BIG FLIPPIN WEEKEND

we tried to force lots of sleep on the little one before the californian clan arrived.....luckily it wasn't too hard
Raquel (Marty's sister) is due in Feb. with a little "Lucy Bonino", and Diane just ate her little grandson up.
Jeremy practices being a Big Brother to a newborn...he is the baby of the fam now and will be 9 years older than Lucy...
What a natural
we spent some time at an arcade for the boys, luckily it had a slide for Rubster, she even made grandma go down head first 3 or 4 times ...the things you do for grandchildren....I guess.....
we went bumper car driving...I got more into it than my two nephews...I loved it, it's nice to let loose (what?)
after a lunch at Cafe Rio, we went to Thanksgiving Point and saw an IMAX dinosaur movie-AWESOME, and went thru the museum...again...AWESOME...only it costs 14$ a body...kinda pricey but well worth it one time... it was for me anyway


Ruby still loves her auntie Kim....she's partial to girls that look alot younger than they are?...I won't disclose her age
I'm not the mean mother it may appear to be in this pic.....but the shark was so cool looking and I knew it would be cooler with Ruby in it...I didn't think she'd be horrified by the cute little thing...it's not like he's real!
Liam was blessed this weekend too, we planned it around the family being in town...so after the sacrament mtg. in which we both had to speak (cuz we're new in the ward) (yes, I did fine and Marty did great and I cried pretty much thru my whole talk...) we had both families over to our humble little abode for soup and bread and deserts....everyone...although a bit crammed...FIT!!



Marty gave a beautiful blessing and both dads were in the circle and my grandpa (which was really neat he was well enough to attend) and the bishop ...oddly they were all the same heigth...so no one seemed short? It was like one of those eye tricks...






I have to brag about this beautiful blanket knitted by the one and only mother-in-law Diane....she is amazing and sooo talented, this pic doesn't do it justice, it is so soft and I absolutely love the colors....
Russ played Santa Clause......he asked Ruby what she wants to say to santa....she said "thank you" then he asked what santa says, hoping to get a ho ho ho....instead he got a "your welcome"

I LOVE THIS POST! THank you for putting up all these pics! Liam is adorable! I wish we could have been there for his blessing...i'm sure i'll be saying that type of phrase a lot in the next 4 years!

Ruby is so cute! She is such a character...sticking out her tongue! I love her little cheetah collar on that pink sweater! I can't believe she freaked out at the shark! You are mean! ha ha ha

From what i can see in the pics, your house is SOOO cute and i can't wait to see it now that you are all moved in! Tell Ruby we say hi...Brett showed me that cute picture text of her!

fun post to read. bad pic of Tiff with food in her mouth?! so glad you had a wonderful time with Marty's family here to visit. We loved seeing them all again. Your talks were AMAZING!!! Watch out . . . with speaking abilities like that, you two are going to be members of the BRETHREN AND SISTERN some day!!

Your kids are soooo cute. It was fun to see pictures of your family. Hope they're doing well. You look great! How'd you do it so soon after the baby? I need your secrets (or I need to screw my jaw shut--ha, ha).

it looked like you were able to squeeze in a lot of fun into just a short amount of time - also being able to squeeze all of us into you house on Liam's blessing day was nothing short of a miracle - the funny thing is....it didn't seem that crowded!
