Snow Day at Lake Tahoe

Today we took advantage of being only 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe, and played in the snow. It was pretty fun!

We attempted to take a quick family photo, and this is what we got.

My two sleeping beauties........ The one on the RIGHT is definitely a beauty!

Three Month Old Lily

She got a hold of my hair

"Let me out of here!"

I was trying to block the wind with the blanket

Do you like the drool on the shirt?

I just had to include this one, both with their eyes partially or totally closed.
Like father like daughter.

"You do have a point."

Biggest Loser Update

Well, yesterday marked the end of 3 weeks of our family Biggest Loser. I dreaded the morning, and finally got myself on that blasted scale. Much to my surprise it said 3 pounds LESS! YIPPEE!!!!! That makes a total of 7 pounds lost. Slow and steady wins the race!

A Failed Attempt

The other day I was making some bread. While it was rising we were asked to go play some games with friends. I completely forgot about the bread and this is what we came home to 3 hours later. I still baked it and tasted pretty good, just a LITTLE fluffy!

Lily Lately

Just after a bath

A sneeze

I just love these jeans


Love the hair!

Not too happy

Go Cougars!

I know Brian's eyes are almost closed BUT I LOVE Lily's smile!

This one is better of Brian

Fell asleep playing with her favorite toy, a zebra


It's BUMBO time (the name of the chair she's in)

My Man

The other day I had a 'complaint' from Brian, he said that all my posts lately were about Lily. So I'm making it up to him. This post is ALL about Brian!
I'm not sure how old he is here, but isn't he a cutie!

Some time in high school

Our honeymoon

When he was baptized, his grandfather baptized him.

Woah!!! What a hottie!


On his mission in Ukraine

Driving the Duck in Boston

With his best friend, Jerry, at our reception.

The day we got married, the Fresno, CA Temple.

I just LOVE this guy!!!

Biggest Loser Update

I know it's only been 1 week since my family and I began our "Biggest Loser", but Thursdays are weigh in days. I was dreading getting on the scale this morning because I haven't been as good as I should have but I was pleasantly surprised. I lost 2 pounds!! I told myself, "I CAN do it!" Let's hope I can continue with it!
