Well, Christmas has come and gone in a blur of family, food, fun, and lots and lots of snow. It was fun and the girls had a blast. Christmas eve was kind of hard for us though, I had to work so Danny was a good sport and took the girls to Aberdeen with his family, they had dinner and sang Christmas carols, Kylee even had to lead the music for everyone just like mommy dose at church. After they got back to Blackfoot they came by and visited me before they went home. My family also spoiled me, since we weren't able to be at Grandpa Sandau's for our traditional Danish dinner my Grandpa made me a special plate and had Heidi and Sam bring it to me, it was delicious!! Christmas morning I got home from work at 7 and slept till the girls woke up at 8:30. We had breakfast at home then we went to Grandma and Grandpa Sandau's for lunch and then out to my mom and dads to open gifts. We went home for a break and naps and then went to the Georges for dinner and more presents.
Friday we cleaned up the after math and then Danny and I had the opportunity to go with his family to Mountain River Ranch for a sleigh ride dinner and music, it was so much fun, cold but fun. Thanks to mom and dad George for making it possible for us all to go and go kid free. It was a great evening. We even got to see somebody famous, the actor Gary Senise, (CSI New York, Forest Gump) was there having dinner with his family. We got a few pictures and Leslie even went up and got his autograph. I will post the pictures as soon as I get them on our computer but we had a great Holiday. The next few days are going to be a little rough I some how got scheduled to work 3 nights in a row which I have never done so we will see how we fair after Tuesday. Hopefully I will be recouped for the new year and our anniversary.

Wrapped Up

So we finally got our Christmas all wrapped Wednesday night. It has been sitting all bought in the basement now for two weeks and I finally brought myself to get it done with a little help from a complaining elf who took off to play basketball after about 6 packages. Oh well at least he helped right. I think we are just about ready we just need to get his parents gift card and my dads
gift but other than that everything is done, yippee. Well all I can say is this past week has been busy, Monday we had a doctors appointment with Dr. Larson, the baby's heart sounded great and he said everything looks good we go in today for our big ultrasound at the hospital. Danny also had a soccer game that night they won 5 to 3. Tuesday I had a dentist appointment then mutual we went caroling and I froze my but off. Wednesday we watched Kaylynn's kids why she went in for her first ultra sound, then we delivered our Christmas treats and then I went visiting teaching, then wrapped presents. Thursday/last night I worked. Today Friday we have our ultra sound and then the Christmas party for my work. I just hope the weekend will bring a little less business. The girls can't wait to go outside and play in the snow I just hope it will be warm enough that they will get the chance this weekend. Merry Christmas to you all!

Holy cow I am losing track of time!

So any way it has been over two weeks which is craziness.I have tried a couple of times to get on at work at get this thing up dated but every time I tried the internet was down here at work. So her we go for a quick recap. Thanksgiving was great we were with the Georges this year I made the contribution of pies, I made six of them from scratch, I used some apples and cherries that I canned and they turned out pretty darn tasty. We did our annual day after shopping trip we got some great deals and spent way to much money as always. We did however pick a little 2 year old girl off of our giving tree at church and got her some things also. We took the girls out later that day to help us get the finishing things for her gift and they had fun. The last few weeks have been busy going to Danny's soccer games and mutual and working. We did how ever manage to get the tree up the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Here are a few pic from this fall and from the tree decorating. The girls love being outside and they had tons of fun decorating the tree, it will be a miracle if it is still standing by the time Christmas gets here.
