Merry Christmas to all.....

Christmas time this year has been so much fun with these three monkeys!

Hope everyone is having a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Early Christmas from Japan

We recieved a package from Kenta's sister Tomoko the other day. It was full of Christmas presents for the boys. Of course they couldn't wait to open them all so we decided to let them go at it!

She sent all 3 of the boys these CUTE matching converse shoes. They look so cute wearing them!

They got a fun pirate game and book.....

Look how cute this spoons and forks are!

She also sent a bunch of yummy treats. =)
Thank you so much Tomoko! The boys are having so much fun with all their new goodies! =)

Girl's night. =)

Me and a couple of my friends did a little Momlorette (instead of bachelorette) gathering for my friend Raquel. She is due any minute to have her first baby, which is a BOY. We decided to celebrate her last free moments as a free women and go to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. It was my first time going there and won't be my last. Their food was delicious and their super expensive cheesecake was even better!
It's not very often at all that I get just a girl's night, but I vote I should get more! =)
Congrats Raquel, I can't wait to meet your little guy!

Thanksgiving weekend.

Thanksgiving weekend was very relaxing and enjoyable this year. My parents just bought a beautiful new home in Delaware Ohio which is about 40 minutes away from me now. So this was our first family gathering at their new home. We ended up just staying and sleeping up their the entire weekend.

My mom invited the missionaries to join us for the day. We had a delicious dinner that everyone pitched in and help make.
Kai's first Thanksgiving dinner.Mashed potatoes. =)
When we weren't eating off and on all day we were playing some kind of game. This was our MEAN game of spoons. I lost.

More games.....

....and more....

My mom's new house has a hot tub so that was a nice relaxing luxury we enjoyed that weekend.

After LOTS of shopping on Black Friday we all went to the Festival of lights. Lots of cool lights to see, Noah asked to me to take a picture of almost every single thing. They thought it was the coolest thing ever!

It was Santa's first night at the Festival of lights and we waited about half an hour to see him. This was the first year that Eli didn't freak out at the sight of him. He actually walked right up to him jumped on his lap and asked him for some new choo choo trains. =) Noah jumped on his lap and Santa asked what he wanted and he said I sent you a list in the mail. (which he did about a week prior.) He is soooo excited for Christmas!
Kai was the first one of my kids to not freak out and cry at the sight of Santa clause. It didn't surprise me though just because Kai has always been a really chilled and laid back baby.

This Thanksgiving I am so thankful to have such an wonderful family. I have the GREATEST kids and husband a girl could ask for. I have the best parents, brothers, and sisters. We all just have so much fun together and I love them all so much. I couldn't have asked for a better family.
