Baby, It's FINALLY cold outside!

I know it sounds a little crazy to be thankful for the cold....but it's kind of nice to actually have it feel like winter! Tim and the boys started the remodel of the 'old' part of the house over the Christmas break and we are hoping our new heating unit will be in soon! It's nice to have it feel like winter OUTSIDE, not INSIDE!

Last night Dallin was helping with the remodel by working on the insulation in the attic. He forgot to step only on the trusses though, and ended up falling through the ceiling and landing on a ladder. Thankfully Kyle saw him fall and flipped over a stud loaded with nails before Dallin landed. Dallin got up, went to his room and then realized that he had injured his legs. He scuffed up his collar bone, got a bump on his head and got 17 stitches in 3 of the lacerations on his thighs. The ER doctor said to watch for him to say things that don't make sense and for any abnormal behavior. That kind of made us laugh because anyone who knows Dallin is well aware that he says things that don't make sense frequently!

Happy Birthday Tim!

I just wanted to let everyone know about the great guy I'm married to! Today is his 42nd birthday, and even though he won't be here so that we can go out to dinner or sing Happy Birthday or have cake together, I wanted to share a list of things I love about Tim:

1. He is always helping people.
2. He smiles alot.
3. He is very good at fixing things.
4. He still flirts with me.
5. He works VERY hard.
6. He is a great dad and loves his kids very much.
7. He doesn't give up.
8. He is always positive.
9. He makes everyone laugh.
10. He always wants me talk to him about what is bothering me - even if it's crazy.
11. He cooks and cleans and is always ready to help me (or to assign a kid to help me.)
12. He loves me no matter how frustrating I can be.

Christmas 2008

Our Christmas was great! Especially the quilt from my mom (see post below).

Kirsten really got into opening gifts, even though she had to wake up at 5:30 AM!

I used to make an ornament every year for each child - I decided to restart the tradition and made these this year

Hayleigh playing the new Wii. She really gets a workout when she plays! (notice the wallpaper in the back - it's slowly being torn off and thrown away.)

The doll bunkbeds that Tim and Tyler made for the girls.
