My kids at Christmas.

I can't believe that Christmas is already over. My kids keep asking me when Santa is coming again. They had so much fun. A couple of days before Christmas Jared told me that Santa couldn't come because we didn't have a fireplace. I had to explain to him that Santa has a special key that lets him in our house. He's starting to get to smart for his own good. Shawn fixed our computer for us. It is so nice to finally have it back. We are actually going up to my mom and dad's for New Years this year. It will be fun. Meagan, here are some pics of Kaleigh's hair cut. The other pics are of Christmas Eve and Kaleigh trying to put on a pair of the boys underware.

Happy Holidays

It's been a while since I last wrote. My computer has been down and I have to use Kristanne's computer. We had a great Thanksgiving. We had dinner at Chad's parents house. Today we are at Kristanne's house for dinner with the Crittenden clan. The other day the kids cut Kaleigh's hair so we had to cut it short. I will post pictures later. I can't believe that Christmas is only 4 weeks away. I am almost ready. Kaden will be leaving us soon. The state wants him in a home that is willing to adopt him if needs be. I still hope that his mom can get him back.

I'm done for another year.

After spending the last week and a half cleaning my re-licensing is finally over. After putting the kids to bed last night I finished cleaning. I made my appointment for 8:30 this morning so it would still be clean before the kids could destroy it. It is nice to have a really clean house though.

My new living room

I thought I would post a couple of pics to let everyone know what my living room looks like. The first pic is the new wall we built. The next two show the paint color and that we painted the brown trim white.

The cleaning never ends.

I spent most of the day cleaning my house. We have re-licensing next week for foster care so I decided to start now instead of waiting until the day before. I scrubed my floor with a magic eraser. I love those. I also wiped down my cabinates. My house wasn't to messy because I cleaned really good when we had Kaleigh's blessing. Also I haven't put everything back in my living room from remodeling. I put the boy's beds into bunk beds. Jared loves having his bed on top. He says he's big now. Tonight I went to a Mary Kay party. The host was my babysitters sister. She went through cosmetology so she did our makeup for us. I actually looked pretty good. To bad it was to late to go out.

I fanally have my computer back.

It's been almost a month since I've last posted. Our computer died on us and we couldn't figure out what was wrong. Chad finally took it in to Best Buy and had the geek squad look at it. The guy opened it and asked him when the last time it was dusted out was. Appearently there was so much dust that it would overheat and turn itself off. Our living room is also done. We build a wall comming out on the wall that went all the way from the living room to the kitchen. We now have seperate rooms. We got new carpet. Now I'm beeing really freaky about any food going into my living room. Now I just have to keep on my boys. The big one is the worst. (Chad) Jared is loving preschool. The teacher said he is doing really good. We blessd Kaleigh on the 7th of September. She looked so cute. WE had a dinner here after. Other than the bee's it turned out nice. Meagan is here visiting. Kris and Granny hosted a baby shower for her. It was good to see her. She looks so cute pregnate.

Have you ever just had one of those days?

Ok. Today was one of those days that went from bad to worse. We are getting ready to paint and get new carpet so I have been cleaning and getting rid of a lot of things. Jared was out of school today (he started on Monday) and he and Anthony just went from one thing to another. First, while I was in the bathroom they got a gallon of orange punch out of the fridge. There was probably 3/4 gallon left. They took it into the living room. They ended up spilling the whole thing on my recliner and floor. I sent them to their room while I cleaned that up. I heard banging in their room so I went down to see what they were doing. They had gotten a crowbar from the other room (don't know what it was doing there) and proceded to hit their wall with it. I was so mad. They dumped their toys all over. I made them help me pick them up.

Our at home vacation

This last week has been alot of fun. On the 24th we went to Granny and Gramps for the hot dog roast and fireworks. Chad had to work the next day so he had to leave early. I stayed over and slept outside with Kris and the kids. Other than the dog barking all night it was fun. We saw a few shooting stars. The shy was beautiful. On Friday Kris and Lill took the boys with them up camping so I could finish up packing for camping. We went to the Uinta's and stayed in the East Fork Bear River campground so we could be by Uncle Herbs trailer. When I got there I was informed that the boys had gone skinny dipping in the river. We had alot of fun. We went to Provo River Falls and then to a lake so the kids could fish. Chad and I and the kids came home on Monday. On Wednesday we took the kids to the zoo. They had so much fun. Their favorite part was the monkey house and the train ride. We also rode the carousel. On Saturday we took the kids to the Harrisville Herritage days. We entered Kaleigh in the baby contest. She won for the brownest eyes. They had several catagories to sign up for but I only signed her up for 3. We had the family reunion Saturday afternoon. Saturday night was the fireworks for Harrisville. We went to LillieAnn's house and watched them from her front yard. Tomorrow we adopt Kaleigh. I am so excited. I will post more about that later.

We will be having our 24th of July hot dog roast and sleep over at Granny and Gramps. I am actually sleeping over with the kids this year. Chad has to work. We will be going camping this weekend. For those of you who don't know my boys are almost potty trained. YEAH!!!!!!
