It's off to Salina we go!

Tonight Jon was offered a Police Officer job in Salina, Utah. He took the offer! Now it's time to get packing! It's an exciting yet sad time. I will miss the wonderful family, great neighbors and friends we have around us.

Jan 5th The girls doing lunch and getting their nails done.

Pyper and Alanna enjoying another lunch together.
Then they had their nails done. Pyper can't keep her eyes off of them. Don't you love Alanna's smile!
Blowing them dry. Cute girls!

New Year's Eve

This year for New Years Eve we went over to Jon's parents house. We had another get together that we all could enjoy. Gavin and Troy were in town!
(Below Grandpa Moser is enjoying a treat off the cup cake holders I got while doing my after Christmas shopping with the Hendrickson gals.)
Cute boys! Since this is my last baby, and all of Jon's siblings are done having kids, below are the only Grandsons there will be.
We opened gifts from each other since we knew we would all be together this day.
Great-Grandma Jones is showing Pyper how her gift works.

Jon brought over some fire works. He, Grandpa Moser and most of the grandkids went out side to let them off. They came back in to the house laughing. So it must have been a good time. I sent Riley out with the camera. It was way too cold for me!
Just enjoying each other.
We played the Candy Bar game again. Even Great-Grandma Jones joined in this time!
These two gals were out before the party was over. We left Grandma Moser's house and headed home a little after 11:00. Preston really wanted to stay up for the new year. We had to wake him up a couple of minutes before the ball dropped. We had a big family hug and then it was off to bed. What a crazy, wonderful year this was for us! Sure do love my life and family!

Christmas 2010!

Santa, Jon & I did a great job this year. Not a sad kid here Christmas morning. They kids slept in until 7:00. I listened to them upstairs. I loved hearing them all come down the stairs together whispering. Then there was the sweetest little voice saying, "Wake up, it's Christmas morning!" Preston and Riley say they did not prep her for it, that Pyper said it on her own. I was so excited for Christmas this year. I remember waking up at 4:00 A.M. and making myself hurry back to sleep so the morning would come faster.

Pyper opened her pink legos first. Then she was done. All she wanted to do was play with that while everyone else opened up their gifts. I love her sleepy eyes!

I have to say that this has probably been my favorite Christmas thus far. I usually host a Christmas brunch with the Palmer side of the family. This year being aware of my hard pregnancy, my sister-in-law Alicia offered to host. It was a load off. I was smart this time with my pregnancy and did not over plan my life. I took it easy! Because of this I was able to slow down and enjoy life more (when I wasn't throwing up).

(Below we played the dice candy bar game. It was a blast!)

I'm not sure who started this one. Jon and Alicia are true brother and sister. They love to tease each other. Jon wants to make sure Alicia knows he is still her big brother or something.

Troy's family was out of town. So, the grandkids that were there posed for a quick picture.
After we were done at Alicia's house, the kids and I headed down to Toquerville for a short trip to avoid any bad weather driving. (Jon had to stay because of work) We had a good time down with the Hendricksons. The grandkids played a ton together. We got some good games in. Even got a high off of the after Christmas shopping I did with the Hendrickson gals. We hit the Washington City Rec Center Pool. Pyper wanted to just move in there. We had a great breakfast and lunch at my moms before heading back home. I'm mad at myself for not taking any pictures while down in Southern Utah.

Christmas Eve

We had a fun little Christmas Eve Dinner. Corn Dogs and Sparkling Cyder.. can't beat that! Santa was so nice to stop in and say hello to the kids. He brought treats and told the kids to hurry off to bed so he could come back and bring gifts soon! We loved it! They all gave him a hug and Pyper acted like they were old friends. She was not scared one bit.

I had to snap this shot. This is the kids just before bed looking at the gifts under the tree.
