The most wonderful time of the year....

It is so true that the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. I love being with family and celebrating the birth of our Savior. We did a lot over the Holiday. We went to Mesa for Christmas and enjoyed a week of fun there with Lukes family it was nice having all of his brothers and sisters together that hasn't happened in a long time. Than we were home for a couple of days. Monday we went to Pomerene I enjoyed sometime with my sisters and Luke got to help my dad build a fence. Now we are home relaxing and going to enjoy the next couple of days at home before school starts again. Here is a few pictures of some fun things we did this holiday season...

Luke has always wanted a Steve Nash trading card so he was very happy when he found some in his stockings
Aubrey loves her bike:)
Can't have Christmas without the NATIVITY and FOOD!!!
Working hard all Christmas Eve to get everything together
I would recommend riding the tram to the suns game anytime. We had a blast at the game. It was all of Luke brothers and sisters and my brother Jason and his wife were there too.
Luke would be really sad if I didn't post this picture of the suns dancers

We took the kids to Jeepers they had so much fun riding all the rides:)

One of the nights we went to Todd and Des house and had yummy Mexican food and Smores
Hanging out with the family

Gingerbread houses we actually did it this year for Christmas instead of in July. Doing better this year

We hope you all Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

The Holidays, Here we come...

Here is the project for this month at Home Depot. Wagons, they had cookies and once again the girls got to see Santa. They are going to know them oh so well.
Emily loves her daddy!!!
We had are ward party which was a lot of fun. Emily got to meet santa for the first time and lets just say she loved him. The minute they gave her a candy cane she got the biggest smile on her face. It was pretty funny.
They had a station where you could decorate cookies. Emily liked that too. Can you tell?

Aubrey enjoyed being able to frost her cookie she thought it was pretty cool. They also had the nativity that the kids performed and writing letters to the missionaries. Music, and a lot of visiting. I am excited that my sister and her family our in our ward now. We have had lots of fun with them.
All the boys played a fun game of football of course they wanted it to be tackle football. There was only a little blood and tears but they all survived.
I think Aubrey thinks that you have to pose for every picture and she seems to like to tilt her head. oh well she is still cute as ever.
The day after Thanksgiving we all went to my parents house and helped them put up there Christmas tree!!! The kids did such a great job.
They were very careful and took it very serious!!
This was our yummy meal before we all digged in. It was all very good!!!
And of course the Three musketeers gotta love them. HEAR COMES TROUBLE!!!

Wow these are really out of order this is proof that we had a home cooked meal. I was behind the camera I really did help.
We really enjoyed having all the famiy together all my brothers and sisters got to come. It has been a great holiday season so far and can't wait for it to continue.

Here comes the Bride....

All dressed in white...
My sweet little girl just turned four and now she is a bride oh how time flies. Aubrey has just loved dressing up in her wedding dress got to love 75% off Halloween costumes. Can't beat that!!

Aubrey had a great birthday this year. She had two parties one with Lukes family and my family the same weekend as Lukes. Than on her actual birthday she had more of my family come over to eat and have cake and ice cream. She loves being four all though at times she thinks she is so big she can do whatever she wants now. We will have to watch that.
Her yummy cupcakes she got to decorate!!! This was one of her presents she got from her Aunt. Her dress up box is getting more and more exciting these days!!! I am so grateful to have Aubrey in our family she really does bring lots of joy and can't wait for many more birthdays to share with her.
Home depot has the coolest thing for the kids the first Saturday of the month. You just have to sign your kids up and they get to make cool projects they get to take home. Aubrey did so good she even got to hammer the nails in. She has a cute little apron they gave her too. I think this will defiantly be something we do again.

Yes it's been 4mths, but we are alive!!!!

Well its been awhile and a very awesome cousin of mine named Marisa has been asking me for the past couple of days when I was going to update my blog. So here it is a bunch of random pictures from a wonderful summer. I will try to be better at this posting thing I guess I just figured that not many people read it anyways so this is for you Marisa, and all of the others that have been wanting to know whats going on in our livesHanging out with Trina and Deseree and below is the rest of the girls...Dinosaur day and Aubrey doing push ups with daddy.
Kalebs birthday party that was thoughts of fun.
Kelsi, Kayla, Shaylee and Aubrey at a princess slumber party. they had lots of fun.
During the summer Marc and Trina came down and we went up to the mountains and had a picnic.

hanging out!!!
We also went to the 24th of July celebration!!!

Fourth of July at aunt Becky's house they girls had a blast.

The girls love to dance this is one of the older vidoes they really know how to dance now. Emily really gets into. I will post later the updated version. She was still trying to get the hang of this walking thing. We also planted grass in the backyard this summer which turned out being so nice for the kids. We made trips to alpine Mesa and just really had fun relaxing and enjoying family.

As for now Luke is still substitute teaching and is doing online courses to get his teaching certificate. He has been subbing a lot which is nice.

Me I'm just doing the same old stuff nothing exciting.

Aubrey is almost 4 and is doing great learning her letters and sounds. She is growing up fast and can't wait to turn four.

Emily learned to walk finally at 17mths just in time for nursery. and got her first tooth at 15mths. She has kind of did everything a little later than most, but you wouldn't know now. She is all over the place and is really liking this walking thing.

Anyways we are all doing great, enjoying life still living at my grandma's but it's been nice for her as well as us. hopefully it wont take us this long next to post. Hope everyone else is doing good too. I know that there was many other things I did this summer just don't have cool pictures of them.
