Oh My Heck could someone please turn the snow maker off. We have had a very mild winter season thus far, and I have enjoyed it. But the last two days have brought us 6-8 inches of snow, and I am so tired of shoveling. The one good thing about all of this, is that Jaxon got to play in the snow for the first time today. Bradly hates the snow. Duh, why do we live in Utah then. So he bundled Jaxon up and brought him out to me, so we could take some pictures at least. Pam, "Please hurry it is so cold and snowy out here. I can't handle it, I want to go back in the warm house." One guess who said that. So here are the pictures of our little adventure. Bradly took Jaxon's hat off and dropped him in the snow, at that point I said okay enough take him inside you big baby. Abby and I played out in the snow for a while. There were snow angels and running through the snow. Snowballs and eating the snow. I know yuck. All the pollution and stuff in the air. I have told her a million times don't eat the snow, but I think that is just part of being a kid. I mean come on I grew up in Virginia and Michigan. I am sure I ate some snow in my time, and I turned out alright. After a couple hours of shoveling and playing I had to go in I was freezing. It is still snowing. Will it ever stop I really don't know.

It has been a great day here in the Wiscombe household. We celebrated the birth of the little baby Jesus last night by reading the story of his birth. Then today awoke to presents under the tree delivered by Santa. We must have been good this year. Abby was so excited that she had recovered from the naughty list and made the nice list just in time. She worked really hard yesterday for all the mean things she has done. The problem is she hasn't been really all that bad, but she picks on her brother alot. But for all of us that have siblings that is just something that happens. You can try and control it, but you can't. I don't live in a dream land so I know it is going to happen. She just needs to be a bit nicer to him, and understand he is a baby and can't really stick up for himself at all. The house is ever filled with Christmas yummies. We made the traditional Rocky Road, Fudge, Peanut Bloosoms, and Rice Krispy Treats. We shared with our neighbors and family, and wish that you all were close enough that we could have shared them with you. We put the Christmas tree up November 1st, and today it went back in the box. I love this time of year. The lights, the music, the memories, the tree, and the joy on the faces of children. We have been lucky enough to have many great memories of the past, and are currently building Christmas memories for our children. We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and hope that this Christmas has been great for all of you. That you have been able to share time with family and friends. We hope and pray for all those on missions for the church and those serving in the military. That they know they are loved, and that we hope they had a great day. We wish all of you a wonderful New Year, and hope that all your dreams comes true. We hope that peace and hope will surround us, and enable us a 2010 full of good things.

Wow how time flies. Jaxon is now five months old and moving on to baby food. He still hasn't developed a very good sleep schedule no matter what we try it just doesn't work. But the doctor says maybe putting him on food might help. I love baby stages, but I am truly praying that he picks up sleeping, because he is wearying me down. Abby was a great sleeper from the beginning so I never had to worry. She was happy too, but as they say every child is different and brings different challeges. Jaxon is learning to crawl, and we can't wait to show him snow. We are thankful for our little guy and hope that he continues to grow big and strong.
