Christmas was fun this year. Kaleb got a trampoline which he really enjoys. Christmas morning he wouldn't jump on it cause it was wet. We tried but he kept saying its wet and wouln't get on.

All he really wanted for christmas was a ball. So he was really excited when santa brought him a ball. I think that little kids are funny cause they think all the presents they get are from santa.

McKensie really didn't know what was going on. She just wanted to play with the wrapping paper. She had fun and was really excited to see all the presents under the tree. She just kept pointing to them and didn't know quite what to do.

The night before Thanksgiving me & my mom were up until about 11:00 or so cooking pies, home made rolls, banana bread, etc. I love this time of year. I am always up for baking and trying out new receipies. Thanksgiving day was great. We woke up and cooked breakfast for everyone. We made Pumpkin Waffles, with some homemade buttermilk syrup, sausage, bacon, eggs. It was a feast. Of course we had to watch the parade which Kaleb enjoyed. Once everyone left and breakfast was cleaned up I started to get bored. I was just about to start in again and bake something else but my Kaleb wanted to go on a walk. We walked around the neighborhood which was great. The weather was really nice and he loves to be pushed around in the stroller waving at everyone that passes by. The big feast was at my Dad's house this year so we all headed over there around 1:30. We ate around 2:30. There was so much food that we all ate too much. McKensie ate to much we had to unbutton her pants so her belly wouldn't hang over anymore. We would say oh no I am so full and she would smile and raise her hands to touch her head it was really funny.

Here are the young kids sitting on the stairs. We got them to sit still for about a minute. They were a little crazy but that is nothing new.
After we ate and things were cleaned up we all headed over to Heather's to play games and talk about our shopping strategies for Black Friday. I love playing games and hangin out with everyone. The rest of the weekend we shopped and played games.
We hope everyone had just as good as time as we did! Happy Holidays everone!

McKensie's 1st Birthday

Believe it or not McKensie turned 1 on November 18th. Time has gone by so fast. Of course Kaleb thinks that all the presents are his and here he is trying to steal her presents at her party.

We had a cupcake party. Here she is not quite sure what to do with the cake in front of her. Of course she just wanted to touch the burning candle so that is why it is out of arms reach.

Here she is tasting the cupcake and of course she loved it.

She was really excited and of course loves the sweets. We had a great time. Thanks to everyone for the great gifts. McKensie and Kaleb love them all.
