Rockin round the Christmas tree!

Just a few pictures of the boys decorating the Christmas tree!
I need to take a picture of it decorated, but they did a great job,
and as you can see had some silly fun while doing it.
Tuck and I got our annual Gingerbread House done too!
I would suggest making and using your own white icing though.
Every year I say I am going to do this the next year and then I forget.
It turned out really cute though.
Tuck always ends up eating some of the candy!
Only two more days!
Hugs, K

Pretzel Hugs

Friday was Tuck's Christmas party so we had to make our traditional Pretzel Hugs w/M&M's.

They are the perfect salty/sweet mixture.

The kids love them and remember them from year to the next.

He and the other two are officially out of school for 15 days!

Yippee! It's a little break for me too.



Where has the time gone?

This week we attended Keyton's Cross Country Awards Ceremony.
He did a great job for his first season. He received a medal at one of the meets.
He made some good friends and had a wonderful coach, which is saying a lot for school sports!

It seems like just yesterday we were finishing up with baseball and soccer! Now it's Christmas!

There hasn't been a lot of picture opportunities since sports finished up and the weather changed. I have been working a lot and was fortunate to get to go on a weekend retreat with the store. It was a blast and I got to work on my Christmas cards which I am really proud of this year (keep an eye on the mailbox) and a couple of other projects.

We also moved the week after Thanksgiving! That was crazy, but with Brent taking the week off, we got it all done. I am really proud of the boys and how they stepped up and did more than their share of work. I am happy to say that all the boxes are unpacked and we are completely settled in. I do have one room to paint after Christmas, but other than that it already feels more like home than the last house.

Lots more pictures coming up.

Enjoy the season this next week. I know I am this weekend. I finally have a whole weekend off and have a little list of Christmas activities to get done this weekend. I am going to enjoy each and every one of them. So far today, I have made Chex Mix, wrapped all the presents I have so far and helped Tuck decorate a Gingerbread House!
Christmas cookies are on the list for tomorrow!
Hugs, K
