Christmas Time

On Christmas Eve we went to Tom & Shirleys and guess who came to visit?! Kaleb did much better with Santa this year, in fact no tears from either one of them :)

Christmas morning went in a flash! Favorite presents this year:
Kaleb - Nerf Gun
Tenley - baby doll

The day after Christmas we took the kids to see the Temple lights.  I think we'll go after Christmas every year from now on, the normal crowd just wasn't there.  It was much more relaxed and easy going :)  
We had a wonderful holiday season this year, can't wait for the next one!

AZ Wing Commemorative Air Force Museum

What better way to spend Christmas Eve for a little boy obsessed with planes!! We took the kids out to Mesa to check out the AZ wing commemorative Air Force museum (say that 10 times fast)  The admission was pretty dang cheap and Kaleb definitely had a great time!  They had small model planes everywhere, and then we got to just walk around the big hangars and check out all the life size planes :)  I think his favorite part was the little yellow plane wagon that he got to sit in!

We also got to go in the plane that was outside...I really don't remember what it was called (jared would be ashamed)  It's an old bomber of some sort and it was pretty neat.  Everything was really cramped, I cannot even imagine flying in the air in that thing!

a cabin trip like any other...NOT!

We decided to take another one of our spontaneous, "hey lets go to the cabin" kind of trips.  Plus we really want to go play in the snow!  Well this trip turned into quite the adventure, we got snowed in, couldn't go anywhere til we begged a neighbor with a plow to come clear our driveway and then dig out our van (the silver bullet did great on it's 1st cabin trip, haha)

Luckily there are some random snow clothes up at the cabin because we didn't have crap for snow clothes for the kids!  Took them sledding a few times, they loved it!  As you can see Tenley literally just layed in the sled and didn't move at all the whole time, it was pretty funny to see her just lay there and look around!

Kaleb getting comfy while watching a movie :)

 So continuing with our adventure....not only did we get completely snowed in and have to stay an extra day but the power went off.  It's happened a couple times going up to the cabin but only for a short time, this time it was ALL night!  We had to cook dinner on the fire and use candles and flashlights to go to bed.  It was kind of fun and annoying all at the same time :) Definitely a trip for the books, love that place!!!

my little brother is married?!

 This has to be one of the strangest moments of my life....but in a really good way!  He'll always be MY little brother, no one else's; so when he got hitched...yah, a little weird seeing him all grown up and Man-ish.  I do have to say he kicked butt at choosing a wife, we love Erin!! She is awesome, adorable, tons of fun, and fits right in with my nut ball familia! I don't have pics of the reception, but it looked amazing!  Yes, I am bragging, because me and my sisters, and my mom  planned and did most everything! it was a DIY awesomeness! Congrats Marbles, and good luck! We love you!
My kiddos were dancing crazies! and kaleb was obsessed with stealing silverware off of the tables :) he pretty much had a handful of forks/spoons in his hands the whole night!

Like I said, nutters!
