So Monday I got up and had the terrific idea of making Cinnamon Ornaments with the kids. They LOVED it!
Unfortunately this is about as far as we got...once it was mixed and we were starting to roll it out, I realized we had a chimney fire and we all had to leave. It dried out in its ball form. I promised the girls we would attempt this again! LOL The pictures were still cute though and I thought I would share!

I am finally getting around to those pictures...I'm bad I know! I have been busy...(can I use that as an excuse again even though I used it last time?) The girls can't wait for it to snow again, because their snowman fell apart. ;( Anyhow here ya go!
Chloe officially could not see. I'm not sure what she was trying to accomplish but she kept rubbing her face in the snow and rolling all over and ended up like that!
Its the first snowman Marissa has seen in real life so she was pretty ecstatic when all three pieces were together.
The girls built their very first snowman today and had a blast doing it! I gave you a little preview...more pictures to follow!

We got invited over to my friend Aubrey's house to make some Christmas goodies with the kids. She was having her next door neighbor over who also stays home with her kids also. We had a blast! Good thing we are all kind of go with the flow because we had 10 kids, yes I just said 10, a ton of chocolate, sprinkles, candy, and a mess! LOL Here are some pictures...

Last week we went to Utica to pick up my glasses and finished up some last minute little things for Christmas. Doug's mom thought it would be fun to get the kids ornaments that they could make for the tree. We went to Michaels and found these. I thought they were really cute and the kids were all pumped about making them and hanging them. However...Doug and I ended up putting them together while the kids watch as they were near impossible to do with the kids. Everything needed to be hot glued and most of the pieces were really little so the kids were burning their fingers. They still turned out cute and the kids loved them. Oh well...here are some pictures from that night!
Every year we take pictures for our Christmas cards. This year Doug and I opted out of being in the picture. The kids are so much cuter ;) I know alot of you if not all of you got cards, but I thought I would share them on here anyhow so you can see the larger picture.

Finally we got around to taking pictures of the house being all festive. I still need to get pictures of the outside of the house at night. Its so cold though! LOL
Today was pretty much an all day family day. Started out this morning going to the heifer barn together as a family. Then we had church, dinner and then a second service. When we got home, Doug decided we should go for a walk/hike with the kids and dogs. It was alot of fun! We finished off our walk with heading up to the barn to feed the heifers again. When we got home, we made some Christmas cookies together.
