Meghans Baptism Canvas

Cynthia made Meghan a poster for her baptism. It turned out sooo cute. I glued it to a cavas and decorated it. I love it! Thanks Cynthia!

Cute Things Kids Say!

A conversation between Laton, Meghan and myself.
Meghan: When I talk to you on the phone do you think I sound like a boy or girl?
Me: A girl, of course!
Laton: When you talk to me on the phone do you think I sound like a boy or girl?
Me: Well, kind of in between- right now your voice is kind of high, but when you go through puberty your voice will get deeper.
Laton: Well, has Logan gone through puberty?
Me: He is going through it right now-
Laton: Well that isn't fair- How old do you have to be to go through puberty?
Me: Usually 12-16 years old
Meghan: Well, Laton you have a while to finish it.
Laton: What is puberty? Some kind of class you take? Mom, sign me up! Is Logan passing? I haven't even heard him talk about his grade!
Me: hahahah! Laton, I will talk to you about this later, when we are alone.
Laton: Great, it is probably a hard class, that you are going to talk to me about how much I need to study to pass. :)

Our Visit with TJ, Sunny and Kalin

We had a great visit with my brother and his family. We enjoyed many fun activities. We, of course, went to Scheels. TJ took a try at shooting the newest, fastest and of course the best Matthews Bow out and hit the target on his first try. He has now decided he needs to become an avid hunter! I have to admit I was impressed! We spent half the day playing around at Scheels and also had a delicious lunch there as well. TJ took Logan and Laton to the river 2 days in row, one day they fished and the next the duck hunted. They came home with 2 ducks. I was suprised as they haven't had any luck at the river before. Jaidyn and Kalin made friends quickly. They enjoyed bathtime together and played lots of silly games. As soon as the cameras came out though they dispersed and the moment was over. They cracked each other up often though. We are so glad they were able to come visit and miss them all ready!

Making Music

Holiday Baking!

One of my favorite parts of the Holiday is baking. I love to bake. Especially when it is cold outside. And Baby, it is COLD outside. This year I the traditional peanut butter balls, hand dipped carmels and of course toffee. Another item I added to the list this year were Oreo balls. They are a huge hit and sooo easy to make. If only I wouldn't have eaten all the many goodies I baked, not to mention all the goodies we received!!!

Melting Snowmen~

Church was cancelled two weeks ago due to the snow, I had all ready prepared these melting snowmen cookies for my class, so Sunday afternoon we drove around and delivered the cookies to the Sunbeams. Boy I am going to miss these kiddos next year :(

Snow Fun!

Jaidyn always seems to be able to talk Laton into taking her outside to touch the snow. She walks around telling him "out" and points to the door and pretty soon he is finding her snow clothes and taking her outside.

Wicked Clean Windows

Our little friend that died flying into Logans bedroom window! This isn't the first bird that died at his window.

New Family Canvas

I made this custom canvas from our family pictures we recently had taken. It came in the mail today and I love, love, love it! If you have pictures you want on a canvas, let me know and I will help you design one. It is totally custom, no two are alike! They have different sizes, mine is 20x24. It looks great on my wall. You can click on full size to see it bigger.

Snow Day!

Logan and Laton wanted to go sledding with their friends so I had them build a snowman with Meghan before they went. It ended up looking like an igloo.
Icicles on the window
Sam pointing to the igloo
Jaidyn doesn't have any snow clothes so we made due and put on Meghans old snow pants and rolled them up. She loved the snow.
This is what we woke up to Monday morning. Lots and lots of snow. The kids got 2 snow days out of this storm.
My handsome hubby clearing off the driveway. At first he was doing it by hand, and our kind neighbor came over and offered his machine.

Early Morning Text!

This morning I got a text around 5:30-6:00. I heard my phone beeping and figured it was a text from someone on the east coast. I listened to it beep for about 1- 1 1/2 hours before my curiosity got the best of me. It wasn't a text from the east coast but from my sis-in-law informing me that their 5 week old baby Addie had slept through the night! I was sooo excited for her as I know how hard it is to be up all night! You go Addie- keep sleeping! Isn't she a cutie? I have to show her off :)
