christmas fun (part 2)

We went to Ethel M chocolate factory. They have a ton of lights outside, you can tour the factory, & get a sample of chocolate. It was pretty cold but the kids loved it!

The family

Papa & Scarlet

Drinking some hot chocolate. It tasted like you were just drinking melted chocolate.

Then we went to Sam's Town. We had already been but Carter really wanted to show his grandparents the water show. It was really cool & free!

Love this one of Carter! Scarlet never looks

Me & my boy

Yaya & Papa with the kids

Just the 3 of us. Scarlet just wanted to walk around & I guess Carter was over taking pictures.

It was pretty in their atrium

The best grandparents!


christmas fun (part 1)

Here is some of the fun we've been having. My whole family was at my parent's for Thanksgiving. We went & saw the live nativity at Tuacahn. Here are the grand kids except Scarlet.

My siblings, my mom really wanted this picture!
Love this one of my nieces!

That was fun!

When we were back in Vegas we went to Bass Pro shop. They always have some little fun Christmas things to do. Here are the kids having fun in a sleigh.

Love them!

I'm behind, this was a month ago. My dad was on his way down to California so he stopped by for a night. I had to work but Dan, dad, & the kids went to see the planes. Dan took Carter a couple years ago & I couldn't go then either. Maybe next year, they love it.

Next to the big tires.

I thought this was cool with the colors.

This is fun!

Love this one! Carter & his co-pilot!



The Friday before Halloween we went to our church party. When you walked in they had this cute little set up for pictures. Here is Waluigi & Belle, they are so cute!

Carter & Scarlet's pumpkins

Halloween night some families from our ward met up & had dinner in a pumpkin. Then we went around the neighborhood to trick or treat. It was a lot of fun!

Trick or treat!

scarlet is one

Our little princess turned one on the 22nd! Time goes by so much faster with your second child! My parents came down to celebrate. We went to lunch at Cafe Rio, then to the pumpkin patch, then home for presents & cake. I know a one year old doesn't really get it but I would say she had a fun day! Scarlet at one will take a couple steps, only drinks a 6 oz. bottle & usually doesn't finish it, loves to dance, doesn't care to much for baby food anymore, loves chocolate, throws herself back if shes mad, has 11 teeth, loves her blanket, & is a daddy's girl!

A baby Minnie Mouse party.

All set for cake.
Eating yogurt bites at Cafe Rio. Don't think she's ready for a pork burrito just yet.

Cute girl!

What's this big thing?!

I'm done!

Brother & sister

Love the next 2 pictures! A worker at the pumpkin patch was nice enough to blow bubbles so we could get some smiles.

Love these kids!

Enjoying the pumpkin patch!

My little cow & piggy

Her favorite toy was a little stroller to push with a baby in it. Thanks Yaya & Papa!

Big bro helping her out.

Happy 1st birthday!

Not sure who blew out the candle. I think it was Carter.

She just went for it & I knew she would! After grabbing a handful she started taking little pieces.

Happy Birthday Scarlet! We love you so much & we could not be happier that you are a part of our family!!
