So during this fun Sub-for-Santa, I am pretty sure my poor family was a bit neglected. Kaycie kept asking when I was coming home and when I finally did make it home one night. Riley decided to make mud pies on my carpet with a gallon of milk and chocolate milk mix. I am still trying to pull that from the carpet. I am sure this was some attention seeking behavior! Well it worked!!
After working Thursday, Mark took me to the Provo Temple for our 15-year Temple Anniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been 15-years since we were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. I still remember it and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had.
Friday, our friends decided that we could buy each others tickets for Christmas to a double-feature. First we saw 7 pounds. Oh my word, pull out the razor blades, this was "The" most depressing film I have ever seen. If I weren't in a packed movie theatre, I would have cried outloud...I mean sobbed! Next we saw Yes Man. Oh my word, I laughed so hard. I was glad to see such a funny film after the first one!
Saturday, I finally finished all of my Christmas Shopping...what a relief that is!
I am so excited for Christmas. I am taking two weeks off of work and am excited to spend the time with my kids.
Merry Christmas to everyone!

Monday, we took Jake out for his birthday, can you believe I have a 12-year old!! We saw Madagascar 2, which I loved. Riley clapped when it was over and it was the first movie he watched in the theatre the entire way through. Usually we have to leave half way through the movie!
Tuesday, it was Jake's birthday and we entertained 7 twelve year olds. Jake had a blast!
On Wednesday, our friends Jake and Heather, invited us to pre-Thanksgiving Pie Party. It was yummy! Jake made "several" pies and I couldn't stop eating.
On Thanksgiving, Mark played football in the morning with friends and then he came home and started baking pies for his Mom's Thanksgiving dinner. We ate and then literally fell asleep.
Friday, I went shopping with my mom and my grandma (my Mom's Mom). We shopped from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. We had a blast! This is a tradition we've had since I was really young. I love it!!
Saturday, we layed around recuperating from the long weekend and then Mark and I went with friends to "Four Christmases". I never laughed so hard!
On Sunday, Jake was ordained a Deacon, we were so proud of him. He had a great day being recognized for all of his hard work completing his Faith in God. He also got up in front of all of the adults for the 5th Sunday meeting and recited the 13th Article of Faith. I was more nervous than him! He did a great job!!

Riley the Bee
...we were lucky to keep Riley's costume on most of the night! I really think he ended up with more candy than Jake or Kaycie!!

Oh no...I expected pictures of the class all dressed in their cute costumes, instead I get Riley dressed in half his costume and some ladies hat and purse!! Isn't he/she sweet??? What's up with this? He is so cute though...even though he loves to play dress up!

So the other day...I was doing dishes, Mark was working in the office...and where
was Riley? So I yell to Mark, "do you know where Riley is?"
As I was walking back to my bedroom, I could hear the water running...I was thinking great, we've got a mess on our hands! Riley had decided that CoCo needed a bath. You could just see it in CoCo's eyes...PLEASE SAVE ME!!
