Merry Christmas!!

We took all the kids to see Santa, at Bicentennial Park. He was so cute! The pictures of the boys didn't turn out. Reese loved it and we went back a week later because she begged me to go back.

Quick apologies for what is about to be the longest post. My husband has been out of town with my computer, so here it goes. This is me and my husband obviously, and Stephanie my friend from work with her husband Mike at our salon Christmas party.
The fam. at the ward Christmas party.

My friends Halli and Kristen and I meet once a month for lunch, this was our Christmas lunch at Bellas.
Finally, Christmas morning:
Ryan kept asking to hold Jeremy, so Jeremy let him. Hopefully his legs are ok.

Every year we get knew pajamas, which is one of my favorite traditions.


Here's just a couple of Reese's toys, we need a bigger house now, she really got spoiled.

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas!

First Snow!!!

We are a little excited for C hristmas, here at the Deamer's, if you can't tell.
Ok technically it snowed back in October, but we were out of town. I have been way excited for snow, and maybe a little too much because as soon as poor Reese was done eating breakfast I got her all bundled up, and headed outdoors.
It was a little like the scene in Christmas story. I got a tad carried away with how many layers I put on her, and could barely get her boots on, on top of all the layers. I think she had fun for her first time really playing in the snow. She thinks a snowball is called a rock, and she figured out pretty quick she could eat the snow, which I was hoping she wouldn't realize, but we had fun!
That night Jeremy came home and we decided it was time to go get the tree. We didn't cut it down, but someone did, so that's about the same right?
Apparently you shouldn't expect a one year old to help decorate. She just wanted to stuff this stocking with glass balls. You may think our tree looks bare, but we are kind of Christmas tree minimalists. Hope everyone is having a fun holiday season as well!

Daddy!

Despite a migraine, Jeremy decided to get stuff ready for winter on Saturday. So he and his dad got the motion lights on, and got the 4wheeler ready with the plow. Of course that meant having a ride or two.
Yes I did drive it by the way, for the first time ever!

Reese has been really attached to Jeremy lately and if he ever leaves the room, she runs after him saying 'daddy, daddy!' So I made her come in because it was really cold. But Jeremy had one more light to set up. He stayed outside, and this is what Reese did.

"Daaaadddddyyyyyy.........ddddaaaaaaddddddddddyyyyyyy, outside!" And me, being a mean mom took pictures of it.

For those of you who don't know, I am a big Jazz fan. (I know I'm not sporty, but if you can't play you might as well watch right?) The first game I ever watched was about six years ago, when Jeremy took me for my birthday. I loved it so much I turned into a fan. On Saturday, we were able to go to a private suite. It was really nice, we had our own personal chef there cooking to order, with lots of other tasty snacks! I decided that I better get a jersey so I'm an official fan, I got Darren Williams'. On top of everything we beat them by about 30 points, so that was a bonus!
So we had an interesting morning on Sunday. Reese decided to get ready herself. She put on her eyeshadow, and her tights all by herself, what a good helper!! 
By the way I knew she was putting eyeshadow on her cheek, but my mistake was I thought that it would come off really easy so I didn't stop her - BAD IDEA!!!  Ten wipes, and an angry child later her face was mostly clean!
I'm sure you're all sick of seeing pics like this, I've got a silly child who thinks she can dress herself. I can't help but take a picture of it. By the way that is TWO pairs of tights on her head!
But we finally got all dressed! And she pronounced herself pretty. So Reese has picked up this thing of squishing down in pictures, she must think she's a highschool girl who's trying to look small or something.

Black Friday, Big Game, and Happy Reunion!!

Ever since I  have been married to Jeremy I have found the best tradition ever, Black Friday! I think it's so fun just being out early, and we usually find some pretty good deals. This is Me at Target, (not all the stuff in the cart is mine just so you know.) 

Not like you couldn't tell, but Reese was not too happy at Thanksgiving with my family. She gets a little shy.

For Jeremy's work (AFCU), they have a bonus night. It was held at the Salt Palace. As you can guess, we watched the big BYU / Utah game. It was fun, (until BYU got slaughtered.) We were able to go with, and sit by our friends Ally and Chris, which made it even more fun!
And we got to take home the pretty flowers, ( I took the Y out when we got home.)



It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Yams, ever since I lived at home it was my job to help my mom do the yams, so I just keep doing them. Now if any of you aren't aware of the blog Delicious Dishes, I am a huge fan. I have been using it quite a bit. Chelsie and her friends have the best recipes, and put them on it. I bugged her for this one, (pumpkin bars,) which turned out so good. Even Jeremy who is not too much into desserts loved it. So thanks again Chelsie!

