Flaggstaff and Snow

My sister-in-law Laura got batized.  We were glad to be invited and loved being a part of it.  We also enjoyed the snow in Flaggstaff.  The whole family threw a few snowballs and tried to build a snowman, which did not work out due to the fact that the snow was too hard.  But it was fun trying.

Real Cute Stella

Real cute Stella is what my dad would say if he saw her.  Stella disapearred for a little while and when she showed up, she looked like this.  She has on my garter belt from my wedding used as a headband and lipstick all over her lips (which means her face).

Gingerbread Houses

It was time for the Gingerbread Houses.  Every kid did their own except of course for Jude.  His sweet sister Briley decorated his for him.  They all turned out so cute.  The next morning I caught Stella eating candy off of everyones house.  They were not very happy with her.

He has chocolate on his mouth.  He picked up any candy he could find on the ground.

"O Christmas Tree"

Me and the kids went and picked out a tree and brought it home by ourselves.  I would have to say it was a little stressful, but they loved every minute of it.  Every year I say I am going to get a fake tree, but I just cant do it.  I love the smell and the kids love picking their tree out.
Stella has to pose every time the camera is out.  Jude is learning real fast from his sister.

Pictures With Santa

We got our yearly picture with Santa.  It was a good time.  Stella was excited to see him.  He asked her what she wanted for Christmas and she said a book(news to me).  Santa says well your in luck because a book is the gift we are giving to everyone who sits on my lap.  So she is all done already.  Oh and Jude would not stay on his lap.  He kept looking at him and then reaching for me.

We Got Hearted

Amy's girls and their cousins the Kennedys really like David Archaleta and Izzy likes the Jonas Bros.  So they thought it would be funny to put signs up about how they dislike Jonas Bros and how Izzy needs to turn into a Archaletta fan.  It was pretty cute.

Black Eye

Jude is not so steady on his feet.  So whn he falls, he falls hard.  he hit his cheek on the ottoman and the next day he woke up with this.  He has a black eye just about every week, but I thought this one looked pretty bad.

I Wear My Sunglasses At Night

We had a get-together with some friends this weekend.  We decided we were going to put a 80's theme to it.  We played a little Rock Band and just hung out snacking and talking.  I think the best part of the night was just seeing everyone in their outfits.
Ned thought he would bring back Rico from the dead.  If anyone actually knows who I am talking about.  Looks pretty good though.

Trick or Treat

Pirate Jude- He would not stand still so i could get a picture.
Tinker Bell Stella - she loved trick or treating.  Running with all the older kids.
Elizabeth Swan Briley- She lasted pretty long until her boots started to hurt her feet.
80's Punk Izzy - Her and the older girls did not ever want to stop.  We gave them until 9:00
The crazy bunch
The Skousen girls and Glover girls came over and we had a good time trick or treating together.  We had a big bunch of girls thats for sure. (with a little whinning).  We were sad to see the night end and everyone have to leave.

Pumpkin Carving

We carved pumpins with the Skousen's.  Stella wanted a pumpkin with flower eyes.  I did the best I could do.  I am not so good at it.  She liked it though.
Izzy carved hers all by herself.  She did a good job to.
Briley had a hard time putting her hand in.  It took her a while to get it cleaned out.  At one time she even had bags on her hands.  Her pumpkin turned out cute too.
Can you guess which pumkin is what girl.  They thought this would be fun to do.
Were you right.  Or did you just look at their clothes?

Wedding Day

Ned's brother Daniel got married a few weeks ago.  I wanted to post some pictures of their special day.  The girls were flower girls and loved being able to walk down the aisle throwing rose petals.  They had a great time dancing too.

Stella is Three

Stella had a costume party.  She loved all the attention and everyone there just for her.
She was so excited to open her presents.  She would scream every time she opened up one.  It was so fun to watch her.
We painted pumpkins at the party.
We love you Tinkerbell and love that you are part of our family.  You bring some craziness and laughter with your personallity.   Happy Birthday Stella.
