Christmas Eve/Christmas Day 2012

More Christmas Fun!

Before we left for Utah, the kids got to meet Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas.  Luckily, there were no surprises. :) 

When we first arrived to my Mom's home, the snow was mostly gone.  This snowman was all that was left standing.

However, Christmas Eve came and the snow started falling.  A lot of it!  It was a magical wonderland for teh kids.

Ice Skating

We went to Utah this year for Christmas.  Spent it with my Mom and Jeremy's family.  We had such a great time.  We took the kids ice skating for the first time.  It took awhile for all of us to get used to the ice, but after a few falls the kids slowly got used to it.  Logan was actually able to ice skate on his own by the end.  Kamryn had a harder time with it, but she still loved it.  Such a fun family memory!  :) 

For you Rosa!

I have a friend who misses the fact that I do not blog anymore.  So, for her, and because I want to keep documenting family life for my own personal reasons I am going to attempt starting this up again.  My big debate is to start where I left off or just start with the here and now.  Knowing me, I will attempt to do a catch up.  I can not believe a whole year has gone by.  Let's see how I do.

The Trifecta Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving did not come without its challenges this year.  We call it the trifecta Thanksgiving. It started off with an injury at the Turkey bowl.  Jason dislocated his pinky and we had to bandage it up.  Luckily, it did not keep us from going to my sister's house for Thanksgiving.  When we got there, all was perfect.  The kids enjoyed there activities with their cousins and Suzanne and I enjoyed cooking.  That is, until I sliced my finger with the potato peeler and started bleeding pretty badly.  That was painful!

Well, we overcame our first two obstacles and sat down to a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner.  Here was the third part of our trifecta.  I decided to feed Maryn some of Suzanne's sweet potato casserole.  I then tried to lay her down for a nap, and she was not having it.  She was crying and screaming and just not happy.  So, I got her up and the whole family went out for a walk before dessert.  We then noticed Maryn's eyes were really red and puffy and watering.  This was after she was done crying.  I figured she was having an allergy issue like she has had in the past.  When we got  back from our walk, Maryn proceeded to throw up, twice and that is when the party ended.  Suzanne was paranoid it was the flu but when she told me that her sweet potato casserole had 6 eggs in it, I knew that was the culprit.  But, it killed the rest of the evening so we took home some pie and called it a day.  

Maryn's 1st birthday

I think as you have more children, the less documented things become and the less hoopla is given.  At least, that is the case in our family.  Maryn actually celebrated her first birthday twice.  Once with her Aunt Shaina and our family, and once with my brother and his wife.  But not too many pics or really any video was taken.  She wasn't a huge fan of the cupcakes and cake and we have since learned she has a mild allergy to egg whites, so there ya go.  Here are some pics we did get.

We started her birthday off getting breakfast at BC Cafe.  A favorite of ours.  :)

That night Jason's stepsister Shaina came over with delicious cupcakes and we had a small celebration.  :)

 She really loved digging her hands into the cupcake but didn't eat too much.
 Thanks for coming to play Shananae!!  :)
 A couple days later, my brother and his wife Whitney came up and we had another little party for Maryn.  Whitney made the cake.  I thought it was pretty cute!

We did not take any pics of her eating cake, but we do have video.  However it is not posting.  Maybe later....
