We'll start with last Sunday....
~ I was seriously a nervous wreck thinkin Chris wouldn't make it home for Christmas because of the weather...
~ Called Chris early Monday morning so see where he was at, I'm think he should be in Flagstaff... WRONG he was already in Twin Falls (2 hours from home).... He left Sunday evening when he got off work! That 2 hour drive turned into a 7 hours. I'm so grateful he made it home safe, he was exhausted and said he didn't ever know he ever pulled "all nighters" back in the day,lol My how times have changed...
~ A 15 hour drive turned into a 23 hour drive cause the roads were so bad. They closed the border between here and Utah right after Chris went through...
~ Chris and his girlies braved the roads and the mall for some Christmas shopping on Tuesday!
~ Snow, snow and some more snow...
~ Wrapping wrapping and some more wrapping...
~ Christmas eve at the Farrells, yummy food, games and of course the opening up Christmas jammies!
~ Christmas Eve. surprise, Grandma and Papa Fogle showed up!
~ Stayed up to the weee hours being Santas helpers...
~ Christmas morning, huge smiles, lot of laughter, TONS of trash, twistie ties and cardboard cuts on the hands. Lots of playing, lounging, building an igloo, nap for the P. man, then it was time to head to the Farrells for more presents and Christmas dinner!
~ Friday, got a late start, rushed to Macy's to hopefully get an amazing deal on new pots and pans... No such luck, I had just missed the last one. Geez don't these people know that just maybe if I had pretty new pots I'd just maybe cook my family some amazing dinners?!?!
~Saturday, we had some sad kids as the Fogle G-parents hit the road trying to beat the storm, no such luck but they did make it home safely, two days later...
~ Sunday pure laziness and man that felt gooooood!
~ Monday packed up all the Christmas stuff, put the tree away, Chris took down the lights and now our home looks so bare... Took a trip to Target and the Walmart, fought the crowd to get some food! Shouldn't the crowds be done with??? Dropped the groceries inside the door and rushed to meet Melanie for a Zumba class down at the Y. If you don't know what Zumba is look for a video on youtube, the really try hard not to laugh for butts off picturing me trying to do it!! I'll just say my white girl hips don't move like that and let me just add this is the most out of the box thing I've EVER done!!
~ Today, off to Zumba again in about an hour then we're spending the rest of the day celebrating our Lexi loves 6th Birthday (her special post to follow) We'll be spending the day at kid planet, fun fun!

Miss cheeks waking up Elfie
They all just sat there in awww for a good 5 minutes!
Now Elfie is back on the shelf with good instructions from the Fogle kids to not get an anymore trouble today!
They need to take their own advice ; )
His mind is going a million miles a minute thinking up his next plan of attack, silly Elfie!

That Santa's Elf will make his appearance in the Fogle home! I'm super excited to start this new tradition! For those of you who have know idea what I'm talking about, it all stems from the "elf on a shelf" set you can buy from Halmark and basically Santa sends an elf down to "watch" over the household and then he'll report back to Santa on Christmas eve. on weather or not the kids were naughty or nice! Also the Elf gets into a little mischief at night, so you never know where he'll be in the morning or what he's gotten into through out the night! I'm gonna love this!
So here's my daily December 9th pic! Our little Elf (we'll name him tomorrow) bearing some little gifts! I can't wait to see the kids in the morning!

Isn't this what lifes all about, all snuggled up in mom and dads bed after a hot bath, watching A Charlie Brown Christmas?!?
So now I'm caught up on my picture days, hopefully by the time I post tomorrow I will have made it to the store to get batteries so I can post pics by a real camera and not my phone!

So here we are on day 4 already! I know this is nothing glamorous but in years to come I hope to look back and remember how every day Mon.-Fri I sit in front of Lexi's school, showing up at least 15 minutes early just out of fear of being late and wait to hear all her giggles as she lets me know what every kid said to her, said to each other, what her teacher said... I'll look back and remember how this month exactly Disc #1 is the kids Christmas cd and #2 is my Christmas cd, how my clock says it's 12:07 but really it was only 11:55 since my clock is for whatever reason 12 mins fast, how I just realised today that I have 3 lotions in my cup holders and I only know how 1 got there, but most of all to remember how lucky I am that I get to pick up my kiddos every day!

Do you watch their show? I've been watching them for years, a strange obsession of mine and I'm most certain I've never heard saint Michelle yell, let alone raise her voice!
Now I sit here with a sore throat from yelling all evening, feeling like a loser for yelling all evening, feeling like an even bigger loser when I think about my monsters going to bed thinkin I'm mad at them and feeling like the BIGGEST loser hoping my kids wont think of me when their older as the crazy yelling mom.... Michelle Duggar I want to be like you when I grow up ( Just not with your 80's hair 'do!)
(for the record i obviously have no idea if the Duggars are medicated, i'm just poking fun for my own sanity! i also *heart* my kids more than anything.)

|You Belong in Rome|
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?
Ok, so here's the idea. Make a December Daily album. Take one photo every day in December and put it in an album. (That's the simple version) For some great inspiration and a more detailed description of this project check out Ali Edwards Daily December Post - this is her idea after all. At first I was like a photo every day? No prob! I've been mulling it over for a few weeks now and decided that it may be difficult. I'm going to have to make sure to have the camera handy at all times and I'm going to probably have to use the cell phone camera on occasion. I'm not sure what direction my album will take yet - family, traditions, my personal schedule, my favorite things. I will have to see what pictures I end up taking. Many of the girls on the scrap message boards are making their albums now so that they can just add photos. We'll see if I get that on top of it - if I do I will for sure post pics. Alright, so who's going to do this with me????? "
Thanks for the great Idea Mel!
Be back later with todays pic!

The tree decorated, stockings hung...
Chris trying to get Preston to do some hand thing
Miss olive fingers
and here's Lexi and Bryce on Tuesday before they hit the road to move back to Heber. I also went back into nagging pouty sister mode and was sure to tell them how much they suck for moving back to Heber and taking my cute nephew with them!! Yes I'm still pouting too!
