Snowball Fight

Tonight when Brian got home from work, his truck was covered with snow. The kids ran out and started throwing snowballs. Payton was ruthless; he attacked Brian. They were both drenched. Cole couldn't stop laughing.

Winter Wonderland

Yes, you are seeing SNOW in Las Vegas! It started raining this morning and turned into snow a few hours later. The boys had a blast throwing snow balls and catching snow flakes on their tongue. Cole wasn't quite sure about the snow at first. This was his first experience with the white stuff. Now he loves it.

Happy to Have Dad Home

Last week Brian had to go to California for work. The kids and I missed him so much! He came home just in time for the weekend. We spent all weekend together playing and getting ready for Christmas. We love our Dad!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Thursday night Payton's school had a little party at Barnes and Noble. The boys got to make reindeer candy canes and visit with Santa.
Friday night was our ward Christmas party. The boys got to see Santa again. Cole thinks Santa is his new best friend and keeps asking to go back to the book store or church to see Santa.
Cole's wish list: Indiana Jones Whip
Payton's wish list: Star Wars Toys, Wii games, Martian Maker... and on and on.

Christmas Lights

Our family loves to go look at Christmas lights. Our favorite bright spot is in my cousins neighborhood. Every house is decorated with different cartoon characters. We bundled the kids up in warm clothes and wandered the street.

The kids were so excited to have the Sundell's come with us. Cole told Santa what he wanted for Christmas.
Merry Christmas!

Hospital Stay

I guess we haven't spent enough time at hospitals this year. Cole had another breathing problem. He had been sick for a few days and was having his breathing treatments. December 1st, he started having trouble breathing so I took into the doctor and they immediately admitted him to the hospital. Luckily, he wasn't quite as bad as last March. He only had to stay three days. We were so happy that Mandy and Greg were staying with us. They helped take care of Payton while Brian went to work and I stayed with Cole.
My poor little guy. He was so brave. All the nurses and doctors were so good to him. They made sure he had plenty of Popsicles and stickers and little toys to help distract him.
He is doing so much better now. We just have to continue giving him breathing treatments everyday until summer.
