Fashion Show! Fashion Show! Fashion Show with Jake!

Just showing off his cute new outfit

future male model right here

how you doing???

Christmas this year was great! Santa gave Jake plenty of good stuff and we were very blessed. I love this season, spending time with family and friends and remembering the Savior and all he does for us.

These were some pics I just couldn't resist sharing...

Christmas Around the House

Every year my mom goes above and beyond to make our home all cute and Christmasey.
Hopefully one day my house will be this cute at Christmas time...

One of the Campbell Family traditions is to make gingerbread houses a few days before Christmas...they turned out really good but took almost three hours to make. The one on the left is mine, middle is cousin Callie's, and right one is Chelsey

Some cute home decor

My mom's famous "mini houses" (they only take about 60 hours to set up)

This pic doesn't quite do it justice...but it really is beautiful at night.

I'm Dreaming of a non-white Christmas...

Our annual family Christmas Party and white elephant gift times as always...Jake got to be baby Jesus(have you ever seen a bigger newborn), and as you can tell he was really excited about the opportunity

my new do

So I attempted taking Christmas pics with Jake...I got ONE decent pic out of about 35! Getting Jake to hold still for more than 5 seconds is darn near impossible.

Photo of the Week...make-up

Since I was a slacker these past few weeks I decided to post two pics...
(for some reason it got cut off a little but you get the idea)

I will no longer complain that:

I have to live at home...

that my bed is too hard...

that my feet are too cold...

my car's heater is broken...

when I can't find the tv remote...

that my clothes are too tight...

Photo of the Week

One of the reasons I love my job as a gymnastics coach is getting to listen to all the random, funny things kids say. Here's a conversation I had a few days ago with one of my six-year-old gymnasts:

Me: hey Kaitlyn, how did you get to be so flexible?

Kaitlyn: I have a pet snake.

Photo(s) of the Week

So...I've decided to do a "Photo of the Week" that will either be a "blast from the past" picture or some other photo I think is really neat.

This week's photo: my little sibs Brendan, Braden, and Chelsey rub-a-dub-dubbing in the tub.

They're... Great!

I think the pictures speak for themselves...Jake does not want to be a tiger for Halloween...sorry grandma.

Finally...Fall is Here

So today was the first day in several months that it finally felt like southern California instead of the Saharah Desert. I hadn't worn pants or sweatshirts in so long I almost forgot where I had stored them. And since it was my day off, and Jake and I were bored, we decided to go to the park.
