Daddy has it!

Why I am posting this I don't know but here it goes-
So we were getting ready to runs some errands today and for the life of me I couldn't find my bra. (Still can't find it.) Baylee was in the room with me when I was looking, rushing me along. I looked at her and asked if she has seen my bra. The kids think it is funny to walk around the house with it on! (Again why am I writing this?) Baylee looked at me and said "Daddy has it, he needed it!" Really was my response. "YEP!" just as serious as possible. What we would do without this little girl!!

WWF Mortensen style

This is Jax and Andrew's nightly ritual. A little WWF action here. Looks like Jaxs got the upper hand tonight! Love these two!
 That is Jaxsen's "cheese" pose.
"Look MOM, I got him!"

Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a busy one and unfortunately I didn't get many photos. One I am so sad I didn't get was the little trick we played on Drew. Drew was for sure that he was getting this really nice remote control car. Andrew and I did our best to convince the 12 year old that it was coming. So Andrew and Santa's idea was to take the car out of the box, hide it and then wrap up a little tiny car inside this huge box. Usually Santa lays out their big gifts but we all decided to pull a quick one on him. As Drew open the big box his eyes lit up. Andrew told him to open the box. As he pulled out the little car you could see the disappointment wash over his face. But in true Drew style, he says "That's OK, this is cool." Then we had Brooklyn go over to the closet and pull out his car. Drew jumped from the couch and in about 2 steps was to his dad in a huge hug! He was trilled!

The rest of the day was busy going to my family's house to quickly open gifts and the hurry up to the Mortensen's house for dinner.
We were very blessed this year. To be celebrate the birth of our Savior. To be able to provide a good Christmas for our family in our own home was the biggest blessing for Andrew and I.

Christmas Eve 2010

Our annual tradition for Christmas Eve is to head up to Val and Mike's house have pigs in a blanket, potato salad, jello jigglers, chips, sprite with Christmas shaped kool-aid ice cubes, relish platter, and triffle.
After dinner we always play a few games made up by the fam. Mike this year made up a Christmas Bingo game. But went a step further and had one for the kids and one for the adults. My kids just love looking for the pictures. Baylee especially took it quite serious.
Then it is time for the annual "Nativity". Drew was Joseph, Brooklyn was the inn keeper, Baylee and Jax with shepherds (I think).
Last but not least is opening up the traditional "JAMMIE GIFT." Which the little kids absolutely love. I got the younger ones slippers to go with their jammies. Drew told me he wouldn't ever use them so not to worry.
 The kids table!
 Brooklyn also lost a tooth that night. It was quite the fiasco to get it out that her Papa thought she deserved $5 dollars for all her pain and suffering.

Brooklyn's winter TAVACI concert was on the 11th of December. Can I just say she has improved by leaps and bounds since last time she was in TAVACI (Dec 2008). We were kind of scared to put her back in because she was horrible last time. This time she was so stinkin cute! She loves listening to her TAVACI cd in the car, and even though it drove everyone else in the car nuts, she loved and practiced quite often. So proud of her!
The STAR!!
Where are her shoes?

The gals! Miss Bays being shy.
The only picture I got with Santa, you lucked out this year DREW!
My two sweethearts! Love them!
