Christmas and Catching Up

We had our first ever school program. Lukas sang with LOTS of gusto can you tell? We were so proud he actually sang!

Our Christmas this year started out going to Afton, Wy to see Spencer's Grandma and Grandpa Bagshaw. It was a super short visit but so nice to see them. Then we headed back to Soda Springs for a Bagshaw Christmas. We were thrilled to have Grandma Rae, Justin, Heather and Ryan and their baby Bennett and ofcourse mom and dad with us this year. We learned a lot about Kowati's (LOL that is a good story) and "Ornery old men" (that is an even better story) but best of all we made memories and shared laughs that will stay with us forever.

Bowen and Bennett Christmas Eve! They will be partners in crime someday soon!

Christmas Eve Dinner YUMMY!

Our Nativity- I finally got the picture I wanted ALL SEASON!

Jesus probably didn't have a bright blue pacifier though! LOL.

Our favorite Christmas Elves! Grandpa showing off Bowen in his Xmas Eve pj's.

Christmas morning lining up...TRADITION!

Discovering what Santa left...Lukas got Hot Wheels Trick Tracks

and MaKynzee got Disney Fairies...

Later playing with presents. I painted MaKynzee's nails and then I let her paint was Christmas after all but I think my facial expression says it ALL...

Bagshaw Beauties

Watching Lukas' capsule dinosaurs grow...

MaKynzee's favorite, showing off her dress ups!

We had such a great time and I think the spirit of CHRISTmas was abundant. We are so very thankful for our Savior and what he did for us. The greatest gift we posses is the Atonement, that he gave His life for us. We acknowledge His hand in all things and thank our Heavenly Father for all of our family, the gospel and all the blessings we enjoy! We love you all! Merry Christmas and Have a FABULOUS NEW YEAR!!

A Sunday of All Sundays

I don't have any pictures but I have quite the story...
OK, so Sunday morning Spencer left for morning meetings and I went and got in the shower. After I showered I woke up Lukas and showered him. Gave him his clothes and told him to get dressed. Woke up MaKynzee put her in the shower. Got Lukas breakfast. Finished Kynzee's shower and got her clothes for her. Got Kynzee breakfast.
Ok church is at 0930 and it was 0840. I was doing GREAT!!!
0850 Did my hair, the kids were done with breakfast.
0900 Mom to Lukas, "Get your socks and shoes on now."
Lukas, "Mom I'll get my shoes, you get my socks."
I went and got his socks and gave MaKynzee her tights, started to feed Bowen.
0910 "Lukas, come here. Why don't you have your socks and shoes on? MaKynzee you have your tights on but where are your shoes?" MaKynzee just walked away.
L: "You never gave me my shoes." Giving me this look like duh mom!
Mom:"Excuse me? I got the socks, you get the shoes remember."
L: "No I found the socks, you had them."
I could not contain myself I busted out laughing. "Fine Luke I'll get your shoes."
Calling to the other room, "MaKynzee what are you doing? Get your shoes!"
MaK: "I can't find them."
Mom: "You better start looking harder."
0920 Lukas has his shoes and socks on. Wahoo! MaKynzee is playing with her doll house.
Mom: "MaKynzee! Where are your shoes? What are you doing?!"
MaK: "I can't find them." I gave her quite the dirty look.
She replied not missing a beat, "Mom, I'm MAD! You haven't found my shoes!"
Mom: "NO, I'm mad! Get moving we could have left now!"
0930 We found her shoes and are late for church and I have everyone lined up at the door. I open the door and it is EXTREMELY I was naked....I look down and....I was in my under ware!!! I NEVER got myself dressed I was so flustered getting everyone else ready.
I just kept thinking to myself... if it was a hot summer day how far would I have gotten?? AHHHHH. So do you think I am adjusting to life with three kids....LOL.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I tried to go to church in my undies!!!!! I told my visiting teacher I should buy a mirror and put it on the door so I make sure I was completly ready...she came to visit teach me and handed me a present saying, "Sorry I couldn't get you a mirror."

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas.
We had Bowen's 2 month check and he is a BIG boy weighing in at 10# 13oz and 23 3/4in. We have a giant amoung us.
