We're Here!

Hi everyone! We have arrived safely in Texas, after a 2 day drive totalling 24 hours of drive time! The kids were amazing. No potty accidents or tantrums! We got to Fox's parents house at around midnight on Sunday. Cash and Cosette were so happy to be out of the car that they were doing cartwheels and backflips. Okay, they were running (or crawling) around in circles! Thank you to everyone who helped us get here successfully (you know who you are!). We appreciate it so much.

I have to say, I am so glad we are in Texas right now. When we left Logan, it was 13 degrees. It is over 50 degrees here! Just taking the kids outside without coats and hats and gloves is so awesome. Please pray that the weather in Utah is good when we had back this weekend.

We love you and will update some more when we get back. Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday, Fox!

Dear Fox,
Your birthday came recently. (I won't name when or how old you are, since you are concerned about privacy). This was a very memorable birthday. It all started when we dragged the kids out in the snow to drive to Sam's Club to pick up their huge cheesecake you have been wanting. Turns out, they no longer stock those cheesecakes. No biggie, I decided to make you one.
You went out to lunch with your friends. Turns out, your car wouldn't start afterwards. Your afternoon of hanging out with your friends and family turned into an afternoon of trying to fix your car.
When you came home, you were presented with a giant homemade cheesecake and got so excited. Turns out, the cheesecake was beautiful on the outside but totally gooey on the inside. (Curse you, wonky oven!) No biggie, you had ice cream instead.
Later on, you helped bathe the kids and had so much fun. After the bath, when Coco was taken out, turns out she was pushing out a "biggie" at that moment, which somehow got flung about the bathroom when we tried to have her sit on the toilet to finish. No biggie, you cleaned it up.
You ended the day smiling and having an excellent day after all. Wow. You really are growing up. Here's to a memorable year!

We love you!!

Blogger is finally letting me upload pictures! I've been trying for weeks! We had a great Thanksgiving at Charlie's. His house is so fun! Fox had a blast helping Charlie build the floor on his house addition. Cash and Cosette were in complete heaven with all the animals. The food was excellent. Good times!
Looking at the pictures, I just realized I got more pictures of animals than people--oops!
Matthew showing Cosette his bunny. Coco screamed with glee!

Matthew's other bunny playing dead...pretty funny!

Okay, I need to just keep a big post-it on my camera that says: Take pictures of family! Next time!
