Baby Boe

Boe James was given a blessing on Sunday by his Dad and it was beautiful. I was able to get there early and take some newborn pictures of Boe and his parents. He's such a good baby and he's so loved.

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, because I know we did! I got everything I wanted and more. Josh made out pretty good with gifts this year as well. We had our annual big family christmas eve party and then to the Willden's for gifts. Christmas morning we were able to wake up and open some gifts and then the rest of my family came over and finished with the gifts. Christmas is so much more entertaining with little kids opening their gifts and being so excited! Josh and his sweet ski helmet.
I'm beyond beyond excited about my new Cannon Camera and two lenses!! If you need pictures taken just call me :) Now I just need to learn how to really use it.

Most if not all the family and cousins on Christmas eve.

Kole really likes his cousin Grant. Kole had a blast playing with all the older boys on Christmas eve.

One year older and....

It was my birthday on the 18th! Having so much family around I was able to celebrate my birthday all weekend long. It was fabulous :) Friday night Josh and I went to dinner and were going to go to the movies but it started late and we were both so tired, so we came home and just relaxed. (we're such an old married couple) Saturday night my family got together and we ate a lot of food and made a lot of noise. I love it! My brother was taking a lot of pictures of me and this is my "ok enough already " face. A little scary I know.
I love my husband and he spoils me so much!
Thank you babe

my co-worker made me a cake and we ate a lot of it at work :)
p.s. My new nephew's name is Boe James Jakobson and he's doing great!

He has arrived

My brother and his wife Elena just had their big baby boy Wednesday. He was a day late and they went ahead and induced her, but she had a real good labor and a pretty fast one. He has no officialy name yet ,but he weighs in at 8.12 and 22 inches! Who would've thought little Elena would have birthed such a big baby.

He's so cute and wants to eat all the time. He came out hungry :)
He has quite a bit of dar brown hair and some definite eyebrows. (thanks to my mom's side of the family)

She is a proud mother and has such a new glow and wonderful change about her. I love her and sooooooooo proud of her for being strong. CONGRATS Brent and Elena!!!

annual ugly sweater christmas party

Our best friends Boe and Charla host the annual ugly Christmas party! Everyone comes dressed in the most hideous Christmas outfits and we eat a ton and play games. It was a lot of fun this year, we haven't laughed that hard in a long time. We exchange white elephant gifts and we were lucky enough to get this gorgeous blue thing. I might put fruit in it, maybe just maybe :)

I finally finished Josh's stocking. I had started it over a year ago and just now finishing it. I looks beautiful and I'm very proud of it.

Boe and Charla have a great dane ( the one on the left) and they are also babysitting their friends great dane( the black one) . They have about 300 pounds of dog in their house!! They kept of pretty entertained.

november till now

We had a great thanksgiving. Dinner with a ton of family, making teepees out of tortillas, bowling and ending the night with gingerbread houses. I did go out on "black friday" and got some really great deals. I was very sick with the flu they whole week so that was miserable, but I tried to make the best of it on Thanksgiving. we got our christmas tree and it's beautiful.
