Merry Christmas

It's hard to believe that Christmas has already come and gone. All way too fast I might add. I love my family. I could just squeeze my kids. I love them that much. They are so much fun. What a delightful way to wake up Christmas morning. I just had a thought. The word "mas" means "more" in Spanish. What a neat way to define Christmas: "more Christ."

 I love Jacob's expressiveness. I love his eagerness. Ben was just as eager; it just didn't cross over into the pictures. No pics of Marty. He was the cameraman. Notice how he even got shots of Sarah in the background?

Ben's Preschool Christmas Program

Is Ben cute? Yes. Is he a pill when he's supposed to be cute and perform well at his preschool Christmas program? Yes. Do I love him anyway? You betcha!

Christmas Angels

I know two of the cutest Christmas Angels! We took the kids to the Ogden Christmas Village for family night. This was the third year we weathered the cold temps to let the kids run around, enjoying the sights. After chasing Ben around, we got the kiddos back into the warm car and went to Sandy's for some hot chocolate and hot fudge cake. What can I say? I am a sucker for my kids and proud of it!


We're Not In Kansas Anymore...

I thought I left the hurricane force winds behind when I moved from North Carolina. But no. I guess they followed me here. We had quite a few shingles get blown off the east side of our house. We also lost some soffits, fascia, and a tree. Our neighbor's trampoline blew through the fence. It was quite sad. It's crazy that the equivalent to category 2 hurricane force winds could exist here. It was like living through hurricane Hugo again. CRAZY!
