This is Les' new pride and joy. I have a feeling that Heidi and I are going to be without husbands on any holidays and Saturdays the boys think are 'free' for the rest of the season. And just in case you didn't notice it resides in our two car garage with my car.

The old days

Grandpa Peart with Santa. It's been almost 10 years since he passed away. I was his little Princess. I really miss him and I am glad that my aunt gave me a copy of these photos for Christmas.
Me on Santa's lap at Grandma Peart's house. I think I was almost two. It is the same Santa that has come every single year of my life. How cool is that?

Red Suit

Tonight was the annual Christmas party at Grandma Peart's house. As usual Santa came after dinner to give the little kids pajamas and have photos taken. Addi got to sit on his lap 3 different times, but Payton wouldn't sit on his lap until he gave her the present. I got a couple photos of Taylor on his lap, but Brooklyn wasn't going too close to that crazy old man in the red suit.

Welcome Baby Weston

I am an aunt again and this time it is a boy!!! My sister gave birth to a sweet baby boy on Monday at 1:37pm. He is 6 lbs 13 oz and is so very loved. We are so glad he is here and is well. I forgot my camera when I went into the hospital, so I will have to post a photo as soon as I can get over to her place to snap one or get the photos I took off my Mom's camera. Addison is so excited that Taylor is a big sister like her.
Congrats Jenny, Jon and Taylor!

Payton's Birthday

My baby is one!!! I am so very proud of her, but so sad that she is growing out of being my baby. Her birthday party was great and she got some clothes and toys. Thanks to everyone who came and made this so much fun for her.

Two Front Teeth

Payton was so sad cause I shut the drawer she was pulling dish cloths out of. Look at those two beautiful two front teeth. Just in time for Christmas.

Cutest Kids I've Ever Known

We took photos of all the kids after Jenny's baby shower on Nov 15th. They are so cute, but since they are all so little it was hard to get them all looking at once.

Gingerbread House

Addi and I decorated a small gingerbread house together on Tuesday.

Dance Program

Addison's dance class had a short parent program yesterday. They got to wear Christmas colors and have a Christmas party afterwards. Addison did such a great job. She was so very cute. I took a couple photos of her in front of our Christmas tree after we got home. Cute!!! I think this is what every mom waits for.

Christmas Shopping

Why is Christmas shopping so difficult? First of all there are those people who nobody understands and therefore nobody has any idea whatsoever what to buy them for any occasion. Second of all I hate shopping without taking Les or Addi with me, but in order to sneak out to buy the presents from 'Santa' I have to do it while Les has the girls. The most recent problem I am having is deciding what to buy Payton. What do you buy a tiny little girl who is having a birthday just over a week before Christmas and is turning one? There are only so many outfits that she needs and only so many little toys that are appealing. I am completely stumped! After doing the birthday shopping and a tiny bit of Christmas we are out of ideas. I really notice how spoiled our family is when we already have everything and there is nothing left to buy. I should be counting my blessings. Especially since the country has now officially declared a recession.
