Merry Christmas!
What a great opportunity to celebrate Christ and the wonderful blessings we have because of his life. I asked my beehives to memorize "The Living Christ" So I have been frantically trying to get my sloshy noggin to memorize it as well. Some of my favorite parts are:

"He instituted the sacrament as a reminder of His great atoning sacrifice. He was arrested and condemned on spurious charges, convicted to satisfy a mob, and sentenced to die on Calvary's cross. He gave His life to atone for the sins of all mankind. His was a great vicarious gift in behalf of all who would ever live upon the earth. "

"We declare in words of solemnity that His priesthood and His Church have been restored upon the earth—"built upon the foundation of . . . apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone" (Ephesians 2:20). "

"We bear testimony, as His duly ordained Apostles—that Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His Father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son."

I made matching PJ's for everybody for Christmas Eve.

Lily had so much fun unwrapping. She helped everybody unwrap their presents. She got a little people house and a kitchen and some puppies.

Jensen of course got only trains and he was in heaven.

You know sometimes the box is more exciting than the thing that came in it:)

Charley started smiling. She is so fun to hold and look at.

I was wondering why this awsome kitchen was so cheap at Walmart. It was because it took my dad and the elder 2 hours to assemble. It should have said on the box "Monsterous amout of assembly required"
And Dave has been working on his miniature game Decent. He made this awsome 3-D game board. And he gets to play with his friends while I sit with the kids in the family room blogging and containing the kids. Merry Christmas Dave:)

Denver Zoo Lights

Dave won a year membership to the Denver Zoo at his work party. So we decided to go to the Zoo lights. It was really fun. The only unfortunate part was waiting in line for over an hour just to get in! It was a bit cold too. But we warmed up in the smelly zoo houses along the way. Grandpa was in charge of Lily. She is such a 2 year old. This is her pouting when we told her she needed to either hold hands or sit in the stroller.

Grandma had the idea of a leash and it worked remarkably well. Grandpa took off his belt and looped it around her pants.

JJ of course got to ride the train. He was a sucker for the train and the zoo map.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love thanksgiving. It is a time to see family and hang out without all the stress of Christmas. But before I get to thanksgiving I need to catch up. We went to a model train expo where it was an all things train event Jensen went crazy. He literally was running from one table to the next. I love my little train lover.

Then It was Dave's birthday Happy 27th:)

He gathered his friends and played Decent then had a LAN party. He had lots of fun happy birthday Love.
