{Brittany's Senior Pics}

I had to post these picture of my sister Brittany..... Senior pictures have come a long ways, right?? She looks so pretty in all of these, don't you think?


Our December has flown by - as I'm sure it has for most of you as well! One more week until Christmas....I wish time would slow down because I am not ready for this month to be over! Especially since I have finals on Saturday...wish me luck!!

Last week I went with Rhett and Ethan to the IMAX at Arizona Mills. Even though they don't look thrilled, we had fun watching the movie with sharks and sea creatures!

Afterwards we went and ate at The Rainforest Cafe. The best part of course was the Lava Mud and Worms they boys chose for desert...yum!
Tonight was Rhett's Holiday Concert! All the 1st graders dressed up and sang Christmas songs. (Rhett's still working on finding a "natural" smile).

He's made some great friends this year....

The next stop was the Ward Christmas party. Kade loved the cupcakes :o)

Kade's best bud Brayden was there so of course they ran around together, trying to escape from Mom!

Santa was there, even if you can't see him under the boys! Rhett would like a black whistle, Ethan wants a transformer, and Kade wants a cow to supply his daily milk demands.

This last Santa picture is a picture of a picture....I couldn't get my scanner going tonight. The boys also got to see Santa last week when he came to Rhett's school.

I hope everyone is having a great December.....XOXO! -Brooke

{Pillow Hurdles}

Around here with 3 boys things can get crazy. Rhett and Ethan had an idea to stack pillows and then run and jump over them. They wanted me to take some "cool pictures".




Ethan (I think he may have a future with hurdles, check out that form)

Even little Kade wanted in on the action.

He didn't like it when Ethan stole his turn....look at that look he's giving!

{The Polar Express}

A few months ago my Uncle Jon (only a few years older than me) called to see if we'd want to go on the Polar Express with their family. We have never been, but thought it would be a fun way to kick off December! We had so much fun!

I picked up Rhett a little early from school. His teacher told me he told his class "Bye! I'm going to the North Pole!" Our kids still believe in Santa and were so excited that they were going on a train to meet him. We met Jon's family in Flagstaff for dinner at Cracker Barrel. Then we went 30 more miles over to Williams, to board the Polar Express.

We were all bundled up....brrr it was cold outside!

Ethan and Hayden had too much fun together!! They enjoyed the hot cocoa and cookies served on the train.

My three cute boys in their PJ' excited to see Santa!

Kade wanted Rhett or Ethan to hold him - not Mom or Dad :O)

Here's Dawniel and Brynn. She is a couple of months older than Kade. Is she not the cutest thing ever??

We are almost to the North Pole...they are anxiously looking out the window!

Santa came and brought bells for all the children. Very LOUD and annoying bells!

At the end of our journey.......the end!
*PS please ignore my scary red eyes. This last week I have been getting over an eye infection / allergic reaction to eye medication / other eye infection. YUCK!
