Elizabeth is Three!

Whenever the number two was used in reference for anything, Lizzy would always say it was because she was two.  Now that she is three she is not sure what to do with the number two.  She asked me when she would be two again.  She was a little sad when I said she would never be two again.  But then she was excited that someday she would be four like Henry.

Eliza loves spending time with her brothers. 

They are her best friends.

She loves doing big kid things with them like using the bungie cords in the back of the truck.

When Charlie is at school, Lizzy often pretends that Henry is her husband.  And Henry loves it.  He opens doors for, and takes her on dates, and treats her as if she was his beautiful wife.

ELizaBelle loves her books and is constantly looking at them.  If she is quiet, I know it is because she is reading her books.

Elizabeth is learning to dress and undress herself, sometimes its tricky.

If Annette doesn't put away Lizzy's church dress quickly, Lizzy will get it and put her arms through the sleeves and wear it around the house like a princess.

Elizabeth loves princesses and is loving watching all of the Disney princess movies. 

We asked Elizabeth if she wanted to be a cheerleader and she said, "No, I want to be a BYU football player."  That is her dream.  She loves sports! 

She also loves makeup and goes through Annette's while she is doing her makeup.

Elizabeth loves getting her hair done like a princess.




Eliza has quite the personality and loves life.  We love having Lizzy in our family!  She brings a great smile and a kind heart to our family.  We love her so much!

Winter Time

Winter was very fun.  The kids loved shoveling the snow with their little snow shovels.  Henry played in the snow like it was dirt.

Life is hard in the winter with glasses.  Anytime Lizzy needed to push her glasses up she got snow all over her face.

The kids enjoyed breaking the icicles  off of Grandma Sandra's house with her.

Henry liked rubbing his face into Grandma Sandra's duster.

We made snowballs.

And built a snow totem pole.

Made snow angels.

Went sledding down Grandpa Larry's big slide



Charlie got the "Builder" award at school.

The kids enjoyed heart stickers at Valentines.

And we talked about how life is created and fed.

Charlie was obsessed with BYU and dinosaurs.

Charles made a huge pasteurizer to be shipped to Indonesia.

And taught the kids all about it.

Henry thought he was pretty cool on the fork lift.

It is one of the kids favorite things about Daddy's work.

I started back into making delicious homemade bread.

Lizzy's hair grew longer.

The kids were enthralled by their cute little cousin.








Annette made a delicious strawberry pie that is like none other.  And that was our winter.
(I put a few new movies on our YouTube account)

Christmas Card From the Martins

A note from the Martin family this Christmas:

This year has been fun and exciting!
Charlie (5 years old) has been loving Kindergarten and soaking up all of the knowledge.  He loves math and does it just for fun.

Henry (4 years old) enjoys his time with Elizabeth while Charlie is at school.  He enjoys dinosaurs, wearing his BYU hat, and playing with hair.

Elizabeth (2.5 years old) enjoys having her hair done every morning.  She insists that we call her Yellow Princess.  She loves the color yellow and will carry her princess books around as if they are her text books for life.  Lizzy's other love in life is dogs and is ecstatic to see them.

Charles has been working at his new job that he began at the beginning of the year.  At his job he designs the machines that make product for manufacturing companies.  We had a home built this year and we are loving being in our own home.  Charles built the kitchen in the basement of our home.  We now have renters living there paying a portion of the mortgage.  Annette has been busy unpacking and beautifying the home.

Merry Christmas!
