Our Christmas in Pictures

Christmas Eve we went to my parents house. Normally we have a HUGE family dinner and exchange gifts but this year we did it a little different. This year we only had my family and my two older brothers families at my parents and I enjoyed it so much better. It was just more intimate that way. The grandkids are so spoiled by their MawMaw and PawPaw. Here are a few pictures from that evening. I didnt  take a whole lot.
PK in her sweet dress(review and giveaway to come)
Peyton getting excited about the gifts.
My sweet niece Taylin who just opened her first "boobie bras" from Aunt Crystal. She had been asking for them and when she opened the present she was so embarrassed. You can tell she is still red in the face. Sweet.
Peyton and a crawly bug.

Later that night, we went home and put the boys to bed. Presley decided she was to excited to sleep so she was awake when Santa came. Next year, she wont be so lucky to see him.
Santa came! Our living room is tiny so it was hard to get a good picture.
Parker on his bike.
Peyton with his bike
Peytons favorite gift, a bow and arrow!

Another thing that made Christmas so great this year, it was a White Christmas!!! We have never had a white Christmas before. I do remember a few times from my childhood it would spit snow but nothing ever stuck. Until Christmas of 2010! We were all totally soooo excited.

This is my dad lol, yes he is wearing shorts in the snow. He wears shorts year round. The only time he puts on pants is on Sunday for Church, for funerals, and if your lucky your wedding.
My mom and Presley throwing snowballs at brothers.
Presley was so excited that it snowed too.

The next day they were able to ride their bikes in the lot across the street.

Shelby didnt mind the snow much either.

Our gorgeous Shelby!
He is pretty good with that thing!
The hubby with his 4th child.
This was taken later on Christmas day at my Sister in laws house. We had went over there for a Christmas get-to-gether and she snapped this shot. I love it. All the colors work so well and you can tell how much Peyton adores his little sister.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and are planning something extra fun for New Years Eve!
And since you made it this far check out my giveaway sidebar at the top right of my blog and enter the giveaways that are posted. There will be LOTS more coming.
-Good Night!

Solcreations review/giveaway

I had the pleasure recently to get to know Linda from SolCreations. She was such a joy to work with and also had very fast shipping which for me, is always a plus. Another great reason to buy from Solcreations is 5% of their sales will go to Meningioma Mommas 501(c) (3) a not-for-profit Organization! Which provides support and valuable recourses to persons like herself and to all those affected by M tumors which are mostly on different parts of the brain and mostly in women. Not to many people know about these type of tumors but about 80% are benign while the other 20% are not!(I got this info from her profile). How great is that?
Here are a few of the things I love from her shop.


SolCreations was so kind to send Presley Kate a very sweet and soft beanie that we love. PK did not want to take it off. She loves it. And the best part about this beanie is the price, $7! You just cant beat it for the price. Get yours HERE
One lucky winner will win this pink flower hair clip from her SHOP

I have been wanting to get some pictures of the three kids together for a while but its just not easy to get them all to cooperate for me. Well this weekend was no different.

Also dont forget to enter these giveaways HERE and HERE! They have supper low entries and would be awesome Christmas gifts!!! Both of them end this week.  

Train ride with Santa and Snow:)

We took the kids to the mountains on Sunday to ride the train with Santa! They had so much fun! I think it may be a new Christmas tradition for our family. We couldnt have picked a better day either because it was snowing up there. It was so cold but we didnt care. We dont get to see snow to often so the boys had a blast. Here is some pictures of our adventure! I apologize in advance because there is alot of them :)

They let me get a few pictures of them before they jumped into the snow:)


Mamas little SnowAngel :)

Bout to board the ChooChoo

Enjoying the view

My 3 Blessings :) Life really couldnt get much better!

Story time

Waiting patiently for Santa to arrive

It was breathtaking up there!

Here comes Santa Claus...

PK was so excited to see "HoHo"

Peyton had just told Santa he wanted a bow and arrow for Christmas and Santa asked if he was going to shoot deer and Peyton said yes. Santa then asked what was he going to use to guide his sleigh HaHa. It was pretty cute!

Even the Grinch showed up.

Gingerbread man paided us a visit.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

In front of the train.

Loved the snow!

I am so glad that we decided to make the trip to ride the train. I know the boys will remember this for a long time and its something Kris and I will never forget.
