Jason's latest buck kill.

As most of you know I married a die-hard hunter - here is his latest 'wall hanger' to add to our collection. I am the trophy wife who allows one head in my living room. ONE. The rest live in the garage or in the basement. Kade went back out with his dad and helped bring it in, he had a blast.

Bathroom remodel.

A 'short' 9 months ago, my husband and I decided to give our bathroom a facelift. Let me remind you, we finished this project in a 'short' 9 months. What we did, most people could probably handle in a weekend. Ah the life we lead with 2 helpers to keep us sidetracked.... I wish I had the before pictures, but they are on a harddrive I can't get to open... anywho.. What did we do:

1. Removed wallpaper. (I cussed the guy who invented wallpaper alot that week)
2. Tore up the carpet.
3. Painted everything.
4. Tiled the floor.
5. All new trim
6. Applied vinyl lettering

That's it! =) Quite a task, huh? I love it!

Bath time fun.

Christmas Day

Karlie with her new stroller. She pushes this thing for miles a day.
Kade with his new game - he also rides this thing for miles a day.

Santa smiles....

Karlie is in preparation on how to take care of a newborn. =)

Karlie opening presents with her Nana.

Kade diving right in, but when he realized it was clothes the box got tossed.

Kade discovering what Santa left.

Kade seeing the stash for the very first time... We did things a little different
since we were trying to get a few people there that morning. He didn't 'wake up' to
this... Santa "happened" to come while he was playing in the basement with his
Dee Dee. My brother rang the door bell and yelled HO HO HO... you could
hear Kade coming up the stairs as fast as his little feet could go and he screached
SAAANNNTTAA.... and flew open the door to find no Santa. I really thought
he was going to cry, but then he saw what he had left and it was all good!

Christmas Eve

Karlie's other Christmas Dress...

This is the nativity scene I have in the kids room and it looked awesome lit up at night. Kade and I went over and over who everyone was, why they were there... I think he's got it!

Our attempt at a family picture!

Karlie ready for church, but not ready to take pictures.

Kade ready for his first church program, but also, not ready for pictures!!
