The past couple of weeks have been super busy for us with all our holiday happenings! One of the highlights was playgroup last week. We made gingerbread houses out of graham crackers. They turned out super cute and I think I had more fun making them than Carson did!

The first weekend in December is Christmas kick-off weekend in McCook. There are so many fun things to do to start the Christmas holiday...Santa flies into the airport and then is found at Santa's workshop all day, there are lots of craft shows, a free movie matinee, and the lighted parade downtown. Christian had to work Saturday, so the boys and I decided to take advantage of all the fun things going on. We started the day with making Carson his birthday breakfast...pancakes in the shape of gingerbread men and sausage (one of his favorites). After breakfast, we got ready and headed to see Santa at Wal-Mart. After that we ran to the free movie and saw Monster's in the Attic. After the movie, we ran to the craft shows (which are nothing like the ones in Powell and Cody), then came home for naps. After naps, it was time to head down town to watch the parade. We went down a little early so that we could go see Santa at his workshop. Carson is so into Christmas this year and it has already been lots of fun! Travis, on the other hand...is deathly afraid of Santa (as you will see in the pictures). It was a fun day and a good way to celebrate Carson's actual birthday!
Waiting for the parade to start
We got our tree decorated earlier this week. The boys both helped put the ornaments on. I thought for sure that Travis was going to be the one that would bother the ornaments, but it's Carson that I have to worry about. He rearranges them daily!! Both of my boys love it. Travis kept saying "wow" and Carson kept telling, and continues to tell me daily, that it's the most beautiful! He kept hugging the tree the first night it was up...too cute!!

Yesterday was Carson's 4th birthday! Carson is one of the most loving/caring little guys I have ever met. He loves little kids, has a great imagination, is very sensitive, has the best smile in the world, and has a great little personality...he loves to tease! We are truely blessed to have him as part of our family! As I tell him every night when I tuck him into bed, He is truely my favorite Carson in the whole world!!

As for our family, we have all been rather healthy. Carson had a short bout with a cold last week but was over it quickly. He continues to grow like CRAZY! I have people all the time tell me how much he is growing! He has become quite the little singer recently! Carson participated in his first primary program this Sunday and did great. He acutally sang some of the songs and did good on his parts. He had them all memorized and could say them on his own, but when it came down to it, he had to have some help!
Travis is continuing to grow too! He is starting to say some words and it's so fun! He now says mom, dad, ball, bye bye, NO (lots of no!), thank you and nose. I love when they start to talk! Travvy now has 11 teeth...and we're so glad that his molars are finally all the way in...!
Christian is busy soil sampling as much of the ground that is available to. This year has been a really unusual one in that the farmers have not been able to get the corn picked because of their high moisture levels. He's also working on getting all of his contracts signed for next year.
I've been busy keeping up with everyone. I've been doing some craft projects that I've been wanting to do. I'm looking forward to the upcoming holidays, seeing family, and Daniel and Kasi's wedding. We are headed home this week for Thanksgiving and for the wedding. We hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving and that you all travel safely!
