Christmas Day

Kennadee got Kit and lots of other fun things

and Ryker got his train table he has been asking for. Baby B got a Bumboo that will be a while before he can use it. But most of all we spent the day together as a family and loved it.

Christmas Eve 2009

This is the start of a new tradition the Naughty or Nice Log. It was fun we did it with a 2x4 (considering we already cut down our own Christmas tree out of the front yard....see video) it was fun you light your own candle (Jacksons was lit by proxy..aka: mom) then we all cheered on our candle (yes we really did) the last to go out has been Nice the first was naughty.

Nick won the Naughty and Jackson and Mom tied for Nice...

(Kennadee concentration very hard to make sure she wins)

Christmas Eve 2009

We decided to make a gingerbread house well that's about as far as we got with that because Santa's Elves had made a special delivery and brought the kids some jammie's. The thought that it was time for bed so we didn't stop them. Grandpa read them his favorite story "twas the night before Christmas"
(WOW...scary but this is the best one)
Grandma tucked all the kids in bed..They were in hopes Santa would be there soon.

Martin-Lund Christmas Party

(Kennadees's necklace stash)
We can't wait every year for this party. We just don't get to see family enough. This year Jim and Kristen hosted the party at their home which is always fun. The kids had so much fun playing all the games Kristen Planned. The pizza, treats, salads and pop were so tasty. The adults had a little to much fun playing dodge ball in the B-ball room. They had a fun game where you got a necklace and if you said the word"Christmas" you had to give your necklace to the person who got you to say it. The kids loved it.

The kids got some fun prizes can you tell they both had better things to do then smile for a picture.

Dodge ball and Referee Jim

These two babies are just two days apart they its so fun that each of us
have new babies this year.

(Bubba not sure if he is doing something he may get in trouble for)

(Bronson doing what he does best)

(could this picture look any worse)

Last night we went to temple square to listen to the Bountiful High Choir sing. It was great! I looked around and there were several kids in the chapel and you would have never known it was so quite....(I know my kids and quite don't go together) It was fun to see the lights and hurry home, it was a little chilly for Bronson so we didn't stay to long. Ryker and Kennadee really enjoyed throwing snowballs at daddy.

Happy Birthday MOM

(Ryker and Grandma at Costa Vida for birthday dinner)
I am so lucky to have such a great mom. She is an incredible example of who I want to be when I grow up;) I have never meet someone who is so giving and incredibly talented.(she can do anything. Plumbing, tile, decorate, cook, if you give her the chalange she will do it!)

I learn from her everyday (that's because we call each other at least 5 times a day, even if its about butter)

My mom had taught me how to have a lot of patience with Ryker, trust me you need it. I think the thing that I admire most is when we were growing up it didn't matter what she was going through she was always there for you and never said she was to busy even if she was. When my mom would get mad she would NEVER yell, she would get quite I think that was scarier than if she were to ever yell. You just new you were in trouble when mom went quite.

My mom is an amazing grandma I'm pretty sure my kids like her more than me... Grandma is always at everything for her babies and is always calling to say hi, tell them she loves them and lets them come over when she is working and draw pictures. Ryker has got the, "hello. thank you for calling Jet Blue!" down its great.

I could never say enough about this woman she is truly amazing words cant describe!

Thanks for sharing your birthday with us even if all we did was feed you!

The Square Christmas

The new square @ 2600 had a some Chirstmas fun tonight. All the stores had food, treats, hot coco and cider.

They even had a carriage ride for kids, and most important Santa! Kennadee and Ryker loved the horses they thought it was fun. They both were so excited to see Santa and ask him for some special gifts they would like from his elves.....

Keeping warm by the fire

Ryker asking for a Train

Bronson was just happy to be there

Ryker is 3!

Ryker is a "circus' most the time the kids is full speed always. I though with how active he is and how much he loves animals, balloons, and a "Midnight Magic Martin' magic show we couldn't go wrong. Winter birthday parties are hard to do but I thought it turned out pretty well considering it was snowing outside and having a 4 week old baby. I found the cutest printable party from ETSY. It was great all I had to do was print, and make one trip to Zurchers and called it good.

Ready to Party... The adults had "cafe rio" salads

Each child got there own box with chips, tickets, treats, and a drink along with their hot dogs.
And sugar, sugar, and more sugar!

Nicks cousin Whitney made this darling cake

I made these popcorn cupcakes they were fun!
(If only I had more time I would have done more than 5, oh well)

Fun candy buckets for the bar

I made shirts for the kids. The boys had elephants (Bronson was thrilled to be taking a picture) and Kennadee's was a lion t-shirt dress.

Rykers favorite present a snow shovel!

Ryker amazed at "midnight magic martin" making the coin change into a different coin.

I'm pretty sure the adults were more entertained than the kids.

As if he didn't have enough sugar about 10pm he needed some oreos.

Then about 11pm he needed a little cake fix...

I love that he has shoved all the animals in the cake.
I hope my bubba had a great birthday!


We were so "lucky" to be part of the Ward Christmas Party. As everyone entered to party we were the "nativity" We all felt like a monkey in a cage but it was fun.

The little "wiseman" couldn't get enough of "baby Jesus" and the cutest "little angel" you have ever seen.

(The other shepard couldn't attend she had to cheer at the b-ball game)
