A Long Time Comin'......

I really cant believe how long it has been since I have updated our blog.. But today is the day! We have been up to so much since Sept. I will attempt to play catch up through photos! I will start here with the most recent happenings...

We went to my parents ward party and got to see Santa! JJ was so cute, I was so proud of how brave he was and went right up to Santa and told him exactly what he wanted for Christmas, which actually turned out to be a funny story...
So, JJ sits on Santa's lap and tells him that he wants a Transformer for Christmas, as usual, Santa just nods his head and tells him to be a really good boy. Well, that is just not good enough for this cute son of mine.. He gets off Santa's lap and stands there. Santa tells him to get his candy cane and have a Merry Christmas, and JJ says (with his hand reached out) "I SAID I wanted a Transformer, where is it?" We left the room and he said "Mom, I asked Santa to give me a transformer and he didnt even give it to me!" I think we need to explain this Christmas thing a little more in detail!!

This is a true JJ photo op. Always the ham of the party!

I am so bugged that this picture turned out sideways because I SO wanted you to enjoy the beatiful tree.. (and the little boy in the corner picking his nose!!) It has become an obsession. Like Im talking OCD... his nose begins to bleed before he stops!!!!!

This is our cute little stocking shelf. I was just a little proud in how cute I made it, so, for your enjoyment.....

This is how JJ watches TV. He gets all situated on the coffee table and the says "Hey mom, come cover me up!"

Thanksgiving this year was SO MUCH FUN! We got to spend it with the entire (well almost) family! We were left without the company of Ronny and Sherry and fam, which was a big bummer, but we got to enjoy the 5 of us siblings together! Ricky, Robin and kids came out from Oklahoma with the three little ones. We had Jason and Ricky and Michelle. Robert, Tonya and kids, Leslie Brad Zoe and Trevor, and of course Lisa Shane and kids.. and us four. And of course Mom and Dad. It was such a fun weekend, I am so grateful for the family I have been blessed with, and wish I could be with them all a WHOLE lot more!

Here is JJ playing in the leaves Uncle Shane was raking on Thanksgiving Day....

For Halloween this year, we got to go down and spend it with Les and Brad and their family. We had such a good time, and it was a fun thing to do something different and spend a holiday down there with them. JJ was Batman and Kyli was a fairy bat. They had so much fun. We got to go around Les and Brad's neighborhood, and the kids got some major loot! JJ ate his candy for two weeks! While we were down, we also got to have a homemade breakfast with Joey, Andrea and Jackson. Courtesy of Joey the cook! Man it was amazing, I will forever crave those potatoes Joey! After we went trick or treating, we were treated to dinner by Ed and Terrie with the Johnson Clan at Chapala, and my was it was the perfect ending to such a great weekend with family! We got home pretty late, and this little guy was out the whole time!

About a month or so ago, we had a big mishap in our home.. One evening JJ was being a little naughty (I know, can you believe it??). He got himself into a little trouble and stomped upstairs in a huff, slammed his bedroom door, and locked it. About 2.5 seconds later, we heard a roof crashing thud and ran upstaiars as fast as we could. At that point, all I could hear was blood curdling screams and JJ pleading for me to get him out and help him (every mothers WORST nightmare). We were stuck and couldnt get it! As soon as we rounded up a comb and got into the room, we found that his 80 pound dresser on top of him and all I could see was his left hand trying to get free. Between the screams and the cries, Jeff lifted the dresser just enough so I could get him out. The first thing I checked were for teeth and blood. Everything seemed in place, so we moved on to comforting him! He was so shaken up and scared. Thank God he was OK and nothing major happened to him, it could have turned out so much worse. He looked pretty beat up and had blood blisters on his little face and arms where the drawers pinched him. He sported a black eye and some bumps for a couple days, but all was ok...

For Jeffs birthday in October, Joey and Andrea and Jackson came up for some par-tay-n.. This one turned out to be an interesting one! We went to Sushi on Friday night ( FABULOUS!) and then went to a haunted house for Jeffs bday, we had such a blast. It was the scariest haunted house ever, Andrea was out of control scared I thought at one point she may have peed her pants! On Friday, we met up with Kim Bryan and kiddos and visited Staheli Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. Tons of fun, the boys had to much fun and JJ got to ride a horse for the first time! Then Friday night, Andrea and I decided to make some spooky halloween cakes and treats for Jeff bday party and Trentons baptism the next day. Were were talking about how we had been feeling lately and she said "lenzi you are so pregnant..lets go get a test!" So Joey and Jeff went to Lins and came home bearing pee sticks. Wouldnt ya know, I peed on that stick and it told me I was prego! We went to the dr about a week later and low and behold we are due June 9,2010 with little Johnson number 2!!!! It was fun cause everyone was there at the baptism when I got to tell them what I got Jeff for his birthday!

I just thought this pumpkin looke like a butt. Enjoy.

Betcha cant guess who my family thinks is the village idiot!

Kim, me and Andrea :)

The one and only time in Andrea's life she has looke huge! hahahaha :)

Me and my little guy! I cant believe he will be 3 years old on Saturday. He is growing so fast! He has taught me so much, mostly patience! I truely would be a lost soul with out this guy.. he truely is my moon and my stars.. Im beginning to wonder how I will handle two of 'em though!

This is some cute shelf decor me and Andrea just whipped out like pros :) I think its fabulous, so I thought you might like it too :)

So, hands down my pop is the bomb. He made this for us! It is a mule strap nailed on to a gun holder. A little leather to bind the name board that he carved himself and wa-laa.. you have an awesome original masterpiece! I love it :) I have letters and a big christmas BELIEVE star hanging from it right now. Something I will love and treasure for a long time :)

This is about all I remember for now.. Of course, so much more has happened in the time since I last posted. But, you cant win em all :) I really hope to keep this blog up to date better, I really hope to have a record for my family to look back on and remember all our fun family memories! We hope everyone has a happy holiday season and a very Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
