Have you hugged a tree lately?

The weekend before Christmas we went tree shopping in Washington Kansas. I know I was a little behind but their were acres of trees and we chose the best lookin' one. The boys had so much fun. I love the pic of them hugging their Christmas tree. The man who came down to chop the tree down had a real chuckle with Owen. He lifted the tree and was carrying it to his truck as Owen was saying "Wow, you have big muscles you are Strong!" He nearly dropped the tree b/c he was laughing so hard. It was very cute. I love the pic of the tree smashed in between the boys. They had so much fun. We will have to make this a tradition.

Cookie Time

I have been baking up a store this holiday season. I made 4 dozen for my Public Library as a fundraiser and 2 dozen for MOPS and another 2 dozen for my church. The boys loved helping me with these.

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year and my Grandparents from Stockton and my mother from Salina came down. After the turkey meal we made sugar cookies. Owen would only make a present and he always took the center of the dough.

Every year I normally make Santa cookies out of Nutter Butter's but this year I tried the mice! Aren't they the cutest!
