Santa Came

Wow I can't believe it has already come and gone. We had a great christmas. The kids made a haul this year oh wait I think they do every year. Ky was so excited he got up at 1:45. I told him I didn't think santa had come yet. So he went back to bed.We we got up around 7:00. We tried something new this year and had the kids play with what santa gave them. And then waited awhile to open the other gifts. It actually turned out better than planned. And we think we will have that be a tradition of ours. By the time they opened all their gifts it was around 3 in the afternoon. I liked that it wasn't all over within an hour.We would let them open a few at a time. And then wait an hour our so to open some more. Any --who we had a great day. We went and took breakfast to some friends and ate with them. And came home and hung out then jade's parents came up for a little while. It was nice to have some company for the day. I hope you all had a very merry christmas:)

Christmas School Party and Christmas SIng

Last thursday I got to go and help with ky's school party. They were all a bit excited. And especially when the big jolly guy came by they were bouncing off the walls. They made a craft,played games, and had a snack. It was really fun. I am always happy to go help in ky's class. On friday was the christmas sing k-3 sang some songs and told the story of the night before christmas. It was really cute. And ky sang his heart out.

dance your heart out

A few weeks ago I got to go and watch addie at dance. At first she was shy of all the people that were there. SO she sat against the wall for about 20 min. After 20 min of me bribing her she fineally got up and danced with the other girls. And then she was a total show off. I guess it just takes her awhile to warm up. She was really cute once she started dancing. Here are a few pics of her. her being scared

getting a little braver..stretching from the side
and there she is being herself!!

Happy Holidays!!

I love this time of year. I love to take down my everyday decorations and put up christmas. I love to see my kids so happy and excited for the season. I love to get together with family and friends. I love giving. I love christmas music I pretty much start listneing to it as soon as they put it on the radio. I do however get a little stressed about did i spend enough on each kid. Is everyone going to be happy with what they get. I stress that my IN-LAWS never tell me what they want so they get something dumb. I stress that I won't get everything done in time. Even though it will come wether I am ready or not. I really am very excited to see my kids light up on christmas morning. I hope you all Have A very Happy Holiday Season!!

Thanksgiving 2010

We got to have to amazing thanksgiving dinners this year. The sunday before we went to my parents. It was really fun, even though both kids ended up with fevers so that wasn't to fun. On monday we went to midway and spent 4 days with jades parents. Grandmas always had fun things for the kids to do and even the mom's. They mad gingerbread houses, painted, made chritmas things and I got to learn to make yummy carmel and toffee. It was a really fun few days.Thanks everyone for the fun times. We are very thankful for such awesome families!!

Just like every year my kids especially Ky change there minds at leat 10 times about what they want to be for halloween. They were going to be Mickey and Minnie since they both got ears when we went to disneyland this year, but that was short lived when they saw these costumes at wal mart one day. This was at the beginning of Sept. mind you. So we got them because there wasn't very many. ANy way Ky got home and had to try it on and the costume hit him at his ankels, i took it back hoping to get i bigger one and no such luck .So we did the best we could with what we had. jeans over it and it looked like he had 2 belts but oh well it worked right. On friday ky had a halloween parade at school and they each grade sang some songs it was cute and addie had to dress up to. On halloween Sat I got the kids pumpkin donughts for breakfast. And then later that night before trick or treating we had pizza. I try to make any holiday different than any ordinary day. We went out in the rain trick or treating with our friends it was fun and loved that my kids said thank you to everyone and addie would say HAPPY HALLOWEEN as well so cute. They got enough candy to last them prob tell christmas. At least I don't have to by them canfy for a while. We had a great halloween and don't worry ky is already plannin g for next year.

Ky trick or treating.. (really he can smile but not in any of these) I couldn't get addie to stop for a pic she was having to much fun going house to house
