Christmas Day

It is official; our kids are now old enough to get excited for Christmas. They woke us up early and couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought them. I was a little worried that they might be disappointed that they didn't get everything that they wanted, because they kept adding on to their list up until Christmas Eve; but was very relieved that they were happy with everything they received. I think my most memorable moment was when Daxton opened his present from Uncle Josh. It was a little red box with a sliding door and when you pull on the door a spider jumps out onto your hand. It scared the living crap out of him. After he got use to it a little bit he kept going around to everyone telling them that there was a particular item that they like and to open it. He kept saying to me, "Mom I have a necklace for you, here open it." Although I new what it was I played along and acted freaked out, he thought it was hilarious. I will have to post some video of him.

Christmas Eve

Nicks family came over to our house for Christmas Eve. We played games, girls against boys and of course the girls won more than they boys....We Rule!! After games we decorated cookies and read the Night Before Christmas. Hope everyone had fun.

Oh what fun it is to ride in a Snow-kabob!

One of our friends in our ward named Mark took us sledding with his snow Kabob. What a great way to go sledding, you sit on blanket and have blankets over you while sledding. It was the warmest that I have ever been while sledding and my kids loved it!! Mark also let Dax drive the truck while pulling us around...Scary I know j/k. No, Dax just steered and yes Mark was helping him.

Nick's work Christmas party

Nick's work Christmas party was at Noah's in South Jordan this year. We had yummy food and played games; it was a lot of fun. At the end of the night they had a raffle drawing and I was on only one who didn't win anything...some luck huh?? At least Nick had better luck than me and came away from the party with a book called "How to be famous". It's is a pretty funny book, so if you get a chance check it out sometime.

Last week Karley kept falling asleep around 5:30 pm. One minute she would be talking and happy and the next minute she was out. Here is a few that I took…poor tired little girl!

While I was making dinner yesterday Daxton and Karley got out all of Karley's dress-up stuff. Every once in awhile I would hear them giggling, so I just assumed they were having fun playing. Moments later I realized that Acadia was still lying on the floor and she was being more quite than normal. This prompted me to go check on her and this is what she looked like...Poor Acadia apparently was their model! What a good sport she was to let them torture her with all of these accessories!! I am glad that I went and check on her when I did, because of the danger of her choking; since she had about ten different necklaces on and a few of them were kind of tight.

My sweet Acadia!

Don't let some of the pictures fool you,I think it is safe to say that Acadia doesn't like rice cereal!! When I tried giving her some she spit every bit out and would shake her whole body in disgust, it actually was quite funny to watch. She also kept putting her hands in the way of her mouth and was getting very frustrated that I kept trying to give her more. I thought that maybe she didn't like it because it was was new to her, but since have tried numerous times and I still get the same response. I think I am going to have to skip the cereal stage and go straight to baby food....hopefully she will like that more.

This year for Halloween Daxton was a Bumble bee transformer, Karley was Ariel and Acadia was a butterfly. The kids had fun treat-or-treating,carving pumpkins, making a haunted gingerbread house, and monster cupcakes. Here were a few of our pictures from that day.

Idaho Falls

We went up to Idaho falls a few weeks ago to visit my husband Grandma. We took the kids down to the falls and they love it! We also took them to a really cool park and the had fun playing in the fall leaves and on the playground toys.
