Christmas Morning

Here we are opening our Christmas gifts on Christmas morning. Avery was so excited about her kitchen. She has not stopped playing with it since. We are just so glad that she really loves everything that Santa and brought her. She had a very Merry Christmas!!!

More Christmas Eve Fun!!!!

Christmas Eve Fun!!!!

For Christmas Eve we went up to Dad & Cheryl's. We had so much fun. We had almost the whole family there. We had Cali & Justin, Chris, Heidi, Tiffany & Sean & all the kids. The only one we were missing was Lydia. She was not feeling well. We hope she gets feeling better soon. We miss & love you very much!!!
We had lots of fun and food!!! After we pigged out on Cheryl's homemade chili(which was so tasty!!!) We headed out to go look at the lights. Which was crazy cause the line to see the lights was so long!! I guess we were not the only ones with that idea. But we made it and got to see all the cool lights. It was so much fun to get to spend time with all the family. It just felt so good to spend time with the people you love at this time of the year.

Come & Play!!!

Avery loves to play. She just can't wait to get up and play each and every day. She will play by herself or with others she is always having so much fun. When she is playing by herself its so funny to hear what she is saying. She loves her tea party set. She has been giving tea and cookies to everyone that comes over. She also makes the best pretend soup you have ever had. She is learning and growing so fast. She is always coming up with new ideas. She is so fun. She keeps me on my toes. Did I forget to tell you she loves to sing and dance. She takes right after Blain and his family. She loves to play the guiater!! When Blain is playing his she will sing and dance. She is so loud exspecailly at church so we have to tell her to tone it down a bit. She will sing you a bedtime song if your tried. Its so cute cause she will whisper it. I know she has so many talents and I love to watch as she share each one of them. I have been so blessed she is the best kid a parent could want. She has her moments but for the most part she is such a good girl. I could not be happier with her.

Christmas Tree Fun

Decorating the Christmas Tree

Avery just could not wait to get the tree out. She kept asking to put up the tree. So we did and boy oh boy was she so excited. She was dancing all around to the Christmas music we had going and eating all the treat and telling us just how she wanted things. It was so much fun. I can't believe how into she was. She saw that we put a gift under the tree for her and carried it around with her the whole time. She was so funny about it. She keeps going up to the red ball that she put on the tree first and saying: "this is mine." She is really attached to this one red ball. All the others she could care less about. But this one is special I guess.

Turkey Time

This year for Thanksgiving we stayed home. Blain had to work like he always dose. But Dad and Cheryl were going up to Montana and Tiffany & Sean were going to Sean family's. And Lydia was going to come up to join us but she was not able too. And Chris of course went to Kaylee's. So it was just the 3 of us. We had a good time and Blain was super proud of his Turkey. We fired our turkey again this year and it tasted great. Ave was mad cause Blain had to go to work. So she at first refused to eat but a little later she gave in and had a little bit. We had a good time but it was kinda different without any family or friends to join us this year.

Thanksgiving Day Parade

We have such a good Thanksgiving. We had lots to be thankful for. We started off our day by watching the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. It was Ave's first year that she actually would sit and watch some of it. She loved the Dora float. She thought it was so cool.
