Santa Claus is Coming to Town

First off we would just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. We are so luck to have such amazing family and friends. We hope all of you have safe and happy holiday season!

You can never see Santa to many times right? Well we had Santa, aka Grandpa/Papa/Howie/My dad! come up to our house for all the grand kids. It was so much fun, My dad was the perfect Santa he had all of us laughing so hard. Thanks dad your the best! He are some picture of this special occasion.

This is my nephew Terron. He is the oldest grand kid so he got to go first, he is holding a boot thanks to Santa. Santa explained that times are hard right know and that our Country is in a recession. He also told Terron to hold on to hope and that hopefully next year Santa would bring him the other boot.:)

This is Maci, She loves Santa and was so excited to tell him all her Christmas Wish List.

Here are the two boys both thought Santa was Cool, but they still weren't to sure of the guy in the big red suit.

Deighton however was not having anything to do with Santa, until Santa pulled from his magic sack a special treat for him. That calmed him down just long enough to get his goodies and get the heck off his lap!

Conner sat with Santa but wouldn't look at any one! He is at that age were if he can't see you, you can't see him! Wish that worked when you got older! haha
All the grand kids, minus Eilee!
Thanks Dad we all had fun!

the BIG red FIRE truck

It's starting to look like Christmas... I bundled Conner up in ever pair of long johns he owns and put him in his wind pants! Haha he reminded my of the kid off the Christmas Story, He didn't really care for the snow yet, I think the crunch under his feet threw him off, but it was fun watching him walk around with the look of "what the heck" on his face!
The other day I helped Rayna and Aaron out and watched Aadon ALL DAY! Besides getting peed on, a few little fights and a couple of time outs the boys had a lot of fun together. I even went to the store with them and the both did really good. Afterwards we went to the Fire Dept to see Devin and show Aadon, "the BIG red fire trucks" as he so bluntly put it all day:) He was in Heaven at first seeing so many truck together. Dev let the boys crawl all over the trucks, put on the helmet and head phone. Then Conner pushed the buttons to turn the sirens on and Aadon was not impressed. He yelled at Conner and said, "Conner, no touching the noise, NO NOISE Conner"! Aadon wouldn't get back in the trucks till Devin assured him they would not go off again. When we left I asked Aadon if he had fun and he told me he did, but "he no like the noise and lights that Conner did"! HAHA they are so fun at this age.

Christmas is getting close!

OK so it has been a while since I posted again!! SO here are some things we have been up to lately. Our darling little Conner hates, I means HATES his crib, he started climbing out of it when he was about 11 months old! So we though that we would just turn it into the toddler bed so that he would not hurt himself! He does do much better now that he can come and go as he pleases, Its so funny/annoying in the middle of the night if he wakes up all you hear is crying and little feet running on the tile! I know that one of these days we will miss this stage, but that day is not here yet!!!


This year for Thanksgiving we spent it with my mom's family in Mesa. It was fun seeing family that we don't see very often. We have so much to be thankful, we are healthy and we are together and not a whole lot else matter. Thanks to the Robinson Family for letting us stay with them in the BEAUTIFUL home.


I was so excited this year to put up the tree and have Conner help! Lets just say it was a headache ha ha, my perfect little tree is only decorated from the middle up. Seems that some one in our family can't keep their little fingers off all the GLASS balls. Oh Conner is always into something!


We decided to take Conner to Woodland lake park to see Santa. It was a LONG COLD line but Conner was pretty Patience, He was so entertained by all the people, the singing and the lady with the darn DOG! But after waiting in line for almost 2 hours he was tired and not in the mood for Santa. He did sit on his lap but that was about it! Oh well at least he didn't cry:)


All I have to say is that 18months is way to long for nursery! Conner started walking about 9-10 months and has been on the go every since, so for the last 8 months Conner and I just cruse the halls. He did so good for is 1st nursery and colored his little paper... so cute! The best part about the hole nursery thing is when I went to get him he gave me a HUGE hug. For as hipper as he is, he is still just the sweetest,cuddliest kid.


This week LSFD did another live burn. These are so fun to go and watch. I as a little late getting there so I didn't get hardly any pictures. Devin got to pump the truck so we got to stay with him most of the time.
