Christmas Day!

The day finally arrived! Brooklyn woke up first to the sounds of santa's sleigh at a sweet 5:30 in the am! Sooo, we stalled her for a bit by letting her play bowling, (her favorite Wii game). Luckily that worked for about an hour before the rest of the clan woke up! They never thought the day would come! After presents were opened we packed the car and headed for Nana and Papa's house in California! The kids were so excited! It was a busy day!

Christmas Eve with Gramma Debbie and Papa!

Gramma Debbie and Papa were able to stop by for a quick visit on their way back to Utah from Bryon's Dad's 80th birthday in L.A. Of course they came bearing loads of gifts! The kids had so much fun seeing them again and it was a preview of what was to come on Christmas day for Madison! She had no idea she could rip the presents open!

Gingerbread House Time!

The kids are officially on vacation and we had to come up with some classic activities! I know everyone remembers the graham cracker versions of these yummy houses! I tried to tell my kids that gingerbread really isn't very tasty...(my opinion)but they wanted to see for themselves, so the day before I bought some ginger snaps...yeah, long story short, everyone was down with using graham crackers instead of the gingerbread! Mom was happy because it's a whole lot less work! Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays!

What you didn't see on your christmas cards this year! With the addition of each child it get's harder and harder for everyone to look at the camera! This year it was our Boston that told us he couldn't smile with his eyes open, because the lights hurt his eyes! So as you can see when one is looking or in some cases when 3 are looking one is a little distracted! Anyway it was a bunch of fun taking these pictures this year! We hope you all have a great holiday season!

It Rains in Phoenix!

The kids had so much fun last weekend with the rain! It started to rain on Friday and the kids had a blast playing in it! They were shocked that we didn't have any umbrellas and really wanted me to go buy some. Even though it was still in the 70's we went and got the kids hot cocoa from Starbucks and then stopped off at the dollar tree for some quality umbrellas after school! So as soon as we got home the kids ran down to the little park down the street and had a bunch of fun splashing in the rain! It was a nice little break to all of our sunny days!
