January has been so crazy!!!! A couple weeks ago Emily took off and landed wrong in a leap at dance. She couldn't straighten out her knee and she was in a lot of pain. Steve got her into a sports med dr. the next day. She had lots of xrays and a ultrasound. They looked good so we scheduled her for a MRI a few days later. Meanwhile she's on crutches......and a knee brace.
Fortunately the MRI came out good except she has swelling around her knee cap. The dr. gave her a shot of cortizone. I can't believe how far in the needle went into her knee. I'm so glad she wasn't looking while they gave it to her. Kinda freaky. Now she is doing physical therapy and is slowly starting to dance again. No leaping for a while though.
During all of this it was Asher's birthday (Liam's 1st birthday was earlier this month. Happy Birthday Liam!!!!). He wanted to go bowling.
And then it was Courtney's birthday. We had it at Christopher and Lesa's place. Luke was able to come too and it was so much fun celebrating, eating and talking.
Well.........here are a bunch of pictures from Christmas in random order. Timothy, Jessica and their cute kids came in Sunday afternoon. Once they got here we hit the ground running. Monday we took front runner to Temple Square to see the lights. I thought it would be fun for Kingston to ride on a train. :)
Me and Emily. Liam is such a cuddly little guy and loved cuddling with Aunt Lesa.
Mika thinks she's a lap dog and would take advantage of anyone who would let her be one.
Nathan got a cool new beard for Christmas.
Mika, the lap dog, with Jaron.

Darci has one of the sweetest voices I've ever heard. She said "swag money" for us.
Liam and Aunt Courtney......and Mika being a lap dog.
Everyone played guitar hero.
And we celebrated Liam's 1st birthday. How did he grow up so fast? We had sooooooo much fun having the whole family together. I love all my kids, my in law kids and my grandkids!!! So grateful we could all be together!!!!!
