December

 

We’ve been busy bees around here this month.  We even went to Silver Dollar City with our cousin Dean and Grammy and Papa.  The problem is that all of these fun activities are pretty hands on and leave little time for photo ops. So you’ll just have to trust me that we’ve had lots of fun baking and crafts and I’ll try to get better about capturing the moments.

We did snap a few shots of the gingerbread house though.

And we made some funny faces.

The tricky part is that the firstborn has very high standards for what he wants his creation to look like but he is restricted by 5-year-old abilities.  And he insists on doing EVERYTHING BY HIMSELF.  So there were some frustrations before it was all said and done but it was a good lesson in asking for help and being satisfied with less than perfection.  And the finished product looks pretty great if I do say so myself!

Molly is pretty happy with eating the candy as fast she she can chew and making faces for the camera.  Thank goodness for that!

Our biggest tree is just now losing its leaves.  This is the first time we’ve ever had trees so playing in the leaves is a new adventure for us.   What are the chances that I’ll get them to rake them up now?

Oh Christmas Tree

 

Our artificial tree has seen its best days so we decided to change it  up this year and chop down our own tree at the tree farm.  Saturday morning was beautiful so we loaded up and hunted down the perfect tree.

Here’s the crew with our tree before they got to work.

And you have to pose with the saw of course!

And then while the other three were working on the tree, I spent a few minutes chasing this gal around so we wouldn’t lose her amongst the evergreens.

Lots of room to roam and no one to tell me no?  I’m in heaven!

We did stop back by the tree to see how things were going.  And we got there just in time to hear, “Tiiiiimmmmbbeerr!!”

And then it was time to drag it to the hay ride and take it home.

I was a proud momma marching behind this group.

Not too bad for a group shot when there’s so much to explore.

Little sis climbed on and off this bench one hundred times.  And big sister declared that, “It’s almost Chwistmas time!”  at least one hundred times.

Such fun memories made yesterday.  And now I wish I could carry around a little recorder to remember all of the sweet things they say for the next month.  We’ve already laughed our heads off and it’s not even December 1st yet.  Lots of adventures ahead…stay tuned!

Thanksgiving 2014

 

We celebrated with two delicious dinners this year.  And we even hosted the Burns family!  It was our first time to host and our first time to roast a turkey.  We had so much fun with every one on both sides and look forward to Christmas!

Our little pumpkin is one!  And we had the whole family over to celebrate!  It was such a fun day with our wild girl!  Enjoy the photos!

Dean wasn’t sure what to think about all the chaos.
