Bailey getting to be one of the first ones to eat a
piece of her Birthday cake. She mainly like eating
the frosting on top.
Singing Happy Birthday to Bailey. She actually knew
how to blow out the three candles.
My little three year old.
She loved all the toys she got. She could not concentrate
on just one.

table while Carter ate at his high chair.
My cousin Reed and his wife Christine.
It can't get any easier than Little Caesar.
I can't believe my little girl is three. She has been such a blessing in our lives. I love this age because she is so eager and willing to learn as we go over sentences and words. It seems she is picking something up everyday. She is always bounding with energy and entertained very easy as she plays. She also will settle down for a little cuddle time as we read a book or let me tickle her arm. For I love my little girl!

Bailey loves being tickled. My grandma knew
just what to do. Bailey was trying hard not to go
Bailey loved her hat that she wore it all day long.
She loved it so much that when Carter took it off
she started crying. Don't mess with the hat!!
We went to my grandparents after we opened all
of our gifts and had breakfast. We wanted to see them
open the gifts that we got them.
My model!!! Bailey posing with the hat her aunt
Kayla made for her.
For Christmas Kai and Bailey and Carter got tables
from Grandma Ott. They spent a half hour sitting
and coloring on this table.
I was trying to have her help me open this gift,
but she was not really interested in opening any
gifts. She just wanted to play with them instead.
I think she will understand more next year.
I am not sure what is going on here. I think that
they are just playing around.
Kari was making Carter Smile so we could take a
picture. I just wish we could get him to look at
Yeah, you can tell Carter does not want to have
anything to do with this hat also made by Kayla.
Yeah, he didn't really care for this hat either.
We spent our Christmas at Kelly and Kari's house in
Twin Falls. We ended getting up about 7:30 to Skype
my mom so should be with us on Christmas day and
watch the kids open up their gifts. Kari got her a camera
and microphone so we could do this. It was nice. I think
the last time I spent Christmas with my mom was in 2006
when she met Jared for the first time. So it was nice to see
her on camera instead of talking to her by phone. I was really
spoiled this year with everything we got, especially the kids
were. I really wanted to make sure they had a nice Christmas
even though Jared and I did not do anything for each other.
My Christmas gift from Jared will come at the end of January.
It's gas to get to Twin with. Kari is giving me her really nice
Entertainment center when they get their big flat screen TV.
I am really excited to get it. It is really nice and made from

Kayla, Kari & Kelly.
We had to get a picture of us in here.
Angie my cousin's daughter so excited to be getting
My grandpa and Bailey bonding.
This year we change things up by having a White
elephant exchange. My grandparents usually head
the Christmas eve get together by giving each one
of us a gift with a scripture that relates to one of our
talents or gifts that we all individually have. I guess there
is always change, but it is hard when you instilled this
tradition in your family and now have to change it. It
was still fun though because the most important thing
was that we were still together. I got a Santa Claus pitcher
and Jared got prunes. Yum!! Not.
My grandparents have been really good examples
to me. They have showed me that fairy tales do
exist and if you live your life righteously you can
have a good life.
Eating Christmas dinner.
Kelly and Kari posing for the camera.
Carter was not interested in eating at the kiddie
table. So daddy held him while he ate!
Tyler, Garret, and Matt waiting in line for dinner.
I always look forward to getting together with my
family. This year we met at my aunt Terry Lynn's
house on Christmas eve for a good ham dinner.
It is nice to be with those you know and love and
be able to joke around and laugh with one another.
I love these times because of the many memories
that are created and are able to be cherished for
many years to come.
My cousin's wife Flor just had their little baby at the
beginning of November. Jared was so cute with her as he
was quick to want to hold her and kept talking and looking at her.
I loved watching him hold this little baby. He is so loving and caring. He us such a wonderful daddy to our little ones.

We were at Wal-mart getting some groceries and
picking up a few Christmas items when Bailey
found this little baby doll. I was very impressed,
because every time the baby doll started to cry
she would put the bottle in its mouth and then
caressed it. What a good little mommy!

Bailey loves pointing at pictures around the house
and individual naming everyone off. I had received some
Christmas pictures and cards that I put on my fridge. Bailey
kept pointing to them and saying "What is that?". I was trying
to help her say "Who is that". She some how got it mixed up by
saying "Poop is that". My silly girl!
