Having fun playing at Margaret's. Our cute neighbor who asks the kids to come over when she is babysitting her grandkids.

Family date night to DQ for shakes.

We got a bunch of snow this last weekend and the kids were out playing in it every minute they could. They love to sled down our hill that is right outside the garage side door. So perfect!! They were out playing before Church, and after Church, every minute they could. It was perfect to get a dumping of snow for the weekend when Brandon was home to play with them and help get them all dressed in their gear.

Family in town

Brandon's brother Jordan came up with his family from Vegas and we had such a great weekend together with them.

We went up to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. The kids have been wanting to go for a long time and they loved it.

We got ice cream up there and then headed over to the Curiosity Museum.

We also got to go to Jumanji with them, have fun game nights and yummy food, and went swimming at the Provo Rec together before they left last Monday. Such a great time!

New Year

Brandon's mom and dad always put on such a good New Years party. We did it on the 30th this year since New Year's Eve was on a Sunday. We had amazing Chinese food as always, and then moved all the furniture out of the family room to get ready for the chaos.

Silly string is the worst!

Ava soothing herself through all the loud noises.

Confetti everywhere! But we love it.

I never get any good pictures of my kids in the mess. They had fun though.

A few days later it was time to celebrate Brandon's 34th birthday. So we went back to Pizza Factory (it's pretty much the only place we can take our kids out to eat where they will actually eat). The food was amazing and we had a great time.

Kallie got her very own salad bar for the first time.

Cute smiles from our Ava girl.

Had to take advantage of Ava falling asleep in the car and just hold her for awhile before I put her in her crib. She is such a busy, active baby, and never gives us any snuggles.

She fell asleep on Brandon's lap while I was at Church with the other kids. We love our baby Ava!
