PJ Cheistmas Party

I went to Vance's Montessori School for his Christmas party. They all wore pj's and watched movies. We made a couple cute little things to take home, like the sock snowman picutered above. Vance is serioulsy so cute at school. All the kids love hima nd he is kind of the life of the party. It makes me so happy to see that is nice to everyone in his class.

When we left his school, we were in the car and Vance said "Mom, I am so happy you came to my school today because you are so much prettier than all the other mom." Wow.. Vance, my little ladies man. He alwasy knos how to boost my ego. Vance is growing so fast. Sometimes I wish I could freeze time to enjoy his sweet little compliments and actions toward me.

Goodbye to Rhett... Hello to Elder Scheurn

Today is a very bitter sweet day. I am so sad that I am not back home in AZ to see my baby brother off on his mission. I have been up since 5:30 just wishing I was there. Out of all my Brothers, Me and Rhett seem to be the most alike.... along with that, we sometimes clash, but we always get over any little thing that comes between us. Rhett has been a huge blessing to all of us in the Scheurn Family. I honestly vote Rhett the BEST uncle in the world. My kids adore him. although I am feeling homesick, I know that it is Elder Scheurn's time to go serve the Lord. People are WAITING for him in Italy. We are so Proud of him. He has been an example to everyone around him. I love him so much. I feel very blessed that he was able to come out in September and spend time with us. I will cherish all the memories we made. It was a blast. I know Rhett would not be where he is with out my awesome parents. Beside the spoiling.. ;) They have done such a good job raising their boys and getting them on missions. My mom is probably the best missionary mom EVER. I am sure she already had packages lined up ready to send to Rhett. My dad in AMAZING. He has pushed his sons to do whats right. It's hard to to bad things when you have an example like him. I love my family. I wish I could be there today as he starts his journey to the MTC. He will do great there. Everyone loves Rhett. I know that the Lors has sent him to the right place. He will fit right in with all the other handsome Italian boys;) We love you Rhett and we will miss you so much, but it will go by fast, so treasure it. Goodbye for 2 years!

3 little boys on Santa

Santa, Santa, Santa. This was by far the best Santa I have ever seen. He was so nice to my kids and he made sure to tell them that the most important thing about Christmas is Christ. He told them that when they wake up Christmas Morning, the first thing they should do is sing "Happy Birthday" to baby Jesus. It was pretty cool.
My kids have been telling me what they want for Christmas and I will just say I can't think of something they DON'T want. Well it's funny how when Santa asks them, they become shy and can't think of anything. wow.

Santa was still talking even after they got off his lap.
About 3 days after this visit to Santa, we were driving in the car and Brogan said "Mom, I have to tell you something" "when I was sitting on Santa's lap, I was VERY VERY scared" hmmmmm

I kept my niece and nephew over night and got them all ready for church by 9:30. I felt pretty awesome. :) It helps that they are a great group of kids!

These boys! Gavin and Vance.... they are a month apart in age and they are so much alike. You would think that they have lived together in the same place thier whole lives. They are so stinkin cute together. If Gavin leaves our house, Vance will just talka bout him until he sees him again. Of course boys will be boys and they are a little crazy when they get together, but it makes it just that much cuter.

Target Practice

Call us rednecks, but we love to shoot! I got a new gun as kind of a Christmas present and i couldn't wait to shoot it. We all went out to Mike's (Ben's Brother) house where he has built a pretty nice shooting range. I LOVE shooting. I can't really even say why but I just do. I also like to know that incase of an emergency (home invasion) or something I might be able to protect my family. Vance has a 22 that he likes to shoot. Of course we are VERY careful with him around and we drill the rules into his head. He is good about being safe.

Ben Helping him load it.
All by himself. Pretty impressive

The Day of Thanks

THANKSGIVING WAS A HIT. I can't believe how scared I was to host Thanksgiving ALL by myself. Ben's Brother and his 3 kids, and Ben's father came, So really it was not that many people, but I am NOT a cook. There are a few things that I make that are really good, but for the most part, I am a frozen dinner kind of girl. Like I said, the turkey was awesome and everything else turned out perfectly. The kids were all so good and we really just enjoyed each other. I couldn't have asked for a better day. After we ate, the boys played out side for a long time. Ben was trying his hardest to set up a baseball game, but he was dealing with a bunch of crazy little boys. I was exhausted. I can't believe I did this, but While everyone was playing, I went in my dark room and fell asleep. I woke up to a clean kitchen and the boys playing Wii. PERFECT! I will totally do this again next year:)
My Mac n' cheese... Must say, to die for!
Me and Brogie Bear
I tried this new recipe for these pecan cookie bars. EVERYBODY loved them. Them men were fighting over them at the end of the night

Brogan and sweet Mariah
The only girl, mariah Just played with the water. (I know how she feels being out numbered)

He just sat out after a while

My first bird

I was so nervous this year! I knew I was hosting Thanksgiving and that I would be the one cookinh EVERYTHING. Nothing scared me as much as the turkey. I had to make a few phone calls for help but I am not going to lie.... I am so proud of myself. It turned out so yummy. It was very moist and I am pretty sure it was a hit! My mom and her sisters always joke that you are not a woman until you have pulled all the "CRAP" out of a raw turkey. So finally, now at age 26, I am a woman!

First Broken Bone

My kids have done stitches, well lets just say more than once, but we hadn't had a broken bone until my sweet little clumsy Brogan decided he wanted to be the first. He Slipped getting into our car and fell backwards. I knew from his scream that something was really wrong. He kept saynig his shoulder hurt so I figured his shoulder was out of the socket. I took him to his chiropracter to get him looked at. The Dr said he thought everything was ok beacause he wasn't screaming too badly while he was being poked. ( I think that was due to the tylenol and IB profen I had given him right before)Well I felt a lot better knowing there were no major injuries. We drove home and had a long night of tossing and turning and SCREAMING. The next morning I made him rest and just hoped that the pain would subside. Nope. So that evening Ben took the little guy to the ER where they told him he has broken collar bone. Ugh... such bad timing, the day before thanksgiving when he was going to see all his cousins and want to play sports outside. It has been a challenge trying to keep the sling and wrap on him, but he is starting to realize how much more it hurts when he doesn't. I am so sorry this happen to my Bro Bro, but he is one tought kid and I know he will heal Quickly

this was the night he came home from the ER.... so sad

Vance's Feast

Vance goes to Coastal Empire Montessori school, and It is seriously the best school EVER! Vance loves going to school everyday! For Thanksgiving they had a Feast. They learned about all the different foods that the pilgrims ate and they tried it all at their feast. They had Turkey, Chicken, Duck, Deer, Authentic pudding and they even made their own butter for the bread. Vance was so cute singing songs about giving thanks. Thank you to Mrs Lynn who cares so much about the kids and put on this event for them!

This is Vance's very good friend MatthewOf course he is sitting next to a pretty girl
