Finding the perfect Christmas tree and decorating

The day after Thanksgiving we went out to Greenbluff to find our Christmas tree. It was snowy and cold but we had so much fun hunting for our tree. We walked around for what seemed like forever but we finally found it! The next day we decorated it. Connor was totally into putting the ornaments on but it took Ryan a while to decide he wanted to help. They did a great job and it turned out cute. It is now really feeling like Christmas. I have music playing and all the lights turned on. It really helps that there is a ton of snow outside to really set the mood.

Don't take my picture mom!

Finally got Ryan to help out!

I had to do a lot of pleading to get Ryan to pose for this picture.

As you can see we had a lot of fun. For some reason Ryan has been a little turkey about having his picture taken. I did a lot of pleading to get him to pose for some of these pics.

Thanksgiving 2010

We had a very nice day today. We went over to Denise's in-laws and had dinner and some great company. All the kids bundled up and went sledding. There is a ton of snow and it has been snowing all day and doesn't look to be stopping any time soon. The kids had so much fun sledding and playing in the snow. After sledding they came in and we ate some very yummy food. After we had all had our fill the kiddos went and played the wii. It was a very nice day with lots of laughs and good memories.

While I was outside watching the kiddos sled I decided to take some shots of the beautiful surroundings . The trees where heavy with snow and there was a tree that had some red berries and snow and they were all so beautiful. I just had to stop and enjoy it all.

Tomorrow we are going to go get our Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas. I am looking forward to the Holidays this year.

We had a really fun Halloween. The weather was mild so we didn't freeze when we went trick-or-treating. For dinner I made mummy dogs. They were fun to make and fun to eat. The boys decided they wanted to dress up as superman and iron man. They looked cute. Here are some pics from our night.

This Saturday was Connor's last soccer game for the Fall. He will play again in the Spring with the same team. He has had a lot of fun and improved so much. He really likes playing. He says his favorite position is defense (it is probably because he doesn't have to run all over the field!). Denise and her family came out to watch him play.
