Happy New Year!

This past year has been an amazing one for me. I have been blessed beyond measure! This little angel has taught me so much about life and love, and I am so grateful to be her mother.

This picture isn't very clear, but it's so cute! We just got home from church, and she was so happy for some reason. That's a mighty cute set of teeth! She's very proud of them.

On New Year's Day, my family went to my parents house to get together. My Grandma Boyer was there, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a picture of the four of us. She just turned 90 this past year. She's truly an inspiration to me. I love you, Grandma.
On New Year's Eve, Garret's family went up to Island Park to stay with his grandma. We took the opportunity to go cross county skiing and witness some of the breathtaking scenery. It was so fun. Jaida stayed with her Grandpa Cook, and the rest of the kids went with us in sleds. Thanks grandma for letting us stay. We love you!

Jaida and her cousin, Avery, with matching Jammies. So cute!

So the other day, Garret had a bag of chips sitting out on the coffee table. He went in to the kitchen to get something, and when he came back Jaida had found the bag and was eating out of it like she had done it a hundred times (she's never had anything like that before). The tv was on, and she barely took her eyes off of it when she'd reach in and pull out a huge chip. It was so hillarious. She looked at me like 'these are pretty good, mom, but nothing special'.

Jaida and her cousin, Mattson. What a sweet little boy!

CHRISTMAS MORNING....she loved her new book, but she loved the boxes and paper even more!

Daddy's Girl!

CHRISTMAS EVE.....Jaida's holding pipe cleaners with bells on them. She used them very appropriately during the singing of "Jingle Bells". Good job, honey.

Jaida and her cousin, Aidan. They were very cute together. It was so fun to have all of Garret's siblings here for Christmas. We love you all!

Jaida's toothy grin.
