...so lately every time I sit down to upload pictures or update our adventurous children decide to :
A: Start World War 3 Over A Beloved LEGO
B: Make Their Own Lunch With TONS OF HONEY!!!
C. Fill The Toilet With a WHOLE ROLL OF TP
D. Stand Right Next To Me and say MOM, MOM,MOM, CAN I, CAN I, CAN I...until I don't even remember what I was trying to do in the first place.

We had an AWESOME Thanksgiving Vacation. We packed the whole crew up and headed to Grapevine Texas were we enjoyed THE GREAT WOLF LODGE http://www.greatwolf.com/ ...if you live close to one I highly recommend going. It was fun to be in a water park in the middle of winter. A few days after arriving home, December 3rd, Benson was finally weighing enough and old enough to undergo his bi-lateral inguinal hernia repair. He flirted with the nurses and was a pretty happy baby considering he didn't get to eat 12 hours prior to surgery. THANK GOODNESS FOR OUR SWING!!! The swing kept him lulled to sleep until we needed to head to the hospital. He was his normal happy self within 24 hours post-op!

Christmas was enjoyable! We ATE WAY TOO MUCH!!! I've never stepped on a scale after the holidays until this year...I think it's crazy how one can gain 6 pounds in a day. YES...6 POUNDS!!! However, I've never been one to care about weight management but seriously 6 pounds in one day is ridiculous and I will be more careful when the holidays roll around again!

The rest of our time is filled with work and church callings. In fact in the next 12 weeks we have 1 weekend to ourselves and the rest is filled with Youth Activities, Temple Trips, Primary Activities, and Practice for The 10 Virgin Performance I've been asked to sing in (which I'm way excited for, the music is FANTASTIC!!!)

I do have pictures to post but they were all downloaded to our PC Tower and I don't want to wake Ryan to link the laptop up...so those will have to wait for another day...

Here are the boys' statistics, kinda fun to see where they all are:

Caden: is 5 (almost 6) weighing in at 52 lbs and is 4 feet 5 inches (He'll be taller than me soon)
Levi : is 3 weighs in at 41 lbs and is 3 feet 8 inches (NOT far behind his brother)
Benson: is 7 months and weighs 17 lbs 14 oz and is 2 feet 4 inches
Ryan is...just kidding...

Goodnight, I must sleep before Benson wakes for his night feeding!!!
