We were playing a pretty serious game of Blokus with Emma. I’m pretty sure she won. 🙂

Yummy dinner night with Tam and Greg. These were frequent.

Grandpa is always learning. He is such an inspiration. I love that man.

Happy 88th birthday, Grandpa!! We were all hosted by Chad and Crystal. It was a wonderful family party. I am so blessed to live near this amazing man. He is the hardest worker I’ve ever met. We love him!

Crystal had just come home from scout camp. Haha. We love family!

Cute cousins.

We love our Sunday dinners and games with Grandpa and Grandma, too! We are SO lucky to have them all to ourselves in Arizona.

We took a lot of these pictures to send thank-you’s to our friends and family for awesome Christmas gifts!

We had Shauna and Taylor Tondevold, and the Bradshaws over for a fun game and ice cream night. Shauna is also pregnant! They were our favorite friends in the Augusta Ranch 1st Ward.

Emma’s fourth birthday party in Sharron’s backyard! It was a fun carnival. She had a great time with yummy food and fun friends. Tom and I were in charge of the “Fun and Fishing” booth.

Celebrating the New Year with the Kittermans in Riverton! We had a fun night of game playing and food eating. I am excited for 2012! It’s going to be a life-changing and exciting year.

IMG_0348_small

Here are five of the puzzles that we completed over the break. It was a good time! After one of the puzzles, I had some crazy back pain and could barely move the whole next two days. I guess I was too bent over for too long.

IMG_0753_small

Jonny with his homemade gift from Mom. An entire scrapbook of his baby pictures!

IMG_0754_small

I was a little intimidated this first round of homemade gifts. I decided to make Torbin his own blocks and block box. It ended up being pretty expensive with all of the mistakes I made, but he seemed to like it!

IMG_0755_small

Anna’s homemade gifts (maybe from Brynn?).

IMG_0757_small

Tom and Co. went over to Grandpa’s to help him install his new TV. Cute Grandpa Blodgett.

Grandpa’s homemade from Clairey-Boon.

 Tom’s homemade for Jimmy. He took that straight from a picture that Jimmy posted on Facebook.

IMG_0797_small

Tom’s homemade gift from Brittany. She carved them by herself!! So talented.

IMG_0745_small

My homemade gift from Chris. Haha. They also gave us pictures of me and Tom to replace the ones of Chris.

IMG_0742_small

I was pretty exhausted on the way home from Utah. I was super nauseated…from being pregnant. (Not sure if I’ve mentioned that yet.) I could barely stand for more than 5 minutes, even after sitting on the flight for an hour.

IMG_0743_small

Ha. Tom took this picture, I guess to commemorate my first (and it turns out, my last) time throwing up because of “morning” sickness. Never will I drink grape-juice again. My stomach hurt all the time.

IMG_0351_small

Happy first birthday, Grant!! We had a fun family party at Cafe Rio to celebrate. We sure love this sweet little man.

IMG_0354_small

Gerardo and Brianna being cuties.

Hello, from school.

IMG_0391_small

Kendall and Sadie. Silly girls.

IMG_0419_small

Math Blasters!

IMG_0359_small

Date night with my sexy husband. I’m pretty sure it was Native New Yorker. So yum. I was really nauseated, but I kept it down.

IMG_0360_small

Food is so good.

IMG_0363_small

My piano playing man. Love him.

IMG_0365_small

It looks like fall!…..in January. Love Arizona.

IMG_0378_small

We don’t get enough shots of the two of us together. Looking so good. 🙂 

IMG_0395_small

We loved our LA Fitness memberships. I loved going with my husband to workout and keep healthy.

Hanging with Ryan and Jaida and Grandpa Hancock in his great backyard. 

IMG_0428_small

Party animals at Tammy’s house. I guess we wore them out with our fun games and conversation.

IMG_0430_smallWith the recommendation of Grandma and Grandpa Bay, we took a tour around the huge Mesa Farmers Market. It was crazy with people. We didn’t end up buying anything spectacular, but it was great to people watch!

Temple date night in Mesa! Going to the temple with my husband is the best date I could ask for.

Just eating a popsicle to make my tummy feel better.

IMG_0791_small

We went to downtown Mesa to watch Brandon Halbert play drums with his old band. It was a good time! I know we went somewhere with Brein and Brandon after, but I can’t remember where. We love hanging out with them!
