So on Friday Jason and I went and did some Christmas shopping. When we got back we loaded everyone up and went to the park. We didn't stay long since it was cold and the wind started to pick up. Grandma and the kids. Hailey would look at me for anything.
Hailey going down the slide.
Zoe on the slide. Right before I took the picture her hair was standing on end from the static from the slide.
Kaleb on the swing next to his sisters.
Hailey and Zoe swinging with the help from dad.
Kaleb went to the slide first off he likes the slide.
The first thing that Zoe and Hailey wanted to do was to swing.
Here is a picture of Hailey and Zoe holding hands to walk back to the car. I think it is cute that Zoe likes to hold Hailey's hand and help her when she can.
So this year we were blessed to have Jason's mom come and visit us during Thanksgiving. We put up the Christmas tree before she got here but we waited to decorate it until she was here.
Grandma Helping Kaleb put the ornament on the tree
Jason. Grandma. and Kaleb putting ornaments on.
Hailey helping Grandma and holding a play flower.
Kaleb helping Grandma and Hailey trying to hand an ornament to them. Zoe didn't last long helping with the tree but she thinks it is pretty. The only challenge this year is getting Hailey to leave the ornaments on the tree. Every time we turn our backs for a second she has one and is running down the hall to hide it somewhere.
So last Saturday Jason wanted to put up the Christmas lights. The kids wanted to play in the little bit of snow that we had. So here is a pictures of Jason working on putting up the lights.
Zoe, Kaleb, and Hailey all dressed and ready to play in the snow.
Here is the best smiles that I could get from the kids they wanted to play not hold still for a picture.
Kaleb and Hailey.
Zoe going up a little hill. Also this weekend we were able to trade in the durango and get a Yukon. The Yukon turns out to be 6 inches wider so that will help out when there are 4 car seats to fit into the car.
So a couple of days after Jason's birthday we finally got our first snow of the year. It was the middle of November. The kids were excited they asked if they could make a snowman now. Which we didn't get enough snow for that and it melted.
Well Jason turned 30 in November. So for his birthday we went out on Saturday for a date and we out to dinner and he wanted sushi. After that we went to a couple stores and looked at ideas for Christmas for the kids. We went to Dairy Queen and got some ice cream. On his actual birthday Zoe helped me make a cheesecake. She was excited for dad to come home and see it also so she could eat some. Here is the cake
Here is Jason's, Hailey's, Zoe's and part of Kaleb's head to help blow out the candles.
So at the end of October we had an ultrasound and found out we are having a baby boy in March the downside is my computer isn't working with me so I can put the pictures on the computer. As soon as I figure it out I will put them up.
So the day before Halloween we got our pumpkins carved. Well at least two of the six pumpkins that we grew. Jason was awesome about getting them all ready. He asked Zoe what she wanted she wanted a happy face. He asked Kaleb and he wanted a mean or scary face. So for some reason I didn't get a picture of the happy one but I did the other one.
Jason carving it out. Also on the counter there is a container with a red lid. We had 6 to 8 lady bugs living in it for about a week and a half until the leaf we put in it started to go moldy but Zoe loved the things until the end.
The scary pumpkin for Kaleb.
Hailey up helping dad. She would stick her hand into the guts and then smell her fingers. She was quite excited to stand up by dad.
Our cute kids all dressed up for the trunk or treat at the church. When we picked out the outfits Kaleb wanted the swat one because it had all sorts on pockets and things in them. Zoe for the passed two years has been a witch and she wanted to continue to be a witch. When we first got it for her she said she was an evil witch but by Halloween she said she was a good witch. Hailey we picked her cheerleader outfit because it would fit her also it had long sleeves.
So after 2 or so hours Jason had the bed up and we moved some furniture around in the kids rooms. This is what this room ended up looking like.
The book case moved and we moved a different dresser into the room.
I put the books into the closet where some blankets used to live.
The toy box was moved into the closet. The bunk bed all finished and the crib right next to it. So the crib will stay there until the new baby we are going to have is big enough to sleep in a real bed.
