Snow Days

We can't decide on what to do about driving to Utah for Christmas, half of me just wants to get out of this place!
This is Warren on his old trike

Church was canceled, school has been canceled for the past 4 days and so many things are closed. Saturday it was mine and Spencer's 7 year Anniversary and we celebrated by candle light at out kitchen table with the kids watching the snow. Nothing says Happy Anniversary like chicken and biscuit on a Saturday night.

girls, girls, girls

On Friday we had 3 little girls over to play while their Mom's went to run errands. It was so different than having boys over! They decorated a gingerbread house in hearts and ponies, they pretended like they were kittens (quietly I might add), and they had a tea party in 4 different rooms of my house. I think I am going to like this girl thing.

Camus Tree Lighting

Friday the 5th the boys got to go to Grandma and Grandpa Anderson's house for a sleep-over. They made gingerbread houses and got to go to downtown Camus for the tree lighting and arrival of Santa. We only saw Santa briefly while he was riding by in a fire truck. It was so cold too! But the boys had fun.

New Tradition

Can it be considered a "tradition" we do it 2 years in a row? Last year Lilly and Karina came over to our house to make gingerbread cookies, so this year we went to their house to bake. It was a blast, we made sugar and gingerbread cookies, the kids ran off to play while Amy and I discussed very important current events, recent TIME magazine articles and what to give our husbands for Christmas. I am considering it a tradition, because I think we will be doing it again next year.

You gotta love the Pacific Northwest

This year I just went to a Christmas tree lot, how wonderful! It was only 29 bucks, they loaded it up for me and I was in and out of there in 10 minutes. Oh how I love this state!
I finally put up all the Christmas decor I am going to put up this year. I used only silver and left the rest in my garage. Becky Jackson was getting rid of all her silver stuff and she gave it to me, and I love it. Thanks Becky
This is Warren after school in his usual cool man pose, I am just proud of myself for decorating our front door. I love poinsettias.

This is a nativity scene from Mexico (my birth place) that I got when I was in college. My Mom had one just like it when I was growing up, so it is nice to have my own.

This is my nativity scene that I got myself for my 30th birthday, it is simple, but I like it because it has scripture on it. We had Warren memorize Luke 2:11, which is on the stable.

Some of my favorite ornaments that I got this season. You also gotta love Target
