baby blessing

We blessed our little Gwennie girl today. We were lucky enough to have all three Steveson boys together, and Gwen's Great Grandpa Gwynn there as well. Tanner's Dad and his brother in law Daryl were also able to stand in. We are so thankful to have such wonderful family. Tanner did a wonderful job, the blessing was beautiful. Gwennie was asleep when he started and woke up during, just gazing up at her Daddy. Such a sweet baby.

I've been having a lot of fun experimenting with my new camera. It's still pretty foreign to me, but I think I'm slowly learning.

"I LIKE Christmas! I do!" -Layla

Merry Christmas!! We had a lovely morning! Our super sick Layla slept wonderfully through the night (her medicine may have helped there) and she woke up happy and ready to go! Despite a slight fever throughout the day, she's been a very good girl. We opened a few presents up here at the Steveson's and then zoomed down to my Mom's to open more! Layla was spoiled as usual and I was shocked off my rocker to open my new CAMERA!! I got an Olympus E-420! Super SUPER nice! I'm having a lot of fun playing around with it. Hopefully I can get it all figured out soon!

Cute snowman from my Mom's darling tree.

And she sleeps...

My little fairy got her own dress up box, full of fun "pretties" to wear!

She had to look at herself in the mirror.

She's still a little under the weather, poor girl.

And Little Gwen!

Christmas Eve

We were so excited to be able to spend Christmas Eve with both families. My mom did a wonderful dinner, along with our good friends the Athertons. It was a lot of fun, although I didn't take any pictures there... not sure why. Then we raced to the church for the big Dickson Christmas party. We just had to catch Santa.

I think this picture is so special. Little Gwen with Grandpa Gwynn "Santa". LOVE IT!

My poor Layla was very sick, complaining all night of an ear ache and eventually getting a fever. She smiled, if only for a moment, after opening her Tinkerbell present from Santa!

Merry Christmas!

We want to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas! I wish there was a way we could spend time with ALL of our family and friends at once. I hope everyone really enjoys this season and remembers what's really truly important.

(apparantly Layla doesn't LOVE Santa)

But I LOVE this picture! SO cute!

After Layla met Santa, ALL she could talk about was how she touched his beard. She'll get all giggly and say it over and over.

Is that snow?

We have a little girl who is anxious for snow. She doesn't know what she's in for. Although she did say, "Snow, like in Wexburg??" I think she may remember.

Sunday Morning

My girls! This was the best one of Layla.
Gwen looks a little shocked by the flash.

"Uh oh, please don't touch, Layla." (Me)

Here's her, "You Caught Me, But Aren't I CUTE?" look.

I thought this one was cute of Gwen trying to wiggle away.

She's had enough.

little photo shoot

My mother in law took Layla to get Christmas trees the other day and I thought I'd take advantage of that quiet time to take a few pictures of my little Gwen. I'm NO professional, but I like to pretend to be sometimes. I think they turned out quite cute!
