I don't know about the rest of you but I really need to get rid of some of this extra weight that I have on my body. Tyrone and the boys got me the best Christmas present ever invented for losing weight. It is called the BodyBugg. You wear an arm band and a watch (shows you how many calories you have burned and much more) all day. At the end of the day you go online and upload all of your information onto the computer. You also type in what you ate and how much and it will tell you how many calories you ate for the day. It is suppose to be a great tool in helping people lose weight. Hopefully in three months I will be down 12 pounds.

Merry Christmas

I have been wanting to make our bedroom more "romantic" so for Christmas my mom got us this really pretty bed in a bag. The picture does not do it justice.
Mary, Linda, Cheyenne and Brandyn singing Ruldolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for the little program that we put on for Christmas Eve.

Everyone just sitting around visiting and relaxing.

Douglas was so funny when he saw his Santa gift he said "oooh"

Clint loved the Leapster2 that he got from Santa. It came with a Wall-E game

This is my handsome great nephew Gage. He is 4 1/2 months and is having surgery done on the 30th of this month to get his lip fixed. He is such a happy baby.

Santa always makes a visit to my parents house on Christmas Eve and by the time Santa left Douglas was going up to him and giving him kisses. Nothing like at the ward party last weekend.

Clint loves Santa. He had no problem going up to get his gifts from Santa.
I just love Christmas. It has always been my favorite holiday and it is even better now that the boys are older and get excited about opening gifts and seeing Santa. Like Bek our boys got new pj's for Christmas Eve and this year my mom decided to get Me and Tyrone new pj's too. We were going to take a family picture on Christmas morning with all of us in our new pj's but when we got home last night Douglas threw up all over his pj's. For some reason when we go to grandparents houses the kids eat sugar, sugar, sugar. Well that did not agree with Douglas. The family pj picture will have to be taken later.

Tis the season

Clint telling Santa what he wants for Christmas.
While taking family pictures for our Christmas cards Clint and Douglas climbed up on the bench and started saying "cheese"

Our Christmas tree.

Douglas not liking Santa too much. I was a mean mom and made him sit on Santa's lap before he could get the goodie bag.

70th Birthday Celebration

We had a big birthday party for my dad this weekend and after all of the guests left we took some family photos. The party was a big success. We sent out 50 invitations and about 1/2 came. Not bad considering it was a Friday night and it is a busy time of the year. We had a great time and I am glad that we got to celebrate my dad's big day with him.
