My little sister's wedding!!!

The beautiful bride and Groom.
BUURRRRR it was FREEZING cold!!! Camden and I snuggling to try and keep warm!

Family picture time.

My little sister Katie was married this past week to a wonderful guy named Tyrell Marchant! The sealing was wonderful and I am so happy for them! Although the day started out a bit rough, Katie found out that Tyrell had been throwing up all night and morning because of a stomach bug going around, so the sealing was pushed back a couple of hours, Katie was a bit emotional all morning, laughing and crying all at the same time, but Katie being the wonderful person she is still kept a positive attitude and asked Tyrell if he wanted to pushed the wedding to the next day, he being madly in love with her said no way and asked his dad for blessing to get better! So with the ceremony pushed back a couple of hours it gave him a little longer to get better and while during the sealing you could tell he had a rough morning, Katie and Tyrell looked absolutely stunning! It was a wonderful sealing and brought back so many memories for me when Nathaniel and I were sealed together forever a year and a half ago!

Visiting Santa Claus!

The other day I told my parents we HAD to take Camden to see Santa because it is his first Christmas...AND while Camden didn't really smile...he didn't scream either. I will say visiting Santa was a success :)

Just some pictures :)

Visiting Grandma Laurie

On Christmas Eve day Camden and I went to go visit my mom's grave (Laurie my mother in law passed away last year) and to go and bring her some flowers! It makes me very thankful to know that I will see her again and to feel her watching over us. What a blessing it is to have the Gospel in our lives and to have the blessing of being able to go to the temple, what a wonderful gift that is to us!


We have had such a wonderful Christmas! Thank you mom and dad for making the day so great even though I really miss Nathaniel. The day started at 5:30 A.M. (Thank you Little man for the early wake-up call...aka...scream until I get you out of your crib, l.o.l)!!! Camden wasn't to interested in unwrapping his presents but loved playing with them after I unwrapped them for him...still his favorite toy of the day...the dishwasher...of course!!!
Last night I got to watch Nathaniel open his presents on web-cam, that was a TON of fun to watch him and see his reaction, it makes me very thankful for the technology we have :)



The other day we had a lot of family over and my sister Melissa and her husband Andrew took Camden with them and the other kids to play in the play-room and about 10 minutes later they came out with this on Camden's head and they said that it was CRAZY back their with all the kids so they decided that Camden needed a helmet to protect his do they come up with this stuff!!!! (Camden is with his favorite aunt in this picture...Aunty Amanda!!!)


Camden and I are having a great time here in Utah visiting with family! Camden loves exploring Grandma and Grandpa's house and "helping" them unload the dishwasher! The only bad part has been the stomache bug that is being passed around, Camden was hit pretty bad by it and I dont think it helped that his 7th and 8th tooth decided to come in as well, but he seems to be getting better each day! (which makes for a happy Camden and mommy :)

My Dad took me to the movies to see Harry Potter (while my amazing mom watched Camden)...I liked it...but books are always better then movies, so I was a little disappointed!!! But it was still GREAT to go to the movies without worrying about Mr. Camden :)

Christmas tree hunting extravaganza

Grandpa found the perfect Camden sized tree!
So many trees to choose from!
The wagon Camden rode in on our walk out to the trees...he thoroughly enjoyed and sang and babbled the whole time!
Group Picture (left to right) Grandma, Camden, Jenna, Spencer, and me!!!

Last Friday we had a GREAT time going to Hunter's farm and picking out and chopping down a Christmas tree! It was my first time EVER choosing out a real tree and it was a BLAST, Camden had a great time as well...I think he enjoyed mommy saying "look I found the PERFECT tree" about a million times (what can I say there were A LOT of trees there)! There were actually so MANY trees there that it took us about 2 1/2 hours to choose our favorite...and even then we still ended up with two favorites, l.o.l :) We definently missed Nathaniel there BUT we are SO excited for next Christmas when he will be home...Do you think they have real christmas trees down in Texas, hum???
