Max Po Southam

We also surprised the kids the day after Christmas and took them to the Pet store to pick out a pet for our family.  They have wanted a dog forever, but I’m very allergic so we decided to try out a guinea pig.  So far they have LOVED him, it seems to be a good fit for our first furry pet.  His name is Max Po Southam but we call him Po.

Christmas Joy!

We spent Christmas at home this year, with just our little (big) family.  This year the kids made each other presents, it was really cool to see what they all came up with.  Kaylynn sewed everyone and pillow and made them each and individual gift too.  Including a super cool wooden sword for the boys and flower barrettes for the girls.  Paytyn made everyone a treasure chest out of popsicle sticks.  Tanner made everyone picture drawn on a piece of wood that he then made into magnets and Marriner and Aftyn gave everyone homemade playdough. It was a great Christmas.
