Ben & his best buddy E

Last night I went to tuck all my kiddos in bed.  Ben was *almost* asleep clutching a hanger.  When I tried to pry it out of his hands he gripped it tightly and said *with eyes still closed* no mom that is my bow and arrow for shooting brutes and these on my head are lasers.  I put them on after I say my prayers.

Oh the life of a little boy!!

December Fun!

Making Gingerbread houses with Grandma.  One of our favorite Traditions.  Grandma brings all the supplies and helps the kids decorate a house and a cookie!  YUM!  

We had a quick trip to Seattle to see fun cousins!  Matt, Ashley & the kids were visiting from Colorado

The girlie cousins, Savannah, Tristyn, Melissa, Isabella

Lance & Ben, new friends!  


Grandma Teuschers party is always a December Favorite!  We loved our little photo op this year!  Especially this classic of Kimberly & Talia!  

Savannah & Emily

Hyrum & Ben

And of course hunting for the perfect tree is always an adventure.  Especially when mom leaves her wallet at home, and then when running home to get it (after the tree has been cut and everyone is standing around waiting) she runs out of gas not he way back!

 Traditional Holiday photos before church in new church outfits.  I try to match the kids, which Dave hates but tolerates because I love it.  It didn't go as planned Christmas morning because last year church fell right at nap time.  Timing getting the kids dressed was always an issue, too early means food all over your clothes and a rumpled mess for church.  Too late means well you're late.  So the dreaded nap time picture session!

We started with this
Decided to just do some without baby
The girlie girls

My boys, seriously I have gotten to church the last 4 Sundays and either Ben or Emily has been  missing a shoe!  
This was as good as it got with the little princess!  She would have none of it!  

Luckily she fell asleep in the car on the way to church and slept most of sacrament meeting!
