So funny I was crying!

I found this on facebook a few days ago! It is absolutely hilarious. I laughed so hard I cried.
It says it was written by an Amy Lawrence - I think, that or she is the one who posted it.
Here it is:

AZ trip part 3

We spent Christmas Eve making cookies for ourselves and Santa and drinking hot chocolate with a candy cane in it (so yummy!) The kids played and then we had a story by my mom and the kids got to open one traditional Christmas present from her - new PJ's. My brothers kids did a cute little Christmas song about Santa having a cold too - it was so funny and they did a great job!

Christmas morning

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. It was nice to actually get to spend Christmas day with my family. We didn't have to fly home on Christmas Eve this year so I could work. I didn't have to worry about being home and being called into work either. It was very relaxing and fun just being with Jared, the kids and my family. The rest of my siblings and their families joined us later in the day and we had a great Christmas dinner together.

AZ trip continued...

While we were in AZ, Aidan and I had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas for the Maaco Bowl game. My brother Greg's team - Utah Utes - were playing in it. Aidan left the day before the game with my parents and my brother Steve's family. Aidan had a great time with his cousin Karsen, who has 3 they had some good just boys time!!!

I drove over the day of the game with my brother Adam. The weather cleared up and surprisingly we didn't get rained on. The beginning of the game was a little rough for Aidan. Aidan is not a big fan of fireworks or any loud noises. I haven't been to very many football games and so I had not prepared Aidan very well, but only because I didn't have a clue. Right after the national anthem was finished, 2 fighter jets - F-15 & F-22 flew over the stadium, after burners was awesome AND very very loud. Aidan burst into tears. I had tried to cover his ears in time but it was just soooo…

Our trip to Arizona...

We drove to Charlotte the night of the 15th and stayed in a hotel. Our flight was leaving at 6:30am the next morning. Here is a picture of how I found the boys sleeping the next morning. It took them forever to go to sleep because they just don't know how to keep their hands to themselves!

Layover in Memphis

The Saturday after we got to Arizona was a very special day. First we had breakfast with Santa. Liam was not a big fan of Santa, despite the candy cane and the stuffed animal.

Then later in the afternoon was Aidan's baptism. He turned 8 in November and we decided to have him baptized in Arizona so that my family could be apart of it since we don't live close. Jared's parents made the trip to Arizona for the special occasion.

We are very proud of Aidan and his decision to be baptized! It was a very special day and we were very lucky to spend it with our families.
