hmmm.craziness....

I have really been neglecting my blog.... and the funny thing is if I am checking my friends blogs and they neglect.... I get really sad and wonder what's going on....

So. I am going to be better. After all, it is the new year... I am in goal making mode.

IT WILL HAPPEN! :)

For now I am going to post several pics to represent the last month of craziness....


we drove to Phoenix for Christmas this year... it was really fun.... these first two pics represent the best part of the road trip ;)


Christmas eve we have a family tradition of opening one gift... PJ'S!!!! Kendyl was terribly (almost had a trip to the ER...) sick... Brad was out cold... Rylin was sleeping... and Avery opened EveRyOnes gift. She was in heaven. And honestly, so was I. I live for funny reactions from my kids.... and Av really put on a show for us...this was the face she made with each one...

Brad's Pj's... what a QT...

Queen Av with her throne... and princess gear.... she was in heaven...

This is what Santa looks like by mid afternoon, Christmas day...

We also drove to California and spent a couple of days in Palm Springs... then took off for Newport beach... the kids loved it... until Avery fell in. That was bad. She was pretty traumatized... we spent about an hour collecting shells and covering ourselves with sand for the drive home.



our Rylin turned 1 on the 30th of December.... she is such a wonderful little bug. Easiest baby ever. The day before Christmas she crashed into the corner of a coffee table and gave herself quite the black eye. That was nice for pictures.... figures.

she loves this throne Av got for Christmas... princess in training, I guess.

Oh my gosh I missed you. You fell off the planet. I'm glad your back (I've had to take a blogging break now and again. It is necessary)

It looks like you had a fabulous Christmas.
