Dovewood Ct Christmnas Lights

After our Hayride we made a pit stop at Denny's and then headed over to see the lights. They had a new house displayed this year and it was fabulous! They had like 300 strands of light hanging from the roof to the lawn. They were all wired into a box that was playing musice. The lights lighted up in one foot sections like piano keys. Landon was so astonished that stood absolutely speechless for 15 MINUTES!

The second house was a polar bear antartic design. He thought that was pretty cool too and stayed for the longest time watching the moving polar bears. His favorite thing though was a curled up sleeping cat underneath the polar bear.

Even though it was late he did so well with being up past his bedtime. We brought the stroller with us but we didnt even use it he wanted to walk and look at all the lights.

I told him only two times while standing there that was the grinch. The next morning he kept saying grinch all day and even saw a picture out at a store and told me grinch.

There she is again being goofy and messen up our picture. She thought she was pretty cool though.

Making Memories

Watchen Santa shake it!

Gazing at Lights!

He loves reindeers.

Watchen his eyes really made it feel like Christmas and my eyes swelled up with pride. Ive waited my entire life to become a Mom for moments like this.

Annual Christmas Hayride

Here in our town of Antelope we have an annual Christmas Light hayride thrown by The Antelope Lions Club. We have been riding it 8 years now since my God-daughter was 23 months minus the rained out year. Its our tradition to ride the hayride and then look at Christmas lights on Dovewood Ct.. There are 3 horse drawn carriages embellished with lights and pulled by 2 giant Clydesdale horses. The ride is about 45 minutes and we sing Christmas Carols, apparently I am very rusty as I couldn't remember hardly any of the words.
This year we went with a few close friends. One family is a former daycare family and mine and he is already in 1st grade. It was nice to see you Josh, Jenny & Katelyn. This is Cole Landons BFF. They started loading the wagons and we weren't paying attention and we ended up being the last to board which meant we had to split up. The entire ride Landon was screaming "COOOOLLLLLLLLLLE".I had to show you Landon lil Ugg boots that have white claws on them . They are soooo cute even though its hard to see in the picture. He goes around growling at everyone while wearing them.

Our attempt at a family picture. I'm wondering if her lack of smiling is meaning that she is becoming closer to a pre-teen. Landon loves his Ky-Ky very much and looks forward to seeing his sissy once a week when she stays the night.

Even thought my mom was on call for work she snuck in on the Hayride and we begged for them to let her come with us.

Happy Holidays 2010

and shes is smiling now!

The boys did pretty good with Santa and weren't afraid at all. They hugged him, told him Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas and said Bye Santa.

Shocked aren't you?

Ok I know Ive been absent for the past 6 months but I am going to attempt to update at least once a week as I feel I am missing out so much on Landons life but not recording everything. We had family pictures taken a month ago and I am just now, today ordering Christmas cards. Crazy!! I even had to pay for rush shipping. I have four days left of work then Ihave 2 full weeks off. I am so excited I have never had this long of a vaction before and am beyong excited to see what it feels like to have a "normal" life without daycare in my home. We are having a Santa Party tomorrow and I have yet to purchase gifts for the kids so I am headed to Walmart or Kohls in a minute to pick up some toys for Santa to bring. Before I go I will leave you with our Holiday card and wish that your family feels the love of family and the peace of Christ this Holiday season.

Merry CHRISTmas!!
