Christmas 2009

Santa Clause came to the May house this year. Damon,Andee and Katelynn were obviously good little boys and girls. Hmmmm...ya, i guess they were alright. Damon woke up nice and early, shall we say 6? I put him back to bed, 2 min later, out of bed again, back to bed, 1 min later out of bed this time, he said he had to go pee. The little sneak ran downstairs to use the bathroom when there was a perfectly good one upstairs. Tyler went down to find him jumping on the mini trampoline that Santa brought. We couldn't get his initial reaction on video because he tricked us! I had the flu that started Christmas Eve, Christmas and the day after. So glad Tyler was home to take care of the kids. Other than that it was a perfect day. So fun to see how excited the kids get about Christmas.

Damon's Presents...

Katelynn's things....

Andee's presents...

Santa made us a gingerbread house while he was here. That man is amazing, I don't know how he does it all!

Andee got these shoes from Santa, and didn't take them off all day! I caught her mid sneeze in this picture. She cracked me up all day long in those heels and that hat. What a hoot! The other day I had to run to Wal-mart and she insisted wearing her high heels there.

4 months

Little Katelynn is 4 months old. Wow, and I love her more than ever! Everytime we make eye contact, the biggest, cutest smile breaks across her face. Today was warm(40degrees as compared to the single digits) so we took full advantage and went on a nice long walk. The kids loved it! Here is a picture of Katelynn from her first winter walk. So cute, I can't get enough of her chubby little cheeks!

This girl loves to eat! She will use her hands until she gets every last drop cleaned off her plate. I have to scrub her spot every single time, she is always this messy!

This boy isn't so much into eating. It's amazing how little he lives on! And I never have to clean his spot, he is the cleanest eater, so careful.

Andee's 2nd birthday

Andee's 2nd birthday was so fun. She was so cute and had a blast. She got to celebrate it twice this year. First in Rexburg over Thanksgiving weekend with my side of the family, and second here in Sandy on her real birthday with Tyler's parents. She had so much fun and loved being center of attention. Damon wanted so bad to open her presents for her. He had such a hard time just watching. We had such a fun night. Thanks to all for the awesome gifts. She loves her new toys.

The girl of the night!

Damon and Grandma May playing with Andee's new toys.

Worn out after so much fun, Andee and Grandpa May had to get in some cuddle time.

3 months on Friday the 13th!

She's 3 months old, where did the time go? Love her!

When I was younger, my bros and I would make "leaf houses" out of all the leaves on the ground. I haven't done this for probably 20 years, it was so fun and the kids loved it! They would pretend to go to the bathroom, sleep in their bedrooms and sit in the family room. I told them what each room was and this picture does not do my "leaf house" justice. It took up the whole front yard. It was awesome!

Tummy Time?

Who does tummy time, really? I for sure don't and the other night I kind of felt bad I never give her the chance to be on her tummy, so I tried expecting the worst and this is what I got....

Katelynn's first laugh

Halloween, Halloween, what does it mean?

I am a total Halloween party pooper this year, lame, I know. Just wasn't feelin it this year, so I pretty much didn't go to any effort with costumes. Damon is very particular about being Dracula every year, maybe one of these years he'll acutally let me dress him up and dye his hair and put the make-up on him. Andee was a princess only because that was something I knew she'd wear other than her throwing fits, and I wasn't even going to dress up until I saw Tyler's get-up, so I pulled out my old witch costume from last year. I'm so boring sometimes. Tyler left from Phoenix yesterday(Friday) at 5pm and got home today(Saturday) at 3:30am. We get to see him for a few days before he heads off to Denver for a month now. He brought his costume back with him. Ever heard this song, "Who let the dogs out? Ruff, Ruff, Ruff, Ruff" That's me, pullin my ugly scary face...ya. There's my cuties going trick or treating! I thought it was so cute watching them walk away. I'm kind of glad we live in a neighborhood where we can just walk door to door. After Damon was done trick or treating, he was so excited about answering the door for other trick or treaters. It was so funny, he was that excited everytime.

First Snowfall

Tuesday we had our first snow of the season, it snowed ALL day long! Damon loved it and played outside for quite a while. Andee like it for about 5 minutes until she realized how cold she was. was all melted by Thursday

Damon Damon Damon

I think Damon's exhausted. For the past couple of months, Damon's been night walking (I guess that's what you would call it). At first I would find him in the weirdest places in the middle of the night. In the middle of Andee's room on the floor, in the hallway, I've even heard him walking around downstairs. I'll ask him what he's doing and he doesn't know or he'll say, "i'm just thinking". My reply to that is, "it's 3 in the morning, let's go think in your bed." It started making me nervous, so I told him whenever he gets out of bed to come into my room. That is what he's been doing for the past month or so. I'll hear him breathing or coughing or something and find him passed out in our rocking chair or in the middle of the floor. I'll wake him up and take him back to his room. This happens at least 4 times a week at least once or twice a night. It's actually very annoying, but I don't think he realizes what he is doing, so I can't get mad and can't really do anything about it. So today he got a little cut on his wrist, might I empahsize little. He refuses to wear band-aids so I put a wet rag on it. He wanted to lay on the couch, I put Katelynn's blanket on him, he didn't want it cuz it was a girl blanket. I took Andee upstairs for a few minutes to change her diaper and came down to find Damon soundly asleep (with the girl blanket). He hasn't taken a nap in a few months, and those of you who know Damon know he's not one to sit down and relax. I think the poor kid is exhausted from being up a couple times a night for the past couple months. So even though it is 4:30, I guess I'll let him sleep for a little while.

Look at those long, thick eyelashes!

Goodbye Uncle Shawn

My brother Shawn has been here for a few days, he's such a great helper. He's babysat, taken the kids out and just helped take care of them. He's going to make a great dad someday. Anyways, he is flying out to Chile tomorrow for a couple of weeks, we sure are going to miss him. Here is a pic of him playing a computer game and Damon and Andee watching, eating their "licolish". For some reason they loved watching him play his game.

Damon's haircut

I gave Damon a haircut today, couldn't stand his hair anymore.


Damon AFTER: I tried going for the faux hawk style...
