Okay it has been a long time since I have blogged. I have been busy. I am an early morning seminary teacher and I am 15 weeks pregnant. So Since mid October I have not felt like doing much than lie on the couch or by the white cool bowl in the bathroom. Well I am on the up and up.  So I am going to blog today.

James and Gabby are growing like weeds. James said the funniest thing last week. We got him a doctors kit and he was listening to Aaron's heart with his toy stethescope, he looked up at Aaron and said, "You have a happy heart, it's sick." Then James proceeded to check Aaron's ears and blood pressure, everytime saying, "It's happy, it's sick." Then he gave Aaron a shot and said, "I gave you a shot you cried, but its okay it only hurts a little. Now you get a sticker and a lollypop. Cause you only cried a little." When Aaron told me what had happen I had a good laugh.

Gabriella woke up this morning and I asked her how did you sleep well.
 She said, "Ahuh." 
I then asked, "Did you have good dreams?"
She said, "yesh." 
I asked her, "What did you dream about?"
With a big smile she responded with a big smile, "Jesus Christ." She continued telling me about her dream but I could not understand what she said  was jibber jabber. Eventhough I am sure she knew what she was telling me. It made me really happy.

Last weekend my friend Sara had an extra ticket to go she the snow monkeys and the Black Castle in Nagano Prefecture. It was a really cool experience. I loved it and felt it was the nicest Christmas present. The monkeys were adorable one was quite the bold one when he went up and started to grab at Sara's coat.  There were 4 rules we had to follow while at the monkey reserve. 1- don't feed the monkeys, 2-don't touch the monkeys, 3-don't stare at the monkeys in the eye (they take it as a challenge and will beat you up) and 4-take all the pictures you want! Pretty cool hugh.

Aaron has been busy at work, but he always has time for his family. He is a great dad and husband. He is so thoughtful. We had a great Christmas! Well I better go.
