We had a Lego competition for New Year's Christmas with the Varney's! Landon and the kids created a space station complete with spacemen, space ships and satelites! All the kids added something and had somuch fun! The hours spent building all the Legos were well worth it! Oh the imagination of my family :)
They had a garden and a kitchen that even had lego fish inside!
Merry Christmas 2011! I must admit that buying 4 ties and 1 dress makes it easier on the budget :) The kids loved doing a silly face for their pose and it was very fitting, considering their ages!

Ruthie was in the Nutcracker with Studio R ballet. She was a baffoon - the cute little dancers that come out from under the 'big ladies' skirt! She was so adorable and danced perfectly! We are so proud of our little ballerina. Even her brothers liked the performance!
YES...Blake will be a BIG brother in January. We are so excited that #6 is on the way! James is excited to share his Birthday month - now we'll have 2 in sept, oct, nov and jan! So fun. I'm feeling great and Landon and I couldn't be happier for this great new step in our lives. It's amazing, our Father in Heaven's Plan and timing in all things!! We find out August 9th if we'll be adding a sister or brother to the mix... with 4 boys and 1 girl - the odds are for blue...but we'll see!
Our oldest Varney nephew, Brandon, left for the MTC in Provo, Ut. to serve in the Paraguay, Ascension Mission. The kids loved getting their picture with Brandon, so they could look at it everytime we write letters to him. We are so proud of the righteous example that Brandon is setting for his younger cousins!
Ruthie is in a wodnerful ballet class with Ms. Robbin! We were so excited to see her demonstation and dance with her friends! In only 2 months of lessons, Ruthie really picked up on all of the ballet terms and technic!
