Dani with her friend Josie. Her conversation on this particular day was about how much hard work putting together the puzzle was! What a life, princess dresses and puzzles! But Dani has really been into puzzles lately. She is really good at them, and will spend hours doing puzzles. She is normally working on one at any given point in the day.
Charley started tennis lessons again. We had been doing the tennis camps during the summer, but the tennis club we go to had year-round classes. We were on the waiting list for a while, and a few weeks ago a spot opened up for Charley!
So the girls got a visit from a professional football player, Kyle Van Noy (he also used to play for BYU), at school. It was in the news, but the principal at the Elementary school and Kyle were in the security line at the airport and got their computers mixed up. The principals email was open on the computer and Kyle was able to figure out who she was and called the school. He came to the school to switch computers, and took the time to go into each of the classes, and take pictures with the kids. He also gave all of the kids his autograph....they copied it, but it was still exciting for the girls!

It was spirit week at school last week, and one of the days was Blast from the Past day. So Charley wore my old vest that used to be my mom's. Her grandmother (my great grandma) made it for her when she was in high school. Each of the great-grand kids got something my great grandma made when she died. I still have it! I think it is so cool, and will actually wear it myself from time to time!

Over President's Day weekend, we took the girls to CA to visit the Bartlett bunch. They had the best time with their cousins. It is so fun that they have 3 girls about the same ages as our 3 girls. They played for hours all weekend....they played at the park, the pool, the beach, the house. It was perfect! We love our family!

January was a good month!
Sunday, January 4, 2015
Friends and Family who came: Jesse Alba family, Fritzsche Family, Durtschi Family, Forbes Family, Shorten Family, Sister Humphrey, Aunt Kay, Uncle Ira, Aunt Liz, Bishop Reeve, Grandpa Z, Nana, Aunt Jordan, Aunt Lexi, and Schramma & Schrammpa via Skype all the way from Chile!!
Charley was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on January 3, 2015 by her dad. It was extra special because it was also her birthday! Before the baptism we had a lunch with all her friends and family who went to the baptism. We are so blessed to have so many close friends that were able to come, and for all the family that was able to make it. Even Schramma and Schrammpa. They were able to watch the program through our phone on Skype from their mission in Chile. We had to turn the camera away when they performed the actual ordinance, but they were still able to hear everything. We are so grateful for technology, and that she was able to have all her grandparents there. And after the baptism we all headed back to our house for cake and ice cream to celebrate her birthday! Her friend Michael was also there, who happens to have the same birthday as her, and were able to sing to both of them.
We are so proud and happy with Charley's decision to be baptized. She is such a great blessing to our family, we love her so much. She has such a sweet spirit, we know she will bless the lives of all that get to know her.
*Charley has been taking piano lessons for the last few months and was able to learn a song to play at her baptism, "I like my Birthday's".
