New Years Eve 2011

 Someone didn't quite make it.  We piled our coats on the floor and she fell asleep.  Not sure how though because the music was loud, and even when everyone was celebrating she stayed asleep

Don't worry its just sparkling cider.  They ran out of cups!

This year for New Year's Eve we were in Colorado Springs with Jeffs parents.  They had a deal at the bowling alley on the Air Force Base to bowl as many games as you can bowl from 8-12 and you got one meal and all you can drink.  It was so fun!  It's actually one of the best New Years I have had in a while.  Our whole family is really big into bowling so we all enjoyed ourselves and I was actually able to stay awake until midnight because i was busy.  I hope we do this again next year!

Christmas 2011

 This year again we paid10 dollars and went out and chopped our tree down.  It was a really big tree this year, and I loved it!

 Kyle is not quite awake yet

 Yea Jeff got a pad;)
 Brandon really likes trains, so he got this really cool picture from Grandpa Wursten
 Ash needs to practice dentistry early

Can you tell Jeff is surprised!! He got a new grill from his parents.  Which we really needed!

Polar Express 2011

The Polar Express is so fun do to with the kids whole they are little and the Magic is there. This year my Parents were able to come for Christmas and joined us on this adventure.  If you have not had the chance to do this you need to try it out. 

Brandon looks cold

 Tickets Please

I love Brandons face how he is looking up at Santa.  Pricless!!

We have a new addition!

So for Christmas this year (December 2011) we decided to get the kids a new puppy.  Her name is Sophie and she is a mix of mini shnouzer, lab, and griffin.  I met her while i was doing Physical therapy.  A guy there brought his puppies in and I fell in love with her right away.  Jeff was really surprised when I came home and told him he ha to see this dog, because its not something i wanted right now.  We talked about it maybe when the kids were older, but she got my heart.  She is the perfect dog a year later.  She is the best snuggler, loves to sit next to you all the time, never barks(occasionally at a dog or noise), loves to go on runs with us, and is so kind to the kids.  We could not have asked for a better dog.

Each month they pick students to be citizen of the month. They have a little breakfast for everyone and then give them their award! Good job B!

Kyle turnes 3!!

 For Kyles Birthday he wanted a Diego party, so I decided to try making this cake

 Off to the bowling alley

 We invited some friends over to help us celebrate. So we played a little duck, duck goose..
 musical chairs
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!! Sad birthday boy he didn't get the chair he wanted
 Here is the final cake.  This cake took forever!! It took my 4.5 hours to finish and once it got to midnight, I got lazier and just finished the boots really fast.  I'm actually quite proud of this cake.  Kyle liked it too.
 My baby boy!! Can't believe he is 3
