Fancy Dress!

Riley is all dressed up in her new, pretty, red dress and ready to go to Church.

Christmas in Hatch!

Christmas #2!!! After we spent some time in Albuquerque we drove down to Hatch to celebrate Christmas again with my family. Shauna, Shan and Ila were there for a couple of days and then they went home. Jason and my dad hunted quail and dove a couple of mornings and killed a couple of limits. The quail were delicious!!! Again Riley was happy playing with wrapping paper, but liked riding in her wagon. We enjoyed our time there! Thanks for all the gifts!!!

More Christmas

Here are some more pictures. We went to some Christmas light display. Riley loved it! I was so worried that she was going to be cold, but we bundled her up and she did fine. I was the only one who was freezing. I was miserable but the lights were awesome!!!!

Riley's First Christmas!

Christmas morning was great!! Riley was overwhelmed with all the presents and commotion. She loved the paper and would have been happy if we would have let her chew on it, but being the mean parents we are, we had to take it away from her. Once things calmed down she was able to play with all of her toys and loved them all!!! Leeann was so excited that her cousin Riley was there!!! Thanks for all the presents!!!

Christmas Eve

We were in Albuquerque for Christmas. Here is a picture of Riley and her first taste of Cool Whip!!!

Family Portraits

We took new family portraits over Thanksgiving. Riley just woke up from a nap so she was a little straight faced at first, but we finally got some smiles out of her.

Christmas is almost here!

I'm getting ready for Santa! I went to see Prairie Lights and saw Santa there and he let me take a picture with him. It was so cold outside so I wore my big warm jacket.


Look at me I'm walking with my lion!!! i get so excited and make this goofy face!!! You better watch out her I come!!!


This ottoman was one of the first pieces of furniture that Riley would pull herself up on. She loves playing with it and as you can see she is getting brave rocking back and forth. She has suffered a few bruises on the forehead though.

Going for a ride!

Fun Times!!!

Riley at about 8 months having some fun at home. Look at those pearly whites!!!


My parents came out for Thanksgiving this year. I figured Riley would eat until she burst at the seams but surprisingly she didn't have much of an appetite for Thanksgiving dinner. As you can see Riley would rather just chew on a paper plate!!!
The girls did do some shopping on Black Friday while the boys went deer hunting!!!
