Ever since I can remember, my mom has made Christmas candy some time during the month of December. She would make enough to take around to our neighbors, friends, and family. As kids, it was our job to decorate the sugar cookies and we always looked forward to it. As I got older, I actually got to help my mom in the candy making process. We would pick one day and spend most of it baking while we listened to Christmas music. It's a tradition that I have always loved. The first year we were married, I went to Powell (we only lived in Lovell) and helped her. The next year, I had just had Carson and she was staying with us, so she was there to help me. Last year, was the first year that I didn't make the candy. This year, I decided I was going to do it by myself and hope for the best! You would think that after as many years as I had helped/watched my mom I could just do it, but no. I had to call my mom when I was making just about each of them and ask her a question. But, they turned out great! I started Monday and we packaged them up last night and delivered them. We made 9 plates and even had some to have at home to snack on. I'm so glad for my mom making this a tradition in our family and for her always letting me participate some way when I was younger. It's one I hope to carry on!

One of Carson's favorite things to play with at his Gramma Asay's house is a hand made set of corrals. He loves setting them up and filling it full of as many animals as he can or filling it with himself. So...Christian decided he was going to make a set for Carson for Christmas this year. They turned out really good and I think he will be really excited.Working away...

I saw the link to this site on my cousin's blog. It's pretty fun. You upload pictures of yourself and can even make the elves do a dance! I though it was pretty hilarious!

We finally got our tree up...yeah! Christian, Carson and I put it up last night and started to decorate it. I got was stringing the lights and found that I was 2 strands too short, so I had to run and get more lights today. Carson and I couldn't wait until we were totally done with the lights to decorate, so we decorated the tree anyways last night (plus I knew I was going to be doing a little rearranging of the ornaments due to my good little helper :))! Carson was so excited about putting it up this year. He kept telling me the the tree was awesome and the lights were beautiful. His favorite ornaments are the silver tractors Christian gave me for my birthday the first year we were married and a snow globe that plays music. He loves to turn it on and listen to the music. It's going to be such a fun Christmas with him this year...I can hardly wait!

Well, we are back from our trip to Wyoming. We left Tuesday afternoon to head home for Thanksgiving. We spent Tuesday night at Matthew and Charlene's house. It's always fun to go out to dinner with them and Michael and Emily and visit with everyone. Wednesday morning, Matthew got up and went to feed the animals at the State Vet Lab and took Carson and Christian with him. Carson had been so excited to see the sheep and buffalo, but when he actually got to see them, he was kind of freaked out. After they returned and we ate a yummy breakfast, everyone took off for home.
Wednesday night and Thursday night we spent with Christian's family. Our Thanksgiving day was great. We started out at Mildred's (Christian's grandma) house for lunch, then ran to Jan's dad's for pie, and then to my families house for dinner. We ate way TOO much, but everything was too good not to!
putting out the vibe!
Saturday night, we decided to celebrate Carson's birthday with the family. He will be 3 on Friday, but I thought it would be fun to have a party with all the family there. We had pizza and pop for dinner and cake and cheese cake for dessert. When I would ask Carson what he wanted for his birthday, all he would ever say is a tractor cake. Since I made him one last year, I found some cute farm candles and used those instead. He had a great b-day and was truely spoiled!
