January & Our Little Guy 2015

What has January looked like for us? It's looked crazy! We have had way too much fun! Breck is coming up to a year in a half and he has brought us SO much joy! He has gained such an amazing personality and keeps us laughing ALL day long! He doesn't say too many "real" words but he has a language of his own. He talks all that time! He uses his arms and hands when he talks and fluctuates his voice, it's the cutest thing in the world! He is OBSESSED with cars and trains and wheels. Anything he can get his hands on becomes a vehicle of some sort. His favorite is to watch videos on youtube of Rzr's. He could watch them for hours if we ever let him. He is into following and copying and loves to learn new things. His favorite foods are yogurt, Cheez It's, graham crackers and fruit. He eats almost everything and loves his veggies and fruit! His favorite drink is water and milk, only as long as it is warm! He is just the best! We just love that he is all ours! He has 6 teeth, 4 on top and 2 on bottom and is in and out of teething which hopefully means he is gaining more! He loves his blankets and it's the cutest thing in the world!
Here is bubba riding his backhoe around the house

Look at that cute adorable kid right now!

He has a new obsession with headbands and I'm sorry but I think it's the cutest thing in the world!!!

He is our little climber! He loves to climb ANYTHING he can!

This is the face these two gave me. Presten finished changing Breck's diaper picked him up and both Presten and Breck let one rip! Hahah oh man, these two gassy boys are lucky I love them so much!

Every store needs to have these amazing carts with steering wheels! It made shopping so wonderful!

I love these two, I love them a lot!

We have had some playdates this month! Breck & Jane got to play together!

So did Lydia and Breck!

He even convinced Uncle Tracy to get down on the floor and play with him! So cute!

Gangsta' Baby!

Here he is all dapper and ready for church! Suspenders and bowties are just the cutest, and I love them on my little guy! How did I get so lucky to have such a cute little guy in my life?! 

One Sunday we had a fun night of games! If you haven't played curses than you def should! It's a great game for a group of people!
Here's Tianna having to place Jared in handcuffs bahaha

Presten having to cheer and shout for joy! Hah good times and great laughs!

Aunt Tia likes to get on top of the truck and likes to drive around while Breck is in the truck. Probably the cutest thing ever!

They have too much fun together!

I could sit and watch him all day play with his cars! I love him so much!

Breck trying to stretch like mommy!

He gets PURE joy out of riding his horse!

The end of January was the infamous Snowdown Week in Durango. This year the theme was "Steampunk" and it was AWESOME!!!! Best snowdown I think! The parade, the floats, the costumes etc. were all stupendous! Everything was just so awesome! I really enjoyed it! Breck LOVED the parade, even if it was snowing/raining the whole time haha 
My GQ model baby!

Family snowdown time!

Super cute couple! Soon to be Mr&Mrs!!

After the parade we all headed to Zia's for dinner and Breck and Nate got to entertain all of us!

On the way home Jared made to make the night even more entertaining and go off the road hahaha 

Our January has been kind of all over the place but it's been full of fun! We love our little boy and are so happy that he gets to be ours!

Tianna Bridal Shower

Tianna is getting married and I, along with Nicole Blake (Tianna's soon to be Sister-In-Law) had the privilege of throwing her bridal shower! We had so many thoughts and ideas of what we wanted to do, we had so many themes that we wanted to go with! It was all way too much fun! We had so many ideas that it was hard to decide which path we wanted to take. We finally decided on a color scheme and then from there came our theme! The colors we chose were black and gold. Our theme...The Great Gatsby! Oh my goodness it was SO much fun to plan and put together! After setting everything up, it looked PHENOMENAL if I do say so myself! We did the event on a Friday night so the moms would have their hubby's home to watch the kids so they could come and enjoy a ladies night out!

Here is the invite that I made. 

Here are some pics of the decorations

The black and gold beads for each of the guests, along with feathered head bands that Tianna and my Mom made. Each guest got to take home either a headband or a bead. This is what they got to wear when they arrived and was their party favor. 

When the guests first entered there was a table by the door with an ipod that had a slideshow of the couples engagement and proposal photos. Next to that were pieces of paper with a bowl. Each guest was asked to write down a memory they have of the bride, but to not put their name on it. After everyone was done eating, the bride grabbed the whole and head to read each memory aloud and guess who wrote down the memory! It was so fun to hear other peoples memories and some of them were hilarious! It was great to get to know everyone as well!

Dinner...let's just say it was AMAZING!!! I had so many wonderful people offer their services to help me, the friends I have in my life are THE BEST!!! We had soups and desserts. My Aunt Suzy made a Loaded Baked Potato Soup, Nicole made a chicken taco soup, and my mom and I made a White Chicken Chili soup and a Taco Soup. Everything turned out delicious! I made homemade rolls, and then for dessert Makena and Pam made brownies, I made cookies, and Shea made cupcakes! It was a hit! After dinner we stared with the "1st Memory" game, and then gave everyone a break. They grabbed desserts and took pictures in the photo booth! 

After that we played the "Fiance Quiz Game" I had met with jared and asked him questions and he gave me answers. I then played the video for everyone. I asked Tianna the same questions and she had to give me the answer that Jared gave me in the video. For every answer she got wrong, she had to put a piece of double bubble gum in her mouth, at the end of it she had quite the mouth full! That was a fun game for everyone to get to know more about the couple. After that the bride opened her gifts. 

Here is Tianna's "Bride" Crown! The star even lights up! It was adorable!

"HE PUT A RING ON IT" Banner that I made with the help of my Aunt Suzy!

Yes we even had a photo booth! Bear with us as the camera was set on a timer and took 5 photos at a time! We had lots of fun with them!

Here is a group shot of everyone who attended! I believe we had about 40 people! It was so wonderful to spend such a fun evening with such amazing women

Thank you all for an AMAZING evening and for loving and supporting Tianna! You all are such a blessing in our lives and we are so blessed to have such a great system of love and support! Love you all SOOOOO much!!!!!
