Belated Birthday Post

Olivia is officially ONE!!
(well she has been for a while now, hence the title)

Yes, we stripped her down so that she could dive into her cake.. but she really didn't. I wasn't too disappointed about that either.
We celebrated Olivia's birthday with her cousin Sydney, who's birthday is the day after hers

Olivia looks a little unsure about those candles.

Then a few days after we celebrated Olivia's birthday with my family we headed up to Moscow, Idaho to celebrate Thanksgiving and many other festivities that we had going on.

Then after the holiday we celebrated Olivia's birthday, again, with Chris' side of the family.
This time we decided not to strip her down and let her do her own cake eating. It was just much easier.

There is one thing I know Olivia likes now that she is one. That is riding front facing in her car seat. It has made the traveling in the car much better for everyone.
Happy (late posted) Birthday Princess!
You have added so much happiness to our lives.
We love you!

A Ride on the Polar Express

The other night we were able to board the Polar Express, visit
the North Pole and meet Santa Claus.
Nothing but great times with the fam.

Olivia got to meet the Conductor and the Claus Family
( Her first experience with Santa Claus was not great,
you can't see but she was not happy:)

Blake was so excited to see Santa that I could hardly get him to take his eyes off of him and look at me so I could take a picture. I must say he was so cute!

And of course we were all able to leave with a souvenir. The magical Bell. I hope that we can all hear the bell ring, just as Blake does and that we can truly believe in much more than just
Santa Claus. I love the Christmas season... I can't think of anything better to celebrate than that of the birth of our Savior.
Happy Holidays!

Sunny San Diego

This last weekend we went to San Diego for Chris' brother's wedding. The wedding was in the San Diego temple. The temple was very beautiful and the bride and groom seemed very happy. The reception was at Cari's parent's house. They have a beautiful home and they did a great job with the reception. Chris's whole family (now at 21 people) were able to make it down to for the wedding, so it was fun having everyone together. While in San Diego, we also took the opportunity to go to the beach to enjoy the nice weather. It was a fun weekend and we wish Darren and Cari the best.
