Christmas Time

This year for Christmas we stayed at home, it was really fun! Christmas Eve a family in our ward invited us for dinner, so that was fun. Christmas morning was great, Chase finally understands what is going on. He couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought him! He had a lot of fun playing with all this new "cars" toys, and his favorite was his Handy Manny tool set from Santa.

He carried this thing around all day long.
Kardyn even likes it....that is if Chase will share!
We hope you guys all had a great Christmas, sorry we didn't send out Christmas cards this year, and we didn't have time to put on into email either, oh well! Hopefully next year! Happy New Year!

How many years?

Today is our 7th anniversary! Holy cow where has the time gone! We don't even have any digital copies of our wedding photos, but I did find these! Engagement photos! Anyway, I just wanted to say how grateful I am to have met Tim. He's changed my life and I know I've changed his. We've been through trials together that have made us who we are today. I know I'm a better person with him and I love that he can make me feel like the most important person in the world! I'm so lucky to have him and my children are lucky to have him as a father. I can't wait to see what the next 7 years will bring us! Happy Anniversary Tim, I love you.

Santa Pictures

I'm excited for Christmas this year because Chase is old enough to know what's going on. He's been really excited to see Santa...Crissy and I took the boys to see him one day while we were just walking by in the mall. Ever since then, he's wanted to go back. So we went last weekend, and put Kardyn up there with him. He had fun, but the people there only let us take 2 pictures (who does that!) and we couldn't get Kardyn to look up. Oh well, at least she's in the picture and we'll know she was alive then! Chase asked Santa for "pat" who is a character on a show he likes called Handy Manny.

Randomness of Kardyn

I'm just trying to get some pictures posted before Christmas comes and then I have like a million to post! So here is one of my favorite pics that Lidia took while we were cutting down our Christmas trees.
These pictures were taken with Tim's phone, so they aren't so great, but I still think they are really cute. She's in the tub and she has a washcloth over her belly so she doesn't freeze to death!

The Life of a Sugar Cookie

For whatever reason I have never been much of a sugar cookie person, baking them I mean. Maybe because I've never found "the recipe" or maybe I'm just not good at these! I don't know. However, I decided to be adventurous and try again! I found a recipe in my collection and called Crissy for her frosting, she makes yummy frosting! I also decided that I don't let Chase cook with me enough. For those of you who know my son, it's probably a good thing, however, I thought it might be fun! So, he helped me make the dough and cut the cookies out, which he liked a lot. 

He still made a mess, but that's what little boys do best!

Chase wanted green frosting, so green it became! Mind you it's Sunday night, so we didn't have fun candies to make them all fancy like, but I found some sugar sprinkles in my cupboard, so those did the trick!

So I finally have a few minutes to myself! The first two pictures are just random of Kardyn, actually from a few weeks ago. She's been scooting around pretty well on her back. It's funny because she arches her back and pushes with her feet so she slides on the back of her head, if that makes any sense! Anyway, it's cute! She loves to play with her feet!
This pictures was from the first time we put her in this toy. Chase LOVED this toy when he was little. She can get around in it pretty well now. The seat slides up and down and can turn. 
Last Saturday we went to cut our Christmas tree, it's only $5 for the tag so that's nice! We went up with 2 other families. This is Jack, he said he was trying to put the tree in the truck!

Lidia and Neil, I don't know what it is with the boys, but these two pictures...they must not like to have their pictures taken!
Carrie and her boy Sam and DJ in the background doing who knows what!

So I'll try to be better at posting, I miss being at home with my kids. Working has been tough for me, hopefully there will be an end in sight soon! We'll keep you posted!
