Mr and Mrs. Claus


"Hmmm....I want......Legos!"
"I want my two front teeth!" (While laughing hysterically!)
"I want a Lalaloopsy, Playdough and a doll walk!"
Then Santa surprised her with some playdough!

A big shout out to Julie Williams Photography for having this event. All donations were given to the Christmas Box House. Thank you as well to Mr and Mrs Claus. Aren't they just perfect?

My two front teeth!

Kali lost her first front tooth due to being bumped by an elbow at school. She lost her second by tripping over the Christmas Blowup outside and smacking her face on the corner of the sidewalk. Poor poor little thing!
Then to make matters worse....I thought it was looking pretty bad the next day, so I swung her into the doctors office and it was infected. Poor Poor Poor baby!

2010 Christmas Progression at Dance

Kaisey was super excited. However I was really afraid that she wasn't going to even try. She is sometimes a little naughty at dance class and doesn't participate.
Uh.....turn around Kaisey!
Then there was Kali. She did a GREAT job! I cannot wait to see her perform at her first competition.
Abbi's turn. She had her cheer and competition class recitals. She has improved SO much already this year. She now has her back walk-over, her round-off back-handspring, and her standing back hand-spring. I'm so proud of her!
Here's Kaisey performing.

Happy 12th

Happy 12th birthday to my Abbi. She was turning 12 on 12/12. I thought that was pretty cool...so I decided to throw her a surprise party!

I started off by taking her to the mall to buy her some new clothes. We came home to this....

She was pretty darn excited AND surprised!

♪ Once there was a snowman ♫

Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman. We need sticks for arms!"
Mom "First I have to clean the house."
Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman."
Mom "Yes. But now I have to clean the bathtub and give you a bath."
Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman."
Mom "Yes, but now I gotta shower."
Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman."
Mom "We have to go run errands first."
Kaisey "I want Wendy's and then I wanna build a snowman."
Mom "Ok we'll get Wendy's then you have to nap and then we can build a snowman."

.......and we FINALLY built the snowman but first she had to wear his outfit.

She's one persistant little thing!

Ragnar Relay Vegas

My very first relay and it was SUCH a blast. I'm hooked. This is my team. I was in van 1 and I happened to be runner 1. I had legs 1, 13 and 25. We started this journey in the Valley Of Fire and finished up in Vegas. 195 miles in 2 days. For those of you who think that Vegas is flat? Well we didn't run in THOSE places.
And we're off!
That blue speck? Ya. That's me.
Catchin' a rest whenever, where ever I could.
Just getting ready to start my 2nd leg. In the dark. By myself. On a trail. All I could think of was bobcat. I thought I was gonna get eaten. Especially when my headlight went out.
This was on my final leg. My last leg was an absolute killer. It ended up being practically straight up hill for 3 1/2 miles.
2 of my besties! Patrice I've known since Kindergarten, and Cindy I've met in High School.

I can't wait to do it again. April. California. Here I come.

Oh 'Shoot'ers

Marshmallow Shooters that is......

Let me just start by apologizing to all the people in my neighborhood for all the 'marshmallow attacks', and for turning the park into a 'marshmallow zone' (I couldn't very well have them all over my yard right??) Having overheard a couple of the kids tell Kaleb that his party was the COOLEST EVER was definately worth it!

Consists of:
1 7" PVC Pipe (schedule 40)
2 5" PVC
4 3" PVC
2 Elbows
2 T's
2 Stoppers
Paint of Choice

We watched this video on youtube.com
This looks a tad bit like payback doesn't it???

Happy Birthday lil buddy!
