Tori's 1st Birthday!

Tori attempting to dig into her cake! Not very successful, she had double ear infections on her birthday:(

Opening presents... she wasn't really into it. Still too young, but still so cute.

One of her new presents from nana:) She loved her new picnic basket.

Fire Station

A good friend of mine planned a trip for a bunch of us to take a tour of the fire station about a month or so ago. The boys had a great time as you can imagine. Garrison loved to sit in the drivers seat. The Fire Fighters were really nice and let all the kids play all over the fire engines, slide down the poles and they loved it. A fun time was had by all and it was great to catch up with so many good friends:)

Day at the Park

We have had some fun days at the park lately and Tori just loves her hat:)

Garrison has been loving throwing the balls with dad. They play "baseball". He loves it and it gets all his energy out:)

My adorable little baby girl! I absolutely love her personality and she just makes me so happy.

My super cute Kiddos!

I have always known that my kids were stink'n cute, but lately they been developing so fast and doing so many new things--they just become cuter and cuter everyday. I have some recent and random shots of the kids that I thought were just too cute not to share:)


I am a little late in posting pictures from Christmas. We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Garrison was so cute opening all his presents. Tori didn't really care, but Garrison helped her open her presents which he loved. We spent Christmas morning with just us and then later that day we spent time with my family as well as some of Jared's family. We had such a fun time visiting with our families. We have the best families ever! The kids made Christmas special this year, we are so blessed to have them in our lives.

We have had lots of changes happen in our family recently. Jared found out back in Sept. that he was going to get laid off. The good news is that Jared got a new job working for Ericsson as a Field Technician fixing cell sites and really seems to like it a lot. They gave him a brand new truck, a laptop and 3 cell phones!!! There are many ways to get a hold of him now... he he. Plus he is outside all the time and even gets to off road occasionally for work. He hates that a lot. j/k!

On a sadder note, Gavin will be leaving us and going to preschool beginning the first of the year. I have been taking care of Gavin since he was 7 months old and he is almost 3. I have really grown to love him like my own son and will be sad to see him go. I know it is for the best, so it is a bitter sweet feeling.

Our kids are wonderful!!! Garrison is talking up a storm and is developing so well. It is so much fun to see him change into a little boy. The things that entertain him are hilarious and we have such a good time hearing him laugh:) Tori is my sweet little social butterfly. If she is left alone she is just quiet or a little grunty, but the second you look at her or pay attention to her she just lights up. It is the sweetest thing in the world. She is starting to sit up on her own now, she is eating solids from a spoon FINALLY and we are loving every minute of it.

Today we had a family photo shoot and yes it was cold. We braved through it and thawed out the kiddos later. We had so many good pics that turned out and I will pick some of my favs to share on this blog. Enjoy!

Day at the pool

We went to the pool today and had a great time! Garrison loves playing in the water and would do it all day if I let him. I didn't think we were going to be there for very long so I didn't put any sunscreen on. OOPS!!! Got a little sunburned:) Had a great time though and enjoyed the sun!
