OK---It is time to blog again...

Well, I have finally found a moment of alone time, it seems, for this whole month. I can't believe how crazy it has been, and I can't believe how long it has been since I have blogged. Sorry for not updating. I told Dave I was going to loose all of my blogger friends if I didn't post something soon. So I thought I would post a few of our Christmas pics for the Holiday season.

Christmas gift exchange at Grandma Leavitt's house. The kids all drew names around Thanksgiving time and we traded gifts on Christmas Eve. It is so much fun for the kids to shop for each other and give them their gifts. We then usually go to the Santa Clara Christmas Eve program but decided to skip it this year because my whole family is here for the wedding and we spent Christmas Eve with them.

Christmas Eve at Grandma Jensens's home. These are a few pictures of our party at Grandma Jensen's playing a little Christmas style fear factor. It was a lot of fun. Even my parents played and were good sports about it. Thanks to Jessica, Kaydee and Shelbee for the great party and good food.

It's finally DECEMBER 6th and Emilie made it to her 7th Birthday! YEA!!! She woke up really early this morning and wanted to open just one present. Her new outfit (hence the picture). The rest she will wait for later in the day to open. She chose not to have a party and wants to go shopping for her own present and out to dinner. I love her for not making me throw a party. She makes great choices already! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILIE, WE LOVE YOU!!! (if you look really close you can see that she lost her other front tooth and now she just has to ask for her 2 front teeth from santa for Christmas.)

A night at Tuachan

On Monday we went to the Nativity at Tuachan. My mom's ward did the Nativity and my sister and her fience were Mary and Joseph. It was neat to see. After the program Santa is waiting outside for all the little kids to tell him what they want for christmas. A really nice man offered to take our family picture with Santa and then he emailed it to us. It was very thoughtful of him since we didn't know who he was. (just a sad note to mention that this is our only family picture with Josh in it.)

Em's Tooth

I am so sorry for not updating my blog!!! We just don't have a whole lot going on and I am so, not creative enough to think of anything extra to blog about.

This has been a week of listening to Emilie about her loose tooth. "Augh, is it bleeding?", Mom, feel how loose it is?", "look at this", etc... and then it fell out. She can not handle anything that is even a bit bloody or if she even THINKS it will hurt She will scream...she drives us nuts, but she is so cute at the same time.

Megans Halloween Party


We had a really fun Halloween...(The yard was fininshed tonight at 6:00 which made it even better). We started the day off at Emilie's school Halloween parade and then helping with her class party. Its fun to see all the kids her age, they are so cute. After school the work began...Megan wanted to have a party for her friends because they are getting to old to Trick-or-treat. We made all kinds of treats and dipped lots of things in chocolate...Then the party began.

I took the kids trick-or-treating and Dave stayed home to chaperone and answer the door. This is really our first year of actually trick-or-treating in our own neighborhood. We have such great neighbors and friends and it made all the difference in the world.

I took the little kids to Johnson's Spook Ally which was a mistake-they are way too little and completly freaked out!
Anyways here is a few pics of the kids...I didn't have my camera with me so there aren't a lot of pictures.

I just have to say the the 80's were great and it is so funny to see our kids dressed up like we use to - and we actually thought it was cool. They even went outside, had a huge audience and danced to thriller, and ghost busters and watched Goonies...It brought back a few memories

Grandma's Halloween Party!

Kassie, Kiera and Emilie dressed in the mummy contest

All the Leavitt grandkids

Donut Limbo

It is sad when your teenage daughter dresses up like you did in highschool. We just need to get the rebok high tops and double layer the socks. Josh loves being a ref. and Dave had the best time dressing him up. Emilie is a Rodeo Princess and Matt is Spiderman who he dreams he could be daily. We are having a great Halloween week!

My first tag as a blogger

Thanks Lainee for the tag! This is kinda fun. This is my fourth folder and the forth picture. It is a picture of Megan, Autumn and Aynsley at Veyo pool this summer!...Megan will die when she sees that I put this on my blog.

So here is how it works: Go to your pictures and open the fourth folder and get the fourth picture (if possible) and post it on your blog. Tell us a little about the photo and then tag 7 others to do the same. I am tagging... Kaydee, Andi, Celeste, Annaca, Jessica, Stephanie, & Dana. Looking forward to seeing what pictures all you girls have.

School Lunch today...

Well around 9:30 this morning I got a call from Emilie's teacher to bring her a sack lunch.(We usually look to see what is for lunch and then choose wether or not to eat it or bring a lunch)So her teacher calls me and says that Emilie wants me to bring her a lunch, they are having peanut and butter and jelly sandwhiches. The TEACHER said that they are the grossest thing that they serve and usually the sandwhiches are still frozen when the kids eat them. She wouldn't eat them either. No I am not going to take it up with the lunch ladies, but, come need their nutrition if they are going to learn anything in school. They should be serving better things.

Just have to blog this...

Yesterday I went to Emilie's school class and helped out for an hour and then had school lunch with her. They served Orange Chicken and rice....that was it (no other food). She got a scoop of rice (which wasn't real rice) and then 3 pieces of chicken...She was starving. Luckily I had my own plate and she ate off of it. They did have a salad bar with carrots and applesauce and orange slices. The apple sauce was gone and the oranges were brown and the carrots were ok. I don't know how they expect the kids to get full off of this stuff...anyways to make long, gross story short...SCHOOL LUNCH SUCKS! With all the modern technology and such a kick on feeding kids healthy foods they aren't doing such a hot job of it in the Elementary schools.

Just Incase You haven't Heard.....

Yep --- can you believe it... Dave's hunting season has ended before it really began...Yesterday, he was called to serve in the Bishopbric as the first councelor. This is a wierd thing to us but we are excited for this. (I didn't really think we were old enough for this, but aren't we are all getting old?!) We are excited to get to know more families in our new ward and the bishopbric is awsome. Dave will make some great friendships there. Here is a picture of all my handsome boys just before church yesterday.

A friend of mine lives in Central and she invited us to come and pick apples in her back yard. She has so many beautiful trees and a million apples. My kids had so much fun. The trees are low enough that they could climb on them and they loved it. I don't think they really knew apples grew on trees. Funny huh... "Bear" said what are these things... and thought it was so cool that he could eat them right off the tree. Thanks Mindy and Michelle for a great day.
