Did you notice what is new on the blog?

Well if you live in New York or I saw you over Christmas you probably already know but whatever :)

Sunday, December 21, 2008


Danny, Mason and I are currently in Seattle and the internet is iffy here... no pictures today but I thought I would give an update.

For those of you who do not live in New York, last weekend we had a crazy storm. We got around an inch of ice, doesn't seem like much but knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of people including us. We didn't have power for almost 48 hours and that means super fun when you have a 1 year old and the house got down the the high 30's!!!!!!! Luckily some friends in our ward had power and let us and another family stay over, which was fun and crazy with all the kids running around. Mason loved playing with all his new friends. I didn't take any pictures because I am special :)

This was Mason's second vacation on an airplane... the first time he was 8 months old and did great, he happily sat in my lap the whole time. Apparently it is different when you have a 14 month old who can walk!!!! Overall given the circumstances ( 6 hours to Seattle) he did really well, only a couple small tantrums. Oh and he would try to steal things or throw things at the kid sitting next to us in the window seat, haha.

We have had fun in Seattle so far, Mason loves his aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. He will pretty much play with anybody that will give him attention. Here is a link from Uncle David and Aunt Julie's blog with a video of Mason playing with his uncle David.

The weather has been pretty crazy here, and Christmas has been canceled! Well not really but both sides of the family decided to have their Christmas parties this weekend so Danny, Mason and I could come but the snow ruined our fun :( oh well...

Oh and Danny and I plus his brother David and sister Kristi got this nasty stomach flu on Friday... and today (Sunday) his dad and grandparents are sick, yikes so far Mason is unscathed and I hope it stays that way.

Is it snowing a lot in New York? I got an email that they canceled church... I wonder how much is at our house? It is weird because all the places we live or are visiting is getting dumped on, haha funny. I hope our plane won't be canceled when we go to SLC on Tuesday!!!! Okay fun fun sorry this has been so long, I will put pictures up someday.

Oh and we are lazy and are not sending Christmas cards, but know we still love you all :)

more fall

Mason and I went to our friends the Yeager's to take some pictures because they had TONS of leaves in their yard. It was fun to play in all the leaves, even if Mason wasn't really in the mood for pictures. Sorry there are lots of pictures :)

Trick or Treating

On Halloween we went to the mall to go Trick or Treating, it was a little crazy with all the people but at least it was warm for the kids.

Isabella (piggy), Ayden (vampire), Daniel (lion), Kaylie (pumpkin), Mason (bee), Gwen (Ducky)

Kaylie and Mason


Gwen and her tounge

Ayden didn't like the loud music so he plugged his ears

Danny came to visit after work
