Cookies & Balloons

Christmas time has always been my most favorite time of the year.
I sooo love Christmas music,(the kids are getting tired of it).
I sooo love Christmas decorations,(the kids just want their presents).
I sooo love baking all holiday season long,(they still like this part).
These are photos of some of the baking. Sugar cookies and Gingerbread men.
Still working on eating these. I thought I would 4x the recipe, you know, I wanted plenty,
100 cookies later, who knew???
Kevin made a balloon kite for Keegan yesterday. It was so cute to see him play with it.
He let go of the first set so they made another. It was so cold though, they weren't outside for long.
The last couple of weeks we have been going to town after dinner every night to see Christmas lights. They really love that. It's going to be hard to explain to the little ones where the lights have gone after Christmas is over. :(
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, everyone is so excited.
We hope everyone is enjoying their holidays too.

Mrs.Claus finally made it out front. It's been so cold here that Mike couldn't finish her. The paint wouldn't dry outside. She is so cute. I think he's done painting for the year, it's just too cold.
He's already planning lots more for next year. I love these. They so remind Mike and I of our childhood. You can enjoy them more when they are handmade. Good job Mike.

Mike's Birthday

Yesterday was Mike's birthday. He had a great time. He was sad when Kayna won
Pin The Tail On The Donkey.
He spent today at the golf course. It was raining most of the time, but he and the guys played anyway.
Happy Birthday Mikey
I love you.

Weather Update!!

Well the snow is still here. It was so beautiful on Monday. The schools and all the businesses were closed. It was 17 degrees.These are some photos I took last night. Yesterday we woke up to 23 degrees. Today the snow is just starting to melt. Oh, the pictures of Kayna and Keegan were from last night. I thought they were too cute. Kayna kept "surprising" everyone hopping out of the box.

Christmas 2009

Mike has been busy creating our new holiday yard decorations. He asked if I would like something in the yard for our family Christmas photo this year and I thought that would be nice. I had no idea he was going to make all the decorations he did. He's not done yet. I'll keep ya posted.....I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.


I didn't post this photo last time with the others, I forgot to get it off Kate's computer.

Ms. Rossi and I had our last school visit today before Christmas break. She helps with all our

Kylene's before photo.

Our dear friend Heather cutting it.
