Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve party with friends and we can't forget to act out the Nativity.

Christmas morning!
The kids were so excited to start opening presents.  Adam got to sleep in as long as he wanted!

Snow has finally arrived here in Michigan!

My favorite month!

This month has been my favorite so far!
Scotty has been home more often and so the kids have been able to spend a lot more Daddy time together!
 Baby Girl number four will soon join the family in a couple weeks!
And we know that we are heading for Gilbert, Az to live in six months!

The cold weather has slowly been coming in, and it doesn't stop the kids from going outside.
They came in with freezing hands when they were done painting their rocks.

Adam is getting so big now and definitely holds his
own with his older siblings! 

Our Ward Christmas party
with Santa was a hit and Cali
asked for Princess Celestia Pony
and Isaac asked for a flute.

The Primary kids sang their hearts out and when it
was all over, it was time to put the kids to bed!

Fall has been fun here in Michigan and was my favorite season every
Isaac's favorite thing to do this Fall was to gather the Fall leaves in a bag.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun with Friends at the church again and wonderful food as well!

The kids enjoyed playing with their friends and did not want to leave.
Adam still continues to suck his thumb, but we still love him a ton!

Voting day!

It's exciting we all get to vote tomorrow for the president.  We have been having fun talking as a family about it lately and Cali is way into it.  It's so cute to hear her talk about it, as she says, "It's just not fair if Obama gets to be president again, and Romney hasn't had a chance yet." Then when Cali came home from school today she told Scotty, "Dad, I have bad news. Really bad news. Obama is going to win because our class voted today and Obama won."  We will all have to just see and find out tomorrow what happens!

Cali and Isaac want to say thanks for the new school clothes this year!  Cali and Isaac both laid their clothes out on the floor.  I only got a picture of Cali.  But they were both excited, thanks Grammy Salmon!


Cali is loving Kindergarten!  She talks about her friends she has made in her class and all the fun specials she gets to go to!  I am so glad she wants to go everyday to school, and that she likes riding the bus.  She is going to do so well!

Adam is 20 months now and quickly learning everything so fast.  I can't believe how much he picks up from Cali and Isaac alone.  He imitates everything they do and say now.  He even yells back "no no" when they do it to him.  He just went to the doctor for a check up and is in the 99th percentile for height and 75th percentile for weight.  He can run pretty fast and almost catches up with his brother.  There are also lot's of games he likes to play.  Chase, hide'n'seek, baseball, catch, and soccer.  He really loves being outdoors and can't get enough food!  He is so playful and fun, and still hates getting his diaper changed.  Adam listens so well and his language has improved in the last couple months.   He can say, "where'd it go", peek a boo, please, thank you, ball, truck, car, nana, ni ni (night night), I'ick (Isaac), A'ey (Cali), Mama, Dadda, more, and his new thing is to crawl around and pant like a puppy dog.  It's his first time playing pretend.  I love that boy so much!

Happy Birthday Scotty!

Today is my favorite man's birthday!  He is now 33 years old and much wiser than yesterday.  I love him so much! We got to celebrate his birthday tonight and went out to eat at Famous Dave's and then got some Cold Stone ice cream!  It was so fun to celebrate with the kids as they are getting older and were so excited to give Daddy their gifts they made for him.  We love you Scotty!
