New years day

New years day at the sand dunes
 This picture doesn't do the sledding justice. They were flying down sand mountain! It was scary to watch.

 My dad went to roast a marshmallow but they were all frozen together, so he decided to roast half the bag at the same time. And eat them.........all hahaha
 this picture is priceless, I seriously love it. Asher and kylie

Family pictures for christmas cards

Photo cred:  and her lovely tripod ;)

 Its safe to say that I have the best in-laws. Im pretty lucky I get to call them family


Mekks 4 month appointment, he has doubled his weight and grown 4 inches!
Weight 15.9 lb
height 25 inches
oh and he is in the 97% on his head--my big bald head baby
he got 4 shots and did actually really good until like 4 hours later then he had a melt down, a big melt down. Its not very fun watching your baby not feel good. 

 Helsten family christmas party 2014
I'd say my parents are pretty great party throwers. Every year we eat the same thing yummy ruben sandwiches. Then we play lots of games. This year my dad did a white elephant game except for he did all the gifts. (kinda clean out your house gifts) he gave small tvs, dvd players, knifes, random toys, grill's... it was pretty funny and the kids loved it

Me and Derrick we are so cute
