He still makes me laugh!

I walked into the livingroom and found my husband
reading Kennys 3-D Shark book
I was laughing so hard I almost pee'd my pants!
He still makes me laugh after all this time!!!

All is calm ... All is bright ...

Well Taylor is back from Utah and she has opened all of her gifts it was hard to say which was her favorite gift of all, but for sure she loved her new Ugg boots, They were at the top of her Christmas list, and she also asked for all of the Twlight books, All of which she got!

She had a wonderful time in Utah but was sad that she missed Uncle Pete, Aunt Melissa and her cousins Olivia and Zach. She did however bring with her all of the snow that we had here. The night before she came home they received almost 2 feet of snow on christmas day, also closing the airport there. Luckily, she made it home safely and ontime!

Merry Christmas!

Santa was very good to us again this year
All Cody wanted was an ipod - and was so excited to get it

and All Kenny asked Santa for this year was the Nerf wii game and
needless to say Santa came through again and the smile on Kennys face tells it all
Well the day is slowly comming to an end, and I'm sad to say Christmas is almost over.

As every year, we have again been blessed with family, good (wonderful) food, and gifts that were beyond spectacular! Today I was offically kicked out of the kitchen, Ken and my father-in-law planned a menu, did all the shopping, and cooked a wonderful dinner. We had prime rib, twice baked potatoes, green bean casarole, hawaiian sweet rolls, fresh fruit salad, and cranberry rice pilaf. and I have to say --- W*O*W --- They did an amazing job and I'm still full!

We watched movies, played games and had a nice family night together. Taylor is in Utah and we missed her more than we can say, but, we hope she will make it home Friday mid-day (provided the snow in Utah stops soon) Their airport has been closed thanks to the 2+ feet of snow today.

I hope the day was as good to you and your family as it was to ours - God bless each of you and remember to take the time to enjoy the little things!

There are so many pictures of my husband that I have never seen before. WOW and anyone who has ever seen pictures of my husband when he was little, They are spitting images of my son today ...

Merry Christmas to all of you may all your wishes come true!

More handmade gifts (that I can show)

These are the adorable no sew fleece blankets I made for my Neice Olivia and my nephew Zach in Utah - I am trying to make most of my gifts this year. I noticed when I was shopping, there is so many good deals everywhere, but there wasn't really anything that WOW'ed me, So I bought everyone something they would use and want, and then I made them something special that they can remember us by.

SNOW + SNOW + SNOW = idiots!!!

It will never cease to amaze me, how when it snows in Washington, even just a little, or like yesterday ALOT, how people here think its just like the rain. This is the Borgen hill going up to Traget and Albertsons by my house. We are taking this picture from the Road CLOSED sign, all of these people in 2 wheel drive cars thought they could make it up a hill with 2-3" on COMPACT ice, covered with a good 8" of snow -- HELLO people, you made me laugh!!!

Handmade Christmas ♥ from the heart

A friend of mine made these beautiful handmade gifts for her dear friends, and then another friend scraplifted the idea, and then I scraplifted from her (thanks Val & Steffa) With money being tight this year, A simple gift from the heart can almost mean more, and hen I saw this I just knew I had to make this for them, I just hope it makes it to Utah in one piece! Wish me luck!

Stay Warm -- its 27 at my house and snow is on the way - another 2 hr late start yuk!
