What fun!! When all was quiet late Christmas night my sweet hubby said this was the most fun he has ever had on Christmas...and I agree. Kailtyn was a hoot!!! Viewing this season through the eyes of a child and seeing the wonder of how special it has been to Kaitlyn has been the greatest gift. 
Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!!

 Kaitlyn is pretty fascinated with little brother..sometime she calls him little bother (ha!!)

 Uh-oh! Watch out Kaitlyn, daddy is going to have you on a budget soon!! (just kidding honey :)

 You better not pout!!
 Grandma is smitten!
 Is it time to open presents yet!!!

Happy Birthday Jesus

Happy Birthday Jesus.....You are the gift!!
Some family friends of ours had a Happy Birthday Jesus party! Kaitlyn had such a great time making a nativity necklace, a manger, a door hanger, and getting to decorate the Happy Birthday Jesus cake! It was such a special time for us to steal away and remember the reason we celebrate the season. My good friend Blair read scriptures to the kids about the birth of our Savior and each kiddo got to put sprinkles on the cake. Blair was in my E-Teen CBS group a couple years ago and she is such a beautfiul girl..inside and out! Blair came over a couple weeks ago and took some awesome pictures of my kiddos here.  

Thank you Hullender family!!! What a great Christmas memory and a tradition I want our family to continue for years to come!!

Christmas Fun!

We went to daddy's office to see Santa!!
Here are some past Santa pic's :) 
Santa's little helper (Jackson) slept through the 2010 Santa event.

Kaitlyn told Santa want she wanted for Christmas and expected the presents right then. Poor thing! 
We tried to explain she will have to wait a  few more days.

On the way home Kaitlyn said "Oh no mom! We forgot to pet Santa's reindeer!" What a cutie I have!! We went home and had a fun reindeer snack
 Kaitlyn also got to bake cookies and made homemade donuts with the girls at Grammy and Granddad's house.

Today we are going to a Happy Birthday Jesus party and tonight we open presents at Grandma and Papa Harper's house!!! Wishing you a Merry Christmas!!!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Thursday I was able to attend Kailtyn's Christmas Party at Mother's Day Out. We had fun decorating cookies!
 Last night Kailtyn and Chris got all bundled up and went on a hayride with the girls to look at Christmas lights.

 And tonight, Kailtyn and I made snowmen smores! Yummy!!
