Snow Day

It looks like we’re going to have another white Christmas. This will be our 11th Christmas up here and our 8th white Christmas. I’m only a big fan of snow until about mid February and then I’m DONE. Beckett had a great time watching the snow fall this weekend

He probably doesn’t remember this from last year so it was all new to him.

Sunday morning I took Lucy and Beckett out to play in the snow

After about 20 minutes I asked him if he was ready to go in the house (he had wet mittens and hat) he reached his hands up for me to pick him up. ha! This is the first time EVER he didn’t throw a temper tantrum when it was time to go in the house. I guess he’s going to be more of a summer guy. Fine by me!

Christmas Weekend

It’s here!! Christmas time!!!! We had such a fun and busy Christmasy weekend with the kids. We started off by taking Lucy and Beckett to the town tree lighting on Friday night. The look on Beckett’s face when Santa Claus came in on the fire truck was priceless.

We’ve been talking all things Christmas including Santa Claus so it’s been pretty exciting to see his reaction.

Saturday morning we took the two of them to Lucy’s school for breakfast with Santa

He did a lot better than he did last year

Oh man, someone needs to stop this baby from growing up so quick! Both of them!! Look at how little sweet Lu was!

Saturday afternoon the seven of us went to our favorite Christmas tree farm to cut down our tree

Sunday morning I took off to do a little Christmas shopping with Megan. We did a little decorating when we got home

On Sunday night we decorated the tree while listening to Christmas music

While shopping on Sunday morning I bought this new tree topper. It was 4 years ago on Sunday that I found out I was pregnant with the baby I never got to meet so I thought that the angel would be absolutely perfect.

Only 20 days to go!!!

 

 

 

Little Elves

Our little Christmas elves are back! When the girls were little our elves would bring them little treats throughout the month of December. They had little stockings that hung on their dresser drawers. They would get things like Christmas stickers, pencils, Hershey kisses, candy canes, etc…… as they got older they got things like lipgloss, nail polish, headbands, etc…. I’m not sure WHY this tradition was started and I’m pretty sure it’s too late to tell our elves to lay off the treats. Ha! But we’re down to two Little’s getting daily treats from our favorite elves so we’re gonna enjoy this a bit longer.

Beckett did NOT know what to make of the elves this morning. He was a little nervous at first but he’s starting to warm up to the elf idea. He walks by, points and blows them kisses. Sooooo cute!!

Oh what fun!! Is there anything better than little kids at Christmas time?

Happy December!

Oh Christmas Tree

We woke up to a blanket of snow this morning. It was a perfect day to get our tree!!! So we hopped in the truck and drove out to our favorite tree farm. I finally got our Christmas card photo taken this morning too! The setting was perfect for taking pictures today. ImageImageImageImage

Lucy threw a snowball that hit Jon in the ear when it was our turn to pose

I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t stop laughing! Image

Right about at this moment I thought my heart was going to burst! Jon and the girls came riding up the hill with our tree. Image

The tree is far from perfect. In fact, when we put it in the stand we had a good laugh at how short it was. I don’t think it’s even 6 feet tall. We’re used to these big monster trees that reach the ceiling. It’s cute though and we can’t wait to decorate it tonight!! It’s starting to feel like Christmas!!!
