Merry Christmas

I don't know about anyone else...but for some reason I just really haven't got too excited about the holidays this year. When Christmas Eve finally got here and the grandkids came over it all seemed to be okay and very exciting. One of my favorite things to do is have the grandkids decorate the family Christmas tree. We tell them that Santa won't be able to come to Grandma and Grandpa's house because our tree isn't decorated, so will you help me get it done. They are all so excited to help. Some of the ornaments on the tree are 25 to maybe 28 years old. I just can't seem to part with them...they have a lot of sentimental value.

This was the grandkids favorite place to hang the ornaments.

Hannah...a great little helper.

Livie takes this job very seriously.

Landon really enjoyed helping. He was very picky where he placed his ornaments.

The bottom of the tree looked wonderful. :)

All my wonderful helpers. my niece Ashleigh.

My parents gave all the kids stuffed teddy bears. I know you don't have to tell me...I have the cutest grandkids ever!!!

Temple Square & Front Runner

Last night we went with Brad's ward to see the lights on Temple Square. I wonder if every year they do less and less lights. I remember years ago when it seemed like every tree was lit. They still were awesome. We had a great turn out, the kids are so much fun to be around. I keep thinking what are we going to do when this calling is over. We have way to much fun. We also road the Front Runner and Trax down and back, it's was a late night, but a great one!
A great bunch of kids.
Brad & I...of course :)


I can't even imagine all the time that went into this tree.

Passing time on Trax. When it goes around a corner the floor moves with it, so I had to see if I could balance myself...I didn't do so good, and it was very late.

Hanging on for dear life.

Landon's Birthday

Landon celebrated his 3rd birthday yesterday. I really can't believe his is that old, time really does go by way to fast. Adam & Jeana had a really fun party for him. He really likes all the super heroes, so that was the theme of the party. Everyone dressed up as their favorite hero, or they made a super hero up. There was Captain Candles, Captain Chaos, Dog Women, Spider Woman, Drama Queen, Super Purple Princess, Optimus Prime...and a ton more, I just can't think of them. These themed parties that my grand kids have for their birthday's are so much fun. A great way to celebrate. Landon we hope you had a fun day...We love you!!!

Landon got a slide for the backyard...right now it's just in his
playroom, the kids had a ton of fun on it.
