Christmas tree

We finally got some presents wraped and under the tree. The kids have been so excited wanting to know when they get to open them and what is inside.

Last night Carter was down checking out the tree and both Camden and Nate went down to chat with him about the presents. I couldn't resist taking this picture it was so cute all of them lying there checking everything out.

Santa time

We went to our ward christmas party this year in hopes to see Santa. Luckily we had the inside scoop and new he would be there. Camden has been asking me for about a month now to go and sit on Santa's lap. We all know how crazy it is to get to the mall, so we were happy to eat some breakfast and see Santa.

The kids in line, they were both super good waiting patiently.

Carter was happy to see Santa until he had to sit on his lap. Then he was not liking it. He knew that was the only way to get a candy cane, so he endured for about 5 seconds.
Camden on the other hand was very good and enjoyed chatting with Santa. He has asked for a new blue bike without training wheels. Camden has asked how would Santa get into the garage and us asking Camden why does Santa need to get into the garage. He informed us where else would he put his bike. When we told him he would probably be able to get it by the christmas tree he was so excited to think Santa would leave a bike in the house. ** Maybe he was just surprised that his parents would let Santa leave the bike in the house. LOL So heres hoping the Santa heard Camdens wish and a new blue bike is waiting for him. (Hope you read the blog Santa**LOL)

Christmas Candy

For those of you who know us, we love making christmas candy with Nate's family. I think it's something they have always done. So glad when I become part of the family that I was able to get in on the candy making. I don't have any wonderful picutes of the candy but hey it all looks great and it taste wonderful.
What we did to entertain kids while we tried to do candy.

Pictures of the carmel (pre-cut) and the almond balls.

The process of getting the almond balls done. Sorry no picture of the fudge, peanut brittle, and peanut clusters.

First snow 09

When we got our first snow storm in the beginning of November the kids couldn't wait to go out and play. Even though it was super cold and windy that didn't stop them. They had a blast.
The boys hoping we would get enough snow that they could help dad plow with the four wheeler. Four wheelers make things so much more fun.

The boys holding still for one minute before jumping into the fresh snow.

Carter was not quite sure what to do with the white fluffy stuff. He could hardly move with all his layers on.

And of course first thing Camden had to do was make a snow angel. What a cutie that kid is.

Goodbye November

November came and gone by so quickly I'm not sure what happened. And I know December will do the same. Here are just some pictures of what went on this November.

Carter was being so funny and thought we could hind behind the blinds. He was cracking me up.

On Thanksgiving day at Nate's parents it was nice enough for the kids to be out and still cold enough that their pond was frozen. So the kids went ice skating.

Carter thought he wanted in on the action but Nate did a good job keeping him off the ice.

Another November another b-day. I celebrated my first annual 29th birthday this year. I'm looking forward to all my annual 29th birthdays from now on.

What was at work for me when I got to work on my birthday. Still enjoying all the candy. It's great to work with such great gals. I'm truly going to miss them.
