Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Last night we had our ward Christmas party dinner, and the boys got to meet Santa Clause.  Noah was so excited, he didn't even know what to say to him.  We kept telling him to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas and all he could do was grin.  He even mentioned the "party with Santa" in his prayer last night. :)

Ammon on the other hand, was not impressed!! He was ok standing near santa, but don't you dare try to put him in his lap!!

This morning we woke up to snow!  I opened up the window and it was white everywhere!! Noah and Ammon couldn't keep themselves out of the window.  I brought some snow inside for them to play with:

Its going to be a LONG December

As time is going by, I am getting more and more behind on my blog, and I am finding it hard to find things to write about!!  With the stress of court coming up on the 14th for Noah it seems my mind is consumed with one thing!

We did get around to putting up a tree and some Christmas decorations.  Noah is excited, he asks me everyday when the "Christmas Guy" is coming.  My mom gave us an advent calendar with little goodies everyday until Christmas for the boys, and it is the only thing he can think of, he asks me at least 10 times a day if he can have whatever is in the next day's pocket.  Ammon seems to have a different excitement than Noah, he wants to tear EVERYTHING apart.  I am constantly chasing him away from the Christmas tree while he tries to pull off every ornament he can, smack them together, pull the tinsel down and destroy the nativity.  He doesn't take "no" for an answer nowadays, and all these extra fun things to get into lately make it all the worse. :P

Mike got his first cat of the season, the first day he checked his traps, on the very first trap.  He has been using all his will power to hold out until Friday to check them again, he is certain he has more cats.  Its funny to watch him, because it is like watching a kid waiting to open his Christmas presents. :)

Other than that there isn't much to report on, just trying to survive day to day, and figure out how to balance my life with kids, babysitting, primary and scouts!!
