The end of 2010!

One of my goals this year is to be a better blogger with my family blog.
First of all I need to some up the end of 2010.

I am going to start with Brock's Baptism!
I am a complete slacker and forgot the camera, so the only
pictures I have are the ones I took for the invitations.
We had a great day. Of course you can't come to the baptism without
a good laugh. I am not sure if I should blame this on my pregnancy or just that I am a blonde. 
I will go with my pregnancy. Anyway after Brock was baptized I was like, "Crap I forgot the towels!"
What a dork! So Scott had to run and get the towels. In the mean time Jason forgot his underwear and his brother and dad ran to get that. Needless to say it was a longer baptism then it should have been.
Brock had asked his uncles to talk at his Baptism. Uncle Scott and uncle Jeremy gave great talks to help Brock out on his new journey in life. Jeremy used a baseball analogy that was perfect for Brock as he talked about the steps you need to take in like to reach each base and then to return to our Father in Heaven.
I appreciated all the family that took time out of their busy lives to share this special day with Brock.
I can't believe he is already this old.


We spent Thanksgiving at home this year!
Well actually we spent it at my parents house.
Again I forgot my camera, so I have no pictures to show for it.
I am sure my mom has some that I can add onto her later.
Nothing too exciting happened we just spent the day cooking, eating, and playing card games.

Mike and Tonia's Sealing
Our next big event was our trip to Alamo and St. George for Jason's brother Mike and his wife Tonia's sealing. I was able to take a couple of days off before Christmas break in order to make it to the temple to watch this cute family be sealed together forever.

What a great experience it was to watch from another perspective. 
The last time I was at a sealing was for my family.
I can't explain the joy and happiness that felt my heart and
I watched their sweet little children walk into the room.
They were all so sweet and looked like little angels.
I am so happy that I was able to be apart of this family's special day!

I was also able to see my aunt Jodi and her daughter Jill while we were in St. George!
Jodi was so good to watch my children for me so I could attend the temple.
My kids loved hanging out with her. They didn't want to leave.
She bought them play dough and Jaylee thought it was the coolest thing ever,
because that stuff isn't allowed in my house.
We ate dinner with all of Jason's family that was able to attend and Jodi came along with us
to the Texas Roadhouse. Again Jodi was a hit as both of my kids thought they had to be all over her 
during dinner.

We then left and headed to Alamo to spend a few days with Jason's family since we wouldn't be able to make it back after Christmas.  I love how laid back in is there. I seriously didn't get dressed before noon each day except the last day. I was able to get glitter toes done. I love them and they still look fabulous. All the cousins hung out and of course I had to throw a craft in there.
I asked my FIL, Gary to cut us out these cute snowmen that
I saw at a girl's house in Alamo. Thanks Jenna for your pattern!
They turned out so cute!

I also was able to make my MIL, Annette and my mom a picture of the temple.
They were like the big one's from Desert Book.
I love how they turned out and I also ordered myself one.
I will post some pictures when I get some taken.

 We were home for Christmas. Jason and I stayed up a little too late the night before.
I got to bed at 3:30am and Jason I think was somewhere around 4ish. 
Brock is the best kid! I can't believe how much patience he has on Christmas morning.
He wanted Jaylee to sleep with him, so after she finally fell asleep around 1:00am I put her in bed with Brock. Christmas morning her brought her into my bed around 7:00 am and he went out to the living room to watch t.v. until I told him at 7:45 that he could call his aunts, uncle, and grandparents to come over to watch them open gifts. This was the chaotic mess!

  Aunt Mel taught Jaylee how to put on an oven mitt to get her food out of the oven!

Sorry that this was such a long post, but it is more for my sake of writing it down!
