The kids actually sat on Santa's lap this year except for Brandon. He had nothing to do with him. Ashlie asked for a Diamond Castle barbie. Matthew was a little nervous so when he got off santa's lap Jeff asked him what he asked for. Matthew said " I think I just messed up, I told him I wanted a new buzz, but I really don't I already have one" It was hillarious! So we decided to write santa a letter and ask him for what he really wanted a Batman costume, where the wings pop out.
Here are a few pics of the kids decorating the tree. They were so excited. Pretty much just the bottom half gets decorated and then Jeff and I adjust it just a bit after they go to bed. I thought it was cute that Brandon would hang the ornaments on the lights and not the tree. I love watching the kids get so excited and each year gets more fun as they get older.
Our Thanksgiving was really fun. We traveled to Salt Lake and stayed with my Sister Heather. We had fun playing rock band, games, fishing, going to temple square, and playing at the parks. It was so fun to see family and I am sooo sorry to all of my friends there who we did not see. Please don't hate me!! It was a fast yet very busy trip. I will catch you next time.
Jeff and I were married on June 16th, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We met at BYU during Jeff's last year of undergrad. I am a busy mom of 5 wonderful children who are very busy themselves. M is 11, A is 10, B is 8, K is 6 and L is 18 months . They are all doing well. We enjoy camping, rock climbing, running, canyoneering, and our new found sport of family bowling. We hope to have a fun and eventful year.
