Christmas Chaos!

Santa left a special gift under the kids Christmas tree this year, I really like that he did that, i think we will ask him to do that every year.

I think Olivia was pretty happy with what Santa got her LOL.

Liv's aparently easy to please LOL

Family picture time

Like father like daughter

Christmas Eve PJ's & Food for Santa

It's tradition for our family that we get to open one gift on Christmas Eve and it's always PJ's.

Rapunzel for Olivia and of course Cars for Carter

The kids are always so proud of setting up the cookies and milk (and one carrot for Rudolph, we put reindeer food with oats and sparkles out in the front yard earlier in the day)

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

This year I decided to put a tree up in the kids playroom, I miss having a tree in the front window of the house and that is the only window at the front besides Liv's bedroom or the bathroom. But the kids got to pick out their own colors of decorations and one special ornament and they decorated it all by themselves, it was a lot of fun to sit back and watch, half the tree was blue and white and the other half was red and white, love it!

Olivia's 5th Birthday

Olivia had two friends over to celebrate her 5th birthday this year, we went down to the fun factory and made and dressed a duck, a giraffe and a unicorn, then we went home and got pampered by Dayton and Danni for the afternoon while we munched on goodies and watched princess movies, it was a great day.

First Day of Kindergarden

Olivia started Kindergarden this year, she loves her teacher's and has made so many friends already. The first couple days were a bit rocky, there were so many new experiences but now she's got lots of stories for us every day about what she's done and who she's met.

Family Pictures 2011

Our friend Michelle took our family pictures this year, she did a fantastic job, we had so much fun and she got some great shots of us, we're so thankful to have such talented friends!!!

First Visit to Calaway Park

As a family we've never been to Calaway, we weren't sure if the kids would be able to get on the rides being so young, but when I won some tickets on the radio we figured we had to check it out. We had SO much fun, Cy and I got to ride a bunch of the rides too and it brought us back to being kids and going to Calaway ourselves.

Waiting for our car

Carter chaufering us thru the park

hahaha, Olivia riding the mini "Ocean Motion"

Riding the bouncy buggies

Riding the train that goes around the back of the park, this was one of carters favorite rides

My drama girl pouting cause she wanted to sit in a different seat LOL

To make liv happy we gave her our camera so she could take some shots of our train ride, she got a couple really good ones, and a bunch that are of grass and clouds and the people in front of us LOL.

Love this self shot that liv took of her and carter.
