Out with the with the new. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy New Year!!!!
This year has been amazing....with the birth of Kaia in May, our family is complete. We're having a blast being parents to such a beautiful, fun-loving, happy, independent baby girl. She will be 8 months old in 2 weeks and is babbling up a storm, trying to sing (our little American Idol already!), stands up on her own, is trying to walk...she is SUCH a J-O-Y! We hope 2010 brings utmost happiness, love, luck, prosperity and blessings to our family and friends across the miles. xoxoxo

Mamma and baby K...

Christmas Kaia and our cousin Luz~

Look at these adorable leggings...and the BOOTS WITH THE FUR!!!!

Kaia dolled up in her pretty Christmas dress. Gotta love the huge Christmas bow! Yes, she is a Utah girl. :)

Cruising in style in her little Disney cart that Grandma & Grandpa Le got her.

Christmas morning with my babe. Yes, I'm wearing a mask, because Brian & I had horrible head colds.

Opening her very first present on Christmas Eve (The Night Before Christmas book from my lovely friend Rana).

*****Pretty blue eyes*****

Playing in cords, light sockets, under name it-- she's into it!

Fell asleep in her activity chair while watching cartoons.

Trying to give her puppy Bo (not really a puppy-- 15 yrs old!) some kisses.

With her playing of her favorite "toys." She has been mesmerized by the colors and flipping of cards ever since she was born. Perhaps she'll be a card dealer in Vegas? Let's hope not.

Count your many blessings

We were very fortunate this year to celebrate two....the first from Wed-Fri at Jennifer & Curtis's family's cabin in Idaho where we played in a TON of snow. The cabin is nestled up in the woods in Island Park, Idaho-- 30 min from Yellowstone. We had so much fun playing and eating and lounging. The second was spent at Brian's cousin's house yesterday where our little baby girl sported this dainty outfit, complete with a matching bow. We love and are blessed to have such an amazing family & little girl to share it with.

Kaia & Beckham excited for Thanksgiving dinner...

Our baby in her Thanksgiving outfit ready to play in the snow for the first time! She LOVED it. We bundled her up and rode on trails in our side-by-side teryx and then she went on a sled with Curtis & Beckham and was all smiles! We bought her a puffy pink snowsuit when we got home so she can enjoy the snow this winter.

Kaia sooooo excited to be playing with new Leggos.

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner (green bean casserole...YUM-O!)

Cuddling with our little munchkin~

Playing in the snow....there was TONS!!! We rode our side by side Teryx (ATV) and rode snowmobiles. Brian wants to go buy one now...go figure!

Sleepy Bear.

My mother-in-law Beckie was watching Kaia the other night at our house. I was WICKED tired, so was in my room trying to nap for an hour and Brian was showering. Kaia was fussy/tired, so Beckie went into the kitchen for a minute or two to make her a bottle.....and came back to this:
Haaaaaaaaaaa! Kaia had fallen asleep, sitting up, her head resting on her teddy bear. I woke up to Beckie's laughter and promptly took pictures. My sweet little sleepy bear!

Brunette & a bathed baby

Fun Fall hair! Since having Kaia, I've been shedding hair all over the house like crazy. It's gross actually. It's in everything, everywhere. Brian told me to chop it all off-- at least shoulder length, but I looooove my long hair, so I cut 3 inches off yesterday and added tons of dark to the blonde. Pretty drastic, but we'll see if I can get used to it, because it looks awesome!

My friend Lindsay from Vermont bought Kaia the cutest pink robe with matching booties. What a little super model!

Kaia's first Halloween was last night. She was an adorable, little pink butterfly. We trick-or-treated with Brian's siblings and their kids. The weather was perfect and it made me miss my childhood, going door to door with family & friends.
p.s.-- Kaia is cutting her first teeth already! Two on the bottom.

Our little pumpkin posing in a pumpkin patch. Isn't she the cutest?!

Okay...this one is HILARIOUS! We asked Brian's mom's niece (who has Alzeimer's and was kinda out of it last night) to take a "family" Halloween picture of all of us. There were 10 of us in this picture...and this was the end result:

My simple bunny costume. I had to wear something!!!!

Mamma bunny & baby butterfly loves.

....all worn out from trick-or-treating (she actually was asleep the whole time we took her around).

We ended our Halloween at the movies watching SAW 6 with Brian's sister Jen & hubby Curt and cousin Cindy & hubby Adam. Sooooooo gory!

Little Miss Magic.

Brian's close family friend Lan took some fabulous pictures during Kaia's baby blessing party. My most favorite shot of Little Miss below:
