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.
