Happy New Year! Apparently I've been reduced to schlepping pictures off my phone and blogging them at the end of every month and that's about it. Oh well. Better than nothing, right?

The Hitts came down for a few days to celebrate New Years. We took them to Dixie Rock.
 Puzzle time!
 Kyler got his wisdom teeth out. He was a surprisingly good patient and luckily he didn't have any complications. He had lots of milkshakes and watched lots of movies.
 We had a HUGE concrete pad poured next to the 3rd car garage on the side of the house for the basketball goal.
 Kyler got in his first wreck. :( 4-car rear-end pile up after school.
 January is official "Project Month" around here. First up.....hanging my picture wall. It was quite a process but I am happy with how it turned out!
 Kyler had a friend take some Senior Pictures of him. Here are just a couple of my handsome boy.
 And a couple more of my handsome boy with Shelby
 Trevin and his BFF. These two are inseparable.
 Another project...making a shirt for Kierstyn to wear in her Air Guitar Competition.
 Yes, I said Air Guitar Competition. Haha!
 One more project....painting the wall in the piano room
 Getting ready for a semi-big project....making Kyler a quilt. I have always said that I was going to make a quilt for my kids when they graduate from High School. Um, I'd better get busy! Finally picked a pattern/design and I've started choosing fabric. Still need a few more though.

12 more in 12

In 2013 I set a goal to visit 12 different temples in a year (which I did). So in 2015 I set a goal to visit 12 MORE temples (which I did!)
Here they all are :)
Oquirrp Mountain (UT), Atlanta, Bountiful (UT), Provo (UT), Payson (UT), Newport (CA), Phoenix,  Mesa, Ogden (UT), Mt. Timpanogos (UT), Las Vegas & Nashville


Kelly made my dreams of an outdoor nativity set come true! <3 p="">
 Pictures in my front entry make me happy
 This cutie's school picture is totally adorable
 Trevin & his bestie Josh....these two have been inseparable as of late. Here they were working on their cell model projects together.
 And they went to see Star Wars together
 Early Christmas present = quick family trip to Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo. It was super fun!
We did our best to look the part
 My red hair got a touch up. It definitely took some getting used to but I am loving it!
 Decorating for Christmas
 We made chocolate covered strawberries for our neighbor Christmas gifts this year. It was super easy and they were super yummy!!! Hopefully the beginning of a new tradition.
 And of course I had to make my Grandma's caramel corn
 Remembering Christmas past...they were so little!
Celebrating Christmas at home before we went to TN.
 Hailey drew Kierstyn's name in the cousin gift exchange and she MADE her this blanket!!! We are all envious!!!!!
 A favorite pic
 Another early Christmas present.....we sent the kids up to Brian Head for a day of snowboarding
 This kid :)
  We drove through Nevada's largest outdoor light display while in Vegas
Selfie on the Vegas strip
 This cool kid in all his new clothes

Oh what a year!
