Merry Christmas!


We had a really nice Christmas with our family and the kids. Everyone had gone to Frank and Donna's for Christmas Eve except for Cayla, Miyah and I, the girls were sick so I stayed home and made cookies for Santa and we watched a movie. It was actually very relaxing just spending time with the girls (when they weren't sleeping or crying because their mouths hurt!!!). The kids opening their pj's, changed clothes and got comfy on the couch to listen to "The Night Before Christmas", this year Cayla read it and she had been practicing for 2 weeks. She did a beautiful job and her sister were right there in case she needed help. Miyah was sleeping and we just could not get her up to open her jammies, once she did wake up she REFUSED to put them on and stayed in her pants. LOVELY...that is good parenting skills. Ryan also refused to sit with the girls and listen to the story.

Christmas day was so nice and as usual we stayed home, played games, read books, watched movies, napped and ate. I hope that everyone had a blessed day and enjoyed being with family and friends.

6 weeks already?????

I cannot believe that 6 weeks have already gone by and it is time for Mackenzie to have her cast taken off. On the 22nd, Kenzie went back to Dr. Redal and he removed her cast. Kenzie knew that there was the possibility that she would need to have her arm recasted but everything worked out in her favor. She is so happy to have it off, but really surprised how weak her arm is. I think that the weirdest thing is the arm that was casted now has black hair growing on it. I told her that is just proof that she is a Mexican. Now she is working on building up the strength back, when they took off the cast her wrist bent all the way down and her hand touch her arm...it was a little gross. Kenzie was a trooper, never complained about the cast expect right before they replaced the first one because her hand hurt.

Of course I had to take my camera to end this series of photos and wouldn't you know that my batteries died!!! I still was able to take some great pictures.

I love you Kenzie Annie Anne!!!!!!!


Family Fun!


On Saturday the 20th we celebrated Christmas early with Corey's family since Hiedi, Matt and Carter were in town. I think that this is our fourth White Elephant exchange and just as usual everyone had a very fun time. This year it really shows a passage of time for us because Meaghan left early to go to a play that her friend was performing in. She stayed long enough for pictures and then Corey took her to watch her friend Olga, so strange it has always been the other kids that have plans. All the kids are getting so big and we are getting older. HEHEHEHEHE!!!! This year it seemed really strange not to have Helen there in the physical sense, but I know that she was there laughing with us. Well family I had a great time and we are looking forward to next year.
