Christmas Pictures



For our Christmas pictures I took the kids to a photography place in town. I had really good luck with this last year with Ellas 2 year pics so I was hoping this year would go as smoothly. No such luck. Of course! But whatever. We got them done

PURE Entertainment

One cold day in December we decided to head to PURE Entertainment with some friends. Due to some recent bad press I was a bit nervous about taking the kids, but the place was fabulous! Our friends and I were the only ones there. We had the whole place to ourselves! It was perfect! The kids bounced and bounced and Natalie and I had time to talkSmile

Ouch Ella! That has to hurt!

Bell Concert

When Kyler attends WOW on Wednesday nights at church they (sometimes) practice ringing the bells. Kyler has absolutely no desire to play bells, however, he was not given much of a choice!

But, as you can see, he pretty much just stood there holding the bells!

Kyler’s 5th Birthday

All Kyler asked for for his birthday was a Guinea Pig. That’s it. He had his

heart set on that.

I’ll be honest though, my heart was NOT set on that! I didn’t want to add more

stress to my life! But, I will do anything to make my little man smile. So, I gave

in. We went to Petco. While we were checking out the Guinea Pigs the manager

came over to help us. He then told us that his ex wife had a Guinea Pig that

they were trying to find a home for. He gave us their number. When we were

out of Petco I called them. Everything seemed to work out perfectly. Come to

find out the people we got the Guinea pig from were in laws of a family from our

church. When things work out I know it is meant to be.

Kyler named his new pet “I Love You” but has since resorted back to

her original name, which is “Pepper”. Pepper has been a fabulous

addition to our little house, but honestly, I could do without the

Kyler also received a few other presents. Nothing huge, but a

couple of coloring things to keep him occupied on cold winter days.

On his birthday we had a family party at 1pm and then he had his friend party

at 4:15. Both were a huge success!
