December so far...

December has been super busy and has pretty much flown by. Friday is Tyler's last day teaching until January 7th. It has been so nice to have him home more since he's not coaching basketball this year. That may have been one of the best decisions we have ever made ;)

Tyler and I have been called to teach the 5 yr olds in our ward at church. It's quite the change and we spend most of our class time trying not to laugh at some of the crazy stuff the kids say. Haha. They are so cute and funny, but a lot of work :)

Noah is getting excited for Christmas! He wakes up every morning and turns on the Christmas tree. It's his little "job" and is super cute, except when it's like 4am, then it's not cute at all. He keeps talking about Santa Clause and maybe he will get some gifts from him if he's good!

Layla is growing like a weed! I took her in for her 4 months appointment the other day. She is weighing in at 15lbs and is 26 inches long. The doctor said she's in the 75th percentile for everything. She's so cute! She has a complete strip of baldness at the back of her cute head! I'll post a pic here because you have to see it to believe it. She actually looks like an old man from the back :). She still sleeps through the night for me and is seriously such a good baby!

I have been busy with Christmas and everything else. My book-club had brunch the other day and we did a gift exchange. It was so fun! I love book-club and each and every lady in there. So fun;)

Tyler has been busy with both of his jobs and is looking forward to the holidays for a break! We went to his PSR Christmas party the other night. It was so much fun! It was at a steakhouse and the food was amazing! We had so much fun and I only had to tell Tyler to tone it down a few times :). Seriously...whooping and hollering every 5 seconds....wrong crowd! Haha.

It snowed her the other day. Like the real kind. The kind that just dumps and dumps and you look out the window and think its so pretty, but you're also so glad you're inside! Maybe we will have a white Christmas!!

This year, my mam came to visit for Thanksgiving. She flew up to Idaho Falls and I drove there and picked her up! The kids were DONE by the time we were driving home and I thought I would slam my head against the window, but we made it! The next morning my mam took Noah on their annual walk. It was 28 degrees...brrrrr!
We had such a nice, relaxing day filled with too much food of course. The next morning we set off for Boise, ID for a couple of days. It was so fun and relaxing. We had a blast :) Here are a few pics from the holiday:

Christmas Picture

I went back and forth one million times this year about Christmas cards. We were going to get professional pics done, but then we had no time. I didn't really want to pack my kids out in the cold for a photoshoot anyway. So I wasn't going to do Christmas cards but then I couldn't stop thinking about it. We've done one every single year. Anyway....we got this pic taken for a couple of dollars at the mall. And I actually love it. It's our very first one with all of us in it including Layla. We plan on getting pics done while down in Vegas...where it's warmer, nicer and just all around better ;) Here's our pic:
