Christmas parties

I love Christmas and I love Christmas parties...even if we have 12 (off the top of my head).

Danny's Preschool Chirstmas Program

Santa!! Danny was so cute. He sang all of the songs so well!

Polar Express

My dad took the grandkids (and their parents) on the Heber North Pole Express. It was so much fun. We loved it.

My parents with their grandkids.

Cannon's Downtown

Our annual night downtown with my family. We saw Tangled (I loved it!), saw Santa, ate downtown, and opened Christmas pj's and stayed at the Marriot. VERY busy but still so much fun!

Christmas pj's!

Pillow fight!

Ross Christmas Party

Sam wasn't so excited about Santa. This 1st picture makes me laugh.

I guess Sarah isn't too fond of Santa either.

How Can We Be Lovers - Michael Bolton

This was the entertainment that Brian and I had tonight. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. You HAVE to watch this at least 5 times. My favorite parts are the drummer, the guy in the hot pink sport coat, how much passion Michael puts into the video, and at 3:09 when he is walking. Oh and I also love how him and the girl are suddenly laughing together.

School Pictures

I love school pictures. These were actually taken on the day after Danny's class pictures. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and realizing that school pictures had been taken that day and I had totally forgotten. You should have seen what Danny was wearing. It was awful and his hair was bushy. He usually looks nice for school but I was a little stressed that day (obviously...I forgot they were taking pictures). Anyway, I called the school the next day and they said I could bring him in for pictures with the other class. So I ran and got the boys haircuts(which were WAY too short) and got their pictures taken.

I decided to get Sam's picture too. I love it.

With the exception of Adam Levine

I am not the type of girl who likes it when a guy sings to her.
In fact, I hate it. It is SO akward and makes me really uncomfortable.

When I was in high school, I had a big crush on this cute guy. I even got a ride with him in his car to our friends house. I was so excited.
Then it happened.
We were listening to music.
It all happened so fast I didn't even get a chance to react.
He started singing to me in the car.
I froze. My eyes went wide.
This wasn't the joking, having fun singing.
This was the I am trying to sing my heart to you, please look at me, I am going to try to get you to look at me, why aren't you looking at me singing.
I didn't know what to do. I just stared straight ahead and didn't look at him. In fact I don't think I was even breathing.
Well, after about a minute of that, he turned the music off and got mad at me because I didn't look at him while he was singing to me. I think that was the last time we talked to each other.

From then on, I have continued to cringe when a guy sings to me or even if I see a guy singing to another girl.

Until one day I was listening to the Coffeehouse station on satellite radio and I heard ADAM LEVINE ( from Maroon 5) singing an accoustic version of Misery.
At that point I realized that I wouldn't mind him singing that song to me. Ok I will be honest, I think I would melt. NOT that I was imagining him singing to me or anything...
Wow Adam, you did it. Your beautiful voice has cured me of this ridiculous fear. You can sing it to me anytime you want. Maybe wait till the kids go to bed so I don't hear them screaming in the background.
Also when you are done with Misery, could you also sing Sunday Morning for me?

Now take a moment to listen to this song. You won't regret it.
