Aidan insisted on wearing “exercise clothes like Uncle Nathaniel” to do Wii Fit.  Here he is showing his muscles after exercising.

Ruby and Chace's Wedding 214

When Logan was a young boy he was playing with a small catapult toy.  The wire that he was shooting went the wrong way and went into his eye.  Eventually a cataract developed over the eye and had to be removed.  He used to tell everyone that he had x-ray vision if they asked about his eye :-)

Christmas 2009 068

Christmas Day was very restful.  By the late afternoon we were boiling hot and went and had a swim by Lara and Andrew.  Orin was terrified that he would sink and held onto us for dear life.

Christmas Eve with the family.  It was a beautiful evening.  My favourite part:  Each family had to present a small spiritual thought.  It was so nice to sing Christmas carols and hear testimonies about Jesus Christ.

Off to church.

Christmas 2009 084

On Boxing Day we went to my Dad.  Logan spent a lot of time with Orin in the water and eventually he was jumping in the water on his own!  It was lovely to spend time with my family.

Christmas 2009 013

Orin loves Kyle’s stocking so much!  He is often seen hugging it.  Excuse the bright green fireplace.  One day it will be changed when I make up my mind what I want to do with it!

Action shot:  Bouncing in the Jolly Jumper.  I don't think they are ideal but when you are frantically trying to get everything done for Christmas they work a charm.

Aidan watching himself on TV.  Logan's feet in the background :-)

Eating my toes is fun to do!

19 December, 2009

Saying goodbye to the Jubbers and all the cousins. The children really enjoyed spending time with Justin's children on the beach.  What sweet children.

18 December, 2009

The picture above our bed.  Aidan says that the women in blue looks like me.

17 December, 2009

Early morning.  We woke up thinking it was so late but it was only 4.50am.

16 December, 2009

We are on holiday.  This is what greeted us when we arrived.

15 December, 2009

Logan brought this home from work tonight.

14 December, 2009

We had a visit to the dentist today.  I took everyone except Jesse with me.  It was a good thing because I had to pretend that I was brave for my children.

13 December, 2009

Place settings for Chace and Ruby-Lynn's wedding.  Even Jesse got his own name card.

12 December, 2009

Just keeping it real folks.  Look at the grumpy faces.  Makes me laugh every time!

11 December, 2009

Our wonderfully kind babysitters for the evening:  Theo and Tammy.  They did a wonderful job of looking after the children.  This is a before picture.  Logan said we should've taken an 'after' picture too.

10 December, 2009

Playing together.  Orin always tells Jesse to 'Shush' or blocks his ears when he makes too much noise :-)

2 days left of school!

My Superheroes!

Aidan and his teacher.

Checking out my cute toy from Aunty June.

5 December, 2009

I am getting my reward for giving my mother gray hairs!  My boys love climbing up things and it scares me so much.  I just try let them get on with it.  Doesn't Aidan have sticky feet?

I love Christmas Time!  And I love our tree!

1 December, 2009

Do you see how big that smile is?
This photo was taken after Kyle's Honour's Evening.....He is now a monitor.  After term one next year he will be re-evaluated and may have a chance of being a prefect.  He was SO happy.

30 November, 2009

We put up the Christmas tree tonight.  It was so much fun watching Orin get excited.  In this photo he has stolen Kyle's Christmas stocking to use as a hat.  It took much persuading on Kyle's part to give it back.

Baby banana.

27 November, 2009

I made Orin some pants out of old jeans that I have.

26 November, 2009

Mmmmm....first watermelon of the season!

25 November, 2009

Orin has been complaining that his foot is sore and I kept on looking underneath, thinking that he might have a splinter involved.  This morning he woke up and immediately showed me his foot.  I couldn't miss it this time.  Looked like spider bite to me. I took him to the pharmacy and he said I should take Orin straight to the doctor to get antibiotics.  It is really swollen and sore.

24 November, 2009

This is the happiness we wake up to every morning!  Usually at 5.00 when Logan leaves, Jesse wakes up and cuddles in bed with me.  He falls  asleep again and I get up and get started with my day.  He is happy and smiling most of the time and I love fetching him from the bed and seeing that smiley face.

23 November, 2009

Haircut time!  Thanks Logan.

22 November, 2009

Aidan gave a talk in primary today about "How I can prepare now to be a father".  He did really well.  The funny thing was that he thought his talk was for sacrament.  He complained bitterly when we told him that he can't sit on the stand and give his talk.

21 November, 2009

Jesse and Aaron, Devra's little one.  I babysat on Saturday and had fun taking a few pictures of them.  They are 10 days apart.

20 November, 2009

One of Aidan's chores is to put the clean cutlery from the dishwasher into the cutlery tray.  I guess he wasn't too enthusiastic today!

19 November, 2009

Travelling to my mom's house I saw beautiful sunflowers all along the highway.  I wondered who had planted them there and how they warmed one's heart.  Tried to take a photo and then thought better of it - 120km and 3 little ones in the car didn't make it a worthwhile option.

18 November, 2009

Flapjacks on a rainy day helped to cheer us up.

17 November, 2009

Even though it is so cold, Orin keeps on undressing! The neighbour said to me a while ago: "Shoo he loves to be n a k ed , doesn't he?"
So..flip flops and machine gun it is.

Brrr....the weather has turned cold and I am dressing the children in winter clothes! Jesse has started sucking his bottom lip and it looks like he is sad in all his photos.

Nothing to post today so let me be honest: This is what I look like in the mornings when I eat my breakfast and check my emails and blogs that I like.
