I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  We sure did!  We got spoiled as usual and of course Blakely was the center of attention.  Sorry for the overloads of pictures, but I took so many!  I just love christmas and can't get enough of the season!
We spent christmas this year with my family!  Always a blast and much needed since we don't see each other very often.  Here is everyone bowling where I managed to beat everyone except Blake, oh and my mom beat me by one!  I was impressed with myself.
All girls in our family!  Blakely with her cousins who all got spoiled!
I never get any pics with her since I'm always taking them!
                                   Christmas morning and we are all so excited!
My siblings met Blakely for the first time and Aunt Mikelle made Blakely this adorable red tutu!  Looks like we need to get pics taken!  Blake and Scott being goofs like usual!
Scott and I by the christmas tree after we opened all of our presents!  It only took like three hours!
Cousin Macie just loved Blakely and always wanted to hold her!  What a great helper!
This is Scott's favorite thing to do with Blakely!  Already teaching her tricks!
Oh my gosh can you stand this softball glove for Blakely!  Her name and everything on it!  She got this from Grandpa and Grandma Bell, but the joke is that they are deciding that she is right handed when I want her to be left like me!  We will just wait and see!
Scott and I are last minute people so we booked flights to Texas two hours before we had to take off and surprised his family for his brother Jared's Homecoming from his mission!  He was so excited to meet Blakely and for once Scott kept a secret.  Blakely loves Uncle Justin and just layed on his lap most nights.
The boys at their favorite restaurant Joe T. Garcias!  I have had enough Mexican to last me a lifetime!
Elder Jared Bell has returned!  This is Scott's youngest brother so all 5 boys had finished their missions!  What a good feeling.  He is such a stud so watch out ladies!
New Year's Eve!  The weather was so nice in Texas so we just sat by the fire pit and waited for the clock to strike midnight!  So sad the holidays are over, but off to Cancun we go on Friday!
