Let the Holidays Begin

The kids have been pretty upset that we didn't have exterior Christmas lights and I had been trying to remind them that our Dad has been working 90 hours a week and barely has time for sleep. My brother-in-law Chad Waldron had been offering to help us, but one year without lights was not gonna kill us and it wasn't his responsibility. Sunday night Rob was at work and I was at a church meeting leaving the kids in Kelsie's care, we both happened to pull up at the same time and were surprised to find xmas lights on the house!! At first I figured it was Chad but when the kids came running out of the house beyond excited to tell how they single handedly put lights on the house, We got stories about how Zach was climbing trees and Kelsie getting down ladders while Mason made them hot coco, Rob and I wanted to die!!! We could only picture how easily there could have broken their neck but they were sooooo excited about what they had done!!!! The gig was up in the morning when Mason could not keep it a secret any longer, he spilled the beans. Our friends the Howel's happened to be driving by looking at everyones lights with their kids and saw Santa's helpers out in front of our house :) The kids were well on their way to getting up lights but I am sure there were no broken necks thanks to Reese!! I am proud of my kids for their efforts and grateful to the Howell's for keeping CPS off my back

Way out in the middle of no where there is a "North Pole" that you can put your letters to Santa in , I am a crappy mom and I forgot to bring paper and crayons so we improvised and had the kids yell there wish list into the mailbox, lets hope it works :)
Robert had to work thanksgiving and everyday after that but he managed to sneak out a little bit early and join us at the dunes for a couple of hours of fun and what would be a day at the dunes be without using your snowboard to ride down the sand!!!

Zachary "Kit Carson"

Lets just say Zach has not exactly received good grades this year, so when he need to deliver an oral report for social studies, it was very important that we did well. He drew the Name Christopher Huston Carson. He had to do his report on him and I figured what teacher could resist a kid that went above and beyond and gave his speech in the 1st person while dressed up? We got an A, and I say we because I did most of it. Reports like this/ science fair projects are for the birds!!!!!!!


Best Girls Night Out ever!!!! Who doesn't love a good book, so does it get any better than watching that book come to life with 96 of your favorite friends! As far as I am concerned UFC fights do not have anything on renting a theater for a midnight showing of New Moon!!! Boys don't be jealous

City Center

This is the reason why I never see my Husband!!! I will be honest it is pretty awesome to see what rich people are able to come up with but not so awesome the hours they will expect you to work in order to make it happen. We are really anxious to have our Dad back!!!
