The Christmas season!

Making a gingerbread house!

Bella was so excited about opening you can tell!!
The kids opened up pjs and pillowpets that I made for them!

sBella got a bumble bee, Micah got a penguin, Megan got a lady bug, and Brooke got a pink unicorn! I was pretty stressed trying to get these made before Christmas Eve! It was a big project! They really liked them though, so it made it all worth it!

The kids wanted a wii real bad for Christmas! Thank you Santa Claus!!!

We had to wake Bella up finally to open presents, and she was being so cute! She had thrown up during the night so I wasn't sure how she would feel Christmas morning, but she did just great! I thought these pictures of her were so funny! She is our little cheeser!

I know....I look absolutely horrible, but hey, it's Christmas morning! But just look at that beauty in my hands! I have been waiting for that baby for awhile! I am sooooo excited!!

Boyd made Micah an easel for Christmas, so maybe now Megan and Micah won't fight over hers constantly now!

We were suppose to go sleigh riding with some friends and our car battery was dead! Boyd was still at work, and I have no idea how to jump start it! The kids were so disappointed! Megan was so mad at me that she wouldn't even look at the camera....because after all it was my fault that the car wouldn't start!!!

The rest of the kids seem to think it was still fun though!

This is the giant snow man and snow cat the Boyd and the kids made on the first big snow we had of the winter! It was so big!

Tis the season....

Well, we are in full swing of the Christmas season! I can't believe we have a week until Christmas! We are getting very excited! I have been really lacking on my posts lately. Bella is walking all over the place....hitting her head on everything, but doing very well. We go down to get her MRI on Tuesday and are praying for good results. I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season! Merry Christmas!!!

This little stinker is now walking! We are so thrilled with the progress she has made! She seems to be doing really well, all except for her head size. I took her in for her 1 year the other day and the doctor said her head had grown too much again, so we have to go down to primary children's hospital next month for another MRI. Anyway, she is walking all over the house now, so we have to be very careful not to keep the bathroom door open. And my kids are horrible at this. Well, Micah used the toilet and plugged it, and left the lid up with the door, I find Bella in the bathroom, elbow deep in the toilet, playing in the poop and water! She put a piece of toilet paper up to her mouth when I was diving for her! So gross!!!! I was mortified! I was so upset about this. If there is anything in this world that grosses me out the most it is the toilet, and of course it had to have just gotten used! My poor little Bella had her first swim in the toilet.....grrrr Micah!!!!

Poor Boise State

Well, my husband is heartbroken over the Boise State game! They lost the other night, which they haven't lost in forever....I don't know how long exactly. But they really were having a big year this year, and now it all came crashing to a stop the other night. Boyd has been moping around all depressed for the last week because of it! I fell really bad that they didn't win, and hope they can have another good year next year. He still is a die hard fan though!

My funny story...

Do you remember my freezer meals, and how I had a funny story? Well, here it is. If you are easily offended, stop reading right now.....because this could be offensive, but it is really funny. Well, Brooke likes to cook with me and when I was doing bread she was making a little man with the bread dough. I didn't think much of it, until she showed it to me. Then I was a little disturbed. She said, "Look at my little man I made, and look at his little weenie." And sure enough she had created a little man, with a little weenie! I thought it was so darn funny, I had to take a picture of it and share it. Hopefully you can appreciate it as much as I did. I am so grateful for my little Brooke and the happiness she brings to our home.

Strep throat!

My kids are all sick!!!! Megan, Micah, and Brooke have strep throat, and Bella is sick as well, but she is too little to get strep I guess. Anyway, I had to post this picture of their antibiotics because I thought it was funny at how much we have! I hope this is the only time we get strep this winter!

Freezer meals.....

I froze bread, rolls, bread sticks, cookies, and french bread
I had lots of help...which I have a funny story to tell, I will do a post about it later...keep you checking back! :)
Just the beginning!!!
Meatballs, that got burned....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr............
shredded chicken that got put into all sorts of things! I think I cooked three crockpots full of chicken!
ground beef that went into meatballs, meatloaf, casseroles, etc.....

Well, I took on doing a month of freezer meals....I think I would rather have my teeth pulled than go through that again! It was not fun. I don't know how these mom's make freezer meals all the time! Maybe I took on too much at once, but it wasn't fun. My poor kids suffered as well! But now, weeks later, I do have to say, it is sooooo nice to just grab something out of the fridge and pop it in the oven when you have one of those crazy days, that dinner was not going to happen! So, maybe I will try it one more time. We will see!!!

Pumpkin patch and corn maze

For preschool we took the kids to the local corn maze and pumpkin patch for a little field trip. It was a lot of fun.
