Albright Christmas Party

I have a lot to post so bear with me. I got a new camera for christmas (thanks mom and dad!) so I took so many pictures to try to figure it out! I love my new camera and we have had a fun couple weeks! We had our annual Albright Christmas party early this year because our family has grown so big the last few years! We had it at a church with a yummy turkey dinner and performances from the younger kids!
Sienna and Markie performed I Am a Child of God. (More like Markie performed while Sienna sat there way too shy!) Markie has the TRUE Albright performing genes and Sienna is more like my family that sits back and watches!! Everyone's family did something but mine- haha! Thats why we tried to have Sienna represent! Then the kids performed the Nativity. It was fun to see everyone! Thanks grandma and grandpa for a great night!

santa claus came to town!!

We had our ward party this last weekend where Santa came to visit! Sienna was SO excited the whole day to see him! She is usually a little on the shy side with strangers so I thought for sure she wouldn't go talk to some guy with a white beard! Well she proved me wrong! When Santa arrived she was a little hesitant, but once she saw all the kids she kept trying to cut in line and run onto the stage. When it was her turn she ran to him and jumped right onto his lap and said "I want toys!" pretty loud. It was so funny~ Austin didn't know what to think but he didn't cry or anything! Needless to say Sienna CAN NOT wait for Santa to come! This age is so fun because she actually is starting to understand!
When people ask Sienna what she wants Santa to bring her she responds "Dora Toys!"

Funny story- we all know we threaten our kids with the whole "Ok I am going to call Santa.." when they are being naughty. The other night at Marc & Whit's house Aaron used that line and Sienna responded back "OK then call Santa Claus." Seriously where does this girls little 13 yr old attitude come from!?!

SnOw DaY iN VeGaS

I know everyone will post about the snow in Las Vegas but it was SO fun! It rarely happens! When I was growing up here I don't remember it ever snowing like this! Sienna sat staring out the window watching it fall in awe! She said "It's snowing like at the Utah house!" My parents house is about 5 minutes up from our house so they get A LOT more snow, so I had to take some pictures for them of their house since they aren't home! What a fun day!
Last week I was complaining because I would sweat in my sweaters- Not so much now! Bring it on- good thing I will be in Beaver for Christmas where I really may have a White Christmas!

This is in front of our house where there was just sprinkles of snow!

And these are my parents house where there was LOTS of snow to play with and make a snow man with! (we had to improvise with my dads cowboy hat!) Sienna was telling everyone at the store how she made a snowman! Too cute!

Sienna the Choc-o-holic

Last night Sienna and Aaron made a chocolate cake together. They let it cool and then Aaron put the frosting on. WELL about 5 minutes after Aaron had frosted it he comes out to the garage where I am and asks "Where's Sienna?" (he thought she was with me) Well he found her upstairs after digging her hands in the cake when no one was looking! When we asked her why she dug into the cake she replied "I was just so hungry!" She had pulled her little chair over and dug on in!
This girl is such a choc-a-holic!

You can't really tell by the picture but maybe if you make it big you can!

10 Months Old!

Austin turned 10 months old on Saturday! He is seriously the best baby EVER and I love him more every day! He is getting so fun and has such a cute personality already! We love you Austin!!

I am planning on making my blog a book soon so I decided I better get up to date!  I had so much fun in Utah with all my family a little over a week ago. Some of my adventures were:
* I went to my first BYU football game with Shani where we had great seats and lots of fun! We had to ask Rico & Ashlee what had happened a coupe times! ha!
* My poor Austin got so so sick with a wierd sleeping all the time and high fever bug for about 4 days!  I took him to quick care and found out he had pressure in his ears and he was better soon after! One night I was up for 3 hours with him screaming continually-thought I was going to die!
*I got to shop (more like look around) all my favorite stores with mom and aunt Laurie!
*Got to go to lunch with Melissa and Jennie (missed you Tara!)*My cousin Victoria who is 8 absolutely loves my kids and loves to hang out with them ALL the time giving me a break and Sienna a great friend!  She is great to take to the store because she entertains Sienna!  We also made a gingerbread house together!
*Sienna got all the attention she needs and more from aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas!  She even had a "mini-sleepover" with Jared & Jaylene in the basement to see how she would do- woke up at 4:30 a.m. screaming for me! oh well!
*Aaron flew in and we went to Thanksgiving Point Dinosaur Museum with Shani & Chris! It was a fun family time weeekend!
*Found out I am going to be an aunt to a baby BOY!! (ha and not Jared & Jaylenes- SHANI'S- (She's Sienna's aunt too ok even if we're cousins!) Brighton Christopher is making his debut in April sometime!  YAY!!
*Brooke and Wacey got engaged FINALLY!!=)
*Sienna was introduced to Christmas music and LOVES it- that's my girl!

