I have been a terrible blogger! In 2015 it is one of my goals to keep up on my blog more regularly! We had a pretty fun 2014-here is a very quick run down on what we have been up to the past few months! It is very out of order because its too annoying to try and rearrange them!
Oliver with his Christmas haul-a train table and some dinosaurs!
Cousins at Nana and Grandpa's house on Christmas morning
Oliver and William with their Zurg action figures from Santa! (Grammy)

Mike and I at fall market in North Carolina
While we were at market, Alex and Isabelle watched our kids and took them to the Diederich "magic pool"
A pink kitty and a rainbow, per their requests.
Oliver after the first day at Disneyland-he passed out on the walk back to the hotel!
Princess Alice loved Disneyland, obviously.
It was pouring rain our first day, so we had to buy some ponchos to try and stay dry.
Port Townsend, WA Baker Family Trip-June 2014
Whale watching in Port Townsend, WA-
Alice and Oliver loved riding in the boat and seeing the whales.
Mike loved catching crabs and other creepy creatures :P
Oli and Charlotte on the ferry
Recreating a picture we have as kids with our names written in the sand. Our kids weren't too excited to have to interrupt playing and take a photo, hence their grumpy faces!
This beach was different than your typical beach, but the kids loved exploring and finding treasures!

Fourth of July-2014
Aunt Missy made this awesome water bubble that the kids were obsessed with!
Our little Oliver had gigantic tonsils and had a hard time sleeping through the night because they were making it hard to breath. So, they were taken out! He did pretty well for the first couple days after surgery, but when his scabs fell off it was horrible for about a week. We are so glad to have it over and done!
Alice had constant ear infections and fluid in her ears, so the doctor wanted to have tubes put in her ears. She did great with her recovery, besides throwing up on both Mike and I after waking up. We did both kids surgeries on the same day, and I would actually be fine doing it again!
Cabin Trips of 2014
We had lots of trips to the cabin this year. These are a few of our favorite pictures from the year in Idaho!
New cowboy boots and hats for all the kiddos! Thanks Grammy and Grandpa!
Finally playing in some snow in Driggs-he loves it this year!
A cabin trip isn't complete without a stop at the Emporium for shakes
Mike and Paul ran their first trail marathon-and first marathon-this summer. They placed 1st (Paul) and 4th (Mike) in their age group-they did SO amazing!! We were all so proud of them.
The boys also did the annual Saints to Sinners race to support the Rider family and the cure for ALS. They biked from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas with their team, "Creighton's Riders"
Fall hike at Silver Lake
Our family at my brother Alex and his cute wife Isabelle's wedding! Such a fun night!
Daddy and Oliver on a fall bike ride with our new fun kid seats!
Our basement remodel officially began this fall, and is still going to this day. It seems like this photo was taken ages ago and our basement will never be finished....ahh!
Mike and I took a long weekend and went to San Francisco with our good friends Spencer and Nicole. It was so much fun and much needed.
Little Miss Alice started dance a few weeks ago, and as you can tell by her face, she adores it.
This is just a small peak at our year, it was a great one. Can't wait to see what 2015 brings for our family! Happy New Year!
