We had our Christmas party this year at our church. It turned out quite lovely! My sister Shauna even braved it with pneumonia, what a trooper!
My Mom gave us some really nice, BIG gifts this year. Unfortunately our hockey table was broke and they didn't have ANY in stock...boo! So we ended up ordering a climber dome for outside instead. Which the kids will LOVE when it warms up! I told the kids to smile liked they loved me and I just LOVE Quinn and Addi's face! I do feel very loved...but no so much by my own, he, he!!!
The little kids played unwrap the candy bar with snow gloves game and the older kids/ adults exchanged white elephant gifts.
Carter got one.
And Addi the other one...she is just a little proud!
We finally gave in and got an Elf of the Shelf doll. It has been a ton of fun for us this year. His name is Buddy although I often call him Elfie or Alfie (Buddy doesn't stick for some reason for me) so he is an elf of many names! Here he is on his best pose yet...on a date with Bry's beautiful barbie!!!
We're Ben and Trisha we were married June 16, 2004. We have 5 wonderful children, Logan, Brylee, Boston, Carter and Brendan. Ben works for his Dad as a Plumber and I get the joy of being a stay-at-home Mom. So welcome to our blog, I hope you enjoy a little peak into our crazy life!
"If you are still in the process of raising children...be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show upon almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys, scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon & that you will-to your surprise-miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S. Monson
