It isn't about waiting out the storm it's learning to dance in the rain!

Winding Down

I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas and eventually forgive me for my lack of Christmas updates but I am planning on sending something out the first of the year. We had a wonderful Christmas -spending time with family and friends.
Lexi and Jordan are still growing like weeds - I love these pics of them...

We had FHE at the zoo, the lights were beautiful and Jordan thought it was great.

Both Jordan and Alexis got to see Santa this year. Although in two different places. Here is Lex sitting with Santa and Mrs. Clause at the Primary Activity...

My sisters Chrissy and Karen were able to meet me at Festival of the Trees (we are trying to turn it into a tradition and trying to get our mom and other sis to it). We took this picture and had finally had a picture of all the grandkids and now we are already behind, Chrissy had her little girl on Dec 14th. We had fun and enjoyed being together although, next year we might have to leave the kids behind.

At the close of this year I am so thankful for all that I have, my family, my house (even if it is still under construction), my job - I work for/with great people, and especially my Savior and Redeemer who continues to bless me and love me. I am also grateful for all my friends who support me and continue to help me want to be better.

**G'ma Lisa, Here is your lil lunch break treat, these next pictures are for you. Notice Lexs' hat and Jordans' slippers(they are mine and he insisted he wear them). I hope you know how much we love you and appreciate everything you do.

More time has gone by than I remember and it's insane how much has happened in that time.

My little boy informs me daily that he is a Big Boy and a Nice Boy. And he is both!! He also has started telling me -"I need to see sumping" (translation- something) and after I explain something he says "Ohhh, Right." He is growing up so fast and he is still so cute!

Lex is doing little sting bug moves and loves to stand up in her crib and bassinet (the latter one scares me pretty bad). She is gaining weight very slowly and is still really small. Casey has taught her how to kiss the mirror and he has loved spending more time with the kids this month.

I have been working a little bit more than usual this month and I sure do appreciate my kids more. I love coming home and having Jordan run up to me and say "Mom, Mom" and hug me around the knees. He also asks, "work good?". So it has been fun and we are looking forward to having Christmas because he is so cute and saying "ho, ho, ho, Merry Chisimas (that's it phenetically)".
