Christmas 2009

The magic of Christmas time seems to grow exponentially with our kids. They eat up everything Christmas. We got "The Elf on the Shelf" this year and had so much fun with it. It's a fun little story and elf that you adopt that keeps watch and reports back to Santa each night and shows up in a new spot each morning. The twins thought it was the best thing ever.

We spent Christmas up at the cabin this year and had a great time relaxing, skiing and of course gaming. I love a good Settlers of Catan match! We took the kids sledding and skiing over the weekend and they played every waking minute with their cousins and downed any treat they could get their hands on. It was a great Christmas!

The Bump it

The bump it hair revolution has increased our laughs at Christmas parties all season long this year. For any who use this hair piece seriously, this blog post may not be for you. My circle of friends however, have spent ample time mocking these new hair piece wonders. It has been given as white elephant gifts at every party we've been to and it is hilarious. If this company were really progressive they'd sell it as a set. "But wait, if you order now you get a push-up bra and jersey accent included for only an extra $9.99". They'd make millions.

33rd Anniversary

My parents were married 33 years ago over Thanksgiving weekend. Since everyone was in town, they took the entire crowd out (including kids) to dinner to celebrate. It was a fun evening of food and family. The twins and the rest of the cousins were in awe at the food being made in front of them. It was great to watch them be entertained! Thanks mom and dad for a fun evening.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all my siblings (minus Brock, who's in Chile) at my parents house this year. It was such a fun and crazy weekend with all the cousins....10 kids under age 7. The twins had a blast spending every minute with them and their newest "cousin" Spike(Chance and Katie's new puppy). It was a great weekend filled with lots of food, laughing and late night Settlers games. Thanks to everyone for making it such a fun time. Love you all!

What happened in November

This past month was a whirlwind of activity. This is the re-cap.

Soren's end of season soccer party....They got "trophy" backpacks this year instead of actual trophies. He loved it.

The twins had reading time with principle Poole and got to meet their school Mascot.

London got creative and even more opinionated about her wardrobe.

And most importantly, the New Moon pre-release showing! No crowds, no lines, 10 moms and an empty theater. Thanks Heidi! So fun!
