Well the LeChem family slacked off a bit in November with the blog, but we are back strong again here for December!


Maybe the reason why nothing was posted in November is that not much happened. Thanksgiving was great, but we dont have any pictures to prove it. We had lots of family around and it was great to reflect on all the things we have been blessed with this past year.

The great thing we did manage to get a picture of in November was the BYU vs. Utah football game. We got tickets at the last minute from our friends Tawny and Andrew and we were soo excited to go. We bundled Mo up and had a great time watching one of the best BYU games in history! Obviously the highlight was Andrew catching the winning touchdown pass in overtime. We stuck around long enough to get down on the field with him and it was for sure a great thing to be a part of. Hopefully we will be watching Andrew catch touchdown passes in the NFL in 2010!


We had so much fun this Christmas with Mo. Whenever you would ask him what he wanted for Christmas he would say "A Christmas Miracle!" It was hilarious to listen to but we couldnt figure out where he heard it for the longest time. Finally we discovered its from an Elmo movie he would watch at his Gram's house (this kid will repeat just about anything he hears!). Then if you asked him what he wanted from Santa he would say "A choo-choo and tracks". Well Santa came through for him and we loved seeing his reaction that morning when he walked out to his train set. No surprise he has spent several hours pushing the trains along and yelling out "Comin' down the track!"

Here are some of the best pictures from Christmas:

Making some cookies to leave out for Santa.

We decided to also leave some Diet Coke out for Santa this year knowing how much he likes it!!!

Mo sneaking a sip!!

The goods!

Here he comes....

What a happy little Toad!

Later Christmas day we went to Jason's parents house. His mom gave each of her grandkids a different band instrument and they made up their very own "Gram Band" Mo got the piano and loved playing it while singing into the microphone!

Mo's other favorite present was from his cousins Ashlen and LoLo. A cowboy hat and a set of toy cowboys and horses. As soon as he put the hat on he turned and said, "Momma, I a cowboy!" Its been pretty hard to pry that hat off his head since.

The next day all the LeChem's went bowling at BYU. Mo had a great time pushing the ball down the lane even though it took forever to make it to the pins! Overall it was a great holiday weekend!

Love that we caught Mo "mid-air" in this shot. He and is 1 inch vertical!!

October was a busy month for the LeChem's but we had a lot of fun! Here is what we were up to.

BYU Football Games

We started with a trip down to Las Vegas for the UNLV game. It was a lot of fun with the entire Davis family coming down as well. Mo loved to cheer the Cougars on.

Our friend Andrew George in action. If you ask Mo what Andrew's number is he will happily reply "Eight-Eight"

Tolerating some obnoxious (and drunk) UNLV fans sitting right behind us. This was Mo's reaction.

But he was still cool enough to give them a high-five! Such good sportsmanship.

We also got tickets to the TCU game, but as you can tell by Mo's face it was tough to find anything to cheer about in this game.

Hogle Zoo

Mo's cousin Tucker turned 2 this month and celebrated by taking a trip to the zoo. Mo loves animals and really loved seeing them in person and making all the sounds he practices every single day.

Uncle Derek's Football Games

Jason's little brother Derek had another great year of football and Mo loves being right up close to the action during his games.

Mo went as a Missionary this year! After about 15 minutes this is the only picture we could get of Mo in front of our house. What a goof!

Gettin' the goods!
