    Johnson Family Christmas Party

    No Comments

    On Friday the 9th we got together with my moms family! Grandma was there and Diana and Wayne and their 3 kids. And Carol and Larry and their 4 kids! That’s all of them. We only had 4 of us Robertson kids and my parents weren’t there either but It was fun to have so many of the Johnson cousins together.

    In Primary Millie and her friend Lucas got to be Mary and Joseph! These little nursery kids are getting ready for Sun Beams!

    Every kid wants a ride in the blocks wagon! and every kid gets dumped out on their head πŸ™‚

    Carrying around the baby Jesus from the nativity πŸ™‚

    and enjoying late nights by the Christmas Tree πŸ™‚

    We took Millie back to the eye dr and got a lesser prescription -she seems to wear her glasses more now…

    One more play with Β the Hancock kids! They even got Ray to dress up!

    Lots of notes like these around the house this time of year! So much excitement and fun.

    And we all went to the wrestling tournament in Provo:

    and did some christmas shopping and In and Out!

    Game night:

    My monday morning mess πŸ™ I cleaned and cleaned and then the weekend happened and I came out to these disasters Monday morning.

    As soon as I decide to stop having kids – stores decide to give expectant moms a special parking space!!

    I might have bought Kelsey this present for her college graduation! it is addicting to the touch.

    Kelsey and I took the younger kids to Shannon’s school Choir Concert in Ogden! The boys had to stay home for wrestling. It was a fun concert and fun to see Miss Robertson direct the Choir πŸ™‚

    Tiago loves the massager πŸ™‚

    Cali and Rose and Ago resting on the stairs:

    Each night at dinner we play the 12 days of Christmas Song and sing with our cups!!

    We delivered a few Christmas CD’s this week!

    Chewy the Elf is here and playing hard. The kids still LOVE this guy.

    And Advent Calendars are in full swing. Even Tiago is loving them.

    Last Night was Ben’s Christmas Party for work. We got to go see Star Wars Rogue One!!!!

    Christmas will be here before we know it! Such a fun time of year – even when the gift is ordered from Amazon and brought to the porch in original box and Rose answers the door πŸ™ BOOOO, parent fail.

    Cali is 8!

    No Comments

    Cali had a birthday and she is just growing up way to fast! We had a fun day but it was a school day so… we opened gifts early and then played after school. We had homemade pizza for dinner, visited with Grandma and Grandpa and then ate cake and ice cream with the Hancocks to end the night.

    Cali is friendly and loves school. She is smart and creative. Last night she made up a Christmas mix and she and Rose practiced and sang it 10 times until they got it right on the video. Cali is good with the kids and loves to play with all of her siblings and cousins and friends. She will be baptized the first Saturday in January and is excited about that. Tonight (10 days late) we are having all of the cousins over for a party.Β Happy Birthday Cali!

    We got a few things done around the hose and let the kids play “elf on the shelf”.

    And we caught the last matinee showing of Moana! We took all of the kids. We ate 4 buckets full of popcorn and drank 8 large sodas. 100$ dollars later we had lots of happy kids. Good movie!

    18 MONTHS

    No Comments

    img_20161126_095521 img_20161129_171828


    Turned 18 months on December 1st.

    Cried for 15 minutes because I wouldn’t let him go to nursery with a cold.

    This kid makes us laugh. He loves to be in the mix with all of the other kids.

    He throws big fits when he wakes up and when you try to confine him but if you give him some space he will just play for hours.

    He still loves his milk and food and weighs a TON – 30lbs.

    He has the best smile. He loves Brewer. He loves to tease. He loves to hit. He often hits other kids that he feels threatened by.

    Tiago plays a mean game of catch and still loves to dribble the soccer ball.

    He doesn’t talk yet but he babbles quite a bit now and will try to repeat when he’s in the right mood – BUT he undertsands everything. It always amazes me how much they “get it” at this age.

    He still sleeps in our closet with his special blanket and music box. he sleeps from 8pm – 8am pretty much every night. He is finally starting to get a mouth full of teeth He had 8 for forever, Now he has maybe 15?

    The Friday after Christmas: We met Pete and Amanda Family and went to Beck’s Tree Farm!

    img_20161125_092656 img_20161125_092824

    We searched and wondered if we’d find anything and finally made our pick:

    img_20161125_094752 img_20161125_094920 img_20161125_100034

    We came home and started setting up Christmas:

    Packer made this cool tree out of his old craft box stuff:


    And then the kids watched like 5 or 6 Christmas movies! and we slept out by the tree. One of the best nights of the year! πŸ™‚ TRADITIONS πŸ™‚

    Thanksgiving Day

    We spent the day at Mom and Dads with all of the UT Nettys! Tiago carried the stuffed animal turkey around all day and loved the food.

    img_20161124_134140 img_20161124_134141 img_20161124_134145

    assigned seats:

    img_20161124_133814Β img_20161124_134227 img_20161124_134311

    The food was delicious and we had fun just hanging out all day. We did a puzzle and watched football and the kids played. Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Bill and the Wrights were also there. Grandma got lots of kisses from the Mustache men! Did I mention that we ate a lot of pie?

    img_20161124_135014 img_20161124_151915 img_20161124_173425 img_20161124_193531

    I am so Thankful for my family and for the Gospel plan and for all of the little comforts that we take for granted most days.
