And it had a big bogger in it, but my mom would't let me eat it.

So the other day we are getting ready for church. Ellie just got out of the bath and I was drying her off when I noticed something bluish green way up in her nose. At first I thought it was just conditioner (it was the same color) so I thought no big deal I'll just pinch it out. It was then I noticed that it was a little hard lump and not slimy conditioner. I called Ken to examine the new found color up her nose and he to was a bit puzzled to what it could be. We questioned Ellie what she might have put up her nose and she said nothing at all which usually is a pretty good guess she knows something and does not want to share with us her secrets. After a few minutes of probing tweezers up there we pulled out a tiny little Polly Pocket shoe and nicely tugged up inside was this nasty booger in it. So the day after Ellie is playing with her friend Jasmine and I hear Ellie telling her all about the Polly Shoe with the booger in it and then I hear Ellie say "and it had a big booger in it, but my mom would not let me eat it". I was laughing so hard, I mean what kind of mom am I?

Dear Santa

Tonight we took the girls to the mall to see Santa. They were really excited and were on their best behavior, they even let me take a few pictures of them in front of the tree (and no one cried).

Dear Santa,
I would like a Nintendo DS for Christmas because my mom and dad said they are to expensive and they will not buy me one. I would also like a phone, but my mom says NO WAY!! I have been really good this year and have done good in school, I help my mom out alot and try to be nice to my sisters.
Thank you Santa so much, I also want you to know that I still believe.
Love, Maci
Dear Santa,
I think I have been good this year, well today I was really good. I am getting bigger and would like a Barbie house that has three stories and an elevator in it. I also love Barbie and the Diamond Castle stuff. I promise I will share with my sisters and give them more love.
Love, Ellie
Dear Santa,
Presley loves anything that has to do with babies, she is our little mommy and loves to hold and rock her babies. Thanks Santa.
Love, Presley

The other day we got a good snow storm that came through. I was busy running around the house cleaning things up and then noticed that it was really quite inside. Uhmm where can everyone be? Ken and the girls were busy outside making a snow man, poor little snow man he looks a little on the sad side but the girls loved him.

Thanksgiving Weekend

I know, I know it is almost Christmas and I am finally putting up the Thanksgiving pictures. The last few weeks, ok a few months I just feel so completely swamped. I would like to say "Hi" to my friends and family because I feel so out of the loop lately. UGH where does the time go?

So with out further ado here are some long awaited pictures.

For Thanksgiving we went to Utah and stayed with Ken's side of the family. It was so much fun watching the girls play with all of their cousins, that is one thing that is hard for us is not having all the cousins close by. Ken and I both grew up living close to our cousins and we wish that for the girls.

Now how sad am I? I have no pictures of our Thanksgiving feast that was so good, not even any pictures of that day (pathetic).

The day after we went up to the Ogden area to see my sister and her cute little family. We went to Kent's parents house and hung out with them. I loved it because we went shooting. Kent's family has alot of land and in the backyard we shot some shot guns at clay pigeons.

So I have learned that there better be a grocery store near by with freshly packaged meat because I could not shoot anything if my life depended on it.

Now with that being said these next pictures may scare you.

This is Ken and I shooting our guns and see all those targets in the sand, I would like to lie just a little bit (so play along with me) I hit everyone of those targets. One day maybe I can actually say that.

Back at Kents family's house the girls had so much fun. There is this huge horse pasture in the backyard and the girls got to ride a motorcycle around.

Presley was so cute just walking around and trying not to fall in any horse poop, Grandpa Meador kind-of gave her a lesson to watch out and not step on any.

On Saturday we went to the church for a huge Prestwich side reunion. The kids once again had so much fun running around with all the cousins. They made these adorable ginger bread houses made out of milk cartons and Santa even came to see if they are being naughty or nice.

And my favorite picture of the whole trip is Ellie with her Great Grandma Kenna, who Ellie just fell in love with all over again. The two of them were so cute with each other reading books together and Ellie and Grandma Kenna even pretended to shoot each other (I know it sounds like an awful game to play with you great grandma but it was so cute watching them)
