Merry early christmas!

Brandon has decided to celebrate christmas on his own this year. He has added his own decorations to the tree along with the boots, he likes to add his pacifires too. He then decided to open a present under the tree. Luckily it was his own. So thank you Aunt Heather for the fun driver toy.

Santa Clause

So we told the kids we were going to see Santa. Matthew was really excited, and Ashlie said she didn't want to see santa. We waited in line and finally it was our turn. When we got up to him, Matthew would not even look at him. I had to hold him and release his death grip on me, but he managed to tell him what he wanted and even gave him a hug at the end. Jeff had to hold Ashlie and do the same thing. With a little bribery we got them to at least stand in the sleigh for a picture. Merry Christmas!!

playing in the snow

Here are a few pictures of the kids playing in the first snow fall. They had a blast as jeff was pulling them around. Even brandon was laughing pretty good. They sure gave jeff a workout. Ashlie was out there too, but all of my pictures of her were in a video, and I have not quite figured out how to post them yet. I know it's not that hard, but I still don't know.

My stockings

This year I decided to make my own stockings!!! For those of you who don't know me, I have never touched a sewing machine, don't really buy fabric, you get the picture, but all in all I think they turned our pretty cute. I was very proud of them, and the kids got really excited to see their new stockings. We are just waiting for Santa!!

Having a Picnic

The kids wanted to have a picnic for lunch the other day. So they sat in the kitchen on Matthews nemo blanket. It was really cute, because Brandon sat down and joined them.

This week has been a slow week. I have been very tired and sick. I have a nice case of tonselitis, and I just feel wiped out. On Wednesday it was Jeff's sisters Birthday, and to celebrate we went and saw the musical It's a White Christmas. It was very fun lots of dancing. It made me even more excited for Christmas and it was a great way to begin my Holiday. I can't believe Christmas is in a little over 2 weeks. Yikes!! I have not really done any shopping. The weather here has been a little weird this year. We have not had any snow really, a little flakes here and there, and then the next day it will be in the 60's then back down to the 30's like today. All I ask is snow for christmas. Then it can be sunny, sunny.

O' christmas tree, O' christmas tree!!

Last night we got a tree, and today we spent the day decorating it and the house. This is no doubt my favorite time of the year. I love the feeling that christmas brings. It's so fun watching the kids grow year by year and how fun each christmas gets as the kids get older. Matthew and Ashlie really enjoyed doing the tree, and Brandon is learning the word "NO" really quick.

Brandons first Buzz

Well we did it, we buzzed brandons hair. I don't want to hear it from anybody, if you don't like it sorry. We think he is still so cute. It's a little different but he's a cuttie.

Brandon made it to 16 months!!

Brandon is 16 months old today. I can't believe he is that big already. Brandon is such a funny kid right now. He thinks he is the center of attention. I love when he just radomly starts laughing at whatever seems to be amusing him.

Random pictures for your enjoyment!! ( I hope)

Here are a couple of picture of Matthew at his last swim lesson for a while. He was really loving and, and doing very well. I was so proud of him. And here is a picture of Ahslie in her new coat. I know it's not a very good picture. I thought this coat was so cute on her. It was 40% off and then I had a 10 off coupon, so it was only 11 $ I love great deals =)

Here are some pictures of brandon, I thought were cute. He is a funny little kid. He loves to climb in my laundry baskets and play and any little box. He starts laughing to himself, because something is funny.


Ok, so My sister-in-law Shauna and I did some crafts last weekend. It was really fun. I really love the christmas countdown the little bag on the side holds all of the numbers, which are magnetic to the board. I am so excited, I am decorating for christmas tomarrow. YEA!!!!!! We are leaving for thanksgiving and I want it to be christmas when we get back.

Random Stuff

There is not to much to post right now. I did some crafts over the weekend which I will post soon. I did how ever fail to mention, that 2 weeks ago I got another calling in my ward. You'll never guess what it is. They called me to be Girls Camp Director. Wholy cow!! I am very excited, and can't wait, it just seems overwhelming now. So now I am Nursery Leader, Camp director and on the emrichment committee. I think Ashlie is pretty much pottie trained I don't really have to remind her at all anymore. She went 3 times at church today. I can FINALLY say I only have 1 kid in diapers and man does it feel good. Horray for me(and Jeff)

Still training!

Ashlie continues to do well at potty training. She has not had an accident in 2 days and has even gone 2 times while we have been out. I hope she is really getting the hang of it. Maybe one day, I will not ask her at all and see if she tells me. Fun times!!

Horray for Ashlie!!!!!

I am just so happy. Ashlie has been potty training for the past 3 days and is doing remarkably well. Today is her best day by far, and has not had one accident, and pooped 2 times in the potty. I know you love to hear that. But, I am so proud of her, and she even came up to Jeff, and told him she had to go. We are so proud of her, and I am hoping, hoping to only have 1 kid in diapers by the end of the month.

LOts,and loTs,and LOTS of Halloween pictures

The kids had a really fun halloween and a great time trick-or-treating. Sorry there are so many pics, it's mostly for the grandparents. It's was fairly cold outside, so we ended up only going to about 15 houses before they were all complaining. Except brandon who was determined to stay in the street the whole time.
