Catching up!

Wow where did the last two weeks go. I need to play some serious catch up.
I hope everyone's wishes came true in this Christmas season, but mostly I hope everyone enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
Here is what we have been up to the last couple of weeks....warning picture overload.
Dylan took this little Santa hat off of one of their stuffed animals and they both have had so much fun wearing this little Santa beanie. Tyson's turn and he usually hates hats, but for some reason liked this one.
Tyson's first time playing in the snow for real...last year he was to tiny.
Dylan has had so much fun in the snow, from driving trucks to digging a snow cave. Sorry didn't get a picture of the snow cave.
Santa Kitty
(oh the things we do to our kitty)
Christmas Eve-The Christmas jamas.
(Shhh don't tell Tyson, his were Dylan's from last year. He doesn't know any different.)
Christmas Morning-The Loot
Train table from Santa, they both loved it. Dylan spent every waking moment playing with it.
Dylan asked Santa for a sled.
The stocking.

Improvising, we haven't made it out to the forest to find a good sled hill, so Marty made due with the quad in the backyard. Dylan loved it.
Dancing with the Santa one last time before he gets put away for the season.
Playing under the tree one more time.
We had such a fun Christmas, it was so nice to just play with our toys and watch movies and just enjoy each other. The boys had such a fun day, it was so fun to see the excitment in their eyes. When Dylan went to bed Christmas night he asked me if Santa was coming tomorrow. Don't think so.
We hope everyone has a happy, safe, and healthy New Year!

Precious Gifts

We have had a crazy couple of weeks and I have neglected my blog. I got a new camera and I am so excited about it. Here are a few pics from the new camera.
Given a little love.
One of the many faces of Tyson, he looks like this half of the day.
Look at those eyes.
Funny kid
Winter Wonderland
Marty says this is Bear in all his glory. He is such a cute dog.
Yes that is my cat in my tree.
This is how Dylan plugs his ears since he got his cast on.
Pushing snow
Tyson's first taste of the snow.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season. We have had so much fun with Dylan this year. He is just so excited about Christmas, he was afraid of Santa but everyday he asks where Santa is. I tell him that he is at the North Pole making toys. He loves the Christmas lights, and reading about Baby Jesus. The kids have made the season so much more enjoyable and fun. I love my kiddos.


When we were in Tempe last week we took the boys to the z00, enjoy the pics.

Before the zAlign Centeroo we grabbed some lunch, this Christmas tree was in the restaurant. When we walked in the door Dylan saw it and yells at the top of his lungs, "Look Christmas."
After we ate Dylan disappeared for a sec and I turn around and see this. I thought he was licking the ball, so I told him to stop because he puts his mouth on everything in public. He wasn't licking it, he was looking at his tongue in the reflection.
This is so cute. They are looking at the fish in the pond just inside the zoo entrance. Dylan thought Tyson was going to jump in the water.
Dylan was totally obessed with seeing the rinos, that is all he talked about the whole time and the rinos were at the end. By the time we got to see them he was so done with the zoo.
Can anyone say pink eye!
Tyson and I at the giraffes.

Crazy thing happened!

What a crazy week. Tyson is a horrible teether, he was cutting 6 teeth at once and screamed for a week. Poor baby, he is much happier now. Then Dylan got the stomach flu, first time ever. I didn't much like that experience. He kept telling me, "I just want my belly to feel better." Break my heart. He is all better and happy also, his appetite has increased dramatically since then. We then had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our friends Jeron and Anne Hatch and their two boys Thomas and Hyrum. We thought we were going to have a nice relaxing weekend at home with each other and the craziest thing happened, we put the boys to bed like normal, about 30 minutes later I hear Dylan screaming his head off. I ran in their room to check on him and he was holding his arm. He likes to climb into bed with Tyson sometimes and I guess he was climbing out of the crib and slipped and fell on his arm. We kept him up for a while to watch him and he just kept crying and crying, he eventually fell to sleep and then woke up a few hours later complaining about his arm and crying. We stayed up pretty much the rest of the night and Marty took him to the ER on Saturday morning. It was broke, they called it a green break. They spent half of the day at the ER and Dylan came home with a nice splint. He took a nap and when he woke up he was ready for it to come off. He was pretty happy on Monday when they took it off and then not happy when he got his new hard cast on. He has to have it taken off one more time to make sure it is healing straight. Then he will wear a cast for about 6 weeks. I thought we would have a few more years before our ER visits started. Then after all of that I got the stomach flu, can I just tell you how much I hate that feeling. Enjoy the pics.
The kiddos getting ready to stuff their faces on Thanksgiving dinner.

Tyson now folds his arms for prays and last night started saying amen.
Hair cut night. Dylan sporting his underwear and the nice back over his arm, so hair wouldn't get in the splint.

Tyson, my neice Macie and Dylan, we made these cute turkey hats, they were a little late but what a fun project.
