Day 199

December 21st, 2013

Tonight we surprised the children and took them to a Christmas party.  There was food, games, Santa and of course gifts.  The children LOVED their gifts!  It was fun!

Day 198

December 20th, 2013

Jennifer and David came back from New Mexico.  Time to decorate the Christmas tree, finally. 

Day 197

December 19th, 2013

Sweet little Juder Buggy finally lost his first, AND second teeth tonight!  He hit his mouth on the floor, knocked the loose one out and apparently knocked out that extra tooth he had growing out of his gums.  I talked to a dentist about it and he said that once in a while people grow extra teeth like that.  Glad it came out on it's own tonight.  I sure hope his new teeth grow in straight.

Tonight we went to the ward Christmas party.  Jolie, Jaren, Jude and Jadon visited with Santa.

Grandma is back in town and the children flock around, the cat Obie too.  She hands out yummy treats. 

Day 194

Our stake puts on a beautiful Festival of Nativities each Christmas season.  Picture #1 is a wall of pictures of Jesus I'd LOVE to have in my home, picture #2 is Jolie with cousin Jacob aka Joseph and Mary, picture #3 is Jude in the children's room.

Jenea actually wanted me to take a picture of her, which is unusual because she usually hides from my camera. 

Day 187

December 9th, 2013

I did not take a picture today so I posted this from our Thanksgiving weekend trip to the beach.  I think JJ looks like a little gumdrop in this outfit.  So sweet!  Jaren actually had a modeling fitting today at Dennis Uniforms.  He wasn't just the right size.

I love how JJ can sleep nearly everywhere and through anything.
