Our B-Ball Star!

Joshua started Jr. Jazz basketball a couple weeks ago.  He is LOVING it!  We bought him some new basketball shoes for his first practice and he told me, "Mom, I really think I can jump higher in these shoes!"  He's been working on his dribbling, passing and shooting.  The games are . . . hilarious.  We're lucky if they shoot at the right basket.  That's what makes it fun though.  With three boys, I'm guessing I'll spend a lot of time in the bleachers.  I'm putting the old cheer skills to good use now.  GO JOSHUA!

It's a Boy!

Just after Christmas I had my 20-week ultrasound and we learned our little one is a boy!  Joshua is VERY excited to have another brother, and he is certain the baby waved at him during the ultrasound.  Joshua also has a name picked out . . . Luke Skywalker Davis . . . There's about a 0% chance of that happening.  Olivia was disappointed for about 5 seconds, then happy to realize she doesn't have to share her princess crown with anyone.  Jason said it's probably for the best . . . Livi is a lot of girl for a little sister to live up to.  Ethan pretty much has no idea what's going on, but we're certain he and the baby will be good buddies.  As for me . . . It just feels right, like our family is complete.  I'm so grateful to know he's healthy and growing.  I'm also excited to shop for more of these in the future . . .
I mean, COME ON!  How can I resist?

Dalby Family Pictures

We had Dalby family photos taken while we were in Colorado for Christmas.  And of course I'm pregnant . . . it's a family joke that we only do pictures when I'm big and pregnant.  I'm happy to pass that torch to someone else in the future. =)

All 16 of us:

The girls:

Our attempt at a grandkids picture.  It was seriously laughable:

The original sibs:

The adults at our best:

A Colorado Christmas

We spent Christmas in Colorado with my entire family- all 17 of us.  We had such a wonderful time.  There really is nothing better than a cozy, white Christmas in Colorado . . . it is so beautiful there.  About a million pictures of our fun . . .

Cheering for Uncle Brad at his basketball tournament.  Go Titans!

Decorating sugar cookies with our well-loved sugar cookie recipe (We had to take a picture of it this year before it disintegrates into thin air):

Fun hanging out at home:

Joshua with his purchase from Lego Land.  He was more excited about Lego Land than Santa Claus- the highlight of his trip:

Matching jammies from Grandma Dalby:

Decorating gingerbread houses:

A visit to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.  It's a Christmas-themed amusement park in Colorado Springs.  We had so much fun!

It was so good to spend Christmas with all our Dalby family.  Happy Holidays everyone!  We love you!!
