Merry Christmas 2008!!

Christmas was very busy this year. After we opened presents at our house, we had to get ready to be at Jon's Grandmas in Holiday by 1:00 p.m. Then since it was our turn to host Christmas for my side of the family it was a big rush to hurry and get back to our house by 4:30 p.m. Everything is just so much harder with 2 small children with no naps!!! But at the end of the day it was a lot of fun spending time with family. Hopefully next year won't be so hectic!
Chandler and Charli on Christmas Eve, making sure everything is perfect for Santa.

Charli on Christmas morning......really excited!!

Out of all the things Chandler got, his box of crayons were his favorite. I could have saved alot of money. :)

The Lee family Christmas party!

So Jon comes from a a family that's a yours, mine and ours kinda thing. Jon's dad has 5 children from his first marriage, Jon's mom has 1 from her first marriage and together they have 2 (Jon and Rachel). So since his family is so big they have a seperate Christmas party for the Lee side. It was fun, the only sad part was no Santa. :( Jon's gramps that just passed away this last summer would play Santa every year for the longest time. All the grandchildren loved it, they would sit on his lap and Jon's dad would take a picture. It was great, no mall lines. :) The older children started to figure it out as they get older, it was funny a couple years ago my niece Cassidee said to her mom, "he smells like gramps." It was so funny. Chandler got a couple years with him, but Charli will never now "Gramps Santa" :( Looks like it's to the mall we go!!

Funny little guy!

I just had to add this because it was so funny.......So Chandler was eating Lucky Charms the other day and he pulls out a moon and says, "look mom it's a crescent." Excuse me, what?? I had to ask him again to make sure I heard him correctly, he is only 2 1/2. It was so funny. I immediately had to call Jon, my mom and my grandma, they couldn't believe it. Thanks Blue's Clues for helping with my children's education. :) Hilarious!!

Happy Birthday Kelly!!

This weekend we celebrated my younger sister Kelly's birthday. The fam went to Ruby River, we had a great time. Too bad we didn't know until it was too late that Kyle Whittingham, Brian Johnson and a few other "Utes" were there too. It would have been cool to add those pics to the blog. :) Jon did shake Kyle Whittinghams hand and thanked him for a great season. It was a fun night!!

The Festival of Trees!

Jon's mom is on the board for the Festival of Trees, so every year since I have known Jon we go and volunteer throughout the week. Then on Saturday we usually go to enjoy it ourselves. It's fun to see all the different trees people donate. And when they are sold all the money goes to Primary Childrens. It's a fun night and a good cause.

Charli and GG (my mom)

This tree was awesome, it was all glass. It went for over $40,000. This picture really doesn't do it any justice.

This was one of the many trees Jon's mom did for the festival. This one was for Jon's Gramps who just recently passed away in July. :(

5 kids, Wow!!

Friday night Jon and I watched our 3 adorable nieces so Rachel and Joe could go to a Christmas Party. Yeh, that's right 5 kids total! Jon and I kept saying to each other, "Can you believe people really have this many kids." They were all actually really good, we had a good time. I would do it again in a heartbeat..........
Mmmmm, pizza!
Kennedy had us laughing so hard with her imitation of Grandma singing Opera!

The girls did a great job with those cookies!

The aftermath!

Tis' the season!

Earlier this week we decorated the tree, it was so cute watching Chandler and Charli try to put the ornaments on the tree (and take them off again).

Such good little helpers

Jon added his touch

And I added mine! I know only Michelle would appreciate this. :)

Thanksgiving week!

I am such a dork and didn't take any pictures of our Thanksgiving fun, food or family, but we had a blast and ate way too much. I am so Thankful for my family and Jon's family, I love you all. Thanks for a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Where a kid can be a kid!

Jon and I had this whole week off, so we decided to take the kids to Chuck E. Cheese. I grew up going to Chuck E. Cheese, I probably had at least 5 birthday parties there, so I knew they would have a blast. Needless to say baby wipes and hand sanitizer were used in large supply. :)

Body Worlds!

Jon and I also went to the Body Worlds museum this week. It is amazing to see how the human body functions. The museum is only here until January, so if you haven't been yet I highly reccommend it.

BCS Bound!!

What a game to be at! Jon was so excited to go to the Utah/BYU game thanks to his sister Rachel who had generously offered her ticket to him. She called me Friday night to ask if it was alright if Jon go to the game with Joe, I knew Jon would be stoked so of course I had to say yes. :) I told her we would have our own party, and did we ever. Charli would start crying everytime we screamed when something exciting happened on the game, needless to say she cried a few times, we couldn't help it, that was an exciting game. Player of the game should have gone to Max Hall with his 5 interceptions and 1 fumble!! :)

You better believe Jon and Joe were down there with all those crazies.

Yeh baby!

Me, Rachel and Kim Wood (Rachels fellow teacher friend)-Crazy girls!

Go Utes!
