Not tagging anyone! And no more tags for me!!! Too hard!!!
At the last minute I decided to take my kids to our Wards Family Disco Dance- we ended up having a pretty good time, I had fun trying to capture the moments! Below is some video of the fun! I'm feeling inspired to have a disco ball in my basement- the kids loved it!

He's an awesome Guitar Hero!
He's fun hanging out with!
He's the oldest boy cousin in our family, and is nice to everyone!
No matter how much we threaten him- he still pretty much ruins 80% of family photos because he can't resist doing something crazy like this!
I just love him because he is a kind person and always happy!
Have a good day Wes!

Since Brody only made it to about 3 days of Preschool this year. I was told about this website www.starfall.com . I put it on our desktop so it would be easy for him to find. I have noticed a couple of times that he was on this particular site, but didn't pay much attention to it. Anyways, so the other day we were walking in a parking lot and I heard him say r-o-t-i-ssssssss (the sound)-i- o-vvvvv(again, the sound). I turned around and saw the word VISITOR painted on the pavement. I asked him the letters again and he knew them all. He is 3 1/2 and I have not worked with him a minute on this stuff. The next day, I went over all the letters and he knew about 20 of them. I have never had one of my kids know his letters and sounds before Kindergarten- I'm just not that type of a mom to sit down and work with them on it. I really think it had a lot to do with this web site- it is very kid friendly and interactive. He does parts of sentences, shapes, sounds, colors, parts of the body, and probably more. Go check it out!

and so I HAD to say something! Anyways, I know sometimes he reads these at work, and I just wanted to say that I was sorry and that I really appreciate all he does for me! By the way- here is what they looked like with the cute little tags. (Again, totally not my idea- thanks to Kanoe and Syd for the cute idea and supplies!)

Remember these girls? Some of my gal pals and I were able to get away long enough to have lunch together. From left to right, Dawn Rogers Mattison, Mistie Davis Rash, Stacy Malone Tanner, myself, Mindy Bailey Thompson. Kim Krummenacher Huber and Heidi Reheis Baker joined us as well, I forgot to take the picture before they left. I love these gals and love that even though we don't see each other much, it is like no time has passed when we do get together. This year is our 20 year reunion! We are seriously not that old- right?!
The Cummard's hosted our 2nd Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Night. We are getting smarter each year we do it! Last year we thought it would be so easy to just buy the Costco kit- NIGHTMARE! The glue/frosting wouldn't harden fast enough for them and so decorating your house as it was falling apart was not so much fun. So, Syd, Cheryl, and Summer Cummard all stayed up the night before and put enough houses together with graham crackers and glue/ frosting- it took the 3 of them a few hours! But on Monday night when we all arrived, the houses were cemented together so well we begun decorating. My kids loved it! Who am I kidding- I loved it! Here are some photos of the evening.....
Hilary and AshleySweet Sally!
Alice- bottle breakThe next generation of trouble??Grace was so proud!Chamberlin boys weren't missing this for anything!Grandpa was trying to take credit for the fine work Macy did on her g-house.
...and a sister's picture.
1st Annual Sister's Weekend
Worthen Family Nativity Night
Again, the Cummard's hosted the evening! We ate first, hoping the kids might get some of their energy used up before starting Nativity.And boy did we eat... lobster!The kids loved the live lobsters, I personally had David's yummy chicken.We decorated the tables with our latest Last Chance find (from the Girls Weekend).
Chargers for $1.00. Don't they look so cute under the red plates??
And then it was on to Nativity...Macy was MaryKaitlyn was a shepherdBrig was a wise manand Brody was a sheep!
Here are some of the most inspiring scenes you have ever seen in a Nativity show...
(you may want to get the tissues now!)
The Heavenly Choir and Heavenly Media
Santa travels by helicopter??!!
A local business, Junky Trunk, sponsors this event each year and I never go. I decided I better go while the boys would love it! The helicopter circled around and around above us. When it landed all this dirt flew up in the air, so you couldn't even see. When we finally could see- there he was!The kids were just standing there in amazement! Even the girls- they all loved it!
I don't know how, but out of all the hundreds and hundreds of kids that came to see Santa- guess who managed to sit on his lap FIRST??Bobo- way to go!
'Til We Meet Again...
This was a rough morning saying goodbye to Hilary as she departed on her mission. I didn't take many pictures because it was so early, and because I was crying so hard most of the time I couldn't focus.
I think Grace showed pretty much how all of us were feeling,
she was the only one brave enough to let it show!
We went with quite a large group this year. Lonny and I are way in the back. The whole show was different, and we loved it! More characters, the usual beautiful music, it was a great night!
Ticket to Polar ExpressNot the "real" Polar Express, but even better was being invited to Quincy's Polar Express Birthday Party- Brody was so excited to go!
And then came Lola...
This was the kids 1st Christmas present to receive this year. She is a Chihuahua Toy. She is the newest member of our family and everyone of the kids loves her.
Even when they are asleep!
Foster Family Christmas Eve
Grandma Sue gave each of the kids 2 Webkins- they were so excited!
And, like Thanksgiving, I didn't take ANY photos of Christmas Day, they are all on video, which someday I will figure out how to add that to my blog.
