Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus

Their outfits didn't stay on for very long but they liked playing the parts :)
This is what I got for Christmas :) (Sorry I couldn't figure out how to flip the picture?)

The kids got to see Santa at our ward party. They had so much fun :) Travis and my mom took the kids and said it was really nice they had a catered dinner and a hired Santa who looked like the real thing :)
We spent Christmas evening with the Lakes. The kids loved their presents :)

Oh baby!!!

Here she is Taylin Chelsie Lake born a day after my birthday Dec. 17th she just didn't want to share. And she was brought home in a stocking just like her mom.

We can't get enough of our new little baby she is so adorable :)

Cutting down our tree!

We have a Christmas Tradition that we go to a u-cut farm pick out our tree and cut it down ourselves. It is really fun and I love getting all bundled for our tree searching adventure. After a while they all start to look the same so we just have to say okay this one! We found a perfect tree this year we love it!!!!

Keslee's Mermaid Birthday

Keslee wanted to have a Princess mermaid/ariel party with only girls so we had nine adorable girls over for our party :)
We decorated like we were under the sea with lots of fish hanging from the celing and balloons everywhere. Like we were swimming in the water :)
The fishing game was the hit of the party they wanted to do it over and over again!

Travis had more fun then the little girls did!!!
Blowing out her five candles.
They all got to dress up like mermaids with shell bras and garbage sacks cut out like fins and flowers in their hair.
Ariel cake of course :)

The pregnancy glow!

One of the worst parts about being pregnant for me are the comments that I get from people. Now I understand that no one is trying to be mean and sometimes people just don't know what to say but does that give everyone the right to just say whatever they want? I wish I could say what I wanted to but that doesn't really go over so well. I don't understand who said it was okay to tell a pregnant woman exactly what she looks like over and over. But if I went up to someone who had a big nose and told them that there nose was so big that wouldn't really work would it. Okay I know that I am a little hormonal but it is just getting really old! So this is my way of saying what I always wanted to say (but not to anyone's face you know I wouldn't want to be rude) :)

These are some of the most popular ones:

"Oh you look like you are going to pop!" Okay How do you respond to that? I am not a balloon thanks.

"You are getting so big!" Yeah you think I don't know that?

"Are you having twins?" That is just another way of saying that I am look like a whale. Nice!!

"When are you going to have that baby?" Believe me I'll let you know!!!!

"Wow you are looking so fat!" Okay I only heard this one once but seriously someone said the word FAT!

"Oh my gosh does it hurt?" Yes it hurts what do you think!!!

So next time you want to make small talk with a very hormonal pregnant woman just ask her how she is feeling or tell her she has the glow of a pregnant woman or ask her if she needs a foot massage! These other comments don't make us feel any better. No one wants to hear that they are so big even if we are, I understand I am big I can hold a freakin cereal bowl on this thing alright you don't need to say it out loud can't we all just pretend PLEASE!!!!! :)

Trick or Treating!

Brixton the Pumpkin!

Keslee the Spider Witch (OoooH Scary!)

Keslee and Brixton with their cousin Elias the Bummblebee. Sorry it was really tuff to get a good picture of these three tonight. This is as good as it gets!

"Open Sucker Mama!!" this is all I ever hear from my little boy. He ate three on Halloween because he kept finding people (or should I say suckers) that would open them for him because I wouldn't :) Little stinker. Suckers are his favorite thing in the entire world!

Here we are trick or treating around the neighborhood we are crazy it was like 8 pm these poor kids they are so tierd. The things we do on Halloween just for some free candy!

We got it down by the first few doors they would say Trick or Treat or Brixton's words "Stik a steet!" Then when they got their candy they would say Thank you and then they would yell Happy Halloween or in Brixton's language "Happy Hween!" They were adorable!

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Of course we always end up doing most of it but the kids like it anyway. Keslee really did most of hers this year. I was really proud of her and she was pretty proud of herself too! :)

Travis carved the Phantom!

Brixton took a little break for an ice cream sandwich! "Five more!" he says.
And the winner is Mine!!!! I spend way too long on this pumpkin. Once I got started I couldn't stop. This is my first decent pumpkin in my whole life I must say I am very proud of it :)

The Pumpkin Patch

We have a fun Halloween tradition every year we take to kids to a pumpkin patch and pick out our pumpkins. There is a hay bail pyramid to play on a corn maze, a petting zoo, tractors for the kids then we take a hay ride out in the field and pick our own pumpkin. Lots of fun for the kids. We all love going. Good ole' family fun huh :)

Hawaiian North Shore

This was one of our favorite spots. Good food and not so busy with tourists. The Shaved Ice here was the best we went back three of four times. Oh and the garlic shrimp very tasty.
We even got to see a sea turtle he was so cute I had to get friendly :)
The tourist trap!!!
Travis going snorkeling or trying too ?
The Pearl Harbor Memorial was very cool. I have never seen one that goes so in dept as Pearl Harbor did I really felt like I understood what happened that day. The USS Arizona was heartbreaking to see and to think of all those people who did in it. It was extremely sad.
