Merry Christmas From Our Home To Yours!!! Posted by Picasa

Merry Christmas!!

I wanted to be able to send everyone a Christmas picture, but alas, I couldn't so I thought that I would include the picture that went on the Christmas Cards on the blog. David and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our home to yours!!!

We have been very busy here getting ready for Christmas and trying to keep one 3 going on 4 year old boy from getting any more cabin fever than he has already. The past two days that have been warm have been wonderful. Yesterday while Jordyn napped Chance and I played outside. We borrowed cousin Riley's snowboard and headed for a small hill. I warned Chance that snowboarding wasn't easy, but he assured me that it wasn't any problem, all it took was practice. So off we went. I think we have a shredder on our hands, much to the dismay for his diehard skiing dad. He was a natural and seemed to have the balance right off the bat! Watch out X Games!!!

Today while Grandma watched Jordyn, David, Chance and I headed to the "L & M" Hill to slide. We had a blast between going down the hill in various combinations, we had snowball fights and made a snowman. I am so thankful for this warm weather, we really needed to get outside and wear him out a little bit.

Christmas Eve will be spent at my nephew Aaron & Tracy's house with family. Christmas day will be spent here at the house. We shipped the turkey to my sister's house to be cooked since we haven't had a working oven since Thanksgiving. I can't wait for Christmas morning. I won't put the Christmas presents out until Christmas Eve because my little boy would not be able to leave them alone. It will be so fun to see his face when he gets up and sees the presents. I am so thankful that we have been so blessed. I am striving to teach Chance the true meaning of Christmas.

Have a wonderful Christmas!!!

Pictures of the house

Thought I better get some pictures of the house up here. As you can see David is busy getting the island in. It is kind of a pain because we are obviously putting the sink in there and so he has to run all new plumbing which I think I have heard a couple of times that he hates to do!

The other pictures are of all of our new cabinets sitting it the living room waiting to be put into place. I would really like to get them moved out of there so we can put up a Christmas tree.

I have a guy coming today to bring me samples of concrete countertops. I have been doing some research on them, and I would like to actually see them "in person." They say they can do alot with cement now days.

The heating guys finished up their work today. We now have heat in the new parts of the house (and an air conditioner, if need be). This is a good thing since our bedroom is one of those rooms and it was getting mighty cold. Good thing Jordyn is like her brother and doesn't mind being "a little cool."

Other than that, I have been trying to synchronize two kids and get a good Christmas picture, not easy!!! I don't know that I am taking comfort in the fact that Sue Williamson put on her blog the other day that it is finally getting easier to get a good Christmas Card picture. How old is Brock, how many years will it take.... I guess I should just be happy that my son has pants and a shirt on in the Christmas picture. I think it was two minutes after the "session" was done and he had his shorts and tank top back on.
