I am so glad that school is out. I have been sooooooooo busy at work and love that I can just relax and take a break and enjoy the the time of our Savior’s birth. Thursday the 16th, I had a photo shoot with my babsitter, Juanita, and her family. I love her. She loves my babies and they love her. It is so wonderful being able to go to work and know your babies are in good hands. June LOVES her husband, Jesus, and her daughters too! I just love this whole family!

June’s new thing is the clothes battle. She refuses to wear clothes. When we put her in her bed, she tears them off the minute we close the door and refuses to lay under a blanket. I was folding laundry the other day while June was playing and within a few minutes I found her like this…How do I get her to wear clothes? Any tips?


Friday, after my car broke down and Celine came to get us, we went to the park with all the cousins for me to take the Christmas photo in their wedding dresses from their Uncle Joseph’s wedding. It took about 400 pictures before we finally got one semi good shot with every body looking!


Most of the photos look something like this!


Afterwards we came back to the house for the annual ornament decorationg party. After cupcakes, pizza, and tons of candy at the photo shoot, the kids were REALLY wound up!


Here are a few of the adorable ornaments the girls made. June especially LOVED the glitter!

Shelby is going to be one next week and I cannot beleive it! She has 8 teeth and LOVES her passy. She eats EVERYTHING except baby food. She likes to watch the Wonder Pets and be carried in my arms everywhere. She will take a few steps at a time but prefers crawling. She says, “mama” “stop” and “wow” She has enjoyed playing in the leaves lately!

Yesterday Lindsay came over with Cooper and Camilla for a little bit. It was a fun time other than being stressed about having my car towed only to find out we are gonna have to pay a HUGE amount to get it fixed. What a bummer right before Christmas!

Camilla and Shelby


June has recently started playing with Shelby which is soooooo cute, but….


it isn’t always fun loving..


And it usually ends like this. We are working on it.


It’s a good think Shelby is pretty tough and resilient!


I think one day she will love her sister! I love this picture of them together. It took bribes of candy and was in no way initiated by June, but you can feel the love!

Merry Christmas, everyone!


Sunday night, I was out with my friend, Missy and we happened to see a living nativity on the side of the road. It was soooooo cool with animals that the kids got to pet! June said “HAppy Birthday, Jesus” She was so excited to see a real baby as Jesus. There was a show and a huge camel came out with three wise men and KNEELED in front of the baby Jesus! It gave me goosebumps! There were angels singing and really pretty music as a narrator told the story of Christ’s birth! We will be making this a tradition to go to as they do it every year
