December Happenings

Ryker and Bridger on Santa's lap at our ward party. This was just before Bridger realized what was happening and started crying.
Ryker talking with Santa, he was so excited to see him...such a fun age for Christmas!

This is at Ryker's preschool Christmas program, they combined morning and afternoon classes. I tried posting a video of some songs but my computer wouldn't let me. The program was so cute though, and Ryker sure belted out the songs:)

One day, we wanted to go outside and play in the snow and I pulled out this old hand-me-down snow suit. Bridger was not a fan of wearing it at all. Shawn and I were cracking up because he reminded us of the kid on the Christmas story, he was not a happy camper when he fell and coudn't get up:)
This face says it all..... "mom will you please take this rediculous suit off me?!!"

Exciting News!

My boys have some very exciting news, and they wanted to spread the word....
Yep, they are going to be big brothers! HOORAY for a new baby coming our way! Due June 1st, I am 14 weeks along, and I just got to hear the heartbeat today (I love that sound). Anyways, we couldn't be more happy and wanted to let everyone know.

Such a Big Helper:)

Bridger is so good at making sure all of my drawers and cupboards are cleaned out. He goes on his cleaning sprees multiple times a day, making sure nothing is left in the drawers and cupboards.....and leaving it all on the floor:) Just yesterday, I couldn't find my deodorant and had to use Shawn's. Later that day, I found that Bridger had decided to reorganize and place it very neatly in the cupboard with all our DVD's. Bridger also thought all of my dishcloths, hot pads, and oven mits needed to be rewashed and put them in the dishwasher.
Such a considerate little guy, always wanting to help where he can:)

Ryker was captain hook this year for Halloween. He was so funny when he would put on this costume, he wouldn't let me call him Ryker... I had to call him cap'n. Cute:)
I couldn't decide what to have Bridger be this year, I thought I had a little warm puppy outfit but I couldn't find it anywhere. So instead, I took this old hooded sweatshirt of mine that I never wear, and some brown fabric I had on hand and made him into...
Peter Pan. Needless to say, there were some major sword fights at our house:)
He didn't like keeping the hat on, but he loved playing with the little sword.

My sister came to visit from Twin Falls this weekend, and we hosted a class to make these temple pictures. I love how they turned out! I still need to touch up the frame in a few places and distress it just a little bit. but for $46 and a very large beautiful picture to hang in my home, it was way worth it!! If you would like more info on these, go to

My sister also took our family pictures for us, THANKS LINDS!!! I love how they turned out too!

Cutie #1:)

Cutie #2:)

I love this picture because it is Bridger in his element. We kept trying to get Bridger to sit down and take an individual picture, but all he wanted to do was this.... You can tell how happy he is to be running:)

I married such a hottie!!!

Preschool and other stuff

Here is Ryk on his first day of preschool. I was a little worried because lately he has gone through a very clingy stage, not even wanting to go to primary by himself. But he LOVES his new teacher Miss Suzie, and he asks me everyday if he gets to go to preschool. I also think it helps that his class is all boys:) He looks so much like Shawn's younger pictures in this picture.
Here he is walking out of preschool on the first day, saying goodbye to miss suzie.
We got to see our good friends the Feckleton's over Labor Day. Their little daughter Claire turned 1 and we were invited to the party. It was so good to see them again. I wish they didn't live so far away.
Here is just a picture of my little stud. I can't get a good picture of him looking at the camera because he won't hold still for 1 second, I swear he went from crawling to running! But I just thought he looked so cute all ready for church I had to post this picture
And here is michael phelps....I mean Ryker after a good swim:)

This is Tegan. She is such a miracle for her family. Her mom and dad waited years to be able to have her. Tegan is now in need of a miracle. She is only 2 years old, and has been diagnosed with a very rare, and very aggressive type of cancer. She is undergoing very intense treatments in Salt Lake where she is temperarily living in an appartment with her mom and grandma. Her dad stays at their home in Idaho where he continues to work, but he visits them on the weekends. If you would like to help this family in any way, go to .

Yep, he is 1 years-old

My little Bridger Turned 1 on the 19th. He is at such a fun age.. exploring, discovering, and into EVERYTHING:) Here he is emptying our DVD's. As you can tell, he thinks he is pretty funny. Look at that innocent face though, what a cutie!

Opening presents, he was way more interested in ripping the wrapping paper.

Ryker got in on the present fun

His first taste of the frosting on his birthday cupcake...
Frosting is so much fun to squish between the fingers:)
He liked the cupcake
Bridger has started walking as well, here he is strutting his stuff (keep scrolling)
