Pictures With Santa.

OK Last year when I took the kids to see Santa I went by my self. Oh was that an experience, So this Year I asked Brandon to come with me. Which he did, and I'm so glad he did,Cause we get in line and where waiting, When one of the ladies come by to tell us that Santa is going on his 30 min. break, and where like the 3rd one in line. So Brandon take the kids to play in the playground, While I wait in line for Santa to come back.Which was so worth it cause Jaiden was so excited to see Santa, that's all she would talk about that day. So we get up to Santa and Jaiden jumps right on his lap and Starts to tell him what she wants for Christmas, But poor Brighton, wigged out. He did not want anything to do with Santa. So all in all I'm so glad Brandon was there so he could take the pictures while I saved Brighton from the big Scary man. :)

I just had to tell this really cute story about Jaiden. The other day we where looking at some webkinz on line, (one of the gifts that we might get her this year.) So I was going threw the animals asking which one she would like. For those that don't know what they are. ( like me i had to get the low down from my sister in law) Webkins are this stuffed animals that you buy and they come with a code so that you can go on line and adopt and then you play with them on line. So we get on line to look at them ( this being my first time too) This is how it went.

Me: Jaiden what animal do you like.
Jaiden: I like this one the crocodile
Me: Any others,
Jaiden: yes like this one and this one. (Pointing to a few others,
as we Scroll down)
Jaiden: I like the penguin.
Me: Oh we can't get that one it's retired. (They don't sell anymore):(
Jaiden: It's retarded?!
Me: lol no it's not retarded it's retired.

Then Today cause she wanted to look at them again.
Jaiden: (Scrolling threw.) I like this one and this one, not that one, that one is retarded (Retired), like this one, that ones retarded too.
Me trying not to laugh as she's doing this.

This is one of the many funny things that she says, I need to start writing this down in a journal for her so that someday she can look back and read them and laugh at her self.

I'm a Bella! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are observant, diplomatic and often aim to please. You are unaware of your
attractiveness and despite being uncomfortable with any form of attention, people enjoy your company. You can be impatient, stubborn and headstrong, but you are true to your word and mature for your age, often taking care of your family and enjoying a good book over chatting with girlfriends on the phone.

I'm a huge Twilight fan, so i had to take the test. :) Wow was i surprised to find out that i was a Bella, i was thinking more like a Esma or something.

Lock and Key

There's like two major things that I keep under lock and key at our house so Jaiden can't get them. Witch are one scissors and two gum, Two things that as all know are the hairs dreaded ex. Well this Sunday While we were at Brandon's parents house for dinner. Jaiden found a pair a scissors in Lois's room, I mean she was up stairs in her bathroom, going throw draws, (witch Jaiden knows that she's not aloud to be up stairs let alone in Grandma's Lois's room.) Well to make a long story short, Brandon and I started to find her when she walks out on the landing to the stairs with her hands behind her back. (Big sign she's doing or is doing something she not allowed.)Well Brandon got to her first and showed us what was behind her back, witch where scissors. My heart just stopped, I was like oh no! Well Brandon walked her in to the bathroom and came out with a handful of hair. Witch Jaiden replied I was just combing my hair, mom. Well needless to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. She just cut a session of her hair to her shoulders, Witch still was a good seven inch's. So Half of her hair was long and the other chin to shoulder length. Well today we went to the hair salon and got it evened out. So her is the new Jaiden.

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday, I've loved it since i was little, Now I've got two reason to love it One it's Brandon's Birthday and two I get to experience the fun of dressing up with my family. I'm so glad Brandon has been game for dressing up with me and the Kids. Witch every year we come up with a theme Like or First year we did the Vampire Family, (Brandon being Dracula, me as his wife and Jaiden as or little bat.) Then the following was the Bee's ( for those Brandon was a Bee keeper and Jiden and I wear his bee's as well i was pregnant with Brighton. ) Then Last year Brandon and I picked or brains and thought of the being the Shrek characters from shrek to Fiona and donkey to puss and boots. It's been really fun,This year how ever I'm not sure if where going to do a theme? We've thought of one, but all ready Jaiden is asking to be a princess so we'll have to see. I also want to share some of my favorite pictures from over the year.

Every year we get together with some friends and carve pumpkins and make Carmel apples witch we always have fun.

Quick little Story.

Just I quick Story about Jaiden that i thought was kind of cute.