That's all I can think of now but I love going there and seeing all my family!! Here are some pictures of our trip!

Sienna & Shani

Someone SERIOUSLY needs to send my brother to the show "What NOT to Wear"  The whole family agrees! 
My poor sicky- after i took this picture I kinda freaked thinking he was having a seizure or something!
This is why Sienna LOVES grandma & grandpas!

Mary is 8!

I can't believe I have an eight year old! Yes, Mary's birthday was back on November 3rd, but her celebrations did span about two weeks, so here are pictures from the varioius special events. Mary on the morning of her actual birthday with some presents - she was so excited to get her own scriptures. That day at school I went to her class and did a special presentation about her, she got Subway for lunch, and breakfast for dinner (her favorite food!)
Brynn, Mary, and Peyton at the family Birthday party - it was to celebrate Mary, Kori, and my birthday, but it was mostly about Mary.
On November 14th Mary had a joint friend party with her friend Sydney(shown here) because their birthdays are so close. We had it at the Primrose Retreat spa - they got a tea party, dress up and walk the runway, and make your own lip gloss. They were in girl heaven - it was so much fun!
All the girls on the end of the runway!
Mary, Sydney, Emily, and Syndey posing on the catwalk!
Mary loved the cute pink chairs and the old fashioned phone - she says she was calling "Troy"(from High School Musical) in this picture!
Mary is a great kid. She is super creative, smart, fun to talk to, and nice to her sisters (most of the time). I couldn't ask for a better first child. We all love Mary so much, and are so glad she is in our family.

Sienna with straight hair

I went back to Utah with my parents for the week of Veterans Day and Aaron flew up on the weekend to hang out with us! Can I tell you how much I love Utah?? I would move there in a heartbeat! (if i could bring all my girlfriends with me and get my husband a great job!) The leaves were all over the ground and it was cold! Not 80 degrees like when I got home! I got to wear my cute sweaters and UGG boots and loved every second of it! For our family it felt like Christmas so we put all our Christmas stuff up!! (Mostly because Sienna won't be with my family for Christmas and they are coming to Vegas for Thanksgiving so my mom put it up for her!) I will put pics up of that later but while I was there we straightened her hair which I had never done before and it was way cute! It still just wasn't my little crazy without her curls! I think Austin will have curly hair too because it curls over when I spike it up! And Sienna is eating brownie batter in one of those pics! She is a choc-a-holic like her grandpa and they always eat it together! Austin is just as bad! My dad can't resist giving him bites of his chocolate ice cream either! There is no hope for my kids! It's in their genes!

santa claus is coming to town...

I was just yelling at Sienna for kicking her brother and she looks up at me and says "Santa Clause isn't going to bring you any toys if you are not nice to me!!"
Yea Sienna I wish Santa came for moms! =) The things kids say!
The whole Santa threat works great! Aaron is on his cell phone calling him daily- let's see how long it lasts though!


Again, this is a very late post, and a very long one. Here are pictures from our entire month of October. We went to a fun little Pumpkin Patch in Springville, and then we painted our pumpkins at Grandma Keet's annual "Pumpkin Party!" And of course my darling little squad of BYU cheerleaders! We had a great Halloween!

The entire "squad" pre trick or treating.
