Snow and Christmas program

We were so excited when we heard that we were getting a snow storm, We had plans to go to D.C. this past weekend to see the lights at the temple and spend some time with TJ's uncle. But his uncle wasn't going to be home and when we heard about how much snow they were suppose to get we decided to stay home and spend the weekend letting the kids play. Plus Tanner ended up running a low grade fever Friday night and most of Saturday so I'm glad we stayed home. We got a total of about 6-8 inches which is much less then D.C. which I heard had about 2 feet so ya we made the right choice in staying put.

The kids in their snowsuits!!
The first thing Makena did was went and made a snow angel. She really wanted me to make one with her but I knew it would be hard getting up out of the snow being almost 9 months pregnant.

Tanner wasn't quite sure about it but once he got out there he LOVED it!!

TJ shoveling our driveway and the neighbors since it was his shovel he was using.

This morning was Makena's Christmas program at school, she had so much fun singing and was so cute as she danced with the music. She kept telling me how she was going to have such stage fright, and how nervous she was going to be. I knew it was mostly at act because she showed no sign of either as she was singing. The lighting was crap and most of the pictures didn't turn out at all and were grainy. But at least there were a few that were ok.

Waiting to start.

After she saw where we were sitting she was trying to say something to us but I have no idea what LOL.

I love you to baby girl!!
Just a little bit of her dancing while shaking the maraca and singing about a snowsuit! (don't forget to turn off the mucic at the bottom so you can hear them singing So cute!!!)

Christmas Decorating!!

We had fun decorating our tree and front room this year. The kids had a blast and the kids have the lights on tree on all day because they enjoy it so much. They have rearranged the ornaments a few times and the 24 candy canes that were put on have dwindled down as we keep eating them LOL. Even though we are not spending Christmas at our place we can't wait till we head to grandma and grandpa's house we have enjoyed our decorations and the happiness it brings.

Our tree
The stockings and wall hanging that great grandma made for us one year.

The advent calender that Grandma made, Its counting down to the day we leave for Grandma and Grandpa's house. Only 7 more days!!!

We had a great Thanksgiving, we spend almost a week at the in laws house and had a great time. The kids loved every minuet of the time we spend their. We went to the movies, shopping, and had a great feast on Thanksgiving day.

Makena and Grandpa playing a game.
This is pretty much where you could find these 2 almost the whole time.

Grandpa still helping Makena with a game

And this is where you could find Tanner, helping grandma cook. Today consisted of making rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner. Tanner was having so much fun helping grab the dough to form the balls. He thought he was in heaven.
