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!
