Polar express day at Pre School...

This time of year is always SO much fun, {busy too} buddy our 'elf on a shelf' showed 
up one morning with Christmas jammies for the kids!!  

It worked out perfect because Ivy had Polar Express day at her pre school that day.  
She was so excited to wear her new Christmas jammies to school.
Thanks Buddy!

after Ivy's school party we had cute little performances from Olivia's Company team at the Vibe.  
It was so fun to see what they've been working on and i can't wait for competition time now!  
Olivia did awesome!  Ivy's was the following day and she did great.  I ended up video-ing
 her dance so no pictures of that.  boo! 

christmas program at ivy's preschool.

Ivy has the cutest teacher and cutest pre school EVER! love this place. 
She had her cute little Christmas concert and was super shy while kids were singing 
their christmas songs.  Her teacher was dressed as Mrs. Clause and Ivy loved seeing her dressed up.

They had tons of fun crafts for the kids and Santa was there too.  It was so stinking cute.
love this time of year...

Ivy is the top right {not singing} haha!
i thought for sure she would be my little performer. 

My Jr. high car pool...

...consists of all boys and one beautiful girl {who missed this day because she was sick, sorry tash} 
I loved surprising them on the day i was driving with the one & only 'Witney Carson' haha!!  

My poor Witney!  haha  she had no idea what she was in for on this super snowy day.  I told her i was coming by in 5 minutes to show her off at Boston's school.  His friends would DIE to see her! ha
They all thought that was so cool.  I had to document this. 

Thanks my cute witters for being a good sport.  Now boston is selling off some stuff 
that she signed for his friends. Some of these boys are obsessed with her! ha  

8 is great... baptism day.

It was a perfect day for a baptism... 12/12/12!  Definitely a day they will never forget!
Cory did an amazing job, and the spirit was very strong.  The Program was wonderful 
and i loved how everyone came to support these cuties.  We have some wonderful
 friends & family who helped make this day just perfect!

Grandma marlene and Papa joe came out from california to see these two get 
baptized.  It's so great to have so much support.  I wish i had a picture of 
all who were there.  It was filled with everyone who we love and it was 
such a great feeling to have all these wonderful people there.

This date is not only awesome because of it being 12/12/12 but Boston was also baptized on 
7/7/07!  {we think it's a cool thing ::wink::}  

We were lucky enough to have Great Grandparents there as well... Grandpa and Grandma Hansen.
{Cory's grandparents} 

 Grandma marlene and Fuzzy wuzzy {the twins nickname for papa joe! ha}

Nana & Papa Taylor

David & Lauren were champs!  Not only did they have college finals they were dealiong with, but they played the piano and Lauren gave the talk on the Holy Ghost!  We Adore these two! 

We ate at JCW's {the twins pick} and then went home to eat some cake!  my friend made 
this darling scripture cake!!  
it was the perfect ending to the perfect day!  
love my babies!!

Happy Birthday to my little 8 year olds...

My cute little angel babies are eight!  Crazy how fast time goes by.   
We had a simple and fabulous birthday!  I talked the twins into getting a new i pod touch instead 
of a birthday party!  It wasn't very hard to convince them.  When they woke up we had a 
yummy crepe breakfast and sang 'happy birthday' before they headed off to school!  

When they got home, it had just snowed all night so they were excited to get out and play in it.  
Since they are now 8 they were start scouts and activity days.  Hayes had his very 
first day of Scouts, he told me this was the BEST Day of his life! haha  

my handsome little "Wolf" scout!

When our dad got home, we opened presents and then headed off to their dinner of choice... "Tepanyaki"  

we went with grandma marlene, papa joe and the carson's.  The kids Love Tepanyaki and even our
chef made a big deal about their birthday.  He even made a heart out of the friend rice & they caught the shrimp in their mouth.they were spoiled!  We loved at the end when they  
 all come and sing "shake your booty, shake shake your booty" 
they had a fabulous birthday!   

Christmas lights at Thanksgiving Point

We can't believe we have never been to see the Holiday lights at Thanksgiving point. They 
were so fun.  We went with our friends the Horsley's to see the live nativity in alpine and their 
was a 2 hr wait! yikes.   So we decided to go check out the lights and Reindeer instead.

We ended up getting some hot cocoa/cider and took a ride through the lights on a horse
drawn carraige!  It was so much fun!

happy birthday to this handsome guy...

Sometimes december can be one crazy month, with 3 birthdays in our family along
with Christmas parties, and Christmas concerts etc.  I try to make the birthday's 
as special as i can.   
Cory is easy to celebrate, he makes life easy.  He always says "the simpler the better"  
he is such a rock to our family, he brings such peace into our sometimes 
crazy lifestyle, and i love that about him. 

My kids all know that they have the best dad in the world.  He is such a great example
of what a father and husband should be.  so i pretty much scored in the 
husband department. 

happy birthday cory!  41years old and counting. ha! 
all he wanted was his favorite dutch oven peach cobbler and a spaghetti dinner! 

Baptism pictures...

Two of my Uber Talented friends took some of the cutest pictures of my twins.
I die when i see these, they are so perfect.   

The first photo shoot was with Treasurelayne Photography at Saltair on the Salt Flats, 
they turned out so awesome.  Then we did an indoor session to try out some of 
Crimson Lily Photography's  newbackdrops and again... so perfect!  

Hayes was super mad at me on the 2nd photo shoot.  He said
 "mom's take way too many pictures!" 
you would never know he was super crabby at me. haha
