Here is our Christmas fun in no particular order. Building snow forts, gingerbread houses and Christmas morning which Olivia slept through most of. It was our best Christmas yet we had so much fun being at home this year. Probably going to run into some problems one day with the clock in the picture of our Christmas tree before the kids saw it but until they learn to tell time we're good. They had so much fun opening their gifts and Dylan saying "oh I can't believe it", and "Santa remembered", and Connor with "this is what I was waiting for". Christmas's are getting more and more fun every year with these kids, they are so crazy but pretty fun too. Almost every night Connor asks me if Santa is going to come again and bring him more presents, it will be a long 2010 at this rate.

Here she is on her first day of life. Olivia Claire arrived December 12th at 11:16pm. Weighing in at 7lbs 13oz and 21 in long she is officially our runt, and we couldn't be happier about it. She is an amazing baby. She is super mellow and a beautiful baby. We can't stop staring at her. She rarely cries and her brothers are so in love with her. Dylan of course is a good help, he wants to hold her and then he's done after about 30 seconds. But he needs to know where she is all the time. If he can't see that I'm holding her he asks where she is. Connor on the other hand could hold her all day. He can't walk by her without stopping to kiss her head and say "Hi baby girl". He's always telling me "our baby girl is so cute". And I have to agree. She is lucky to have these big brothers, for now anyway. :) We are all doing well, just trying to adjust to a life with another member among us. I must say everyone is doing a remarkable job. Kenny is the best help EVER. Cooking, Laundry, I did nothing but hold my new baby for the first week of her life. Kenny gets up with the boys, gets them ready and off to school, feeds them and plays with them. He's the best, I consider myself a lucky woman to have him.

I don't even know how many different posts I just did. I had over 500 pictures so I just picked a few and here it is. The last of our time in Kansas City, (we're home YAY!! Kenny doesn't get to come home for another 9 days though)and some stuff when we got home. We had a Rees family reunion in Loa that most of my family made it to. We had a good time swimming and parading and just hanging out.Then we went to Capitol Reef and let the kiddos run around a bit. It was too hot and I'm too prego to do much hiking but it was really beautiful there and the kids had a good time chasing lizards around anyway. Good times.
We got to spend the last part of our time in Kansas City with Janae and Kolbie. Connor is OBSESSED with Kolbie, thinks she's the best thing ever. Hopefully that will carry over to his own baby sister. But I'm pretty sure I am Kolbie's favorite person. (ok I'll exclude her parents for courtesy :))
