Show Some Respect

As a cop Jason has had to go through a lot. He's been beat up, pepper sprayed in the face, and the worst yet -- shocked by 50,000 volts of electricity.

And this was all done to him by other cops.


For training, of course.

A few days ago Jason brought home a DVD and asked me to watch it. It was footage of him going through taser training by getting tased. It was not pretty. I really didn't want to see that.
Then he lifted up his shirt and showed me a burn mark from where the electricity entered his body, and another burn from where it left. They'll never go away.

"I can't believe they made you do that!" I said. It doesn't make sense to me.
He just shrugged.

So the next time you get pulled over try to be nice. You never know what these guys might have been through that day.

"King" Day

Today was my Dad's birthday.

Hunter kept asking when we were going to Grandpa's party. I told him that Grandpa was in California and wasn't having a party. That was unexceptable to my 5 and 2 year olds who LOVE birthday parties. So we had a birthday party for him anyway!

They love to sing happy birthday and blow out candles.
Happy Birthday Dad. This one's for you!

Chrismas 2009 Continued...

After my family left we did Christmas again, this time with Jason's family:

And Hunter's Christmas wish came true:

Ok, not a lot. But we were still able to do this:
Grandpa got a little crazy with Hunter... who loved every minute!

And then Jason and Craig had the brilliant idea of trying out the plastic alligator teeter-totter.

It was hard to keep it balanced and not fall off-- but Jason finally got the hang of it!

It was fun even though there wasn't much snow. We literally had to drag the kids back inside the house. So sad! We're praying for more snow!

Due to Jason's inability to get time off for Christmas my family came to us this year.  This is how it went down.

Christmas Eve:

Making a Gingerbread House with Uncle Raj

That night we read "The Night Before Christmas" and then the boys got to open one present each.  They got these soft bathrobes.

Then we set out milk and cookies for Santa

and had a goodnight tickle. 

Christmas Morning:

In the morning Hunter found out that Santa had listened to him and brought him not just one, but two sleds.  Uncle Raj also brought us one.  He must be psychic. 

The boys were patient while they waited for the adults to wake up so they could open presents. 

Raj promptly began "showing" the boys how to play with their Lincoln Logs.  (He was feeling nostalgic and tried to steal them.) 

McKay got into his stocking and found the chocolate. 

Finally they found the "Piece de Resistance" that Santa had hidden in the laundry room!

Later Omar's family came over from Spokane for Christmas dinner.  McKay was excited to hold his baby cousin Gabriel. 

That night we went to their hotel and let the kids swim in the hotel pool. 

A great way to end an awesome day!
