It's Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!  What a fun Christmas it was too.  Catelyn asked for a Barbie scooter, a princess calendar and princess bike bell and a camera.   She was beyond thrilled when she discovered Santa gave her exactly what she asked for along with some other goodies. Tripp didn't have a request, but Santa was good to him too.  He go a work bench with tools along with some other fun things. 

 The new camera!!

Christmas Eve

 Christmas Eve was spent getting lots of energy out at the park, writing a note to Santa, setting out St. Nick's cookies and reading The Night Before Christmas! It was a good day.

They are so excited!!

Cookies for Santa

We prepared for Christmas Eve by going over to Graham and Sarah's house to decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles. The kids had a great time and did a fabulous job.  Only one more day and they will be ready to put on a plate for Santa!

Baby It's Cold Outside!

The kids wanted to go play outside.  After a few minutes, they came back in wanting hats.  They looked so cute, I had to take the photo op.  Love the silly faced ones. They're such little nuts!!

Already such a fun and jammed packed month.  It's going insanely fast!  We got our tree this past weekend and Catelyn gave us the presents she bought for us at her schools Candy Cane Cottage shop.  She was so excited to give us her gifts, and I was completely touched at how much thought went in to them.  She gave Will an ornament with a basketball ribbon, because she said he "loves basketball!"  She gave me a compact of very pretty eye shadow, and gave Tripp a baseball/ bouncy ball.  Such a sweet girl!  After taking pictures with our new gifts, we decorated the tree.  They did a fantastic job and I do believe this is the prettiest tree we have ever had.  We also had some fun riding rides at the mall and spent a fun afternoon decorating ginger bread houses. So grateful and blessed by my sweet family!

Such a good Daddy, and well done Catelyn- beautiful tree!

 Buddy was trying, but it was nap time and he had had enough!

 Catelyn is so excited as Daddy is about to open her gift.
 He loves it!
