More Stockings

I have finally finished Megan's stocking, just in time for christmas. There were tons of little things that went wrong with this project (ex-the beads melted when I ironed it and the red thread bleed into the snow) but live and learn.
three down, one to go!

Family pictures

While caleb was here to visit it was the obvious time to take family pictures! We waited until the end of his visit to take the pictures and the temperature droped from the 60's to the 20's over night and it was freezing when we took the pictures, but we got a few cute ones anyway.

getting the sillies out.

Dance Party!!

snow day

There was suppose to be a big storm and then nothing happened and then a few days later without warning there was a huge snow storm. The kids were soo excited they just ran around and rolled in the snow, I was too lazy to take them sledding, but I will next time it snows. As usual there are a lot of pictures, it won't hurt my feelings if you don't look at them all.

my wreath with some artistically placed snow.

Caleb's visit

Caleb got to come for a two week visit and it was great!! He spent a lot of time with the kids and I got some free time. And we also got to go off on our own a few times, one of which was to see the new Harry Potter movie! It was a much needed visit and we can't wait until he comes again. After he left I realized I didn't take too many pictures with him in them, but we did take some family pictures that I will post soon. On one of the days we went to the children's museum in Salt Lake and they gave a two for one military discount (finally a plus side for army life). It was a lot less stressful going to the museum with two adults instead of me with two kids.

We also spent quite a bit of time with Calebs brothers and their families. We went to a place called 'jump on it' and it was just a big room with trampolins, what could be better?

Disney on Ice

Disney on Ice was amazing. The girls loved it because they could recognize all of the characters and I liked it because the costumes and the skating was awsome.
There was a photo booth that charged $20 for pictures with the characters, so we just sat the kids infront of a poster for free. Yes, that is a garbage can next to Alyssa.
We went to a 7:30 showing and I was worried that Megan would be a grump for most of the show, but she was very excited. She clapped along and pointed out all the characters that she recognized, her favorites were the little mermaid and tinker bell and of course the pirates from Peter Pan (she loves pirates because she was one for Halloween).
Then she got mad at me for taking too many pictures.
My parents came too!
Mickey and the gang.
Little Mermaid
Lilo and stitch
Here is peter pan chasing his shadow, I thought it was clever.
There was also the lion king that I didn't get a picture of.

Fall fun

I finally remembered to bring my camera to take pictures of the kids in the leaves, and I picked the prefect day because all the leaves were raked into piles and they were cleaning them up.

Alyssa loved throwing the leaves on megan, megan was not as happy about it.

Cutest ghost and pirate ever!!

Pumpkin carving

One of these days I will remember that the pictures download the opposite of what I think they should. Anyway, the pictures start with the end product and go backwards.
I gave Alyssa some markers to decorate her pumpkin and she decided to color the whole thing. It ended up looking like a tribal mask. Megan was too scared to color the face of the pumpkin so she colored the back.
