Brody and Baylee got to make a snowman with uncle Jake. They had so much fun!  


 Well it is only 2 months late but I finally finished Zoe's baby blanket. I love how it turned out. It was so much fun working on this cute little ladybug and all the different rows. I hand pieced and quilted it after I saw a pattern for it at the store.

I think she likes it!

Decorating the Tree

For family night we decided to put up our christmas tree and decorate it. We got out all our decorations and let the kids put them wherever they wanted. I love that they are old enough to help now, it is so much more fun.
 We had to get a pic of Zoe, she was just hanging out in her swing watching us do all the work. She is getting so big already.

 Brody finding the perfect spot for his ornament.
 I got to fill in all the empty spots and space out some of the other decorations that were a little close together. I love this time of the year, it is my favorite!!

Cutting down our Christmas Tree

We love real Christmas trees and we have searched for a good place to cut them down. There have been a few places that were not very impressive but this year I think we finally found it. The thing with real trees is that as much as you search for the perfect tree you will never find it. You have to be okay with a little character. It was so much fun walking through the little forest of trees with the kids and listening to them say "this one looks pretty good" or "what about this one." We finally found one that looked like it would work. It was a little tall but we figured we could just cut it down when we got it home.
 Brody and Baylee wanted to help cut it down so after Dallas got it cut he let them use his knife to cut some of the extra branches off the bottom.
 Here is the branch Baylee cut off. She was pretty proud of herself.
 Next we had to Drag it back to the car and tie it to the top. Dallas says he wants to get an old ford station wagon just for this day so he can look like the Griswolds in Christmas Vacation. I don't love that movie but it is one of his favorite Christmas movies.
 Me and my kiddos hiking through the trees. Zoe was all snuggled in the backpack and slept through the whole thing. She is such a good baby. I love my family so much and I am so excited for the fun things we get to do this Christmas season.
