Random Pictures

 I am going to apologize in advance, because this is a very random blog post. But the pictures are mostly of cute Claire, so that makes it all okay.

Claire's first trip to In-N-Out. She obviously loved it!

Along with In-N-Out, Claire loves being read to.

A long time ago, my car hit a very important milestone: 77777 miles driven. And for those of you who want to comment on the speed of my car and taking pictures while driving... Richie was driving in an area where the speed limit was 75 mph, and I took the picture while he kept his eyes safely on the road. 

Recently, my car hit ANOTHER important milestone: 88888 miles driven!

Claire wore her Christmas dress last week so that our Logan ward could see it before we headed South for the holidays. She got plenty of compliments. Let's face it, she's extremely adorable.  

We had our friends, Kyle and Natalie, over for dinner last night. We wanted to do a Christmas-y get together before we left, so we made soup and they brought sugar cookie dough. Little did they know that Richie was dressed up like a professional chef moments before they walked in the door. 

Natalie makes the best sugar cookies, so I told her they couldn't come unless they brought the dough. We made little gingerbread man-shaped families, but Richie snapped the head off of the father before I could snap a picture. 

Hooray for finally being caught up on the blog!


Richie graduated with his Bachelor's in Computer Science this past week! I am so proud of him! He did such a great job at balancing work, school, and a brand new baby. If you remember, I made him walk with me in May in the College of Science so we could have pictures of us together. I have a blog post on that HERE.

After Richie finished finals, we went out to dinner, stopped by the movie theater to get "real" popcorn, and then came home to watch a movie. I snapped this picture of me before dinner...

...and then this picture after dinner. Claire's headband and tutu obviously didn't last all the way through dinner time. :)

Good job at graduating Richie!  He starts in his Master's program (again, Computer Science) this January. I know he'll do great!

Ice Show

It's always fun when Richie's little sister, Paige, has an ice show!

Claire slept through the first part of the show.

Paige did such a great job on her solo.

She also had a number with her synchro group,

Claire loved watching all the ice skaters after she woke up.

 Grandma Preece and Claire.

We can't wait for the Spring show!

Rolling Over!

Claire rolled over for the first time a few weeks ago. It has taken me a while to blog about it! She was exactly 11 weeks old. She started on her back and rolled on her stomach. She has done it three times since then.

 Claire HATES when she is on her stomach, so she immediately screamed when she ended up on her tummy.

I'm so proud of her!


Thanksgiving break was a blast this year! I didn't get pictures of dinner, but I stole these off my mom's blog.

Here's Grandma and Grandpa Gwilliam with Claire and Lily.

The dining room looked beautiful!

That weekend, we went to go see the light with the Preece clan. 

It was a fun weekend!
