So lucky!

We feel so lucky to have Michelle live with us! The kids love her so much! She came home from work last night and took time to sit and read stories with them, even though she had already watched them that morning. We are so grateful to have her in our family!

That's what HE said

Yesterday Mason was standing in the window holding a piece of plastic. He said to me
"Look Mom, the sun is hitting this and the light is bouncing off. That is called refraction!"

Holy cow, what am I going to do with this kid?????

Christmas Morning!

Get ready for picture overload, sorry!
Mason wanted to buy Victoria and Daddy a present with his own money. He chose these dress up shoes for Victoria! She loves shoes so it was perfect!
Aryah Eve in the outfit Grandma Vickie and Grandpa Jeff gave her.

AIR HOCKEY!!! How fun!

Victoria got a Kitchen from Santa, both her and Mason love it!

Trying out her new bike. She's a little small for it still, but she sure tried!

Mason picked out this cup and paid for it with his own money for Daddy. Too cute!

Victoria loves baby dolls!

Little Miss

We had to play with each toy before we could open the next present. It took us ALL day! We finally finished at 5:00 pm.

Concentrating so hard!

Banana break!

RyRy (nickname courtacy of Tori) hanging with Daddy

Mason is SO scared of this game! He cried and cried when he got buzzed!

These Nerf guns have been a lot of fun!
And the best present of the day award goes to:

The Vincent Van Gough painting! Yes, I know. My 4 year old is very different! He was so excited that Santa remembered to bring him his painting!


We had a fun Christmas Eve party again this year with friends who don't have family around and who don't travel for Christmas. We ate lots of food and played some fun games!
Tori and I were team mates for Gingerbread Man and white elephant. The best white elephant of the night... A live gold fish!

Sadly this is the only picture we got of Aryah.

We had 5 4 year olds!!! we had 10 kids 5 and under!
