Talking to Santa

There was an hour that you could get on the ham radio and talk to Santa.... here's of line.

Post soccer ice cream


My brother and Dad put these into my laundry room today! You don't even know how excited I am. This will make laundry just that much easier. This picture is Seth "building". He saw my Dad making the wood and walls to put the shelves in.... so he grabbed a pencil and was helping.  Monday will be painting and Yay!

Christmas catch up #2

 Then there was Christmas morning.  We put kids to bed, Sam stayed up to help us fill stockings this year.... he loved it.  We told kids not to get up before 6:30, and in spite of her 3 clocks, Ada woke up at 5 and just couldn't go back to sleep.  She came in our room three times and woke up Sam and Evelyn.  She even helped them get ready in their Sunday clothes so that they could play with their gifts until it was time for 9 am church.  We gave in at 6 and woke Seth to go down with everyone.  He wasn't too happy about it until he saw his firetruck.  Then he was happy as a clam.  We didn't do a huge Christmas, but the kids loved what they got.  Legos, mp3 players, piano music, books, games and truck/trains were among the highlights.

Jer had the day after Christmas off and we had lots of snow.  We decided to go sledding with our Tarkington cousins on Grandma's hill.  It ended up being more of a mosh pit... they kept tackling each other and running into each other on purpose.  They were happy about it until the very end when Ada got kicked in the face with a snowy boot.... she was less upset about the boot and more upset about the snow.  Seth was interested in what they were doing, but kind of intimidated too.  He went down once, then took his own sled and walked up and down the hill over and over.

Christmas catch up

We've had a lot that we've done since the 17th of Dec.  I was so busy that I didn't even think about blogging.  We met my family in Salt Lake for my brother's birthday service project, dinner and Christmas lights.  The 18th was my wonderful hubby's birthday, and we did our annual Christmas chocolate party.  Jer and his Dad are so wonderful during that.  We've had family parties with both sides of the family, including Nativities and sing-alongs.  My whole family met up at McKay and Sophie's house for a Nativity, dinner, Christmas games and a movie.  Ggma, James and Em's family, Marg and Matt's family, Amy and Jon's family and us all met at Grandma and Grandpa Robertson's house for a Nativity, dinner, stories and singing.

A quick one

I've done the Wheelhouse's pictures several times in the past, but this year they had a hard time coordinating a schedule for a family picture.  We had about 20 mins the day after Christmas in front of their home.  So that's what we did.  They're a beautiful family and are very patient with me while I get things set up.  Love these guys so much.  So glad I get to know them.
