Hannah is 11 years old today. I can not believe she is getting so grown up and muture. She is such a sweet,brilliant,funny,creative girl. Lately she has been making claymation movies. They are really good! I have know idea where she comes up with this stuff. I will have to post one sometime. She amazes me at how smart and creative she is. In some ways she is just like me and in others I am amazed at her. I am so thankful that I have her. She is a great friend to Chase and a great older sister to her little brothers. For years she has been teaching the little guys "pre-school" and does a really good job. They love it and actually learn all of there letters and get to do fun crafts with her. She will be a great mom some day. Happy Birthday Sissy Bee.

I am so homesick right now. It is so dark and dreary and wet here. I think by January I am ready for spring.This is as bright as it gets all day.(picture) I have many months before I will see the sun again and I miss the light and warmth. I have been having such a hard time lately. I miss all of my family and friends. I can go days without the phone ringing or talking to anybody. I always had stuff to do in Az. I had so many friends and family members to do stuff with and hang out with. I don't have that here. I am so lonely. I miss running with Kim and Jill. I miss doing crafts with Kim. I miss sitting out in the front yard with Kim watching our kids play. I miss going to the park with the neighborhood and visiting with everyone. I miss working out with Tiff. I miss going out on dates with Chad and Tiffer. I miss my kids friends for them. Especially the older ones. I miss my kids being able to walk across the street to school. I miss all day kindergarten. I miss hanging out with Sarah. I miss Sunday dinners at our families. I miss going to any store and running into people I know. I miss going to HomeGoods with my sister in laws. I miss my kids playing with all of there cousins. I miss people knowing Emma and seeing her grow up. I miss playing ultimate Frisbee with all of our friends. I miss if I needed anything I could call anyone and have them there to help. I miss not being able to go to family events and parties. I miss family members not updating there blogs so I can see what is going on. (Big Hint to everybody) Sorry this is such a downer. I really am okay. I just want to be home so bad right now. It is hard to move somewhere where you don't know people and it is so completely different than where you are from. It is hard to be away from family. I miss everyone!!! In a week and a half we are meeting Chase's family at Disneyland and I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had Ammon's two year appointment today. He is 35 inches tall and 30lbs 5oz. He is in the 50% for height and the 50-75% for weight. He was such a pill he screamed the whole time. we had to hold him down to weigh and measure him, and of course for his shots.
During break we went up to the pass to go sledding. It was during a snow storm and it was freezing. Emma was outside for about 2 min. every time the wind blew and snow fell on her face she gasped for breath. She hated it. Emma got to sit in the car with Ammon. Ammon went down the hill once with Chase and got scared and said" Ammon goes night night" he would rather take a nap then sled. We still had fun, but did not stay long.
