First Tooth

Truman got his first tooth. Pictures to come.

Christmas at last...

We had a wonderful Christmas. We spent the night at my parents just in case Jeremy had to snow plow. The kids loved it. They threaten Grandpa not to eat Santa's cookies.

They got cute matching Christmas jammies from Nana and grandpa and they looked adorable.

Ever since I was little we would take pictures on the stairs. The kids could hardly stand waiting to go and see what Santa had brought for them. Truman is sitting on Jeremy's lap and I don't know why Emma's eyes are closed.

Truman got a cute blanket from my mom. It is the softest thing. I know you cant see his face but I still thought this was cute.

Caleb got more Trains for Christmas. We added on the airplane to his Geo tracks. With all of the pieces he already had it took up my parents basement. Emma got a lot of princes stuff and Tinkerbell. She loved it.

This is the kids with there great grandpa. He came over with Jeremy's parents to see what the kids got.
Overall we had a great Christmas. Jeremy went out and plowed the whole night of Christmas. (I will admit I prayed for snow. Snow means money. Which means I am going to start praying again.) Thanks to my parents for letting me crash for 2 days. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to see what the new year brings.

Eat all the Christmas Cookies you want


1. If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh out of the oven, it has no calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the test and thus calorie free.

2. If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie, it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.

3. If a friend comes over while you're making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample, you MUST sample with your friend. Because your friend's first cookie is calories free, rule #1 is yours also. It would be rude to let your friend sample alone and, being the friend that you are, that makes your cookie calorie free.

4. Any cookie calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move. This is due to gravity and the density of the caloric mass.

5. Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.

6. Cookies colored red or green have very few calories. Red ones have three and green ones have five - one calorie for each letter. Make more red ones!

7. Cookies eaten while watching "Miracle on 34Th Street" have no calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

8. As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking causes calorie leakage.

9. Any cookies consumed from someone else's plate have no calories since the calories rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate. We all know how calories like to CLING!

10. Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes NEVER have calories. It's a rule!

Baby Doll Cradles

We have a friend who builds the most beautiful furniture. He has built these baby cradles for baby dolls for Christmas presents. They are custom made and you will love them. They will be painted white. If you are interested let me know he still has a few left.

No Water

This morning Jeremy noticed water coming up in a crack in our circle. So he called Herriman City and this is what happened...

No water for the day.

Nap Time

So working late nights I try to take a nap during the day. Jeremy offered to watch the kids so I wouldn't be bothered. This is what I came down the stairs to. I guess it is better then sleeping and not knowing what they are up too.

Christmas lights on Temple Square

We decided to fight with the cold and crowds and went down to Temple Square to see the lights. This was the first time we have done it and the kids had a wonderful time.
