Build a Bear

The kids got certificates for Build a Bear for Christmas so we went today. Blake de-skirted the bear in the window display right before we took this picture.

Blake's owl.

Blake's finished dressed owl.

Brandon playing with a fluffy outfit.

One of Derek's finished outfits. Notice he choose a U of U shirt just to spite his dad again.

Katelyn was most interested in playing with the phone that was for her kitty.


On Christmas Eve we each open one gift (picked by mom). Magically, it's always new Pajamas.

Derek thought the scooter was his but...

Brandon LOVES horses.

We don't feed her much.

Blake couldn't wait to start drawing in his new sketchbook and he started before he was done opening presents.

He promtly took off his pajamas when he put on his Snugie.

Cougar in our backyard

A little over a week ago we got up on a Saturday morning and we found some tracks in the backyard. The best tracks where on our back patio. The one next to the hand was taken just a couple of feet from the basement door. It certainly looks like a pretty big kitty! There were tracks all around the backyard. We were worried because we couldn’t find our cat, Spike, for about 15 minutes but he showed up just fine.

We went to a Christmas party put on by one of the groups that provide services for Brandon. I only had my cell phone so we didn’t get a lot of good pictures but here is one of Brandon on Santa’s lap.

They sang songs and used bells. Brandon loves music. Can you tell?

The funny part about this one is they asked us to take this picture. They sat down and started saying “cheese” without a camera in site.

Christmas Decorating

We recently put up our Christmas tree. The kids were all very excited and they all wanted to help.

Blake went under the tree and so Katelyn had to follow.

Brandon and Katelyn don't know that the Wii controllers don't work on the Xbox.

Our dentist Christmas Party is at the Peaks Ice Arena. Amy took all of the kids.
