Our Christmas day starts out like this: In the Morning we open all the gifts from Santa, and from the family.We also have Cinnamon rolls, hot chocolate, orange juice for a quick breakfast so we have plenty of time to play with our new toys! Then we go to Grandma Bott's house and open presents from them and the family and exchange gifts. Grandma Bott makes a Christmas lunch. We then go to Nana and Papa's house to open presents from them that night, and have another Christmas dinner there.

I couldn't post all my picutres, but here are some of them!

We didn't get much picutres, but here are the ones we did get!

For the Weeks Family Traditions it starts on Chirstmas Eve Night. We start the night by having sub-sandwiches, chips, salads and desserts. We then open gifts from our Secret Santa's ( Although it is not much of a secret when you have such a small family, but it is still fun!) We Also get to open presents from Tyler's Grandparents, and Nana and Papa give the Grandkids Christmas Jammie's to wear to bed! This Year Kayden had it rough though he had the stomach flu Christmas eve.

Men at Work

We Had to get the house ready for a Christmas Open House, and so we put all the men to work! Kayden made ornaments for the Christmas Tree, and then hung them. Tyler and his dad painted the door, and Landen just looked like he was working, but he was really just playing. Xander was at school so he didn't get a job to do.

Ward Christmas Party


Kayden's 5th Birthday

We have a Birthday dinner for each kid, and Kayden choose to have Sandwiches which was a very easy dinner! He also choose to have a Tractor cake which he was very excited to see! That morning I had to go to the store, and the conversation with dad went like this:
Kayden: I know where mom went
Dad: Where?
Kayden: She went to get my Birthday Cake!
Dad: No she didn't
Kayden: Yes She did!
Little did Kayden know that Nana and Papa had gotten it the night before all this and it was out in the garage so that he wouldn't see it so later that night Kayden and mom's conversation went like this
Mom: Kayden what are we going to do...We forgot your cake
Kayden: It's OK mom
That was the sweetest thing, and I was happy to have that cake in the garage, because it wasn't a big deal to have a cake, but he was sure surprised when we brought that cake out!


Good & Bad NEWS!

>> Sunday, December 2, 2007

UPDATE: Good News: We have received Landens results from the MRI, and they have come back normal and so he doesn't have Cerebral Palsy which is a relief in someways. Bad News: The Doctor from Primary Children's Hospital has diagnosed him with Encephalopathy which is pretty much a brain disorder, but they don't know which one yet. He said that 50% of children you are able to see defects from the MRI, and the other 50% it gets harder, and you guessed it we are in that 50%. So right now we are getting him to Early Interventions hoping that we are able to help things with occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy before we try the medication. We go back to the doctor in three months to see what are options are at that time, but for now we are just doing the early interventions to see if we can make any progress there!


Tree House

This month for Kayden's Preschool field trip we went to the Tree House in Ogden. We had never been before, and so it was an adventure for us. They had so many different things you could do. If your child loves to pretend and dress up than this is a GREAT place each part is themed and you can dress up in each section. Here are some pictures of our adventure to the Tree House!


Graham Cracker

Last week I had hurt my neck, and it was stiff and sore. Anyways to make a long story short I had spent a week going to the Chiropractor, and had to go this particular morning in which I brought Kayden with me. We had pulled up and he had said mom are we at the GRAHAM CRACKERS, and me and Deanna busted out laughing, and then explained that it was chiropractor. Later that week I asked Kayden where does mom go when she has a hurt neck and once again he proudly answered GRAHAM CRACKER!

Santa can go just about anywhere...if you don't believe me then you can ask three little boys that have seen him at the mall, and today he was at their Dad's work. (which got them all excitied) They got to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Kayden wanted a Transformer, and Xander was just being stubborn you can tell by the picture, and Landen wasn't sure what to think!


Gobble Gobble

Getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner. The boys were delighted to help with dinner. I would have taken pictures of us eating, but I was too busy eating :) Although we had a great Thanksgiving. Papa fried a turkey in his fryer, and Nana made pumpkin pies, noodles, fruit salad, stuffing, deviled eggs, green been casserole, broccoli and cauliflower. It was all so yummy!


Great Great Grandma

Thanksgiving we got to spend some time with our Great Great Grandma on mom's side. She will turn 101 in January, and was in good spirits. We had a GREAT thanksgiving dinner with the family. Although it is hard to get three little boys to all look at the camera and smile at the same time. We will have more pictures to come!

Take One of Birthdays

This year Kayden got to have his own party with his friends. In previous years we have just done family parties so we decided to make an exception. Nana and Papa this year for his Birthday paid to have it at the Peak which was a GREAT experience (Thank you Nana and Papa) He had Friends from school, family, and friends of the family. Some you may be thinking that isn't his Birthday in December...well it is, but we had a lot going on, and had to throw it early so that everyone could attend that Kayden wanted to invite. Thanks everyone for the presents, and coming to the party!

It was a beautiful day with blue skies and warm air. We decided that we better get all that we can out of the warm weather we have been having before it gets to cold. A few weeks before I was upset because when we went up the canyon to take pictures all the leaves were pretty much gone and what was left on the ground was a big sloppy mess from the rain before. So much to my surprise when we got to the park someone had raked up a bunch of leaves to play in. Well with my luck my camera was sitting at home on the counter (good place for it huh?) So I decided that I should take advantaged of all the leaves, and so with all the crying and grumbling we got back in the car to get the camera. here were the results!

landen loves to play peek-a-boo! We are always saying where is the baby (off of Ice age), and he puts his hands over his eyes, hides under a blanket or behind anything he can get behind. He will then poke his head out with a BIG smile, and then the game starts all over again. Sometimes me and Tyler forget to say "Where's the baby" and he will continue to hide, and then we will hear landen say "BABY" and then he will pop out and smile like the game goes on!He has started talking and saying so much. He says peek-a-boo, today's conversation went a little like this
mom: Love ya
Landen: Love ya
Mom: Love ya too
Landen: too!


Off we go a haunting
