Sledding


Uncle David and Aunt Lis bought the kids a sled for Christmas so they, along with Mark, had to go test it out. They had a blast! Liv was a little scared but in the end admitted that she had fun.

We Are Family

On Sunday, Dec. 23, my sister blessed her baby in my parent's ward and after church my mom insisted that we all take a family picture since we were dressed up...something that rarely happens.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Williams! I wasn't able to send out Christmas cards this year so I hope this little post is okay. We have a little announcement to make though - We are expecting our third baby! I am due in August. We are very excited and the kids can't wait for a little brother or sister.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Stitches

Today while playing with Ethan, Liv fell (or was pushed, we aren't sure) onto the corner of a wall and cracked her forehead open. We headed over to Alta View Hospital (we are at my folk's house) and she received five stitches. She handled the whole thing very well and the ER staff gave her a purple teddy bear which has become her new best friend.

Mexican Riviera

Here are a few highlights from our cruise down to Mexico!


We went out on a catamaran in Puerto Vallarta and went snorkeling and snuba diving (similar to scuba diving). We saw humpback whales while making our way out to the islands. Very cool!



This is a beach we played on in Puerto Vallarta.





This little boy was playing the drums with his dad on the pier in Cabo San Lucas.




We traveled around on Stone Island in Mazatlan on ATVs.



View of Downtown Mazatlan from our ship.



Mark became pretty good (I, however, was horrible!) at shuffle board on the days we spent on the ship.



Mark also spent time climbing the wall on the ship.

We had a great time on our cruise and look forward to doing it again very soon!

Christmas Tree


So we finally pulled the tree out of storage (yes, we have a fake tree) and the kids and I had a great time decorating it. Of course, Liv also found a few other ways to use the ornaments.

Cruise Blog

For some reason my cruise blog isn't functioning properly. I will have it up and running as soon as I figure out what's wrong with it.

Cruise Buddies

Amy & John


Melissa & Richard


While on our cruise we made some new friends who were also there because they worked for Platinum Protection. Richard worked for the office in Houston and John worked for the office in Milwaukee. We had dinner together every night to catch up on all the adventures that took place during our separate excursions at each stop. We also had lots of fun hanging out in the casino watching the high rollers and every now and then pretending that we were high rollers ourselves.
