So I've been horrible with getting out my SLR and have been using my phone most of the time and I've been using Instagram a lot more as well. So I thought I'd post an update from our day to day lives via Instagram.
|Lilley was pretending to be a donut head...Silly girl!|
|We got a lot of snow this winter and I really was tired of shoveling every day!|
|Play date at the Kangaroo Zoo in Ogden. The kids LOVED it!!!|
|At school Brantley's teacher performed a wedding for Q and U! The boys dressed up as quarterbacks and the girls like queens. They had a wedding celebration all day including a wedding cake....Can I just day we LOVE his teacher?!|
|Brantley's Valentine's day gifts he gave to his class mates. They were made out of Rollo's and kisses.|
|Dr. Seuss day at school. His teacher dressed up as Thing 1 then half way through class changed to thing 2. She didn't say a single word all day and played tricks on the kids through out the day. It was hilarious!|
|Play date at Classic Skating. I roller skated for the first time in more then 15 yrs. So much fun!|

So we decided to put Brantley into snowboarding lessons this year for the first time and he did amazing!! Although I really wasn't too surprised. He really is a natural at any sport that requires balance and coordination. He was lucky enough to have his wonderful aunt Bekah take him up to snow basin and put him into private lessons. By the end of the season he was a going from his heal to toe edges, turning down the hill with only falling a couple of times and was ready for the bigger hills. He loved every min of it!

Every year after we open up presents at home we head over the the St.Jeor's to open everything up from Grandma and Grandpa and have of coarse more food!! After that this year was a little different then the norm. Normally we head straight over the my parents house for more presents but this year we went home and hung out for a bit, took naps (much needed) and then headed over to the Huggins's for more presents and then dinner. I unfortunately left my camera at the St.Jeor's and did not have it there!! I was so mad! So I guess this year we didn't get any pictures there. (I'm still mad at myself for this). Like always it was a great Christmas full of adventures, excitement and most importantly love. I love my family and love the holidays and this year was awesome!
Daddy giving the run down on what's going to happen and then saying Santa didn't come..haha!
Can you tell he's excited?!
The look on his face here is priceless!! He just saw that Santa left underwear in his stocking!!
She's a happy girl!
And this is what Brantley did for most of the day
Oh Christmas morning...It's so magical!! The kids had a blast and got everything that they wanted and more. They are so fun to watch! They are by far the best ages for Christmas. I just love how excited they are and the joy in their little eyes.
Not sure what is up with Brantley's smiles this night but they sure are cheesy! All dressed up and ready for the party! (Love it!)
All of the grand kids minus Cody on the St.Jeor side
Opening up their one and only present for the night...JAMMIES!!
Ending the night watching Christmas Vacation
So this year Christmas Eve was just like every year. We head over to the St.Jeor's for an amazing dinner, open up the kids jammies and hang out tell it's time to go home to go to bed. I just love this night. The kids are all so excited and going crazy. It is such a magical night! I just love Christmas time and everything that goes with it. Watching my two beautiful kids full of the Christmas spirit just makes it so much better and one of my favorite times of the year.
So I was lucky enough to be able to help out in Brantley's school class Christmas party this year! It really was so much fun to see him in class and to help out even if it was a little crazy! I was only able to get a couple of pictures though but they made Christmas trees made out of sugar cones, made 5 little snowmen ornaments, played games and read a Christmas story. What a fun day and great way to end their last day of school in 2012!
So Brantley finally lost is first tooth just a couple of days before Christmas!! He was so excited about this! It had been loose for 4 months and he just wouldn't let us pull it and to be honest it really wasn't ready to be pulled. But finally we were able to get that little thing out with just a little bit of a twist. I've got to admit it though I was just as excited as he was and I was the lucky one who got to pull it out. He was mostly excited about the fact that the tooth fairy was going to come that night. Although he was a little weirded out with the thought of a little fairy coming into his room at night so we got this little tooth pillow with a ribbon on it and hung it on his door so that the tooth fairy didn't have to come into his room. When he woke up is was excited that she gave him $2.00 instead of the $1 that he thought he would get (all his friends had told him that they got a $1 so we ran with it!!) since it was his first tooth and she let him keep it just this one time. What a nice tooth fairy! :-)
So this year instead of decorating a gingerbread house we found this awesome little kit and made a rice crispy treat train! It was so easy to make and to decorate and the kids really liked doing it better then the gingerbread house. Turned out so cute!!
