One night, some friends of ours offered to watch the kids for a weekend so that Ryan and I could get away. It was the nicest thing anyone's done for me/us in a while--one of those times when I really needed a break. I still look back on their kindness with wonder and hope that I can be more selfless like that.

Here are some shots from our two day getaway...

If you've never been, you must before you die, it's a wonderland you can spend days exploring!

Keira's Baptism

Shots from Keira's baptism a couple of weeks ago. It was a chilly, snowy February morning, but peaceful and everything went smoothly...

I promised her candy or ice cream if she would take her jacket off for "just one" photo outside.

While we waited in the chapel, I had a chance to take a few shots while the kids played...

 Daddy and Keira

After the baptism, since we had family in town, we had an 8th birthday party for her.

My dad and stepmom drove from Salt Lake.

Keira's friends singing "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen.

It was a "Puss In Boots" party theme, but you wouldn't have guessed it if you didn't look at the invites, cake, and 3 foot poster I stuck to the kitchen wall.

Since it's still January, and I've been in absentia, hiding out in Instagram and spending more time with the kids, even sewing less, I'll indulge with a blogpost about the last year, or the 6 months since my last post.

We enjoyed summer in our town.

We spent a many days lazing around our friends' home.

In September, my sister and brother-in-law visited from Hawaii and I got to meet my little nephew, Ezra. The kids loooove their new little cousin.


My mom visited in October


Fall in Utah is always gorgeous

Our Christmas was quiet, happy, but we all caught the flu.

I managed to help a friend sew some stockings for her family. I do have sewing plans for 2014, hopefully will get more done than last year.

We hope to have as much fun this year as we did last year. Happy New Year!
