Random Behindness

Procrastination.... it's something I'm working on! I thought I would just post some pictures of some things that have been going on around here, things that have kept me too busy to post :)

Kaylee and McKay whispering their not-so-secret Christmas wishes. This was at our Ward Christmas Party/Talent Show. They performed their first piano solos and did an outstanding job. They really didn't appear nervous at all. Then our family performed a musical number: Kaylee and McKay on piano, Griffin on Clarinet, April on Flute and Steve played the bells. Owen would have played the Sax, but he was sick and Nana so sweetly stayed behind to tend to him.


Making Christmas Cookies with Nana.


Kaylee and McKay had a cute school Christmas play that we all enjoyed.


Our (blurry) Christmas Tree this year.


Our fat, lazy kitty Otis. He loves to get in the middle of the laundry as it comes out of the dryer, nice and warm. It's help I can do without!



Kaylee and McKay in their cute new Christmas presents.


We had a great time visiting a light exhibit in Augusta. The boys brought their good buddy Kyler. We went to a private residence where they decorate their yard and several sheds with different themed Christmas displays. At first, we were skeptical but by the time the evening was over... we all felt the love of our Savior more fully. It was a special experience for all.

Right before Christmas, we had three of the four kids all come down with the flu at the SAME TIME! It was quite challenging and pitiful, but we made it through.

Although the three kids were home and sick, they felt so bad that hardly a peep was heard.


This is McKay's sick hair... she didn't want to move from the couch and she certainly didn't want me brushing her hair! Luckily I convinced her that a bath would help her to feel better and we were able to rescue her from the rats.

Snow is falling all around...


It was soo fun to receive a light snow storm the day after Christmas! It was on Sunday and since the Bishop didn't want anyone driving in the snow, we got to spend the whole day at home enjoying one another. The girls put on a magic show with their new magic set.




This was our January snow storm. The kids actually missed TWO days of school.


Our attempt at sledding.


Steve cracks me up!

Our yard as a sheet of ice.

So proud of Griffin and Owen. They received their first letter for their great Tennis playing. We are in the middle of Soccer season (more pictures to come).




Steve had to have surgery again to tweak his Hiatal Hernia surgery. This is him before surgery:










And this is him After:









Quite a difference in mood. We have been very blessed the past month, despite illness and surgery. All have made a speedy recovery.
