Our Christmas thus far

I decided this year to go with a kid/fun tree. So we have snowmen heads, gingerbread, candycanes, etc. So I thought it would cute if we made a popcorn garland. Well, it is really cute but I dont think it was worth the time and pin pricks.

We have frosted sugar cookies and eaten so many that we go tummy aches

Ofcourse visiting Santa is a must every year.

And we decorated a gingerbread house. It was a pretty bad looking house but the boys did it all by themselves. It was all eaten the next day. (i think the boys have my bad habit of eating way to much candy in one setting) and yes chase is winking it was the only way he would be in the picture.

man camp

I was really sick of peeling 6 oranges a day so Mike decided to start "Man Camp". Every couple nights Mike takes the older 2 boys and teaches them how to be a man. It started with teaching them how to peel an orange, do push ups and shave. I will try to take more pictures. I'm trying to think of more ideas for man camp this is what I've up with:
-gather the grabage from the bathrooms,
-take out the trash
-unload the dishwasher
-fold the laundry
-ride a 2wheeler
and so on. Some of these Mike doesn't consider the "mans" job but if the Lord is only going to bless me with boys then they are going to have to do some "women" jobs


Chase hates hiking

Thanksgiving was so much fun. We went to St. George with the Roe's. Judi got 3 condos at Las Palmas. There was plenty to do swimming, football, paintball, hiking, scooters, and ofcourse shopping. We did lose Chase though, I thought Mike had him and he thought I did. We found Chase outside riding his scooter in the street with another kid and his dad. The dad said he had been out there for about an hour!!! Thursday night the women, Alicia, and Emdawg went shopping. We started at 10:00pm at the outlets, then Walmart at 12am, then Denny's at 2am then Target at 4am. We had so much stuff we had to drop it off and Alicia she was starting to feel sick. Then we went back out to Tai Pan then home at 7:30am!!! I have to say it was one of the funnest/funniest nights I have had in a long time. We spent Friday with my family. I absolutely love my sisters. I love being with family. I am so grateful for all the wonderful examples we have in both families.

Halloween 2010

I am the WORST at taking pictures. Poor Caleb has like 5. Anyways here is our Halloween. I can't even remember what we did. I know Connor and Chase each had little parties at their schools and parades too. Again poor Caleb didn't even get dressed up! I lost his costume (chase wore it 3years ago) and i didn't want to buy another one. The ward trunk-or-treat was a blast. We had so much fun trich-or-treating with friends.
