Merry early christmas!

Brandon has decided to celebrate christmas on his own this year. He has added his own decorations to the tree along with the boots, he likes to add his pacifires too. He then decided to open a present under the tree. Luckily it was his own. So thank you Aunt Heather for the fun driver toy.

Santa Clause

So we told the kids we were going to see Santa. Matthew was really excited, and Ashlie said she didn't want to see santa. We waited in line and finally it was our turn. When we got up to him, Matthew would not even look at him. I had to hold him and release his death grip on me, but he managed to tell him what he wanted and even gave him a hug at the end. Jeff had to hold Ashlie and do the same thing. With a little bribery we got them to at least stand in the sleigh for a picture. Merry Christmas!!

playing in the snow

Here are a few pictures of the kids playing in the first snow fall. They had a blast as jeff was pulling them around. Even brandon was laughing pretty good. They sure gave jeff a workout. Ashlie was out there too, but all of my pictures of her were in a video, and I have not quite figured out how to post them yet. I know it's not that hard, but I still don't know.

My stockings

This year I decided to make my own stockings!!! For those of you who don't know me, I have never touched a sewing machine, don't really buy fabric, you get the picture, but all in all I think they turned our pretty cute. I was very proud of them, and the kids got really excited to see their new stockings. We are just waiting for Santa!!

Having a Picnic

The kids wanted to have a picnic for lunch the other day. So they sat in the kitchen on Matthews nemo blanket. It was really cute, because Brandon sat down and joined them.

This week has been a slow week. I have been very tired and sick. I have a nice case of tonselitis, and I just feel wiped out. On Wednesday it was Jeff's sisters Birthday, and to celebrate we went and saw the musical It's a White Christmas. It was very fun lots of dancing. It made me even more excited for Christmas and it was a great way to begin my Holiday. I can't believe Christmas is in a little over 2 weeks. Yikes!! I have not really done any shopping. The weather here has been a little weird this year. We have not had any snow really, a little flakes here and there, and then the next day it will be in the 60's then back down to the 30's like today. All I ask is snow for christmas. Then it can be sunny, sunny.

O' christmas tree, O' christmas tree!!

Last night we got a tree, and today we spent the day decorating it and the house. This is no doubt my favorite time of the year. I love the feeling that christmas brings. It's so fun watching the kids grow year by year and how fun each christmas gets as the kids get older. Matthew and Ashlie really enjoyed doing the tree, and Brandon is learning the word "NO" really quick.

Brandons first Buzz

Well we did it, we buzzed brandons hair. I don't want to hear it from anybody, if you don't like it sorry. We think he is still so cute. It's a little different but he's a cuttie.

Brandon made it to 16 months!!

Brandon is 16 months old today. I can't believe he is that big already. Brandon is such a funny kid right now. He thinks he is the center of attention. I love when he just radomly starts laughing at whatever seems to be amusing him.
