Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve we headed out for Tucson with my parents. We stayed at the Resort in Oro Valley. After we got to the resort and unloaded the grocieries we headed out to dinner. Just as we left the resort Dani yells "Mom looked I wrapped my eyes!" LOL Silly girl! Alex wanted to share in the fun!

We had dinner at Macyo's. Alex enjoyed playing thumb wrestining with Grandpa Hatch.

After a great dinner we gave the kids each a quarter for a gumball..... Danin was a WINNER!!! So she got a free Cheese crips voucher. All I hear is Alex yealling "DON"T EAT IT!" and then Dani Crying! She didn't understand that it was a winner! LOL After they gave her the voucher she got to eat it then she was happy!! As we were leaving I hadf an elderly couple stop us and compliment us on how good our kids were. That was so nice to hear!

When we got back it was time for showers and then the kids got to open thier Christmas PJ's, a family tradition. Rich and the kids ready to open the presents!

Presnts ready to go! We went from youngest to oldest.

All dressed! They love thier new PJ's

New Things......

Dani finally wore her new outfit to school! She got it for her birthday but hadn't worn it yet! It was so cute on her I had to take a picture! She is getting so big! She has on her Halloween earrings too! Super Cute Girl!

Rich finally got his C-Pac Machine for his sleep apnea, he says it seems to be helping and he is getting more sleep with it on. The Dr. told him that he has a sever case of sleep apnea and that his breathing was interrupted nearly every minute. No wonder he was so tired! Doesn't he look so cute! Ellie has started getting in bed with us around midnight, she is not a happy camper when I make her go back to her bed!

Halloween Haunting

Tonight for family home evening we took Halloween treats to four families in the area, put them by the door, knocked, and ran away. We let the kids take turns helping Rich. I think I had a better time watching them do it then they had doing it! Well maybe not!!! They thought that it was pretty neat!

All set to go!

More Soccer!

We had a majority of the Mortensen clan at the soccer game this weekend Grandma & Grandpa Mortensen came to see the Grandkids play! Carter and Michelle came to watch too. With two games going on it can be a little hard to keep track of everyone! But it was fun too! There is never a dull moment! The little ones seem to huddle around the ball! It is really funny to watch!

Ellie & Carter Hanging out!
Carter was really good at kicking the ball! To bad he is to little to play!
Chris, Dani, & Linds!

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

We took the kids to the Drive-In to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on Tues. (Its the cheap night!) The Gaddie's joined us and a great time was had by all!
All dressed in PJ's ready for the movie!
We took Rich's truck and let the kids all hang out in there, with mountains of blankets pillows and camping pads! They had Pizza, popcorn, and Ice cream..........

Ellie really enjoyed her Ice Cream!

Then she passed out about 40 minutes into the movie!

Not sure when Dani gave up............. but this is how we found her when we started to pack everything up!

It was a cute show and the kids enjoyed watching it with their friends! I enjoyed watching it with my friend too! She made brownies! Yummy! Thanks for coming Staci!
