Gingerbread houses

Years ago when I was working and the kids were at daycare they always did these gingerbread houses. This is something they still like to do each year. One candy for the house one for their mouths. They are so cute and each house has their own personalities showing through.

Andy and Sandy

I love this picture of Andy. This was at my parents the other day after gingerbread making. No matter what shows up in Andy's world he loves his bears the most of all.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas....all the gifts are open won't be long until kids are tired! Some were up at 2 telling me they couldn't sleep! Oh my....
Now our house is filled with new sounds of the new talking toys. Andrew said this was the best Christmas ever! They all seem happy and content. Funny how you work so hard and then it all goes. I love to watch their little faces and think of all this year has brought for each of them.

Enjoy your day...we think of each one of you as we celebrate Jesus's birthday and the greatest feeling in the world of giving.

Happy Holidays to our friends and family,

Wow where has this month gone. It is really fast or I am really slow. Kids are very excited as each day on the advent tree gets open. There are no presents under the tree yet as I am waiting to make sure they stay under there and don't accidently get opened. Lots of cookies have been made so far and many parties have occured. The visit with Santa was funny. Andy was less than impressed that when you ask for a Stinky the Garbage Truck toy and he gives you a bell that it was not worth your time asking. I am pretty sure Mrs Clause did not know how to respond. We are on break now for a total of 19 days. Who's counting well I do love them home but by day 15 or so we will be ready for a schedule again. We had our first snow fall so felt more like Christmas rather than early spring. Kids loved it especially those boys. Girls I have to say spend more time wining our there than playing:) I will try to post more pictures know I have taken a lot!

Tis the Season

Yesterday was the "tree" day with our good friends and families. We got the tree and the kids loved it. Beautiful weather and lots of great choices. Andrew was given the saw by his FATHER not his mother as he played the most recent tree hunter! It is just the start of all that is to come. Those two little ones just love to touch the tree so I am hoping it remains upright! There is much excitment in the house and long lists for us larger people here. We always try to ground them in the real reason of Christmas as we talk about the man in red daily:)

Trip to see Friends

A trip to Denver to see our good friends was so much fun! The funny part is you can take the kids out of the country but not the country out of the kids. You can see they do not live by a lot of people and busy streets mean nothing to them. It was funny to watch. Highlights of them outside of the best of seeing their friends was the free bus on 16th street mall. They loved this and have talked about it a lot. We all got to catch up and enjoy each other!
