Christmas 2012

We had a good Christmas this year. It seems like it came and went pretty fast. This year was kind of crazy. We had a lot going on. With just having had Rexton at the end of October I was slow to get going on any shopping and getting things done ahead of time. We also blessed Rexton and had the triplets birthday the week before. So by the time I was able to focus on just Christmas it seems like it was gone. We had fun though. The kids got a lot of fun things. Santa brought them all bean bags for the basement so they can watch movies and play the wii downstairs. Hooray!! The boys got new bikes which will be so nice this summer. They were pretty excited because they were "General Lee" bikes. They can't believe they have "Dukes of Hazard" bikes. It has been so cold and snowy though that they haven't gotten to try them out yet. They go to the garage everyday and sit on them and check them out. They can't wait until it is warm enough to get out and ride. Railey got new binoculars which she loves. She loves going out and looking at deer and everything else. Rexton got some fun baby toys and clothes. Next year though, I WILL wrap presents earlier and not wait until 2 days before!

Rexton's Blessing Day

We blessed Rexton on December 15th, 2012 at our home in Oak City. We had a little get together with a few friends and family. Grandma and Grandpa came all the way from Blanding to spend the day with us as well as Richard and Judy Winwood from Salt Lake. Richard was Rob's mission president in Canada. They have stayed very close through the years. And that is where Rexton's middle name comes from. Rob's Uncle Weldon and Aunt Teresa came from Tooelle. We also had some close friends that live nearby here with us. It was a good day. We blessed Rexton and then we had a lunch. After lunch we celebrated the triplets birthday and had cake and ice cream. It was fun visiting and spending some time with everyone. We are very lucky to have such wonderful friends and family who support us. We love them all very much.

Triplets turn 7!

The triplets turned 7 years old on December 16th. Its hard to believe they are that old already. They are growing up so fast. We celebrated the day before. Their birthday fell on Sunday this year. We had a little get together with friends and family and celebrated their birthday. We also blessed Rexton the same day. The boys got lots of fun things from friends and family. We saved a couple presents for them to open on Sunday. This is a picture of them opening one of them. They loved their hot wheel holders. These boys are crazy when it comes to cars and hot wheels.
