Driving through the night to make a pleasant ride with Westin.

We visited Santa, this picture was just after Emily Peed..Seriously, sitting on Santas lap with wet pants. We didn't tell Santa.

Westin was very upset with us. What a great 18 month picture.

Family pictures outside of Bass Pro Shop went well.

We didn't plan the stripes and plaid. At least I didn't.

I didn't take a single picture for a week. One of my new goals is to take more pictures, especially on vacation. Lyla loves to cuddle and Aaron is the perfect candidate for it.

We spent Christmas Eve Day with teh Bair family then headed out to the Pobst Home for the evening, a delicious dinner, Nativity and Christmas Lights.

We had Mary.

and Jesus

and Joseph. They played the part,

for a while.

Christmas morning was so fun. We talked to Camille, had cinnamon rolls and enjoyed family time.

Emily got lots of great stuff. So did Westin but I never think to take a picture of it. He mostly got sport balls and some clothes.

On the 26th we all went to my parents ward to listen to Matthews talk. He did an awesome job and after we had food! We played with the trucks too.

Westin isn't really into cars and trucks but he had fun playing with his cousin Logan.

Right after church we tried for a cousin picture. Westin wasn't having it, as usual.

This is what they really looked like, I think Logan is laughing at Westin in this picture.

It snowed on the 26th after everyone left. or maybe it was the 27th. Matthew and I enjoyed running through it and Westin was sleeping.

The rest of the week was filled with Westin being sick and just hanging around. We enjoyed our trip but couldn't wait to get back home to Daddy.

One night I went to spend the night at my sisters so we could shop all day the next day. My parents watched Westin for me and did great until he saw a picture of Matt and I. He started bawling and put his face in his hands. He wasn't very happy about being left behind.

Welcome Home Elder Bair

My younger brother Matthew returned home from his mission in Washington. We headed out to Arizona leaving at 8pm and got in something early early morning. Spent that day with Allison, Emily and Lyla then headed to the airport to greet Matthew.

Kevin and Jake showed up.

Along with Zach

I was getting really nervous...I think I went to the bathroom twice!

But we made a sign that was rather large.

Everyone showed up!

Scott and Alicia adopted a child.

Oh wait, It was just Westin!

We yelled!

We Cried.

We hugged.

and we became best friends with Gracie.

First thing Matthew said to me was "I just ate peanuts can I hold him?" Thanks for looking out for him dude!

The family.


Stacy was really Excited!

The Pobst family went and watched the rest of Aaron's soccer game. Westin will sit and watch any game that involves a ball.

Aaron showing off some moves.

After Matthew walked around for about 20 mins he finally decided to sit down. Grace and Logan quickly jumped on his lap for story time.

We are so happy he is home. We missed him dearly and now he going to kick butt at Eastern Arizona!

Thanksgiving Week

After two weeks we were back in Arizona for another week. Most of our time was spent with family and doing fun things. The Bairs got together for family pictures. Matt and I took them for everyone at the Mesa Arts Center.

The Thompson Family

With Grace Girl.

Logan with the

Bair Family

We also hiked the White Tanks. I swear, everytime I go hiking with the Pobst family I never know how long of a hike we are doing. Westin konked out luckily. The weather was perfect and we also enjoyed the Butikofer Family.

Matt's Dad and Uncle Bob

And his cousin Sarah who just finish her first 2 semester at BYU-I

We also went to see Hairspray in theater which was totally awesome! Thank you Groupon for the cheap tickets.

I don't really remember much else. We ate dinner at my parents house with all the family plus Matt's family. Love doing that and not having to eat 2 Thanksgiving dinners!
