Oh Christmas Tree oh Christmas Tree how lovely are your branches...

So we put up our tree on Christmas Eve, yeah I don't recommend moving before Christmas and putting all your stuff in a storage unit. Thankfully Brian was a great husband and went down and fished it out. Our tree was up front which we knew but the ornaments were in the very back. The unit is stuffed full practically and he had to pull a lot out to even get to it. What a GREAT GUY, Thanks Honey!! Teagan was able to help me and we decorated the tree. I love Christmas now because even Rayle is old enough to know what is going on. Christmas morning, Teagan came in and woke me up and said, "Mom, Santa came get up." Last year we had to wake the kids up and drag them down stairs. The boys had fun opening their gifts. Teagan had said he wanted a Robot for Christmas. Santa brought him a Ben 10 Creation Chamber instead. It was funny because he said, "Hey where's my robot?" I asked him if he would rather have the robot instead of the Ben 10 thing. He said no and played non stop with it all day. We had a dinner at the house and I cooked a HUGE turkey. My brother had the nerve to ask me if my grandmother had cooked it before she left and I just heated it up. I can't believe that guy!! Everything was good and we had a great time spending some time with family. On the 26th Brian's sister turned 19 and we went to Olive Garden to celebrate it with her. We had an enjoyable time there too. Today we decided to go to the Train Museum in Chandler. We had a great time and the boys had fun seeing all the different cars and tracks. Rayle also had fun jumping in the mud puddles. Thankfully he was wearing his snow boots.

The pictures of the kids and train are priceless. Jacob is infatuated with trains right now and it kinda makes me sad that Al doesn't work for the railroad anymore. It would be so cute for him to take him on the trains one day.

HAHA! I'm perusing your blog when I found this post and died of laughter! Why? Because the picture of, was it your brother?, playing with the kids, wearing the cute cape, if you look at the TV you see a man and women on it, about to "get it on"!

That's the best picture ever! I loved it!
