New Years 2011

This New Years we were excited because fireworks were legalized so we went to buy fireworks around 5pm and waited in line for about 40 minutes, well ryan and gabriel did, me, bella and jeremiah went to wait in the car. it was so cold! I swear it hasn't been that cold since I moved here. It was probally 30degree's. We went and had pizza at my mom's and waited till midnight to light the fireworks. All we heard all night from the kids is "when are we going to light the fireworks?" The kids had so much fun with the sparklers and all the other fireworks, Orlando bought some fireworks for us too. Gabriel stood back from the fireworks while the other kids were running around the fireworks going off. He's always been afraid of fire. Jeremiah was asleep by midnight so he didn't see them. On new years day we went up to our friends Sara & Pete Goodman's cabin(pinetop) to play in the snow for a couple of days. It was so fun, my kids could stay out in the snow all day. They went sledding and made a snowman with Orlando & Jessica. They were on their way home from spending new years eve up in pinetop so they came and spent a few hours with us on their way home. It was really fun and beautiful up there.

Funny Face's

My kids love to make us laugh especialy Gabriel. We were sitting at dinner and Gabriel and Bella were showing us their funny face's, I was cracking up and then Jeremiah said "mommy, daddy watch this" and this is his funny face below. He is always copying Gabriel and Bella. It was so funny! My kids are always making me laugh, they are so wonderful and life would be so boring without them. I can't remember how sitting at the dinner table with just me and Ryan was. Probally so quiet and uninterrupted conversations but I don't remember. All I know now is goofiness, loudness and of course fighting. Life is so amazing!

Christmas 2010

Christmas was fun and all my kids were healthy thank goodness! the past years they have always been sick on christmas, at least one of them. The kids woke up on their own this year, we normally have to wake them up but they woke up at 7:30am. They were so excited and it was fun to watch them open their presents. Jeremiah opened his megablocks first then didn't want to open anymore presents. The kids would pass the presents to him and he would push them away and say "NO!" It was so cute. We normally go eat breakfast at my moms house on christmas morning but this year we stayed home and ate breakfast and relaxed at home until about 3pm then went to my mom's.

Christmas Eve at my moms house. Gabriel and Bella didn't want to put their christmas outfits on and take pictures. Jeremiah saying "cheese!"
