It has been a long time since I blogged...even though i dont think anyone reads it but thats ok. Well a few weeks ago I went up to Orem with Brooklyn just me and her for a few days to take some presents up and to bring a ton back to cedar. I loved going to up to orem. I love seeing family! The Conrad's had the Christmas party at the ranch this year so Brooklyn got to sit on Santa's Lap! (if anyone has those pics please send them to me). The party was fun and of course i loved seeing everyone.
For Christmas we went down to Vegas. It was different but very fun. It was my first Christmas away from home and Brooklyns first Christmas. I dont know if it was just me but this year didn't really feel like Christmas... I missed going up to temple square and listening to the Mormon Tab sing and going and looking at christmas lights and singing songs by the piano, reading chirstmas stories, caroling and everything else. I definitly need to start doing traditions in our home.

Vegas was really fun. We did a white elephant game christmas eve and read the book A christmas Dress for Ellen. One of my favorites. We just hung out with the family and played lots of games. Ammon's brother and his wife took us out for Ammon's birthday and we went to dinner and had a blast with them. Ammon's other brother Seth and his wife blessed there little baby while we were there. SHE IS TINY! i think she's 5 pounds now. Crazy.
When we got back we had all our presents to open here. It was fun and we got spoiled rotton. Ammon got a nice electric razor and aqcua di gio cologne, snow boots, a few games, shirts, the bean game, and fruit snake. i got a gingerbread house, a glider FINALLY!! i've been wanting once since i was pregnant and I LOVE IT!, lots of clothes, the book The Hunger games which i already read and LOVED! and my favorite present of all was what my dad gave me. He gave us DVD's of all our families home videos. I love watching our family home videos and the memories are so special to me. The present meant alot to me and I watch them all the time.

So ammon turned 26 and Brooklyn is now 6 months old. She is growing and growing and can now sit up then get to her tummy and almost get back to sitting up again. She is no where near crawling but if i put her on her knees she starts rocking :) she is such a sweetheart but is getting a little attitude. She is very demanding. But i love her :)
Well our new years sucked... like i have said before we have no life or friends in cedar so we watched a movie and went to bed at like 11. i know we are super lame. oh well.
Oh we also took family pictures so here are some of those! Oh and i know this is kinda lame but can you post a comment on this one if I dont have you already on my friends and family contact list.. thanks!

You guys are so cute! Especially that little lady of yours. What a doll!
Christmas isn't quite the same when you're not spending it with your family doing the things your used to doing, is it? I don't no if it ever gets easier either.
