Holy falling behind. Same old story every. time.
I’ve sat down to write this post a few times, but after a few minutes of not knowing how to start or what to say, I close it up and let it wait for another day. And now nearly six months later, I still really don’t have the words, but I don’t think many are needed. On November 30th, my Uncle Brian was killed in a car accident on his way to work. It was sudden, it was unexpected, and hit so close to home, especially being only weeks after my Aunt Jana’s death. He was such a good man and the greatest uncle, always there to share a good laugh with and talk deals (he and Austin bonded over that one, always on the hunt for a good deal). He left behind a beautiful wife and four sons.
Miss him. Love their family so, so much.
My mom always says things best, I love her post here.
I’m tempted to skip to more current events, but I feel like Christmas and New Years and just December events in general are too big of a things to miss documenting (mostly for Scarlett’s sake). Even if it’s almost half a year late. Here goes nothing.
The beginning of December brought Austin’s 28th birthday. Unfortunately, the only pictures I took that day were when we met up with him on his lunch break at In-and-Out. Scarlett was too tired to celebrate.
I promise we had cake and ice cream that night with his fam. Just no pictures to show for it! Happy birthday, bae ;)
^^Scarlett’s first week of nursery. She was not this happy once we actually made it in there haha. To this day…still not a nursery fan. Doesn’t help that there are nineteen kids in there with her in our new ward. And that’s only one of the nurseries. Needless to say, she will have a plethora of friends her age around here, that’s for sure! Maybe one day she’ll like them.
Cracking up at how she held pencils. She has since grown out of that grip haha.
After living at Austin’s parents house for a couple months, Scarlett finally started to get comfortable with everybody. Aunt Rachelle came back home for the holidays and got in on her good side quick thankfully!
At some point that month we took Scarlett out for a little photo shoot to get some up to date pictures…
Obsessed with her.
Then this happened. (Good thing they’re already married now). Congrats to Mitch and Kenzie!
We were extra lucky this year and also had my family in town through Christmas. The Goldsberry clan did a progressive dinner and Scarlett enjoyed her time being Santa with grandpa Billy.
^^Her sweet little Christmas dress from Gigi. Not the greatest picture but all I remember is she was not having it that day…hence the one and only picture. Oh well, still the cutest little dress ever. Worth documenting!
Merry Christmas Eve!
Even though we spent Christmas with Austin’s fam this year my parents still included us in the Syddall Christmas pj’s tradition.
Excuse the poor quality pic, it’s all I got. Go BYU!
Santa done good.
Getting ready to go see what Santa brought! Scarlett’s reaction when she saw her presents was the cutest. Here’s a little clip of it.
I can’t get over the hands on face after I set her down hahaha. She loves that car.
Loving the cute busy bag book she got from Grandma Judy. In for hours of entertainment! Scarlett is blessed with extremely talented and creative grandmas.
Seestor chat time! Miss that girl!
It was a great Christmas! It’s so fun having a kid who’s getting old enough to think it’s awesome too. Can’t wait for her birthday this weekend.
And since this post isn’t long enough already, here’s a few New Years pics for ya.
We started the night at Sam and Autumn’s house for a fun New Years party. We lasted til about 10:30 before miss Scarlett was done.
So, we headed back to Austin’s parents house, got her to bed, watched the ball drop and took our first 2016 selfie.
I think these new years get more exciting every year ;) Happy New Year e’rybody. Hope the first half of it has treated you well!
