Christmas 2010

Christmas morning started with one very excited little boy who was the first up that morning. Dylan was up bright and early, saw the presents around the tree and very enthusiastically woke me up from my slumber with a present in his hands. He was eager to get everyone else up too, and so the festivities began....

Jeepin with Daddy

Brian and Stephen took the kiddos out for some play time in the jeeps. It was a nice, warm afternoon down the hill,but when they got up a ways, they found some snow. The kids had a great time having a snow ball fight (with the Jeep, haha) and spending time with Daddy!

Poor Jeep:(

Thought this pic was hilarious!!! Connor did not like Daddy taking pics while he was busy on the pot!!


After an afternoon of fun in the jeeps, Brian and I had a date night while Steve and Heidi took care of the kids. Here are some pics of them making a gingerbread train. What fun!!

Litte Angels

The kiddos were in our chruch's Christmas program. It is tradition for the 2 and 3 year olds to be the angels and sing Away in a Manger. Connor, true to form, would not go up on stage. At first, he said he would go up and sing, he just didnt want to be in costume. But once they got up to the stage, he just wouldnt go up. Brooklyn, Dylan and Hailey did an awsome job and knew the song and motions very well. They werent even too distracted from the audience :)

Decorating the Tree

This year I remembered to take out ONLY the ornaments I wasnt worried about. I handed the kids the box of ornaments, turned around for a few minutes, turned back around and the tree was pretty much decorated (at least the parts they could reach). They just went to town!
