If...

If you are wondering why I haven't been blogging lately, here are some of the reasons.

If you are wondering what we did with our old computer...If you don't give your kids sledge hammers and free reign to "trash" your old hard drive...you are really missing out.
-
If you are wondering what Branson and I did on Halloween day...
If you didn't jump and play in the leaves and take cute pictures in October, well it's too late cause it's December now and what leaves are left are all soggy gross.
-
If you are wondering what my kids dressed up for Halloween, and I know it has been killing you to know...
If you tell an 8 year old girl she can be whatever she wants, so long as it comes from her dress up box and doesn't cost anything, she will be a rock star.
If your younger sister Alison still has the Teddy Bear costume that all of your other kids wore on their first Halloween, and it is still up in her attic a month after you have mentioned it to her and it is the day of Halloween, than you dress up your toddler as a little green monster.
If your teenager has a dress up party to go to than he probably went as the joker...didn't every teenage boy go as joker?
_
If your dress up box is still out and it is the middle of November...

If you don't crawl away really really fast, your Aunt Alicia will dress you up like a very ugly Orphan Annie.
-
If you want to know how the Richard Mathews family spent their Thanksgiving Day...
If you are sweet Uncle Bill and you own the Guitar Hero World Tour you don't get your picture taken playing instruments on Thanksgiving because you are too nice and you let everybody else play your game.
If you are Branson you think that is a great deal... since you get lots of Uncle Bill loven'.
-
If you think it is too early to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving than you know that the Cazier family feels like anything after Thanksgiving is LATE...

If you wonder what our family does on Thursday nights...
If you're like Branson and can't stay awake during the Survivor Challenges...don't bother coming to visit us on Thursday Nights, we will be too busy watching Tribal Council.
-
If you wondered what amazing story teller was reading Christmas books on the stage at Barnes and Noble...
If you didn't make it you really missed out BIG time...

If Branson is any indication, John was thoroughly entertaining to a sell out crowd...well, uh sell out group...of six...
-
If you are ever curious about the political status of the Cazier family....
If you really truly want to know how we feel than don't ask John or Amy. I think the kids got way more into the election this year than we did. They had a ton of fun back when Hillary was still in the game...
If you really must ask...NO I do not encourage this.
-
If you didn't get invited to Branson's First Birthday Bash, don't feel bad, no on did.
If you think he liked his presents...If you ever read that "What to expect the First Year" they actually tell you to make a healthy Carrot Cake for your baby's first birthday...I don't think so.
-
If your daughter gets a school assignment where she is given a large clothespin and is told to dress it up like one of her ancestors....
If it turns into a scary 1800 French woman....tell your daughter she is beautiful.
If you don't like giving up your Saturday's or weekend evenings...Don't let you boy play AAU Basketball.
If you want to see some good ball handling...come on over to a game with us. Cayden has worked really hard and is now very good.
If you take a toddler to a lot of basketball games...his first word will be "BALL."
-
If you want to hear some pretty Christmas music. Anderson has a Solo in tonight McLoughlin concert.
-
If you want to know anything else...you'll have to wait til another day.

Holy long post, Batman!

I love the tribute to Bill. That picture is priceless. And I'm so glad you got one of Branson and the Ronald McDonald wig on there.

Oh, that picture of him with the Christmas lights? AMAZING!!!

Melissa Mae Johnson said...

That picture of Branson with the lights is AWESOME! (I just noticed Alicia said the same thing!) I love it. And I loved your post.

Shayla said...

What a great way to sum up lots of stuff...I should steal it since you know how often I blog. Loved the pic of Sydni's "ancestor doll". I wondered if anyone else's looked as scary-weird as ours turned out. :-)

SuzanSayz said...

Amy I just love these pictorial posts of yours. Such a perfect way to share your family's comings and goings.
And I guess it is close to unanimous. I LOVED that picture of Branson and the lights. You have GOT to enter that in something. Even if it's just the fair. I would be super shocked if it didn't take first prize!

Em and Ms said...

Whoa, that's quite the update! We can definitely relate to the computer problems. Glad you're back, and with tons of cute pictures!

IF you are wondering...I think this is a really cute post!

By the way... Tonight is the last Survivor before Sunday's two hour finale! Can you believe that? My two favorites are Sugar (she is smarter then she looks!) and Bob~!
Have fun,
Robin~♥

I love your update!! It's about time Girlfriend!!! I've missed you. And will you tell Debsters. How am I suppose to talk with her if I cna't leave a comment on her blog...
You always take such cute pictures. Halloween seems like forever ago now.

Jan said...

That was amazing Amy. Wow. You have had a load of fun. You were all so intense on the guitar hero. Your picture of Branson in the lights was awesome. Frame or card worthy girl. So good to hear from you.

debsters said...

Busy? You're not kidding. Fantastic pics as always. I'm excited to see your pics from the concert last night, I, of course, forgot the camera and didn't document a thing about it. Oh well. Anderson did a fantastic job. I'm in awe of these kids who are so confident. I meant to tell you, the other day when the kids were practicing here they had me come and listen and I got all choked up because they were so cute working together and figuring it out and just being friends. Probably pregnancy hormones, but still it was really cute.

Mikki said...

Cool catch up post. I love it.
Some days I totally wish I could take a sledgehammer to the computer. That must have been FUN!!

Lisa said...

Wow oh wow....that was the longest post ever....but I liked it. I love a post filled with pictures :) Thanks for catching us up to date on the happenings in your family.
