Animals on Parade

As Jeremy and I went to bed the other night we found this on our headboard. Our cute Ty had played with his beloved animals until he fell asleep. I had to take a picture because I thought it was so cute. We find things like this regularly in our room. He loves animals of all shapes and sizes. They get much love around out house.

Ugly Sweaters!

For Jeremy's Company party this year we had an ugly sweater contest. The above sweaters are mine and Jeremy's. We had so much fun picking them out. The below sweaters and the ones be picked out and decorated a bit for our friends.

Below is our friend, Stephanie, posing in her finished sweater. Isn't it lovely?

She was such a great sport. This is a blimp on her bum. They added pom poms for her sleeves. And receiver gloves on her cute pregnant belly!

Way to bring home the gold for us Steph!! She took first place in the ugly sweater contest! Below in the crowning. We had a great time making up her sweater!!

Christmas 2011!!

We had a FABULOUS Christmas this year! Our kids loved it! As did Jeremy and I! I think the kids got everything they wanted.

Travis made this year especially fun. He spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with his biological Mom. He came home earlier then normal because he said it didn't feel like Christmas without US. He was so excited to be home with his family! He really enjoyed all of his gifts and could not thank us enough. He claims it was the best Christmas ever! I love that he loves to be with the 4 of us so much!! He is a great kid.

Christmas Programs

We celebrated the Christmas season with a few programs! Above is Travis in his Christmas Choir program. It's fun to watch him try different things this year. Below is Travis in a play at the Dicken's Festival. He was in both, Oliver and A Christmas Carol. We had a great time watching him in his plays! And he did a great job!
And this is McKinley, along with all of my other Primary kids, in our ward Christmas program. They sang a few songs a did great! Aren't they cute?!

Thanksgiving 2011

I decided since I haven't blogged in forever I would do a quick catch up. For Thanksgiving we went to Delta to celebrate with the Kirkland family! We always have so much fun! This was the little kids sitting on Santa's lap for the first time this year! Ty was not happy about it. Kinley did awesome!!
The day after Thanksgiving we went to Temple Square to see all the lights. It was a fun, crazy adventure. There were thousands of people there that day. We took our first ride on the trax train. It was a lot of fun! This is our cute little family in from the of Salt Lake Temple!
This is not a great pic but it's us watching the nativity seen. My Nephew, Brek, had never been there before. He had a ton of questions and it was awesome to watch Jeremy and Travis experience missionary moments with the family as they answered his questions. We had a special trip. I'm glad we got to go this year!
