Now...this has been a crazy past two weeks. We have been down to Utah and then we enjoyed having Betsy and her family up here for Christmas. We took it simple but fun. Jake told me that I have to space out my pictures and that my posts are too long. So, here is the first set. He has "instructed" me of one short post per day. [Is something wrong with this? :) ]
McKay spent Christmas in Utah with Mike and his family. We spent a few days at Grandma's before she had to go. Can you tell they are sisters? We missed her on Christmas but we are glad that she had a fun one.Nate, Betsy, and their kids came up for Christmas and spent a week with us. We even got an extra day with them when it started to snow yesterday and they decided not to go. We really enjoyed you guys! The house was way too quiet after you left. It was wierd.The first thing the guys did was go to C-A-L Ranch and buy a heavy industrial sled to pull the kids behind the four wheeler. They even lined it with a piece of foam so it didn't hurt when you went over bumps or rocks. Everyone enjoyed it.Kirsten, Aspen, and Cruz posing for a picture in the sled.
Cruz kept picking up the snow to show you. Kids always look so cute bundled up in snow clothes.
......This was the first couple days before Christmas. Sorry to keep you waiting......

Today was clean out the garage day ... I have had the garage full of stuff since the day we moved in ... anyway I found one of my old baby books and decided that Cruz & I are two peas in a pod. You be the Judge.
Then again you might notice that my sisters and I all seem to have the same haircut in the original 1978 photo.

Although I do have a few things I should be glad for. Exactly this day last year I had started my dreaded morning sickness. It was the day we had flown into Texas and picked up our suburban. I am not missing that at all. It is still fresh in my mind. I am not missing having a keen sense of smell and wishing I could spend all my time asleep so I wouldn't have to face the battle of my stomach.
Back to the nice part. Enjoy the beach for me! Hannah....do some of our famous boogie boarding, back before we knew how to do it. Aw the nice beach days.
Anyway we are looking forward to Betsy coming though. My kids are excited and I am excited that family came to us this year. I am looking forward to a nice simple Christmas and I wish everyone the same. Love you all and have fun.

My family most of all but second.....Turbo Jam :)
(I got my second edition yesterday, I was in heaven when I saw the Fed-Ex truck pull up in the driveway. Sarah and I got our butts kicked but we love it anyway!)

We started a new tradition last night. We gave our kids the option of going out into 22 degree weather, go trick-or-treating to a few houses, be freezing cold, and go home. OR Go to Toys-R-Us, Have $10 to spend on a toy, frost sugar cookies, and have fun with the fam. The kids were smart and opted the last one. They still got to dress up and celebrate.
Kirsten who was a witch came to me to put some clips in to keep her hair out of her face. Cruz came running up and wanted clips in his hair also. It gave me this IDEA...... And you have to admit....he could make a really cute girl. Although I SWORE to Jake I would never do this again. That this was the ONLY night.He enjoyed clopping around on the heels....needless to say he stumbled many times.A close up......Halloween was simple...we went to the dress up box and they picked their costumes. McKay wore her genie costume again this year to school. Since it was so cold I made her wear two layers. Kirsten was a witch. Cruz was a fighter pilot and then a girl.
Anyway on to the pictures. Cruz had been dressed up as a stealth pilot for the whole day.
