This year we went to see Santa at the Jubilee of trees. The kids were really excited to see him. (I know you cant tell by the blank look on their faces) But they really did have fun.
This year I put my tree up early. I always wait until the day after Thanksgiving because that is the rule but I went out and bought new ornaments and was too excited to put it up. So here it is... not as cute as it was in my head (which was really cute) but it is up and I do like it. Next year I will have to do more but it is a good start. It looks really cute in the dark with the lights on. Dont all trees?
This last weekend decorated Gingerbread Cookies. We like to do something each year. We have done the train and the house but thought it would be fun for them to get to decorate their own cookies this year. I think we ate more candy then made it on the cookies and the icing was delicious (I ate most of it). Ryan got pretty fancy with his gingerbread
Aidan thinking about licking the knife or putting on his cookie
Preston did a really good job he took forever to decorate this cookie
Ryan decided to start decorating the kids after his cookie was done
About a month ago we got to go down to vegas to the air show. The kids had tons of fun seeing the airplanes even though they were very loud and scared me to death every time they flew over our heads. Avree and Aidan got their faces painted and Preston got to get in the boxing ring with his cousin Jordan, I dont think they ever hit each other because they were laughing so hard. We rode the train around and got to see all the booths. It was really fun and the kids cant wait until next year.
