Family Fun

We threw an "I love Daddy Party" to surprise Tyler
after work. Do you love the hats? Allie had fun with
this-the party consisted of us dancing around to loud Christmas music
and eating cereal treats, but the girls were in heaven and Tyler didn't
mind it either. :) He loves his girls.

Since we will be traveling to IF for Christmas, we had to give Allie her presant
a little early since we won't have room for it. It's nice when they are still so young.
This is ALL she wanted, and was thrilled that she got it because now she can make
"breadsticks", "noodles", "tortillas", "pancakes", and "soup".

Christmas Firsts

This was our first Christmas putting lights on our very own house, very exciting. Tyler stapled each light to
point the same direction, he says it was for me, but I know the truth. (The color of our house will be changing next summer
I hope! I thought I should add that) It was also our first year to put up a really, real Christmas tree. I love that pine smell!
Allie pulled it on herself the first day, and hasn't touched it since...lesson learned. Another first is we recently purchased an SUV to
accomodate our growing family, it was my first time ever driving one, and boy do I feel like queen of the road. It's HUGE compared to
my cute little orange hatchback (Which my sister bought). We are going to IF for Christmas this year, and then going to Logan to visit
Tyler's brother and his family. We are looking forward to the break. My 15 year old brother; Jake will be coming back with us at Christmas and finishing out the school year here. I'm grateful to have an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with him. Have a Merry Christmas!
