Giryan Dancing to Mr. Jones

There are two things that make me really happy about this video. 1) Giryan loves to dance. 2) He also likes Counting Crows... He definitely takes after his mother. :)

Who needs a sled?

This weekend my whole family came up to Idaho to visit. We were so glad that they could come, we had so much fun, and we miss them again already. On Saturday we took all the kids sledding. It was a great time! Here is a video of my two crazy brothers. they invented a new way to go down the hill. Bytheway, just turn the volume off unless you want to hear me count to three a lot. :)

Let it SNOW!!!

Okay, so Tyelr doesn't know that Giryan always dances with us when he's at the studio.... This kid needs a stage! It has been snowing pretty consistently for a couple of weeks now, and I've been promising the boys that we would go out an play in the snow. so now that I'm done teaching until January I finally kept my word...

Ellie loves to play fetch with snowballs, it's hilarious.

We played outside till our hands were freezing, and then we played more. The snow in our front yard is easily up to my knees. It was a blast!

Finally we came in for some hot cocoa and got warmed up, I'm so glad to have a break from teaching so I can hang out and play with my kids. They are awesome!

Here's a picture of our cute little goblins all ready for trick or treating. (Spiderman, Tigger and Transformer/bumblebee) We had a great time! We visited Grandma and Grandpa Jones, then we went trick-or-treating at the mall (all the stores give out treats) and finished up with a visit to Grandma Great. And we still managed to get them in bed by 8:30.... GO US!!! Of course they didn't actually go to sleep until much later thanks to the incredible sugar high. I was actually relieved that some of the places we went gave out pretzels, play doh, stickers and tattoos. I think that's a great idea.... and plan to do something similar next year.

Brecken and the infectious Smile

In our family, Tayson has the tender heart, Giryan is the lion (his name in Hebrew means young lion) and Brecken always makes you laugh and smile. He will tell you about everything and be so creative in his stories you would think he is a professional. On anyone's bad day he will always be there with a smile. So if you are having a bad day, here is a picture for you

Giryan's earaches

For the past month, Giryan has had extremely bad ear aches. We have gone through antibiotics and soon will have one named after us, because each of our children seem to not respond to them the first time. Finally, Giryan took it into his own hands to get feeling well. hahaha not really, the bottle was empty :)lol
