Its almost here! Jackie is counting down.  She is SO excited! I really am loving Christmas through the eyes of a child. 

I am missing snow though....struggling to feel like Christmas without it.  Seriously Utah where is my SNOW?!?!

Sunday YW's put me in flow blown Christmas Spirit, I really enjoy my  calling. I love working with the youth! we had someone come sing the song below, its sure my favorite at Christmas time.

Jackie is REALLY enjoying our Christmas book tradition i had as a child (you read a Christmas story, scripture, and sing a song daily in December on the true meaning of Christmas).  Every night she reminds me its time to read our story i love it!  I hope she is grasping more of why we have Christmas and feeling that true spirit of Christmas by doing it....because toys are nice and all but I want her to REALLY grasp Christ is the reason for the season

Me, well I am just grateful for this time of year to remember my Savoir and everything he has done for me.  I am grateful for his love and his daily guidance in my life.
I am also excited to see my kiddos on Christmas morning! I sure hope their cute little faces are as happy and smiley as i have pictured in my head!
I am also happy we get to go to church on Christmas.  I don't think there could be a better way to focus on the Savior than to go Worship him on the day we remember his birth!!

Love all my friends out there Merry Christmas !

qucik update

Can you believe Christmas is almost here?  I seriously cant! I am always in awe of how quickly Christmas seems to sneak up on us. 

I am really excited though! I totally dig being a parent on Christmas.  I love love love finding gifts for my kids and get all excited to watch them open them :). 

But anyway a quick update since well i dont tend to blog at all any more haha

He LOVES his new job! Its going great.  He gets to sell people on the awesome sport of hockey.  Perfect! Also if anyone does want tickets to a game let me know he can hook you up!

Well i am staying plenty busy! with work and kiddos i am always on the go! I still LOVE my half days and feeling more like a mom on those days are nice.  I am recommitting my self to p90x so here is hoping i can drop some of this weight i put on since stopping nursing over a year ago....

We she is just our little sweetheart.  She is super cute with Abby and I love watching them grow into cute little sisters.  I hope they will be friends as they get older.  Jackie loves school and really enjoys what she learns there and all the crafts they do.  She is getting really excited to start kindergarten in the fall. 

Well miss Abby is still miss Abby.  She is SUCH a sweetheart and a cuddle bug most the time.  She sure has a STRONG other side though! She knows what she wants and is going to get her way.  She is our possessive child.  She knows what belongs to whom and no one else can have it.  (ie i cant have Derek s pillow and he cant have mine) lol.  She sure has a personality! I can never get enough of all the hugs and kisses she wants to give us!
