We all love this time of year at the Jones house, with the holiday spirit in the air we all seem to be a little nicer to each other or it might be the constant reminder from Mom & Dad that Santa doesn't bring presents to naughty little boys!! Well whatever it might be the month of December is a lot more pleasant! Despite the few threats we made Santa found us and brought all the kids fun things to ride outside! We also decided to get the kids a swing set and spent the next three days after Christmas setting it all up but the funny thing is that it showed up a week before the big day so we covered it with blankets in the garage and they thought it was a swimming pool or maybe they were hoping it was a pool! I don't think they were to disappointed they've had fun playing together outside!! Merry Christmas!!

We all know how much Granny loves Christmas and how she shops all year long to find just the right things for all her grand kids, this is a huge undertaking with 23 kids to shop for but she never disappoints and the kids love every minute! Thanks Mom for another fun party!

I know I say it every year but I seriously can't believe my baby is a "3" year old. When & how did this happen? It just doesn't seem like that much time has passed. We have all enjoyed having Dusty around he makes us laugh with the funny faces he makes and how he likes to blame everything on Degan and we all love how he raps and dances!! Ever since the boys had their parties in Oct. all Dustin has talked about is a Spiderman party with a Spiderman cake!! So after we got done making cookies we ate some tacos than some cake & ice cream and watched Shrek!! Happy Birthday Dusty.

Shumway gave them all cupcakes and whoever got the candy cane in their cupcake was the King or the Queen for the day and Dillon got it!! So he got to sit in the "King's" chair all day and at the end of the day at the class party they got stuck in a blizzard and stayed warm by a fire and ate snow cones! Then they raced to build snowmen with toilet paper and all the fun clothes you need to make a snowman!! Than last they filled their bellies with yummy snacks!!

Neighbor friends are the very best friends to have, when your bored and need something to do all you have to do is run down the street and get your playmate and wah-la an afternoon of fun!! Degan & Kylen have become best buddies this last year, they love to watch YouTube, ride bikes, and play for hours outside together! McKell or Houdini, she is always escaping from her house and likes to come visit us! We have loved living by the Brown's and are sad that they are moving, we're all hoping the new neighbors will be as good as the Brown's they have big shoes to fill!!

a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation,
[from Medieval Latin grātitūdō, from Latin grātus grateful]
I love this time of year it somehow makes me remember all the good things in life and I really do have so much to be grateful for! I'm grateful for healthy & happy kids, they bring a smile to my face everyday with the silly things they say and do and they make the Holidays so much fun! I'm grateful for a husband that has a job and who works hard to provide for his family and I'm grateful for family & friends who are there for whatever is needed. Happy Turkey Day!!

|Best Day Ever!!|
|Wow look at all those people!!|
What a special day yesterday was and to get to share it with your cousin/best friend! How lucky are you? It was pure torture for you to have to wait around until 4:00p.m, but all that waiting was definatly worth it, I think you rather enjoyed your baptism day and being the center of attention! You are lucky to have such a wonderful family and to have so many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends & Grandparents that love you and wanted to be here to witness yours & Bailee's baptism. I noticed you smiled a lot and I hope that was because you were happy that you decided to be baptized. Dad was a little nervous but did an amazing job and I too hope that you do stay close to your Heavenly Father and gain a strong testimony. Aunt Bonnie talked about the Holy Ghost and the importance of listening to the still small voice. I hope you always remember this day and know how much Dad & I Love You.----Mom

Soon after Degan started preschool Darin made a deal with him that as soon as he learned how to write his name all by himself he'd go get him a banana split!! After lots of work on that darn "e" in his name he finally earned his sweet treat! We are so proud of you!!

|Special Agents D & T|
Hunter-Karli-Brittnee-Kayla on their way to Italy!!
|Filling their bellies at "Indulge Cafe"|
|Trying to solve a clue|
|Enjoying his present from Mom & Dad!|
We had a lot of fun planning Dillon's spy party this year, We kept everything a secret from Dillon so he could enjoy his party a long with his friends! We had the 007 music playing as I greeted the kids, then they went and had to "Spy" hidden pictures in the highlights magazine, Special Agent D came and swore them in and notified them that a briefcase had been stolen and they were called here to retrieve it!! They had to solve a picture puzzle that said "Go to the land of Pizza" and they received plane tickets to Italy! They all ran down stairs to the movie room where I greeted them and thanked them for choosing US Air and handed out popcorn and water as they watched "How to train your dragon" on the way to Italy, Once the flight was over there was a clue hidden in the plane for them to go to "Indulge Cafe" and fill their bellies and the waiter was the secret contact and at the end of the meal they were instructed to say "Pizza Pizza Pizza" and the waiter gave them a puzzle with a picture of a cell phone and a number to call a secret contact that told them to go to "Gotham City" for the next clue! Hidden under a bunch of Lego's was a box with a color coded clue that they had to put in order of the rainbow. The rainbow clue led them to the ping pong table where they had to find the ping pong ball with a tool to pick the lock to the bathroom, In the bathroom was a clue written backwards so they had to hold it up to the mirror to read it! Than they had to find a Junie B. Jones book and turn to page 62 for the next clue which was a numbered alphabet that led them back down to the gym to retrieve the stolen briefcase that held all the party favors for the kids!! The last mission was to go enjoy some cake & ice cream for a job well done!! I think they all had a good time especially at the cafe they had a little to much fun bossing the "waitress" around!! and Dillon didn't want the party or the day to end, until next year-Happy Birthday I can't believe I have an eight year old!!
P.S. notice our newly paved driveway, no more muddy mess when it rains YAY!!
