Tis the season of many parties, gatherings, meeting old St. Nic and many other joyous occasions. This has by far been the best holiday season of my life and sorry for the outrageous amount of pictures but I just want to share our experiences with you all!

Shakobe meeting Santa for the first time. I was a little nervous he would pull on santa's beard like he does his daddy's but we were lucky he was more interested in ringing santa's bells on his suit!

Kanyon and Saylor waiting to see Santa to show Shakobe to not be afraid. (Even though Saylor refused to look at Santy Claus.)

Kynlee and Shakobe trying to plan a way to get ahold of santa's fancy bells.

Santa took a minute to talk to Bryson and Rylie. This busy guy remembered what these kids have wanted in years passed I was really impressed.

Shakobe was amazed by santa just sat there and looked him over. lol

This year in my dads family we did something different and had a ugly christmas sweater contest. I loved it and here are the contestants

My little Fabulously hideous sweater wearing family!! I know some of you will want to barrow my pretty number im wearing but sorry its off limits!!

At the party my aunt Judy had a horse drawn wagon that her Grandsons took people on wagon rides. it was so much fun. thanks Judy.

Little man loved it so much he fell asleep without his bink or anything. He is his grandpa's boy thats for sure.

My friend made this awesome cake for brysons 13th birthday. She did a great job so if any of you ever need a sweet cake for any occasion let me know.

Gregg and babies at Brysons birthday party.

Grandpa Richard had a fun work christmas party we were able to go to. It was at the fun park with another visit from santa who brought a extra special treat he loved. a plastic candy cane full of candy but little man loved the plastic. lol. Thanks grandpa for such a great time. Oh and HAPPY birthday today from your little buddy.

That same day was my grandma childs Christmas party in brigham. Gregg helped say open her present from them.

Shakobes first christmas present he got to open. He loved the paper. My grandparents are amazing. Me and Jamie figured it out and they have 5 children, 16 grandchildren, and soon to be 32 great grandchildren. WOW. and every year they get us all presents which they dont need to we are happy just to spend time with them but grateful for all they give us.

Soaking up all the attention from the Child family!

More attention!

More more attention!!

Extreme amount of attention which he was very satisfied with. Looked at me like "Look at this mom"

Merry Christmas all!! Love the Rigbys

As for thanksgiving day everyone pitched in bringing dishes for the big meal. Thanks everyone for all the delicious food the day would not be ccmplete without each and every one of you. We had games and also made some fun christmas crafts. These type of things are my very favorite things to do for those I care about; thank you for filling our home with so much love

So very tired after a long day of partying as you can see just looking at his face!l

Halloween and Simon Boy

Me and Shack a Bee right before we went trick or treating with the carpenters. I know what your thinking what a scary dragon!!!
Mommy Daddy and Scary Dragon!!!!!
With the cousins! Rylie was a Rock star vampire, Kynlee was a dalmation, and my favorite was Bryson as a dead Tony Romo! Can you tell we are not cowboy fans?
Hangin with Grandma and Grandpa Yates after enjoying some hot chocolate. Look at that bigg belly that dragon has after us discovering his love for donuts. His love for food he gets from his mother. Which may be the only thing he has from me, sorry buddy.
This picture is a perfect description of a proud Grandpa. Everyone I have shown this to agrees with me.
Getting kisses from Great Grandma Rigby. he loves getting kisses!
Sweet Ky leaned in to give him a kiss and he decided he wanted to check out her ear and hair.
Getting some halloween loves from aunt Nat!
With aunt Kristin. Caught him yawning in this one he was completely exhausted by the end of the night and sick of being in his hot costume. Thanks all the family for making Shakobe 's first Halloween so memeroble. We had a blast and were so grateful to spend time with everyone the passed two weeks for all the activities!!
And I wanted to post this picture of cutie pie simon with shakobe. Simon is getting baptized tomorrow and we are so proud of him and love him so much. Thanks for being such a great example to your little cousin shakobe I wish we could be there but I hope he knows we will be thinking about him all day and we think he is so great for all that he is doing. Love you buddy and we cant wait to see you so we can give you big hug cuz we miss you so much!!

First of all our cute niece Kylie turned 4 today!! This is her at her birthday party with the present we gave her. She is so adorable we love her so much!!

Getting ready the decorate cupcakes at Jess's halloween party at her house. We were in charge of cupcakes and decorating supplies for the party and I was pretty proud that I made them myself. Ha Ha

Here they are decorating. Shakobe loves to be involved and do it himself already. Boy are we in for a interesting future with this independent little man.
How did they do?? Shakobe even got a taste and loved it.
Bugs was mad at Gregg for putting frosting on her nose. These two live to tease eachother its hilarious.
We played the game where you have to eat a donut hanging on a string without using your hands and whoever does it the fastest wins. Mano won this one.
Big boys compete!! Ryan was the champ of that one his even fell on the mat and he got down on the floor and finished it. True dedication way to go. Lol
I love in the moment pictures especially this won cuz Dax is having so much fun with his Grandpa.
Finally all us girls had a go add it and as suprising as it may sound I was the Winner!!
Gregg caught a picture of my mouth full and covered with donut! Not sure if I should be very proud of this but oh well it made the night.
Played pin the wart on the witch!! My favorite was when it was Jess's husband erik's turn and saylor just yelled out "ITS JESS'S DAD"S TURN!" funny little girl.
Little man tried to eat the wart when it was his turn but he still put it on a pretty good spot!!
Had a candy walk to earn treats to eat while we watched a Halloween movie.

Ended the night watching the Haunted Mansion. It was so much fun thanks jess for planning such a wonderfully fun evening. Its why I love this time of year.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL!! love the Rigby family!!!!


As you can tell me and Gregg dressed up as bacon and eggs. ha ha. It was the first time in years either of us dressed up and Im so happy my husband was such a good sport about it. We spent halloween night at my sisters house watching my all time favorite halloween movie Hocus Pocus.
Me and my niece and nephew on halloween night. Rylie was a "cute witch" as she would say and my nephew was Edward. The man of all our dreams. It was a fun night.
We or should I say I dressed up our kitty for halloween. He absolutely hated it but put up with it for about five minutes to make me happy.


So I had to show everyone this picture of our family on the Atlantis rollercoaster at sea world. The looks on everyones faces is priceless. Lol, especially my sisters and myself.
