7 Random Facts!

Two tags both on Random things how Random is that!! Thanks Brittany & Courtney they were fun!!

1. I was actually a twin, my mom was put on bed rest at 7mo. but unfortunately my twin sister didn't make it. I bet now days with all the new technology she would've had a better chance! My mom says we would've been identical, that would've been so much fun!!

2. Dillon has been to the ER twice. The first time he got hurt on a trampoline, I thought for sure he did something to his knee but luckily nothing was wrong. The second time he woke up screaming and wouldn't walk. They couldn't find anything wrong, so we're guessing it was growing pains!!

3. For my 16th birthday my mom got me my own telephone line! my number was 397-2354 I thought I was so cool!!

4. Whenever Degan goes to the bathroom by himself he takes all of his clothes off. It's beginning to drive me crazy to have to get him dressed 10 times a day!!

5. I was 19 & Darin was 20 when we got married! It seems really young to me now, but 10 years and 3 kids later we're happy as can be!!

6. Darin loves to watch movies, I joke & tell him he'll watch anything from start to finish even if it's dumb. Now you all know why we have a theater in our house and it gets used all the time on Darin's days off!!

7. I slept in the same room as my parents until I was 12, & than after my dad passed away I slept with my mom, and than shared a room with my niece Krishna until my senior year in high school, I finally got my own room but didn't like it much so Krishy still slept in my room with me a lot. My mom thinks me being a twin has something to do with me not liking to be by myself, or maybe I'm just a woose!!!

I tag anyone who needs something to blog about!!

Faster Daddy Faster
YES an alarm clock!!(love the face)
Showing off his Power Ranger knife!!
Dustin's favorite toy!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I hope you all had a fun day with your kids!! I know I did! our day started out at about 6:30 so I had to make the boys stay upstairs until Darin got home at 7:00 so to keep them occupied I fixed them pancakes & eggs for breakfast and the whole time Dillon was saying: "but mom I'm not hungry, can I just run down to see if Santa came?" I know mean Mom making them wait but I think it was all worth the wait in the end!! Dillon was happy to see a bunch of transformers, a sleeping bag, heelys, a spiderman DS game, and an alarm clock!! Degan was excited for some new Power Ranger guys!! in fact I had to keep telling him he had presents to open, he just wanted to play with his Power Ranger stuff from Santa!! he did get super excited when he opened his Jordan shoes from his Dad!! and said look dad Jordan's like you!! Dustin didn't have a clue, he just kept trying to eat all the wrapping paper! so luckily we didn't have to buy him much! His favorite was a shapes puzzle!! We ended the day with Mom & Dad Jones & the Andrew Clan coming over and having a late lunch so the kids could show off their new stuff! Lots of Fun!!

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!

Sugar Rush!! Mmmmm Mmmmm Good! Brothers Helping out!! Helping Granny Open his present!
I know I've said it a hundred times, but where has the time gone? I can't believe my Baby Boy is one year old, he is growing up way to fast!! But I really do feel blessed to have this sweet little boy in our family for me to raise & love! He is a very easy going kid until one of his brothers takes something away from him, than his horns come out & he'll stiffen up his legs and hit the top of his thighs with his hands and begins to yell & cry, it's pretty funny & they do it just to watch him throw his little fit!! It's truly amazing what a child learns just in the first year, Dustin can say: Mama, Dada, Boo, BaBa (Bye Bye) & waves, NaNa (No No) & shakes his hand, and Hi!! He's super fast at crawling & has no interest in walking, he walks along the couches & will just sit down & crawl to get where he wants to go! He loves to get into the cabinets and play with what ever he can get his hands on so I've been forced to childproof with a bunch of my hair rubber bands!! I can't keep socks on his feet, he is always pulling them off, I find them all over the house & have a stash in each of the cars, I think he's trying to tell me something!! He now loves to give us Hi-5's & His Daddy loves to get wet slobbery kisses! it's funny cause He'll give Darin one almost every time he asks for one!! but not me he'll just lay his head on my chest for a little hug!! We Love our Dusty Boy & his Sweetness He is Spoiled Rotten but we wouldn't have it any other way!! Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!

Snowball Fight!!

