Dear Santa...

I finally got Cameron to sit down and write a letter to Santa...I found this postcard at Macy's yesterday while shopping. What does the post office do with all the letters that come for Santa? This year Cameron wants Pokemon guys--he is asking Santa for Seviper and Geodude (just in case you don't know what Geodude looks like he drew a picture--it kind of looks like Uncle Steve)

Cameron stamped the postcard and headed out to the mailbox






Santa will be successful again this year at our house...thank you Ebay!

Yuen Lui in the making

We went to visit my Aunt Stephanie and cousin Mackenzie yesterday and Cameron got bored real quick. Digital camera can be so handy...here is what he captured.

"You guys act happy"

"Be sad"

(my mom had a hard time being serious)


"Act surprised"

"Pretend like your angry...show me your fists"


"Be sad--again" (the camera was taking forever to take the picture I think my mom was sneaking a peak--luckily I have a new camera on order and Cameron can have the piece of junk)

"Laugh really hard"

Really Cameron I think we have both had enough!!!!!

Vicki is going to kill me for putting this on here but since she never reads my blog she'll never know!

Turkey Day

We had a very small gathering this year...it was actually really nice (to all my family that is reading this you were missed...really!). Cameron loves turkey...he asked on Tuesday and Wednesday if he could have some...when he woke up Thursday morning he said with a big smile, "today we get TURKEY!!!"

Cameron, Aunt Vicki, Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Dori

My mom made these very cute place settings...cornucopias dipped in white chocolate and pistachio nuts with my favorite treat...Reese Pieces.

Games are always a must...this is junior monopoly...I kicked their cans!!!


Turkey 101

What would we do without video chat? My brother Steve moved to CA in October with his family and this is the first Thanksgiving he has been on his own. My brother Keith drove down there to be with them--so there are three adults and not one knows how to cook the bird! So, Steve called this morning to learn how to cook a turkey via web cam. This is high tech technology!
It's a turkey cook off!!!!
My mom told Steve to stick his hand in the turkey and pull out the junk...he got so grossed out and then said his hands won't fit. Yea, right...your arms aren't that big!

YUMMY!

I was messing around online today and saw I could personalize my own Pringles can. They happen to be Cameron's favorite. After I gave it to him, I had a thought it would have made a cute stocking stuffer...oh well!
Every design you create Pringles will donate $1.00 to Children's Miracle Network


I'm on the NICE list

Just in case you were wondering Cameron made it on the NICE list this year. After watching his personalized video from Santa he asked, "Now let's see who's on the naughty list." I think he was disappointed when I told him Santa would not tell us. Check it out... http://family.go.com/santas-list/video/4372-aijones74/

This is my mom

What a great week...it helps that I just had a four day weekend. Cameron had school on Monday so we planned to have lunch together. He asked me to bring chicken-yaki (translation: chicken teriyaki). I asked if we could share one for lunch and he informed me that the lunch lady says no sharing food. I headed out and met him in his classroom with two lunches in hand. We walked to the lunchroom together and he introduced me to everyone--every Kindergartner, every first grader and even lots of second graders, "this is my mom...she came to have lunch with me." He repeated that over and over. He was so proud to have his mom there at school.

Cameron this next comment is for you...when I was 14 I was a beast to my parents. I was rude, inconsiderate, selfish, disobedient and wanted nothing to do with them--ever! Please I'm begging you when your 14 I would appreciate it if you were still this proud to have me as your mom!!!!! I love you!

A night of firsts...

The unbeatable Wolves had their farewell pizza party Friday night!!! Cameron received his first trophy, "I like it cause it's nice and it has my name on it C-A-M-E-R-O-N and I will like my trophy forever because it's so cool!" He was named Most Improved Player!!!

The best news of the evening was when Coach Mike announced that he will be coaching again next year and keeping the boys all together!!! YEA!!!!

I had to take the trophy away at one point because he was sword fighting!!!!

Until next year!!!!!


It was a night of firsts...first trophy and first sleepover. Am I nuts????
Actually it was a lot of fun...Garett and Cameron played great together. They were in bed by 9:50 and up before 6:45--yikes!

A quick subsitute

Blankie or better yet "him" is not allowed to come downstairs anymore. So, that means no more road trips, no more fights about whether it can come into the store or not, no more tears of sadness, and no more worries about it getting lost. We stopped at the store and I looked back and saw this...I guess anything will do!

Cameron loves Dallin & Dallin loves Cameron

Teri and Dallin left today...it was a very fun and eventful 2 weeks. We won't see them again till April (David you better let them come to California) which seems way too long!!!!

We spent the last night at the Super Mall play area...it's the best one around. We went to South Center the night before and the play area there SUCKED!


We are missing you already...it's so quiet around here tonight! No, one yelling me...me around the house or pushing a chair through the kitchen--what are we going to do?




Love you guys!!!!

What not to wear

What you get when a six year old dresses himself...weird!!!
