Santa came to our house.....

Well, we all made it through Christmas and now are dealing with the aftermath. The kids both were blessed with way to many things and have enjoyed playing with new toys. Kambryn got her dollhouse that she has been asking for and we have rarely seen her the past few days because she has been so busy playing with it. Santa also blessed Kolten with some pj's that fit him, he is just so long that he needs 12 month things already. Kyle got his Wii and I got the Wii fit, I am already committing to using it and hopefully can loose the baby weight. Here are a few pictures from the holidays.

Gingerbread house and jumperoo....

Well we have had a busy weekend. Kyle and I finally got up the nerve to attempt the gingerbread house with Kambryn. She loved decorating it with all the little candies. The problem that we ran into with her was she was not patient....I know right, big surprise. When I was doing the icing it needed to set for a few minutes but she couldn't wait and began placing her candies all over. So of course they all began to slide down the roof and we had to begin repairs. Oh well, it is the memories that you make during these little projects not the actual project itself. Kolten was great and he just jumped in his jumperoo and laughed at Kambryn being very silly.

Elf on the Shelf.....

Ok, so we got Elf on the Shelf today and it is so cute. For those of you that don't know what this is, let me fill you in. It is a cute little pixie elf that sits on the shelf (or anywhere in your house) and watches and reports back to Santa if you have been naughty or nice. I comes with a cute book that tells the kids all about the elf and what he does. Well, we got out the book and read all about it and then put the elf, Kambryn named ours Charlie, on the TV in our family room. The story encourages kids to tell the elf there secrets or what they want for Christmas but never to touch him because he will loose his magic. Sooooo, after we placed Charlie and went about our business I heard Kambryn telling Kolten, "That is Charlie, he tells Santa we are good, say Hi to Charlie, Kolten" It was so cute, then she said " Kolten wants a truck and a hammer and I want a dollhouse". I am really going to love this new little tradition and I hope that it makes some great memories for the kids also.
