4 Silly Nuts That I Absolutely Adore!

I am pretty sure this exceeds the weight limit for this crib!  But it's our last, if it breaks oh well!  They sure had fun hanging out in it together! 
 Elle does not like the cow!  Can you tell?  I love Chick-fil-a! 
But I love these 4 kiddos more!

Jazz Game

One of the biggest perks in Keith's job is the fabulous tickets he gets.  Over the years we've been to concerts, plays, all types of sporting events, professional bull riding, Disney on ice, etc.  Recently he scored some seriously great tickets to the Jazz game.  There was a nice V.I.P. dinner before hand and then we watched the game from these fabulous seats!  Second row under the basket.  I'm talking about the black folding chair seats on the floor!  We seriously could have thrown our popcorn at the players bench, we were that close!  We even entered the arena from below.  We walked right past the locker room! It was pretty fun!  We even made the news!  A shot of us talking behind the players as they warmed up! 
 BTW Gordon Hayward is my favorite player!  Isn't he adorable!  I love how clean cut and innocent he looks compared to all the other tattooed players!  I got a high five from him as they were leaving the court! 
Go Jazz!

Junior Company

Hannah was invited to be on a competitive dance team this year.  She does jazz, ballet and lyrical dance.  They are a cute group of girls.  They did an amazing number to some music from Planet of the Apes.  I think she's very talented!  It's been a big dedication of time (and money)! :)  We are proud of her!  Way to go Hannah!

A Christmas tree, Santa and fireworks?

It's always fun and a little challenging to decorate a new house for the holidays!  We did not have to rent a boom to put up our Christmas lights! :)  Keith just used a ladder.  I think it turned out very quaint!
 Because of the lower ceilings we had to be careful when picking out our Christmas tree too! 
 We picked the perfect size!  (And shorter trees are less expensive! Bonus!)
 Our neighbor invited us to a dinner at her church and Santa came on a fire truck!  Elle was not having it! 
 Even when he wasn't holding her she still thought he was suspicious!
 Afterwards there were firework! 
 It was amazing!  I've never watched fireworks in the winter!
 Let alone when it was snowing outside! 
Very fun, very cool!

A Snowy Day

We haven't had a lot of snow this year so when we did get some, we took advantage of it! 
 Jack and Elle love to play in the front while I shovel the driveway. Jack likes to help, he even has his own shovel!  In our old house the HOA shoveled!  I miss that!  Maybe I should just learn to use the snow blower! :)
We took Elle for a ride around the circle on this sled!  Boy that was a workout! 
We were still playing when Hannah and Nick walked home from school!
Ok we played in the snow, now melt!  I'm ready for spring!

Thanksgiving 2013

First of all Jack's preschool teacher is adorable!  He comes walking out to the car with more costumes then any of my others kids did!  It always makes me smile, almost as big as he does!

My parents have started having Thanksgiving at their church building because there are just so many of us! 
 We did some fun games and crafts,
 played with toys,
 and hung out with cousins!
 Elle was excited to run around and cause chaos!
 My parents and my brother Steve holding Elle.
 The Nigbur girls.
 Griff and Jiggy.
Rub a dub dub thanks for the grub! 
It was delicious!

Just Jack!

Jack saw me making the post about Elle and asked why there weren't any pictures of him.  I dedicate this post to my sweet boy who makes me smile, laugh and cry all in the same day!  I love you Jack!

Karate, Jr. Jazz & Indoor Soccer (in that order!)

Jack started Karate.  He loves it and jumps up and down during every class with this crazy grin on his face like he's in 7th heaven.  It's hilarious to watch! 
 But at the same time he's pretty bad a%#!
Hannah has discovered that she really likes basketball.  She is currently playing on an all girls Jr.Jazz team.  She scored 6 points her first game! Maybe it's because her Dad bought her some sweet Michael Jordan high tops! :)
 Indoor soccer is a better speed for our boys as opposed to outdoor.  There is less running because the field is smaller and there is also no goalie which is a plus!  Jack scored 2 goals in one game!
 They both had very successful seasons and are starting another one soon! 
Go Team Nigbur!
