Christmas Time

As Christmas gets near, I get more excited. This is not Driggs first christmas, but it feels exciting because we can start our family traditions, and he enjoys them more . We have been having a great
December. We went downtown as a family a couple weekends ago. We went to gateway, shopped, ate dinner, then took trax down to see the lights. It was a perfect night! The weather was great and Driggs was such a content boy. He said "WOW" at every tree with lights on it (which is every tree) We have had fun getting Christmas ready.. and have actually enjoyed shopping with everyone else!

We are thankful for the birth of our savior, and the great sacrifice that he gave for us. I am grateful that I get to spend eternity with my family and that we are given the blessing to enjoy Christmas seasons! I wish that all year round had the same special feelings that Christmas does. I am sure that we enjoy it even more because it only comes once a year!

Thanksgiving Week

I did not take any pictures on thanksgiving day (dang) I forgot! We had such a wonderful thanksgiving this year, and are so thankful. I am thankful for my family and friends, a job that I love, Rob and Driggs for making me so happy, and the things that surround us every day.

Driggs learned that he can get out of Gus' dog door, he was just throwing everything out of it, and I guess thought to throw himself out.

Driggs got his new JAZZ jersey... do you think he likes it? What a cheese.
Thanksgiving we had two wonderful dinners, an early one at Jan's and then we went to my grandma's after. We left for St. George that night, and talked Megan and Aaron into coming. We had a fun weekend and Driggs got lots of attention. He was cuddly at this point of Aaron holding him. I love it when they cuddle, even if its not me!

A little past due~

Driggs is almost 14 months old, but I wanted to wait until we got his one year pictures done to do his one year post.

The year has flown by...seriously. It has been the best year. Driggs has been the best boy. He sleeps great, eats great, is happy, and is just a joy for our entire family. I love him beyond words can describe. It is crazy the love you can have for someone. He has grown so much and it is so much fun to watch him learn new things everyday. Their brains amaze me, how one day they just "get it"
He is starting to say words, makes sounds when he plays with anything with wheels, can take two or so steps, loves to dance, and loves attention. He is pretty chessy!
We love our little boy and can't wait for all the other milestones we get to enjoy!

Fall is in the Air

It is kind of sad to see the sun leaving us.. We will miss being outside all the time. I do love fall, the holidays that it brings, and the scenery. We ended our nice warm summer in Lake Powell. Driggs had such a great time, and I could not have asked him to be better. He loved being with all his cousins.

We had an awesome beach, and the kids would play out there all day.

He loved riding the jet ski, and even more than that he loved the tube. He would be so sad when we would stop. I think I laughed more than all the kids on it with us.
He loved all the meals.. Fruit, donuts, muffins, more fruit!! He loves to eat.. yet he is still so small.
We have been appreciating the cooler weather, we went up to brighton to walk around the lake and have a picnic. This is our favorite!
The kids insisted on riding in the same stroller, even though Mindi had her brand new sweet double stroller!
Random picture but Driggs loves to help me clean! He is such a great helper:)
Our fall has been filled with football games.. and what is the best way to get through the games?

We had a wonderful summer, it goes by way to fast. Driggs is already 13 months, becoming a "big boy"and it's so much fun, but so sad how fast it goes!!!

It's my Party!!

We had Driggs birthday party last week. He turns one this Sat. but we had his party early!!
It was so much fun, and we are so thankful to everyone who came.
My cousin Megan made these cute invitations.. we had a balloon "pop"theme

We made some cute balloon birthday cakes.. Driggs got the yellow one all to himself.

Getting ready to Dig into his cake... he looks a little interested?
He demolished his cake... he got a little help with the messy face though.

He got adorable things, and we are so lucky to be able to share this party with such a special boy!

Jackson Hole

Last weekend we went to Jackson Hole with Rob's family. Marty and Karli could not make it, but Lauryn and Bridger came with us. Driggs was in heaven the whole time with kids everywhere to play with. As you can tell, he loves to give kisses. This night he and Lauryn were playing with his truck, and he kept giving her the biggest kisses. It was so funny and she was definitely a trooper getting so slobbery.

He is walking against everything now. He thinks he is pretty cool because this is a "big boy" thing to do.

Friday we went to the park and played. Walked around town square, went on the alpine slide, and that night went to a chuck wagon dinner. It was such a fun night. They took us up the mountain in wagons, and the horses were Driggs favorite thing. He thought they were pretty sweet. We then ate dinner and they did a little show.
I love these cutouts. I think they are hilarious.

I could not resist this headband. Driggs as a little COWGIRL? He would be a pretty cute girl to.

Driggs turns one in a week and a half, and I am going through a little bit of denial. He was always so little. I bought him some Jammies a while ago that were 12 month thinking he could wear them this fall, and they pretty much fit him now. Normal... yes of course.. but for my baby I feel like he should still be in 6 month clothes! He is growing and that is amazing. We love him to pieces.

Beachin it up

The past couple of months, Driggs has had many firsts!! It been a busy summer, but that's how we like it!

Driggs went on the boat for the FIRST time! I can't believe it took so long. He actually liked it a lot, and he did great with his life jacket, even though it makes his face so smooched.

We went to Liberty park, and he went on his FIRST carousel ride!

He got his FIRST "pool" (don't be confused by this term, it's more like a giant floaty)
He LOVES the water, and he will splash like this for an hour.

We went on our FIRST of many trips to San Diego as a family. He loved playing with his cousins all day, and thought they were the most entertaining thing.

FIRST time in the sand
He loved it! He loved to put it in his mouth, who doesn't?

We would then go to the pool and he would splash forever! He wore himself right out everyday.

We went for our 16th year down to Newport for the 4th of July! It's so busy there, it makes it so fun! It's great to get to see all of my cousins and the kids!

Beach naps are the best!

FIRST 4th of JULY!!!
(the ony picture I got that day, notice his jammies are red,white and blue)

We went to LA one day to hang out, then that night went to Santa Monica Pier to play games and ride the rides. It was really fun there.
