It's Coming....

We just ordered more memory for my Mac so I'll finally be able to get all the pictures off of my cameras. Sheesh! The posts, they are a comin'.

My Little Gwynie Gumdrop turns 1

I know that everyone says that time starts speeding up as you get older, but I really CAN NOT believe that my little Gwyn is one already. She has been such a joy. She is the funnest little baby and we have all had such a great time with her. I'd like to think that I'm her favorite person in the whole world, but "DaDa" was her first real word and, let's be honest, Lucas is her favorite person.

Gwynie is very petite and girly looking, but when she opens her mouth she loves to let out big growls (something that Luke has taught her). It's a little disconcerting at first, but I absolutely love it! She also loves to contort her face. She doesn't have any teeth yet and she loves to suck her mouth in like a denture wearer. She sleeps through the night like a dream and loves to scream in the morning like she's about to die, but when you open the door she greats you with a big smile and jumps around and laughs like it was all a big joke. She currently says "uh oh", "dada", "mama"," wow", and she will also repeat all kinds of other words like "cracker", "book", and "bye-bye". She absolutely loves to shake her head no and say "na, na, na, na, na". She loves her soft purple blanket to go to sleep with and her favorite toy is probably the TV remote and the phone (sorry if you get a call). I just can't get enough of this little girl. I love her so much and I'm so happy to have her as my daughter. Love you little Gwynie Gumdrop!

Gwyn loved her cupcake!

Look at that face!

The girls look so happy with their goofy hats and the boys, not-so-much.

There we go...

Luke's 4th Birthday in Disneyland Paris

This year we were lucky enough to spend some time in Holland and France. While we were there we celebrated Lucas' 4th birthday at Disneyland Paris. It was crazy crowded because it was also Easter Holiday, but Luke LOVED it and so did I. Luke and I are trying to convince Jared that we need to experience the Disneyland in our neck of the woods to truly compare.

Gwynie was a good sport and tolerated it all.

I thought Luke was going to burst a blood vessel. His whole body was shaking so badly. He was convinced he could pull the sword out if we let him try a little longer. Some tears were shed. So cute!

I really am so proud of this little boy. He has such a sweet little soul and loves his little sister and family intensely. Happy 4th Birthday to my Lucas Bair. I love you more than the mountains and the ocean!

New Family Pics

We recently spent some time in Santa Monica and I had some family pictures taken on the pier. It was such a fun place to have them done. We only posed for a few and the rest were just us having fun. Here's a few of my favs:

Santa Baby

Another successful visit with Santa. I love seeing Christmas through my kids' eyes. I wish I would have waited on printing the Christmas card though; these would have made the card spectacular.

New Digs

We've officially been in California just over 3 months. For the most part we are settled into our home, with exception to our room, and we're getting into the routine of things.

Jared is working on Sand Hill Road, which is 5 min from home; much better than the weekly commute from Utah. We actually get to see him everyday and it's been SO much nicer than having him gone Tues-Thurs each week.

Lucas is in Preschool two days a week and loves his new friends and teachers. Whenever he does something he shouldn't he asks me not to tell Teacher Lori or Teacher Nancy. I've loved watching Luke's personality emerge as he's gotten older. He's extremely inquisitive and this kid is FUNNY. Two days ago we awoke to find that during the night he had decided to put on his newly purchased underwear. The fun didn't end there; he proceeded to put on every pair he could find....14 pair. He slept the entire night in 14 pair of undies. I wish we had taken a picture, but we only found out when we came running in screaming that he needed to go pee. Jared had to pry those babies off as fast as he could.

Gwynie is a little joy. She is just over 6 months, is the easiest baby and is sleeping great. She gets so excited when anyone talks to her and her whole body wiggles around with joy when I go into pick her up in the morning. She ADORES her big brother and will instantly stop crying if he talks to her. If Gwyn is crying in the back seat I'll ask Luke to sing to her and she is mesmerized by him. I love seeing these two together. She chews and slobbers on everything in sight and is rolling around the room to get to the things she wants.

I'm really enjoying being in California. I'm missing the snow right now, but I REALLY love the fact that I can be outside everyday. Winter is so much easier to get through when your kids can play outside. I've been cooking quite a bit more here and I've been refinishing some furniture in my free time. I have an elliptical machine on the patio that I want to work out on at least 3 times a week, but usually don't. I also have a Zumba class that I want to go to twice a week, but I've been to once so far. Baby steps.

Here are some pics of the new house. For those of you that are clean freaks, look the other way. Sorry this has taken so long Aunt Diane!
We need to plant some flowers- I know.

I'm too ashamed to put any pictures of my room right now. I'll try to post some when I have it looking a little better.

We're super excited to see everyone in Utah during the holidays and we're also really excited to have our new friends in California. Thanks for all your support and love.
