Our Family

Our family had a fun Christmas in the Valley. Santa found our house the Wed night before Christmas and we had lots of fun opening presents Thurs morning. It was fun with 2 boys excited to open presents. We decided to go to the Valley Thursday morning instead of Friday. I knew we were in trouble and were in for some fun when Jacob's eyes were goopy and red by the time we got there- pink eye. Thankfully we called our doctor and he called in drops for us. We have learned with Jacob when it rains, it pours! That night started a long rest of our trip. Jacob was grumpy, not eating, not sleeping and making it a little hard to really enjoy Christmas with both families. By Sunday, I knew we needed to take him to Urgent Care. Jacob ended up with a bad ear infection (first one for our family), a bad sore throat (no strep), and a 103.6 temperature. It took several days but we finally got our happy Jacob back. We got home Tuesday from the Valley and that night my eyes started to get goopy and I was thankful we had the drops. Jacob had already given me his bad sore throat which I thanked him for. We all are battling sickness. I now have a bad cough and Hannah got up yesterday with a little goopy eye. Ryan is the only one that hasn't gotten pink eye. We got lots of snow last week but it was way too cold to even go play in it. One morning last week we got up and it was -21 degrees. Way to cold to be outside! We satyed home and enjoyed time with daddy. Ryan had to go back to work today:( We love having daddy home to play with! I can't believe it is already 2011. This last year went way too fast! We hope you have an amazing 2011 filled with lots of love, joy, and success!!

Dallin LOVED opening presents. He could have opened them all day!

All the fun Santa left for Dallin- each boy got Chuck the Talking Truck. He even moves on his own. Dallin also got Noah's Ark. He loves all the animals and plays with it all the time. Each boy also got a book, dvd, a thomas the train, and treats.

All of Jacob's fun that Santa left!

Jacob's turn to open a present. You can tell his eye is a little red but he had no goop till we got to the valley that afternoon.

Jacob loving the treats!!

Dallin playing with his Noah's Ark!

Hannah being a good girl enjoying the day! She's getting so big- 3 and a half months already!!

This was one of my favorite presents we gave our boys- a huge dog! Ryan wasn't as excited but as you can see Dallin's has to sleep with him but only for his nap. At bedtime his dog sleeps right next to him on the floor. The boys love them- thanks Nana for finding them!

Dallin picked these shirts out for everyone. See what happens when you let boys go shopping!! It was so cute! When they got home Dallin took Hannah's onesie up to her and kept showing it to her.
