Grandma Sandy

Thomas and Grandma Sandy have been getting along famously. When Thomas was sick grandma would hold him like this and he would finally fall asleep. Isn't it wonderful when grandma is around to help when the baby is screaming. We have spent the last few days at home watching all day marathons and playing games. It has been a wonderful few days doing nothing. We hope that all of you are having a great few days off!

Well we are currently under quarinty here in our house! Poor Thomas has been sick for 2 weeks! We took him to the doctor last Sunday and the doctors said he was fine and just had a cold. So when he got sicker and started throwing up yesterday we took him back. He has raging ear infections in both ears and a stomach bug. So now I am sick and Ben is coming down with it.
But can someone please explain why men believe that the worse a medicine taste the better it is?
I mean really I know that I could take the gel caps and be just as good, but my husband insists on buying the crap that tastes like warm urine! YUCK! I hate being sick!

Christmas Eve in Utah.

All the grandkids got new pjs from Grandma Oborn. Thomas is now in a 18 month good thing grandma buy's them big so they fit perfect.

Elizabeth and I got Thomas and Milo matching outfits for Christmas Eve. Thomas loves Milo and if you look close Thomas is holding his hand. Too cute.

Thomas got a stacker from Tyler. He loves it.

Ben and his mom (with a little help from Katrina) made this gingerbread house from scratch. It turn out so cool that we took it with us to Christmas Eve so that the kids could eat it. But by the end of the night it was Elizabeth, Ben, Mandy and Thomas were the ones that had eaten it. We had a low key night with the Adults out numbering the kids witch is wired but fun. It was Amanda's family of 5, Ben and I plus Thomas an his mom, and Elizabeth's family and Allen's parents and brother. Everyone left around 8:30pm but Ben and I stayed and watched Christmas Vacation with the Bush's. We hope everyone eles had a grat Christmas Eve!

We had a good day. We didn't end up in Az, but we did go to Zion National Park. It was a little cold but was really pretty.

We went and saw Jaunita's grave. (did I spell it right Amy?) I was glad to be able to stop by, and get a pic of Thomas there.

There was lots of deer.

We also were able to stop and see the Dino tracks in St. George. We are now home and I am trying to get back into the Christmas spirit. I really should get up and get all the stuff put away but I think I will wait until tomorrow. Well I am glad to be back.

So Elizabeth, Ben, Thomas, Milo, and I went to see Santa today. Thomas has always really liked men with beards so I thought he would do well with Santa. Well not so! He was fine until I put him on Santa's lap and then he cried, and cried. Poor Thomas. But we did get a good pic of him and Milo with Santa, once we put Milo with Thomas he calmed down for a minute. It was so cute.

On another note Thomas has started to crawl! It is the funniest thing. He started last night and is really fast. No more things being left on the ground. Oh that reminds me I have to get cabinet locks.

Newest and oldest!

Christopher came over the day after Thanksgiving and we got this picture of Christopher and Milo. Can you believe the age gap 18 years! And there are 30 grandkids in total for mom and day. I can't believe it.

What the heck!

So my life is crazy right now. We are trying to get ready for Ben's mom to come (she comes next week and we are really excited) bit it seems like things just keep going wrong. Monday I lost my wallet! Well actually I think it was stolen at Wal-mart. Then Tuesday morning Ben walked into our walk in closet and it is full of water! So we called the landlord and they sent the repairman over and he said he fixed and well he was here he fixed the shower and range that we had all ready called about. He left us with the giant and load floor fan blowing and said he would be back in a few days to put in new pad and it should be fine. Well we woke up this morning and the water had reached the bedroom so we pulled all our stuff into the front room and Ben left for school when he go home we called the repairman he came back and has now said now it should be fixed. Well I hope so. On a happier note Ben got his final for his 7 habits class and it is an A! I am so proud of him!
