The kids were so excited once they saw it was snowing!  We were hoping it would stick and there would be enough to make a snowman.  We had no idea we would get so much snow for so many days!!

The wind was pretty harsh during the day, but the kids still wanted to go out and play in it!  

Right before bed Todd decided that we should get all the kids dressed in their snow gear and go out and play!  It was so fun!  There was no wind and the kids loved getting pulled in the sled!!

Happy Birthday to our 5 year olds!!

Canon and Kyrie turned 5 years old!  They better get use to celebrating their birthday's together (since they are only 10 days apart), because it's going to happen a lot in their lives!!

We skyped Lola and Grandpa who were suppose to be up this weekend but they both got sick and had to stay home.

We also had our sibling gift exchange and those who weren't in Waldport for Christmas got to open their presents from Lola and Grandpa!

Merry Christmas!

We had a great time at Lola and Grandpa's for Christmas this year!!  Yummy food as always, presents and some beach time!

Opening presents!

More present opening!

Fun at the beach!  It was a bit cold, but there was no wind and it wasn't raining, which is VERY rare for the Oregon coast in December!!  We picked some mussels, saw some crabs, dug holes, rolled a log around and just enjoyed the fresh air!!

Early Christmas

The boys got an early Christmas with Mema and Deda since we will be down in Waldport on Christmas!  They were excited about their presents but did favor the new Lego Ninjago set the most!!

 Later that night when we went in to check on the boys after they were asleep, we found Everson his the beanie Mema knitted for him and with his frog, Douglas, tucked into his shirt!  Silly boy!

Here comes Santa Claus

We had a special visitor come to our house this evening!  The boys were happy to see Santa (and Mrs. Claus who isn't pictured) and get some candy canes!!

We were on the ball this year getting our Christmas decorations up!!  The boys love decorating the tree (even though you can't tell from their fake smiles)!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was mine and Carin's first year cooking turkey's and I have to say they both turned out pretty good.  Mine was a little dry, but nothing a little gravy couldn't fix!!  We had a great low key Thanksgiving day!

Carin & Amanda making the gravy!

The men carving the bird!

Kids happy to be eating!

Brooklyn as happy as can be!

Trying to smile while drinking juice!
