I love the Christmas season. But each year I get more and more kids that I need to get Christmas for. I usually can get the bigger gifts just fine, its the little gifts that make it look like we had a big Christmas that are hard for me. Kerry and I went shopping for gifts last night and we split up so we could get more done. Kerry went to the toy store and I went to a clothing store. I was pumped we were going to get alot done. I quickly found outfits for family pictures ( and no they do not get wrapped) and then Kerry came and we went to the toy store to look over his selections. He had found a train set to run under our tree and a toy for his brother Tysen(who we do not have for Christmas). We walked out with a toy for Tysen and a gift for Lexi. By that time it was late and time to go home. The question is? what did we accmplish? Not much! 22 days and counting.

Kensi was such a lifesaver. She stayed in one room with Megan, Ashley and Madison. She was so much fun. We dragged her along everywhere we went and she did such w wonderful job pretending like she was having fun. We would have never been able to do this trip without her. She also has alot of the cute pictures with her. I think that the girls loved spending time with her. It was like a party every time it was bedtime.

It is finally 7:00 a.m. I have been up since 6 and I am so tired but I can't sleep. But I am having to be very quiet because every one else is still asleep. So I thought I would write a quick blog.
Kerry and I are trying to go on a cruise in November. We have been looking at one that goes to jamaica but it is not the cheapest and we have been trying to decide if it was worth it. Well when I got on the computer this morning it went up another $100. ugh. So now what do we do. I am ready to just call it off.
Last night we had another pizza party in Kerrys Brothers back yard. It was so fun we had a niece and a nephew who have the same birthday. It was one big party. Afterward some of them went over to breckens to play on there volleyball court. Megan was able to go and babysit for Tyson and Lori while they went. She loved every minute of it. I still cannot believe how old she is getting.

I remembered one more funny thing about Madison.
Whenever she has a cough she tells us that she has bad voices. So last night around 3 a.m. Lexi was coughing and Madison in her sleep in the room across the hall says, something along the line of she has bad voices. It was so funny to hear her say it in her sleep.

I read Breeann's post I am going to copy it for our family. Here is a list of three funny/strange things about each individual in our family unit.
Lexi: 1- Lexi out of the blue will lean her head over and start say "ah ah ah ah choo" and make the motion of sneazing. We all love her high pitched little voice saying the choo part
2-She loves Dora and is always asking to see it. But she doesn't just say dora she say's dowha. repeated 10 times. Along with this she say's Wori for aunt Lori , Nani for Annie and papa for Grandma and Grandpa.
3-If you ask her something she doesn't know she says I o know. Which means I don't know
Madison:1-She loves to pick her own clothing. Including her underwear. I have just come to the conclusion that if it something that Kerry or I pick out it is for sure not what she is going to wear. She usually comes in with a broken hanger every day that is from her pulling her shirt down. When she does not break it she shows it to us because she is so proud.
2- 3 means 2. If she is yelling "I want 3 I want 3 " you could give her 2 and she is great.
3-If you are on her bad side you are " not invited to my birthday party" BUT if you do something good " You can come to my birthday party." and you know you are on her good side
Ashley:1-She would take five baths a day if we let her. But if you want to do her hair good luck. Oh and that does not mean five new outfits. It usually means the same outfit for a few days.
2-She is definitly related to Nick
3-She loves favorite cassorole(shepards pie) and could eat it for every meal (except Breakfast she only wants cream of wheat.with toast)
Megan: 1-If you don't watch out she will come and visit you at night. (she sleep walks)
2-much to our dismay she loves animals and has already informed us that when she gets married she is getting "a half Lab and half golden retriver that loves ball and is playful" yes she is standing over my shoulder telling me what to say.( oh wait that should be # 3)
3-she is always doing her hair or getting ready. When the whole family is in the car she is still in the house looking for just the right thing to top off her outfit.
Kerry:1-He still has these plaid (blue and green) pants from his mission that he will not throw out and he still wears them. He wore them to the Temple just last week
2-He is a perfectionist in his own way. The 3 motorcycles in the garage are perfectly buffed and polished almost every week. But if you get in his truck you would not believe it was the same man.
3-the first thing he does when he wakes up and the last thing that he does before he goes to bed is to make sure his hair is wetted down or gelled. And he always has socks on.

Kerry and I took a little trip to Bryce Canyon this weekend on his motorcycle. It was so much fun. We had Kerrys sister Miranda come on friday morning and we were off. we headed through Gunlock and went up through Enterprise and up through Cedar and over freezing Cedar Mountain. We finally made it and checked into a cute little cabin in Tropic. We had a blast just being the two of us. We toured Bryce and ate out and slept in. Then came back through Zion Park, Jessica came and stayed the night with our kids. We are so greatful for family.

