John came home for the last time before the big move. Faraway Grandma picked him up at the airport and brought him up for J's Christmas piano recital on Friday night. J did a wonderful job playing his "Joy to the World" song. We are really going to miss JoRene. She has been a great teacher for J. I hope we can find another good one when we get to California.
On Saturday we attended the annual Little Star Party that Great Grandma has every Christmas Season. The weather was bad but we made it to the party just in time for the little star story. Saturday night we celebrated Christmas at Grandma and Grandpas. James and Jakub got a tomas the train set,a tent and Church outfits. J got a DS game and a church outfit. They were all very happy.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa! WE LOVE YOU!
Monday we took J for a check up with the Urologist. He recommended we find a good Pediatrician in California and told us about the Children's Hospital in Fresno. I am nervous about changing Dr's but it is part of the moving process. Dr. Nelson has been so good with J. He pushed the testing and surgery to remove J's kidney. What a blessing it has been to have him keeping a close eye on J for over 2 years now.
We stopped at Temple Square before leaving SLC to show the boys around the visitor centers. What a great spirit! John and I were married in this temple almost 11 years ago. What a blessing it is to be an Eternal Family. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I know He died for me and He lives today. When we pray, He hears and answers us. My testimony has been strengthened through this process of taking the job in California and moving forward with getting our family under the same roof again. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only True Church on the earth today. My your Holiday Season be full of His Love. I love you all!

Baby Shower

My Baby Brother and Sister in Law are not due to have their first until March but I really wanted to have a shower before I moved so we did. We met at Iggy's and had a great time.
I made this really cute diaper cake. When J saw it he said. "Oh man, Mom why can't you make a really cake that big for me"
The fried cheese cake was so yummy.
Here are all us girls in the family. When the baby girl comes in March we will to totally even with boys and girls.

Dear Santa.....

Someone help. I got a new camera and I never had a problem with my old one, putting pictures from the memory card to the blog. How do I rotate this picture?

We went to the Library to see Santa. This year Jakub was nervous and James not so much. (Just opposite of last year)
J could not think of anything when Santa asked J what he wanted for Christmas. But then he sat down and wrote a letter.....
Dear Santa I have been very good. I would like a new video game

(that message was all on one line, but there was not room for the period on that line so he put it to the next)

John came home for Thanksgiving

John left for California in September. It was so great to having him home for a few days at Thansgiving. The boys hadn't seen him for over 10 weeks. Of course the boys went to bed without a fight for Dad. I have struggled with bedtime and am very excited to get moved so I don't have to do it alone anymore.

Grandpa and dad hung Christmas lights, while Grandma and the boys made a snowman. We walked down the street to a neighbors house that is decked out with lights. We ended up down there several nights during our stay.

The whole family got together for FHE on Saturday. We had a great time seeing the new baby cousins and making gingerbread houses.
On Sunday we said good bye again but John will be back in a few weeks for a family Christmas party and then we will be moving down after Christmas. YAY!
