We went to our ward Christmas party on Tuesday and Santa was there. We were nervous that Brea would be scared and cry but she walked right up to him. We were some of the last people to leave because I took pictures of all the kids on Santa's lap and when Santa stood up to leave Brea started blowing him kisses! I'm glad she wasn't scared. I wished I could have gotten a picture of her smiling.

 I just threw this picture in because Pete made this really yummy pizza on the BBQ last night. The crust was crispy and tasted perfect. We'll be making it again.
We hope everyone is as excited and ready for Christmas as we are!

Christmas card time!

 So I'm sure many of you have already sent out your Christmas cards. I know, I'm a little behind, but we didn't have a family picture that we liked so we had to round up the family and get some pictures taken. I've never ordered christmas cards from Shutterfly but I've seen cards that other people have ordered and they are so cute. I've picked out some cards that I need to choose from. There are so many that I like that it makes it so hard to choose just one. Maybe I should choose a few so that I don't have to narrow it down to just one. Anyway here are some of the cards that I chose. Let me know which one you like the best.

If you want to create and order your own card go here: 
You won't be dissapointed
If you haven't ever been to Shutterfly's website you really should check it out. There are so many cute things that you can do. They have calendars that you can make personal by putting your own photos on the calendar. My family made a photo calendar for my grandma once and she loved it. After I've seen shutterfly's calendars I wish I would have known about them before so I could make one for my mom's birthday. To look at the calendars go here: 
Another really cute thing are the thank you cards. I sometimes get sick of the plain cards that I always buy. There are some really cute cards, to see go here:  
Shutterfly is also offering 50 free holiday cards. To find out how to get your free cards go here: 

I've got to get going on my cards and get them sent out!

 This year we spent Thanksgiving in California. It was such a fun vacation.

 The grandkids found out where the candy drawer was and they kept getting into it. Here are Brea and Grace munching on some chocolate.
 The girls reading some books
 We went to a dutch oven get together and it was cold, so here we are sitting in the back of Jen's sweet new van. The seats turn around so you can have a tail gate party!
 Mimi and Brea waiting to eat some dutch oven cookin
Waiting for some grub again. 
 kisses from Boppa
 We had some girls craft nights and one of the nights we made these fun Christmas banners.

This trip was much needed and we had so much fun! Thanks to everyone for making it so enjoyable!

New look

Our laundry room has a new look, a more organized, clean, hide the clutter look. Pete used his new saw I got him for his birthday to make me some awesome doors to cover my shelves. I LOVE how it turned out...


My most recent project was these blocks for Christmas!
Oh Braiden turned 16! WaHoo for him he can drive!

And I just had to throw this picture in because Brea is on this kick where if you ask her to show you her teeth she will cheese it so you can see her teeth! I think it is pretty dang cute! Love these two!

New Blog/mini business

So I've finally decided to try and advertise. I LOVE to make and decorate cakes and cupcakes. I've wanted to start a cake business for a long time now but I just couldn't decide how and when to do. Well, I'm starting with small steps at a time. So if you need a cake for any occasion or know of someone who does, PleAsE get a hold of me or mention me to your friends and family.
Go to my blog to check out a few cakes, get details, and how to contact me!

We had lots of fun this Halloween, especially because Brea got to dress up and go trick or treating.
I wanted to make her costume because I hate buying costumes that are usually only warn once. So she is supposed to be Tinkerbell if you can't tell. My dad thought she was a butterfly or some kind of bug......o-well she looked cute!
All ready to go get some treats
Visiting Great Grandpa Labrum
And Great Grandma Labrum

Lesha and Colton were able to come to Vernal for the weekend. Lesha was so nice and walked with Brea at the trunk or treat.
This was the only piece of candy we let her have. A banana flavored sucker and she LOVED it! I think Brea had fun but she wasn't so sure what to think about all the weird people in weird costumes. Maybe next year she'll understand.

This last week we had some visitors! Camilla, Grace, Jen, Emmy, and Dane made a long long drive to come stay with us. We had so much fun!

We jumped on the trampoline
Watched all the cars and dogs go by

Played at the park
Brea had so much fun playing with her cousins. We wish we could see them more often, we already miss you guys! Thanks for making the long trip to come see us!

Another Birthday

We got to celebrate another birthday. Pete is 25 as of today. I didn't take many pictures from today but there are a few.
Opening his gift

I got him a nice circular saw. He's been wanting one for a while now. Now that he has one he gets to do all sorts of projects for me. First on my list is a cute little entry way table that I've been wanting.
This was his birthday cake he wanted. Angel food cake with chocolate frosting and strawberries. We had added some ice cream and cool whip to it and it was sooo yummy!
Happy Birthday Pete. You are the best husband and dad ever!
