We found a great Santa to go and see this year!  He did a great job with the kids.  Makenna didn't really enjoy seeing but everyone else had a great time.  Santa even brought two of his reindeer with him so we all got to go out and say hello.

Swimming Lessons

Camdin and Colton have been doing swimming lessons again.  They have both been doing amazing.  Camdin is now working on the breath stroke and is doing so good breathing on both sides with his crawl stroke.

Colton passed his crawl stroke and is now starting to work on his breathing.

Count Down to Christmas

I put together a little count down to Christmas calendar for the kids this year.  Everyday (almost) the kids picked a Christmas activity that we got to do that day.  Above is when we made sugar cookies.  Other things we did was made snowflakes, read a Christmas book, watched a Christmas movie, went on a sleigh ride and many others.

These are from the night we made gingerbread house.

We also had hot chocolate by the fire.
We will see if we do this again next year:)

As one of our activities on our count down to Christmas we went sledding.  Snoqualmie had just gotten almost a foot of snow so it was perfect timing.  We all had so much fun!

Daddy was nice enough to give all the kids a ride out to the sledding hill.

Camdin went up and down the hill so many times that day.  He barely stopped at all.

Colton got going super fast.

We all had fun!  Even Makenna enjoyed the time in the snow.  She was bundled up and stayed toasy warm.

We ended our great day with a massive snowball fight.  We love snow!

Decorating the Tree

We had a great evening together decorating our Christmas tree together.  The boys had fun talking about each ordainment and arguing over who gets to put which one up:).

Makenna had fun watching!

Our tree is beautiful.  We are loving this Christmas season!

6 Months

Makenna is 6 months old.  She loves to eat, loves toys, is an amazing sitter, and laughs lots through out the day.  She screams Da Da Da all the time.  She sleeps 6-9 hours at night for her first stretch.  She likes to stay up late with me, she usually goes to sleep at 10pm.  She is getting pretty clingy to her mom and doesn't love to go to strangers.  She is pretty tiny we were late getting her 6 month check up so she was 6 1/2 months old and weighs 13lbs 8oz.  She is in the 4% for weight.

Makenna is such and amazing girl we are so blessed to have her!

Santa Clause Came to Town

Santa came to Milton again this year, unfortunately he no longer goes down our street so we had to go and meet him by Safeway.  It was a brief visit (Santa was running late).  Camdin and Colton did enjoy seeing the school bus and firetrucks go by with Santa.

Piggy Tails

I have been having fun with Makenna's hair.  This was the first day I tried pig tails.  I think they turned out pretty cute:).

I love her smile!

Oh Chirstmas Tree

We went out to a tree farm again this year and found our perfect tree.  It was actually a beautiful day and we all had fun splashing in puddles looking for our tree. 

Makenna loves the front pack.  We both stayed toasty warm.

Camdin and Colton had fun riding on the cart and sipping hot coco.

We found it!  Camdin and Colton took turns helping cut it down.  This year we named our Christmas tree Tommy.

Splashing in puddles and playing in the mud.

After we finished getting our tree we got to ride the train!

They had a cute Santa sleigh that the boys had fun playing on.

We had an amazing Thanksgiving this year.  My cousin and his fiance came over and played with us for the day.  They helped me cook our delicious meal, cleaned up, played games with the kids, and played outside throwing the football and riding bikes.  It was a great day.  It was so nice having family over to spend the day with.

Our delicious meal.  Our turkey's name was Gus.  The boys said he was "Gus the gimpy gobbling turkey."  And boy was he delicious:)

Enjoying a turkey leg.


Makenna had a great day too!

Our thankful tree.  Camdin and Colton did great coming up with different things they were thankful for during the month of November.
