Christmas Family Home Evening

For Family Home Evening last night 3 of my friends families came over.  We had soup and breadsticks, decorated graham cracker houses, and had a lesson on Christ's birth.  Scriptures were read, songs were sung, and we watched The Nativity accompanied by Amy Grant's "Breath Of Heaven."  We had a fun night and I think the kids enjoyed learning about the reason why we celebrate Christmas.  The Davis household is greatful for our Savior, Jesus Christ.

RIP Butterball

Kali had the opportunity to bring her classroom hamster pet home with her for the Holiday's, but we are sad to say that she is no longer with us.  She passed away Monday, Dec. 22, 2008, due to causes we won't discuss.  We are all very sad, especially Kali.  

Bunkerhill's Christmas Program

Kali's class sang "O Christmas Tree"
Sarah's class sang "Little Drummer Boy"
Kole's class sang "We wish you a Merry Christmas"
The kids had a Christmas program, it was quite entertaining! They have been practicing for weeks, seranading me in the car, at home, practically anywhere they had a chance. 

Decorating our Tree

It was Stella's turn to put the star on the tree, she felt special!
Kris and I had fun wrapping this baby in lights.
Kali, Sarah, and Kole having too much fun decorating the tree
Kole, very serious!
We put up our Christmas tree the Monday after Thanksgiving, an 8 foot noble fir for only $30!  Oh yeah it pays to be living in Christmas tree central!  Kris and I had to do a little rearranging of the ornaments, the tree was a little bottom heavy, especially were Stella was decorating.  Boy do we love Christmas!

Thanksgiving fun

Stella got to do the bumper cars all by herself!
Stella, Kole, Sarah, Kali, and cousin Blake

The kids and the dads went bowling, minature golfing, bumper car bumping, while the girls went a shop, shop, shopping after Thanksgiving, and now we didn't get up at the crack of dawn to go!  We celebrated Thanksgiving at Kris' parents home, and had lots of fun, especially the cousins.

And Finally.........drum roll please

Here is my little belly bump,(well maybe not that little). I can't believe that I am almost half way done!

Stella's New Jacket and Volleyball

Grandma Davis sent this new jacket for Stella.  She absolutely loves it, and thinks that she is so beautiful in it.  (She does look quite cute in it!)

On Saturday the girls had their first volleyball games, they play 4 different teams for 10 minutes each.  They had such a fun time playing, I on the other hand was pulling my hair out wanting to be in the middle of the game to help them.

I am finally posting Halloween pictures.  The kids had fun dressing up.  Kali was Elizabeth from Pirates, Sarah a witch, Kole an army guy, and Stella lady bug.  Sarah and Kole had different costumes but at the last moment decided to be something else.  Things are going well here.  Kris started wrestling, Kali and Sarah are playing volleyball and their first game is on Saturday.  Kole  is wrestling.  Last week he went to a tournament and did great, but not good enough for him.  He is not a peewee anymore, but a bantom, so he wrestles kids a little older.  I am starting to feel a little better, everyday is still different, but definitely better than I was a month ago.

May 25, 2009

Well, I am finally posting some great news, I am pregnant!!  I am 10 weeks along and due May 25, 2009.  The family is all excited to meet this baby.  I haven't been doing good at all.  This is probably, next to Kali, my worst pregnancy thus far.  I have been very sick, on a good day I visit the porcelain queen only twice or less, on a bad day, well I really can't function.  Kris has become really good at being the mom and the dad around here.  I finally got something to help with the nausea and the vomiting, but that medicine makes me super tired and super dizzy.  So I guess I have to decide which is easier.  Kali makes the dinners around here, Sarah baths Stella, reads her books, dressed and ready for bed, Kole plays with my hair, and Stella is my bathing buddy.  (I love taking baths because it makes me feel better for 10 minutes).  Everyday is different and it makes me appreciate my health, which I can't wait to feel healthy again!!!!  I think everyone in the Davis household can't wait either because I am a bear to live with, they never know when I am going to bite their heads off and spit them out.
