Well this year I would have to say with the economy the way it is and Scott's line of work we are very blessed that we had a good Christmas. We have a roof over our heads with heat and 3 healthy children and family and great friends. We pause this time of year to give our time and talents and Love to our Savior Jesus Christ and enjoy this holiday season. We were able to see Santa twice this year and found out that Paige doesn't like him and wants nothing to do with him. Not even a little treat. Logan still isn't quit sure, yet. Tanner is really questioning him. We tell him as long as you believe he will come. Also along with the peeking of presents. If you peek or open it it goes back to the store. No more peeking. That was a quick fix.. We went to our small town Christmas parade and to a neighbor Santa party. It has been unusually cold this year for California. I know those of you reading this from colder states are laughing but for us here it's COLD... 45-47 .New years we hope for 69. Thant's warm. It feels so good to have the sun shinning.Tanner was excited as you can see with the Wii and even though daddy didn't want it he sure got into it. Grandy and Grandpa got Tanner stars wars costume trunk so they didn't hesitate to go change before they were finished with all their presents. They did wear them all day long. The 2 grown men on the ground would be Scott and his brother Darren on the ground something about dude your fat....and it was on. Grandpa or DAD had to come break them up because mom couldn't plus they were gonna knock the tree over. Idiots !!! We sure had fun visiting uncle Darren and his kids. The cousins don't get to play together enough. So it was great for them and then we played games all day and night.
As you all know Scott had gastric bypass last Dec and has lost quit a bit of weight. As most of you will see with the holiday picture we sent out. So if you have not seen him in a while hold on you might be shocked. He did his first Olympic distance tri in sept. and is currently training for his first 1/2 iron man in May. He weighs 147 lbs. And looks great.
Tanner is in second grade and is doing great.He is really good in math an Science. He loves sports and is very competitive. His soccer team went all the way to the finals this year and wound up in 2 place. and Tanner went to all stars . He was stoked!! We have a break before baseball starts up again. So we enjoy this break.
Logan is in preschool 3 week and love s his teacher and is doing great. He 's in a class with his best friend Cameron and he lives across the street so they play all the time and are very close. Logan loves to read and do puzzles and play batman and super heroes.
Paige is 21/2 and a real princess. but is very tough with 2 big bro. She can hold her own for the most part. She loves to read and do puzzles and play baby dolls.
Jessica is a busy mother between my church calling in primary and kids in school sports keeping a house and dealing with everyday life. I ran my first 5k turkey trot this year and beat my own time I put for myself. I'm proud of that and also the fact I've lost 2 dress sizes.Yea!!!
So this about sums up our life lately. Hope you enjoy the pictures and have a happy new year.
