Random life

I have been enjoying my last 2 weeks with the boys, on Christmas Break. It will be very hard to have to go back to work next week. Bleh. We have spent ample time playing with puzzles and fishing, and of course saving the world with the Power Rangers :-)

Couple catch up videos. First, Kai. He's been growing up so fast lately. Here is a compilation of his learning to eat with utinsels.

He loves to play with balls, just like Kaeden did, and he's getting very good at catching and throwing.

Then today, I was cleaning, doing laundry and changing sheets, and the boys were always around to help. They LOVE to jump on the bed, and when I pulled Kai's bed up to change the sheets, I couldn't help but throw it on the floor to see what they would do. Little did I know it would be the hit maneuver of the morning!

Merry Christmas!

It's been a few months since Halloween and Kaeden's birthday, but what a fast few months! Been gearing up for Christmas in a couple ways, the ward party, the Santa Train, lots of classic Christmas movies, and of course, shopping! I was excited cuz the boys are old enough to start to understand, and with this on the heels of Kaeden's birthday, they are all about opening presents!

For the Ward Party, we had a pj night! I thought it was a great idea. Kai was sick, so he stayed home with Kevin, but Kaeden had a great time running around and even got up on stage with the Primary kids to sing! He didn't actually sing, he just sat down, but it's a good experience because in January he starts Sunbeams!

We also got to go back to the trains down in Boulder City. The Santa Train came to town! The boys had a great time riding, although there wasn't an open car this time, so looking out the window isn't as fun with no wind in your hair.

With all this as a precursor to Christmas, the boys knew who Santa was, and definately had a feel for presents. Luckily, we didn't have to get up any earlier than usual (6:30 ha ha ha) and here is their Christmas morning...

We also got a fishing game, which I can see will quickly become a Saturday morning staple!

We haven't stopped playing with the Power Rangers or the robots, and thanks to everyone who sent presents, the boys go the rounds from toy to toy, and have a great time with each one.

Merry Christmas everyone!!
