Its Beginning To Look A Lot like Christmas....

Well it is December 13th and its finally starting to look a lot like Christmas. Last night we hung out with our friends Brandon and Ashlee and we made a Sugar Cookie Ginger Bread House. We don't have any pictures at the moment but we will get them. YES, it is finally snowing today...which we are totally excited for because I AM DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS.

Brent and I are going to my work party tonight and we are suppose to bring a favorite Christmas treat and I love to make Sugar Cookies with red frosting and sprinkles!

Last but not least, this is our wonderful Christmas Tree! Its a bit blurry, sorry about that...I couldn't stand still when I was taking the picture I guess. We are really excited for Christmas to come and to spend some time with our family's!!

Yes, Brent has been a good boy and there are some gifts for him under the tree!

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Both me and Brent had to work on Friday so we ended up staying home on Thanksgiving Day and had dinner with just the two of us. It was great. We still had a big dinner with potatoes, rolls, turkey, stuffing and Martinellias to drink!

We then topped off our meal with this wonderful home made Dutch Apple Pie with Carmel! Boy that was the best part of Thanksgiving. After we had lunch, we both took a nap. Another best thing was we didn't even have to get out of our jammies. That's the way EVERY Thanksgiving should be!!!

We ended up going to Rupert/Burley for the weekend. We had Thanksgiving Dinner with my mom's side of the family. My one brother was there with his wife Joni and daughter Ava. Me and Ava have had a great bonding since she was born. When she was a baby we used to hang out on the couch and watch cartoons all morning! (Watching cartoons is right up my ally too.) So on Thanksgiving she was my little shadow. We were hunting for Rabbits for most of the day. She was so stinking cute that I just had to take a picture of her with her little mouse ears, toy gun, and my little bike that I used to ride when I was her age. Then after we were done hunting Rabbits we played Barbies and ate Otter Pops!! (Clint, I thought of you guys and knew you would love this picture!)
We also got to see 2 of my mom's sisters. One of them is from California and Brent has never met her so it was nice to see her and her family. We then went over to Brent's parents house and had a great time playing games and hanging out!! The weekend went by all too fast but that is just the beginning because Christmas is right around the cor nor!!! We are so grateful and thankful to have such a great family!!!
