We had our Anniversary!
11 years and counting! My mom took the kids for the night and we did whatever we wanted until the next evening. It was super great.
The boys begged us to go to the "skate park" by our house. So we made their day and took them. They had such a great time even though it was FREEZING. Mom and dad watched them from the car...!
Beautiful Natasha had her birthday, I tried really hard to make the best Carrot cake ever. It was beautiful but didn't taste quite as good as it looked. Maybe next year... The elusive carrot cake gets me every time.
Jax loves Natasha. All my kids love Natasha. Like SOOO MUCH.
And here are more cute pictures of Cal and his preschool and amazing teacher.
This moment was cute, Rod was reading the boys his book he made a school and they were all listening so nicely. It was darling. And then Cal started to mess around. Still, super cute moment.
My good friend and neighbor of 6 years moved to Missouri. We did a little get together, here I am with some of my good friends and my mom. Who is ALSO a good friend. :)
We finally got the Christmas tree up! It was a feat. We had lighting complications and it was really hard to finally get it all put together and lit. We love it though. We got some new ornaments and love the colors. The kids were so "helpful" with the decorating. I love them.
I like these two picture because they are classic "Rod" and "Jax".
And most exciting of ALL THE THINGS, Chanel got home from her mission on November 27th. We couldn't be happier to have her home. She has been so missed!! Here we are on our way to pick her up! So excited!!
We waited quite a while for Chanel to finally get up the nerve to come down the escalators...! And when she did we all exploded. Tears, everywhere.
It was such a happy memory. Ah, so good. :)
This was darling to watch; Mairee patiently did Calvins finger nails for him. He was so happy. The problem is that it takes a long time for them to dry, and he is 3. So that was a problem. But I love these cute pictures!!
Chanel and I at my work, working out! I have been wanting her to know/experience what I do for a long while. Yay!
Jaxton and Rod had their piano recitals!! They did SUCH a good job. I love listening to them play. I loved their pleased faces when they finish. It all makes me very happy.
Next time though I'm going to request to Terry, (their piano teacher) that everyone only does 1 song. We want to try and avoid the 2 hour children's recitals if we can. :)
The Haight family Christmas Party was the first Saturday in December! It was so much fun to be with everyone and eat and play!! Rod was in his element dancing for everyone on the stage. I don't know what he ate that night but he couldn't stop dancing! :)
Here are some pictures of everyone there.
Also, Justin and I were there.
My grama had the kids play the chimes. It was fun to watch and the kids loved it.
Lisa was super helpful! And had the coolest poem about her pants...! :)
I don't know why these are flipped, but here are the kids doing their white elephants!
I didn't get any pictures of the adults doing their white elaphant, there were just too many tears... ;) Hehe. Just kidding.
Christmas is Coming!!
