our little girl making us smile

this video is a little old, but we really like it so we wanted to post it still. we sure do love this girl.

and we wanted to show off one of her funny little quirks - this beautiful girl is such a noisy eater.

i'm a little concerned that one of her first words is "uh oh". :)

Family Pictures

A while ago we got our family photos taken. We finally got them back just a little bit before Christmas. My sister-in-law Sherry and her photographer friend took them for us. I thought I'd share some of our favorites...

December C's

For December, since it was a busy month with family and holidays and everything, my Create was simple. I made our 2011 ornament. I was looking for a little 2x2 block of wood to make it, but I couldn't find one that size that didn't require us cutting it. So while searching for a block of wood I found a little 2x2 rubix cube that I decided to use instead. I took off the stickers and mod podged the pictures on and well, here it is. I like how it turned out. :)

For my Cook I decided to make this crockpot Christmas breakfast recipe. I figured if it turned out good it could be our traditional Christmas breakfast since it cooks all night and it would be a nice easy warm breakfast in the morning. I think it turned out okay, but it wasn't my favorite, so I don't know if we'll try it again... oh well. :)

With so many family visiting, I had a few opportunities to take pictures. Nobody wanted to go outside for pictures though, so I had to find places to take pictures inside... I used the Tanner Building at BYU, I need to find new inside locations though I think cuz it wasn't the best place for family group photos. :)

I really did learn so much this year working on my C's and I'm so glad I decided to blog about them because it kept me going. There were so many projects and things that I wanted to try and do and photo things I wanted to learn and I actually did a few of them this year. It's been great and I'm grateful for the encouragement I got from family and friends too because it also kept me going. This next year I probably won't do my monthly blogs about them anymore, but I do want to continue making new things and taking photos and learning more. I have new resolutions to work on this new year though... #1 on my list is meal planning and eating better... anyone have tips for me on that? :) Happy New Year!
