Last night we decided it was about time that we took the boys to go see Santa. Logan has been really sick, so we haven't been able to go. So after a week of medication he finally started to LOOK and feel better.They all got dressed really fast! It makes me think that they purposely dress slow on Sunday for church. If Santa was at church every Sunday we would probably be on time.
We waited in the wrong line for 30 minutes. Then when we were told to go to the other line we had to wait another 15 to 30 minutes. We went from being in front to being in the back of the line.

They all told Santa what they wanted, and then we went out to dinner.
Funny story: Gavyn's teacher at school told the class that they should only ask Santa for one gift because Christmas is not about getting presents, it is about giving. So this year Gavyn had decided to only ask for big EXPENSIVE things. He wants to make sure he gets his fair share. The gifts have changed, but they range from things like a real motorcycle, a real quad, a Nintendo DS, and so on. I am glad that she tried to get that lesson across to her students, but sometimes the student finds a loop hole.

I just found this picture of Jaidyn from a little over a year ago. He had the greatest chipmunk cheeks. They were so huge! Now he has grown up so much that his little cheekies don't look so full. One of daddy's favorite things is when his babies fall asleep on him. So cute!
And now the best of all. I was really really sick, and Jaidyn got into everything.

He is obsessed with Iron Man, and his costume was dirty, so he improvised.

He became Tin Foil Man! Mask and all.

Notice the crotchless uniform, that is so he can go to the bathroom. Later that day Andy went to get him pajamas, and found all of his foil pieces stuck in his drawer. He wanted to save it for Halloween! He cracks me up.

Emmalee got her hair done for the first time EVER!!! She has really pretty fine hair, and it finally has gotten thick enough that I can put barrettes in it.She is so fun.
I have tried to do the barrette thing, but they never would stay in.

Tada! She has enough hair for it finally.

Chewing on a comb.

Our little princess!


On Thanksgiving Christian had his 8th birthday. He was so excited to be turning 8 since he will be getting baptized.He really wanted a Wii, so of course his dad delivered. Notice the evil look in his eye! The look of satisfaction he got what he has been wanting FOREVER!
We have all come to love the Wii, it is a great way to get the whole family ACTIVELY involved together. Not to mention it is great for all ages, young and old. It is definitely a system where you do not sit down. We were all over the place. The next day Andy and I were seriously sore from playing tennis, golf, bowling, baseball, and of course boxing. We are just too competitive for each other.

Over all, it was a really fun birthday, filled with turkey, stuffing, cheesy mashed potatoes (yum), peas, rolls, cake, ice cream, and of course a lot of Wii!

My boys! Emmalee was sick. :(


Congratulations Gavyn for getting an award for being a respectful student.He was so sick, but her tuffed it out just so he could stand in front of everyone and collect his award.
We are so proud of you Gavyn.

Gavyn is doing excellent in school is is ahead of where he is suppose to be already. I think the fact that he loves to go (finally) is the biggest reason.

Andy and Kelly Together Forever
