My Birthday

I turned 28 this year. My oh my!! Time is flying by but I actually am enjoying getting older. Who knew...

Sammy turns 5!!

Sammy turned five and we celebrated with a party of course!! He got lots of Legos, Star Wars characters and a new bike. His birthday was on a Monday but we started celebrating on Friday by taking him to the mall first. He went to Game Stop and picked out a new game to play and it was also his first trip to the candy store. He kept telling us this was the best day ever. It was so sweet!! Then we went to The Rock for lunch and had some pizza.

On Saturday we had Chris' family come up for the day and hang out with us. I made cupcakes for his party and they were soooooo delish!! For his actual birthday we hung out at home and played with all of his new toys are games.

Aren't these kids adorable....

More Snow

It started snowing this week on the way to Cubbies and by the time we got home we had a couple of inches. By the time we woke up the next morning it was all gone :(

Pillow Pets

These boys love their pillow pets!!!

Merry Christmas!!

We had such a nice relaxing Christmas season. Shopping was fun, baking was mostly fun, being with family, watching Christmas movies and and eating!! Let's not forget about the the most important reason...celebrating the birth of Jesus!! I love my family and feel so greatly blessed!!

The top pictures are from Christmas Eve. We let the boys open their stockings and open their new pjs. This years theme was Star Wars. Stockings are such a fun part of the day. I really look forward to finding the perfect little things to put in them. One of the favorites this year were little wind up toys...not sure why but my kids just love them. Chris and I also have some things that we do for each other every year like the chocolate orange. I had never seen them until I met him. Next year I might ask for the raspberry orange. They are so fun!!

Happy Birthday Chris!!

We celebrated most of Chris' birthday at the Great Wolf Lodge but when we got home we had cake!! And then pretty much passed out. We were so tired from swimming and the drive. He was very excited about his birthday present....a portable GPS.
