because we got this for Christmas - the Canon Power Shot SX30IS - and we are in love.

We were using this...

I'll miss you because I love how you look and how tiny you are - but I HATE your pictures.

We tried...

to get a good family picture on our own for Christmas - here's what we ended up with.
Maybe next year will be better.


On December 6th Easton turned 7 months old - and he was 22POUNDS!!! He's just as sweet as can be, SO SO ticklish, and LOVES his sister. He's turned into quite the "mamma's boy" and only wants me most of the time, pretty flattering but it sure makes it hard sometimes. He started saying "DADDA" on his 7month birthday, he is scooting backwards on his tummy and getting really close to crawling! BUT this kid does NOT know how to sleep at night!!!!! He still gets up at least 2 times - on a good night. I guess I'll forgive him since he's so stinkin' cute and cuddly.

AND prunes DO work people!!


I love watching these two play together. Brenna loves to feed snacks to Easton, but I think she really does it so she can sneak a few for herself:)

Rope light...

The kids had a blast helping put up the Christmas decorations. Brenna was SO excited to find out that we actually had all the wonderful decorations she had been admiring in all the stores we went to. Seriously, she clapped and exclaimed "WOW" or "PRETTY" every time something new was taken out of the boxes. The look on her face was priceless - it was like, "WHY did I not know we had all this stuff??!!" Their favorite decoration, however is this silly rope light that I've had since before I was married. I've only used it once, but I have a feeling it will get used more often now. They played with it for HOURS!


Brenna is currently IN LOVE with stickers - and Band-Aids. She got these foam stickers for her birthday and she is obsessed with putting them all over her body - and I am constantly finding them all over the house, stuck together in globs in her purse or stuck to my socks. This girl makes me laugh!


A few days after Thanksgiving, I was able to spend some time with my dear friend Leesa and her family. We grew up together, went to school together - we pretty much did everything together! She moved to New Mexico so we don't get to see each other very often anymore, and this trip I was finally able to meet her new little guy Andrew (who must love me already 'cuz he was born on my birthday).
I "love" how my kids refuse to smile on most pictures nowdays.
 These two little guy are only about a month apart. I think Easton outweighs you a little Andrew!


Boy I'm really behind if I'm just now posting about Thanksgiving! This year we went up to my sister Theresa's house in Logan

 Having a 9 year old cut the pies= Awesome!!
 He said he would eat the tiny piece in the middle!

Thanks for having us Cooleys!!


I was making dinner one night and the kids were playing together. The next thing I knew, Brenna had abandoned Easton so he tried to entertain himself by blowing raspberries on the kitchen floor - it was hilarious but I missed most of it on this video and of course, he stopped when he noticed I was there. He was COVERED in spit - so cute!


Well, I'm a LITTLE behind on blogging - I've been a bit lazy, so here goes!

Back in November, we finally got some snow and Brenna was just BESIDE herself and couldn't WAIT to get all bundled up and head outside.

Don't worry - she can now say snow correctly:)
