Little of this...Little of that...

Is it wrong that it's killing me that Kennedy doesn't have matching jammies?
Guess who lost her two front teeth...two days before Christmas! Little Miss Reagan pulled one out accidently! How cool is that?! She was super excited!
Raise your hand if you like Candy Canes...

Little candy cane to keep the Big Aesil away...(ask Dan the story sometime... CREEPY)
We went tubing on the pond! Freezing, but super fun! Noah was catapulted numerous times and LOVED it!

Cute little monkey!

Spreading Christmas Cheer!

Man I love these kiddos! We am very grateful to have them in our lives! Dan and I (still after 15 years) look around and say,
"Holy Cow...we are married...and have kids!"

Kennedy is 14 and REALLY good at it! She is hilarious and extremely helpful. I wouldn't have made it through this year without her help! She is still playing the Cello and the piano. She plays beautifully! Her favorite song on the Cello: Jaws! Her favorite pass-time: reading and pushing our buttons! We have a teenager folks!

Noah is 10! This kid is witty to boot and makes us laugh all the time! He is BFF with Reagan at the moment. She knows he will give her what she wants - and he is loving every minute of it! He plays the piano as well and is surprised that he really likes it! His favorite book series: The Lightning Thief. His favorite pass-time: sigh...the Wii! Love this kid!

Rylee is 7 going on 16! I am scared! This one keeps us on our toes! She is a dancer and a singer and plays the piano too! She is a firecracker and WE L O V E her! She makes everyone laugh and smile! We love to listen to her stories (true or not) because they are always interesting. They usually are about her being chased by some boy that can't catch her. Sigh...we are toast! She loves her brother Luke...she tells people they are twins. We find them matching clothes often...I love it!

Luke is 5 and a cool little dude! He sports a faux hawk most days (dino man)! He is in Kindergarten and loves reading his books to Reagan. He always has a "Great Idea" and they usually consist of food options. He is my little buddy in the morning after the kids leave for school and Rea is still sleeping. He made me waffles for me today! He is really excited for Christmas - sure hope Santa brings him what he wants!!

Reagan is 15 months and chubby and fun and adorable and sneaky and silly and we ALL love her! She spices up our family and we find ourselves sitting in a circle watching her do things. She is getting into everything and is taking after her brother Noah is the eating department! Holy Cow she can eat! She signs "milk" "more" and "thank you"! Oh she is adorable! We can't wait until Christmas to see her tear into the paper!

Dan and I are up to no good as usual. Dan has started a new company, but is able to work from home and we love that! We are just loving life and enjoying our kiddos! We are grateful for this time of year that reminds of our Savior Jesus Christ and his example. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a FAB-ulous New Year!

Meet the Natives!

So Dan and I have found the most interesting show on the travel channel. I can't even explain why...but I have cried and laughed on multiple episodes now. They look at the way we live and are sad that we are missing the point. Life should be simple and we are making it very difficult for ourselves. I have to agree. What they see of our life is very enlightening! They are amazing people and I just had to share. So record the series and watch it sometime! CRAZY AWESOME!

Favorite Scenes in a few episodes:
When they went to a Petsmart and laughed at the clothes they have for dogs.
Riding on a Rollercoaster.
Talking to a homeless man in New York.
(they are amazed that with so many buildings - people are still homeless)
Playing in the snow for the first time!

Christmas Piano Recital!

The kids had their piano recital this week and did FABULOUS! We have all really enjoyed their lessons and our teacher Jaime is the BEST! They each played two songs, one being a Christmas song and it was just so much fun! Great Job Kiddos!
