New Car!

We traded our Nissan Altima in for a 2008 Ford Escape and we love love love it! It handles so well on these Star Valley winter roads. Halle loves it too and loves being able to be up higher so she can see everything better. I am loving all the space in the back and it is so comfortable to drive. It is such a fun little family car!


We had a wonderful Christmas this year! It was so fun to be able to spend time with lots of family we don't get to see very often. Halle got way too spoiled but has been loving all her new toys! I forgot to charge my camera so I didn't get very many pictures but here is Halle with her Santa present:

We got her this little stuffed puppy that barks and wiggles its tail and as soon as Halle saw it she started cuddling with it and giving it hugs, it was so cute! She loves it!

Thanksgiving Break

We have been enjoying our Thanksgiving break to the fullest! Kim got lots of time off work and it has been so much fun being able to spend so much time together as a family! We had thanksgiving dinner at Mom and Dad's house and dinner was awesome, as always, thanks Mom! Yesterday we went up south end and got our Christmas tree and decorated it last night! Halle loves all the lights and ornaments. She keeps pointing at the tree with a big cheesy grin and just giggles.:) Tonight we are going to the parade of lights, I'm pretty excited to see Halle's reaction to that! We hope everyone had a great Holiday!

Way To Go Kim!

Kim has been way into photography lately and has been having so much fun with his Dad's camera. He recently entered some of his work in a few contests. One of the contests was through Thriftway in Afton and he was one of the winners! Thriftway recently remodeled their interior and picked several photos that people have taken from around the Valley and one of Kim's photos was picked to be hung. Nice job, sweetheart! Keep up the good work! I'm proud of you and I am sure your Dad is too! :)

Little Helper

Halle Ann loves "helping" me do the laundry. She likes to climb in the dryer so she can get all the clothes out so she can put them in the laundry basket. What a good little helper I have!

This is when she realizes she isn't quite sure how to climb back out! :)

One of Halle's obsessions is books. She loves books! This morning I put her in the living room to play with her books so I could get a few things done. When I went to check on her she was sound asleep on her books. So sweet:)

Silly Hal

Today while playing in the kitchen Halle suddenly became unusually quiet so I went to go see what she was up to. I found her like this, just hanging out in one of my casserole pans....it doesn't take much to entertain this little one!

Happy Halloween!

We hope everyone had a fun Halloween! We sure did! We carved our pumpkin, baked pumpkin seeds, ordered pizza, watched movies, and passsed out candy to all the trick or treaters! Halle was scared of the pumpkin at first but she warmed up to it eventually:)

Precious Power of Prayer

This week my primary lesson is on prayer so it has given me lots of time to ponder on what a beautiful blessing it is to be able to speak with my Father in Heaven anytime I need. I decided that I would try teaching Halle about personal prayers for the first time, she always has family prayer with us, but I have never had personal prayer with her. So this week before I put her to bed, I showed her how to kneel by her crib and I held her close as I said a simple little prayer talking as if it were Halle instead of me to show her what to say if she were to say the prayer. Instantly she stopped her wiggling and just looked at my face with the most precious peaceful look on her face. When the prayer was done I layed her in her crib and she continued to look so peaceful. I told her that I loved her and I left the room. Usually, she cries for a few minutes before she falls asleep, but not that night. She didn't make a single noise and when I went to check on her a few minutes later, she was peacefully sleeping. It brings tears to my eyes to think about how lucky I am to have such a wonderful little example in my home of being sensitive to the spirit. Even if she didn't understand all the words I was saying, she still was able to recognize the spirit and the peace that it brings. It is no wonder that little children are heirs to the celestial kingdom.
