5 years

Saturday was my 5 year anniversary. We went to the temple in Columbus and then out to eat. It was nice to spend the day together, even if we had to get up at 5 am to do so. We were back by 3:30 to grandma's. That night we went to see the Christmas lights at the John Deere place in Fishers. They were pretty neat. They had a bunch of tractors, and a barn, and an ark, and the city of Bethlehem, and a big monster, and a train, and a ton more. The girls loved it. We have noticed that not very many have lights outside on there houses. It's kind of sad. Do you think it is the economy, or people just being lazy?

We have been at grandma's house for a few days and Sinclaire is loving the presents under the tree. I think we have looked at the names on the presents four times and have put them in a tower at least that many. It is fun to see her so excited for the big day. Tonight Sam is taking her shopping to buy presents for Kit Kat and grandma and who ever else. I know I will enjoy the evening.

Yesterday I went to Sam's work party. I got to see the office, his messy little cubical, eat some pretty good treats, and meet new people. It wasn't too bad for not knowing anyone, plus a couple hours break from the kiddos(thanks grandma).

Follow Up

This morning Sinclaire was eating her cream of wheat and she said, "Pops isn't a very good cooker.....because he is a man."

Cream of Wheat

Sam eats cream of wheat for breakfast, so lots of time Sinclaire will also want to eat it. This morning was no different. Unfortunately it was very runny. When this happens he adds yogurt. Well Sinclaire got it and tasted it and then stopped eating, which is normal, but then she made a funny face and said, "I don't like this." So I offered to make her some other. Then she said, "Pops, your not a very good cooker." We got a pretty good kick out of that.

One year old presents

So what do you buy a one year old for Christmas when they have tons of toys and don't need a darn thing?

Cute Kidos

I just thought these were some cute photos.

Emma's blanket

I think this little blanket took about 6 months to make. It is a baby blanket for pete's sake. Oh well. It was for my niece Emma, who absolutely adored it. It was fun to make, sorry the picture is a little blurry. Thanks to a friend who let me quilt it on her machine, that part didn't take too long, and I didn't have to baste it together.

What a long vacation. I feel like we have been gone for weeks. We spent 5 days in Utah with Sam's family and had a great Thanksgiving. We did see Twilight, and all but the 14 year old was a little disappointed. Ok, maybe a lot disappointed. Oh well, we were all prepared. Unfortunately that was not the worse part of the trip.

I will just sum it up quickly.

Delayed plane---two small children
Tired one year old on plane
Screaming three year old, that knows better, on same plane for almost 30 minutes
Have two more hours to wait in an airport, not to mention another flight
Kit Kat falling and hurting her arm
30 minutes later she is still crying and wont move her arm
Fly to Indy
Wait almost 90 minutes to get to my car while 4 buses for another lot leaves empty
It is 1 AM by now
Got to pay and the machin breaks
Get home and Sam fixes Kit Kat's elbow

So I would really not like to fly anytime soon. Kit Kat had what is called Nursemaids Elbow. I had thought that was it, but I wasn't sure. I tried to correct it, but I just couldn't do it, and she was crying right at me. So Sam took care of it. Then Kit Kat put her arms around my neck and went right to sleep.

It was a great trip, just a little rough on the way home.
