 Any holiday is so fun with kids and Blakely loves to make cute valentine's since she is the queen of love!  Seriously this girl loves everyone and it's one of her best qualities.  She is always thinking of others and making people happy with her laugh or smile!  Jett is either a cheese ball for the camera or is not interested and unfortunately I got the ladder on this day, but once they started jumping off the bed he was in heaven and I got some smiles.  I love sending out a cute valentine's card and we had an adorable one that I just printed actually from Costco and was so impressed.  


 We started January off with a bang!  My sister and her family stayed with us and it was so much fun to have some company.  Scott of course had to buy the whole firework store and the kids had a blast and were in bed at 8:30 so us adults could hang out!  Perfect people to spend New Years with!

 My kids loved spending time with their cousins and they spent a lot of time playing dress up and running around like wild animals.  

 Jett is just way too much fun and definitely has a mind of his own and knows what he wants!  He's a genius on the ipad and I usually find him playing in the sink or cupboard.  He cracks me up all day long.

 Blakely got her first loose tooth just months after turning 5!  Way too young!!!  I had to hurry and get some pics of her before she enters the awkward stage with missing teeth.  Her first tooth hang by a thread for days until she finally had the guts to yank it out herself.  Cutest video ever.

 Showing me her tooth hanging by a thread.

Bell Christmas 2013

 POLAR EXPRESS:  We started out the Bell Family Christmas taking the kids on the train.  I definitely would say that this was a highlight!  Everyone was in great moods and we had a great time!  A new tradition for sure!  Some loved Santa and some weren't too sure so that was fun to watch.

 The kids loved this elf the most and smothered her.  They basically took over the train like usual and had a dance party.

 We did get some snow and enough was on the roads that we went sledding behind the truck that night!  
 Grandma Rachelle had a huge menu planned for the week.  The kids made homemade pizza and the Rice Krispie trees were a hit with all the candy!!!

 This was our first attempt at the Christmas story.  Grandma had got all this fabric and we were able to make some fun costumes.  The kids actually did pretty well considering how young they all are.

 Blakely was a perfect Mary and Porsha a perfect angel.
 It all ended with suckers in the boys hands to try and keep them still and quiet but hey we tried!!!
 The classic picture of all the kids in their new christmas pajamas for Grandma!!!  Tradition every year.
 Christmas eve we exchanged one gift and it was fun to watch to see how many Bell's it took to put together Jett's new bike.
 The adults christmas pajama tradition!  This is what it looked like quietly on christmas eve before the kids woke up at the crack of dawn.

 The kids trying to wait patiently to go down the stairs.  Blakely snuck down we think at like 5 in the morning and already saw everything!!!  
 It was definitely chaotic with 8 kids under 5 and most of them wanted each others toys and aren't too good at sharing!  It was a christmas to remember and my kids enjoyed it very much!  I loved watching Jett!

I love christmas so much and I hope my kids grow up and enjoy it as much as I did as a child!
