Our Annual Griswold Experience....

We usually go get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, but with my parents temple schedule we had to go on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving this year!

This truly is one of my favorite traditions...

I love how excited the kids are...

I love listening to my parents argue about my mom having to have the PERFECT Christmas tree:)...

I missed eating left over turkey and ham sandwiches this year, but the sliced ham and turkey were delicious...

I love spending time with my family...


Our Family (minus Tristen and Paul...who knows where they were:) with our tree
'HEY GRISWOLD...Where you gonna stick a tree that size?'

I've decided it's never a good thing with Brandon and Nicholas get together...they ALWAYS seem to find some way to entertain themselves!!
They made a sled out of a shovel!!

Me and my Clark Griswold

Hope everyone had a GREAT THANKSGIVING!!!

Oh Michael!!!

This boy makes me laugh...

A couple weeks ago I was on the way home from Snowflake from taking kids to the dentist when I recieved a phone call from Michael who was hysterical! This was our converstion...

Michael...'MOM!! I was fluda fluda fla fla, and fluda fluda fla fla, and then fluda fla fla fla fla fla!!'
(if any of you have ever heard Michael when he is trying to tell you something, especially when he knows he's gonna be in trouble, you will understand that:)

Me...'Michael...I can't understand you.'

Michael...'MOM!!....(then he repeated the above)

Me...'Michael!! I don't understand martian...please slow down and speak clearly!!'

Michael...'Mom!!...I was jump roping at school and I didn't notice my glasses flew off my face and now I can't find them!!!'

My first reaction was to get mad at him for once again losing his glasses...then I realized what he said! Did he seriously just tell me he DIDN'T notice his glasses fly off his face?!! Then I started laughing!! Needless to was a true story. One of the teachers found them the next morning almost in the parking lot!!

Gotta LOVE this kid!!!

A BIG Day For the Cousins!

Last Saturday, October 30th, was a big day for our family. Chace went through the temple that morning in preparation for his mission, and 4 of the little cousins were baptized that afternoon.

Amelia turned 8 on October 5th, but with 3 of her cousins turning 8 the same month we decided to wait so they could all do it together. It was a great meeting, with great talks, and lots of family and friends.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Millie Bean and congrats on your baptism! We are SO proud of you and are so grateful we have the opportunity to be your earthly parents!! We love you!!

Me, Amelia, & Brandon

Amelia, Tessa, Nate, & Kimball...the 4 baptizees

The four cousins all clean and perfect!!
