Christmas day! So much excitement! So much to be thankful for!! Happy Birthday Jesus!

All girl!

Nothing really needs to be said about these pictures they are just adorable!! She loves having her nails done and hair blowdryed before bed! She is ALL girl!

I found this awesome idea on pinterest about making a suprise attack on daddy with a fun note and fully loaded nerf gun! Of course I couldn't pass up on an opportnity to attack my hubby with foam bullets, so this idea hit the spot... Mike was at the computer checking work email when I quietly dropped a note with a full gun on his work space and ran to find a hiding spot... The boys had a great time and enjoyed a fun night in with daddy!.... Enjoy!!

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!"

What a whirlwind December has been! We have been busy doing normal December things, trying to stay warm in the 35 degree weather, making yummy treats, learning about our Savior and His miraculous birth. I love this time of year, when the music in stores are joyful and staying snuggled in bed under the covers is acceptable. Enjoy the pictures!

Our nativity that Kayden and Michael made. Our amazing friends, the Adams' over at inspired us to create.

The 3 wise men, bringing their gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Joseph, apparently in the boys eyes, he was a biker dude with flames on his shirt.

And Mary was an aerobics teacher...

Baby Jesus.. Michael thought it was funny that Jesus was just a lego head with no body. Sweet Michael!

Lily being pampered by her daddy. We hate sending her to bed with wet hair, so daddy blow dryed it for her.. She is spoiled!

The mess in the kitchen while making 13 dozen Christmas cookies, 6 dozen chocolate dipped marshmallows, and 10 dozen dipped pretzel rods. MMMM!

Kayden busy being an artist.

He loved decorating, aka eating while he decorated.

Sugar cookies

Gingerbread cookies

The biggest helper in the kitchen. He wanted to be apart of everything that was going on in the kitchen from dipping pretzels in chocolate to sprinkling the marshmallows.. He was a real treat to have as a partner...

Lily's angel that she made from MOPS.

Michael's angel.

Kayden's angel.
