Happy New Year!

So it has been a really long time since I posted anything! Sorry! I am a blog slacker! Anyway, I think I have now posted every detail of our lives since October... so ENJOY!

It has been another good year, but once again it is SO good to have it behind us! This past year our little family has grown in so many ways.
Landon turned 3, started preschool, which he loves, went to Disneyland for his first time, and played hard all day every day.
Brett FINALLY after a lot of hard work got on full time with the Lehi Fire Department. He absolutly loves it. It occupies alot of his time. He is so passionate about it. I am grateful he loves his job!
I FINALLY finished nursing school, and am enjoying playing with my boys. (although I need to get my butt in gear and take boards still.) It's a new year though! I have so many goals for this year! I am excited to get cracking on them!

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning was so fun! Santa was good to us this year, and brought us all what we wanted! It was so fun just being able to watch Landon open his presents from Santa this year! We took our time and played, then opened some presents, then played some more. We eventually dragged Landon away from his presents and went to Grandma Garretts house, where we opened presents from Bretts family. They were too good to us! Bretts mom basically does Christmas for her whole side of the family now that Grandma Garrett is getting older. She put alot of time and effort into making Christmas wonderful. WE LOVE YOU LAURIE! Then last but not least we headed over to my parents house for a third round! The presents they get us are always so thoughtful and fun! We have such wonderful families and we are so grateful that we could be so close to all our family for the Holidays. It truley is a blessing!

Landons Preschool Christmas performance.

Landon was so cute at his preschool Christmas performance! He did the actions and knew the words! It was so cute! I think Grandpa Steve and Grandmas Laurie were glad they didn't miss out!

The Tabernacle Choir and Little America

The temple was absolutly gorgeous that morning!
Our cute Fraser Family!

Landon ready to go in his Sunday best!

Every year all of Bretts side of the family go to hear the Tabernacle Choir and then to brunch at Little America on the Sunday before Chirstmas. It was fun this year. Brett and I sat with Landon, Lucy and Hyrum in the "quiet room" and let Justin and Lisa enjoy the choir for real. All the kids were so good! Land and Hy were leading the choir the whole time, meanwhile Lucy was passing out treats to them. Kept everyone happy! I have to say we had the cutest kids there! After that we did the annual stuffing oursleves till we wanted to barf at Little America. The kids even got to see Santa! All in all, it was worth getting dressed up for.

Christmas Time

I was so excited for Christmas this year, more excited than I ever even remember being. I started listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween. I don't know what made this year better than all the others, maybe just the fact that Landon is really starting to understand it all. Anyway Brett let me put up Christmas the very 1st week in December. He even put up the lights on the house for me and did an awesome job! Anyway I love Christmas!

Isn't the look in Landons eyes priceless?

Thanks cute hasband for such a wonderful birthday! XOXO

Brett, Landon and I

I love this picture of Land looking into the wishing pond.

This isn't that great of picture, but Land was tall enough to go on most the rides, even Space Mountain! (which was all done up for Halloween and even scared me) But Landon was a trooper!

Landon was so excited to see Mickey Mouse! He is so fun to go with!

Me and my beautiful Mom.

Disneyland was all decked out for Halloween. I loved it!

So fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love it all. The leaves, the pumpkins, the cool brisk air, football, Halloween. I truley love it all. (besides it's my birthday too!) So my cute husband decided like the week before my birthday that we were gonna go to Disneyland. So my cute momma, Landon, Brett and I spontaniously decided to drive to California, go to Disneyland for my birthday and drive back. We had it all planned out. We were going to get there in the evening, go to Midevil Times, go to Disneyland the next day, and drive back home the next. Needless to say it didn't quite work out that way... Our blazer overheated in Vegas, 6 hours and 600 dollars later, we were on our way to California. We missed Midevil Times, but it all worked out ok. We had a blast on my birthday, I got in free to Disneyland, and it was so fun being there with Bretto, Land and my mom.
