Hemostats=chip clip

You know it's a weird day
you start using hemostats as chip clips.
I seriously did this the other day...
on purpose.
I even said out loud
Yes really.

On the other hand,
where did all of the chip clips
disappear to?
Cheese louise!

Merry Christmas from Zayden!

We aren't visiting family this Christmas (ew,Grinches!), so I will shower my fam with pictures of the Little Man since you don't get to see him in his cute outfit.(plus my mom likes to use my blog as her brag book at work). We went to my mom's ward last Sunday and everyone loved him. All he wanted to do was stand up and smile at all the ladies behind him. He's getting a little temper...I tell him I'll give him spankins, but my threats have not worked yet...I will include a picture of one of his arched back moments.

Enjoy the chubby cheeked monster.....and Merry Christmas!

I love people watching. I could do it for long as I have Depends on. People are hilarious. The other day I saw a guy cross country skiing on the SIDEWALK. Yeah. The side walk that was pure ice with some patches of dry cement poking through......was he for real? I almost wrecked because I had to do a quadruple take to make sure my eyes were not fooling me. He was having the hardest time too. It was the classic one step forward two steps back routine. I laughed and wished I had someone in the passenger seat to be a witness such humor.

We got our Christmas tree up and decorated. I am slightly disappointed in it this didn't turn out as magnificent as I had dreamed. Once again, Dan tried to put tinsel on it while my back was turned. I'm not a fan of tinsel and Dan cannot believe his ears when I tell him that. We're not in 1980 anymore honey buns! Here's the ironic thing about it.....I bought a little tree last year for Dan to put all of his ornaments on....he has family guy ornaments, and Phoenix Suns stuff, and Superman crap (crap? did I say that out loud?) that he likes to put on our big tree. Then he tops it off with tinsel. Basically all of my hard work of coordinating colors and schemes is completely ruined by his lovely, un-matching stuff. So I thought having his own personal tree would somehow fix all of my problems. It didn't. He hates it. In fact, he looked at it and said "that looks stupid." Oh, and to top it all off....he didn't even put tinsel on his tree! What?! I'm so confused. Now all the sudden I am the one concerned that we have no tinsel on the freakin' tree! He's at work the time he gets home tomorrow morning there will be tinsel lovingly wrapped around his tree. I refuse to be tinsel-less!

Have you heard the new David Archuleta Christmas From the Heart CD? Its great! We bought it last night and listened to it in the car all the way home. Then Dan told me he could "out sing David." I died laughing.

Here's the little monster, growing up oh so fast. (I realize he's in a pink's a hand-me-down from little Miss Ady.)

Speaking of the Littly she is, milking a fake cow...and talking to a fake sheep.

Hope your Christmas is Magical!

We drove to Arizona for Thanksgiving this year....yes, I said DROVE. Eleven hours in a car is not awesome. We made it, but I don't plan on making this a yearly tradition. Flying is heavenly, and I like heavenly things. We actually hardly took any pictures this year. We were there for 5 days and only came home with two pictures. In our defense we really only saw Dan's whole family once for a couple of hours on Thanksgiving Day.
Dan and McKenna. We were outside helping Joey hang up lights.

Matt has an awesome air soft gun. I could do some damage with that thing!

My favorite picture of Dan. Everyone else in the picture is smiling nicely.....then there's Dan.
(bad picture quality...I was taking a picture of a picture.)

We saw the END of a rainbow!! It was so cool! Although, there was no gold...and no leprechaun.

While we were in Arizona, Josh, Michelle, and Ady came to see my mom in Utah. I will have to post pictures of their happenings another day. I talked to Ady on the phone while we were traveling home and she asked "Aunt Julie, are you coming home from Arizona's house?" lol, the innocent mind of a three year old.
Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
