No No VaVa

This is the face I get every time I tell Avril no.

Ya, she already knows how to play the innocent baby role pretty well.
And, it works....

Choosing Hope Over Fear

I have always feared bangs ever since my mom cut some for me in fourth grade that were about 2 inches long. But no more! Yesterday I chose hope!
Hope that I wouldn't look like an idiot. And Hope won.....kind of....
Besides, I thought I might fit in a little better in Utah now. I think I just need to learn how to use a can of hairspray.

New Missionary Tactic

The other day Benny came home and said, "Mommy, you would be so proud of me. I was a missionary at school today! I told a boy that Heavenly Father is real!" I then replied, "Benny, that's great! How did you tell him?" This is where I made the mistake. I should have just left it alone and never asked any details of the story. Then I could have told this wonderful story of Benny spreading the gospel at school.

Here is the real story according to Benny:

I was playing basketball with Jayden and I kept knocking the ball out of his hands so that I could throw the ball. Jayden got really mad at me and said that if I do that again he will never play with me EVER! So I told him that Heavenly Father is real and that He is really mad at Jayden for saying that to me.
Do you think the missionaries should start using this angle?

A Little Catching Up

I will start with our Thanksgiving weekend
We started the food fest with cinnamon rolls. Needless to say, we were stuffed before Thanksgiving dinner even started!
Next we had the First Annual Henderson Family Wii Fit Turkey Bowl
We competed in five different events Do I even need to say who won??
Then, we got the kids all cleaned up

And we were ready to eat

Did I mention that we just ordered our dinner from Safeway this year? (Sorry Mom and Dad! I better not even mention the paper plates. I don't think my dad could take it!)

A fun time was had by all none the less!
Happy VERY belated Thanksgiving!

The More the Merrier Right?

It all started with this toy dog. Hannah wanted it for Christmas mainly because of a LAME commercial with the happy girl and her "pet" dog. What the commercial neglected to show was




We just knew that if we shelled out 175 bucks for this dog, it would break in about three days because of someone trying to ride it, or take a bath with it.

But it got us thinking...........what if we pulled off a HUGE surprise and got the kids one of these

That's right. A REAL cat!
So Ray and I went to the pound about two weeks before Christmas and picked up this sly guy.

The workers at the pound said that it would be better if we got two of them so that they can play together. (I am sure there was no ulterior motive in that comment) Either way we were suckered and also picked up this little gal.

The cats stayed a secret all the way up until Christmas day!

The kids just LOVE them

We can't wait to see all the wonderful lessons our kids will learn from being pet owners.

Where have I been?

So things got a little crazy lately and my blog has suffered for it....

We have just been letting it all hang out..

Hmmm, maybe this is where the stomach flu came from?

So much to tell....where do I start?

How about this, a post a day Monday through Friday all January. (I love how I act like their are people out there biting their nails waiting for the next post to appear, when really this is all to help soothe my blogging guilt!)

Regardless of the reason, I am doing it!

See you tomorrow!