I just love my cute addicted husband. Anyone else in the same predicament? I know of a few. (Bree) If you noticed that I have new coloring on our blog that would be the addicted. He spent all Saturday traveling to Vegas with 3 if our youngest girls picking up a motorcycle that is not for him . Then when he got home he proceeded to take pictures, talk on the phone and look on the Internet, all about this new motorcycle. Then Sunday morning when he was home from church with a sick Ashley, he BLOGS about it. Not how cute his girls were on the trip, not that he forgot to get krispy kremes for his wife and not about the hot date he went on with his hot wife, but about the new member of our garage. And he even included pictures. Now if you do not call that addicted, what is? Oh the joy!
Now back to the family life. We have all been sick with the flu and cold. UGH! To top that off the night I was coming down with it I was driving home and got a ticket. And no it was not for speeding. If you want to know more I will tell later

Today I was just reflecting on my life. I have spent the past couple of days worrying. worrying aboout my Mom and worrying about My Grandma and Grandpa and worrying about making sure that everyone is taken care of. Grandma Goodwin passed away last night! The last 4 weeks or more my Mom and Aunts and Uncles have been taking care of her and Grandpa. She had been fairly healthy, and Grandpa had been the one we were concerned about because of his health. She just kept getting sick and never got better. I was given the oppurtunity to be there when she left her earthly home. I would have to describe the event to be one of the most emotional and spiritual things I have ever done. I don't think that I ever new my aunts and uncles and grandpa as well as I did last night. I had never seen any of them cry and I do not think there was a dry eye in the room. My Grandpa loves her so much! I realized how much love and compassion there is in my Moms family. Grandpa reallly struggled during the whole thing. They took her off of life support around 4:30 p.m. I went into the I.C.U. around 7:00 p.m. with Kerry and was lucky to be able to go into the room that my grandma was in.They brought Grandpa back in from a short rest soon after. She passed away around 8:45 p.m. Grandpa finally told her that she could go and they brought in a c.d. player with uncle Kents music on it. the C.D play I am a Child of God and the nearer my God to thee and during that song is when she passed. I love my Grandma so much and have had a really hard time with her leaving. I am very greatful for the oppurtunity to have been her grandchild. She is such an amazing woman. She raised 7 wonderful children who are all still married and sealed to there 1st spouse and every one of them were there last night. She also had 42 grandchildren who are all still living and 91 great grand kids. I am very proud to be called her grandaughter and cannot wait to see her again. I just thought that along with this I would put a picture of my wonderful children and hope that when I get old that my kids will be able to say the same about me. I love you Grandma!

I know what everyone is thinking. Holy cow she is actually updating her blog again. So soon! Yes!
Life is actually almost getting a routine. We go to church on sunday, and then try to survive until the next sunday. Yep thats are routine. Pretty organized isn't it.
Well anyway Yesterday we had the power go out around 4:00 in the afternoon. Rumor had it that it would be out for 2 or 3 days. Ugh! So what do I do? I run to the grocery store to get Ice for our cooler to keep our milk cold.Then for family night we went with our home teacher Brother Cain and his wife to the lake. We had so much fun and we stayed cool. They took out a tube behind there boat that all of the girls took there turns on. Ashley was the first and from my view on the boat she was having a blast. She would put her thumb down to tell us to go slower and up to go faster, I don't think I actually saw the thumb go up. Megan finally was convinced that she would not need another E.R. visit if she went out, so out she went. Oh my I don't think I have ever seen someone so animated about being nervous. She was so funny! Her mouth was moving the whole time and we had no clue what she was saying.She took her turn and by that time Madison was ready as ever to get out. I thought that hers would be a two minute slow ride. She surprised us all. At first she sort of layed down in the tube were we couldn't see her and we thought she had went to sleep, but as soon as we stopped she popped right up and said she wanted another turn. That was all she wrote. We took off with her in tow and she was popping up and down with the biggest smile ever. She looked like she was trying to stand up. she was jumping and waving and all the while having a blast. We had a hard time trying to convince her that her turn was up. Lexi didn't care about anything else but the steering wheel and the driver. Our home teacher loved the attention and had her in his lap the whole time.(they have been trying to adopt for quiet awhile)I hope that we will have pictures to put up soon we took lots. we had alot of fun and had fun getting to know our home teacher and his wife better.
We were all prepared to come home to a warm home and no lights but lo and behold the power was back on. Yea we missed all the excitment of no power. I was all prepared to live of of the meat in our freezer grilled on our gas grill with fresh vegatables from our garden. oh well I will still do it anyway it still sounds yummy.

We had a blast this weekend by going to Salt Lake. We took our little family for a quick trip. I had to go for a Fashion show for the new Modbe fall line.
Kerry was able to snag a 1098 Ducati Motorcycle while we were up there. He is so Excited. He had been looking for one for at least 6 months. Every time the dealerships got them in they were already sold and Ebay sold them before the auction ended. So we were shocked when we walked into the dealership and found out they had one in the back room. So we drove home with a u-haul full with a brand new Ducati.
The Fashion show was amazing. I was so excited to see that modbe came out with jeans. They also came out with some cool shirts. I bought way to much for my fall wardrobe.I really did not plan on selling much in Modbe but the stuff is so cute that I have been very busy.
Ashleys birthday is coming up on thursday she is going to be 7. she is so excited.
Madison kept asking the whole way home"are we going to sleep at Hallies tonight? When will we be at Hallies house?" we had to keep explaining to her that we were going home.
We also got to go out to dinner with Bree and Tyler it was alot of fun.
Well my kids are calling me I had better go.
