Christmas Day!!

We have waited, we've been counting down since Halloween, and finally the day 5:00 a.m. Landon has been sick for the past few days and so needless to say, he did not sleep well on Christmas Eve. He woke up at 4:25 and Mike and I put him in bed with us. He fell back asleep at 5:00 just as we heard little feet coming downstairs, pausing at the living room and then bursting into our room to tell us that Santa had come. (Yea, like we didn't already know that!) Here are the kids sporting their new Christmas jammies. This was Christmas for Landon. He got a Buzz Lightyear and it was over. He wanted nothing to do with opening his other 500 presents. Mike keeps reminding me that we could have done Christmas for him for $5.
Yeah! I've been waiting for this book. Thanks Mom!!!
Abbie loves sticker books....especially this one from her cousin Joseph!
Mike got this really nice Patagonia shirt from his parents. It was a great day! We desperately wish that we could have been with our families and friends. We miss you all, and hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas Decorating

So some friends of our gave us a Gingerbred Christmas tree kit, and of course the kids were really excited to decorate it, so we spent a long, painful 45 minutes putting this tree together the other night.

As you can see, Landon was a big help. He was helping to make sure there was no more candy left to decorate with.

I guess he got a little tired of eating, and decided to put his feet up for a rest.
The finished product. It looks exactly like the picture that was on the box!.....except way worse.

Wishing For Spring

Ok, so I know that it's only December 8th, but I'm done with Winter. The temperature gauge on my car this morning read -1 degree Farenheit and that was at 10:30, not like 6a.m. As I was bringing groceries in the house from the car all of my nose hairs froze and the kids desperately wanted to go sledding today, but we had to tell them no because it's just too cold. We literally can't be outside for more that 5-10 minutes before it's unbearable. The "locals" say this is unusual weather for this time of year. (I guess this stuff usually happens in February). I don't care if it's unusual or not...I'M DONE! Oh wait.....we have 3 more winters here in the North Pole. Someone help me.
