We had the privilege of attending the baptism of this young man today. He looked very grown up and it was a special moment for him and his family. We were so happy to be there to witness it!

Time for a "late over" with these gals - lots of food, lots of laughing, lots of fun jammies. Friends are the best - and these girls are great friends.

It feels amazing to see my year in review albums lined up, neatly in a row. The memories contained in these albums are priceless.

This boy. We have to pinch ourselves that he's ours. He has been so good and such great company.

We are trying the "mom teaches the kids piano lessons" thing. It is always a challenge to teach my own children, but I am committed this time and so are the girls. Fingers crossed!

Have mercy, this herbal tea is good. White Chocolate Peppermint. I mean, come on - for real? It is amazing, and a new fave!

This gal surprised me by cleaning the kitchen for me. When I asked for a photo, this is what I got. She gets it from her father.

Time to declutter and reorganize! It always feels great. This time it's because we changed out the younger girls bedroom and they are now sharing a double bed.

If dogs could talk: "WHY?!?! .......your betrayal is complete."

Actually, he had an "accident" in the van while we were in the store and then managed to tromp through it and all over the seats. Arg. Think of this as time served.

It's over half way through January, but I have finally finished the cover page for my 2015 Project Life album. I love how it turned out and am so excited to see what this year brings!

Time for some official portraits of this little guy - I mean, I had to - just look at that face!

I had the young women over to the house to teach them how to make spring rolls. They did such a great job, I might just have to have them over to roll them for me every time I make them!

I'm glad someone is getting some rest after he kept us up last night!

We welcomed a new member to our family yesterday - his name is Aspen and he's a 6 month old Pomeranian. He is quickly getting to know our family and is going to have to learn the house rules - lesson number one: do your business outside!

Brynae's 13th birthday was so fun - the girls had facials and did their nails, and we played some fun games. This group of girls are way too fun. I think I still hear their insane laughter echoing through the house

Enjoyed taking in my nephew's basketball game while his school was playing in a tournament in town. He is a great team player - and a good ball handler. It was fun watching him!

It's official! I now have two teenagers in the house! Happy 13th to this fun loving, imaginative, smart, determined, thoughtful, hilarious girl. Our lives are so much richer having you in them. We love you so much and are incredibly proud of you. Love you, B!

My heart is full after watching Tamber perform in her Choral Music concert. Not only did she rock the singing, but she played piano for three of their songs and rocked that, too! I got emotional watching her, seeing her poise, and realizing what a beautiful, wonderful, amazing young lady she has grown into. I love her to the moon and back, and was beaming with pride over her tonight. Well done!

Another missionary transfer coming up! It is always a joy to have missionaries in our home, and as Lyndon serves as the ward mission leader, we see a lot of them! It was great having you serving in our ward, Elder Wilkes! Good luck in your next area!

Watching to make sure that miss B and the little girl she regularly babysits after school get into her house safely - sometimes those keys can be tricky and I don't want them stuck outside. B is really enjoying watching this little girl and having some money to save towards things she has her eye on - like a puppy!

Our first Sunday with our new meeting time of 1pm-4pm. I think it may be the first time ever, for us. It seems weird heading to church after lunch and not getting home until near supper time. It will take some getting used to!

It was about time for another family skating activity. This time BB and JJ were anxious to try out some fancy moves. Nice work, ladies!
