What We Have Been Up To...

We have been staying busy lately. Here are a few things we have been up to...

* We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Ryan's parents home. I think I heard 49 adults and many, many cute kiddos. I don't remember how many turkeys we had but several. It was a nice day spending time with loved ones.

* Jacob amazed me at Thanksgiving that he could stack pop cans. He got 4 or 5 high. I was impressed. He did that so many times- the things that entertain them.

* We had some sick kiddos which is never fun! Dallin threw up in the middle of one night and spent the next couple of days with, well, I'm sure you don't want the details. It was his stomach. I think we all got a little touch of what Dallin had. Hannah got another cold but just a little one this time.

*Dallin and Jacob have learned that it is fun to play together. My favorite is when Dallin hides and sits in a spot and yells for Jacob to find him. Jacob runs over laughing and both boys think it is soooo funny. Dallin always is in the same spot. It's so nice when they play nicely together!!!

* We put up Christmas decorations 2 weeks before Thanksgiving- is that against the rules??

* Dallin worked so hard on putting all of magnets on our fridge. He was so proud of himself when he was done. He won't let me take any off!

* Ryan has worked, worked, and worked some more! One more week of 6 days a week 12 hour days! 7 days left- let the countdown begin!

* Jacob got his 2 top molars and is now working on his 2 bottom molars- lucky Ryan he has missed that fun!!

* Dallin still loves preschool!! He wishes it was everyday. He made this bead candy cane and held onto it for several days. He even fell alseep holding it!

* On Dec. 7 Ryan's Grandpa passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family members. His funeral was Dec. 11. We love you Grandpa Great!! We took Ryan's cousin down to the valley. I sat in the backseat with the boys. Dallin held my hand most of the way down. He loves to hold my hand.

* On Dec 11 I was very blessed to be able to be in the Mesa Temple as Cindi, Rob, and their family were sealed for time and all eternity in the temple. We are so proud of your family and love you guys so much!! It was a circle of life day for me- funeral in the morning and sealing in the afternoon.
