Christmas Time is Awesome!!!

I love Christmas Time! Its so fun to decorate and shop and find the perfect thing for everyone! Jason loves getting a real tree so every year we go find a great tree to have in our home. It smells so good and looks awesome! Can you see in the front the fresh flowers too! Santa knows me well!!!
Adalee loved her jumper thing! I don't even know what it is really called! she loves to be sitting up or standing so now she can do that and play and see us all! Happy girl!
Santa brought Tolson his first Lego set. He and Daddy will have hours of fun bonding time with these. They played for hours on Christmas day and didn't even want to break for breakfast!

Adalee enjoyed opening her presents with the help of Mom, Dad or Tolson.
But she loved the paper the best!
We hope that you have all had a great Christmas. We did!!!! I love the lazy days of playing and hanging out with family that come after the craziness of the preparations! I love my family and all that I am blessed with. I am so grateful for the Savior and the special holiday that we can celebrate His birth.

Today I am exhausted! I have been up the last two nights with a sick kid. I am also Grateful!!! I am so glad that I am blessed to be this little persons mother. At around 5 this morning as I am sitting there on my sons bed with his head in my lap I was thinking about how tired I was (since I had been up since about 3am and hadn't gone to be until 11:30) I was also thinking about how good it made me feel that he wanted me! He could sleep better knowing I was there with him. I tried going back to bed several times but he would cry and wake up and then throw up again. so I stayed in his room with him and rubbed his back and just let him sleep in my lap. I was remembering how much better it made me feel when I was sick and my own mother did those things for me. SO yes I am tired and yes I do wish I got more then 3 1/2 hours of sleep last night but I am also so glad that I can be the one he wants, the one that will make him feel better. I am so blessed to be that person! Thanks you Tolson for helping me be the best mom I can be! I love you!!!

November in Pictures!

OK so I started off the month with a gonga deal! with my coupon magic I got all this ( minus the canisters) for $5.26. I don't do this very often but when I do it is so fun!
Tolson and I built this Chinese tower in honor of my parents. We have so much fun playing games, building with blocks, making cakes in the sand box and just hangin out!

Boys will be boys! Gotta love the dog in the back! We had a lot of fun with cousins this month.

Adalee bundled up with her cousin Holly during a cold day at the park.

Jason hanging out with the babies! Adalee and Cody are exactly one month apart. can you guess which one is older? (they are cousins)
Tolson and Morgan Playing in a tent with the zoo animals. We have built lots of tents in our house lately! This is one of my favorite memories as a child so I am happy to assist with the building of tents whenever possible!
So that is our month in a nut shell! We had a lot of fun at Thanksgiving with some of Jason's family coming to visit! Its so fun having family that you feel so close to. I am so grateful for my family! All of them! I am so blessed to get along with and have great relationships with my siblings and my in laws (on both sides) I came from a big family and I married into a big family! Thanks for all the love and laughter!!!!!
