Merry Christmas!! We had a fabulous Christmas. The girls are at a fun age everything is so magical and such a surprise. I love the wonder that kids have. Its fun to just watch them be so overwhelmed with everything that they received. They had the elves visit for the 12 days and every morning they could not wait to check their sock to see what they got. Genna would say some of the cutest things..."oh that is just what I wanted." "oh my gosh, I'm going to have to thank Santa and the elves, oh my gosh." She was so cute. They both loved Christmas morning and couldn't get enough of everything they got. I think for me Christmas is much more fun when you have little ones. I think at times I was more excited than they were. I couldn't sleep Christmas eve. I'll post pics and maybe a video later if its not too long. We also went to Temple Square and that was a fun night. We rode Trax into downtown and that was the highlight for the girls. We got to the lights and walked around for about a half hour and got back on the train. I had to laugh because the majority of our night was spent on Trax. It took about 45 min. each way. When we got back to Sandy we ate at Five Guys. I would reccommend that to anyone! Fabulous hamburgers! We had a really good time.
And surprise to all who don't know we are pregnant! I'm so excited! Even though we were trying and Andrew knew it was coming it always takes him a bit longer to not be shocked and be excited. But he is excited too! We are only 7 weeks and my first doctors appt is tomorrow. I haven't been too sick but most days I'm nauseated all day. Sometimes I wish I could just throw up and move on but instead I walk around with an upset stomach all day. But I'm not going to complain, I signed up for this and it could be A LOT worse. I've already had cravings....OJ, hamburgers, sausage, bacon.... I hope all had a fabulous Christmas and you have a great New Year!!

We decided to take the rhino out and have some fun considering it has been so warm lately. We got all ready and drove all the way up American Fork Canyon just to be told the trails were closed for winter. Whoops. We weren't ready to go home and the girls were itching to go for a ride so we drove all the way out to Five Mile Pass. We had so much fun. The girls absolutely love it. They giggle the whole time. Genna kept yelling to Andrew "Daddy we are winning!" Not quite sure why she kept saying that but it was cute. We stopped for a bit and threw rocks and had a potty break. Andrew took a really funny picture of my backside while I was holding Genna as she was going potty with her bare bum hanging out. I almost posted it but I didn't want my 3 year olds bum on the internet. I know... over protective mom. We messed around for awhile and we went down in a ravine when we started to go up we had a hard time going up over a rock. Andrew had to get out while I acted like I knew what I was doing as he pushed and I gunned it. When we would move back I could swear that we were going to roll. I was pretty nervous. Andrew brought his pellet gun and the girls LOVED shooting it. All in all we had a great day.

Sorry to all who look at my blog and never see anything new. Life is crazy...I know life is crazy for all but I have a problem when I get on to blog its not a quick entry it ends up being two hours because I get so intrigued by everyone else's blog that I can't stop reading. We are doing great! Andrew is finally home from Chicago and he had a very successful summer. I am so proud of his dedication and hard work. It paid off this year! We had a great Halloween, Kami was in love with it.. she said "Mommy Halloween is my favorite holiday." They didn't want to stop trick or treating even when it was raining. Both girls are celebrating their birthdays this week and I cannot believe that Kami is 4 and Genna is 3. Its unreal. Kami is no longer a baby and even though I try to baby her sometimes she is more than capable of doing whatever I ask her to do. She loves to help! When we have another baby she is going to be a HUGE help. Shes a little mommy. Genna is so so sweet. She is Kami's little shadow. They play so well together most times. She loves to snuggle, be held, kissed and hugged. Although I'm a bit at my wits end... she has been potty training and she is doing great with #1 but going #2 is a struggle. With the exception of the last two days she has only gone poop in the potty 4 times in the last month and a half. So if anyone has any good suggestions please let me know!! Other than that we are doing great and super excited for the holidays.

If I can get this to work..this is a video that Cam recorded at the Green Bay/Dallas game on sunday. Andrew told me the guy with the mullet was completely drunk and making a fool of himself the whole game. He kept giving Dallas fans high fives Andrew decided to mess with him and told the guy to give him a high five when he went to do it Andrew turned his back to him, which caused this fight. I can't get it to show on the blog, click the blank box and it will take you to the video on youtube.com. I'm still trying to figure this all out. If anyone wants to teach me, I would love that! :)

Well I don't have any new exciting things to write about but I figured if I'm going to keep this up I need to keep posting or it will get put aside like all my other projects. We are really excited to see Andrew on saturday night. We get to have him home for alittle over 24hrs. I'll take what I can get. It will be really nice to see him. Kami is going to have her very first primary program. She even has a part : I can pray. She has to sit up on the stand the whole meeting. I am actually really nervous about this. We have been avoiding sacrament a lot because we don't want to deal with it, I know lazy ...so our kids aren't the most reverent and they aren't good at sitting still for very long like two minutes. Its going to be very interesting to see how she does. I can almost guarantee she will be the kid that everyone is laughing at, my face will be bright red the whole meeting and andrew will probably be fuming. I'll let you all know how it goes, maybe, hopefully she will surprise us. I've been trying to potty train Genna but she likes being a baby. Everytime I bring it up or try putting her on the toilet she cries. I guess she'll be ready when she's ready but I'm almost out of diapers and refuse to buy more. They are both loving ballet and Kami loves preschool although its like pulling teeth to get her to tell me about it.

Well I'm finally trying to blog! I can't promise that I will always be on top of it but at least I am going to try. My family is changing so much and the girls are so active and now have their own little social lives that I thought I should share it with all that wanted to read about it. Kameryn is now going to preschool and both girls are in ballet. Kami is loving preschool although she told me she thinks learning is boring. She also enjoyed ballet until the teacher wouldn't let her be first every time and then she never wanted to go back. That's Kami for you! Genna on the other hand loved it and also didn't have much to say about it. She will gladly show her new moves to anyone that wants to watch. Andrew is still slaving away in IL. He is doing amazing this year, I'm so proud of him!!! He will be there til the end of October and we miss him like crazy! I keep hoping he will try to make it out for a weekend to visit. Well that's us in a nutshell.
