Day After Christmas

Broxton and Jax playing with Broxton's christmas present from his alaska cousin Keagan. Thank you so much Keagan I love it!!!


This last picture is actually Christmas Eve with their new pajamas. They looked so cute but they have grown so much but they already need bigger ones. We had so much fun on Christmas, I think the boys got most of what they wanted. We loved all the snow but it was quite scary driving out to Murtaugh and then back again in the dark. But we all made it and we are safe. I love this time of year being with family and friends. I missed my two sisters who were not here, its just not the same. So I am really looking forward to next year when everyone will be here. Anyway Merry Christmas to everyone and I hope you all had a great year!!!

Christmas eve day!!!

Broxton and I braved the weather and the roads and went to Mimi's house to help her make some candy and cakes!! I didn't think we were going to make in the red baron but it pulled through and we made it. But I decided I would feel safer on the way home in my own car so I made Collin come and switch me cars. After several hours at grandma's we headed home and again hit several snow drifts!! I really need to get a picture of the snow because I have not seen snow drifts like these in years!!

This is what happens when Kortni's girls come home. All the boys got their finger nails painted and Broxton got makeup put on!!! We dressed up in my jewelry and put on plays!!! They played barbies, yes Branson played too. We had so much fun and we are so very sad they are gone. We miss them tons!!!

I bet you can't guess who santa is??? This is the preschool party at wheels with a special visitor!!! The kids again had a wonderful time with the pinatas and all the space!!! The kids got a hold of my camera so we had some pretty funny pictures!!! And its a good thinh Aunt Kortni showed up to tend Broxton for me cause the helpers were not very helpful!!!

Preschool parties

Okay finally here are some pictures. This is the pj's party. All the kids brought blankets and pillows and just had a wonderful time. They were all so excited that they didn't really want to listen to anything or anyone but we had fun anyway. The first picture is over Broxton's mean face as Branson calls it!!! Branson took the picture!!! Anyway fun fun fun!!! I love all these kids!! They are the cutest ever!!!

I feel bad I have not put any pictures up lately but my new camera does not like my computer. It won't let me load any of my pictures and I don't have one of those slot things to put the picture card into. So sorry everyone this blog is really boring without any pictures to show all the fun stuff we have been doing lately. Branson has taken some really cute pictures so I hope to go into town tomorrow and get them all put on a cd and then post something with pictures!!!

Yesterday I finally got the privilege to help sheet rocking at the house. I loaded up all the kids and we went down to help Collin in the basement. I soon found out that I have no arm strength at all over my head. We put up 7 sheets on the ceiling and I was done and the kids were too. They did pretty good until it got to dark to see anything upstairs so they came down and drilled holes into spare pieces of wood. They built a cute little fort in the garage with left over Sheetrock pieces. So I am really not sure if we helped Collin very much or if we added more stress. I have to go help again tomorrow so maybe I will actually get a picture to prove that I really did do something!!!!

Hopefully it won't snow too much tonight so I can finish Christmas shopping tomorrow. I am really starting to stress. I am usually ready by now so I am extremely nervous. Oh well I guess I will get done what I get done and then the rest will wait until next year. I'm glad we are getting snow I just wish I wouldn't be just a procrastinator. One day I will be ready I just hope it won't be too late!!!

Preschool Kids are so Funny!!

This morning I was suppose to go to Twin to pick up somethings and it was snowing so I went to the preschool to see if my mom needed me or if I should try to go to Twin. Well we were talking in front of the kids and my grandma asked me why I needed to go to Twin and I said because Burley has nothing. Well this started up a conversation with the kids, one of them said Wal Mart has tons of christmas stuff and I should go there. Another one said Wal Mart has everything and I said yes they do except for the showerhead that I need and they just insisted that I needed to go to Wal-Mart. So as I turned to leave one kid shouted GO TO WAL-MART!!! Needless to say I stayed and helped at school!!! They are just too cute!!!

Today I had the priviledge to go to the Nutcracker with my Grandma, Mom and sister Kortni. It was the 20th Anniversary so Kortni got to go on stage during the intermission. It was kindof fun to watch again after 15 years of not seeing it. I think I could still remember most of the dances and I really don't remember being in too many of them but I did sit through a lot of years of it. It was quite interesting to see the last 20 years of Clara's!!! It was fun but I did miss the first half because Broxton was quite tired and didn't want to sleep with all the noise!!! Thanks for the opportunity Kortni!!!

Ever had a DAY!!!!

Have you ever had one of those days where you think can anything else go wrong???? Well yesterday was one of those days for me. It all started at the festival of trees where I had one of my choking attacks and spent quite a long time in the bathroom and while I was trying to get over that Bridger called from school saying he wasn't feeling too good. So needless to say it took me an hour to go get him and he was just worried about his teacher cause she had been gone for a few days with her husband in the hospital. So we are going to have the counselor check on him today to make sure he is okay. Then later last night after we had all got home and got Bridger in bed Collin came back from working on the house because he had sliced his finger with the razor blade. So we were trying to find some super glue that was not dried up to glue his finger shut and being the little helper that Branson is he found some and some how ended up glueing his eye shut. He has it in his hair and on his eyebrow and of course his eye is shut and then more on his cheek and his chest. So we spent most of the night trying to get his eye unstuck with out having to take him to the emergency room(which posion control suggested that we do) Needless to say we had to wait for him to fall asleep and then cut his beautiful eyelashes. I really hope they grow back. Now I am just waiting for him to wake up to see if we got all of it out so he can see nad hopefully nothing happened to his eye!!! ahahahah what a day!!!

