Tytan's Candy Necklace

So we got our Valentine package from Grandma and Papa Mason yesterday and the kids were too excited. They couldn't wait to pull out everything and see what they had got. Well Tytan's favorite find was a candy necklace. Now mind you this was not just any candy necklace it was like a 3 foot long candy necklace. Well we had been in the kitchen a little while when I hear his new favorite phrase, "Oh my dosh mom, oh.... my.... dosh." I turn around to find this.

Free at last! And please don't comment on the hair. We were having a bad hair day:)

Of course he is in his shorts!

Lloyd's family all was able to come down for the holidays and it was so fun. They stayed with us a couple of days and we partied like rock stars. Lloyd made his world famous turkey for Christmas Eve and it was sooooooo yummy! He has turned into quite the little chef. Isn't it pretty! Everything was super good and it definitely started off the holidays right!

Ok Dad, don't kill me for this picture. I think you look cute!

My crew and Lexy's two little ones in their Christmas Eve PJ's.
The best part about this was that Tytan figured this out before he even unwrapped it and was hopping around on it wrapping and all! Didn't get that shot though :(

Our True Blue Cougars Fan

I promise he is not abused.

I think that we have found the new musician in the family.

Cooking Classes

Well, I am following in my big sister's footsteps and started doing cooking classes for the wee ones. We have so much fun! I have about 15-20 students each time (not all in one class!) and I teach them basic cooking technics along with making yummy new foods for them to try, and give their little taste buds a new adventure. I do it one day a month a have a couple classes throughout the day. It is fun being able to share my talents while playing!

Road Trip 101

When you go on as many road trips as we do, it is vital that you become one with nature. On our way to Cali for Brooke's wedding these two had no problem pulling off of the side of the road and giving this tire a renewed sense of purpose as target practice started. McKenna and I just longingly stared wishing it were that simple.

Kenna Benna turns 7

I can't believe that time really does fly by as fast as they tell you it will. It just seems like I was in the hospital a couple of years ago having our first special blessing enter into our lives. McKenna has been such a blessing to our home. She arrived on November 16, 2001, 7:39 at night weighing 7 lbs 11.2 oz. And we were positive that she was the most beautiful thing that we had ever seen. (Our opinion may have been slightly jaded :) But she has turned into a babe!

McKenna had a super spa party with a bunch of her friends from the neighborhood. They went on a scavenger hunt, played musical present, made bath salts, opened presents and had yummy cupcakes. McKenna is such a good friend and it shows by how many happy faces are surrounding her.

Small family party at home with just our little crew.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl! We Love You!

I know.... I know

For all of you who keep yelling at me about updating my blog.... I am officially sorry that I have been such a slacker. The holidays were a little crazier than normal and I haven't been good a good girl, I know! But I promise when I do upload my pics it will be lots. SO BE READY!!!!!
