I just had to post a picture of the cute lists that Jaxson made for me today. He decorated this christmas card with stickers and wrote his christmas list on it. He wrote the words all by himself just by sounding them out. I am probably just a way proud mom, but this seems pretty smart for a preschooler. obviously it is not perfect but the list says: goblin (green goblin), pokemon, transformers, and hot wheel. The second list is my grocery list he made for me. It say milk, bread, and sled. He just amazes me everyday how smart he is getting.

Gingerbread House Party

Jeremy's sister and her family is home for Christmas and we are so excited! We all got together at Grandpa's last night to make gingerbread houses and have a party!

This is Alex sneaking candy. He could care less about making a house, he just wanted candy! I cannot control this kid around candy and it is the worst at grandpa's house!

ME and my BOYS making a house.

The finished product! Beautiful if I do say so myself.

Aunt Jana reading a christmas book to Miley, Alex, Hannah, and JoAnna

I was looking for Alex and I found him, Hannah, and JoAnna in Grandpas room with his stereo blaring christmas music dancing on his bed. It was really cute.

Alex sitting by his cousing Ashlynn.

Alex and Miley decided it would be fun to hide inside the cabinet and Grady is about ready to get in on the action!

Jeremy laid down on the couch and was immediately attacked by the big kids! Jeremy's Nieces and nephews just love him and have always loved to attack him!
Britton got to come play at our house for most the day yesterday and Jaxson and Alex had a blast playing with him.
This is Britton and Jaxson being silly after playing "fight night". Jeremy has "fight night" when he goes to a friends house to watch the UFC fights, so now Jaxson calls it playing "fight night" when they pretend like they are beating each other up. They both had to change their clothes into "fight night" clothes and they had alot of fun, but I had to break it up after a few minutes or it was going to turn into a real fight!

Nelson has discovered this "motorcycle" as Alex calls it. It is Alex's favorite bike in the whole world and now Nelson is big enough to ride it around and he loves it! It has made for world war 3 in our house! Jeremy was taking pictures of Nelson on it and Nelson started doing silly faces that he has been doing alot lately. He is so funny!

Alex, Britton, and Jaxson had a blast playing in the snow together.
Future Utah Jazz Players!
Alex and Nelson were playing basketball together the other day and Alex had his headband and writbands on so I dressed him in the rest of his Jazz basketball clothes and put this cute little John Stockton jersey on Nelson that aunt Jana gave him. Thanks aunt Jana, I love it! Aren't they the cutest little basketball players ever!
I just thought this was a really cute picture of Alex. He is at such a fun age and also at a very frustrated age because he is starting to talk really good, but I don't always understand him very well. I have been saying to him alot lately "I don't understand" and he gets really mad and says "NO! NOT STAND!"

For Family Home Evening this week we went to a local barn for some country dancin'. To get into the Christmas spirit we all dressed up as elves. We made up a dance as a family, and I must say, we stole the show, we were so awesome! We had it videotaped and I dowloaded it in the post below. Hope you enjoy!
