Christmas Fun!

I have my nieces and nephew over the Christmas Break. My brother donated his kidney so his wife could get a kidney that matched her. They both had surgery at Scripps in San Diego December 15 and 16th, It is amazing how this came to be, my brother wanted to donate a kidney to his wife but was not a match. He went to Scripps and talked with the transplant coordinator, They have been working on this for a year. The coordinator then started putting the pieces together. It affected 6 people. 3 people who have been on dialasis, now have new kidneys! This is a gift of love, I have been trying to keep my kids busy while their parents are away. We have been to the dollar store twice to play a game, we draw names I give the kids money and they go buy a gift for that person. They love running through the store shopping! Monday we went ice skating for 4 hours, Then for FHE we made Christmas cookies!! Tuesday we went to the Bellagio to see the flower garden and chocolate fountain! then we went to the fashion show and saw the wonderful Christmas show!! I take my kids every year! At the end it snows! Then we went to brass pro shops, they have a great Santa and Mrs. Claus. They had target shooting with paly guns and bow. We had a fun day! Brooklynn and Remington feel asleep in the car on the way home!! Today we are going to the Chipmunk movie! It is going to be a fun Christmas Break! My brother and his wife are doing good, we are hoping they will release them for a few days to come home for Christmas! Have a Merry Christmas!

Santa at Chucke Cheese

Yesterday was my preschool Christmas party, I had it at Chucke Cheese. It was so fun with all the moms,dads, kids and my grandbabies. We had the place to ourselves!!! I have a great Santa that I sleep with. So everyone saw Mrs. McIntyre kissing Santa Claus!!!! ( I was hoping it would help those who were afraid)! I love this picture it brings back so many memories of Christmas past! Thanks kids for coming with the babies! Thanks for all the moms and dads who came and had fun with us,it was a great party!!!

Today we went to the mall and saw Santa!! As you can see this is not the happiest place on earth!!! The only reason I was in the photo is because we couldn't get the two criers to go without grandma!! Lunch was great afterwards then they all wanted to go by and see Santa from a distance.

We took pictures of each family this year for our Christmas Card.
I love Christmas time because there is so much family time! It is great to be together and think about the miracle of Jesus' birth and his life. It is a time to try to be more Christ like in words and actions. I love the song "I am trying to be like Jesus". This is what I try to do everyday. Some days are better than others, but I keep trying. Have a wonderful Christmas season.

Father and Son Bonding

For Bob's birthday this year Josh and Lisa gave Bob a weekend of camping and fishing.
Bob's birthdays was in March, but with Bob's and Josh's schedule this was the 1st weekend they could go. Lisa was a good sport and stayed home with the girls. ( I gave her a little break and took the girls for a few hours on saturday).
Josh took his dad to Bishop California to fish and camp and explore!!! They had a great time and caught a few fish. One of the highlights was when they were fishing in one of the lakes they saw a California fire fighting helicopter in swooped down and sucked up 500 gallons of water to take to one of the fires. It did this 6 times while they were fishing Bob said "it was an AMAZING SIGHT"!!! I am so glad they still enjoy father and son bonding time!!