This morning I threw the kid in the shower with me, and i started to shave my legs. Jaiden asked if she could have some shaving cream as well, so thinking that she would place it on her belly like soap i said yes, and gave her some. (i didn't see any harm in it) Well she went on to place her foot like mine up on the bath tub ledge and put the shave cream from hip to foot like she had say me do. Once finished she lifted her hand asking for the shaver. Witch i had to laugh cause she just knew in her little mind that she was going to get the razor. (but of course i did give it too her) :) I just though it was to cute so i had to share.

P.S. By the way I haven't posted any pictures lately is because, we no longer have our camera, we took it back and got a camcorder, cause now we can record and take still pic. but the down side is that it did not come with a cord to conceit to the computer so we've got to find one so as soon as we do, I'll start to post pic again.

So it's been awhile i know, I;m really bad at this blog thing. So i was just going to up date everyone. First My baby is no longer a baby :..( That's right Brighton turn one back on the sixth of march. And if that wasn't enough, he got his first tooth and started to walk a week before his birthday. Oh why do they have to grow up soo fast. :( I wish i could keep them small and cute for ever. but sadly they've got to grow up. boo-hoo... Well the other thing is my daughter Jaiden is going to be turning three, oh my gosh i just can't believe it. It really just flies by, again i wish i could keep them small. I'll admit that the terrible two where hard but i can kind of see the light at the end of the tunnel, yes she'll have her moments but then later she realizes that what she did was a no no, and she came back to me and tell me, "mom I'm sooo sorry for getting out of bed and making soup. " ( this was at ten at night, two hours after we had put her to bed, and ever night check on the kids before bed, when i walked down stairs and find Jaiden, in the bath room with toilet paper and corn starch as well these fish that color the bath water, all in my toilet. Yes i was very shocked to find her up let alone in the bathroom.) well like i said the next morning she told me that she was sorry for trying to make soup. And how after that heart filled apology could i be mad at her. It totally malted my heart. her news thing is that she'll come up to you and say she has a secrete, then she whispers oh so quite in your ear " I love with all my heart. or i love millions, and my fav i love you so much."

I'm a supermom! ;)

Take this test!
You're a smart, social person who probably likes to have deep conversations, read books and magazines, and have a little think time to yourself. That's why we're not surprised that when it comes to motherhood, your super strength lies in your ability to connect with your kids.

Whether you're listening to them talk about their favorite music, sharing funny memories from the past with them, or mapping out your next family adventure together, you're a mega-involved mama who really likes to know everything that's going on in your children's lives. After all, if they keep you up-to-date on the small stuff, they're probably more likely to open up when they need help with the bigger decisions in their future, too, right? Not only that, but you know that by teaching them to be articulate and engaged conversationalists, you're giving them good social skills that will pay off for the rest of their lives. Nice work!

Los Vegas Babe!

I know it's been awhile since new years but I'm a little behind. Well Brandon and I went to Vegas For New years. It was so fun, we meet one of Brandon's missionary buddy and his wife there. (Tucker and Nichole Shupe) Well the first day we got there, there was a UFC fight going on. Brandon loves the UFC Fights. So needless to say he was very excited, well we went to the casino that the fight was at, and we where just seating and waiting to see if we could see anyone when Brandon and i thought we would just walk back stage (like we owned the Place) :) Well as we do out walks St- Pierre then Dean Lister, it was really cool, Brandon was very excited.

Well the next day we went to the mall and i found the cuties snow boots for Jaiden, i so wanted to get them for her but they were like 35.00 and kids just grow out of shoes so fast, plus I knew I could get them for alot cheaper in AZ, (since it snows like crazy here.) :) In witch I did on line for 10.00 dollars, but she really doesn't need snow boots, so i went for some really cute water shoes, more piratical, :)
Well that night i thought i was feeling lucky and if you know me i love to gamble, not stupidly though, like my limit was 20.00 dollars, so i started with 20, and won 90. 00 dollars at black jack and yes i walked away with it, so that was kind of fun. Well getting on to the new years part holy cow was that crazy I've never in my whole life had so much beer and alcohol spilt on me (yuck!) plus it was like a huge moss pit, we had gone out side to see the fire works but then we started to see all the crazy people, so we decided to turn around and go back, need less to say we never made it back till after midnight, even then we had to walk another mile just to get to our hotel, although i probably won't do new years in veges, again i had a blast. It was fun spending time with just Brandon, ( although i did miss Jaiden and Brighton like crazy.) Brandon always makes fun of me cause i have to call his mom or my mom in this case like fifty times a day. :) Well that was our Las Vegas trip, sorry it took so long to post.
