Nov 28

Yesterday the Granparents came over to celebrate Kaitlyn's birthday with us.
Kaitlyn also wanted to set up the Christmas tree, even though it wasn't quite after her birthday yet. Here she is posing in her new dress from Grandma.
Rachael is somewhat less cooperative in her new outfit from Grandma.
Jaden didn't get a new outfit, but wanted lots of pictures with Hobbes in front of the tree. Who can resist?

Kaitlyn's 7th Birthday Party

Kaitlyn had her 7th birthday party yesterday. How could she possibly be 7 already?
They played a few games like Musical Pillows
and Clean Your Room - the sock fight game.
Then they watched How To Train Your Dragon.
Auntie Kendra made a Tinkerbell cake for Kaitlyn this year. It even sparkled!
And of course there were presents.
Everyone had fun, especially the birthday girl.

O Christmas Tree

Since we have a busy weekend with Kaitlyn's birthday, and there's no school today we decided to go out in the snow and pick out our Christmas tree today.
Jaden wanted this little guy,
but the rest of us opted for a big one. Good thing Daddy came with us to carry it! We won't decorate it until after Kaitlyn's birthday but now we've got it!

First Snow

We got our first dump of snow for the season yesterday.
It was the first time Jaden remembered seeing snow. He kept saying it was "raining".
When we went out to play in the snow the first thing he wanted to do was what he always wants to do - "sing".
It was the first snow for the puppy, too. He still liked playing with his ball.
Jaden eventually got down off his swing and started cleaning everything because it was "dirty". He cleaned the ladder, the railings and even the trees!
Being a toddler, everything still goes in the mouth - even the snow on the trees! Better than yellow snow, I guess!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today is my Daddy's birthday so I made him a cake! I did this while my big sisters were at school.
That way I could lick all the spoons by myself.
I made a big mess making this cake,
so I helped clean it up.
