Christmas 2011

These are from a last minute shoot with my friend Brittnay. She is a wonderful photographer. She shot for only 15mins and got a ton of cute pictures. My kids love her so that helps. I was so excited when I saw them.
I just love these faces.

Saturday, December 10, 2011


It looks like they just woke up. Well they did. Don't ask me why but our ward does a Christmas breakfast AT 8AM so they literally just woke up.
Jadie wasn't having it.

Owen was starring at the girls with the candy canes.

Nahlia still falls asleep on the chair after spinning.
Nahlia took this but I don't have a lot of pictures with me in them so its a keeper.

2011 Thanksgiving

Back in Utah for Thanksgiving. This time its extra special with a new family member. Owen's first trip to Utah.
Camp fire with Grandpa.
Nahlia loves going to grandpa's house (with the horses) because there is so much to explore in his backyard.
While Nate was at the game the kids and I met Kyle and Angela at temple square. We love out Autie and Uncle.
Some where I hadn't been yet with a beautiful view.
I hope this isn't disrespectful but when we visited The Resurrected Christ Nahlia wanted to take a picture with him copying him. I was so funny and I'm glad she wasn't the only kid in there at the time. What am I suppose it say "Don't be like Jesus."   
Dillon and Nahlia coloring. Nahlia was pouting at this time I think because the picture Dillon drew for her she liked better than the one she did for him and that made her upset.
Owen was meeting the Stewart side for the first time this trip.
Oldest cousin Johnny. He loved holding Owen all by him self.
Cousin Charlie who is the sweetest with him. Helping and loving him they whole time.
Loved grandma for getting him some food.
Meeting Grandpa Dean whom he is named after.
Bye bye kiss from grandma.

3 Months

I just love that face and those ears.
So Osie has gasie, big time. I feel so bad for him. It's pretty much the only time he cries. I've tried 3 or 4 different gas drops but they don't help long term so I'm cutting out CHOCOLATE. If you know me at all that is a huge deal. On top of that I picked the worst day to start. Halloween. (Update - The not eating chocolate helped quite a bit but he was still struggling with it, not sleeping. So also added to the no no list was milk/dairy, onion, broccoli and spinach.) 
His last apt was 10/27. 23.25 in and 13.14lbs

I couldn't pick a caption for this pic.
 Are YOU looking at ME?  or
How you do'n?

2011 Halloween

Halloween. One of Nathan's favorite holidays. This year Nahlia was Jessie and Owen was a Jazz basketball player.  She got to wear her costume a few different nights so it actually made it worth putting time or money into it or just time because I made it and it didn't cost very much.
With the Malone kids. Whenever Maddy the oldest is around Nahlia clings to her. Maddy took her through the hunted house and when they came out the end she was carrying Nahlia.

Pinata time. Nathan was so proud she knocked it off.
 Brittany, Nahlia's favorite teacher, hosted the party.
 Madelyn and Nahlia at the ward party cake walk. I have a picture of them eating cupcakes from last year as well.
 The CUTEST bubble bee in the world. Jadie.
 Halloween nigh she wanted to wear make up and got all vogue on me.

 The only picture of Owen. Don't think I'm neglectful its just really hard to take a picture holding the baby and trying to get the baby in the picture. He had a sweat band as well and it was super cute with his converse.
 Trick or Treat group
Erin, Mason, Nahlia, Madelyn, Kayden, Jayden, Kyler.
 A little boy she followed around calling Woody until he finally said said he wasn't Woody he was just a cowboy.

Laura's Homecoming

Sooo excited for Laura to come home. I missed her more than anything before. I was hard not taking to her. She went from living in my house to only emails once a week. So stinky. Nahlia was 1 and half when she left and she hasn't met Owen so I'm very excited for her to see how my family has grown. It was a little scary to be on the plane with two kids by myself for the first time but they did so wonderful. Nathan was able to wait with us at the gate and then they both slept most of the flight. It was wonderful. We got in the night before she came home so we could be there for when she got off the plane. She fly into the Santa Rosa airport which was really cool because you can be outside next to the runway. It was so exciting to be there. No pics hopefully I'll get some.
Nahlia's Santa Rosa activity is ice skating. She's getting much better at it. She needs a helmet because I just get so nervous when she's going fast.
Owen's just a month old. So little. 

I don't know what was going on with her hair that day but she looks sooo cute.

Cuddle with PaPa time.

Austin and Morgan so cute. Love our cousins so so so much. There's nothing like cousins. We headed for Sacramento on Friday to do a temple session and to see Austin and Beau play football. 
Nahlia loves Morgan so much.

On our way home we stopped at the beach. It was a little cold but that doesn't stop Nahlia from getting wet. I had to literally drag her away covered head to toe in sand.
So happy to have you home Auntie.

Love this picture. The beach is her heaven.

Not a very good picture but I don't have very many pics with both my kids and I together. Love them.

Delayed flight.
When the flight finally started boarding both kids decided to poop. What great timing.
