Train Around the Tree

We put dad's little train around the Christmas tree and the boys had a blast playing with it.

Even the big boy still loves to play trains.

Trains are so fun!

Decorating the Tree

 We decorated the Christmas tree this weekend. It was so fun decorating our new house for the Holiday season.

We collect ornaments on our trips, and this is one of my favorites: the Lion King on Broadway in NYC.

An ornament from this year: Superman for the ride at Six Flags.

Here are the boys in front of the finished tree. We got a new star this year because the other one went out. What a great picture! Love these guys.

Thanksgiving 2012

 We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We had the Derrick's and Gropp's over for the afternoon.

The men fried a turkey in our dirt of a yard (that way they don't burn down the house).

Collin helped.

I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade while cooking some of the meal.

The boys had fun with their cousins. Cole was brushing Emma's hair with a kitchen brush ( a clean one).

 Dinner Preparations:
Kyle made his mother's rolls.

Meme's rolls.

Deviled eggs.

Apple pie.

Reindeer food.

We had lots of yummy food. We watched football and played games. It was a great day!

Cousins come to visit!

This weekend Christi and her family came to visit us on their way to California for Thanksgiving. The kids had so much fun playing with each other. They played outside alot, but then they came in and played Nintendo DS together.

Christi fixing Cassie's hair.

One girl with 5 boys seems tough, but she loved it.

Here is the whole group this morning, right before they left. We would love it if they lived closer. The boys just love playing with cousins.

Ticket to Ride

My boys love this game, so I took the opportunity to take some pictures of them playing "Ticket to ride" this weekend.

Board games are the best!

Photography Class

I know it has been quiet on here since Halloween. We did go trick or treating in our old neighborhood, but I wasn't feeling well so I didn't bring my camera.

I have been taking a photography class @ 
called Shooting 201: Beyond the Basics.

So although I haven't posted anything in 2 weeks, I am still taking pictures. Here are some random pictures around the house for the past couple of weeks.

Cole and Landon goofing off.

Landon posing for me on the sleeping bags.

Kaleb with our cat Sam in his face giving him love.

The snow on the Ute Mountain behind our house.

The same mountain at sunset. I love the lensflare.

 And here are some from the class so far:

Cole full sun.

I have one more week left to go on my class and I am really enjoying it.
I will post more next week.
