I loved this picture of Santa, but I love the picture of Christ even more. I hope that we all remember the true meaning of Christmas. Its so easy to get caught up in the Santa thing and presents when you have kids. I am so greatful for our Savior and hope we all make sure our kids know what its all about. I love you all.
I dont know what they like to do more, ride or play in the huge sand box. Brecken and Tate have so much fun hanging out together at the dunes. They love to ride and cheer for their dads as the go fast up the hill or ride wheelies. Chad was messing around and got bucked off and Tate made me turn around because he needed to see that Chad was back on his bike. Tate was really brave this trip. I thought since it had been a while that he would be nervous. He was telling me to go faster and saying weeeeee up and down all the hills.
We love to go back to the hill and watch all the enertainment that goes on. Luckily Jessica wasnt the entertainment this time. She stayed on her quad the entire time and didnt break any flags. Good Job Jess. We did get to watch a rail roll down comp hill a couple of times. Those things are amazing how safe they are. They both jumped out and were just a bit sandy. The front tire was bent out and the windshield shattered but thats it as far as we could see.
Dave and Jessica are so much fun to have down their. We are glad Dave bought a bike so they will be able to come all the time now. We had thought that we might not find a place to camp because it gets so crowded. It was crowded for sure but we found a spot with no problem. I think this is the first year we didnt get stuck trying to get in and out of camp.
Tylee did good as well. We dont take much of a break from riding so this is her nap time. Looks pretty comfy to me. Thanks to the Butlers we camp in comfort. Its nice to have a potty and sink to wash your hands and faces. Thanks Julie for taking care of us. You guys are the best and we appreciate you guys sharing your space with us. Brandon is the worlds best hamburger maker. Im always impressed and Friday night was no exception. Tylee kept climbing on Breckens quad and wanting to go. When i took her for a ride on it she kept taking my hands off the handle bars wanting to do it herself.
Yes I know we look a little to chippr to be taking this picture. Thanks Jess for bending down so your not towering over me.
Friday night we went back to Yuma and stayed at a hotel. I took a forever shower. It feels so good to shower after a day of riding. The kids were asleep before we even got to the road. They didnt enjoy being woken up and having to take a shower. Luckily they both fell back to sleep farely easy and slept well. I had laugh at Ty when she fell asleep. She was out cold.
Here they are clean, rested and happy ready start the day. Little did they know it would be so windy. Its not bad for Tate because he will keep his goggles on but I tried to put some on Ty and she just took them off. She did good for the most part but her little cheeks are so wind burned. Poor Mindy her girls were miserable. We ended up heading home earlier then we had planned. I didnt get any pictures of Ted and Mindy but their girls are in this last one. They are so fun to have down there as well. The girls are so funny I could here them telling her "good job mom," "you can do it" and giving her thumbs up. The kids all had a blast being together. All in all it was fun even if the weather wasnt the best. We are ready to go again. By the way Brooks ended up staying home with my mom to help her decorate for Christmas. I let her pick if she wanted to come or stay with gma and gpa and she chose them. She had a ton of fun having a sleep over with Trey and Tori and going to the Suns game. Thanks mom and dad. She is lucky to have you both and values her time with you guys. Sorry this was a novel!!! PS We missed yo Brad and Summer and girls.
I think there are alot of bikers with vet appreciation. This was the majority of the parade. Dad how about one of these paint jobs to go along with your jacket!!!
Thank goodness these waves are good bye!!

I went outside to check on Tate and Brecken and I found them soaking wet and covered in mud. Tate loves to be outside and when he is in the backyard I kind of let him just have his fun and dont worry about the messes being made. They had dug a big hole up against the house and filled it with water. It wasnt deep but enough where they could get filthy. Julie is propably wondering if i watch her kids when they are here. I promise I do. They have so much fun together its fun to see them play. There clothes are almost dry and Im hoping they are not to stained. Check out Tates hair in these pics it was covered. I had to wash it 3 times. I love that they are such boys and love to be dirty and crazy. Some moms may not like that but I love it. The dirtier the better, thats what baths are for. Tate is outside most every day covered in dirt and happy as can be. He wouldnt have it any other way!!
Ta Da here they are all clean!!!!!
