My little Sunbeam

Ok, so I know I am a little behind AGAIN in my blogging. So about 2 weeks ago Seth went to Primary for the first time as a Sunbeam. I can't believe that my little man is old enough to go to Primary. He was so cute that day. He walk into Primary a little unsure of the situation but was quick to realize how fun it was going to be. Spencer sat in there with him for a while and them told him that he would be back in just a few to pick him up. I have to admit I started to tear up a little as I saw him sit there with his two best buds with his arms folded tightly and just so readyto learn. He did great!! He was so excited to tell us all about it and all the songs and games they played. I sure love you Sethers!! Thanks for being such a Sunbeam in our lives!

Continuation of Cali Trip...

The day after Disneyland we went to the beach. We just hung out, rented bikes, ate way to good, and just had a great time together. The kids loved the sand (Tessa likes to eat it) and just had a very relaxing day.
Trying to keep her from eating the sand and little shells..
Too cute for words
Not a bad picture for a self timer portrait... I think this one was the fourth one:)

Low and behold look what I found Seth doing.... marking his territory!

Trip to Cali... Part IIII

On December 27th our CRAZY little family decided to follow the ASU sun devils to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. This is all Spencer wanted for Christmas so we decided to make a little trip of it. Seth, Tessa and I didn't go to the game that day but we all went to Disneyland the next day. We had so much fun. The weather was perfect and it was great to see the kids reaction to the rides. On the down side it was a bit crowded. So crowded that the where turning people away from coming in. I have never seen the place so busy. All and all we had a blast... So glad we made the trip.
Toon Town with Daddy..
Waiting to see Mickey in his house..
FINALLY, we got to see Mickey. Seth wasn't sure about him.
One things he knew he was sure about was Lighting McQueen.... Can you tell he is a Car's fan?

Christmas Day... Part lll

In our house we have the pleasure in having THREE Christmases. The first one in our little family, then onto my family, and then finally onto the in-laws house. It was a crazy day but loved spending so much time with each one of our families. Everyone of course like always goes way over board and we always come away feeling very spoiled. This was Tessa's First Christmas and she was a little taken back with all the presents and fun. Over all we had a great day with each other and are a little glad it over!!! (at least I know that I am)

Seth opening his first gift that morning..

On to Spencer's parents house. Seth's only thing that he asked for this year is Diego Stuff. Here he is opening yet another Diego gift. Thanks Granny and Papa

Tessa not sure what to do or think... All she knew is that it was fun.

Part II

On December 17th I lost my dear sweet Grandma due to her liver disease. We all knew that she was sick but didn't really realize how sick her liver really was. She was only 73 years old but she was ready to see her sweetheart that she had just lost 3 years prior. It really has not hit me that she is gone because she went so fast. I will miss her so much and am so grateful for her continues example that she was so me. I love you Grandma!
This picture was taken last March... Five Generations-Tessa, Me, my Mom, My Grandma, and Great Grandma who is still living.
We also got the chance to go to the Temple and see all the beautiful Christmas lights. Spencer's family sings at the Temple every year. I truly enjoy the warm Christmas spirit that is brings to me and my family. We are so blessed to have the Temple so close to us.

So Much to Blog About!!! Part l

Ok, so I haven't blogged in over a month and SO much has happen in my life . I am just going to start from where I left off last month so please bare with me this is going to be a very long post!! Well my sweet Tessa Bear is finally crawling!!! She is into everything and my house in NEVER clean now. She is so much fun and loves to make a mess of what every she can get her hands on. She now along with say Momma and Dadda can say "hey" , "Hiiiiii", and "oohh". She is just the light in all of our lives. In the beginning of December we had the great pleasure to go on a double date with Cami and Tyler (Spencer's brother) . We went to a Phoenix Suns game and had so much fun and laughed so hard at the lack of knowledge Cami had for the game. Sure love ya Cam!
Outside the American West Arena.... So cold!!!!
Seth had another Music Maker concert and had the opening line... He did so good and was so proud of himself. They sang Christmas songs until they where blue in the face and it was a great way to bring in the Christmas spirit.
This was our Christmas tree this year before the little monkeys got to it. This Christmas season was so much fun because Seth was SO excited about Santa Clause and was fully aware in what was going on. He knew what every single toy he wanted and knew every little Christmas song he could remember.
