So this year we decided as a family that we have way to many toys, and more clothes than most kids need. So we asked our kids if they wanted to write a letter to Santa and tell him to take all our presents to kids that really need them, and we are headed to Florida for Christmas this year! We are so excited if you don't know, we love Florida and try to make it there as much as possible. This will make it 3 times this year for CJ and I, and twice this year for my kids. We have some really great friends down there CJ met on his mission that we consider family. So I hope the weather will be nice for us down there. We are going to do something new this time and drive to Miami which we have never been to yet, I am super excited! We are definitely going to miss our families here but just felt like it would be a good opportunity for my kids to see something else besides presents this year. We will take lots of pictures to post when we get back we will leave Christmas Day and come back New Years Day!!

So at the first of the month my sister Lisa scheduled pictures with our sister in law Jenny's friend, Kourtney to take our whole family picture for my moms Christmas present. Well while we were there, and all dressed I had her snap a few quick pics of my family. I think they turned out great especially for how quick they were taken, it honestly only took 5 or 10 min. (for my family pictures) you gotta love that! Well here they are, Thanks Kourtney I love them. If you want her info here it is http://www.318photography.com/

Today my not so little anymore Jaeden turned 7! Yes I can't believe it myself that I have a seven year old. It seems so crazy to me that 7 years ago I woke up, and told CJ I think he needed to stay home. Well at 8 a.m. I got sent home and decided to walk to my sisters house that was a few blocks away Yeah I didn't make it there, my friend Holly had to come pick us up and take me there while CJ got the car. By the time I got to the hospital, I was shuffling my way in and bawling my eyes out, especially when they told me all the rooms were full including the triage ones, so I would need to wait in the waiting room. I looked at that nurse and said I came in at 8 a.m. this morning and left at a 4 I have been having contractions for 4 hrs. at 3 min. apart and I needed a room. I think she knew I was serious! They got me right in and I was a 7 my baby was born that night around 7p.m. weighing 7lb. 10oz. This 7 thing must have meant good luck or something because I have been the luckiest mom to have this sweet, crazy, loving little boy in my life for 7 yrs. now. Jaeden we love you sooo much and couldn't imagine our life's without you especially since he was born on our 9 month anniversary we didn't have much time to imagine it without him. But I wouldn't trade it for anything! He may be crazy and wild at times but the sweet little things this special boy does makes me forget those things. Just a little thing for me to remember, tonight I went to drop CJ off at my brothers to pick up our motor home. We get there and of course the kids want to drive with dad in the motor home so they both jump out, and Treyson starts crying because he wants to go too. So I get him out take him around to get in, and Avery and Treyson are in the motor home CJ asks me where Jaeden was. I said I'm not sure so I went around to the car and there he was sitting in my car all buckled up again. I opened the door and asked him what he was doing. He looked at me and said I don't want you to have to drive by yourself. I broke down in tears, it's the little things like that this little boy does that just makes me so proud of him! If I could remember to be like that more often I would be a much better person. I am blessed to have this sweet child as my son and love him so much! Happy Birthday Jaeden we love you!!

CJ took Friday off so we could go up to Panguitch as a family. My mom and aunt Melanie came up Thursday night, and on Friday morning CJ took the kids up hunting while we cleaned out my grandma's storage room in her basement. It was a lot of work but so worth it when it was all done, and we had a good time doing it. My family also had a great time playing in the mountains. They of course didn't see anything, I didn't think they would especially with my 3 kids going along. Other then that we spent a lot of time relaxing, watching movies, and hanging out. A well needed break from everything. This is a new face Treyson has started doing it was so funny we were getting kids ready for bed and he kept doing this face. We were laughing at him and he just kept doing it over and over again. Silly boy I just love my kids so much!

I think I am always late at posting things. I'm just not a great blogger. But I really wanted to have pictures to remember their first days of school it wasn't the same days but I guess that the good thing about being late is I can post them together! They were both really excited to start school and are loving their teachers. I'm really glad they have made some good friends already this year. I can't believe I have two kids in school already!

All ready for Kindergarten
Avery and her friend Jaxon.
We took our boat out to let the kids go tubing. It was so much fun we even let Tinkerbell come along on our boating trip. We have had such a great summer at the lake. We sure are going to be sad when it's to cold to go anymore. I didn't get pictures of C.J. but he told me I couldn't get him off the tube, well I showed him. I would floor the boat and then all of a sudden turn. The tube would be clear up on its side. The rope actually broke, and he went rolling over the water it was so funny I wish I could have taken pictures and drove the boat at the same time!
