Santa 2009

Kaisey was VERY afraid of Santa at first, and she warmed up and even gave Santa a hug and a kiss.
Abbi says to me, "Mom, I don't want to hurt your feelings but I don't believe in Santa Clause. I also don't believe in the Easter Bunny OR the Tooth Fairy....and by the way, you owe me a dollar for the last tooth you forgot."

Busy December

Happy 11th birthday to my Abbi! I cannot believe that she's growing so fast! 11 years ago on her due date, I told her daddy Brad that we had 5 minutes to make it to the hospital before another contraction. AND....he had locked the keys in the car while it was running. But we made it and 16 1/2 hours later, Abbigale was born. Abbi is such a witty, loving, and VERY smart girl.

We gave her a CHEF party. My mother made the aprons and we put the girls names on the hats. I attempted to teach the girls how to make homemade lemonade, rootbeer, fruit pizza's, and mini pizza's. We also had a chocolate fountain.

The next morning was our ward christmas brunch. There were some fun activities for the kids to do including a pinata. Kaisey wanted her turn....until it was her turn.

The dance studio had it's christmas recital as well.

Stranger anxiety? Or should I say Santa anxiety?
Kaleb built his very own snowman all by himself! The snowman also has on a BYU beenie.

She's FINALLY getting some hair!
What an adventure we always have with this little girl. Each christmas we let the kids pick out a new ornament to put on the tree. I think that Kaisey has broken almost every one within her reach AND we've only had our tree up for 6 days.

So I'm officially a blogging slacker. Forgive me father for I have sinned. I've become slightly addicted to a facebook game. Anywho.....

We have been really busy with a sick little girl. We ended up taking our very cranky Kaisey in to the ER 3 nights in a row. First one was to do a catscan to be sure that she wasn't having an apendicits. Next night I spent 4 1/2 hours getting all sorts of things checked. Still nothing. 3rd night Trent took her up to PCMC and after doing a few more tests, they looked at the scans that hospital number 2 did and said she was "basically full of poop." For the LOVE.... But she's once again back to my happy little girl! It took several days with medicines to finally make her regular.

Next we've been busy with another book report project. This is Abbi's Titanic.

Abbi has also been really busy learning her solo for dance competition, and learning the violin, as well as regular dance classes, and homework.

Grandma came out and made Gingerbread houses with the kids.
Baylee taking a sneaky bite. I caught her!Kaisey has found a new love for Dora the Explorer and Go Diego Go! We pulled out some of Kali's old toys. Kaisey set up the table with chairs around it and then would say, "Sit down" AND then she'd actually try to sit in the chair.

Kaisey has also been a very busy girl. Abbi was only sort of in trouble for leaving her pencil down....because we were getting ready to repaint her room for her birthday.

We got out the blow-ups decorations tonight and as Kali was measuring her height to Rudolf's she says, "Mom me and Rudolf must be the same age!"
