Date Night with Carter

This does not happen near enough.  Carter still hadn't seen Frozen and since I was really wanting to see it AGAIN we both thought that would be a perfect late night date!

Thanks Buddy for going with me!  Hope he always thinks it's ok to hang with his mom cause I sure enjoy being with him. 

December House Progression

Things on the house really started moving along in December.  We like to take lots of trips over to see the progression. 

Since the backside of our house and yard are facing west and will get lots of sun Glen wanted a big covered back porch.  It really turned out beautiful and has become one of my favorite places....when the yard gets put it it will even be that much better!

My big desire on the house was a front porch.  I was so excited to finally see it there!

Church Nativity

Our wonderful primary nativity was the sunday before Christmas.  

Look at these beautiful angels!

Carter was a wise man for senior primary. 

Three very WISE men!

The Test by Carter Moore

We may have a poet in our family....hopefully he can make us some big money one day!

Girls Christmas Open House

Both girls had Christmas Open houses for dance this year.  It was fun to watch them and very entertaining!

Maggie loves her dance class and we sure enjoy watching her show us what she's learning each week.  Ms. Kimber does a good job teaching these little girls!

It's also fun to watch Bess and see how much she is progressing.  She really is the best dancer in her class.....maybe all these years of classes are finally paying off!

Eagle Christmas Parade

The city of Eagle put on a fun little Christmas celebration right down town Eagle.  There were lots of kid crafts and entertainment. 
It was a bit chilly but all were quite content hanging with their buddies.  

Maggie was the only one of my kids that would sit on Santa's lap.  Boo hoo! My kids aren't suppose to grow up!

Bess and Sara sipping their hot cocoa to keep warm. 

Funny boys!

Facing painting is always a hit for this one.  She had to go back twice!

Twins with their santa balloon hats and face paintings.

Maggie and Her Buddy Savanahh

Maggie has a very deep love for her 12 year old friend Savannah, and Savannah is very good with her. She never lacks for entertainment when she spends time with her.
Crazy girls!

Dec. 5th the BIG 4-0

How lucky are we to have this guy in our lives?!!  He's truly the best father and entertainer to all.  We really are so much happier when he is around.

Even though we didn't do anything too exciting for this BIG birthday he still loves us just the same!

Tree Hunt

When we moved from Salt Lake we had to retire our very old artificial tree so that left us on the hunt for a new one.  
We decided to switch things up and do a real tree this year.  It was fun to go find just that perfect one! 

Later that night after setting up our tree Glen and Carter headed out to a BSU game.  I think they enjoyed their boy bonding time!

While us girls were quite content with a little frozen yogurt from our favorite Aspen Leaf.  It's safe to say everyone was quite content!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Does finding a note like this get any better?  Bess made this list of what she was thankful for at church. Funny thing is her teacher told me I needed to read it that Sunday that she wrote her list but I totally spaced it till a couple days later.  I was so happy to see it and really grateful that she was happy I "bore her!"

We had a very full house our first Thanksgiving living in Boise.
All of my siblings with their families plus my parents came to spend it with us.

We spent lots of time playing games, visiting, sleeping, relaxing, and just enjoying our time together!

The whole gang including Ryan's dog, Hooch. 

The saddest thing about our holiday is that these are the only pictures I got.  I need to be better about taking more pictures for the memories.  

Shortly after everyone pulled away from the long weekend this is how I found these two.  I think they were worn out!

My brother Ryan drove up from Seattle with his dog.  We then got to dog sit while he flew on to San Fran for a 49ers game. 

It was fun to dog sit for a few days but also fun to have his owner back and not feel that extra responsibility.  We all enjoyed Hooch!

The Cat Came Back the Very Next Day

Oh this cat that will eventually be the death of me!  

Midnight went missing for about 24 hours and it pretty much sent Carter into a panic.  The good dad that Glen is he helped Carter make these signs that he was insistent about making. 
They took about 30 mins hanging the signs all over the neighborhood for it only to downpour about a hour later, so we had white wet papers laying on the ground.

Luckily for Carter midnight reappeared just the very next day.  I was secretly hoping that he found another good family to adopt him, I mean I wouldn't want anything awful to happen to Midnight but if he found a awesome family that loved him how happy would that be?!

The cat just couldn't stay away!

Weekend Trip to Utah

We took a quick family weekend trip to Utah.....I am sure there was a reason, but I just don't really remember right now?  Either way we got lots of family and friend time in so that was reason enough!

Reunited and it feels so good!  Everyone was happy to see their Buddy Roe!

We had a extra bonus of getting together with our GOOD friends the Gygis.  Carter was hanging with his friend Chase so it was just the 4 of us plus we got to take Roe along with.  
These two girls are so fun to get together.  Never a dull moment or drama with these two and I love it!
And look how big that Betsy is!!!  Seems just like yesterday Jessica was telling me her big news!

A quick dinner at Hires, lots of good conversation and we were all happy! 

Back to Aunt Megan's for a bath.  Two naked bums!

It was the perfect weekend to be there because Grandma Berger happened to be visiting Paul, Joni, and girls.  
We went to a fun place for dinner and games.  It was another perfect night!

The games were a big hit with the kids and Paul!

Last minute pictures before we headed out.  I think you can tell who attended church that day and who didn't......

Trying to get a picture with everyone looking was not easy!
