Santas Visit

Meeting Santa went over pretty much how I expected it 2. As long as she wasn't alone up there all was well but as soon as we tried to get her by herself she freaked.
It's always a fun time at the Beck Family Christmas Party.

Pictures and more Pictures

I finally finished the letters I've been working on for the babies room. We went to the Jazz Game recently with the Buhlers.We had a fun dinner party on Friday with some friends. I'm the annoying girl that makes everyone pose for pictures but I think they're so fun.This picture just makes me laugh out loud. We told Shay to put her arm around Jack and she kind of choked him out. Cute kids!

Viva Las Vegas

We had a fun shopping weekend in Las Vegas. The goal was for everyone to get all of their Christmas shopping finished. I'm not sure if that was accomplished but we had lots of fun.

This pretty much sums up our weekend...

I woke up Thanksgiving night with the worst stomach ache. 24 hours later it had spread like crazy to everyone we'd been in contact with. So pretty much we haven't left the couch all weekend.

Fortunately my parents had come to town for the BYU game and took good care of the baby.
Unfortunately we sent them home today with my poor mom puking her guts out.

Unfortunately Chad wasn't able to attend the football game because he was that sick.
Fortunately he was able to watch it on TV while Joe Durfey went in his place.

Unfortunately I have now had the Swine Flu and the stomach flu. I think I've been sick 20 out of 30 days in November.
Fortunately I think that means I'm good to go for the next year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a great Thanksgiving. We stayed around and had lunch with Chads immediate family. Later that evening we met at his grandparents house for dinner with everyone. That morning we met with the Spencers to take some family pictures for them
We have lots to be Thankful for and it's great to have 1 day a year that's dedicated to that

It's not even Thanksgiving...

We officially have our tree up! In the 4 years that Chad and I have been married we've never put up a tree. I thought it was a hassle and didn't want 2. I still think it's a hassle but I figured I need to help make Christmas traditions and memories for Leighton (I know she can't remember yet).My favorite thing about this tree are the little ceramic hand painted ornaments that my grandma and aunt painted for me. There were so many of them and I can't even imagine how long it took them to finish them all. Definitely something that will be cherished for a long time.

We took a quick trip to Logan to visit Mccall 4 parents weekend at Utah State. I think I've only been back once since I graduated 5 or 6 years ago. We ate at one of my favorite restaurants and got to hang out and have family time. It's sure a cute town to visit but I could never live there again..way 2 COLD!

Halloween 09

I guess I figured that I'd have many years of princesses and butterfly's for Halloween so for Leightons first costume she got to be a skeleton. It was easy and cheap! We went to a Halloween party at Abbie and Nicos house. Go figure we were hunters.
That is Michael Vick in the middle. He brought along his 11 month old puppy Cal. Leighton and Cal
My work had a Halloween party so Steph and I did practice runs with our kids and brought them along. She is a mess but I still thought she was the funniest/cutest thing.

Date Night

The one benefit to having Chad in class some nights is that I get to have a date night with Krystal and Rachel. Krystals hubby is in class 2 and Rachel is nice enough to make time for us in her busy life. This week Krystal had us over to her house for an awesome dinner. I grew up with these girls and it's so much fun to get together and reminisce.
This picture was taken last night at a surprise party for Mike. Life gets busy and we don't get together often enough so a birthday is always a good excuse.

Some Pre-Halloween

I don't decorate for Halloween but our Grandma Anita goes all out. Leighton had a mini panic attack when we tried to make her pose for pictures but I made her anyways :)

Pictures at the Temple

We had a fun little mini photo shoot at the temple until we accidently sat the baby down in an ant pile and she got bit all over. Poor little thing had little welts all over her legs and feet.

4 Years!!

I believe that it was by pure fate that I met Chad. He is everything I could have asked for and he makes my life amazing! Happy Anniversary to us!

Can you say COLD!!

We took a quick vacation to Thayne, Jackson, and Yellowstone. For some DUMB reason we didn't even bother to check the forecast. We got to enjoy lots of snow, wind, and rain. that we weren't prepared for. We did hit up a few of the must see sights on our trip and still got to see all the animals. The must have picture in Jackson Hole. The Spencers came with and kept us great company.This is a quick hike we took at Jenny Lake.
The cabin we were staying in was in kind of a wooded area on a golf course. There were lots of deer all over just eating the trees and bushes. One morning when we woke up this buck was just hanging out. I was excited to get pictures of him.
Just B4 Old Faithful went off.

Sleepy Trick

This doesn't look comfortable to me but it must be to her because every time we take her on a walk she comes home asleep. I just think she looks cute all bundled up.
This is just a picture I took tonight that I thought turned out cute.

Biter Biscuits and Regrowth

I hesitate to give her these things because they are such a mess but she loves them. Plus I think she makes a cute little mess.Please tell me that someone else has to deal with this problem!
Since having my baby some of the hair that I lost is starting to grow back in and I look like Alfalfa! It just pokes straight up and is of course right up front. For all of your sakes I hope I'm the only one that this happens to but I guess for my sake I hope someone else has this problem.

Weekend Photos

I had the chance to take lot's of pictures of my little woman this weekend. Here are some of my favorites.
I think this one is my favorite. There is a new restaurant in Provo called Spark that has this fun wall that I had to take her picture in front of. She is a nut!
