Off to Phoenix

We are headed to Phoenix Saturday so I wont be blogging for a week. But be sure and check back at the first of the year as I am sure I will have many fun things to write about. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Big tumble

So I dont have a picture of this mostly because the bruises and scabs hurt a lot worse than they look so I think I will get more sympathy if I dontshow my owies. Tuesday morning I went up to get Ryan and as I was coming down the stairs I slipped backwards and slid a good four steps down the stairs. I ended up with rug burn on both my elbow and my back as well as some deep bruises. Ryan was not hurt but he was very scared and he started screaming. As it was 5:30 in the morning and I made a huge ruckus I woke up Jeff who came scrambling to my rescue......well untill he saw that I was not broken then he went back to bed. Jessie is still talking about the "monster" she heard that night. Jeff tried to tell her it was just mommy but she doesnt want to believe it. I think it is just an exscuse to not go to bed. My elbows still hurt and I will be happy to show you my wounds if you shoot me an e-mail and ask. :)

Merry Christmas 4th ward!

We had our ward Christmas party last night. It was so much fun. The food was great and the program was excellent. It was a live nativity. We couldnt pin the girls down long enough to get a family pic but here are a few from the party.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy

My sweet little guy! The time has simply flown, it has already been six weeks. You get cuter every day. It always amazes me how much my heart fills with love when I hold you. When I am not holding you I am waiting and thinking about the next time you can be in my arms. I am so totally completly head over heels for you. I would smother you with kisses every moment of every day if I could. We wanted and waited for you for so long and now you are here and we are a better more complete family because of you. I LOVE YOU!

Ryans Swing

Ryan is starting to like his swing more and more. He actually took a nap in it the other day. The girls think it is the coolest swing ever. Jessie is always turning the music on and dancing to it.


We went caroling last night at the St George Care Center it is always fun to bring a smile to their faces when we sing. The children went there a few weeks ago and sang too.


The leaf sucker came by this morning so Jeff went out and swept all the leaves to the street. The girls had so much fun jumping in the big pile. But they got VERY cold too.

Ready For christmas?

Ready For Christmas

“Ready for Christmas” she said with a sigh,
As she gave a last touch to the gifts piled high.
Then wearily sat for a moment and read
Til’ soon, very soon, she was nodding her head.

Then quietly spoke a voice in her dream;
“Ready for Christmas, while holding a grudge!
Perhaps you had better let God be the judge.
Why, how can the Christ child come and abide
In a heart that is selfish and filled with pride?”

“Ready for Christmas, when only today
A beggar lad came and you turned him away
Without even a smile to show that you cared!
So little he asked—it could have been spared.”

“Ready for Christmas, You’ve worked, it is true,
But just doing the things that you wanted to do.
Ready for Christmas! Your circle’s too small.
Why, you are not ready for Christmas at all.”

She awoke with a start, and a cry of despair,
“There’s so little time, and I’ve still to prepare!
Oh, Father, forgive me, I see what you mean;
To be ready means more than a house swept clean.”

“Yes, more than the giving of gifts and a tree,
It’s a heart swept clean that He wants to see,
A heart that is free from bitterness, and sin,
Ready for Christmas means ready for Him!”

So our first big activity of the season was cancelled. :( Every year our ward gets together around the beginning of December and rakes the leaves of all the familys in the ward. It was cancelled because of all the rain we have been having lately. Well at least its not snow! Next up is the stake blood drive next wednesday. Yeah I am so glad that I can give blood again!

Merry Christmas to me

christmas came early to our house this year. We didnt intend on buying a microwave last night but when we found this one in the color we wanted and it was marked down $150 we decided to get it now. so we have spent the last couple of hours trying it out. It is a very cool microwave, and it frees up a whole lot of counter space for me too. Our kitchen is slowly taking shape. The next item on our list is the tile.........that will be a big project.
