Holden's 5th Birthday

Holden really loves Club Penguin (thanks to his friend Slater who got him hooked). Holden isn't having a party with friend but his good friend Slater got him this for his birthday. Holden was so thrilled.

Holden waiting patiently for family to show up so he could open his gifts.
My 5 wonderful kids Holden (5), Tevin (16), Sloane (9), Harrison (14) and Chandler (16)
Opening his Transformers. We bought him one good guy and one bad so they can do battles but then he told us he only wanted good guys. Oh well.
Another Club Penguin toy. These are called Puffels. He has wanted an orange one forever since it is his favorite color. I am thankful a neighbor called and told me she found one. He sleeps with all his puffels every night. I think we have 6 or 7 now. Holden will not be happy until he has a bed made out of puffels.
Super Mario Movie. Redbox has gotten their moneys worth from me renting this about 5 times. I finally found it for 4 dollars at target and we have watched it about 3 times a day.
Slippers so he can match mommy at night.
Moon Dough. He has asked for this for about 6 months. I don't recommend it. Very messy. But he loves it and that is what matters.
Playing moon dough with cousin Bradie.
His orange cake. He wanted spider man but mommy was too late to order it, but was pleased when his cake was orange so I earned brownie points for that.
His favorite things from his birthday.
We love Holden so much. I know he can be a pill sometimes but he is worth it. We are very proud of him and are impressed with the way his mind works. He has blessed our lives in so many different ways. Happy Birthday Big Guy.

Christmas Photo of the Kids

Well I finally have a good picture of all 5 of my kids for the holiday. They are growing so fast. I love each and everyone of them so much. And I hope they know how much I love and appreciate them. And yes Tevin is growing out his beard again. ERR

November Pictures

Holden and I went to Lindon, Utah to help my sister-in-law with the new baby. Holden, Natalia and I had fun playing in the leaves.

Holden is very sensitive to light so he was trying to cover his eyes.

I love this one of the two of them. They were a lot of fun.

Holden with his new cousin Hayden. He loved holding him and rubbing his head.

Hayden Daniel Cavan. He is so darn cute.

Holden taking a picture of me holding him.

Thanksgiving up at my Father and Mother in laws home in Lindon Utah with all of Chris' siblings.

Chris, Mark and Dan took turns carving the turkeys. I think we had 3. The steam from the turkey fogged up my camera. Sloane was very hungry and couldn't wait for her plate of food.

LOL my nephew Scottie...He loves the legs on the turkey and he ate that thing till all that was left was the bone.

Scottie's brother Mason was not that far behind him.

Family sitting at the table after having one, two maybe even three plates full of food. At this table Kim, Eden, Kellie, Mark and Dave.

Chris, Paige, the backs of Holly and Kayla.

Hayden in his cute turkey outfit. He was very festive.

Dan cooking up some of the skin off the turkey making it crisp like pork rinds. I have to admit that were pretty tasty. I need to get me one of those cookers he has there.

Some of the nieces and nephews doing an activity with Aunt Jill to keep them busy.

Talking to mom and dad on skype. They are serving a mission in Japan and we all were happy to at least be with them this way.

Mason singing a wonderful Christmas carol. I think he sang " I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" after he was done singing his parents Jill and Dave announced they were expecting another baby. We were all surprised and I screamed the loudest and once again sorry about how loud that was.

Holden just waking up after going to bed with wet hair. I have never seen his hair stand this high.

Went to a Tanner Family Christmas party in Payson Utah. Santa was the big hit. Holden asked Santa for an Orange Puffle.

Sloane asked for Liv World dolls.

Grandma and Grandpa Tanner.

Grandma and Grandpa Tanner will all the Great Grandchildren. Believe it or not there were a lot of children missing. We have a big family.

Sloane was very sick Thanksgiving weekend and we told her she had to stay away from the baby. Her aunts brought her a mask and she finally was able to hold Hayden. That made her day.
The weather had been wonderful all Thanksgiving weekend. No snow until the day we were going to go home and this is what we woke up too.

Sloane and Holden are so deprived when it comes to snow. Holden didn't realize how cold it got. He didn't put a coat on.

Sloane making a snow angel. It was deep and snowed all our way home. What should of only took us a little over 3 hours to get home took us over 7. We had a wonderful weekend there.
