Funny kids

I have to post these before I forget them.

  • The other day Topher was bugging Maura when she was trying to play and she came up to me with a concerned look on her face and declared that she was allergic to Topher and that he needed to get away.
  • TJ has been in Syracuse for the last couple of weeks doing clinicals. Maura has a hard time remembering the name Syracuse so she calls it Security. She says things like "When is dad coming home from Security?"

  • The other day I sent Timmy out in the snow to get the mail out of the mailbox. I was watching him through the window. As soon as he got to the mailbox he spotted an icicle hanging from it. He broke it off, licked it once and then decided to dip it in the snow (I know...ewww!). He licked the snow off and continued to dip it a couple more times in the snow. On the last lick he stopped, got a disgusted look on his face and spit the snow out. TJ and I were dying laughing, when he got in, we asked him why he spit it out and he said it was too salty! Oh the things kids do...

Christmas in Globe

I got the pics out of order, but we spent Christmas with TJ's family. We had fun playing Wii, eating, visiting the firehouse and doing all of our Christmas traditions.
The little boys trying out their Hulk hands.

Looking at what Santa brought.

Ready to do the ornament exchange.

All the kids in their matching jammies.

Visiting the firehouse with the kids. They loved the big trucks.

Tyring to get a descent picture of the kids in their Sunday didn't happen.

Christmas Time in Snowflake

After staying in Gilbert and seeing Grandma we headed to Snowflake. The kids had tons of fun following grandpa around and checking off the chores on his list. We also went to a bid Webb family party where they had a family band. We didn't have instruments for the kids so my dad made them instruments out of tin cans, cups of beans and wood sticks. They played their instruments like they had one of the real ones my cousins were playing. It was adorable to see. We had a good time visiting and spending time there.

Topher was tired out from all of the festivities.

Over the River and Through the Woods...

Just the girls went to my Grandma's house while we were in AZ. We had such a good time. While we were there I had to stop by and see the first house TJ and I lived in. It looked just as rough as it was when we lived in it.

We visited the Rival Rock at EAC. My dad's name is on it.

Me, Lyss, and Cass in front of the Gila Valley Temple

So pretty!

Christmas Time in the Valley

We spent the first part of our trip in Gilbert with Drew and Cassie. We had tons of fun. We went to see temple lights, hit Dairy Queen, ate pizza with all my brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews (except for Joele, Jason, and Lyssa), watched Avatar, and ran tons of Christmas errands. It was fun to visit and catch up.
Uncle Kam and Bud with some of the littel boys.

Maura and Jada...always wanting to be twins.
