I turned 3 and had a princess party. My Mom is the BEST and put a lot of work into making it extra special. She says she had a lot of fun doing it so that makes all the work okay. In the morning the Hendrix Family came over to celebrate along with 2 of my friends. Then later that evening the Dryden family came over for Taco's and cupcakes!
Ok so now you want to here about the baby. Well he is still in my mommy's tummy but he's going to come out it three days. (that is just my guess as of last night). Mom would like to go into labor on her own because she is trying to do a VBAC and that is much safer than being induced. I really have no clue what all that means but that's what she says to all the people that ask about it. So we really don't know when he'll come out but hopefully soon cause I am anxious for him to get here. I am going to be a really big help to my Mom. We are all very excited for this baby to come and mom is excited to not be so uncomfortable. Check back with us soon to see this cute little baby brother of mine.

Dear Friends and Family,
We have had a wonderful year this year full of family, fun, joy and love! What more could a family ask for.
Lisa started the year off right with a long weekend in Vegas with some college friends and had more fun then she thought possible. She also enjoyed her church calling serving with the Young Women and was very upset when they released her a couple of weeks ago. She's enjoyed lots of reading and some Crocheting.
Joe is grateful to have a stable job. He was able to squeeze in one rafting trip this summer which is not nearly enough but he still enjoyed it. He also spent most of the year wishing it was fall so he could be out bird hunting and was very happy when fall rolled around. He Is very excited to be getting himself a little hunting buddy come May.
Adalynn has had some fun this year and has given us some experiences we aren't so sure we enjoyed. She got stitches in her forehead in May and a concussion in December. We also went through potty training and big girl bed training. She loves to help around the house and talk talk talk, and we can't seem to get enough of her! She's so sweet and good and so much fun! We spent lots of weekends at grandparents houses this year which Adalynn loved! She LOVES her grandparents and going to their houses. She doesn't quite understand the idea of getting a baby brother but likes to tell people that Mommy has a baby in her belly and she has food in her belly and Daddy has food in his belly. I sure hope she doesn't think I ate a baby. She is such a smart little girl and surprises us every day with the things she says and does.
We are thankful this year for our wonderful friends and the amazing family we have, we feel so blessed. We are thankful for our Savior Jesus Christ, for His life and His example. This is a wonderful time of year to reflect on the sweet baby Jesus and the man He became. We find joy through him and we hope you can feel of His love this Christmas season. We wish you all the best and send our love.
Love, Joseph, Lisa, Adalynn and Baby Boy Dryden

"Do it myself."
"Shut the door."
"I want to flush it."
Mommy calls it potty trained. I get to wear princess underwear all day unless its nap-time or bed-time. Or unless Daddy is taking me somewhere, he's still a bit nervous about the idea.
insert from mom- just at this moment I was thinking I should get a picture of adalynn on the potty to post on here. So I ask Adalynn if she need to go potty? She says "I do it myself." so I thought I'll just wait till she's sitting on the potty then go in and snap a picture. I'm watching as she goes in shuts the door, and few seconds later she opens the door trows her panties and pants out onto the floor shuts the door again the then i hear her lock it. So much for a picture of her in the potty. A few seconds later I hear the toilet flush and a struggle with the door knob and then "Mom I want out." She cracks me up! not sure why she has to throw her pants into the hall but it sure was funny.

The outfit I picked out for today. Really I didn't want to wear anything but mom told me I couldn't go to the store untill I put some clothes on.
I love to slide and love even more to swing but there wasn't a swing at this park.
Didn't my Mom do such a good job on my cake! I loved it!
Opening presents with Granny and Grandpa. I was so so so glad they came to celebrate my birthday with me.
