Festival of Trees

Every year we love to go and support Primary Children's Hospital by attending the Festival of Trees. Not only do we love seeing all the trees, wreaths, gingerbread houses, nativities, entertainment, and eating the scones, but we always remember what great care the people at Primary's gave Adam when he was there. We will always be grateful for their wonderful service and expertise and for their help and support at a trying time. They truly are an amazing organization.
Every year, we search until we find the BYU tree:)

We went with David's family this year. Adam was so cute with his cousin, Annie. He was such a good helper and wanted her to walk so bad!

They had so many kids activities this year! Adam thought the Bubble Machine was pretty cool.


David and Adam's favorite exhibit

I actually thought the Gingerbread Houses were quite impressive this year as well.

"UP" was a common theme on many of them.

All Smiles

Brandon is already 2 months old and he has the cutest little smile. I love his chubby round cheeks and double chin!!

This next picture was taken when he was 4-6 weeks old. It is David's favorite.

I love when they start to hold their head up. It is just so sweet. Believe it or not, Brandon actually even rolled over last week. Of course I have no proof because he wouldn't do it on the camera, but he did it! Pretty crazy. He is a strong boy. We just love him so much.

Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...

...But we Made the Day Delightful!
This is such a fun age for the snow, because Adam actually enjoys it and wants to go out. We have a perfect hill for sledding right outside our front door at the park across the street!
Along with sledding, we have also turned on our fireplace the past couple of nights, and put up our Christmas decorations. It has been so cozy to nestle up by and hot chocolate has been a must around our place. I guess these first winter storms aren't so bad after all.
We waited for David to come home from work, so it got dark pretty fast!

We had to bundle up good, because it was only 17 degrees, but we made it work! Can you find Brandon? I think he had he best seat in the house:)

These next pictures were actually taken in November when we had our first snow. It was a lot warmer and we had better snow. It was a beautiful afternoon for Adam, Brandon, and me.

Adam was even able to bring the sled up all by himself.
These are the moments when I can enjoy the cold and winter months!

Turkey Trot

A girl in our neighborhood started a fun tradition of putting on a Turkey Trot each year on Thanksgiving. They have a 5K run, walk or bike and then a kid's race. It was only a mere 19 degrees, and 7:30 in the morning, but David still went out and ran. Adam did the kid's race, and Brandon and I were cheerleaders on the side:)





The kids were rewarded with stickers and everyone enjoyed some fruit and water after it was done. The freezing weather didn't stop any of these crazy die hards!
Maybe next year, the weather won't be so bad for a better turn out.
