It's about time I update this thing.

The title says it all. First of all my computer has been sick and I miss her ALOT. My flash drive has not been working so I can't download my pictures off of my camera. You have to hold her just right and press really hard in a certain spot. Therefore you do everything one handed. Which after a while your hand hurts. And I like to add a picture if I can. Now I just hope I can remember how to do it. It's been so long.


First of all How was every one's Christmas? Our's was great. Everyone was here! Oh yeah, talk about fun. For our Christmas eve dinner Tasha suggested Sweet Pork and the works. It was so yummy. I think we have started a new tradition. We had our traditional Christmas eve with FHE. Then of course new PJ's.
Then just a nice evening , all the kids sleep together in the basement. Santa delivers their stockings to them. It keeps them down stairs and buys us a little bit of time to sleep in and then we all gather together and show each other what everyone got and that is when dad and I open our stockings. It really is an enjoyable time. Then we go upstairs and have our gifts. We open them up one by one. You can do this when your kids are older.. It makes the morning last longer. Then we go to the kitchen where Kevin makes Swedish pancakes. Then everyone is off to do what ever. Sleep, call the grandparents, sleep, go see family and friends.




The next day was Emma's b-day. Some how I got wrapped into trying to make a "Cupcake" cake. They do make a mold but it is 30.00 at Target. Just didn't want to do that right now. So Tasha and I were trying to come up with ideas. Well I had an idea and passed it my Tasha and the next thing I know I am doing it. My intention was to make Tasha do it. Long story short it didn't work. Need more time to come up with a better idea. but Tasha did have cupcakes made. I went over and helped frost them. Did a fancy swirl job with sprinkles. Emma was so cute and guess what no pictures. Oh well, happy birthday to you sweet girl who is now two and is talking so much.


Then we headed up to the cabin. So love being at the cabin. We went snowmobiling, played Pac Man. I didn't do very well. But some in the group did. Got some scrapping done. Oh I made my cushions for my couch. It has been about a 6 year project. I will have to post a picture. Later after I take one. It looks great. We went to Big Springs several times. One of our favorite things to do.



We even got to see the moose's. It was great. Then for new years eve the cousins came over and played games and ate alot of food. Then it was time to get the bubbly out and do the count down and jeers. Here's our group.

Well that's about it in a nut shell for our Christmas and new years eve. It was fun and I hope that everyone has a very Happy new year.

I am being kicked off the computer. So I will have to write more later and add more pictures.

Love, love, kiss, kiss

the mom

What a great idea to have all the kids sleep together! I'm glad you had fun.
