2. Go to the fourth folder
3.Open the fourth picture
4. Post the picture on your blog and write about it.

Sounds very easy and straightforward. So here it is: It's not surprising that the 4th picture would be one of Jilly. It was taken on my birthday (July 29th). I was trying to take a picture of her with her new earrings for my sister - but every time she smiled her chubby cheeks would cover them up. LOL

Family Pictures

So, my friend Sarah took our family pictures. I LOVE THEM!!! They are so awesome. Greg posted them to his Flickr account:

They are so great! She did such a good job!

The Decorated Tree

So the kids FINALLY convinced me that we should decorate our tree. This would be the first year that I was brave enough to allow them to put the ornaments on themselves. Usually I just do it while they are at school or gone somewhere so I didn't need to worry. This year I let them help. Actually they did everything except one ornament (my special bird) and the angel on the top. And believe it or not I didn't have to do too much fixing. Actually all I had to move was some of them that were actually sitting on the floor and some that had three or four per branch. It's fun. It is a fun tree. I did realize that the girls don't have very many ornaments that are theirs. I may need to fix that. Maybe we will start something new this year. We will see what I come up with. The final product:

The most beautiful baby ever

Sooo....what does it feel like to be the parents of the most amazingly beautiful baby ever you ask???? It is spectacular!!

My friend Sarah took family pictures for us for Christmas. This is the only one I have gotten so far but isn't she amazing??

Sanchez Claus

Here in Arizona we like to visit with Sanchez Claus. Sometimes he is also referred to as Kris Gringo. He's the guy you consult with and ask for presents for Christmas.

You know the guy, right?!

Danny Lost his tooth

Danny lost his first tooth today!! We have been dealing with a bit of a "snaggletooth" (as my sister kept calling him) for quite a few days now. Every time I would touch it he would screamand cry. This morning he crawled into bed with me and when we were ready to get up he rolled over and said "hey - my tooth fell out". And that was it. He is excited for the tooth fairy to come tonight.

We were supposed to be in San Diego today for Brandee's wedding - I'm still soo sad we weren't able to go. Jilly and I were both diagnosed with pneumonia the other day. Blech!! I was more worried about her. When we went to the Urgent Care my mom went with us and they made them check me out also, and my nasty cough. I guess it is a good thing they did. I probably would have never gone in to be checked. So, since Greg had taken the day off we decided to put up the Christmas Tree.

After school, we are going to get the kids and go see Santa and then they can come home and deco…

November Catch-up

I missed a few things in the last few weeks so I thought I would just do one entry and briefly tell you all about them!

For those of you who don't know I am the Webelos Scout Leader. That means I am the( as Greg likes to call me) Den Mother, for the 10 year old boys. I was very afraid to accept this calling - but I am having so much fun!! It has been very surprising! We went to the Casa Grande Ruins and had a man come up to us. He served in the military (he was wearing his dog tags and a military hat). He came up to Becky (my assistant) and I and thanked us for all we were doing to help raise responsible and good boys to become good and strong adults. Even now I get a bit choked up as I think 'NO, thank you for all you do for us!!'

Hunter is a Woolf (a wolf but I spell it my way!!) but he is almost done achieving all of his goals. I think he will receive his Wolf at the Pack Meeting in December.

Soccer finished for the boys on the 22nd. They had an awards ceremony and each bo…
