Getting Ready for Christmas!!

We had the worst snow storm and it is still snowing. Jaxon had such a blast!! We are so excited for Chrismtas and hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. PS That is Jaxon... He was outside all day. He would come in for a little hot chocolate and back out he went. Tavin was not a big fan!!

It was Pocatello's first real snow day, and the Boys loved it. Tavin didn't know what to think at first and Jaxon was so thrilled. His friend Benton came over to make a fort. They had a blast.

I am like my parents. For the last coupld of weeks I have used Kris Kringle as a great disciplinary tool. Needless to say when Jaxon was asked what he got in his shoes his first response was, "I didn't get sticks." We have this tradition from when we lived in Germany. You put your shoes out on the 5th of Dec. and if you get treats it means to keep up the good work for Christmas, and if you haven't been good, you get sticks. No sticks at our house this year. We have a few more weeks to use Santa now. We had fun. Tavin was most excited about the treats. These were the new shirts they got. Tavin is in that cheesy grin stage. Every time he sees the camera, that is what you get. They are such a blast and couldn't be more excited about the Holidays. PS They just got haircuts and they look so grown up!!

Tavin the RASCAL!

So here is my sweet darling after using my mascara as lipstick. Doesn't he look so sad about getting in trouble!! Should I be worried??

Gingerbread House FUN!!

For Family Home Evening last night we went to our friends house to make Gingerbread houses. Notice Tavin is eating the candy, Jaxon loved decorating and so did Daddy!! It was a blast.


Tavin is going to be the next professional painter. While I was gone Visiting Teaching the little rascal got into a permanent marker and wrote all over our walls, appliances, down the stairs, and on his little while shirt. At the moment it was not funny at all so these pictures were taken the next morning.
