Luca was a lumberjack for Halloween. Cutest one I've ever seen!

Grandma and grandpa Nye bought Luca a coat. It's a little big, but doing the trick. It has been colder here than it has been in a long time! The inversion made it cold and foggy. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a fan of heat and sun!

This car was a present from Aunt Haley and Uncle Sean. Luca liked it at first, but he is now afraid to go inside it. Luca's little face peeking out is adorable.

Luca enjoyed the wrapping just as much as the presents.

Aubrey, Dad, and Luca
Aubrey is really growing up. I need updated pics of her to post. I better take some this weekend!

It has been a long time! Things have not been going too well for us. I have a long list I could whine about, but won't because it is no fun to be a downer! Luca turned one on the 26 of Dec., but I don't have any pics because they are on my mom's camera and haven't remembered to retrieve them. I tried not to put too many pics on so as not to overwhelm anyone. Next I'll post the pics of Luca in his boots. Luca loves wearing them and will bring them to you to put them on.
Luca is all boy! He doesn't like to sit still, AT ALL! At the store he likes to walk and push the cart himself. Luca is also not very shy and hasn't shown signs of separation anxiety yet. In fact, he cries less with other people. He will talk and laugh with anyone. I am going to have to keep my eye on him. Paul was that way when he was young. Of course I don't remember what Paul was like at 13 months, but I remember when we were kids he was an outgoing jabber mouth.

Jake and I dressed up as a hunter and deer one year for our ward party.

Aubrey as a bee. Uncle Daniel went trick or treating with her and this is one of my favorite pics ever of them.

Aubrey as a little piggy.
I thought I would post some past Halloween pics. for fun. I wish I had some on the computer from when Aubrey was younger than these to post. Those pics are in a box somewhere. I need to take the time to scan them, along with many other loved pics into the computer!

Holly and CJ's Wedding

oops, I had the flash on

Jake, Holly, and their mom Roxann

Jake's dad, Jim, and Uncle Scott

Aunt Karen, us, and Grandma Raymond

Holly and CJ got married Sept. 20 in the American Fork Temple. Holly is now Holly Hughes. Isn't that cute?
Paul and Adri blessed Chandler the same weekend. I am bummed that I don't have any pics with them. I don't even have any pics of when Luca got blessed. We forgot to take pics. So sad! I also put a pic from when Holly got her endowments in Manti. Jake participated while I stayed with Luca outside. The Manti temple holds a special place in our hearts because both Jake and his family and my family got sealed in Manti way back before we knew each other. I was very young, but I remember my new dress and staying in the nursery. Even though I was too young to understand much, I remember feeling how special and exciting of a time it was.

Catch up time

Poor babies! It looks so uncomfortable to wear these life jackets.
Having fun with finger foods

Luca and Aunt Holly

Taking Aubrey for a spin on the cruiser

Watch out, Luca's taking over the wheel!

All tuckered out

I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted! Time goes by so fast. These pics are old already. I need to get better at blogging. I really am going to try much harder (I know I've said it before). I joined Facebook, but that seems to be too time consuming. People send things to you and I feel guilty when I don't send things back. I much prefer the blog because I can post when I want and not feel obligated to anyone in particular. We had a very busy weekend that I will post about in a couple of days, promise!

Mount Sneffels

We attempted camping and hiking last weekend, but the weather was rainy. Here are a couple pics of our cutie. Luca loves the outdoors- he's so my child! Sneffels is the first 14er that Jake and I hiked together (with my papa and Molly). It is right outside of Ouray. It is absolutely beautiful. It was pouring so we don't have many pics.

Slide show

I should've commented under my slide show, but I forgot. I am happy to announce the arrival of my new little nephew, Chandler Andrew Nye. He was 9 lbs. 4 oz.! It is so fun to see how different the cousins look. Chandler is the first baby on the Nye side with lots of dark hair. As you may have noticed, the rest of my parents' grandbabies are all blond with blue eyes and not much hair. Fun! I also added a couple pics of when we went to Daniel's boot camp graduation in Kentucky and some more miscellaneous pics.

Check out my Slide Show!

I want to say thanks to all who commented on our blog, it is good to know you are out there. I noticed comments on pics that had been posted for awhile as well as on my last blog (where I whined). So much has happened since our last blog that I chose to post a few pics altogether without explaining much. Hope you all are enjoying life. Here's a pic I forgot to post on my previous post. Jake, Luca, and I went to Arhes National Park for Memorial.

David and family's visit from NM

My sister Molly, brother Paul and our neice, Aspen, all share the same birthday. We celebrated at Highline Lake. Paul could not make it because he has been working in Phoenix. The above pics include: my grandparents Dean, Mom, David (my brother), David's wife Crystal, Aspen, Asher (nephew), Luca, Jake, and Aubrey. My cousin, Jason, and his family are in the top pic. Their daughter's bday is also June 1. Whew, I hope I included everyone! I'm guessing you can figure out who is who.

Our little man!

Jake's Fam

Luca is giving Mimi love!
Cute pic of Sean and Haley

We met Holly's new boyfriend, CJ, last week. Tell me they aren't perfect for each other! Jake wore his cowboy get-up to embarrass Holly, but we don't have any pics (boo).

General pics

He was talking with Daddy, you can kind of see the smile.
Praying hands.

Mister blue eyes

All tuckered out! This is what Luca wore for Easter. I can't wait until next year when we get to hunt for Easter Eggs, etc.! I thought about dressing him up in a cute hat with bunny ears, but realized that kind of outfit wasn't church appropriate.

Luca at two months. Just plain cute!