Once again I have no pictures of the fun things we did because my camera stinks. Kalan even took it on there all nighter at Best Buy and was going to buy me a new camera because he couldn't get it to work at all. Anyway after all the fustrations he didn't buy me a new one. I am very sad cause he didn't get my computer either. Is it really worth it to stay all night in the cold if you are twenty people back and are not going to get what you went for??? Anyway I got alittle ahead of myself. Korbi and Kalan were here all week for thanksgiving. We had big plans for the week including going to TWILIGHT again but Stephen seemed to ruin those plans every night. So once again sad to say we did not go. Korbi and I did alot together. We went shopping and spent 20 minutes at the D.I. looking at six pairs of shorts with Branson so he could decide what ones would fit him. Oh my little shopper what am I going to do with him???? For Thanksgiving day we went out to Widmier's and had a very nice dinner with just us and Collin's parents and then we came in to Grandma's just in time to have dessert and go through the paper to plan out our shopping day on BLACK FRIDAY!!! Needless to say we finally decided that Walmart had the best deals so the girls went to wally world and the boys went to twin to get computers. I have to say I think the girls had better luck than the boys did and we didn't get up until 3:45 a.m. and we even got hot donuts and got to wait inside the store!!!! SORRY GUYS!! Thats what ya get for not taking us to TWILIGHT!!! Just kidding. ANyways after an eventful shopping experience we got home at 8:30 and then took Grandpa Beck to the Albion College to take a stroll down memory lane. I have to say its almost as scary during the day as it is at night with out the people walking around trying to scare you. I think Grandpa really enjoyed himself so I am glad we all braved the wind and went with him. Now on Saturday Kalan decided to rearrange the upstairs and my mom's room so we spent all day destroying the house and then trying to put it all back together again and I have to say Kalan did a great job decorating the upstairs!! Thanks BUBBA!! But I do have to wonder were am I going to put all my stuff now???? One room is hard to keep five peoples stuff in especially a pack rat like Branson!!! Sorry sweety I really do love you just not all your stuff!!!
Collin has been putting in a lot of hours on our house and dad and Stephen went down and helped him on saturday. THey finally got all of the ceiling done. I think that they are pretty upset with me and the ideas I did in the bedroom but I am hoping all their hard work will pay off in the end!!! THANKS HONEY I LOVE YOU TONS!!! You have worked so hard and I want to let you know how much I love you!!! We will make it through all this and have a wonder house to call our own!!! SOMEDAY!!!!
I forgot to mention that Jake decided to join us on Friday and we got to spend the weekend with her also. Sorry Jake my mind is going faster than my poor fingers can type and it was such a whirlwind of a week!!! Thanks pregnant lady for tackling that TV assignment!!! WE love it!!!
So after all that we are finally settling down and trying to get caught up with our normal life!!! Hahah is there any such thing!!!!
THANKS KALAN, KORBI, and JAKE for a great memorable week!! I love you all tons and miss you so much when you leave.

Best Weekend Ever!!!

I just got back from the funnest thing I have done in a long time. Some people like my brother Kalan and my husband think I have really lost it but I have to say that I am not the only one. I was with 225 other people. I went to a TWILIGHT party in Pocatello. We got Twilight T- shirts, bags and even got bite tatoos. We got to ride in a limo to the theatre and then get out on the red carpet. The girl that put on the party was amazing. She opened up her house to all these crazy Twilight fans and put so much work into making sure we were having a great time. I have to say I loved the movie and can't wait until I can go back to see it. So please hurry and get here Korbi so we can go together!!! I think this is seriously gonna take over my life for quite awhile. I don't have any pictures because my camera sucks so Jake, Shannon, and Shantala will be posting all the pictures on their blogs!!! But it was so worth going and I can't wait for the next party!!!

My bathtub!!! I am so excited for my own bathtub, But I think we are going to have to build a little step to get into it. It's a lot deeper than I thought it would be. OOPS!!! Oh well Collin is a pretty handy guy he will figure something out!!!
WAHOO the insulation is complete!!! I can't believe it is all finally coming together. I know I know I have a long way to go but this is an accomplishment I think!!! It's really starting to take shape!!! I can't wait for dry wall to be put up!! Then that's when all the fun starts!!!

Just a picture of my front door!!! MY CUTE LITTLE HOUSE!!!

Saturday Fun!!

Yes I am a little behind but here ya are. A couple of saturdays we decided to see how many of us would fit in the tractor with dad. It's a good thing these newer tractors have a kids seat and a place behind the drivers seat to stand or we wouldn't have all fit. The boys loved it they road with Collin for most of the time. Of Broxton and I got out after a couple of rounds. Buddy of course got in on all the action. He followed the tractor back and forth all day long. It was so good to do something on the farm and something different than our usual stuff. What a nice family activity!!!

Who is Who???

Okay so the first picture should be really easy sine it has the date on it but can you guess who the other two are??? I think that I need to find more pictures that are more the same age so you can really see how similar they all are. I thought this was fun to go through all there pictures. I was even having a hard time with some of them and I am glad I started separating them a long time ago!!!!
