We had such a wonderful Holiday Season. It was our first christmas in our house and we loved every minute of it!! Christmas eve we went to our annual Christmas Eve party at Grandpa and Grandma Homers church. This year my sweet Grandpa was "Santa's Helper".  I am such a lucky girl to have such great grandparents. Christmas Morning sure came fast/early when your up until 2 a.m. setting up a ping pong table. But to see the excitement in their eyes is priceless and so worth it!

First ski day of the season was a success!! First time skiing as a family of 6!! No more babies for me to stay home with. YAY!!  This is Grey's first year and he is doing awesome!!  As Grey and I were sitting at the lodge taking a break, I asked him if he loved skiing.  He said "No I don't love it, I just like it!!" Funny Boy!!

Happy Halloween

Is it just me or does it feel like you celebrate Halloween the whole month of October. (I'm kind of a halloween grinch!) Grey had his very first friend Halloween party. He was so worried about "mommy being home all be herself." Please stay little forever Grey!! 

Then we had our annual halloween party at Grandma and Grandpa Cable's house. With the traditional fish pond, and homemade doughnuts. It was even nice weather this year.... so  Grandma set the fish pond up outside. We love playing with our cousins. And then of course we hurried back home to Trick or Treat around our neighborhood. I wasn't able to get a picture of all the kids before Elle left to go with her friends!!

Silly Faces!!

Elle's 12th Birthday

This little peanut turns 12 today! At 3:03 to be exact. She was the one who started me on this journey....called motherhood! I'm not sure WHY they have to grow up so dang fast!! Oh how I miss that little 4 yr. old. But I'm proud of the beautiful YW she has become!! Happy Birthday Beautiful!!

Elle's birthday was a SUCESS!!! To start if off she had early day at school so we met Grandma and Grandpa Cable down at the Ogden temple to do baptisms for the dead.....and then after that I had a surprise party all planned out. She thought she was going to have her birthday party in a few weeks..... I tricked her. Little did she know I was planning a party all along!! She was surprised and it was so fun to see her reaction!!! I took 4 of her friends to get pedicures, then we came home opened presents, ate pizza, had ice-cream sundaes (per her request), and topped it off with a movie.... Jurassic World!! I think she had a great day!!! I'm so glad it all worked out. Surprise parties are so so fun!!

Surprise!! All of the girls were waiting at our house.
So when she walked in from doing baptisms they were all there.
