Let it Snow!

We started to get snow late afternoon on Christmas eve and it continued to snow until afternoon on Saturday. This is our backyard. Daniel wanted a white Christmas (and I did too!)

The front yard.

This was taken on our back porch. That is how much we got here!
And I want to send a big thanks to Dan for shoveling snow! And then it snowed some more!

Daniel and his new toy!

Daniel has been busy doing this! I feel like a bad parent because I think this is all he has done since he got his laptop. He does manage to eat, sleep and use the restroom! Does this count as family time with him and Dan on their laptops and me reading together in the living room!?!

Christmas 2009

Daniel's bag of coal! There really wasn't any coal in there, but I told him he would a bag of coal! He thought it was funny!

His favorite gift that he received was his new laptop! It was something he didn't really think he wanted but was VERY excited to get.
He also got lots of DVD's (he watches them on the laptop), a CD, cologne, books and as a family gift we got the Tony Hawk Ride for our Wii (it has been played but I was taking a nap when Dan and Daniel were playing it. I'll get pictures later). So our Christmas was very good. Great gifts, family and good food!

Gingerbread House Take 2

For those of you who have been following our blog since last year may remember how our gingerbread house turned out last year. It was not pretty! A tornado ran through the house year and it did not make it :) So this year I tried again. The house is still standing! I actually bought a pre-bulit kit. All I had to do was put the decorations on it! So much easier than last year! Maybe next years will be even better than this one!

O Christmas Tree

I always get excited to put the Christmas tree up every year. But this year I wanted to make the tree different than I usually do. In the past we would put ornaments that we have gotten over years from people and what we have bought. But this time I went with a theme. My inspiration was a big bow (at the top) that was cream, gold, and silver. It looks really pretty when the lights are out. And it makes me happy!

Daniel in front of the tree. I think he'll enjoy the Christmas season as much as I do!

Little Michael

Rosie came over to use our computer and Daniel & I got to entertain Little Michael. This was him at the table eating a snack!
Snack must have been "finger lickin' good!"


On Saturday we played Jenga. We all had fun trying to figure out who would be the one to make it fall.
I thought this was crazy!
