Jaylin is 5!!!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful princess Jaylin. She turned 5 in January. I can't believe how big and grown up she is. She wanted french toast for her birthday breakfast so daddy got up early to make it for her and the rest of the family. Jaylin was so surprised when she came downstairs and saw her brand new princess bike that she had been wanting since her 4th birthday. She also got a birthday card from Nanny (Ashley's mom) and it had a princess crown in it that she couldn't wait to wear. This year Jaylin wanted to go to Trafalga for her birthday, they have rides and a rock climbing wall, put put golf, and laser tag. It was a lot of fun. She had a lot of her friends come to celebrate with her and of course it was princess themed so I went all out on her cake and ordered a special disney princess cake that she loved!!! I was a fun and special birthday for her. This post is a picture overload post. hope you enjoy!

Christmas 2010

I know this post is way past due. This Christmas was a lot of fun for our family. My parents stayed with us this Christmas which made it extra special. I think they had a lot of fun watching the kids open all their presents and enjoyed opening a few surprise presents themselves. We had a ward Christmas party with hot chocolate and lots of desserts. We went to my sisters house on Christmas Eve for our family annual Christmas party and ate great food, read the Christmas Story, sang songs, and ... Santa came with presents for the little kids. When we got home the "elves" had brought early presents to us, they were jammies for everyone. David was trying to figure out how the elves got to our house to bring the jammies. It was really cool, he was so into the "Magic" of Christmas this year. We had a buffet to munch on all day, watched movies, played games and just hung out together as a family.
