A quick peek

I'm hoping to get a little more of our Christmas pics up soon. Until  then here are a few of our December happenings. 
Levi was given his first Ice cream cone. He was very happy about it too.
Asher loved the big guy. I mean LOVED him. We don't "do" a lot of Santa in our house, but my love for him has been passed down to my second born. He is the only one who sat on Santa's lap this year. Asher spotted him at CFA one night and had to go meet him in person.
I passed on my deep love of hot chocolate to the eldest of my brood. Isaac loves any chance to drink the dream beverage. Of course, just like his mom, he understands the importance of whipped cream on top. Here he is drinking a cup from my personal fave hot cocoa in the world. South Bend Chocolate Cafe. Oh, it is like a melted chocolate bar. SOOOOOO good. As you can see Isaac agrees.

Boots with the FUR!

Today Amazon has EMU Australia boots on sale up to 70% off. This came at a good time because I was looking for a new pair. Looks like these all get reviews that they are warm. If you are more up on fashion than I it looks like these may be an off brand, but I really don't care I am just happy to get a new pair of boots for cheap.

Here is the pair I got. :) Marked down to $29.69. More than I usually spend on foot wear, but I have found a warm pair of boots to be worth a little money. They have lots that I love check it out. 
EMU Australia Women's Bronte Hi Shearling Boot,Chestnut,9 M US

EMU Australia Women's Bordeaux Boot,Chocolate,8 M US
I love these and they are marked down to $35.69 from $118.95!

Christmas Messages to Santa

So, we have a house divided when it comes to Santa. I grew up with Santa as a part of our Christmas tradition. Dan grew up with no Santa at all. So we have compromised with Santa being part of our celebration, but he is just a story. Christmas is about Jesus birthday not Santa, but I thought it would be fun recording Isaac and Asher giving a message to Santa. Levi was a little fussy so don't mind him in the background. Kind of a bummer I don't think they are getting any of the things they are talking about in these videos.  :)

Decking the halls

I love Christmas. I know, who doesn't, right. Today was a great kick off to an excellent Christmas season. 
I wish I'd have documented more of this with pictures, but here is what I've got.
December first brought our first snow.
We read the Christmas story and the boys each got an advent calendar. They were very excited to find chocolate inside. 
We also got to make some fun Christmas crafts.
Then my friend Krisha came over and helped me deep clean my kitchen. (happiness)
We had a yummy dinner and then the decorating began. 
 As soon as Daddy pulled out the tree there was excitement.
 Yay, Christmas!
 Asher ready to help.

 Checking it all out


My boys. 

Ready, set, celebrate.
