Much Needed Update

I’m a busy blogger so I haven’t posted anything for awhile. Until recently, the weather was very mild. We’ve been lucky to be able to spend so much time outdoors.
For Halloween, Avery and I went to a big neighborhood party. She was Mulan and looked gorgeous. Her favorite princesses are Mulan and Pocahantas. Dex and Trevin both had strep throat, so they stayed home and slept on the couch. In fact, when I got home from the party, Dex was asleep standing up. Check out the photo below!

In November, we celebrated my mom’s birthday. We had a big, Italian dinner at our house and even took a photo with the entire family. The next week, we headed south for a little fun in the sun in St. George (but it wasn’t very warm.) We spent Thanksgiving with the Wallin family. Avery had the time of her life playing with her cousins for four straight days.

At the end of the month, it was Trevin’s birthday so we had a little party with him at home. We even made crème brulee. Yummy!

Most recently, we returned from Florida. We spent a couple days in Disney World and couple days in West Palm Beach. We stayed with our good friends, Chris, Robin, and Carter Christiansen. We played and the park, went to the beach, and swam in their pool while it snowed in Utah! Dex loved the sand and Avery was stung on her knee by a man-o-war.

We are enjoying the holiday season. Avery and Dex are getting excited about Christmas and most importantly are excited to spend more time with our families. May you find peace in you lives during this time of the year.

Sounds like you guys are having so much fun as a family! I love the pictures you post on here! Your kids are adorable! Sorry I have not been up to visit you yet. Once I return from Maine I will be better about that! Have great Christmas! Give hugs to Avery and Dex for me!

I wish I got to go to Disney World! It is only the best place in the world. Seeing all the girls in their jammies made me sad because our girls were missing. Maybe there will come a time when we will be there. Miss you guys. Merry Christmas.

Cute pics Court! Your kids are getting so big! When I came to Michigan to watch Avery and Dex, Avery wanted to watch Mulan constantly! She loved it, I had to distract her with 'messy' projects!
