Gingerbread House

This is Teagan's gingerbread house that he made all by himself in Kindergarten one day last week. He was very proud of it...and plans to eat it on Christmas. (yuck)

The Makings of a Snowman

This is the view from our living room window. Happy children at play.
Kamryn and I enjoyed watching the boys out the window, but enjoying the warm house together.
Teagan nibbling on a piece of Frosty.
It didn't take long to convince Daddy to join the fun.
Team work.
The finished project. 'Frosty.'

Beginnings of Winter

This was our first good snow. And the boys really went to town.
There was no prompting from mom in their ideas of snow play. They knew exactly what to do.
Kamryn sitting on our ornament box really interested in our Christmas tree. She sat there for a good hour....looking at the lights, trying to touch the ornaments and beads, and enjoying it to pieces.


We were able to travel south for Thanksgiving to see Gma and Papa at the ranch. This is one place that the children truly love! They were able to climb on the big stack of hay....
feed cows....
Teagan searching for more cows, including a new mama with her baby (which we didn't find)......
Kamryn excited about everything going on.....
feed the horses....
and riding Sultan. Teagan knew that he didn't need someone holding him on...he just had a nice grip on Sultan's mane and was off.
Brody has an interesting look in this pic...but seriously loved every second of his ride as well.
And Kamryn could not get enough of the horse ride. She even rocked her body back and forth to get the horse to move. Too cute.

And this was all the first day of our trip. We were also able to see great gma, aunt leathra, and other uncles, aunts, and cousins. It was a very successful trip!

Fall Fun

So we kind of put off raking the leaves until it was really snowing! And , of course, the boys thought they needed to help. I'm not sure how much help they really are when they jump in the piles that John creates, but still.
Lounging on the bags of leaves.
