Christmas is coming

These are sugar cookies. I was taught at a relief society activity how to decorate the cookies.  I was pretty impressed how well they turned out.  They look even better in person. Its very time sensitive to decorate them like this.
 Drew,Stormi, Kai, and Brynn came down to visit us for 5 days. It was a blast! Good thing we moved into our bigger place!! Drew had testing in a town near us. Kai and Isabel had a blast.  They went to our bounce house here, and we were able to go see Sherlock Homes 2.  I really enjoyed it.
                                            Dress up
                                          " I'm so pretty I could cry!"
                                              Story Time

Kai's Quotes during his visit:
(When I first got home to see Kai)
Me: "wow Kai your voice is really deep."
Kai: "yeah. I have a cough"  (he didn't have a cough)
Kai: "you like my black pants? They are soft and cuddly."

(When Kai first got to our house, and was talking to Aaron.)
Kai:  " Your house is really small!!"

(Kai saying a prayer)
Kai:  "Dear Heavenly Father... Please bless Isabel won't be naughty anymore. and grumpy."
Kai: "Please bless that my dad will get a job like the Flash."

Kai: " I will miss you Isabel until I see you again."


Thanksgiving 2011


We went to Waterloo IA at Aaron's grandparents house for thanksgiving.  We have been going there since we have been in Ames.  We love how close we are to them.  Also one of Aaron's uncles moved back to Waterloo, so there are two uncles, and grandparents nearby.  Its fun to get together.  Brooke and Kristian moved from Oregon this last summer, so they were able to come too.  There was 9 kids there under the age of 6.  It was pretty loud. 

  
Nikki brought a bounce house which everyone enjoyed.

 After thanksgiving dinner, we headed up to Tyler and Nikki's house for the weekend.  Brooke and Kristian and their kids came too. The girls went black Friday shopping while the boys stayed home with the kids.
We also went to the mall and attempted to get a picture with Santa.  The lady in the picture asked if I wanted to take another with Santa crying too!! ahah it was pretty funny!!
 This is Isabel's new cousin Sophie.  She was always trying to help her by putting her binkie back in her mouth, or getting us if she started to cry.
