Liv and Tommy

Love these two!


{January 1, 2010}
Tyler starting playing bejeweled and got hooked!
He even stayed up until 1 in the morning one night...
so I left baby Liv with Dad and went to bed with the boys.

{December 30, 2011}
Playing with the Christmas Train.

All the Grandkids

{December 30, 2011}
Tommy was the only one behaving :)

Cute face

{December 29, 2011}
He loves to pull faces when I get the camera out.

Drill and Fill

{Christmas Afternoon}
Amy got the boys the drill and fill playdoh set for Christmas.
I think Tyler liked it more than the boys.
And it was driving him crazy that the colors were getting mixed!

Name and Blessing

{December 25, 2011}
Olivia Noble Owens
By her father, Tyler Mark Owens

By the Authority of the Holy Melchezedek Priesthood, we take this infant in our arms to give a name and blessing.  
The name chosen for her is Olivia Noble Owens.  
Olivia, I bless you with the knowledge that you are a child of God.  
You have been blessed with a righteous mother and your life will be blessed to learn from her. 
I bless you that your body will grow and be healthy.
You are blessed with the talents of nurturing, these talents will bless you as a mother and in your ability to love and care for your family.  
You will be a righteous influence on your family.
You will have an influence on your brothers and because of your example they will learn to love and respect women.
We pronounce these blessings in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.  

Christmas was on a Sunday this year,
I thought it as a perfect day to bless Livi.
Tyler did a great job and I am so blessed to have a worthy husband.
We had lunch after church at my mom's.
The boys were so tired and as soon as we got home they changed into their jammies and wouldn't change back.
I just wish I had taken a picture of Liv and Tyler together.

Christmas Morning

Ryan got ahold of my camera and took tons of pictures of his new toy!

Christmas Eve

{December 24, 2011}
I wish now that I had taken more pictures!

Bowl Game

{December 22, 2011}
Tyler and I went to the ASU vs. Boise State Bowl Game.
We went with Chance and Jordan Johnston.
It was my first time meeting Jordan!
We had a great time with them.
Hopefully they don't think we are too old or weird :).


{December 4, 2011}
 First time to church.
Thanks for the adorable Christmas Dress Allan and Misti!

Santa jammies

Grandma Jan broke out the Christmas jammies early this year.
I think the boys were pretty excited about them!


{December 16, 2011}
The boys got to go to the Owens' ward Christmas party.
This is the most impressed they have been with Santa.
I love the picture of Ryan laughing.

Elf on the Shelf

After watching the Elf on the Shelf movie, they thought our 
Elf should have the same name, so they renamed him.
I was sad when the boys went to Utah, 
I felt like I was letting them down.
(Ryan missed his Christmas Program and Party at school 
and two T ball games)
I was sad we wouldn't be able to do our Christmas traditions together.
But our families are wonderful and picked up the pieces,
 and I was able to recover while they were gone.
I sent the elf hidden in their suit case.
They were SO surprised when Grandma explained that the Elf had followed them all the way from Arizona.
It has been such a fun tradition, and I can't wait to do it again next year.

Everyone loves a new baby!

{December 16, 2011}
I had surgery to fix my umbilical hernia.
Alli had already taken the boys to Utah so we wouldn't have to worry about them.
Tyler's Aunt Chrissy helped us so much!
She even kept Liv over night so we could sleep.
This is Chrissy's father-in-law, Jim and he made sure they brought the baby to their house.
So sweet!
Thanks a million Chrissy!
We couldn't have survived without you!

T Ball

{October 22-December 17, 2011}
The Coyotes.
Ryan played on his 2nd T Ball team.
He loved playing this season and
 he was one of the best players on his team.
He has to dad to thank for that.
Tyler plays ball with him a lot.
