Salt Lake Overnighter

Every year my family goes to Salt Lake and stays overnight. We get up there around 5 and then go to dinner and then after that bundle up really warm and walk around temple square. It is such a fun tradition. We look forward to it every year. This year we had to get 3 rooms! I can't believe how big our family is getting!

Here's us at the Buca Di Peppo Resturant.

Dusty and I bundled up outside. It was so cold!

I think Allie was the warmest out of all of us. She had on the cutest fleece suit, 3 blankets and a bundle me. Needless to say I had to take a blanket off of her. She loved to just look around and see all the people and the lights.

Thanks Mom and Dad for this fun tradition can't wait till next year!

Allie had her first expierence with Santa at our ward christmas party. She did so good she didn't even cry...imagine that.

Santa was fixing her shirt to see what it said

This is Allie and her cousin Jaxen just chilling together. These two are only 2 weeks apart. Can you tell who is older.... Allie is. Jaxen is just such a big boy just like his Dad Jake.

Her shirt says I'm on Santa's nice list. I Love it.

Sleigh Ride

On Monday night we went for a sleigh ride up at the Homestead in Midway. It was so fun. Thanks Mom and Dad!! Here's a picture of the whole crew.

Allie & Ashley

These two are going to be the best of friends

They are 4 months to the day apart. Ashley was born on May 29th and Allie on September 29th.

This is Taylors oops I poop face. There was this really foul smell and I asked Taylor if he had pooped and he just did this look it was so cute I had to take a picture. We made Becca change that diaper fast!


I was in Walmart at the check out stand and Allie started to make those noises. You know the red face and pushing really hard. So, when I got through the line she was still trying to get it all out. I decided to drive home and let her finish. I live about 15 -20 minutes from walmart depending on traffic. When I got home did I get a surprise:

It was everywhere all over her back on her shoulder? Don't ask me how but I couldn't believe how much poop there was. Needless to say she had to take a bath to get all the poop off of her. I had to throw away the onesies because there was just too much poop and I wasn't going to try to scrub it off.

Daddy & Allie

Everyone says Dusty and Allie look so much like eachother. Last Sunday he was holding her and I thought they looked so cute together so I took these pictures. They really do look a lot a like

Allie loves to sit up in the corner of the couch. When I lay her flat she tries to lift her head to sit up.

Christmas Tree

The past 2 years Dustin and I have purchased a cutting down tree permit (I don't know what it's exactly called) so we can cut down our own tree for Christmas. Last year I got to hike with Dusty and pick out the tree. This year I stayed in the car with Al and told Dusty what I wanted on the radios. (Thats the way to do it!)

Here is Duty carry the tree of the mountain.

This is Weston and Wyatt our cutest twin nephews ever.
He is so strong!


Dustin and I got to go to the BYU Utah game and it was amazing! My Dad has the best seats! It's like you can touch the field. Here is a picture of the field from our seats.

I think Taylor is BYU's biggest fan. The people behind us loved him. He would yell," Go Cougars" so loud. I love this boy.

Here is a picture of Doug and Becca and there cute kids Tay and Ash. We had so much fun being at the game with them!
Heres us, Allie is the one wrapped under the blanket asleep. She did so good she slept the whole time. We had so much fun thanks Dad for letting us go.

Katelyn and Matt Risenmay

My sister Katelyn married Matt Risenmay on November 16th. Matt fits in so well with our family we couldn't have asked for a better brother-in-law. Here are some pictures from that day:

This is Allie in her dress. Her and Ashley had the same dress and we didn't even get a picture of them both together in it! Katelyn and Matt getting ready to leave for the temple.

Taylor looked so cute in his tux. Jaxen had one on too but I don't have any pictures of him in it!
A little preview for the night!! Love you guys!

Everyone says that when you child starts to smile and make noises it is the best thing. It makes all of those hard days worth it. I would have to agree. Allie has been such a happier baby now that we got her on Prevacid. She just seems content. I can't complain anymore. Since we have gotten all the kinks worked out she has been sleeping from about 9:00pm to 7:00am. I know I am lucky. This moring I had to wake her up at 7:30 so we could make it to work on time. She loves to sleep. Just like her Dad.
