Happy Birthday Brenden!!!

Today Brenden turns 6!!! Time flys- We love you little guy!!! ;)

Our Christmas!!!

Christmas this year was very relaxing; Jays family came down and we all had a ball!!! There were lots of laughs - lots of playing with kids toys- and plenty of Baileys come night time!!! The men even got into a wrestling match with their little cousin Ken; who isn't so little anymore- he probably could have beat them; he was too afraid to though- so funny! You had to have been there. Listening to Auntie Denise sing The Reason by Hoobastank with an Ipod hooked up to her ear was a highlight to the evening as well. Rock on!!! :)

The Boys 1st snow experience

What a beautiful trip to the snow. We went to Big Bear yesterday; this was the boys 1st ever trip to the snow! We had a blast- makes me want to live up there! ;) Went sledding; kept falling in the snow and cracking up! These memories are priceless... Thanks to my wonderful neighbors for letting us tag along with them; I cannot thank you enough! :) Big Hugs to all!

Yay for Christmas Break... continued...

Continuation from my last blog... :)
The look on his face cracks me up...

Merry Christmas to all!!! :)

Yay for Christmas Break!!!!

I picked up Brenden from Kindergarten at 11:45 am today; then Shianne arrived home at 12:45 pm --- We are celebrating!!! Yay no getting up early for 2 weeks! Time to enjoy some much needed valuable time together as a family- therefore we started out by cleaning out our closets (not so fun) getting ready for Christmas. We must have an organized home for Christmas I say; they don't agree--- oh well one day they might! ;)
I feel really weird that we watched our very last preschool performance last night. Our baby performed at his; telling the story of Jesus' birth- and to think in the past he's always sat with us watching; once when he was just 6 months old wathing his big sister, and the next when he was 3 1/2 watching his big brother do the same exact play that this year HE was in! He played a shepard; did not sing along AT ALL and hid behind the kid Santa during most of the show; poor little guy he is probably gonna have to battle shyness like his Momma ;). Wow time flys; preschool is so much fun and soooooo cute- I'm gonna miss this age. :(
I will post pictures in a couple minutes he's adorable!

So I had this crazy idea to put a bow on our Hailey dog and get some pictures- she hated wearing this; she definitely was not a happy dog. It's also raining cats and dogs today so I had to take these indoors; therefore they were changed to black and whites- we'll have to do makeup pictures when we start seeing the sun again- these would be so much cuter outdoors! Not the greatest - but cute...

Our Holiday Spirit filled night...

Last night we joined our lovely neighbors and searched the Christmas tree lots! We always enjoy our time together. I just love the smell of pine and the beautiful sights of Christmas lights glimmering throughout town. It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! I had the pleasure of helping my neighbor (or should I say watching) her decorate her gorgeous tree! Her home decor is so gorgeous; words cannot describe all the touches of Christmas throughout.
This morning my wonderful husband brought me an eggnog latte from Starbucks; which has set the mood to put lights on our tree and get it decorated- I'm trying to talk him into getting some wood to break in our fireplace for the very 1st time and enjoy some hot cocoa! Doesn't that sound cozy? Here are some pictures of our night...

Trying to get the perfect picture with everyone smiling was quite a challenge; Jimmy wanted no part of being in this photo; finally he mustered up a fake smile... :)

Told you Jimmy was not happy... we interrupted his play time.
