Merry Christmas!

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Clause is coming to town.!

Only one more week and the big man himself will be making his way to visit good little boys and girls (Have you yourself been naughty or nice?) This year none of the kids were afraid of Santa. Lil' E had no problem telling Santa that he wanted James for Christmas and Doble wanted Thomas. Doble jumped right on Santa's lap and said, "choo choo". If Santa holds up his end of the deal this year, it will be a Thomas the Train Christmas. The boys are so into Thomas (Doble especially). Everything down to the wrapping paper is Thomas. It is fun seeing the kids get so excited for Christmas and Lil' E is now at the age where we can teach him that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth. At first he thought it was Santa's Birthday, but now he is able to tell us that on Christmas is Jesus' Birthday.

We hope that you and your family have
A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy and Healthy New Year!

Finally Some Family Pictures!

Life has been pretty busy lately with Christmas approaching. Everyone has asked why I haven't posted a new blog in awhile. Well I have taken on many new projects. I just finished making each of the kids their own stockings. I am making blankets for the boys with matching pajama bottoms and pillow cases. My dad asked me to put together the Ward Christmas Program for Sunday. So with all those projects plus the normal everyday things that a mother of three does, blogging just hasn't been my number one priority (so get off my back Amy :p). However, we were able to manage to get some family pictures taken. I have decided that the days of everyone looking at the camera are long gone. It is too hard with three kids to make sure EVERYONE is looking AND smiling. We were able to get a few that turned out okay.

I couldn't decide which one to put in so you get the honor of seeing them both.

These are a few of my favorite things...
