Christmas in Salt Lake

We got to meet up with Michael, Rachael and their kids at the children's museum.  The kids had a great time together.
A little snuggle time with Grandma.

All dressed up in our Christmas dresses!

Michael and Rachael got to join us for Christmas Eve.

The girls both got to go to Build a Bear and pick out their own special bears.  They love them.

We went to the Zoo lights at the Hogle Zoo.  Sophie and Addie both rode on the merry go round.

 It was cold but not horrible.  Addie didn't have a good hat so I put a shirt on her head for a hat :)

Love this smiling face!

Ready for the big exchange game!
Tara, Ryan, Mia and Tayen joined us also!  So much fun!

It may be hard to tell here but the kids were acting out the Christmas story.  They loved it so much we did it 2 times!

Random pictures

 So Kent and I both decided some time ago we we needed to change up how much we were eating.  So in February we started on Nutrisystem.  During the past 6 months Kent has lost 60 pounds!  He still wants to loose some more but he has done really well.  I have managed to lose 30 pounds (but it doesn't show as much on me :(  
I have actually been on a protein diet the past 4 weeks called Ideal Protein and while I lost 20 pounds on Nutrisystem I seemed pretty stuck so I changed it up and have lost 10 more. 
Certainly not world peace but it has been a good change for us.  We both want to lose some more weight and then figure out how to keep this as part of our daily lives (which of course is the hardest).  I just thought you might like to see a picture of Kent.  (His shirt is pretty baggy in this one but I think you can see the difference)

Erik's room mate at school, Tyler Williams, actually lives in Sacramento.  He just returned home from school and is getting ready for his mission to Brazil and so him and his dad went and found Erik!  It was so fun to get a picture of him. 


I'm sure Jennie will get more pictures up but I loved this picture because you can see the beautiful blue eyes of Sophie and the dark brown eyes of Addie!  Love these girls!

July family visit

Over the 4th of July Jennie, Mike and the kids came up to visit.  Scott came down and hung out for a while also.  Addie is walking around everywhere now. 

 Sophie got sick on one of the days so she got a little extra nap time in.  It wasn't bad and pretty much just lasted a few hours and then she was up and going. 

One of Addie's favorite things to do is to climb in boxes and play with the toys while she is in the box.  It's kinda like a minature play pen. 

 Some of the other Beaird family was also in Seattle for the 4th.  On the 4th our ward had a breakfast party up at the building.  There was a lot of people there and Sophie made friends very quickly and had a great time. 

We have some friends staying with us for a couple of months, Kristine and Kallee and their little girl Evelyn.  Addie had a good time hanging out with Evelyn. Nothing like sharing a "breakfast" moment to start off the day.

Mother's Day weekend in SLC

Ms. Addie was so sweet this weekend.  She was just fun and cuddly! 

We went to the rec center to wait for Mommy and Aunt Tara to finish their race.  Sophiie loves to bring her little "dog" Emilee (her name sake)  She was super excited about cheering on her mom in the race.  She really wanted her mom to "win the race"  I told her that when her mom came across the finish line she "won".  She even got a medal to that confirmed the win!

Of course we had to get some park time.  Addie loved the swing and was mad when I took her out - LOL.  She is getting such a personality.  When she doesn't get her way she just puts her little face down on the floor and cries.  It's a pretty good move to tear at Grandma's heart.

Jennie & Tara did a Triathlon in Bountiful.  It was the 3rd time Jennie had done it and the first time for Tara.  They both did great.

Early Easter Egg Hunt

We had a early Easter Egg hunt with Sophie today. It was super windy but she liked looking anyway. Isn't that a great looking family?
Addie having a ride with her dad with the beautiful mountains in the background.
Sophie and I colored eggs together again this year. She liked putting the eggs in each color.
She was so proud of her eggs.
Trying to not get blown away while hunting for the eggs.

Conference Trip

OK, don't even say it. I know it's been since July since I posted. Lots of excuses..... Anyway... Kent and I are in Salt Lake for Conference. I have never been able to go to conference before so I'm really excited. Today though we got to play Grandma and Grandpa and we took the girls to the Hogle Zoo. We had a great time and it was nice weather but Addie did a bit of sunburn on her face.
They have a fun playground for the kids so Sophie really enjoyed that.
We took the girls on the merry go round and the train ride.
I got the girls a couple of matching outfits. It's sooo fun to have 2 girls :)
