Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone! We absolutly love Christmas time. We love the snow, lights, music, movies, and all the fun little activities that go with the season!
Kyler has been very excited to meet santa this year. He made sure to ask where his reindeer were.

First time Kyler has helped me make sugar cookies! He thought it was so much fun stamping out the shapes in the dough.
We also made Gingerbread houses. I think his favorite part was eating all the candy!
Justin made sure it was very structurally sound.

Here is a video of Kyler blowing out his candles. Trick candles are always a lot of fun and almost impossible to blow out!

Happy Birthday Kyler

I can't believe Kyler is three! He has become such a big kid. He was so excited for his birthday, he couldn't wait to open presents, eat cake and play with balloons. He asked me all day long if he could. He had fun trying to blow out his candles, they were the relighting ones- I know I'm so mean!

Trimming the tree

Our tree stands about 11' , luckily we had the height clearance this year. I love having a tall tree. Kyler put all his bulbs in the same location on the tree until we helped him spread them out. We laughed so hard because it didn't matter how many were already on one branch he always went to the same branch to decorate.
The tree is so prickly this year. We could hardly touch it without gloves and long sleeves. That is one way to keep your kids away from it. Kyler has already broken 3 Christmas bulbs, and counting!

I have been so bad about taking pictures this time around. So here I am at 32 1/2 weeks, every day counts.

Cutting down the tree

We had so much fun this year cutting down our tree. We went for a snowmobile ride and enjoyed being out in nature with all the snow covered tree. The views were so beautiful. We finally found our tree up by Brundage Mountain
The snow was a little too deep for Kyler so he rode on Justin's shoulders.
We cut the very top of the tree off because it was so string bean like. It is now Kyler's Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
I had to prove I was out getting a tree too -at 32 weeks along.
The tree measured out to be about 11' long, They always look so much smaller than they really are.
Justin cutting down the tree. I'm glad we went when we did because the next day we got "well over" another foot of snow.

Kyler enjoyed playing with little Lynden over thanksgiving,
or it might have just been all his toys he liked playing with, j/k.
I couldn't get Kylers attention long enough to get them both to smile.

Kyler loves playing with sugar (our neighbor's dog). It's nice because we just play with her, then send her home, and we don't feel like we even need a dog. But we would love to have a dog just like her because she is so good with Kyler.

Let there be snow!

It snowed yesterday, and Kyler could hardly wait to get outside to build a snowman. We actually received about 4 inches then it started to rain and everything became so wet. It is amazing how much kids grow in a year. Kyler's winter clothes from last year were so small on him.

"I like to eat snow!"

Kyler's baby

Jason (Justin's twin brother) has been working over here in McCall every week for a while and Malia has been student teaching and unable to come over with him. So last weekend she came over instead of Jason going home. We had a lot of fun. I always feel so far away from everyone until someone comes to visit.
Kyler and Kaylee played so well together, even though Kyler made her cry a lot just by barely bumping her the wrong way. She is very dramatic, it was so funny! Kyler would say "Shhhh, no cry baby."

I found Kyler fast asleep in my room the day after they left. He had gotten the pillow and blanket by himself and he slept for about three hours. He must have been really tired because he doesn't take naps very much anymore.

Say cheese

It seems like Kyler never has any clothes on, that's because he has learned to take them off and prefers to run around in underwear. I'm always putting his clothes back on lately.-And he is also starting to eat so much better. Now he is really going to start growing. I always thought there is no way he can grow by only eating corn dogs, fruit snacks and chocolate milk!

Kyler has been learning his colors. He does pretty well until he starts getting silly.
He was so careful to get as little paint on him as possible, until I showed him it is alright to get your hands dirty.

Howdy Y'all

Kyler was a Cowboy again for Halloween. I think he really
enjoyed it a lot more this year and actually understood what was going
on. I took him to the trunk or treat at the church, then to a few neighbors
and members in the ward. He said howdy to everyone and
told them he was a cowboy. I thought he was so cute !

Rub a dub-dub!

Kyler loves my bath tub. He has taken more baths in it than in his own tub! -I don't blame him!

Happy Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins was alot of fun this year. Kyler has been calling them "happy pumpkins for at least a month now!

Don't they look like buddies?
I thought if I held the pumpkins by my round belly it wouldn't look so big. I don't know if it worked though! I'm 28 weeks! Only 12 weeks to go!

Kyler walks better in heels than I do!

Last nice days of the year!

We went on a walk yesterday and the weather was just so nice. It made me wonder where this year went!
Kyler found lots of grasshoppers and wanted to step on them all! I don't know where he gets that from!

Best Pals

We went out one evening to sight in Justin's guns. It obviously worked because Justin shot a deer this last weekend. I told him he couldn't shoot one unless it was a "Monster Buck" but he couldn't help himself and shot a 3x3.
Kyler loves hanging out with his dad and doing everything the exact same way.
They Both have their hats on backwards!

Kyler and Tess played in the leaves for at least an hour at my parents house. He thought they were so much fun to throw in the air!

It's a boy NOW!

This last weekend we went back to Idaho falls. Justin went hunting with his dad and brothers, and I visited lots of people and I also had a Dr. appointment, and an ultra-sound. The ultra-sound technician told us it was a boy where as the Dr. at the last appointment told us it was 90% chance girl. We didn't really believe that is was a boy and they spent almost 5 min trying to prove it was a boy from every angle they could find. And sure enough, IT'S A BOY!

I'm so glad I didn't start buying pink and purple clothes! At least we already have alot of boy stuff already. I'm still alittle shocked!

Kyler Loves Trucks!

We went to Colter's baby blessing, Jana and Roscoe's new baby, and also ended up getting a Kunde family picture. It was really hot and Kyler is bright red for all the pictures or he just didn't want to smile probably because he was so tired out from drivng his trucks all over the yard. Its always fun to see family and get out from McCall once in awhile.
