What a great year we are having!!!! Here is a glimpse of Ellie's first birthday!!! We had so much fun!!

Girls day out!!! I love any time with the girls!! We love traveling together.
Adam and Muy are a joy to have around and are a nice looking couple too.
Fun times in Deer Valley. We had a couple of Staycations to the Regent and then the Montage!! Of course that always includes a brunch at Stein Erickson Lodge!!! We can't go with out the little ones!!
Cute little Hunsaker family are the highlights where ever they are.

Britt, the girls and I had a lot of fun at the State fair. However the birds are not a favorite with Evie or Britt.
Ad and Muy are the movie gurus. This was just after Paranormal activity and Daniel showed up unexpectidly. It was a nice surprise but a little erie as well.

We had a great trip to San Fransisco with Meg and Thayne. We managed to fit in a Giants game, spend some time with Garth and family. The Bay Bridge is always spectacular. Are they a darling couple or what!!
These are the best boys!!!! Having a snack at Grandma D's.
I'm not sure how many times we have been on Tea Cups this year, but it has been a lot. More to come as well.
The trip to China was fantastic and I am grateful to have been with these four awesome men. They were delightful to travel with.

This scene is almost everyday!!! Grandpa Mark has found the new loves of his life and they feel the same way about him. Life is Good. I am grateful for my family and friends.

Well Ellie B had her first birthday party!!! She was as cute as ever and even crawled a bit.
Old McDonald is one of her favorite songs and books. She can say E-I-E-I-O!!! So cute. Britt and I had a lot of fun making soups and cupcakes and decorating in a farm theme.

These cupcakes were delicious and moist!!! (for Bryan)
Grandma Lisa and Aunt Brittany. Ellie loves Grandma Lisa.
Both girls like their Grandpa's best, and I have to say both Grandpa's like the girls the best.
All the rest of us know where we stand.
The uncles(Daniel and Stephen) gave cute BYU attire. This made Mommy happy. Big BYU fans!!!!
Ellie approached eating her birthday cake as she does everything else. Very slow and methodical. Carefully!!!!

This is pretty fun!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY--LITTLE ELLIE

Fun with myPhone!!

Yay, we all got our iphones in October and I have been practicing the picture taking with the camera. Some images are from the regular camera and some from Camera plus, which I love!!!Beautiful Phone!!! Taken with my Canon Camera.
Taken after a morning walk of the front door. With camera plus.
Ready for cooking class. Regular camera.
Obviously one of my first attempts and only picture of our Witches Breakfast outing. Don't the great grandmas look scary?????????
Lunch date with Britt and the girls after Evie's first haircut at Cookie Cutters. We had lunch at Pago on 9th and 9th. Delicious, but not kid friendly. Luckily Grandpa showed up to help.

Our Fireplace when working. Now fixed!!!!!
Cute and wonderful boys---says it all. Also not my best effort as they are adorable and not blurry in real life.

Halloween ReCap ---from the last four years!!!!

I love Halloween!!! And we really celebrated this year!!! Britt and I took the girls to Mickey's Halloween party in Disneyland!!! It was a blast!!! There are several of these ghost Mickey's around the park, and you get to Trick or Treat at them. They set up about 5 candy stations at each on. Evie couldn't get enough.
We also went to Gardner Village a couple of times. We try to make it every year!!! We had a lot of fun. Here are a couple of pictures. Britt made a beautiful witch and Evie gets the cutest witch award!!! The great-grandmas were scary witches. I'll post a pic of them later. Ellie couldn't take her eyes off the witches so it's almost impossible to get a picture of her cute face. She was fascinated.
Britt and Evie from last year!!!!

Halloween Pumpkin carving 2008!!! Bets is the cutest!!!
Evie and her pumpkin in 2009
Trunk or Treat 2008

Is Halloween getting bigger every year?????? Meg's had a huge party at our house and there are Halloween Teas everywhere, and Trunk or Treat parties!!!!! Anyway, It's a ton of fun!!! Hope yours was good too!!!
