Christmas day is always a busy day visiting family! but we love it and wouldn't change our day for anything! We got up the kids saw what Santa brought them! We did our little Christmas fun at our house opening presents and seeing their priceless faces as they opened each surprise! Then it was off to Grandma DeeDee's and Grandpa Fadi's for our breakfast tradition! We love being around family! Had a wonderful time! We spent most the day there! Kids played with their cousins, we talked and laughed and then we all watched trolls! Then it was off to Grandpa Jeff's and Grammy Vicki's for amazing yummy dinner! It was like Thanksgiving all over again! So good! We had a great time visiting and laughing! Our sweet little kids were so good as we went from house to house gone all day! They couldn't wait to get home to play with all their new toys!! Such a wonderful blessed day! Merry Christmas!

Words can not express how proud I am of my sister! She recently ran and completed her very first Marathon! 26.2 Miles! Man i don't even think I could even do the 2 out of the 26.2 miles! Her hard work, determination, and dedication amazes me! She seriously can do anything and everything! We had such a fun night spotting her and Joanna at all the different mile markers! We wanted to give them something to look forward to as they came up to the next mile! They never knew where they would spot us next and that's what kept them going! 26.2 miles is a long time to run! We had a blast! The kids would get so excited to see them running by! We would then hop in our car and Chad would map out what mile marker we should head next! So much fun! Love these Aunties! They are the most amazing! Such an inspiration! We are so proud of you girls!!! You did it!!!
We finally got out to the dunes for our 1st trip of the season!! Oh what an amazing time we had!! The perfect trailer!!! Great weather! and of course great company! love being with our family!! Penny's little razor didn't stop the whole weekend! She had a blast and so did all the kids riding!! She such a good little driver too! We can't wait to get back!!! We love our dune life!
Oh man 1st grade has been a busy start for all of us!! For me it's been an eye opener balancing everything i do from working to being mom and wife to sitting down and working with her on all her homework, sight words, and reading and projects! I didn't realize the time it takes to really work with her on these things and how much needs to be done at home for her to excel! Well boy do we have it down now! We have our systems and she has been doing awesome! I'm so proud of her! The sight words and reading have been a challenge for us! but she is getting it and got an award for reaching her AR reading goal! So proud! Working hard pays off! She is so amazing! Love the determination she has!
Also at school all the 1st graders put on the cutest Thanksgiving Program! Of course Penny sang her little heart out! She did amazing on her speaking part! Just love my little performer!

My Penny and Cash Birthday's are 2 wks apart so this year i decided to through their birthday parties together!! We had one big birthday bash of fun!! Penny turned 6 on July 21st and Cash will be 3 on Aug 11! Can't believe how fast the time goes!! Stop growing you 2!!
Penny wanted a Shopkins Party and Cash wanted a Chewbacca Party! So i got 2 pinatas and had their cakes and cupcakes made in what they each wanted!!! We had a blast! All our family and friends came out to celebrate!! Thank you for spoiling them and making them feel so special!
Their birthday cakes and cupcakes!
Boy were they spoiled! The present opening got a little crazy but they had a blast and that's all that matters! Thanks again to all our family and friends for coming out and partying with us! Thanks for making these 2 Birthday kids so happy!
The Bulloch Family Reunion is always a hit! This year instead of going to Panaca we went up to Cedar City and spent the weekend up at the family ranch on Cedar mountain! It is so beautiful and peaceful up in the mountains! But before we headed up to the mountain we had to get a mini Razor for the kids! We have been wanting one of these for Penny and Cash for a few years now. So since we got our new big trailer we can fit both the big razor and the mini razor! Yay! The perfect weekend to get it too!! That little Razor didn't stop going! Penny is such a great driver too!

We are beyond Excited over here!!! So it's all true!! We are having baby #3!!! Due Jan 22, 2017!! We can't believe it!! I've been so sick and so tired just like when I was pregnant with the other 2!! Penny is so excited we are having a baby!! She's just a little mommy in the making and is the best big sister!!! Everyday she says please please please hope it's a baby girl!! lol!! I was hoping for the same thing!! Not because I don't love my little boy but deep down I have always wanted Penny to have a sister!! Boys can hold their own!! Girls rely on their mom or their sisters!! I have always said if something ever happened to me like how my mom passed away so young I just always wanted a sister for Penny! Sisters are the best! Because my mom isn't here my sisters and I are so close! We rely on each other and call each other in times of need or just girl talk!! Most call their mom... I call my sisters!! With all that said that is why I have always wanted Penny to have a sister! I recently had to get blood work done to test for any genetic problems the baby could have! The blood work came back negative! Such a relief to know our baby is completely healthy!! Also in the blood work they can tell what the sex of the baby is......so......our Wishes and Dreams came true!! We are having a GIRL!! Baby Sister is on her way!! Another Diva in the making!! We are all over the moon excited!! When they told us Chad and I both started to cry of happy tears!! Penny is going to get her Sister!! YAY!
This bottom collage is how we told the kids what the baby was! Boy??? or Girl?? They got to open the little present! Inside the outfit represented what the baby was!! Boy outfit?? or Girl outfit?? Penny did the honors and as you can see in her expression!!!! She was beyond excited!! We all squealed and cried!! We can't wait for baby sister to get here!!
It was a big day in our home when this happened!!! Penny finally lost her 1st Tooth!!! OMG!!!! Forever Penny has wanted a loose tooth! In fact ever since her oldest cousin Chance lost his first tooth she has wanted a loose tooth! Penny was 2yrs old at the time! and what seemed to be forever as the years have gone by everybody around her has lost teeth! In her pre-school class, in her kindergarten class, in her church class, and all her cousins her age have lost more than one tooth at this point and poor little Penny hadn't lost 1 tooth yet!! Now considering she got her 1st tooth at 15mons old I always told her that she would loose her teeth until later... like 9 yrs old because she got them in so late! haha!! Well the day had come!! She was eating a pickle and her top teeth hit her bottom teeth and she complained of her teeth really hurting! 20mins went by and she was still saying her lower teeth hurt! So I checked them out and low and behold the lower left central incisor was loose! We both screamed out in joy and excitement! From that moment she wouldn't keep her hands out of her mouth wiggling and wiggling her loose tooth!! The next day I worked and their babysitter Bailey had an ortho appt at my office and in walks Penny as proud as can be of her loose tooth!! She walked right up to Dr. Doug and told him I have a loose tooth and I'm tired of wiggling it can you just pull it out for me!! She brushed her teeth and helped her self to one of our ortho chairs and waited for Dr. Doug to come over and pull it! As for me i didn't think she would really go through with it! But she is the bravest little girl i know! She was determined that tooth was coming out!! With no numbing gell or shot Dr Doug wiggled out her very 1st loose tooth! She didn't even make a peep!! Who is this child!! I was such a whimp when it came to loosing teeth! haha! She just makes us so proud!! Penny was so excited to get it home and in her tooth pillow so the tooth fairy could come!! She woke up the next morning to find a $2 bill in her tooth pillow!! She was so excited!! She couldn't wait to get to the store to spend it!! Now that's my girl!! haha! Such a brave girl!! You make us so proud!! We love you!
