Spencer was not impressed with sitting on Santa’s lap, but Laney was thrilled!

2014-12-12 19.45.12small

As all 100 of us were singing with Santa, Spencer decided to head up to the front and lead the music. He surprises me every day with the funny things he does.

2014-12-12 15.19.58-1small

My friends from Arizona, Ted and Rex, came to visit!

2014-12-11 17.52.45small

Angel face. I’m so grateful for her sweet and patient personality.

We had a surprise visit with Uncle John John! Spencer loves his aunts and uncles (and Kevin the cat).

2014-12-11 14.09.12small

Spencer had a blast running around BYU’s campus. Maybe someday he’ll be an HFAC boy. ๐Ÿ™‚

2014-12-11 13.19.59small

We got to have lunch with little Glen at the MOA Cafe a few days before he left for his mission. We sure are going to miss him! I’m so grateful that he was in Provo the last few months. My kids at least know who he is. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2014-12-11 10.34.16small

Tom had the great idea to make a cat mask. haha

2014-12-11 09.51.50small

Ice Skating Christmas party with the Bays! It was so much fun! We had a great time.

2014-12-09 14.59.51small

Spencer doesn’t take naps anymore. He does “quiet time” for an hour each afternoon. He loves it because he gets his pacis. I checkedย on him the other day and he said, “I’m sitting on the edge of my bed!” This boy won’t dare climb out of his crib, but evidently he’s brave enough to sit on the edge. ๐Ÿ™‚

2014-12-09 14.19.31small

Testing out apple sauce.

2014-12-09 13.24.13-1small

We went to the mall’s Christmas concert series with Diane Dalton and Sarah. It was a fun outing.

2014-12-08 19.32.38small

He’s a ticklish boy!

2014-12-08 18.00.41small

He showed me his triscuit and said, “It looks like a temple!”

2014-12-08 13.12.52-1small

Laney is going through a phase where she makes this face about 1,000 times a day. It cracks me up.

2014-12-08 09.21.01small

This boy LOVES to color. Just loves it. He always tells me what he’s drawn. Usually he’ll make random scribbles and then decide what it is. Often they are letters, sometimes animals.

2014-12-07 17.43.08small

We had Sunday dinner at Jon and Anna’s in Eagle Mountain and made fun gingerbread trains!

2014-12-07 15.21.22small

ย These boys were reading “Where the Wild Things Are.” It’s a disconcerting book, I guess.

Sleepy babies.

Tom made this amazing tent for our nephew Torbin for the Bay homemade Christmas. Spencer was testing it out. He said, “I’m driving to church in my tie.”

2014-12-02 11.22.13small

Bless Costco for having double carts.

2014-12-01 17.37.01small

My cousin Ryan is a published author! His book was great. So proud of him!
