Karson's Sleigh

So Karson had his (very cute might I add) little Preschool program today. He was the sleigh for the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" story. So Kregg made the sleigh, and it was a really big hit. In this video, you can actually hear all of the audience laugh and awe as he came out (he comes out about 20 seconds into the video). It was cute- and of course- it's another thing that makes my husband's head bigger. I was really worried that he was going to knock somebody out- but he didn't! It's stuff like this when I really wish I had a video camera.

Lights at St. George Temple

We went with our friends the West's. We had a great time! This is Ty's friend Zach.
This was when the kids were the happiest. Playing on the Temple steps. This is Mary, Karson, and Mary's friend Ben.
This picture cracks me up. I wish it would have turned out better! If you look close up- Ty just kills me. I think he gets that smile from me- I have plenty of pics of me with that smile when I was a kid!

Man I love my kids!

So I've had this whole morning, noon, and night sickness thing goin' on (it's doing a lot better now). But Mary has been there right with me through the whole thing. Always asking me if I'm okay. She seems to always make me feel better. She will be a great big sister.
Can you see how happy Karson is to share this stool with Mary? Still cute.

Our Gingerbread House

Man they had a great time! Especially Karson- he had to have every piece of candy perfect- and he was so patient! I spent most of my time trying to keep Mary from eating all of the candy.
This was Karson's side. He did the whole side by himself!

Decorating the Tree

So my boys decorated the tree this year- we gave them full reins. We told them to keep all the ornaments up high- so if you notice- they are all in one glob. Very cute, though! Making memories. I'm not real sure what was up with Ty and him sticking his tummy out in all the pics...

Karson thought he was the coolest- wearing the stockings on his feet. "That's what they are really for, right mom??"
What a spaz.

Dancing at School

So after Ty's cup stacking competition they did this thing that I guess is pretty big in Elementary school (wow I'm sounding old). I'm sorry it is so dark, but it really was a lot of fun to watch them all do this. FYI- the girl in the yellow shirt next to him is that Valerie girl that still wants to be with him all the time. Unfortunately- she lost his phone number. But they still play from time to time!

Ty's Cup Stacking Competition

So Ty was the top boy in his Kindergarten class in cup stacking, so he qualified for the finals! Kregg and I got to go see him- it was so cute! I'm sorry these pics are so horrible...
Cup stacking is actually pretty entertaining. You start with 3 stacks of 3 cups.
Then you make them into 3 pyramids, and then clasp them back down as fast as you can.
Ty did a great job. He didn't make it to the top 3, but he still did a great job. We're very proud of him!

I got tagged again!

So Lace actually tagged me around Thanksgiving and I totally forgot about it. I don't know how much you all really like reading these- but I do- so I'll do them. It's always nice learning more about people. Anyway- so here it is...

What was I doing 10 years ago? Holy cow- 10 years ago I was just starting to think about my infamous plan to get Kregg! This New Years Eve started the New Year's resolution. I was doing a lot of hanging out with friends and working at PayLess Drug. I had just decided that college was not for me. Good times, though.

What was I doing 5 years ago? 5 Years ago Ty was 1 and that was keeping me busy! Plus I was working 2 jobs (UCD was shutting down and I had just started at Fidelity). Kregg got his promotion to Manager at the store we met at. We were busy being a family and making a house payment!

What was I doing 1 year ago? One year ago we had just moved to Mesquite! Not really knowing anyone out here yet- but shocked at how warm it was. This Christmas will be a lot funner since we know people now.

What was I doing yesterday? Puking. Oh yeah- for those of you who don't know- I'm pregnant. Due in July! Baby #4- pretty wild, huh? We're pretty excited, though! Anyway- back to yesterday- I also went to help out in Ty's class, and took Karson to preschool. And watched "Biggest Loser." We love that show.

5 Snacks I enjoy: Man this is a hard one! Anything chocolate (can I do that??), cheese ball, beef stick, Doritos, and a good fruit/ veggie plate.

5 things I would do if I had a million dollars: Get out of debt! And then I would buy a house. And everything nice that would go in my house. Then I would go on a trip. Then we I would save the rest.

5 Places I would run away to: Salt Lake. The mountains. Oh- the beach if I could! My bedroom!

5 T.V. Shows I Like: Biggest Loser, The Office, Top Chef, Duff's Cake Show, Amazing Race

5 Things I Hate Doing: Cleaning, Yelling at my kids, Being late, Not paying a bill on time, Waking up too early

5 biggest joys of the moment: 1- My Husband- he's so awesome! I really am the happiest when I'm with him. 2- My kids, including the one growing inside of me. My kids make me laugh every day. 3- This season- the magic that surrounds everyone, and the closeness I feel with my Savior. 4- All of our family and friends that live so far away- getting to talk to you and think of you makes me so happy! 5- Mint Chocolate Chip ice-cream.

Okay! So that's it! Now I would like to tag: Christa, Heather Smith, Heather LeFevre, Wendy, Justen, Abby, and Sherry. And whoever else wants to! Love you all!

Some family pics

So we finally got some family pics taken. My good friend Michelle took them for us, and she did such a great job! It was actually a really crappy day- it had poured the whole day before and it was really cold and windy. Mary was pretty much the grumpiest that I had ever seen her, so this pic was actually the only smile we could get from her. Here are a few of the pics...
What a hunk, huh??
So this family picture really shows what our family is really like. Mary's crying, Karson is scowling, Ty is making a face, Kregg's not looking at the camera, and I'm oblivious to the whole thing. This is the one I wanted to put on the Christmas card! It doesn't get much more realistic than that!

Sorry- this pic is sideways- still cute, though!

Ty the Spaz

Aunt Lacie was nice enough to humor my son into posing for her... he is cute, though! He has quite the personality.
