Every other year BYU plays UNM in Albuquerque so we get to go see the cougars play!  This year it was in November and we went with a big group from our ward!  We had a lot of fun, and while the score was way closer than it should have been BYU ended up winning! Phew!

Alex and Emeline enjoying the game!

Here’s Kaylee snacking on a pom-pom!  Emmy and Kaylee are excellent cheerleaders and Emeline even knows the cougar fight song!  Both of them had fun showing off the cheer skills for Grandma and Grandpa Baker!


Emmy and Kaylee have started getting jealous if someone holds just one of them so they often pile on together!  Here they are having fun smiling at all the people sitting behind us!

And finally it was time to go home!  🙁  But here is a cute picture of Kath holding Emmy on the way out to the car!  We’ll be back in 2011 for more!

Grandma Kath’s Birthday Party!

Grandma Kath was in Idaho for her birthday and we were in Disneyland so we had her party when we all regrouped in New Mexico!  Here’s a few pics from the party!

Grandma Kath picked Carrot cakes and she said she wanted lots of nuts!  So in addition to us being nutty we added some to the cake!

Here’s Grandma blowing out her candles!

In preparation for her own birthday Kaylee enjoyed a small piece of Grandma’s cake!  Happy belated Birthday Kath!!  Emmy can’t wait to see you again now that we are back in New Mexico!

Wake up sleepy head!

Emmy and Kaylee love to have their picture taken!  Here are some random pictures of us playing around!

Kaylee got to sit in my bed one morning while I finished getting ready!  She thought she was queen of the world!

It didn’t last long though.  She held still maybe 5 minutes and she was on the move again! Here she is about to pounce on the camera!

Here’s Kaylee just chillin’

Emmy helped me get Kaylee up and ready!  She is a really good helper now.  She always says things like “Kaylee Sweetie, no no”.  Kaylee follows her every move and they both love playing together!  It’s pretty cute!

Kaylee laughing at Emmy through the crib!

Look familiar?  We have a pic of Emmy that looks just like this!  I will have to do a side by side post!

Emmy took this picture and I was totally amazed at what a good job she did so I thought I’d throw it in here!  She is getting pretty good at using a camera!


So I was really sick and wound up in the ER with a super high fever over Halloween so we didn’t do a whole lot.  Luckily Alex, Grandma Kath, and Grandpa Layman came to the rescue and helped the girls have a fun time!

Here’s Emmy dressed up like Snow White for her Halloween party at school.  Grandma Kath helped get her all ready!  Emmy was pretty excited!

Los Alamos has a downtown trick or treat every year.  This year it was the night before Halloween.  Alex and my dad took the girls for a bit but it was really cold so they didn’t last too long!  Emmy was tired of her snow white dress up so by this point she had changed into a sleeping beauty costume and Kaylee is sporting a super cool witch costume Aunt Christina bought!

I felt a lot better by the ward party so we dressed up and went!  Here’s Goldilocks and the 3 bears!  Daddy bear, baby bear and blinky bear!  🙂

Emmy and Kaylee were both a little dazed from all the weekends activities at this point!  What cute girls!  They got a lot of candy!  In fact right now Emmy is looking at this picture and asking me for some of her candy and there is probably some of it left somewhere in the house…

So this picture is kind of blurry but I just though Kaylee was such a cute little baby bear I wanted to share!  Happy Halloween 3 months ago everyone! 🙂