Throwing a snowball at Dad!! Run Degan Run!
Even though the schools were closed on Thursday for a snow day, we here in Moapa Valley didn't get so much as a flurry of snow & Dillon even asked if it's a snow day where's the snow?? and was a little bummed. We had to go do some last minute shopping in St. George yesterday and the whole way through the Gorge Dillon kept begging Darin to pull over so he could play in the snow! but luckily there was still some snow in Grandma & Grandpa's yard!! They were so excited to get to eat & play in the snow!! Darin immediately started throwing snow at the boys & had a little snowball fight, it however didn't last very long, notice they don't have any gloves on!! They still had a lot of fun and Dillon now wants to move to St. George where it snows!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!Dustin-My Little drummer Boy! Degan-Eating all his decorations!
Dillon-Having Fun decorating his gingerbread house!
Jones Family singing Christmas Carols!
Our Family has lots of traditions and one of our favorites is Granny & Papa's Annual Christmas Party at their house!! Jordan & Alisha made the long drive down from Idaho so while they were here Granny decided to PAR-TAY!! this year was no disappointment just as fun as all the others! we had dinner (yummy tostadas), sang Christmas Carols (jingle bells a lot cause the kids knew that one), White Elephant Gifts (I got the book: What to expect-The toddler years) , Gingerbread Houses (After all these years Granny finally figured out that having them pre-assembled, ready to decorate works best for the little ones-less frustrating & less mess!), & Papa usually tells the story of Christs birth but somehow this year we skipped it. It's always a lot of fun to get together especially this time of year! Can't wait till next year!! Thanks Mom & Dad for a great Party! Darin's bummed he missed it!

Christmas Goodies!!

Making Sugar Cookies! Mushing up Graham Crackers!
Taste testing the cookies!!
Christmas just isn't Christmas without making a bunch of Goodies for your family & friends (that they don't really need) to enjoy!! Yesterday Aunt Carla & Allie came over and made a whole bunch of different things with the boys! Dillon & Allie had fun cutting out and frosting the sugar cookies! Degan enjoyed sampling the dough & the frosting, in fact he would frost his cookie, than lick the knife, frost his cookie, than lick the knife (you get the idea) His cookies are on a special plate just for him to enjoy!! The boys had a lot of fun making a mess with their Aunt Carla!! (probably because she let them do way more than I ever would) and now want to do it every year!! The only problem is all the leftovers I'm forced to eat but they are enjoying all the Christmas Goodies!!

Santa Clause Is Coming To Town!!

I want a spiderman video game, transformers, & a wall-e toy!! Do you want some candy little boy!!
Traumatizing Dusty Boy!!
They had a breakfast with Santa at Lin's on Saturday morning! Dillon was excited to meet him and tell him what he wants for Christmas, and Degan was excited to until it was his turn to sit on his lap, he would not go near him I was trying to drag him up there but I could see the fear in his face so I stopped but as soon as Santa pulled out a candy cane he walked right over without any hesitation!! (man that kid loves candy) Dustin did exactly what I thought he would do but I gave it a try anyways!! and than they had donuts, muffins & OJ! Lots of Fun!!

OH How Sweet

Dillon has always been a very kind & loving kid, even as a baby he was very easy going and loved to snuggle with us. He is very sweet especially to his Mom! If he likes what I'm wearing he'll tell me I look nice or after I do my hair he'll tell me he likes my hair! But today he did the cutest most sweetest thing ever, him & I were looking through the Lia Sophia jewelry magazine picking stuff out and he was asking me which necklaces I liked and offered to buy me some!! (kids have no concept of money!) I pointed to a red one with beads (see picture below) and told him I really liked that one. He disappeared for awhile and came out with a necklace he'd made, just like the one in the picture!! but only he couldn't find any red paper so he used purple!! Oh How Sweet!! I love my little man!!

Bad picture I'm ready for bed--but the best necklace ever!!
Necklace from Lia Sophia

O Christmas Tree

Having Fun Decorating the Tree!!
----Cheese---- I know compared to most of you we're super late at getting the tree up & decorated, but hey I'm still within the first week of December so I'm doing good!! We had to go borrow some ornaments from Granny Jones so our tree wouldn't have just lights on it like last year!! (I know we're losers) The boys had a good time decorating!(notice all the ornaments on the bottom) We love it and think the boys did an awesome job!! A big thanks to Granny for making the boys day extra fun!!

Christmas Count Down!!

Christmas 2007-Last Years Creation!! If any of you are looking for a fun way to count down the days till Christmas with your kiddies, this is lots of fun!! You just decide what you want to create and each day you add on something to your picture, for example on days 1,2 & 3 you would do the big snowballs for the snowman's body, on day 4 the top hat, on day 5 maybe the stick arms! and so on. It's fun to watch their little imaginations at work, this year Dillon is building Santa and Degan is building a Christmas Tree, I'll post the progress in a few days. Enjoy the Holidays!!
