I can't believe that Christmas has come and gone already!! But this year was a really good year! Christmas Eve was at Becky's this year! Santa came on the Firetruck and all of the kids were so excited. Everyone sat on his lap and made a promise to their parents that they will try harder to be better next year. It was so cute. When he left it was time to sing MUST BE SANTA!! This year was fun because everyone is getting old enough to do it! After singing it FOUR times it was time to go home and get to bed! Mom and I woke up at 6:30 to open presents and then it was off to see what everyone got! Keli insisted that her kids would not wake up until eight but Mom and I thought that she was up in the night so we headed to their house early!! Good thing we did because about seven thirty came around and Keli was calling saying that her kids could not wait any longer!! We got there just in time for the fun! Morgan got everything she asked for and then some!! She was the funnest to watch open everything. She got an American Girl Doll, baby clothes, and best of all an IPOD!! Britton got GI Joes, cars, and a farm to share with Tyler. Britton was so excited about everything. His face was priceless. Tyler got cars, Horton Hears a Who, cars, a farm and did I mention CARS!! Everything he opened he would say WOW LOOK! It was so funny. He also thought that when Mommy got you this he had to give it to her! Ha ha We realized this when he would love it and then get the saddest look on his face! Then it was off to see what the other grand kids got. I think that everyone was good this year because Santa brought almost everything on their lists. My favorite part of Christmas is Breakfast with my Brothers and Sisters. I love watching to see what everyone bought for each other. This year the HOT Item was BYU and UTAH shirts. We are so divided! Its so funny. I also love to see the grand kids faces when they open what Grandma got them. The Pj's and Slippers were a big hit this year!! I think Mason was the first to put his on! Christmas is my favorite Holiday!

Today was Britton's Christmas Program at his Preschool! He had been so excited all morning because his Mom and Dad were going to see him in ACTION!! Britton practiced and practiced all month, singing Christmas songs and learning his line: "I had the Sleigh, but just one helper wouldn't do, I was looking for a team!! " We got to his school and he went right up to where he was supposed to go and sat down. Keli was so excited that he wasn't scared to do it this year because last year she had to sit on the stage with him. Britton was so excited when he saw his Dad walk in! I think from then on all he did was smile and look at Buddy!! It was so CUTE!! The program started and the funny thing is you couldn't hear any of the kids. I thought, oh great Britton isn't going to say his line loud enough, but his part came up he stood up all smiles and looked at his Dad and said his line loud so everyone can hear! He did so good!! When it was over we got to see SANTA!! Oh man, all of the kids were jumping up and down! Tyler couldn't wait to sit on Santa's lap!! Ha ha I love Christmas!! Britton is such a good boy and he did such a good job! I know that Keli and Buddy loved it and are just as proud as I am of Britton!!

Wow, It has been a while!! A lot has kept me busy the last couple of weeks! Let me tell you a little bit about it! We went to Las Vegas at the first of November! I had a BLAST!! I kinda invited myself a long with Buddy and Keli and Buddy's family, Ha Ha but they didn't seem to mind....at least I hope!! Thanks for letting me crash the party! I had a ton of fun!!

Thanksgiving was so much fun! This year was the off year with my family but because some are having babies soon, most of my family got to stay here this year! We had an amazing dinner thanks to my Mom and Sisters! Not to mention, Alison makes the best rolls ever! After dinner it was off to the bowling ally! Riley and Stephanie met us there! I think almost everyone played but it was so much fun watching the kids play! I am so glad that I have a close family! I don't know what I would do with out them! I love you guys!!

Well that is about it! Life can get kinda CRAZY but I LOVE every minute of it!!
