We Had A White Christmas!

I thought the tree was especially pretty this year. I set a goal to not get stressed and caught up in the last minute rush. What can I say, I tried and was successful to a degree. It was a fun day.

Even though it melted before noon, we woke up to enough snow to make the ground white, it was exciting considering we live in the desert and was a contrast to the smoltering summers we get. We are hoping that we have a few more days of this white stuff this Winter.

Becca and her friend Devon were very serious about getting Becca's new toaster oven working. Too funny!

Hanna got dress up princess clothes from Grandma and Grandpa Nebeker. She loved the high heels the best, they made alot of noise on the wood floors, very loud!

This is Oreo, Nikki's friend Jeff was sweet enough to give her a kitten for Christmas. Hmmm, no comment! He's a cute kitty, the grandkids love him and he follows Nikki everywhere.

My Grandkids Are Cuter Than Yours!

It's not easy to get all the kids together. I was determined to get pictures of the Grandkids this Christmas. I had no luck finding anyone who would be able to take them so with the help of Scott and Tyler we set up a makeshift photo studio in my dining room. Scott took the pictures, Tyler helped me with the backdrops and I did the posing. It was a blast, me and all the parents screamed and shook toys to get the kids to smile. The poor kids probably thought we were all crazy. I am proud that we were able to get quite a few really good photos. I seriously think maybe I'll just take all the pictures in the future. Check them out!

All four - Kylie, Tanner, Kayla and Hanna. Tanner did an awesome job considering Hanna was sitting on him.

I am speechless, they are so dang cute!

We had so many people yelling at them to smile, poor kids didn't know where to look.

I am sure that these girls are having an important conversation, looks like something very serious.

We needed all the help we could get keeping these girls looking picture perfect. Mike helped hang on to them.

The sweetness! These are the best ever!

Tanner and Kylie are the best of friends, when one of them walks into the room the other goes crazy. Often the shrills of joy get a little loud! I love this picture of Tanner giving Kylie a kiss. She loves it, aww so sweet!

The Weather Outside was Frightful!

A true Winter Wonderland! We had a couple of days of beautiful white glistening snow. It was great while it lasted but melted way too fast.
We are dreaming of a "White Christmas"

This silhouette is Nikki trying to catch a snowflake on her tougue. I think she actually did it!

Our friend Frosty, the poor guy was missing his eyes and mouth the next morning.

My Greatest Blessings call me Grandma!

We visited Scott and Jaimie last weekend. We all went to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional. It was awesome! I love this picture of Hanna and Scott. She's got her Daddy wrapped around her little finger. Come to think about it, she's got her Grandma Neb wrapped too.

Look at that beautiful face, makes you want to just melt! Unfortunantely I didn't get any good pictures of Tanner, darn, maybe next time.

Kylie and Grandpa. She had a blast playing in the leaves. Good thing our neighbor has a big tree with lots of leaves. Urghhhhh

She was laughing so hard, Craig suggested that we don't clean up the leaves so she'll have them to play in. I don't think so!

She is such a poser! She loves the camera.

I love this picture. That's my Kylie!

Kayla - Get a load of those beautiful big brown eyes.

And her big smile!

This is thanksgiving, Kylie is such an awesome big sister. They looked so cute with their matching outfits and hairbands.

Another Kylie pose.

Happy Birthday Tyler!

On November 30th Tyler turned 19! He's such a fun person, he always makes his Mom smile. Wouldn't it be cool if you could go back in time and give the little kindergarten kid a big hug and kiss again. It's hard to believe how fast time goes.

All ready for his first formal dance. He's so handsome!

On the way up the Materhorn at Disneyland. Nikki looks a little nervous, especially with Tyler joking and screaming the whole time.

So happy to have his own car.

Okay he is gonna hate this picture. He was on his way to youth conference. It was a pioneer trek. He was a good sport. I think he looks more like a plig than a pioneer. Too funny!

I want this kid back! Where did he go?

This is the kindergarten kid I mentioned at the top of this post. Can you blame me? I want one of those sweet hugs and kisses again!

Last Friday morning Scott texted me to say "I have a surprise for you". I replied with, "what is it", he said, "I have to show you". Well that was a little frustrating so I asked him to take a picture and send it to me. To my complete surprise he sent me a picture of himself standing in front of his in-laws house (about 3 miles away). A surprise visit from my kids! As Tanner would say "How cool is that" That night was our neighborhood annual halloween party. I was the luckiest Grandma on the block!

Hanna the beautiful bumble bee

Kylie was such a cute pink princess

Kayla was a happy flower

Hanna was a bumblebee and Tanner was a Dinosaur

Scary dinosaur

The Pumpkin Patch

We were able to take Mike, Tammy and the girls to the Pumpkin Patch in Washington, UT. Kylie had fun picking out her pumpkin. She was Grandpa's buddy which made his day!

This was the one she wanted. She carried it to the tractor that gave us a ride back to the farm.

I just love this picture, Kylie and her pumpkin.

Here's Kayla, the picture is a little blurry but it's the best one I got of her. She turned her head everytime I pointed my camera at her.

Grandpa's girl! This is what it's all about!

The Dinosaur Museum and grocery store pumpkins.

Last weekend we were able to go visit Scott and Jaimie and the grandkids! We had so much fun. The plan was to go to the pumpkin patch and get pumpkins but the weather didn't cooperate. It rained all day. We ended up getting pumpkins from the grocery store but Tanner and Hanna didn't mind. What good sports!

We had to stop on the way to pick up Nikki she had a race in Cedar City. Her friend Cory from Mapleton was there, Craig had to stick his face into the picture. I thought it was cute.

We went to the Dinosaur Museum. We watched a 3D movie about dinosaurs. Doesn't Jaimie and Hanna look classy in their glasses. Hanna kept them on for the entire movie.

Tyler also kept his glasses on for the entire movie ha,ha. It was fun.

This shark looked so real coming out of the wall. Scott and Tyler couldn't resist being goofy for the camera.

Waiting for the movie to start. Hanna loved the popcorn.
