My last post of the Year

I can't believe there is only hours left in the year. I'm glad to hear that some have had a good year, but I'll be honest I'm still getting use to this move and I'm afraid it will for awhile. I keep telling myself that we both prayed about it and that we both felt like it was the right thing. I am thankful though that Branon is still working and hasn't lost his job in which we thought might happen back in August. I am hopeful for 2011.

December went by fast which I'm glad because I'm not huge into the holidays. Wish I was like my mom she always made everything so much fun but I'm so much more like my dad. I feel sorry for my kids but I know they will still survive. Here are some pictures of what we did. For Christmas eve we had Branon's brother Haldon and his family over. Our kids get along so well and had fun playing.

Jenna got into a lot of trouble this month. Here is a picture of her getting into my makeup but it could have been so much worse. About a month ago or so she got into my neighbors make up and totally destroyed it. Wish I had a picture of that one. The other day she got into the garbage that had the fireplace ashes and put them all over in the basement.

I went down to Tuacan in St. George with my friend Brandy and her kids. We were going to go see the nativity but they canceled due to the rain. However they still had Santa Clause which was one of the best I have ever seen. Jonas was a little confused as you can see in his picture because he said it wasn't the real Santa Clause. He told me "Mom, I've seen the real Santa clause in Alaska at the North Pole and that is not him." I think he was confused because this Santa could pull off being the real Santa. This year all my kids believe and I'm hoping that will be the same for next year but Jonas is a very smart kid and might figure that out next year, and it doesn't help if his friends know. I believe my sister told me around Jonas's age.

This is how good Santa was because he even got Jenna to sit on his lap without screaming.

Well off to my friends house to party and hope that 2011 is a good year!

Oh Jonas said something really funny a couple days after Christmas that I wanted to share. As you can see is two front teeth are missing and so I kept singing that song to him. He said, "I thought I was going to get my two front teeth for Christmas." He said it so seriously I want to die laughing!

I'm headed for some major drama

I have to admit when I was pregnant with Jonas I wanted him to be a girl really bad. After we found out that he was a boy a decided I could live with that and was excited when I looked at all the plus's of having a boy. No having to do hair, No cute cloths(I love t-shirts and jeans, don't have to worry about looking cute), and no drama. After 7 years I realize boys do have drama but after having two girls it's a little different. This morning I was dropping off Bella and Jonas at school, and Bella had one of her moments where she cries for no reason at all. On our way to school she found some sunglasses and put them on, mind you it was raining so she didn't need them. I should have said something but I let her keep them on and figured she would take them off when she went into class. Well right before she was about to walk into the school she runs back to the car to give me the sunglasses and starts crying. I asked her why she was crying and she said "I don't know." I told her to calm down and there is no reason to cry. Bella- "I can't stop crying" I look at her as calm as I can without laughing or yelling told her that I'm not getting out of the car and that she was holding up all the cars, and lucky she was able to pull herself together. Bella does a lot of crying and sometimes for no reason at all, and Jenna does a lot more screaming. I don't know how people do it with a family full of girls! I have been horrible at taking pictures lately but here is one of a few I have of her crying.

I should say I would never ever trade my girls. Even though they may cry and scream they tell me all the time how much they love me and gives the best hugs. It makes it all worth dealing with all the drama. I guess I should be able to handle it since they do learn from their mother!
