Introducing Layla Victoria

It was a long wait and many days of starting contractions and stopping. Natasha was getting desperate and even did stairs to try to get Her in labor. But as they say "Babies come on their own time" and sure enough she did. Dec 7, @ 12:15, 7 pounds 8 ounces and 19 inches long. Black hair, long beautiful nails like her great grandma Walker. Seriously her nails look as if they are painted a mauve color. We are so blessed to have her in our family and of course Taylor loves being a big brother.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Yes the first real snow of the season. We woke up to four inches. Now it is really looking like December, cant wait to get the snowmobile out. We live on the mountain, therefore we can really have fun with it.

Christmas with UCMT

Every year the company I work for has a Christmas party at the ALpine Golf Club, We do secrete santa and played games and had wonderful food. This year I got Bryce's name and found a Dallas Cowboy snuggie on ebay, he was estatic about the snuggie, even though we all make fun of them. He had to wear it around the office on friday because he knew that when he got home his wife would take it. It was a great party, I won an IPod with Itunes gift cards. HURRAY!!!!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Ali and Amanda came on THursday and we had a great Ham dinner and went to the movies. Friday we all went our seperate ways and shopped, then met at Gloria's, it is an Italian place, downtown Provo. We then continued with our shopping and had our turkey on Friday evening. What a wonderful night of famiy time. Saturday we went and got out massages, had lunch, then relaxed until dinner. Dinner consisted of the best steak and drinks and a very modern restraunt in Provo. We had double raspberry martini's (non alcholic), and then we went to a comedy show. We came home and enjoyed reminissing of the kids jr high and high school days. I love to find out just what my kids did in high school. I would ask them...."and where was I when this happened?" Almost instantly the kids said..."asleep". So just because you think your teenagers are home, asleep and safe...think again, hahaha

Best Husband

Seems as if we get into our same routine over and over, we forget to tell our significant other the way we feel, how much we love them and how much we appriciate them. Gerry and I have been debating if we should buy him a new computer or get his old one fixed. I wanted to fix the old one, he wants a new one. So it really was never decided. One of my late nights at work, I called him and asked what he was doing. "I am at the mall". I am thinking to myself.....uh oh, he never goes to the mall. So come to find out, he found out that a jewelry store was having a RESETTING event. So he took my Marquise, from a previous marriage, and had it set in a beautiful penant necklace. WHen I asked him why he did this and not take the money to buy a computer, his response was "I need you more than a computer" How sweet he is....always thinking of others.

Layla's nursery

Finally....We have Layla's Nursery finished. I painted the picture on the wall with her name written in Farsi and then Natasha put a frame around it. We made all the bedding, James painted, and Grandpa put in the chandelier. So I guess you might say it was a family effort.
