Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

WOW was December crazy and exhausting, but tons and tons of fun!
One of the first activities we did was make gingerbread houses with my mom and my sister Tia. I think they turned out pretty cute for our first time ever making them all on our own. We also spent 4 or 5 days of jam packed fun in Salt Lake City visiting my sister in law where we decorated sugar cookies and had a snow ball fight with cousins.Then on Friday Shawn and I met up with my family and went to temple square to look at the beautiful lights,and have dinner at "The Roof" restaurant. The next day we were able to attend my cousin Jonathan's wedding at the Mt. Timpanogas Temple.
We got back home from Salt Lake just in time to get ready for Santa. Christmas Eve we spent doing the traditional Anderson events which are; Mexican dinner, followed by the Nativity Play acted out by the littlest of Anderson's, and then the grand finale of the evening opening up pajamas and posing for pictures. This year my mom came up with the idea of having each sibling and their family sporting pajamas that represented their favorite team or college. Since us Tobler's aren't big sports fans we represented the Big Dogs from Virgin Valley. Christmas morning our kids woke us up at 6:00 on the dot. Who knows how long they had been awake but they new they couldn't wake us up before 6. Santa definantly found our house and the kidos were very spoiled. This Christmas was really nice at our house because we were able to have Shawn home as he has had to work on Christmas for the last 3 years. We were also lucky enough to have him home for New Year which we spent with our good friends the Frei's. We go over to their house every year and have dinner and good conversation while the kids play all night.
We have had a wonderful year and have been greatly blessed. We are surrounded by amazing family and wonderful friends. The kids are all healthy and growing way to fast sometimes I find my self looking at Kylee and wondering who's kid she is because their is no way I have a child that old. Time sure does fly by and I am anxiously waiting to see what the year 2010 brings.

The girls look cute in their Christmas dresses that mom my bought for them.

October Fun!

We did some really fun things this October as a family. For Family night we took the kids to Stahli Farms to do the pumkin patch and corn maze.

We went to a really fun party at the park.

We carved pumkins

Kylee ran in the pumkin run at school (zoey didn't want to run she said she already had a pumkin so she didn't need one)

For Halloween we decided to head up to Salt Lake to spend some time with Rob, Jen and the kids and boy did we have a blast. Jens neighborhood was great to trick or treat in. The kids got tons of candy witch included a couple of full size candy bars and a soda pop.

As one the activities prior to the dance Kylee, with the help of her leaders made that cute poodle skirt to wear.

My sweet baby turns ONE!

It is so hard for me to believe that Anni is already one year old. I took her to the doctor the other day and she weight 23 pounds and is 31 inches tall. (Yes she is a big girl). She is in the 85 percentile in her weight and 95 percent in her height. She reminds Shawn and I a lot of Kylee when she was a baby.
We had a little Birthday party for her on the 23rd with all of her cousins. She had so much fun. She absolutely loved her cupcake and surprised me with her ability to open presents.

Sophie's Turn.....

"Is it time to go yet?" is all we have heard out of Sophie's mouth since Kylee and Zoey started school a week ago. Finally on Monday she started preshcool at the Sunshine Academy with Mrs.Janeece as her teacher. She was a little nervous when it came time for me to leave her. As most of you know she is a little attached to her mother, but she was brave and didn't cry. This morning she got up with her sisters, got ready for school, and was ready to leave an hour and a half before school started so I think the fear has tured into excitement!

Back To School

The 2009/2010 School year has finally begain and everybody was so excited(including mom.)
This year Kylee started the 4th grade and her teacher is Mr. Tait.
Zoey enterted the 1st grade and her teacher is Mrs. Munford. There were no tears this year which was a big accomplishment.

I think it helped that she had her best friend Jordan in the same class.

Back in Action

Last weekend my family went out with friends to Coral Pink sand dunes. We had lots of fun until the wind started blowing. (For those of you who haven't had the experience of being at the sand dunes during a sand storm you are totally missing out) I'm still finding sand in places it shouldn't be.

Anni wishing she could go outside to play.
Shawn giving her what she wants

The kids have tons of fun digging in the sand
