Merry Christmas from us to you..

Kate's version of "Merry Christmas." We have been working hard to help her know that Halloween is over and that it's Christmas. I think she has finally got it!

Fieldtrip to the Fire Station...

A week ago I took Zach to the Murray City Fire Station for a little tour. He was so excited, but did not want to try any of the gear on, which surprised me. He did however, want to act out the role of a fireman...going down the pole, except trying it from the bottom up, driving the fire truck, etc. He was in Boy Heaven! Aunt Paige and Uncle Patrick came along too. They were in town to see our nieces, Maddi and Lauren, perform in Ballet West's Nutcracker. They are so fun with the kids. Probably because they don't have their own yet, so they know at the end of the day they get to say good-bye. Isn't that how it works?

Need Christmas Gift Ideas...

So if you have a five year old, or I bet even up to 9 year old, and you need a great idea for a christmas gift...this is it! Zach got this for his birthday. Between pretending to be Bumblebee and Buzz Lightyear, he has thoroughly been entertained.

Happy 5th Zach...

Yesterday was Zach's 5th birthday. He was so excited to have friends and family over. We ate pizza, opened presents, made gingerbread houses and had cake. Zach begged and begged for a "Toy Story" birthday, and of course the Disney Store is all the way in Provo. Thank goodness for the internet! I printed off "Buzzler", as Kate calls him, and Woody, and came up with a few little decorations, and got blue and green paper products, trying my best to pull it off. The hit was the cake. Zach's eyes popped out of his head when we went to Smith's with me to pick it up. They were the only store in the entire valley that still made a buzz lightyear cake...I am telling you the things we do for our kids. The boy could hardly wait! He had a great birthday, and Justin and I had a fun time putting it together. It was so fun to see Zach so excited. After every gift he opened he replied "YES!" Needless to say he was so thankful for all his new toys. He has been playing non-stop all day. I am surprised I was able to get him off to school. We love you Zach! Happy Birthday Bud.

Loving Us Some Lady Gaga...

Yes Lady Gaga is a little crazy when it comes to the performance side of her, but she is pretty talented. Check out her SNL performance on You Tube...just her on the piano, no other band members, dancers, etc. Click HERE to see it. The best comes in at about 2 minutes. Pretty darn good. Kate is loving her too!
Unfortunately she also is liking Miley Cyrus, who I think has not so much talent.
