Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Last Monday we went with some friend's to New Harmony and cut down our Christmas tree's. It was quite the event and ended up being an all day project.  It started off with breakfast at the Alexander's which was quite the ordeal with the pumpkin waffles not turning out.  So that took up all of the morning.  Then we were off to tree hunt.  Not quite.  We had to meet a friend then it was lunch time.  We went to lunch at some nasty Mexican food place in Cedar City.  Then we had to go to Ace for a Christmas tree stand and then the grocery store.  Then we finally went and John and the other boys excuse me Men went and chopped the trees.  After that we went to a friends house and his nice wife made everyone hot chocolate.  Then it was off for home.  It was really fun though even though I have made it sound like it was miserable.  It was to late to decorate the tree so that happened the next night.  Here are some pics of the 2 day event.
It was hilarious watching Keir decorate the tree.  He would but as many ornaments on one branch as he could. As you see in the above picture underneath where his is hanging his next five.

So proud of his tree!

Our Wonderful Weekend

The sparkly trees at home.
John went Buffalo hunting this past weekend so since I am a scaredy cat Charlie and Annika were kind enough to let Keir and I stay with them.  We sure did have fun!!  Until  Sunday and for Keir's safety his dad needed to get home!  J/k
Annika came up with this wonderful project for us to do.  We made sparkly trees to add to our Christmas decor.  Then I helped her finish her sparkly balls.  It was fun and sparkles were EVERYWHERE!!  
The next morning Annika was kind enough to make us pancakes with the most Delicious syrup ever.  The first batch was not so successful so she made oatmeal pancakes which were yummy yum!
 The yummy yum oatmeal pancakes with the most delectable syrup EVER!!

Christmas Fun!!

On Monday our friends Charlie and Annika invited us over for dinner and to make Gingerbread houses.  So much fun.  I have never made one before and I had a great time.  So did Keir.  I was worried that Keir would just want to eat the candy but he didn't he really got into it and surprisingly John did as well.  Then the next day Annika, Avery, Keir and I made the gumdrop trees which was also fun but that time Keir would of rather ate the candy.  We still need to finish the littler one.  Thanks for the fun times Annika!!

Making Peanut Butter Sandwiches

A couple of sunday's ago when we got home from church Keir asked me if I would make him a "sanwich" and I said no because lunch would be done soon.  Well before I knew it my friend Amber asked if I saw what Keir was doing.  Low and behold he just helped himself.  Notice his knife from his little play kitchen.  He even cut the bread in half with it.  What a cutie!

Fun with friends

Keir and Kaylee frosting/eating sugar cookies.
Kaylee shunning Keir for trying to kiss her on the cheek.
My friend Amber and her little girl came and stayed the weekend with us.  I had fun and enjoyed the company.  I always forget to take pictures so this is all I have.

Best Daddy and Husband!

John definitely gets the best husband and daddy award.  It started at I don't even know what time it was to be honest.  All I know was that it was still dark out and I was sleeping.  Keir had a horrible cough and so John went to go check on him and asked if he needed to go pee.  Keir said "yes." Well to late he peed the bed in his deep sleep so the good husband cleaned it all up while I layed in bed wondering what was taking so long.  Then at 9 am we were leaving with some friends to go to Vegas and about 30 mins or more Keir decided to throw-up.  Once again John Cleaned 'er up without even complaining once!  Love you babe you're the best!!
