Kenyon's 7th Birthday

Kenyon's 7th Birthday was a few weeks ago. The day started off with "Grandma Julie" bringing homemade pancakes in funny shapes, whipped cream and orange juice over in the morning before school! What a treat!!

While he was at school we went and got him 7 balloons and made him a Basketball cake.

About to open presents. Kamden isn't mad, this is the only picture that at least 3 of them looked good!

The long awaited DS game he has wanted.

Seriously mom, more legos? I know, shoot me now. But he loves them and I would much rather waste the money on something he loves then on something I will throw away in a week!

A few days after his birthday he had his party. He had a bunch of boys over and we had cake, presents, played a game and then took them all to the Hockey rink to roller skate.

Hopefully you can tell that his cake is a Rollerblade.

The best gift! A tub of Licorice!

His party was a blast and the kids have been begging to go back to the skating rink. It was the perfect party for a bunch of boys to burn off all their energy. Happy Birthday Bud!!

Christmas......what a blur!

This Christmas was such a blur to me. If you read a previous post you will remember that ALL of us got sick the 22nd and 23rd. So Christmas day we were all still recovering. The kids were still super excited and had a blast opening all their gifts. I think I took about 20 pictures. Here are a few:

Kenyon's Lego Castle from Grandma and Grandpa Ekman. I spent 3 days putting this together and then as Akoni was moving it from the kitchen to the boys bedroom.....CRASH! It hasn't been put back together since!

Kamden got MAC from cars and loves to haul around all his cars.

Adriann's ne American Girl doll. It's one that she picked out to look like her. She named her Brittany and she is so cute. She has red hair and freckles just like Adriann.

Christmas morning.

This was me. I couldn't walk without crutches since it was only 4 days after my surgery, so I pretty much was like this for the whole day. and many days after!

Akoni found these Toy Story boots! The even say ANDY on the bottom!

Monica with her cell phone from Auntie Rachel! Big hit!
I say that this was a Christmas that I would rather not remember, but I know that I will never forget it.
