These are our dwarf hamsters. I've never been fond of hamsters (or rodents of any kind,) but these little girls (they're sisters) are so cute and fun to watch. Lauren named hers "spot," it has no spots but whatever floats her boat. Thomas is convinced his is a boy (because of how long the tail is) and named his "lightning." I'm not sure where he got that from , ha ha. I am loving them actually. Very low maintenance and bring entertainment for hours, well 30 minutes anyway!
Santa brought new bikes and a barbie convertable and a firetruck for Lauren and Thomas...now picture overload for grandma and Papa...... Christmas morning with their santa gifts. Lauren ran down the hall waking up Thomas saying "Santa came, Santa came! He even knew I didn't need training wheels and you did!"

anything McQueen this boy loves!
Lauren opening her very own hamper.... they really do love them even though her face kinda says, "HHMMM what is this?"

Christmas was fun and simple this year. I like it that way. The kids were a little confused when I rang the christmas bells to wake up, because I had just told them to go to bed. (we did our christmas on christmas eve because Mark had to work the next morning, and my desire to wake up at 4/5 a.m was not very strong.) They didn't get their santa gifts until Christmas morning so they still got the excitement of waking up to some presents. Thank you everybody for your thoughtfullness in giving! I hope everybody had an enjoyable CHRISTmas, He is the reason for the season.
AJOOOOO! (to be said with much enthusiasm, kinda like the yahoo commercial voice YAaaHOOOO. Now try again "AJooOOOO". Good you got it! Thats where we make our simple life and we LOVE IT! Life is good, church is true, and the book is blue!Mark says I have to put Joseph Smith was a prophet too. I didn't know that was part of the ryhme, but I like it.
