Christmas Tree

We ventured out to Miller Farms in Rio today to get our Christmas tree. The boys did so good walking around and looking for that perfect tree. Once we got our tree cut and ready to be shook the gentleman let the boys hold a tree branch to feel it shake! Sawyer thought this was pretty cool but Mason let go right away.

After we got home we started decorating right away! Carter actually did not help a whole lot because he was more interested in playing with the trucks by himself in the toy room; I think he liked the idea of having all the toys to himself for a little while!

Daddy even skipped hunting today so that we had enough time to set up the train as well! At first the train didn't work but Daddy found the loose wire and all was good!

We are so excited about Christmas and celebrating our Savior's Birthday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even though Tom had to work a 12 hour shift today we still had plenty of fun having Mie Mie and Papa over for a little Thanksgiving meal. We tried to get some good pictures of the boys together and that in itself is entertainment trying to pose them all!

One of Mie Mie's favorite book series are the Llama Llama books. Sawyer found Llama Llama Holiday Drama at his school book fair and we thought that would be the perfect little gift for her; she loved it! After story time we downloaded the new Bible app for kids. The boys really enjoyed sitting on the couch with Mie Mie playing and listening to the Bible stories.

After Papa woke up from his little nap on the couch we thought it would be a great picture of the boys on the couch snuggling up with him but this was the closest we got. The boys were much more interested in horsing around and wrestling with him.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The Ugly Turkey

Sawyer and his class put a play on for their fellow school students and families. We all went to see him including MieMie and Papa and we were so proud of him! I believe this is the first time that Sawyer has been in front of a crowd and said his lines on his own! His entire class did an excellent job.
