The Big Guy

At our church Christmas Party, there was a special visit from Santa. The kids were so excited to see him and tell him exactly what they want for Christmas. And there was a special bonus - Mrs. Claus came too! Unfortunately, I cut her out of all the pictures. Sorry! When they finally got to Santa, their shyness kicked in. They did talk this year, but it was really quiet. I had to tell Santa what they said. Funny kids. Here are some pics from the event. (oh, the party was "Polar Express" themed which is why we are all in our pajamas. And check out my cute, fat baby in his Christmas jammys and hat!)

Oh, the goodness of Thanksgiving. I eat all day long that day! We had a great Thanksgiving day at the Grants house this year. Turkey, layer jello, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls with honey butter, glazed carrots, deviled eggs, fudge, pie..... It was great food. The kids played pin the hat on the turkey and did 3 Christmas crafts. I made three cute bows for the girlies hair. So cute. Later that night we popped over to the Burrahms to see the whole family. Good times. Good Thanksgiving. The next day, did a little shopping, got some good deals, and crafted with the Burrahm girls. I made the cute garland below. Dave took a good long hike with his sisters Megan and Madeline. He loves the mountains and was itching to get up there. Still looking for a new car. We hoped to get one over Thanksgiving weekend but it didn't happen. We really did have a fun Thanksgiving week.
