Almost Christmas!!

Well I decided that I better get do a post before Christmas, so here are a few pictures of us getting ready! Hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas!

We decided to get some new stockings, and every year we will buy a new patch to put on them. This year Justin got a Lightning MaQueen patch and Addi got ladybugs.

A tradition that we did as kids... Advent calendars.

Santa came to visit our ward, We couldn't get Justin to go see him but he still got some candy. Addison just woke up so we ran up to Santa before he left so we could get a picture of her with him for her first Christmas.

Roswell had a light parade, there weren't very many and it wasn't very long but I love looking at Christmas lights so I thought that it was worth it:)! This was the best one!

We got our Christmas decorations out the weekend after Thanksgiving... I couldn't wait!!!

Justin with his new ornament... yes a dinosaur!

Addi with her first Christmas ornament.

Every Year Justin helps with the star.

It Snowed

It Snowed!!!.............. In Roswell NM.............. we got about 3 inches of snow and it has lasted about 4 days on the ground so far. It has actually been freezing here. Last Saturday night it was 10 degrees at 11 at night when we got out of walmart. Brrrrrr.(keep in mind thats Cold for here. not like up in Idaho.)

So the fist pic is of Josh, Justin and Addison, and Bolt. That was our new dog that followed us hom last friday and stayed with us for the weekend. he is a siberian husky and we think white german shepard mix he was a REALLY good dog, but unfortunatly, the owners wanted him back(well sort of, they didn't even know he was gone until late saturday night and he got out thursday night. And well thats a whole nother story.) anyhoo... Jessi and the kids went to the park just around the corner from our house and played in the snow, it was on my lunch hour so i got to play for a minute.

Addi was freezing and Justin couldn't get enough
Weeeeeeeeeeee. "Again Mom"
Isn't Addi Adorable
Justin all bundled up ready for fun in the Snow.

Sorry the video is sideways, I have a habit of taping it the wrong way. This is Justin singing and to Blues Clues. (notice his notebook and pencil!). I love at the end how he just stops completely! Oh and a helpful tip, scroll down to the bottom of our page and pause the music so you can hear these.

Okay to explain this one, Justin has a play fishing pole that he plays with in the tub, and he is pretending to catch me with it, sooo I am doing a lot of squeaking and hollerin which Addi just thought was hilarious. Sorry I am soooooo loud in the back round.

T-Rex and Ladybug

This year Justin dressed up as a T-Rex, if anyone doesn't know, Justin's... umm infatuation, is dinosaurs! He loves them, anything about them, he absolutley loves! Anyways, Addison was a Ladybug, but I called her a Lovebug because of the hearts on her costume. We went trunk or treating and then to a few houses on Grandma and Grandpa's street and got a bunch of candy, Justin was lovin it! Daddy even decided to get a little dressed up.

Trunk or Treating with the 2 wards in Roswell, but lots of people came... and needless to say we ran out of candy fast!

Ready for some candy!

I love his cheese face!

Getting ready for Halloween

So here are a few pictures of us getting ready for Halloween.

Justin got to us markers and stickers on his pumpkin (which is why he's shirtless:)). He was so proud of his work.

Eastern New Mexico Fair

Let me just start off by saying that this fair was no where near as good as the blackfoot fair, but Justin had SOOOO much fun and that made it fun for mommy and daddy! Justin has always been afraid of rides, even the little rides in the middle of the mall. Josh and I were determined to get him to ride something, so I told him that I would go with him on the Carousel. We were going to get our tickets when Justin saw this Dragon ride and said "Iwant to go on the Dragons!" OK, so daddy went on it with him, from then on he was hooked!

He named the Zebra Stripes, anyone seen Racing Stripes?

Addi was so good and patient!

Soooo Busy!

Between packing, moving, taking care of kids, finding a place to live, work, moving again, Blessing, and then chicken pox we have been so busy, so we are a little behind on our posts... not to mention that we didn't have internet up until last week. So here are a FEW posts to catch up.

4th of July in Nampa
Justin helping mom cook (this is our kitchen in our new place.) Sorry I forgot to flip the picture before I posted it... I'm (Jessi) still trying to figure out how to do it.

Our "pearls" :)

I love my big boy so Much!

Chicken Pox

Our poor Baby Addison got the chicken pox. It was awful! I think that that is one of the worst things to have to do as a mom is to watch my kids be sick and really not be able to do anything for them except for trying to make them as comfortable as possible until they get better. Which really how comfortable can you be with the chicken pox?! People say that it is better for kids to get them when they're younger... well I'm not sure it was any better for her to get them at 3 months rather then say 3 years. From the time of her first spots to the time that they were all healed was about 2 weeks and she was miserable, she couldn't sleep and she was so ichy. At 3 months you can't really explain to her that they will go away soon and that you will feel better and please baby try not to scratch. But we did make it through and thankfully Josh or Justin (neither one has ever had chicken pox) didn't get them!

Addison's Blessing

We finally had Addi's Blessing!! We decided that we would wait until we moved to have her Blessing so that some of our Family could be there. It was a Beautiful Blessing and Addi looked so precious in the dress that Grandma made her. We are so Blessed to have Addison in our Family, we all love her so much!

Justin was wanting to play... not take pictures, so this is the best we got!
