Christmas! YaY!. We have been enjoying all of the decorating, and other Christmas festivities. We got an awesome, large tree for a great price..........so that helps get us in the spirit. Kylie, Carson, and Alexis loved helping decorate the tree. Kyle puts the lights on for us, and he does a great job.......he puts lots and lots of lights. I had bought a lot of decorations for it at the after Christmas sale last year, so I was anxious to see them.
There was a lot of funny conversation in regards to the decorations with the kids, especially with the ornament hooks. We were at the store, when Carson shouted out that we need to find the "hookers". I said "WHAT", and then I realized what he was talking about. I was glad he reminded me, although the people around us probably thought we were crazy.ha.ha. Then we got home and he would say " I need a hooker over here" Then he would call them by the various colors. I tried to correct him and tell them they are called "hooks", and they would both say "no mom, they are called hookers". Anyway, it was funny.
We also had a good snow storm that day. It was beautiful. Kyle had the day off work, and spent the entire morning helping the neighbors shovel their walks and driveways. What a great guy! The kids were happy to help him too.
This last weekend was so fun! The town where my parents live, had a Christmas celebration. We went to this ranch, where they were having a children's fair. They had animals for the kids to pet, and even sit on. Lexi loved the horses.These goats were so sweet
We were all having a great time.......especially me.......the animal lover. =0)
I love this one. Carson is whispering in his ear, that he wants a choo choo train.
After their visit, they got to pick out a stuffed animal from under the tree.
And then we got to go on a little ride in the arena. You can tell that they were having a wonderful time.
Lex and I were pulled by This little cutie. He would either go really slow, or pretty fast. He was having a rough day!We then went to see a free movie that was playing in town. Carson's favorite movie " The Polar Express". It was really fun. The movie theater is vintage, and very neat. After the movie, the kids each received a beautiful bell from the owner.
The next day, there was a special musical program at church. Kyle and our church's choir sang in it. We invited our neighbor to join us. They all looked so cute in their Christmas outfits.
