Sydney Dec '14


We didn't take too many pic's this month of Sydney.  But she sure liked this month.

Here's the pic's we took of our beautiful girl.
 

Here is some things she made at school.

Playing video games.
Silly girl for not wearing warmer clothes, but she kept saying she was hot - crazy girl!

Got the Christmas tree and other decorations up.  Our kids are so excited!  Caden just keeps walking by the tree and saying this tree is so great!  Sydney was excited to see our elf Pixie again.

Had an interesting conversation with Sydney last night. She was upset about our dog Dodger chewing up a christmas ornament she had made. So we discussed about how when we go to heaven and how none of these worldly possessions will be coming with us, but our families/pets will be there with us. That it was O.K. to be upset or sad, but not to dwell on it too much. It was kinda a big conversation to have with a child, but it helped her. And it gave her a sense of what is important in life - at least a little bit. But it was surreal to try and help her understand the bigger picture.
Comments:
Jasmine Heath - What a great mother
Kris Kemp-Erickson - I don't know about that, but thank you.

Merry Christmas everyone! We had a great Christmas morning! The kids sure liked their presents. Now we're off to my sister's to have breakfast for lunch! Hope everyone else has had a good Christmas thus far. So blessed to have my hubby, kids and my family! Happy birthday to our Savior, so grateful for Him!

Christmas & New Year's '14


We had a great Christmas this year.  We made gingerbread cookies Christmas eve for Santa and then watched the animated Nativity (Jesus) movie, then it was time for bed.

Decorating the gingerbread cookies.
 
 Hayden ate his before I could get a pic.
 Santa's cookies, can't forget the carrots for the reindeer!

When the kids woke up, this is what they found!

Yay presents - Kids pic's!!!

Now Jason & Kris's presents!!!
Jason got lots of League of Legends gift cards this year.  Good thing he likes this game.

 The cats liked the tuna they got & the dogs liked the bones they got!

To top it off we got some snow, yay for a White Christmas!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, we sure did!  I feel so blessed to have my husband, our kids and my family.  I am ever grateful for our Savior and am so glad he has blessed us in so many ways.  Merry Christmas everyone, hope you are as blessed as I am.

Happy New Year's everyone!  I (Kris) have the flu, which is not fun at all.  The kids liked staying up late, they had fun watching movies and playing.  Our dog Dodger was afraid of the fireworks and wouldn't stop barking at them, so the 4th/24th of July should be fun (not).  Our other dog Violet doesn't mind them at all.  Let's hope Dodger gets use to them.  Hope everyone had a happy and safe night last night.  Bring on 2015, here's to hoping our dreams will come true this year - for me it would be getting the funding we're hoping for my hubby's company and getting into a house of our own.  Hope all your dreams come true too!
