Dad's Work Party

My dad had his work party on December 14th. Griff was going to meet us there but his work is in Orem and my dads party was at the hospital in Murray. There was a huge snow storm so Griff was not able to make it.. Darn it. But we still had fun. We had lots of yummy food and were able to see Santa!
Papa loves this girl!!!
Yay Santa!! Blakelee was spoiled this year and sat on Santa's lap 3 times this year.
It made me so happy to see my sweet girl on Santa's lap. I can not wait to see her face, when she is older, sitting on his lap!!! :) 
Merry Christmas!

Many Faces of Blakelee

Perfect Lips!!
Gonna be a Blondie!!
Big Blue Eyes.
She is the cutest little baby ever!! I love every single face she makes only a few months old and she has taken a very special place in our hearts. She is perfect in every way possible.

Baby Jae beeping Blake's nose. :)

Ginger Bread and Salt Dough

December 8th was a very eventful night of Christmas fun!! Our friends Steve and Lara came over to make gingerbread men and trains, drink hot coca, and watch Christmas movies!!
Here we go...
Blake's of course did not want to miss a party, just like her mommy!!! So she joined us in her high chair. She looks so BIG!!!!
Decorating was a blast. We had so much candy!
Mmm.. Frosting!
Coco motion!!! What a great invention :).
Wow they turned out so cute!!!
They slept over, SO glad Blake slept good that night so she didn't wake them up!!
In the morning we had breakfast and made tree ornaments!!
I wanted to get a hand and foot print of Blakelee, for some reason it was so funny trying to get her prints, she was so confused and had her toes and fingers all curled up because she did not want to get it done. We were finally able to get good prints, we made 3 hand prints one for us, and both the grandparents!!
Rolling the dough.
Steve wanted a print of his teeth... haha!!! Well... it back fired! It got stuck in his mouth and of course was nasty because it tasted like pure salt!! Ewww!! Sorry Steve hope the tooth brush and paste helped out.
The finished project!!!
They turned out so cute.
Very pleased with them :).
Thanks for such a fun weekend you guys!
Can't wait till next year we should do more fun activities like this!!

Dickens Festival

A few weeks ago the girls all went to the Dickens Festival. It is Down Town and only in town for a few weeks. When I was younger I used to Clog Dance here!! It was one of my most favorite traditions of the season. So we decided that we were going to have a fun afternoon walking around looking at the vendors and seeing all the fun Christmas Decorations.
Waiting in Line. It was VERY busy!!
Laryssa is the Ghost of Christmas... Something!! Haha not sure what one she is.
We took the girls to see Father Christmas. This Santa is amazing!!! He doesn't wear the normal Santa suite he wears Father Christmas attire!! He is so cute. But... the pictures were over $30 and you can't take your own pictures, Bummer!!
Waiting to see Father Christmas.
After a fun day we went back to my moms house and hung out. Blake's was such a good little girl!! She loved the whole day.
Love the Dickens Festival!!!
