It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Wow has it really been that long...

Since my last post...

-Mike moved in to his apartment in Oklahoma where he will be living Sunday night through Thursday night each week while he is working down there.

-Tiffany turned 12. I don't seem to have any pictures from that though.

-I had a NEW MOON Girls Night out with my friends.  It was a total blast!!!

-We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Mike's parents, his sister Kari and her family and his sister Debbie and her family from California.

-Made candy with mom Sims, Kari and Tammy.  It was a full day with lots of chocolate and fun times for all.

-Kaylee had a birthday. She turned 14, had a big party and a great time!!

-The boys had their Holiday Concert for school.

-Mike's company party took the two of us to Colorado Springs for the party and a night away without the kids.  It was so relaxing!

-I turned 38...did I really just say that? Ugh I am sooo old!

-We attended the ward Christmas Party where we were asked to perform a skit as a family.  Each of us was given a character of some sort and had to act out the story as it was being told completely impromptu.  Jacob was a dog in the skit and true to his nature, he crawled around the stage lifting his leg as a dog would to pee on everything in sight.  Despite being completely humiliated as a mother I was quickly able to see the humor in the situation and was so glad when others from the audience told me how cute they thought it was. Once again I found myself saying "Oh Jacob!!"

-Tiffany made the 6th grade varsity basketball team. Practices start after the holiday break.  Go Wildcats!

-Kaylee, Ryan and Jacob went snowboarding for the first time. I wasn't there so there are unfortunately no pictures of this great day.  BUMMER!

-The girls had their middle school Choir concert.

-We had Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations and big meals.  Christmas Eve we had Kari and Deron and Deron's parents Craig and Linda over for dinner and festivities.  We even had a special guest stop in with presents for everyone.  It was so much fun.  We had a big dinner of ham and potatoes with all the extra goodies.  On Christmas day we had a big fried turkey dinner with all the fixings.  We had a great Christmas!!

-We went sledding/practice snowboarding at the hill at the park.  All the kids got some fun practice snowboards for Christmas.  Even Kyle was snowboarding down the hill.  It was so much fun!!!

-We had Jacob's 8th birthday.  I can't believe he is 8 years old.  WOW the time flies!!

-And we rang in a new year with Mike's parents and his sister Teresa and her family and Pete and his family. Hooray for 2010.  Hopefully it will be a good year. ( and maybe I will be better about blogging than I have been the last few months)

-Mike spent almost two full weeks at home with us.  It was great!!!
