The Holidays

Christmas was a busy time, lots of family parties and Dylan’s birthday. I think it was one of the best Christmas's. We had all our family come over to celebrate Dylan’s birthday. Brett was also here visiting for two weeks. The whole family was so happy to see Brett home after being at Boot Camp. It is going to be sad to see him leave again. We won't see him again until May. Here are my boys listening to all of Brett’s stories about his time at Boot Camp. It's really neat to see one of my family members serving our country. Dylan turned 8 this year.

He is starting scouts and he decided to be Baptized. I just can't belive how fast he is growing up!

On his birthday I made him a special dinner and then we opened up presents. We gave him his new Scout shirt and Scout book, some shoes, a movie, and a couple other things. Later that night we watch a movie and ate his birthday cupcakes. On Christmas morning Blair had to wake the boys up at 8:30! Dylan told me they were too tired. We even put them bed early! Since when do kids sleep in on Christmas morning!? Dylan wanted to learn Lacrosse, so Santa brought him the stuff for that. Both Dylan and Carson got mp3 players and little remote controlled helicopters. Carson wrote Santa a couple of letters this year. He was asking Santa for a guitar, so that he could give it to Dylan. How cute is that! My Mom bought Dylan the guitar for Christmas so Carson was able to give that one to him. Santa brought Carson a Kung Fu Panda sword. He was so excited for that sword, he also got a big Legos set and Transformers. Shawn is really in to the movie Toy Story, so I found him a Buzz action figure. When he opened it up his little face was stunned. He was so excited to have Buzz. He was making Buzz fly all around the house. Shawn also got some little airplanes and motorcycles. Christmas day we went to Blair’s Mom's in Ogden for breakfast, my parents in Bountiful for lunch, and then Blair’s Dad's in Sandy for dinner. It was a very busy day and I don’t think we could eat any more, but the we loved every minute.

I ran across your blog today and I just wanted to say Hi! I think you have a fantastically cute family. I used to live in Clinton. Just around the corner. Sorta. We lived there for 5 or 6 years but moved away about a year ago.
