Christensen Christmas

This past Saturday we had Christmas with my side of the family. Julie and Todd and Duane came down. Adam and Deann couldn't make it cause of their cute 2 week old little man Stetson. It was a lot of fun. Josh got permission to call early, so we all got to talk to him for a few minutes. He's doing great. We ate prime rib and opened presents and my dad made these awesome lamps out of aspen. We also got some food storage(which is always great to have) The boys got fun toys and some Disney movies and they LOVE them!!!! It was a great Christmas!!

Lancer, Mason, and Wyatt. It was quite interesting trying to get these three to sit for even a second to take a picture! Mason started to crawl while we were at Grandmas. Yay for Mason

My cute boys by the tree

We went to the ward Christmas party and santa was there. Wyatt and Lancer were not having any part of that!!!! I heard Wyatt say santa today when he saw him on a tv commercial. It was cute.

BiRtHdAy PaRtY

Well my little men are now 2 years old!!! We went to Aunt Tammy's and had a combined birthday with Kenna. Lots of fun and good food.

I made this boot cake-I thought it turned out pretty cute

Wyatt and Lancer blowing out candles-Wyatt had a mouthful of olives, so everybody got a little bonus on their frosting. Lancer would blow them out as soon as they were lit.

Yay Presents!!! Thanks for all the gifts everyone. This particular picture is of a truck potty from Grandma and Grandad Oliver. Wyatt has even used it a couple times.

The boys got these tonka trucks from Morgan and I and they LOVE them!!!!
My parents got the boys a basketball hoop and I don't have a picture of it but they really enjoy it.

Lancer in his costume

Mason, Lancer, and Wyatt-Cute Boys

My sister and I made these panda cupcakes and Lancer was sure eying them!

Pretty dang cute huh!!!

Lancer and Wyatt were playing outside at my mom's house and every time I went to check on them, they were doing something silly. Like sitting in the cooler

Just sitting randomly on the grass

Washing Grandma's car with wet wipes. Silly Silly Boys. Lancer is obsessed with wet wipes and loves to wash things with them. My good little cleaner.

Morgan got his deer on the last day of the hunt. A nice 4x4.

Lancer and his daddy and the deer. Wyatt was terrified and was permanently attached around my neck.

The Zoo

This last week my mom and the boys and me went up to visit Julie and Mason. It was a lot of fun. We went to Park City to the outlets one day and then on Saturday we took the boys to Hogle Zoo. They absolutely loved it!!!!! Lancer would growl at the bears and pound on the window at the monkeys (especially the baboon) Wyatt would point and squeal. I think their favorite was the Tiger and her 3 babies. There was also a baby elephant and baby giraffe. Stinkin cute!!!!
Mason, Wyatt ans Lancer waiting to get into the zoo. It was a busy place!

Looking at the elephants

Can you see the gorilla?

I think we're looking at the giraffe's

Sitting on the tigers

This was the penguins, they would swim right under us. Wyatt would pull his hat right over his eyes and wouldn't let me touch it.

Lancer growling at the bear


Then on Saturday night we went to Loa and visited with my Grandparents. It was a fun trip. Thanks Mom for the trip and for everything else. By the way guess how many times we had to clean up puke???? 3 times!!!!

Hallows Family Campout 2009

August 6-9 we went to our annual family reunion with my mom's side of the fam. We took our fifth wheel so it wasn't really camping for us and it was a good time. The boys were actually old enough this year they could really enjoy it.

The boys inside the little cabin

Wyatt being a bully and not letting Lancer in

Wyatt pushing Lancer around in a dump truck

Lancer's turn to push Wyatt around. They loved that thing. Good Christmas idea

So we took Morgan's welding truck and it is a single cab so Wyatt rode up with us and Lancer rode with Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma had just bought Wyatt this cowboy hat and he loves it and he wanted to wear it while we were driving. Well he got tuckered out and pulled it over his eyes and took a little siesta. It was so funny, he's holding his sippy cup too. He cracks me up!!

Mary Kay Seminar

On July 27-Aug 1 I was in Dallas, Texas to the annual Mary Kay Seminar. It was so fun and I learned a lot. They had different sessions where successful Mary Kay people would talk, and there were classes and booths and amazing award nights!!! It is so motivating to see all the prizes and recognition people get.

We went out to dinner one night as a unit and here are just a few of the people. The one standing next to me is Susan McCoy (my director). She has twins too

Here's me and a pink Cadillac- I want the Escalade though!!

We got to ride in a Limo to the awards night because we were all star consultants (which means we sold at least $1800 each quarter) The awards night could be described as the Academy awards and Miss America pageant combined.

Me and LaRonda Daigle. She is awesome and her unit sold over $150 million this past year. She's from Louisiana. Can you see the packed stadium behind me? (and there was another hall filled with people)

LaRonda being crowned Queen of Unit Sales.

All the women on stage with plaques are multi-millionaires with their Mary Kay business

There were all sorts of performances throughout the seminar and this is Jasmine Murray from American Idol. During awards night we got to be on the floor 5 rows back from the stage because our unit achieved circle of excellence (which means we sold over$650,000) so it was so cool to be so close to the action. It was a lot of fun and I'm definitely going again next year.
