Lego and Barn Wonderland
WOW. What a Christmas to remember. The (2nd) blizzard of 2009. Since Chris had to work today, we let the kiddos open their gifts last night and Santa came this morning. Danny spent the afternoon in his room sorting and putting (some) his Star Wars lego kit together, while Riles played with her barn and webkins. Here are some pictures of their fun.

Happy Holidays!

Our Virtual Holiday Card...:)
The kiddos went out and played in the snow today. While we were out there, Tucker and Sparta decided to come home for a visit (they have moved themselves in with Gma Pat and Papa Blackie). I loved this picture of the kids. Tucker is such a gentle dog. I am not an animal person AT ALL, but this dog and I are friends. When Riles was younger (4ish) and would walk to Gma's, Tucker (Shiloh, Gma's dog, would do the same thing) would walk along side her in the road (riles walks up the grass). If Riles would get to close to the road, Tucker would bark and nudge her back to "safety." Now, our road is a private dead end lane, hardly any cars go up and down it, and Gma Pat would stand at the end of her driveway and I would stand in our yard..both of us watching her make her way.
Here are some pictures of our snow day number three.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree....
how happy you make me. We went and cut down our own tree this year at Horse Creek Tree Farm. What a fun experience. The kiddos absolutely loved it, and we will definitely make this our yearly tradition.Once we were done, we headed inside to have hot cocoa and warm up. Here are some pictures of the process and decorating it. Have a very Merry Christmas and holiday season from our family to yours. Peace on Earth.
Chris, Wendy, Danno and Riles.
Riles posed her stuffed animals..:)
