While we were in Spokane we had the opportunity to go to the temple with my mom and Annah! It was the first time Alex and I had been back to the Spokane Temple since we were married there in 2005! It was a great experience to be there again!
Since our wedding they’ve added a new front addition on to the waiting room area so it looks a little different than the last time we were there. Spokane was the second of the small sized temples (after Monticello). Monticello has already been added on to in order to accomodate the number of people who use that temple and Spokane is a very busy temple as well!
Here we are trying to recreate our “classic” wedding pose in front of the gate! Alex kept telling jokes though…which made me laugh…and consequently blink.
Me, my mom, and Annah outside the temple.
Here was a picture I took really quickly before we hopped in the car. I thought it looked kind of pretty with the clouds in the back! (even though it’s off center)
I was really glad we had an opportunity to go the temple while we there! It is such a wonderful experience to go with so many members of our family!
So get ready for some crazy pictures of Emeline…like you’ve never seen her before…with straight hair!!!
So one morning while I was sleeping in Emmy saw Christina and Annah straightening their hair and asked if they would straighten her hair too! Here she is modleing her new do!
While they worked on her hair she kept touching it and saying “now I have flat hair like my Mommy!” Haha! Thanks Emmy! When she came in to wake me up she was so excited to show me her hair! She kept saying “look mom we are the same”! What a sweetie!
I’m sad this one is so blurry! This was her model pose!
Here’s a pic. of Kaylee with Aunt Christina! I call that Kaylee’s Park City outfit because she looks like she is ready hit the slopes!
And finally a very happy Emmy with her beauty stylist Aunt Christina!
So…I guess this is better late than never! We’ve had a couple crazy busy months here at the Baker household but I’m finally getting back into a groove and getting somethings done that I’ve been putting off! Including the blog! So without further ado…here are our pictures from our awesome trip to Spokane for Christmas!
Here’s a picture of Kaylee on the plane! It’s kind of nice that Emmy gets an actual ticket now so we get a whole row of seats and the girls can stand up on the floor and play! I can’t remember if it was this trip or the one to California but on one flight Kaylee got her head wedged under the seat! Which was a little sad but mostly funny! That is such a Kaylee thing to do!
When Christian was in Boston Children’s after he was born my Mom found this shop that made little rocking horse ornaments. So she bought one for each of us kids. Last time they were in Boston my mom got some for Emeline and Kaylee too! Here are Kaylee and Grandpa putting up Kaylee’s horse!
Here’s another shot of them putting up the rocking horse ornament!
Here’s Emeline’s ornament! And Kaylee wearing her B-day girl shirt because it was her actual B-day the day after we got to Spokane!
We had Kaylee’s big party a few days before we left home but we had a small party for her on her actual bday too! Here she is trying a little cake!
And here she is killing a little cake!
