FHE Wreaths

Disclaimer: Picture not so great taken with Tanks IPHONE
Tonight for FHE we made popcorn Christmas Wreaths. We made some for our FHE treat and then we also made some for the boys primary teachers. They had fun making them and then after they ate their wreaths while we watch the First Presidency Christmas Devotional.

Fire at Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving we were lucky enough to be invited to some of our new friends house. Tank has known the husband for a while, they both work for Best Buy. They live in a nearby town called Monument. The boys had a really good time playing with their boys and we ate really good. This family is super nice and very welcoming. They invited the Firefighters from the nearby Fire Station to come for dinner and they brought their fire trucks and ambulance. They let all the kids get in the fire truck and Cooper even got to pull the horn. It was a very fun Thanksgiving and we are grateful for our new friendships we have made.

Elves Old School!!

He knows if you have been naughty or nice!

The library had a special event where they had Santa come and tell the kids a story, they sang some songs and last but not least they got to visit with Santa on his lap and get a Candy Cane. I thought I would give it a try since the boys are getting older. They were super excited when Santa arrived but when the time came Cooper wanted nothing to do with him and Brock was only going up there if I was right there. So we waited for our turn by making a craft which Brock insisted on giving to Santa when we got up there. I did get them to sit/stand by Santa but I had to be in the picture!!(Thank goodness for Cropping!) So My question is .......
By the looks of them you have to say Nice but there are definitely days where they are definitely leaning more to the naughty side!!!

Vinyl Projects

For Christmas this year, I got a Vinyl Machine. I opened it a little early to make some gifts for Christmas. I am still learning how to use it but it is fun. Here are a few of the projects I have been working on. Once I put up the quotes in my house I will post pictures of those too!
Here are some chargers that I made for my Visiting Teachers and the ladies I visit teach!

These are the signs I made for Caleb and Cole's Teachers for Christmas.

Invesco Field Tour

We had our second visitors last week. My parents came out to visit us. We were all so excited. We were all feeling a bit under the weather so we didn't do much while they were here. But we did have tickets to go do a tour at Invesco Field. When we went to San Diego in January we did the Petco Park Tour and it was neat so we thought we would give this tour a try. It was a lot of fun to go out on the field and see all the different places in the facility.

There was a Sports Hall of Fame Museum in the building that had a Kids sports fun zone. So before the tour started we went in. They had all kinds of different uniforms and sports equipment that the kids could try on. So here are my boys future Colorado Hall of Famers!!
Cooper the hockey player.

Caleb the football player and Cole the basketball player.

Brock the skier!
Cole suiting up for the big game!!

Let it Snow!

We have lucked out since we have moved to Colorado and only had snow twice. The first time it snowed it snowed a ton. The boys were so excited for the first snow of winter, they wanted to go out and play in it. So we got them all suited up and out they went. They had a lot of fun making and throwing snow balls at each other. Caleb with his cool nerf shades on.
Let the snow ball fight begin!

Cole rolling around in the snow. He loved the snow the most out of everyone.
Cooper enjoyed the snow I don't think he remembered the last time he played in the snow.

Brock getting down and dirty like he does with everything he does.

Cole in attack mode.

Caleb either getting ready to make a snow angel or down and out for the count.

Just so happy to be outside.

Watch out below!
