Merry Christmas!

I am passing time, waiting for my rolls to raise so I can bake them and then take a nap! We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, we sure did! Here are a few pictures of our Christmas morning-when I remembered to take them. I've never done the "Santa" layout before so hopefully it looks ok!

Tools! Just like Daddy.
A Little Dr. Kit. (Early training!)
Home made blocks, that smell like stain. (oops!)

The Rocking Horse that Lanny is not so fond of!

His stocking and extras.

Jared got Landon a Teepee Megamaze. It's pretty cute and takes up a lot of room. It has a Teepee, a tent, and two different tunnels. We got the tunnels out first and let him play in those while we put the tent and teepee together. He loves this gift!

Hopefully my rolls are ready to bake!

Zoo Lights!

We went to the Zoo Lights with my Family for a little Christmas celebration. It was great! The lights were beautiful and amazing. I have never seen anything like it. It was a little cold- below freezing- poor little boys, but I do think they had the warmest seat in the group. Jesse forgot his winter things so he was probably the coldest of the group. He didn't forget his gloves, but he insisted that I wear them instead of him. (I couldn't find mine) The boys even got a little souvenir, that had to thaw before the glitter would finally float around! We had a great time and I look forward to going again next year!

Christmas Lights

We put our Christmas lights up a weekend or two ago. (I'm a little behind) Okay, okay, so Jared put them up. I am so excited because this year we actually turned them on!!!

Those of you who saw our house last year and noticed we had lights up but they were never on, well it's because the power was never run to them. When Jared went to take them down, I tried to get him to turn them on at least once so that we could say we did, but he wasn't for it. This year I told him if we were going to have lights then they needed to have power so we could turn them on. I must admit he did a GREAT job! (I mean "they" Jared had a little helper) I love 'em! Especially my little blue tree!

Here are some pictures from the big event:





Landon was fascinated with the ladder. He absolutely did not want to let go of it!


We also celebrated Cody and Kylie's wedding here in Utah. Here are a couple of photos. Congrats Codes and Ky!


Landon spent the whole night playing on the stage and the 3 HUGE stairs leading up to it, and hiding behind the curtains. I'm sure he had a blast!

NEW but old toy!

This morning we found a new toy. We actually got it for Christmas last year but Landon is now old enough to use it. Thanks Grandma Susan! We had a great day with it! I think (hope) the batteries are almost dead.


(I don't know how to switch the video, it didn't have the option like pictures do, so I hope you don't get nauseaous trying to view it)

Our week in pictures

Landon has started this new thing where he walks around with a wipe and blows his nose. He thinks its funny, it actually kind of is, but I am glad he knows how to blow his nose. It sure helps. No more of the booger suckers! Also he has been using his Cowboy hat to carry the wipes around the house when he is not using them.

Happy Thanksgiving! I didn't get a whole lot of pictures this day.

On Saturday night Jared had the idea to take Lanny to McDonald's play place for the first time. He absolutely loved it! (As any kid would) He had such a good time. When the older kids came and started shoving Jared and telling him to crawl through the tunnels faster, we decided it was time to go. We didn't want Lanny to get hurt. I must admit that Lanny did really good when we left. He didn't want to leave but there were no tantrums. Thank You!

Get better soon Lex and Jordan, we would like you to join us next time!

Frustration!

Okay, so I have tried to update my blog twice now and I am unable to upload photos. I have a post ready, it just needs pictures. I will let it rest for a few days and try again later. So be sure to check again soon.

Also, those of you who have sound and speakers, I appologize I have not updated my music. I don't even remember what is on my list. Jared got me my own computer so we don't have to share anymore and, it doesn't have sound so I totally forget I have music. If you just turn the volume down you can have a computer like me and then I don't need to worry about the play list :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just want you to know that I am grateful for many, many things (I don't want to bore you with my list) but I am really grateful for my wonderful loving husband and my sweet baby boy! I don't know what I would do with out you 2. Thanks for all you do! I love you!

I FiNaLlY got the computer to cooperate, it was actually one of my pics wouldn't load, so here is the post that just needed the photos.
I totally forgot that I had pictures of the boys playing in the leaves at my house. So here are the fun pictures of us (them) playing in the leaves.
Landon got a little distracted by Shilo (my Dad's cat) Here he is, still distracted. He loves cats. Christian, once again, enjoyed throwing the leaves up into the air. Whenever a car, truck, or any type of automobile drives by, Landon loves to wave to them. So if you ever drive by and we are outside, watch for Landon's wave.
Cute boys! They sure enjoy playing and spending time together.
This is the night before we left to California for Kylie and Cody's wedding. If you know me, you know that I wait until the absolute last minute to get things done...well...I still needed to put the crafts and signs together for the Open House my friend was holding while we were gone and I still needed to pack Lanny, Jared, and Myself. For dinner we had taco soup and I did not need this delay at all! But figures, with my luck, it happened. I am glad to say I got the things put together everything packed and we left just in time. I only forgot my wedding ring. I know, that is kind of an important thing, but atleast I didn't forget our underwear or something like that!

Our Favorite Fall Activity!

What a thoughtful idea; my Dad raked his leaves and asked if the boys wanted to play in them. So we took him up on the offer and here's what happened:




On our way to Grandma and Grandpa's house to play in the leaves.



















It took Lanny a little minute before he realized what to do.










Christian loved to throw the leaves up and watch them fall down again.













As you can see the leaves need to be raked up again.













Landon is sitting on the shovel as we are trying to pick up all the leaves and put them in the bag.



Christian found a nice hide out!






All in all we had a great time and when we were done, Heather and I cleaned up the leaves for our Dad. Thanks for the fun time Grandpa!
