About Time

I am so sorry that I have not posted anything forever! I have been so busy with school, work and the kids that I honestly have not had a spare minute! I am just going to make this short and sweet and hopefully over the next few weeks I will have more time to take some good pictures.
We enjoyed putting the tree up even though it is only half decorated. I was hoping this would keep Maggie from getting the ornaments all pulled down. However, I was taking a shower the other day and I heard some clanking noises. So I opened the curtain and underneath the door Maggie had placed three ornaments! Still cute! Eli also keeps asking if he can open up his presents now since he will not be with us for Christmas. I told him no because Santa hadn't delivered them yet. I don't think he believed me though. Kyler also is getting very excited. He asks everyday if Christmas is tomorrow. When I tell him it is not for a few more weeks, he says, "No, your wrong because the snow is here!"

Kyler says and does the funniest things! I wish I would write them all down in a book because I forget them. He always likes to surprise me. He was taking a bath the other day and yelled at me to come in there because he had a surprise! I went in and he said, Look mom, I cleaned your tub for you! He had gotten my new can of shaving gel and sprayed it all out! I do have to admit, it looked and smelled great!

We went to Logan a few weeks ago for a family Christmas party. It was great to see my grandpa and all of our family. The kids really enjoyed it as well. I can't believe how nice it was down there. I forget what it feels like not to live in a place that is always blowing!

Here are just a few random pictures. Like I said I hope to get more up after the holidays instead of in a month!
