Blogging Break

I have a lot on my plate right now so I decided to take a blogging break.  This is my journal and I love having it but it takes so much time. I wish blogger was faster about uploading pictures.  I am currently using Instagram a lot and you can make books from your post so that will be my journal for a bit.  I plan on finishing the rest of my post for 2014 and then taking 2015 off of here.

Right now we are starting the adoption process and hope to adopt at least one more time.  You can

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was at our house. We played in fake snow, ate some yummy Mexican food, Sara told a story, Santa came, the adults opened gag gifts, everyone opened new PJ's and then we put the kids to bed. We had lots of fun!

Santa Came! Even though most the kids know its Aaron, they don't care they love it!

PJ time!

After everyone left we took some photos before bed

Sexy Sweater Christmas Party

Every year the Gray's have a Christmas party before Christmas.  They call it a Sexy Sweater party.  Aaron and I bought new sweaters this year for the party.  Before we left for the Gray's we went to Sara and Adam's and went to the party with them.  It was a super fun night!

Emmie's 1st Cheer peformance

Emmie has been doing tumbling for about a year and getting pretty good. She wants to go into cheerleading but the place she does it at is really good and travels for competitions. I wanted Emmie to gain more experience and practice before we even considered trying to be on those teams. Her gym did a 8 week clinic of cheer and their last week had a night for the girls to perform. We have never seen her practice this before so it was our 1st time seeing the routine. We couldn't believe how great she did and she even had several stunts she did on her own. We were so proud of her!

Her 1st trophy!

 She will be doing another Cheer session with them, I can't wait to see her next performance!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

Our Christmas card this year was pictures we got taken in Hawaii.

Santa Night at our House

We had our Santa night and I couldn't believe the great turn out we had. This was our 8th Christmas doing it and it was our biggest turn out ever. It was non-stop people the whole time. I loved it! A few times we even had a long line to take pics with Santa. This year our new addition was our snow machine. Everyone loved it and the kids couldn't get enough. What a fun night, thanks to all who came!

I was getting pictures of my kids and then the crowds came so I only got Paxton done and had to get my other kids at the very end.   Paxton's wearing a suit Hayden wore too when he will little.

Santa getting letters....so cute!

Paxton sitting their with this cup cracked me up, like he was on break or something.

Love that we had snow on our porch
