Why is he different?

Last night we took the girls to see SANTA, pictures to come. Avery did great and told him she wanted a Glo-doodle and Chef Barbie. I sure hope she gets this Chef-Barbie thing out of her head soon, Santa has other ideas. Adi wouldn't go near him and had to be held the moment we stepped out of the car. He was a good Santa, but apparently he was a smoking Santa. I didn't get close enough to notice that, but Ty and Avery sure noticed.
Anyways, last night I was trying to put Avery to sleep. After an hour she was still wide awake, and I was a very frustrated MOMMY!! As we laid there, she finally spit out the question that had kept her mind going and thus keeping her awake. "Mommy, why was that Santas beard not curly and white and long like the one I saw on Satruday?" She had been thinking and thinking about that the whole time she was laying in bed. I explained to her that Santa has helpers everywhere so they can see all of the kids, blah, blah, blah!!!! Obviously, not a good enough answer, because she said, "I understand that he has helpers, but shouldn't Santa make sure they all dress alike and have the same COLORED beard, so kids don't get confused." Explain that one. I told her go to sleep and we would talk about it in the morning. I am still thinking of the answer to that question, and she has forgotten for the moment.

Finally Fall

My girls have been waiting and waiting for this day to come. To play in the leaves. They finally got their day in DECEMBER. Things are a little different down here in sunny St. George. Last Friday, Avery and Adison got to play with their cousins Madi and Maleea all day. They were getting a little stir crazy in the house, so we headed to the park. Lucky for us, the leaves were falling like crazy. These 4 little girls worked so hard to build their pile as high as they could. They ran all over the park and would run back with arm fulls of leaves.They were very worried about their pile, because a "MEAN MOM" (as they called her, and I agreed) let her kids knock there pile over, so I stood gaurd over the pile so that no big kids would knock it down. There were some older kids working on their pile and they were so cute to help my girls make their pile bigger and bigger. They had such a fun time. Their little faces were just lit up the whole time. I had such a fun time watching the 4 of them. It was actually really cold, and Adi had had enough, so I pulled the car right up to the older girls and Adi and I watched them. We came home and had yummy hot chocolate. (I have to remind myself to buy a bag of marshmallows.) We are so lucky to have such fun cousins that live so close.

Thanksgiving and LIGHT PARADE!!!

We had a fun Thanksgiving this year. We headed up to Spanish Fork on Thanksgiving morning. We got there just in time for a yummy dinner. We had Thanksgiving at Tylers parents and my step-mom and 2 sisters were there and so were Tylers brother Mike and his family. It was a fun day.
Friday night we took the girls to the Light Parade. The girls loved it. I was not feeling good so I headed home and Tyler went to the BYU basketball game. So luckily they had grandma Olson, Grandma Kaiser, aunt Danielle and aunt Cassidy there to have fun with them.(Grandma Kaiser didn't send pictures of herself, shame on you.) They had fun, but look at Adison, they were cold.
Saturday I got some shopping done, then headed to the INTENSE BYU vs. UTAH game. It was a lot of fun, and BYU ended the RIVALRY WAR this year by beating UTAH in overtime 26-23.
It was a great weekend, spent with great family. Now on to Christmas. We are so excited.