Kris and Ashley are here! Which means the two cousins can be reunited! So far they have been playing so good together. Except now she doesn't want to leave his side, it's cute!

Hospital visits!

For those of you who don't know, Jeremy has had some serious migraines. They haven't gone away for over a month straight, so he's been to about every doctor you can think of. We just got good news though, his MRI shows nothing bad, which is very good. So we just need to figure out what is causing them so we can fix it! Today we went to the hospital, for him to have a spinal tap, everything went well, and he's home recovering right now!
Also some exciting news : Ashley and Kris are coming for a visit, which means, Ryan and Ethan are also coming!Reese has been excited, she still asks for Ry Ry sometimes, so I am excited to see  how they act together.  When he was here before they played really well.  It should be a fun holiday season! I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

Accessories, accessories!!!

It's official! We have a bed. It only took us five and a half years, but we found one! ( We did have a bed, just not a frame.) Apparently I'm picky and we've looked a LOT, but we finally found this one at Sparrow's (they have good deals, by the way.)
We heard it was going to snow last Tues. So Reese and I went out to do a little raking.
Reese has officially started to dress herself, she grabs random things and puts them on. It's funny because she's only 19ish months, I thought she would have to be about 4 before she started doing this. And the hard thing is once she decides she's going to wear something, she gets obsessed with it. Pretty much once I get sick of whatever it is I have to take it off and hide it quick, and hope she forgets after a while. She wants to leave coats on all day, or random accessories she finds around the house. If I take them off she says " On, on, on, please, please, pretty!"
This little 'beaut' of an outfit, I actually let her wear to the babysitter, so she wore it all day. I had the dress on her, which, yes is a little loud on it's own, but I heard her in her room saying "pretty!" I opened the door to this lovely little outfit. She kept walking around saying,"purse, hat, pretty!"( Yes, very pretty, or not so much.)
Jeremy and I went to the Jazz game the other day, and bought her this Boozer jersey. Little did we know that she would want to wear it three days in a row, plus to bed. (Oh well, at least I'm going to get my money's worth right?)
Pig nose, - always a classic. ( I like to wear mine out on the town.) I have no idea where that even came from. Why do I even have a pig nose? 
No joke, she did this all by herself! She was trying to find her yellow pair of "eyes" and I found these for her, and so apparently if you can't find the ones you want you might as well wear as many a possible to make up for it. ( You would think that would be annoying, but she really wore them for about 3-4 hours, until Jeremy took them off , and I hid them)
Well, you can't say her outfits are dull!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!





Here's all the girls in their matching Halloween outfits. (Hadley, Reese, Kennedy)
Tayler, a.k.a. Dodo, volunteered at our ward's little Halloween carnival. It was the best fish pond they'll ever have.
Later we went to pick out pumpkins, I had this image in my head that she would be able to pick out the pumpkin she wanted. But when we got there, there was only 5 left and we wanted 3, so.... didn't really get to choose so much, but hey  at least we got some pumpkins, right?
On Halloween day I took Reese, Hadley, and Kennedy, around to Darlene's work, then Jeremy's, then Heather's, and then Lee's Market.  Every time we got in and out of the car, was..........well, we'll just say a bit of a challenge. Hadley had to be stripped down every time, she loved that - and Reese, just halfway stripped down, and Luckily Kennedy could just stay in her costume all day long. But getting three babies out of the car is hard, even if you don't have to change their outfits. Also I got a lot of looks, and I knew people were thinking I was crazy, so here and there I would say, "those two aren't mine!" The girls were good, but I was a bit tired by the end of the day.
By the way Reese is a lady bug if you couldn't tell, I made her tutu, Hadley is the peacock, and Kennedy is Tinkerbell.
We finally carved our pumpkins, I decided I would be helpful and clean out all the guts out of all the pumpkins, but too bad I'm not smart and I started with the tallest pumpkin up on my table and...

Broke my kitchen light. Yeah, I guess you're not supposed to knock glass light fixtures with big, carving knifes, how was I to know?  A big chunk of the glass just fell right off, I didn't even hit it hard at all, just a little bonk. I was so mad at myself. Luckily Jeremy was way nice about it.
Reese caught on to Trick or Treating very quickly, also she never had said the word candy before, (because I don't really give her candy,) but she sure learned it fast that day.
Reese, Dodo, and Jeremy in front trick or Treating.
This is Reese with her Great Grandpa who lives next door, He's so sweet and we go visit him pretty much every day.
