Getting in the Christmas Spirit



















Once again, blogger is being impossible with my pictures. Oh well. So, I've been creeping my way into the Christmas Spirit, but I think I'm getting there. Last weekend we had a breaking of the House Arrest rules to go cut down our Christmas tree. I feel like going out to the tree farm is not breaking the rules. I feel like being outside is the good kind of germs...but that is just my logic. Where we broke the rules was by going to eat at Jucy's first. This was Kanyon's first Jucy's trip and for sure not his last. It is his dad's fav burger joint in town. Yummy yummy. No burgers for Kanyon (though I did tell him what he was missing out on by pulling this no eating thing). I did get a funny picture of Kanyon in the middle of "telling us a big story". He's become so talkative lately. The picture made me laugh (and it shows his big boy teeth).






Here are klp and KLP checking out the tree we picked. I really really like it. It is tall and skinny because we don't have a lot of room for it, but it is so great. It makes sense though, have you seen my hubby? I guess I just dig tall and skinny. Kanyon was inspecting all the grass and dirt.




klp monitoring the cutting down process.




back to digging in the dirt...and yes, he tried to eat everything he picked up.






Here are klp and jsp's ornaments for this year.







Then the next day, Gary and Sharon had us over for lunch after church. They are a 100% kid free house, so they wanted to have us over so we could get to "eat out" after church. They pulled out their high chair from when their girls were little. Sharon said she bought this chair in California in the 60's! Kan loved it!








Here he is in the walker at My Aunt and Uncle's house (a "safe place" for Kanyon and a great place for Kory to watch his games on a big HD tv!) He was soooooo tired, he kept laying down!









Check out his alfalfa. I promise we don't make this, his hair just does this no matter what we do!









Now that klp can get around on his own, he finds himself in some tricky spots. Like this.....



















Here he is getting into it....













"uh oh" no where to go here. I had to help him get out after this.














Mindi came and took our Christmas card pics tonight. I'm anxious to see if we got a good one. I have the smiliest boy in the world and we COULD NOT get him to smile!!!! Oh well....stay tuned!

Kanyon does seem so smiley and a ham! So cute! It's really good you all got out! High chairs like that from so far back just kill me. They were made like everything else back then - tough.
