Where Has This

Month Gone
I can't believe Christmas is in two days. I better get got up on the festvities before the big day. I really am kinda sad the holidays are over soon. This is what we have been up to since the last time I posted. Addie had a dance recital, it was really fun to see what she has learned. She was alittle shy at first but then she really got into it . Ky had a Christmas sing at school. He was so excited for that, they also have a breakfast with Santa he was even more excited for that. Last weekend we had a few family parties to attend to. Jade's grandma always does a Holy Dinner its always really fun. I didn't get to go but jade and the kids made it they had a great time, the bug jolly guy even stopped by. After that party we had my grandma Anderson's party. It was a little different this year. Grandpa passed away about a month ago so we missed him greatly. But we still had a great party. And agian the jolly man stopped by. I am not sure how many times you need to see him in a year. Sunday we went to the fireman family lunch sloppy joe's, chips and punch always good. Santa comes but we had to leave early to head up north for another party. But santa was nice an left them a gift anyway. Our final party was granna patten. We don't get together with all my cousins on that sidevery often, so it was to catch up. We had a very fun BUSY weekend. But it was worth it. We Hope Everyone As A Safe And Merry Christmas!!

grandma even got a gift from santa. She got a really pretty necklace. That had grandpa's pic in it. Like that didn't make us all cry.

Ky and Caliber I thought that was such a cute picture Beautiful Kids

Christmas fun!!!

On friday was our ward party. We had a very good dinner and then a Nativity program. Ky got to be an angel. He looked more like a mummybecause he wouldn't wear a sparkely halo. oh well! After the program the big jolly guy stopped by. The kids were super excited for that. Ky told him he wanted a piano. That was new. I don't know that santa will pull that one off this year.

I enjoy this time of year so much. I love all the decroations, the music and lights. I love that we get together with all of our family. I love that my kids ask me everyday if they can open a present everyday or they ask me a million times a day if it is christmas. But the older I get the more I am so greatful for the savior. And I try really hard to get my kids to understand the real meaning of christmas.

Silly kids

Sleep Walking!!

So last nite I had just got to bed and I heard ky get up I thought he was just going to the bathroom. Well he didn't I kept hearing him walk around going up and down the stairs and and down in the kitchen so I went to see what he was doing. His eyes were clsoed and he was peeing in my kitchen garbage can. I burst out laughing what in the world are you doing I said He said just going to the br. I really think he was sleep walking. Its not the first time I have caught him doing weird things in the middel of the nite. Lol I thought it was pretty funny. But I just finished his business and walked up the stairs and went rigth back to bed.


Getting ready to go trick or treating>

ky in his bat costume. He is already planning next years costume.

Fairy Addie. Nice smile!!

There first house of the night to trick or treat at.
They had alot of fun. Got plenty of candy. And mom is glad its over. lol.!!

Our giant pumpkin, that jade's mom and dad grew in there garden. It was so huge we had to carve it on the floor so my tabel didn't break.
Jade really get's into the pumpkin carving. He had to use a elctric saw to get through the huge thing. Ky couldn't wait to carve it but doesn't want to help clean out the insides.
Addie wanted to make pumpkin pie. So by the time we were done she had 3 pans an paper plates full of pumpkin guts.
It turned out pretty good.!! a haunted house and our last name up the side. Good job jade.
Addie at her preschool halloween program.!She sang one song and then decided she didn't want to particapte and sat down and watched. Silly girl. She usually isn't to shy so i still don't know why she wouldn't sing..Add and her teacher Ms. Carol
Ky's school class. They had a parade at the school.
Ky at his school party.I was able to go and help with it. I am glad that i am able to support my kids,I was in charge of the craft for the kids. So I had them make a ghost out of there foot print. on Halloween I got the kids a jack o lantern pizza for dinner. YUM!!
