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!!!

I wish I would have known that before I cut my little boys beautiful eyelashes!!! Oh well you live and learn right!!!! I do need to thank the person who posted that on the internet because I would have never tried it. So internet is a wonderful thing for things like this!!!!

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!!!
