Well a couple months ago my sister had this bright idea! She thought "I'm sick of not having a white Christmas so lets get the heck out of town and have a white Christmas" and so that's what we did. We rented a five bedroom house in Ashland and my whole family joined us! There was LOTS of snow and the girls had a ball playing and sledding all day long! here are some pictures from our trip......
Family Time! It was great having Conan's brothers family and mom over for dinner the other night. We decorated ginger bread houses, had a huge dinner "thanks babe for cooking the best Tri Tip ever" and sat around the fire and just spent time together!
This past Eve of Christmas Eve we took the girls to our church's CHRISTmas program. They both did so great and loved all the lights and the live nativity scene Carley could not stay away from the donkeys and goats. As for Conan and I we were more into the message of "finding peace" that Pastor Brett spoke about. This Christmas has been so great for many reason but i would have to say the thing that I have loved the most is hearing Cameran telling all her friends about baby Jesus and singing his songs over and over again. I feel overwhelmed with all the blessings in Conan and I's life and am so truly thankful for great friends and family to share that with.
The Pixie Chicks rocked the house! For our church talent show Cameran and a couple of her friends from our home group dressed up and sang Jingle Bells and did SOOO great. Conan and I were both betting that Cameran was going to get HUGE stage fright when she got up there but to our surprise she was a natural! The whole night was a blast everyone really enjoyed them selves! And the best part was Santa Came!!! Cameran followed him all around like a little puppy dog:) The Pixie Chicks! Our Pastor Brett (far left) and the rest of the church staff singing "Cheese"
This past week I got to spend the morning with Cameran at her preschool! Mrs. Dee Dee her teacher (who is totally awesome!) invited me to come and spend the morning with the class taking pictures and helping out for their Christmas party! Here are some of the pictures from our day together:)
Let me just start out by saying I have had nightmares about this happening and sure enough this one came true. Last night while i was editing photos in my office Cameran and Conan were watching TV all of a sudden I hear Conan say go show your mom what you did to your hair Cameran (right then I knew what had happened) and sure enough I was right. Cameran had cut a couple huge chunks of hair from the side of her head:( I know what your thinking because I was thinking the same thing "what the heck was Conan doing while she was cutting her hair right in front of him." Well I guess like most men it was REALLY hard for him to watch Cameran and the TV at the same time:) But I guess its no ones fault but hers that little stinker. Got to love being a kid. She is ALWAYS keeping me on my toes. Anyhow here is the damage. I don't know what to do with her hair now:(
Happy Day after Thanksgiving! Our little family had a small little Thanksgiving just the four of us. I think that it was one of the most relaxing days I have had in a LONG time! It was great just having the four of us and getting to enjoy our little family! Conan and I put the girls to bed around 7 and then just sat by the fire and read the adds for back Friday and quickly realized that there was nothing worth waking up at 3am for! Here are some pictures from the day!
Cameran saying her prayer before dinner!
My little hobo in her box (which is still in the kitchen) I told Conan that its her nest!
