Christmas in a nutshell

I have tons of pictures to post so I won't bore you with too many details, but here is a little recap of our Christmas break:

I FINALLY got a camera before we left for Christmas
We went to Utah for Christmas
We took Jaxon sledding and he couldn't get enough of it and shocked us all-he was quite the dare devil, going down backwards, laying was fun.
Santa came to Grandmas house on Christmas Eve and Jaxon was in absolute shock, he didn't move or speak for a few minutes...just stared.
We had a great Christmas with all of our families, saw some movies, played games and ate lots of good food.

Sledding with Aunt Lauri, Uncle JD and Grandpa

Santa came to visit Christmas Eve

Christmas Day- Jaxon was in heaven with cars, airplanes, and trains. Crew just wanted to eat all the food from everyones stocking, and Mike got a snuggie...he was thrilled.

Today was not my day

I had a great meal planned for today. Some cranberry glazed pork chops, cheesy potatoes, and fresh green beans. To my disappointment, the pork got overcooked and turned out dry and the potatoes got undercooked and were a little crisp. My kids ended up eating dino nuggets cause the meat was so tough. But guess what? They still think I'm pretty cool, in fact they probably enjoyed the dino nuggets more than if the meal had turned out. Cranberry glazed pork...not my thing. But I can make some pretty sweet Dino Nuggets!

Thought I would share

Just found a new favorite design site. It may be old news to some people, but I'm loving it. Its called the The Inspired Room. I put a link on the right side of my blog, so check it out if thats your kind of thing. I love finding new sites like this that can get the creativity flowing again so I thought some of you would appreciate it. I liked this post

Halloween and stuff

I am horrible at keeping this current. Most people have probably given up on my blog, except grandparents. :) But here are some pictures of Halloween and a few random ones of the boys hanging out in their tent watching a movie and eating snacks-there will probably be a lot of that this winter. Jaxon was Buzz Lightyear for Halloween and the costume was hilarious, he was in love with it. Crew was a cute little tiger, although he was not too fond of wearing it.

Catching Up

I've been on a bit of a blogging break, so I'm back to catch you all up on what we've been up to these past weeks. We left a few weeks ago to Oregon and Washington to visit Mike's parents and my parents. We first went to Oregon and we all ended up getting sick. Both boys had ear infections and fevers and I ended up with a sinus infection. Mike's parents were such troopers to put up with us all being sick! We still had a good time and managed to do a lot of fun things. We went to a little theme park called Enchanted Forest that the kids loved and Jaxon went fishing with Mike and his dad. And I was able to hit up the Nordstrom sale :) We then went to Washington to visit my parents. Our trip was cut short because my cute little Grandpa in Utah passed away and we flew out for the funeral. But we were able to enjoy some fun stuff in Seattlein the time we were there. We went boating...both the boys got on the tube, we went to another theme/water park, the beach and Mike and I were able to go downtown Seattle all day BY OURSELVES! I will stop rambling since probably no one is reading anymore and just post picures.

Riding the train

Jaxon was a little skeptical of this guy and didn't take his eyes off him.

Learning to fish...

Jaxon being his independent self and doing it himself

But not too be trusted for too long...

I just love this picture

Mike and I were able to spend a much needed day away downtown Seattle. We had so much fun shopping, walking around and enjoying the surroundings. We found this little hole in the wall place at Pikes Market to eat lunch that was known for their Rueben sandwiches-which I love, and especially known for their meatloaf sandwich that Mike braved and loved.

Also check out these amazing flowers we brought home to my mom from Pikes. Pikes has the most Gorgeous bouquets of flowers and guess how much?? $5!!!! If I lived there I would have these on my table pretty much at all times.

I love this picture of Jaxon at the airport. He could not wait to go on the airplane..waiting in line was pure torture for him. After our two hour plane ride he turned and said to me.."How about again mom?" He couldnt get enough

I know this post is getting really long but I had to post this last picture of my grandpa. He died July 25, 2009 and was 96 years old. It is so crazy to think how one person can affect so many lives. He has 8 kids, 28 grandkids, 79 great-grandkids and 7 great, great grandkids and will be greatly missed.
