The Real meaning of "Christ"mas
The Lord sent his only Son,

on a Silent Night...

Finger Lickin' Good

 Me and My Birdies were blessed with the 12 Days of Christmas this year!!
Two of Santa's Helpers delivered these gifts and I will be eternally greatful to them
They brought more than just presents... 
they brought 
pure Joy and excitement 
and the Christmas Spirit to our home
Thank you!!!!
 I will be posting the 12 Days of Christmas, following the Holiday Season...
For I want to enjoy my Holidays with these 3 Birds
 On the First Day of Christmas we received a Gingerbread House making kit
 It was a whole family effort...
The kids did Great!!!
I just kept licking my fingers, and eating the decorations
 but left enough for the house and little Gingerbread Train
Looks like I wasn't the only one lickin' their fingers ;)

Can you say Finger Lickin' Good??

Beautiful Baptism Day

It's Great to be 8
 My Beautiful Girl, Kenley, was Baptized and Confirmed 
a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
This took place on Saturday Morning,  December 1st, 2012
 Kenleys' beautiful white Baptism dress
 Here she is in her Baptism jumpsuit...
doesn't she look darling??
 Kenny wanted to take a picture of me and her...
a little blurry but still cute
 Kenley was Baptized by her Cousin Coleman...
He did an amazing job, and couldn't be more proud
He is my oldest sister's Son, and Kenley was "tickled pink"
that Coleman Baptized her
 Her other cousin, Dallin, confirmed Kenley a member of the church
She was so Ecstatic to have her two oldest boy cousin's from each side of 
the family Baptize and Confirm her on her special day
She was all smiles
and beamed of sweet light
 One of her best friends (and future husband;)) Evan, came and hugged
Kenley after all that was done...
Is she Blushing??
 Kenley's Great Grandma Thompson was able to attend her Baptism 
we are greatful she is still with us to do so...
There were so many that came to support Kenley on her special day...
I don't know why I don't have more pictures??
Afterwards, we went back to my Mom's house for refreshments...
Thanks to all those who came this day!!
It "forever" will be in Kenley's Heart
Families can be Together Forever
I am so thankful for that...

I am so proud of your decision to be baptized and confirmed a member
of the church.  You are such a joy to me.
Always singing, and dancing, and drawing...
your little spirit lights up our world...

I love you Kenny Doll

Officially 9

 Kelly's Son, Kelson, is officially 9 years old!!
This was him at 2 weeks old
his cousin Mason loved holding this little squirt
I did too :) He was so teenie tiny and made the cutest monkey noises
 After school, we went to Grandma's house to open some more 
Birthday presents...
He was Ecstatic!!  I don't know if you can tell??

 Then we hopped in the car, ran and got pizza,
and headed to the skate park to meet up with some friends
 it had been raining all day... but that didn't stop these Die Hards
 These kiddos pulled some amazing and breathtaking
stunts and tricks!!
I kept thinking... tonight is not such a great night to go to the E.R.
but we had a lot of fun, with no injuries!!
 Even Mom's, my Bestie, tried some stunts!!! ;)
You go girl!!!
 Most of my pictures ended up like this... Blurry...
Faster than lightning I tell ya!!
 Here he is...
Birthday Boy!!!
Happy as a Lark
 Die Hards!!!
Winter won't stop them from playing outside
 Dare Devil Brady...

Bad Big Wheel
 We ended the night with Jr. Jazz practice...
we shared doughnuts with the team...
and went home to some Birthday Pie and a slice of Birthday Cake
Make a Wish Monkey Boy :)
Kelson... I love you so much...
