The Eve

We always open the gifts from my parents, brother and aunt on Christmas Eve. After our fancy dinner, where we eat "at the red table".


Kareoke for Xbox.

The Large Inman Clan

Grandma made 37 pillow cases this year, with each Grandchild's name emboidered on it. Tommy loved his!
Well, duh, 37 grandkids...one of them was bound to start a pillow fight!

Brittany, Taylynn and Lacey, my oldest nieces. Beautiful girls!


Morgan in the back, with her "we're just friend" RM ;)



Some Christmas Treats and Crafts
















The Visit




No Nicky, too scared this year! No Alex, too old.


Maddy's Flag Football

Maddy played Flag Football this fall. She was the only girl on her team and in the league for her age. She had a blast and pulled quite a few flags of those macho boys...which made it even worse for them "you got your flag pulled by a GIRL!!!"

Vote for me



I entered a contest on http://www.mykirklands.com/ I can win a gift card, I have to have the most votes (well, the first 5 people) by Saturday. So go there, click on Contest, then "most viewed" and then on "love it" for my picture, with the name mucheinman. I clicked on it a bunch of times to be in the most viewed to make easy for people to find it, but I can only click once/day on the heart (although I think the winners of last week cheated because they ended up with 17,000 votes, hello???). So be my friends and vote for my picture. You can (and should) vote everyday, from every computer you have and pass the word. And remember, I still have my 42DD bra to thank you for your support!!!

Nicky's 4th

Merci Papy et Granny.














Saint Nicolas

On December 6th, Saint Nicolas came to our home all the way from Belgium. He never forgets his little Belgian/American kids living in Arizona. She shoes were filled with little goodies.


Alex is missing, he was being a lazy teenager and didn't want to get up!

Westgate

We stopped by Westgate, after a trip to see Grandma on the other side of town.









RideMakerZ

We took Nicky to RideMakerz, the Build-a-Bear for boys! I was kinda bored, but I asked my husband what he thought, and apprently, it is very cool for a boy! You pick your car, your tires, your rims and whatever else you want to add to your over-priced piece of plastic car. We went for the cheapest for a first car ($15.00), but Nico was very pleased. The car made noise and had lights. You can make it into a remote control for an extra $25. It is located by Westgate (see other post), by the Cardinals'stadium, in Glendale.Getting the registration and the plate. Happy Boy

Who do you know?

I was just randomly thinking, which is my main occupation, since being a SAHM doesn't necessarily require scheduled productive thinking, really. I was trying to think and see if I knew anyone famous. Well, I don't, I just don't. It always makes me so mad to dream about being BFF with a famous person, to wake up and realize that THAT star didn't dream about ME! I don't have a need to know one, but it would only be fair that they dream about me if I dream about them! I know our society makes heroes out of the wrong people, our true heroes are in Iraq and Afghanistan, on our streets catching criminals and people falling off buildings, in classrooms everyday and at home with babies...all for a meager pay. But hey, isn't still fun to meet a face that you see everywhere, to see them in real for real ;)
So who do you know? I know someone that knows someone that went on Oprah. I know someone that went to school with Kid Rock. I know someone that knows someone that knows Stephanie Meyer (she is from AZ). I saw Jay Leno in Beverly Hills, going home in his blue Dodge Viper, because we had bought a stupid tourist map showing where the stars live. He waved to us (are we BFFs then, does he dream about hanging out with me then?). I had dinner with a famous singer in Belgium, Barzotti...hmm, yeah, you're not impressed. My brother rubbed shoulders with Brad Pitt...that requires a little explanation: he was at a flight simulator in Paris (he's a pilot for the Belgian Air Force and they do training there) and bumped into some guy. His friend and colleague told him, casually, that it was Brad Pitt he just bumped. My brother didn't believe him, so went on. But then, they got a little curious and went back. It was indeed the hottie actor and his jolie wife. Pitt has a pilot license, and since they live in France, he needed to redo one for France, or something like that. I asked my brother if I could touch his shoulder (left) and then sell his shirt on EBay. So, who do you know? And if you don't, when I'm rich and famous, you can say that you knew me when...

On Saturday, the 21st of November, Elly made the decision to be baptized and become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (same as our church, don't worry, she didn't go off and join another church, but kids get baptized at 8 years old so that's why it was just now!). It was very nice and very beautiful, just like her. Maddy gave the opening prayer, Alex the closing. Her Grandma and Grandpa both talked. She was baptized by her dad, and confirmed by him, Grandpa, Uncle Tom and Rick, our Bishop and Brother Cardon.
Some of her friends came for her too, very sweet of them. Cute Savanah, Cassidy and Lexy.




Happy Eternal Family ;)The party afterwards.



When Elly came out of the water (the baptizm is by full immersion), I helped her to get dried off. I wrapped her in a towel and hugged her. She was beaming, she starred at me with her big beautiful green eyes and I know without a doubt that that little girl of mine felt the holy spirit deep inside of her as much as I did. I saw pure joy in her face, not the same joy that kids have when they get a new toy or a fat ice cream, but the joy of the gospel. It was a very special moment for me and for her. I am so grateful to have her in my life, that she has such a sweet spirit that we get to witness everyday.
