Christmas Letter

So, here it is again the Christmas season of sharing. So much has happened this year. And we have so much to be grateful for.
Carson turned 3 on March 1st. He is getting so big. It is amazing what those little brains absorb. He is still going to daycare 2 days a week and loves it. He really wants to be big enough to go to school. Christmas will be fun this year with him.
Briley Jo was born on March 18th. Delivery went well. I had to had an emergency c-section with Carson, but I was able to have Briley naturally. And when I say naturally that is what I mean. I labored a lot at home and had her within an hour after arriving at the hospital. It has been so fun to have a little girl, bows, dresses and the works. She is little miss independent and in such a hurry to grow up.
Bryce has been busy working at Gem State Paper. He is such a great dad. He played on a city league flag football team this fall and had a lot of fun. He survived the whole season with no injuries, then on Thanksgiving day family and friends got together to play a game and he ended up with a broken wrist. So he is now sporting a beautiful black cast!
As for me, just trying to stay afloat! Still working, 2 days a week. I am in our ward primary presidency. It has been a good experience. Other than that it is just go, go, go everyday; laundary, housework, shopping, playing with the kids, etc.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas!
Love, Bryce-Shelly-Carson-Briley


Sooo Big!!

Briley is getting funner and funner every day! This was taken the end of October!

We went to our friends birthday party and they had a pirate party. Their little girl Kendra is just a few weeks older that Briley and they were in the spirit!. Arrrrgg!!

My little pony

We were at my mom's house one day and we pulled out some old toys stored away. I had this my little pony stable and ponies. They both loved it.

Jessica and Briley

Briley loves books and loves her aunt Jessica

The truck and the kids

Carson just loves his truck and really loves his little sister and now that she can sit better they took a little drive last month before it started cooling down. I just haven't been good at updating the blog lately.

Cute Kids


My sister Jessica was watching Briley and found these bands of Bryce's from his work party & put them on her. It is just too funny.

Brave tubing

We have to convince Carson every time we go out boating that he will have fun on the tube. He gets scared and doesn't want to go, then once he gets out there he enjoys it. Here he is with his friend Tyler and dad Lance.


We have had the opportunity to take my parent's boat out to Murtaugh Lake a few times this summer with friends and family.

Bass Lake Fun

These are a few pictures of Carson having fun at Bass Lake down in the Canyon during Bryce's work party last month. Gem State Paper goes all out for their company summer party. They have competition games with great prizes and fun activities for the kids. We had fun!!

Carson and His Truck

Carson has been wanting Briley to ride in his truck with him so bad so last month we put the boppy around her and let him drive her around the house. It was pretty cute. Then the other day he fell asleep in his truck driving. Bryce went out to have him come inside and saw him just sitting there bobbing his head to his radio, but when he got closer, it wasn't the music he was bobbing to- he has sound asleep. It was so hilarious.

Family on the 4th of July

Some fun times with cousins at Grandma and Grandpa Stanger's on the 4th. It has been fun having a lot of cousins about the same ages as my kids.
