Christmas in Star Valley!

Lella is pretty close to walking so we bought her this toy that she can push and walk with. She loves it!

I was so excited this year to give Tyrell his gifts. The big one I gave him was a new 40 cal hand gun. He had no idea he was getting it. He normally finds out ever year what he is getting but this year I made sure that it would be a surprise. Oh he loves it. I did good this year. It turned out to be a great Christmas!

Christmas Eve!

I thought this picture was so cute of Lella!

This kids put on the nativity Christmas eve and Lella was the sheep. It was very funny when she came crawling out with the mask on. She has always been good with leaving things on her head. It was a very fun night with Tyrell's family in star valley.

A great 4 years!!

We celebrated our anniversary this month on the 19th. Tyrell and I went out together by ourselves for the first time since Lella was born. We had a great time being together just the two of us. This is what Ty made me to go by the side of of our log bed he made. We will have matching lamp shades when we find the right ones. He did a great job!

A new Christmas Dress!

I had a coupon which made this dress only 6 dollars. I love it when I find good deals. Lella looked so dang cute today at church!

Lella's new adventures!

Lella will be 8 months old on Christmas Day. We can't believe how much she is getting around. She has been crawling for about a month and a half now. And now is pulling herself up on everything. We normally eat most of our meals on the couch and now we cant without her crabbing everything off our plates. I guess it is time to start eating around the table like we should of been all a long.

Last weekend Lella and I went down to Roy to visit my Mom and Dad. It was good to go spend the night and let Lella get to know her grandparents a little more. Saturday morning we met up with some of my friends from high school and had a little shower for Angie who is due to have a baby in about a month. It was good to see them and tell Angie things she might experience having a baby. We sure had a good weekend!

Lella's first Christmas Tree!!

The same weekend as Thanksgiving it is a tradition of ours to go to Star valley and cut down a Christmas tree with Tyrell's family. This year was extra special because we have our little girl to share the fun with. She was such a good sport, like always and enjoyed getting all bundled up and going out in the cold.

I found our tree clear up on this hill. Tyrell made me make sure that it was the one before he hiked up there to get it. You can't just settle for a tree that is close to the road because they are never good. If you want a good one you have to be willing to go hike for it. which is the fun of it. Plus I just think how it is giving my legs a good workout!

This is the result of our searching this year! I love having the tree up and everything decorated because of the feeling it brings into our home. I put everything up as soon as I can so that I can enjoy it as long as possible.

Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving was great this year! We all went up to Preston Idaho to celebrate. Travis, my brother in-law was on call with his job so he wasn't able to leave, so we went to them. They reserved the church and had everything there. Later that evening we went over to the High School and played dodge ball in the big wrestling room and hide and go seek in the gym. We had a lot of fun this year, thanks to the Despains. They put in a lot of time and work to make it so we had fun and it paid off! Thanks so much you guys.
This year I wanted to attempt to make pies. The one I'm holding was a pumpkin cheese cake. I made two of those. I would have to say it was mighty yummy! I also made two banana cream and one chocolate. It was a lot of fun but took time. We will see If I do it again next year. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving like we did!

Trick or Treat!!

Surprisingly she didn't mind wearing this. She kept it on pretty much the whole time.

Ty's friend said that if Lella came to his house trick or treating then he would give her candy but she had to come by herself so we put her in her seat and put her on his door step, rang the door bell and ran around there house. It was about her bed time so she sat quite and very chill which made it even more funny! They were sure glad to see her.

One night after work I took Lella out next to our house to see if I could get some pictures before all the leaves are gone. This is how it turned out. I should of known. Lella could not stop playing with the leaves around her so I couldn't get her to look up at me. I got one picture out of like the fifteen I took. Hey I'm thankful I got one.

Yummy baking!

Lately Sundays are my only day that I can bake anything. This last time making bread has to be my best bread yet! I think I'm getting better every time. Last time I made it Tyrell went through 3 loaves in less than 2 weeks. I'm finally figuring out how to make it so it's not so hard. Plus having a kitchen aid really helps out a lot. And these cinnamon rolls I have made probably 4 times in the last 2 months. I better be careful my neighbors are going to start expecting them. They are so easy! I tend to over do it with making the same thing to many times. I find a recipe that I like and is simple and I always want to make it. Ty doesn't complain at least I'm baking things for him.

Lots has gone on around our parts these days!

And we have our crazy times here at home. When mom comes home Lella knows it's time to play!

She's still poopin a lot which always comes at the wrong time.

She has started eating real food. It took her a while to get it down but she's a pro now!

Lella loves hanging out with dad all day while moms at work. She has been so good for him while he does his homework.

I chopped my hair off! A whole 14 inches. It has been a fun I needed a good change.
Sorry that my face looks funny I just had some work done on my mouth and I was pretty swollen so I couldn't smile.

Lella's 4 month stats

Weight: 12lbs 12oz-31%

Length: 243/4- 70%

Head circumference: 401/4cm- 29%

Doctor said she looks great! We did have a scare a week ago. Lella got a really high fever and we had to take her to the hospital. They ended up doing a bunch of tests on her. Poor girl had a real rough night. They were trying to get an IV from her, tried to get a vein in her head twice, not being able to get any blood so finally found one in her hand. It was so sad, I was pretty emotional. She has been on a antibiotic so that has help a lot. It's been good to have our little girl back. It's not fun when she isn't feeling good.

Fun festivities on the 4th of July!!

This is Lella's cute outfit she wore on the 4th. Friday night we went over to Jeff's house for a bbq then headed up to the fireworks at the stadium. We were able to watch and listen to Diamond Rio. That happens to be one our favorite country bands. It was so good and we had the best seats. Lella slept through the whole firework show. She is such a good sleeper, it's crazy! Saturday Jessica had a little birthday party at her house then we headed over to the cruzin. It's a parade that Logan has every year with tons of old cars. We look forward to it every year. I think we are going to make it a tradition to come back for. It was a full weekend of lots of fun but we were sure exhausted by the end.

2 Months old!

I took Lella swimming the other day when I got off early from work. Lella looked so cute in her little swim suit. She loves the water, hopefully it stays that way. Oh I have to announce this because it is the most exciting thing for us lately. Lella is sleeping through the night. Yippy!

Tyrell likes to get his little girl ready and dressed for the day. He brought her out of the room with these cute shoes on that are way to BIG! I told him that they didn't fit but he said he didn't care he thought they looked cute anyway. They didn't last very long on her feet. After that he took her downstairs with him to watch some baseball. Her feet look huge in this picture I thought it was cute:)
