Christmas 2011

Each holiday gets more exciting. When I was young I LOVED CHRISTMAS... I would loose sleep over it ha. I couldn't wait to see what I got.. Its funny cause now I could care less what I get and I am excited to see my kids expressions. Ady wanted a pink drum.. I know kind of silly but it was what she wanted. We were very spoiled this year. She got her pink drum she asked for a Fisher price car, a Tricycle, kitchen set, a art desk, doctor kit, and some clothes. I know she got a lot but a couple of those were from yard sales.. Like the Tricycle and Car. A little spray paint makes it look brand new . Drakers got lots of toys and clothes. I got a video camera a new bed spread and a knife set. And I bought Sam a new bow. And by I , I mean I bought with his money :).We also got some food storage from my parents and sams aunt and Uncle. This Christmas was very enjoyable. We spent it with my parents. On Christmas eve we ate dinner and did white elephant. We also did a Nativity scene and read from the scriptures. It has been fun trying to teach Ady about Mary and Baby Jesus... We have been very blessed this year. After Christmas we went to St. David and spent a few days with Sam's family.. We enjoyed Christmas very much this year.
I am sad i didnt take more pictures. But I was playing with my video camera I got lots of video but not many pictures sorry...

Halloween 2011

Halloween this year was fun!! Ady was Little Miss Muffet and Barney and Drake was a fire man. Ady was Miss Muffet for the ward Halloween Party and Barney for Trick or Treating. For Halloween we went over to Laurie and Brads and had BBQ on three drive way and passed out candy. We had to dress up with stuff we already had in our closet. I am sad Sam had school that night so he didnt get to enjoy the fun. My mama won the costume award... She put on my dad's wrestling uniform from High school ha.

This isnt halloween but I forgot to add it to the other one. This is drake Getting his 2nd Hair cut

Sam had to dress up as an old guy at work So we practiced..

Silly girl

This is a video of her "READING". I love it when she memorizes a story then repeats it. She was sitting in her room reading this one day so I made her do it again for me.When she is suppose to be taking a nap I always see her in the video monitor playing and reading stories to herself. Its so funny. One day I will sneak a video.
This little girl makes us laugh...I am going to write down some of the funny stuff she has said just for my sake so I wont forget them.
*The other day we were in the store. She went and grabbed a box of cookies off the shelf and said. Oh gosh that's 20 pounds.... Where in the world does she know about pounds?
*She was playing in the bathroom and I went into check on her and she was opening my tampons... (Me) What do you think your doing? (Ady) Look mommy's Crayons.
*She call boobies Doebies. I was feeding Drake and she yelled Drakers don't bite mamma's Doebies.
*Sam and I were sitting on the couch watching a movie and we already put Ady down for bed. She came out over and over. One of the times she came out She came and gets in 0ur face and says "Look it me. Its Ady... No really!!
*I was getting in Drakes closet to get some more diapers out. She walks in and says in her squeaky little voice.. "Mommy what you freakin doing?" She picks up on every word no matter where she hears it.
*We were sitting in church one day and she kept moving around. (Me) What are you doin? (Ady) Yells " I have a wedgie!
* Every time I ask her to do something she says "um yeah sure".
*She call's me Rach or Rachel. She call's sam Babe or Samuel and she call's Drake Draker's or Goober bunny.
*We were driving to Costco and we were in the turning lane. The people weren't turning and Sam said something like come on turn. Ady goes Dad Be patient.
* She was jumping off the back of the couch I look at her and she says to me. I'm Nuts ill be careful.
*Whenever i'm getting dressed she says to me Okay mom keep your pannies dry.
That is only like half of it. This girl is full of it.

Ady has a little bit of what you call a Barney Obsession!!! She had a dream come true. We took her to see and meet barney. She enjoyed every second of it. She was in shock when she met him. She couldnt take her eyes off him. It was a lot of fun. After it was all over she goes OH WOW THAT WAS FUN.

Best Buds

These 2 have been buds from the moment Drake was born whether he likes it or not. She doesn't really give him much of a choice. She is a good big sister but she wants to take and do everything with him. I actually think it is really cute. The other day I was getting ready to go somewhere and I put Drake in his car seat in my room. I went into the other room to get everything else packed up. Ady broke down into tears saying, "MOM dont forget Drakers". She kept repeating herself crying thinking im really going to leave him. She is always asking to hold him and play with him. She was jumping on the bed and said I want Drakers to jump with me. I was trying to explain to her that he was to small to jump but she wouldnt have that. She still insisted on him jumping with her. So I just held him lifting him up and down like he was jumping. And she goes Ah i love this. This is fun!!! I am so glad she loves him so much. And im glad that he is such a good baby and deals with it. Lots of pictures... Enjoy
