Everybody I'm 3!

So Bella Boo had her Third birthday on Jan. 6th and we were in Utah. My mom and her cousins had such a cute party for her! She would just start singing "Happy Birthday" to herself and we would have to join in, it was so cute! She even said her prayer that night and included how thankful she was for her happy birthday.

I had promised her a party with a couple of friends earlier before I knew we were going to Utah so last week I attempted a little party! I don't know how you all do it. I just don't think think I am made to throw kids parties...Thanks for everybody that came and participated in my half-hearted event:)

Bella wanted a purple Carebear cake! What the...I don't bake but I promised her the cake. Sam laughed and wished me good luck as he left that day to go take a bunch of tests for school. But I DID IT! With my frosting coach, Heidi cheering me on!(Thanks)!
Here are some pics...

The Carebear..I know it wouldn't win any prizes but it resembles a bear.

I think she loved it or at least the frosting!

Oshyn, Kara, and Bella

Sohia partied hard too!

Christmas Fun!!

Wow, the holidays are always filled with great memories and this year was no exception! We went all over and traveled to see friends and family. Bella also had a Birthday but I will post about that on with the show.

First we had a great Christmas eve and day at Sam's parent house(his sis and bro were also in town). We made gingerbread houses and of course to Bella's surprise Santa really did fill her stocking!

Then we visited our friends from Hawaii, the Barneys, it is so fun to catch up and reminicse(spelling?). They have the two cutest kids ever!

Next we drove three hours up to visit my Uncle in Chico for a few days! It was so relaxing and as always they cook the yummiest food ever(like sushi & crab)!

For New Years we went back up to the Joneses...and then the girls and I flew to Utah to spend a week with my family and Bella's cousins! So much fun to go sledding, it was Bella's first time and she LOVED it! Papa played pollypockets with Bella for hours, my mom took all the little ones to thrift shops and my sisters and I just got to hang out. I miss them already! I'll post pics from Utah later too.
