Catch up!

Ok so we are now back from Vacation. So I'm going to start from the beginning since its been a whole month!!! Pictures to come!

My parents came down to see Logan get baptized and that was so awesome! We are so excited for him and love to see his excitement for the gospel and the scriptures! My parents took Kaden with them because I would be flying out in a week anyway, and that would be one less kid to worry about. They had so much fun together but I don't think they remembered how much energy it takes to watch one that weighs so much and has so much energy!

We had Kira's birthday party the sat before we left. When we woke up that morning there was 2 ft of snow!!! We didn't know if the van would make it out! Then the power went out and I still had to cook the pizzas! Luckily my wonderful friend Rachel let us come and cook the pizzas at her house! Kira had such a nice time at her party and was so happy!

We flew out that Tuesday for my parents house and our 6 hr trip turned into a 12 hr trip! Luckily I didn't have Kaden or I don't think I would have made it! One problem was that I caught Dallas licking one of the hand rails, I thought I caught him in enough time but 2 days later he was pucking his guts out..then the rest of us were! I felt so bad. My Dad, my mom, my brothers, my sister in-laws, my nephew, my grandpa, my kids, my husband, the missionarys, it was so bad!!! Oh well! A Christmas to remember right! My husband was snowed in after we left until he had to leave and it looked like he got out in enough time because the snow just DUMPED after he left and he wouldn't have gotten to come. We had so much fun at Gma and Papa's house even though we were all not feeling well all at different times.

Peter had to go home the Monday after Christmas and then we did wedding prep for the rest of the week. Brad and Rachel's wedding was fabulous! Kira thought she was in princess land! She was in heaven! She even enjoyed cleaning it all up...she didn't want to leave! After that it was time to get packed up and go home. Luckily on the way home we were only delayed 45 min so that wasn't too bad. Logan and Kira are still bouncing off the walls though! It's been hard to get everybody back into a routine! Even me! Kaden is finally getting used to not being held constantly but it took a LOT of screaming!!

We had so much fun and we wish it could have lasted longer but now we have to get back into the swing of things.

We hope you all enjoyed your holidays!!!

Glad to see that you are back home safe and sound. Kira looks amazing! There's just something about the dark features, if you know what I mean? Blondes, you could never pull that off!

Holy moly...first of all I can't believe you have an 8 year old, and second, you amaze me with all your kids...you handle things so well. I don't think I could have made a trip alone like that with 3 kids. A miracle worker you are! Bummer about getting sick at Christmas. I dread taking my kids anywhere because I know they'll stick there mouths somewhere germ infested, and then it's only a matter of time and we're sick, yet again. Oh, well. Life. It's all for our good, right?
