Happy Birthday Jaron!!!!

I just love this guy, he is so funny and cute. I can't believe that he is 4 years old. He is such a wonderful son, and he is going to be a great big brother :) He is so excited to be 4 finally, he has wanted to be 4 since August when his cousin Ahlana turned 4. When he asked my mom how Ahlana turned 4, she said that Ahlana turned around and that's how she turned 4. Well a few minutes later Jaron turned around and said OK, now I'm 4. I knew that one was coming. But he has just been so ready and excited to be 4. I thought I would also share a few funny stories of him :

At FoodMaxx the otherday walking around and annoucement came over the intercome. Jaron looked up and asked me, was that God? :) No I'm not kidding, he asked me that. I told him that it was a man over the speaker, and then he asked what a speaker was.

One of his favorite shows is Mickey Mouse Club House. One of the episodes the doctor turns Goofy into a baby goofy. Through out the show they have to take care of baby Goofy. They even teach them to burp the baby with a song :) Well the other night our neighbor's new son was crying very loud, we could hear him pretty well. Jaron was very sad and asked me what was wrong with the baby. I told him that I didn't know, he then says " They didn't burp him, they need to do it like this, Top, Top, Bottom Bottom, Middle Middle Middle." I just started laughing, he is going to be a great big brother.

We went to the ward Christmas party on Friday and Santa was there to visit with the kids. All the kids got in line and Jaron looks up at me and says" That's not Santa, he doesn't have a long beard." I told him that he was Santa's helper and that he would tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas. He would not sit on Santa's lap. But yesterday at Aaron's work Santa came again and this time he had a long beard, Jaron didn't have much trouble going to see him, especially when he knew it was his birthday :)

I just love this little guy so much and love spending so much time with him. He is so smart and funny. Happy Birthday buddy, Mommy and Daddy love you more then anything!!

He got to go to Disneyland on the 6th and had a lot of fun. I didn't post all of the pictures, just the ones I really liked. Jaron was so funny at the parade, he was yelling "HI" to every character that went by. He also knew them all by name, he was too funny. Aaron and Jaron only went on the Pirate ship, I thought about it later and I should have gone with them. We're just not line people :) But we got to see a lot of things and had a great time. When we go again we are going in the middle of the week. While we were there we ran into some of our friends from Reno, the Bartholomews. It was so great to see them and talk to them. We hadn't seen their new baby Adam and Diane hadn't seen my belly :) So it was great and crazy to see them. Thanks to IFTA for giving us a great Christmas present.

A long drive home

We left a little later then what we had planned to get home after the Thanksgiving Holiday and got stuck in traffic. Thankfully Jaron slept a good portion of the way and when he was awake, he was being such a good boy.
This the face of "how long have we been driving?"

I know we didn't drive as far as others, but it was long. We got stuck in a traffic jam near the I5 and 580 interchange and then hit fog and traffic a little later. It was not a fun drive at all, but we made it home safely.

Sarah and Andy

My cousing Sarah was driving through Bakersfield on Tuesday before Thanksgiving and stopped by to say "HI" It was so nice to see her and meet her new boy friend Andy. He was so funny and nice. He is from England and had to go back, right after Thanksgiving. But again I just love seeing family and catching up.

Meeting up with Family

OK so I joined Facebook a while ago and got in contact with almost all of my dad's family. It has been so great. Some of my cousins were even coming to Disneyland just before Thanksgiving, so I drove down to LA and had dinner with them. I even got to see my Aunt Velm and William. I just love family, you are instant friends no matter how long it has been since you've seen each other.

Here is Danny holding Kort, Jaimie Treysen and Jaci.

It was so much fun seeing you guys and getting to know your kids, they are so cute. When we first got there, Treysen asked Jaron if he was his cousin. He said yes and they were great friends the rest of the night, as we walked out of the Hotel room, they were holding hands, it just cracked me up.
