happy holidays

It's been over a month since I have touched this site and I am sorry that I am being such a slow poke... here are some pictures of the recent festivities.

Festival of trees- Thanksgiving weekend. Ava is OK sitting on Santa's lap but Emma is very concerned. She was out of there as soon as she possibly could be.

Emma likes to look at Santa but don't make her get too close. Jeremy and AvaThis was the girls at the ward Christmas party. This was a stretch for them to get this close to Santa.
Grandpa Troy and Emma Aunt Jaycee and Emma
Uncle Dallas, Jeremy, and Emma playing with Emily's itouch. It was all the rage.

Grandma Foster and the twins

Grandma Michele and Emma

Papa Troy and the girls trying to nap. Their sleeping schedule is always so off when we go on vacation. My dad used to do this with my sisters when they wouldn't take naps on Sunday afternoon.

Emma thought the finger nail polish was lip gloss. Surprisingly she only got most of it on her face and not on her clothes. She was sitting on my lap when she opened it and it probably took me a whole minute to notice.

Aunt Emily (Emmamie) and the girls reading their favorite book about puppies.

Utah State basketball game- the girls were able to ride on a bus, see the Aggie bull, run around and watch a basketball game. They were sure tired by the end of the night.

I didn't get any pictures on Christmas eve. After dinner Ava and Emma were playing and Ava had a seizure. It was her first one it lasted 3 minutes. We rushed her to the ED at Logan Regional. She acted fine afterwards but she wasn't very happy with the IV start, CT scan, or the straight cath for a urine analysis. We usually play chimes on Christmas Eve at Grandma Moser's house and I hear Emma did a great job leading the group. So it was kind of a late start Christmas morning (8 a.m.) but I woke up to find my stocking with a note from Santa apologizing that he could fit my Escalade into his sleigh. Sigh... I must have been a really good girl. But I did get some scratch lottery tickets and I won... the satisfaction of scratching them. Wahoo!

Ava and Emma pile of presents. The cowboy bear was from the ED the night before.

Mom and Dad's tree and look at all the gifts!

Jaycee and Emily

Michele in those cute pink pajamas.

I think she is having a better day.
The girls received these cute little princess air mattresses. They love to lay on them.

Dad just finished hooking up the hot tub and boy did we enjoy it. The girls loved it too.
The girls in the hot tub. It was sure cold. When I got out my hair had icicles in it. brrrr.

Whew! Now we are home enjoying the snow. I posted a Christmas morning clip on youtube if you want to take a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zswbqKQzNg
Happy Holidays!
