Jenna's Turn -

We were by the movie theater and we were discussing which movies we would like to see. Dave said he wouldn't mind seeing "Little Fockers." Of course all three kids say, "'Little Fockers,' what's that?" So I say, "Watch yourselves, that was pretty close to a bad word." Jenna's reply was, "Yeah, just take off the er at the end."

The Sweater Vest

We went shopping at the mall with Aunt Tiff. While we were at Macy's she found the cutest sweater vest for Tyler. Complete with penguins wearing scarfs. Dave immediately vetoed it's purchase. I told him that Ty is four and to butt out. At that point Rilie chimed in and said, "It's okay Dad. Ty is too big for anyone to beat up."

New York, Rilie's Birthday, Halloween and Fun Fun Fun

One picture post every few months - Sorry life is CRAZY!
We had so much fun in New York (Thanks Tiff.)
Rilie had her tenth birthday while we were there. She is such a blessing in our lives. There are way more than ten things I love about her.
Yes, I did take a picture of my dessert at Serendipity.
We came home to Family Fright Night at my Mom and Dad's house.
Have you ever seen three more fiercely adorable pirates?

The man of many words...

... and most of them funny.

Tyler and I were having a conversation about Christmas. I asked him if he thought he had been good, he went through a whole list of things such as being nice to his sisters, making his bed, helping take out the garbage etc... and came to the conclusion that yes he had been good. After sitting thoughtfully for a minute, he turned to me and said, "But Mom, do you know what? I have to keep being good because Santa checks that list twice."

Background: I am married to the biggest UTE fan in the world and has brain washed our children to follow in his footsteps.

We have a U of U Christmas tree. Every year we get new ornaments to add to our collection and show our loyalty. This year we let the kids help decorate the tree and Ty took great pride in the finished product. About a week later we were at my parents house and Ty gives their gorgeous, full, nine foot tree the once over, turns to my dad and says, "Your tree looks pretty good, but you don't have any Utah Nutcrackers." And with a pitying sigh walked away.
