Decorating for Christmas

The girls and I flew out Nov. 30th so we wanted to get in as much Christmas spirit as we could before we left. The day after Thanksgiving we pulled out and put up all our Christmas decorations.... One box. :) It may not be a lot but we still love it.

Emery slept through most of it.


We had a great Thanksgiving this year. It was pretty easy going. I didn't have to make the turkey this year, which was a relief. I did however, somehow managed to ruin mashed potatoes. I think my potatoes could have been used as weapons if molded correctly. Needless to say, not many people ate them. ha ha. We didn't get many pictures. Emery spent most of the time throwing up everywhere and pooping through her clothes and spare clothes, so we spent all of our time cleaning up after her.

It's been a pretty hectic year but we know we have so much to be grateful for. The crazier life gets the more I notice and appreciate the simple and little blessings. We have been blessed immensely and are so grateful for all the blessings that Heavenly Father sends our way. Especially grateful to be together and loving life here in Puerto Rico.

San Juan Feria

This year we decided going to the fair was an absolute must. We felt we owed it to Afton after last years fiasco...
Last year we decided that we were going to the fair. We talked with the Boss's and decided we would all go together. For a week straight we drove by the fair and told Afton "were going to the fair in a couple of days with tyler and tiffy." She was so excited. Finally the weekend came and we all headed to the fair together... we didn't get far before we hit awful, and I mean AWFUL traffic. The fair was really only about a mile from our house but there we were gridlocked and stuck for about an hour right infront of it. Poor Afton could see the lights and just kept crying that she wanted out of her carseat, wanted to go to the fair, was hungry and we were stuck and couldn't move. All the flashing lights were just taunting her! Finally we made it into the parking lot all got out and got up the ticket office and realized it was 30 dollars a person!!! What!!! So we couldn't afford it and turned around and left. We had to explain to Afton that we just didn't have enough money. Instead we decided we would take her to a movie. So we started to getting her excited about seeing a movie. We stopped at Burger King to get some food. While in line Afton fell off some railing and hit the floor. Luckily she was fine but not very happy about the fall. After eating we walked over to the theatre meanwhile pumping her up for how cool the movie was going to be. We got there and started to order our tickets when we realized it was the Spanish version and the english was not until 10:00 p.m. We decided to call it a night a head back to our place. It was clear the stars were just not aligned for us that night.

We felt bad about that night ever since and vowed we would take Afton to the Fair to make up for her terrible night the year before. We figured out that tickets were about half price during the weekdays and planned to go on one of those nights. This year it turned out much better. She loved going on all the rides and was running from ride to ride.

She obviously didn't not like the free fall ride. ha ha.

Loved the carousel
great view from the top!

So glad we finally made it to the fair!

Volleyball Game

We went to a friend from churchs volleyball game. Hopefully next year when Logan isn't as busy we can go to more games. Poor Emery kept waking up everytime they would blow the horn, scream, and whistle. Regardless, we all had a great time together.

Louster the Pukester

Just a little loving nickname we have for our Emery girl. Can you guess why?

I've seen better days.

regardless of how much she throws up on all of us, we still love her all the same.

Friday Night Dinner with Friends

Another Friday, another place to eat. We tried going to a Taco shop that is supposed to be amazing but after driving 40 minutes we got there and they were closed for the night.... no way, not in Puerto Rico! (sarcasm) We tried convincing them to open up for us but failed and so we went to the next place we could find and it all worked out just fine. We filled up the whole restuarant with our little group.

4 month comparison

Look a likes?

4 Months

4 Months sure went by so fast. What a sweet heart and good baby Emery is. Now if we could only get her to sleep through the night and to stop throwing up all the time, she would be the easiest baby! She looks so much like her big sister Afton and they love each other to death. Lets hope that lasts! :)

Sleep Away

I love it when babies sleep with their bums in the air.

Park with Friends

We went to a new park for Sweet Sawyers birthday party. Erin went over and above to make it a cute celebration. We had a great time! Happy #1 Sawyer!

The girls.... Emery, Elsa, Mia. I don't know how they could possibly sleep in that heat and humidity!

First Bug Bite

It was only a matter of time here in PR!

Dance Class

She loves her dance class with Miss Amy!

3 years and 3 months old

I'm pretty sure I have the cutest and sweetest girls in the world! Love them!

No Emery... No picking your nose!
