The Grandkids:)

Emilee made the shirts and onesies for all the Grandkids and they turned out sooooo cute. My only sadness is everyone is bare foot except Ruth.
Left to Right and Oldest to Youngest: Olivia, Naomi, Bella (John and Emilee's), Quinn (Dave and Lauren's), Ruth (Ours), Maddie (also Em and John's:)

Christmas Vacation So Farth

Despite the rain Disneyland was AWESOME!!!!!!!! We rigged a poncho over Ruth's stroller so this was how she looked through he head hole.
First time in a regular stroller.
Small World was SO pretty! The park really was decked in all it's Christmas finery.
The Fantasy Land Castle.
Ruth apparently didn't want Maddie holding her hand. Maddie's 2 months younger.

Are Violent Video Games Preparing Kids For The Apocalypse?

Some of you may have seen this before but I thought it worthy of replay.

Hallelujah!!!! (I spelled that correctly on my first try:) Ruth took 3 naps yesterday and went to bed at 6:30pm-6:30am. My sanity is slowly being restored. However. Mike stayed up approximately 36 hours strait so he could level up his character in W.O.W. and then proceeded to shove me off the bed all night. I finally got up and went to his side of the bed which actually worked but he did make some grumbly protests when I took one of the four pillows from him and some blanket. Apparently he just wanted my spot and all the pillows. This will be forgiven if he concedes to sleep on the couch if he ever attempts it again.

Heartache at the Anderson's

Ruth absolutely lost her mind today!!!! She won't take naps, won't play on the floor pleasantly for longer than 5 minutes and insists on crying over EVERYTHING. She doesn't have a temp. and isn't paying attention to her ears so that rules out an ear infection. Her gums aren't a different color than normal and their still smooth so I don't think she's teething. PMS is also ruled out and she's supposedly past the Purple Crying stage. The only conclusion I can come up with is that her heart has been broken by a cruel infant boy. It must have happened at church. I saw Caleb eyeing her yesterday in Relief Society. It doesn't matter that he's 3 months younger than her. Mike's younger than me so I don't judge. And I can't confront him about it cause he's never alone.

Truthfully this has been going on for about a me.

This excludes Molly, Brooke, Becky, Dari, Ashley, Debi and Emilee who have all posted recently.


Well....Thanksgiving was so great!!! The stuffing and pies were good, SO RELIEVED!!! The rest of the food was also tasty. For the first ten minutes of dinner all that could be heard was a chorus of, "This is great turkey!", "Who made the yams they are sooooo good.", "Who made the stuffing? I really like it.", "I love mashed potatoes. Good job!" and so on... and on....and on. We couldn't help ourselves. When you're normally not the one doing the cooking for a very important food consuming tradition and lots of other people are going to eat stuff they'd rather have their Mom make it puts a lot of pressure on a girl! So when it goes so well you have to talk about it for a lonnnnnng time:) The end.

Mike is just about finished with school to his, mine and Ruth's relief! One more semester behind us HURRAY!!!! He mentions every once in a while that the new version of WoW (World of Warcraft for those of you not plagued with this computer game) is coming out in a few days....which causes him to spontaneously salivate. The end.

Ruth is a crack up as usual. She now growls on a semi-regular basis and baby garbles to. LOVE IT!!!!! What I don't love is being woken up everyday at 6:30. There's no reason to set alarms when you have your very own rooster:) The end.
