Santa came and all the fun filled parties!

We had a wonderful Christmas... The kids were super excited, Especially Lundyn who woke up at 3:00 am and continued to wake up every hour until finally at 7:00 we let them get up. (needless to say I was freakin exhausted) But just the look on there faces and how happy they were made me forget just how tired I was.  Enjoy all the pictures!

Christmas Eve Speechly party!

Fordes first Christmas... He loved the wrapping paper but everything else he didnt even care about. This age they dont get it or understand.

Grandpa and Forde!

The kids in there matching Gap shirts!

Christmas time!

I love this time of the year all the holiday lights and music and yes I even love all the crazy shoppers... it is just so much fun.... Well lately I have been thinking lot about people who dont have alot and how very blessed we have been and so I thought what better way to show holiday spirit than to help others in need... Our neiborhood had a sub for santa type thing and we decided to go ahead and get some stuff for families in need and children and I cant tell you how good I felt after, knowing that all the stuff the whole area pitched in to get for people will help and go along way for them. I just think even if you only have very little to give it will make all the difference and I promise it will also make you feel so good as well. 

       We went to the lights on monday night with the fam and it was amazing hardley any people there at all, The kids had a great time. It isnt the greatest picture since I forgot our camera and I only had my phone...

   Well this one is a little late but a couple weeks ago we went and saw beauty and the beast play
It was really good I saw it the week before with the girls from the ward so we thought we would take the girls well Zion and Kylan Loved it but unfortunately Lundyn was not about to stay, You know sometimes it hit and miss with her you just never know if it will be a good day or a bad day... But I feel like thats how it is for most people... :)  So if I dont get around to posting anything else soon because i am super busy have a Merry Christmas......

 This year was yet another busy day we started off by having Thanksgiving dinner at Cyd's house with my family, and then later going to Nates fam's house to have more dessert and make ginger bread houses... This was my first year I made homemade ginger bread I was so excited.... Here are some random pictures of the day :) enjoy!

   We actually started off the day by going on a walk down the street from our home its the prettiest walk way right by hobs pond. I love it there We put the camera on auto and took some fam pic's minus Forde who was sleeping in the stroller...

            Look at my little chubby man!!!! Oh he is the most sweetest little guy ever...
We had such a great Thanksgiving and are so grateful we were able to spend it with the both families we are so blessed for all of them.

Birthday Party and drama....

Today we had the girls birthday party they will be 6 on tuesday, the 25th... They have been excited about this party for so long now and woke up early to help me decorate.... All was going well until......... Kylan was running towards me slipped and fell and hit her chin and cut it open on the corner of the tile stairs. So Nate had to run her into the dr's to get all stitched up... Well she is ok but she ended up missing the entire party and got back for only the last 10 minutes :( I tried to wait but when you have all these kids start coming you kinda have to start the event. I think Lundyn kinda enjoyed having the spotlight all to her self....  :)

       Yes I made this cake... and I know it kinda looks like a little kid did this right? But for me it                                                                 was pretty dang good.

                                                      One of the birthday girls.


                 And finally Ky has arrived (the other Bday girl!) with her wounded chin... 
               Except you cant see it since it is underneath her chin...

 A Big thanks to Kelsie for getting the pizza last minute and helping out.... (since Nate was with Ky) Thanks everyone we all had a great time!!!!

Thankful Month!

  Ok so every November I go through the same things..... I get so overwhelmed and BUSY! This month is by far the busiest month of my whole year well and December, I have the girls Birthday and planning and preparing there party is always alot of work, Then there is Thanksgiving and having 2 families to try and see, we do switch off every other year so that makes it nicer but we do still try to see both which makes it a long and very tiring holiday sometimes I wish the holidays were just more relaxing :) But I cant complain since we have family to celebrate with. 
                              And then I get stressed out because I am always trying to get Christmas shopping done this month as well, and Yes I am one of those people who love the after Thanksgiving day sales, I wake up and leave around 5 am and make a day of it. And it always stresses me out also because of all the people and crowds which I hate..... But yet year after year I still end up going, and every year I swear I will have all my shopping done by October and then relax the last 2 months of the year but that NEVER happens... So as I was sitting down today for the little time I had to sit, I was thinking about all the things I had to get done and then it dawned on me I really should be focused this month on things I am Thankful for Right?
   I mean that is why we celebrate Thanksgiving after all and I really dont think about all that I have to be thankful for as much as I should and that it shouldnt be just This time of the year we think about that. This whole Holiday season we should try and have the holiday spirits in our homes and hearts. 
    I love this time of the year and I just would like to take a minute to say that I am so extremly Thankful for my family all of them My Husband Kids, My sister and in laws and especially my Mom and Dad they are the best and they do so much for me and are always so supportive and I know they would do just about anything for me and my Family, And My kids just love them so much. So I guess my challenge to all of you and myself is to everyday this season stop and think about all that you and I have to be Thankful for and really what this season is all about...

Ok so Lundyn has been tagged and I have to post 5 things about Lundyn....

  1. When Lundyn was born she weighed 4 lbs and was in the hospital for over 6 weeks, 
When she came home she was on a feeding tube and the docter had to teach me how to insert and feed at home, It was one of the scariest things I ever had to do. She was on her feeding tube until she was 4 months old and could eat all of her meals on her own.

2. Lundyn loves peas and applesauce they are by far her favorite foods. She would take them over almost any candy any day... except m @ m's. 

3. Lundyn loves the ninja turtles, If I would let her she would watch the movies everyday... We have all 3 of them. She also has donnatello action figure and carrys him around all the time.

4. Lundyn loves to go to the dr. I dont know why, Ok well actually I do she likes PCH because they always give her the best toys when she goes :)

5. Lundyn is by far my sweetest child she is so loving and is always willing to help out, she loves to help clean cook or bake and always and I mean always wants to be where I am at all times, and if I walk out of a room and she notices she will get up and find me.. It is kinda nice most the time.
