Winter Wonderland

One of the places we took our family was to hike the Kamiak Butte. Unfortunately, Crystal was sick so Becky stayed behind with her. It was absolutely gorgeous and everyone had a great time!!

Turkey Day Fun and Extra

I would have to say - I think Crystal's favorite part of our trip was Thanksgiving Day...she was able to eat ALL the olvies she wanted...and then some. From the moment she walked in the door until she left, she had a group of olives on her fingers.

It didnt help that all the cousins loved and encouraged her by making sure she was fully stocked at all times. ;)

Mark and Crystal.

Crystal and Mia.

What? Is this Crystal WITH Uncle Jeremiah...this was surprisingly great, seeing that he scared her once at 6 months and Crystal hasn't gone to him since. hehe :)

Brian and Crystal kissing the kitty.

These two pics are our cats we raised while in Shelton - the best cats in the world. They would let crystal pick them up, sit on them, etc and just purr in return.

Cider Mill

We had a lot of fun at the Cider Mill with Kevin and Chanel.

While there, we walked around the farm and were able to feed the animals. The best part was Crystal feeding the goats-priceless.

Unfortunately, the pics of her kissing them didnt come out, but I'm sure you can imagine.

She loves horses, and Brian couldn't resist.


Taylor's Birthday

Happy Birthday Tay!!

We had a GREAT time at Taylor's Birthday Party. It was great having all the family and fun friends there for her.

The cake was great-little cupcakes placed next to each other with frosted "TAYLOR" on top! Very fun!

Needless to say, Crystal loved it just as much...

if not more than most. :)

Let's go Swimming!!

With the weather turning cold, we've been looking for fun indoor things to do - one of those being swimming lessons for Crystal. It's been a lot of fun for both her and us.


Brian was given two free tickets to the WSU football game this weekend. He's been feeling pretty sick lately, but obviously not too sick to turn down free tickets.
Unfortunately, it had snowed the day before AND WSU did terrible to say the least (three interceptions in the first 10 mins) We didnt stay long, but we had a great time!! Thanks Ross and Sarah!!

Potty Training Already??

Okay, so the past few weeks, Crystal loves going "potty" on the toilet...meaning "sit on the toilet" and smile like a big girl. So the other day, we were getting her ready for a bath when all the sudden her face said "I need to go potty" and she pointed to the toilet. So I put her on, and the next thing I knew...what? Did she just Poop in the Toilet?!?!?! I was SOO impressed, and the best part was SHE WAS TOO!!! Once she realized she finally "went potty" her face lit up and she was SOOO excited!!
Here are a few pics of our proud moment.

Crystal excited, and her wiping after wards while saying "bye bye" to the toilet paper.

PS...we're not counting on this to be a regular thing...but it's still fun all the same! hehe

Pumpkin Carving

On Hallow's Eve we made mini mummy pizzas for dinner and carved pumpkins in the evening.
Can you guess whose is who's?

It's Mrs. Happy Face and Mr. Werewolf Harry Potter. hehe We had so much fun!
Crystal LOVED watching, touching, and tasting. I dont think I've ever seen her more curious-it was so much fun!
