Christmas 09'

Christmas Preparations!!!
for Christmas this year we got a Lionel Train set from Papa and Mima. We set it up when we set up the tree it has been a really big hit at our house :D
Making cookies is always fun!!!

Christmas Eve with the Cookes:

The last thing we did was go to feed the "reindeer" which were actually just deer but equally fun.

Mud is fun!!!!

Kevin loved the quad bike and was willing to ride with anyone that would take him this is Kevin and Mark

They got so muddy during the taking of this picture :D

Adam was not so into the quad bike but loved stomping in the mud and pushing his truck through it.

Kevin after the Picture of the quad bike going by, lol

Daddy and Kevin!!

We started the day at the snow in Forest Falls!!

Wow what a handsome guy!!

Kevin and Kien best buddies!!!

Adam so enjoyed eating the snow and he like sledding as well

Christmas Morning!!!

We got a Wii!!

Aunt Sarah!!

Uncle Josh!!

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year in our new home and with people we love to be around. We love Aunt Sarah and Uncle Josh coming up to hang with us for Christmas morning and although pictures apparently were not taken we went to Mima and Papa's house after Christmas morning and ended our day and Nana's house with Uncle Geoffrey and Uncle Christopher and Aunt Lindsey. We were able to make the rounds and see everyone it was really fun!!!

a new place to call home

Well we are in, so to speak, we are still unloading boxes and we don't even want to talk about the garage which is a two car garage that we can barely fit our one car in right now but we are getting there. Here are some pics of things that are coming together

my favorite thing about my new house is probably this room and my new washer and dryer!!
Of course this is just about the extent of our Christmas decorations but I love them so far
sorry this one is so dark but it is our living room which looks just about livable at this point

aaawww yes the kitchen, I love love love the cabinet space and counter space and how easy it is to clean....and my new table which I adore. and my refridgerator which is so awesome!!
The boys' room. thanks to some friends we have bunkbeds set up for them and they love them and you'll have to overlook that all the tape has not been removed since painting but it is looking like it will be a fun room.

so that is it for now I will have more pics soon hopefully as we maybe work on our bedroom, I love my bedroom we had shannon, the most wonderful trim/chair rail cutter help us out in there and it looks amazing...the walls do anyway the floor well....we have a couple of boxes that need unpacked in there and dressers would really help speed that along maybe this weekend we will work on that.
