryker loves to help me make cookies, and he has asked me a couple of times this week if we could make cookies together. I didn't have chocolate chips on hand, so we made snikerdoodles twice. Anyways, we were having family prayer the other night and it was Ryker's turn. His prayer went a little something like this....."Thank you for my many blessings, thank you for my family, thank you for temples, help us to sleep good, please help mom to put chocolate chips in our cookies......" right about then, both Shawn and I are trying to hold in our giggles, and we all ended up bursting into laughter. I took Ryker's subtle hint that he likes chocolate chip cookies a lot better than snikerdoodles:) What a cutie!

Jeff and Aubry (friends from when we lived in Rexburg) came to see us yesterday! They came to Utah from Spokane to visit family, and stopped by our place for a while. Their little girl Claire is sooooo cute, and was born only a couple of weeks after Bridger (I think he already has a crush on her:)
We had so much fun seeing them again after almost 2 years! We talked and laughed and just enjoyed each other's company.

Here is Bridger trying to show Claire his sweat singing skills

I think he is trying to hold her hand in this picture:)

We had our ward Christmas party over the weekend, and Ryker was sooooo excited to see Santa!

Here he is trying to hold in his over excited emotions as he finally got to sit on Santa's lap. I love this face he does when he is trying not to smile!

Here he is telling Santa what he wants for Christmas, roller skates! Ha! He watches this cartoon on tv where one of the characters wears roller skates, and he has wanted them ever since:)

P.S. does anyone have a white elephant gift idea? We need one for one of Shawn's coworkers.
