Christmas and stuff

We had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you all did as well.  We received a special gift from a "Secret Santa" that helped us to make Christmas special.  I made each of the kids a quillow and they really seemed to like them.  My dad made the kids treasure boxes out of wood.  They are beautiful.  He also put a little bit of money in each of their boxes. 

Today, is Craig's birthday.  Isabel (our five year old) came running to give him a birthday hug.  She gave him one of her dollar bills from her treasure box for his birthday present.  She is so cute.

I am so grateful for the kindness of others, the love of my family, and especially Our Savior Jesus Christ.  May, each of you know His love and goodness in your life.

Rizabell turns 5.

It's hard to believe but my baby is 5.  Rizabell, the nick name that arose from a 4 year old little brother who couldn't pronouce his new sisters name, is a very fiesty, bossy, energetic, social butterfly.  I know hwat you are thinking... geeze I wonder where she gets that from.  But I honestly have no idea, she certainly didn't get it from me...  I still have mine.

So the little one turned 5 today and she thought that she got to start kindergarten today.  When she got up this morning she had a back pack ready to go.  Do you have any idea how difficult it is to try to explain the concept of a school year to a very upset 5 year old.

Happy Birthday baby!
