Papa Noel

This Santa wasn't the best I've seen. Don't get me wrong he was really nice. It's the costume I wasn't a big fan of. His beard covered his entire face. I guess when I thought of taking Kyla to see Santa, he would be more like the Santa from "Miracle on 34th street". Of course I wasn't the who needed to believe it was Santa. Kyla was really excited to see Santa and that's what's important.

Stupid Internet

I just noticed that my video from JibJab isn't working. The JibJab site is down. Hopefully they'll get it working again soon.

Lots of Laughs

So this made me laugh so I thought I'd post it. Kyla has watched it at least ten times because she thinks it's so funny. Lucky for my nephew Josh I needed a fifth head and his was the first good head shot photo I could find.

Don't send a lame Holiday eCard. Try JibJab Sendables!

Let it Snow!

This was our first real snow for the year. Kyla was pretty excited about having a snowball fight.
We even made a snowman. The hair was kyla's idea. She also wanted to make a snow toilet but I wasn't sure how to do that.
Ky played with her neighbor friends on the wood pile.
She got cold pretty quick since she doesn't have any decent snow clothes. So she came in and sat by the fire and drank hot cocoa.

Isn't the candy suppose to go on the gingerbread?

So the Saturday after Thanksgiving we went over to the Haslem's to make gingerbread houses. Brent was supposed to be helping Ky make hers, but apparently that wasn't fun enough. He and Ky thought it would be funny put the candy on Ky's face.
And then the crazieness escalated....
Brent tried to stick gummy santas on her face but they wouldn't stay.
So he opted for pull-n-peel licorice instead.
The end product, both Ky's gingerbread house and Kyla herself.
BTW - If you child has sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend doing this. Ky's face became really red and blotchy where the frosting had been.

The Day after Thanksgiving

So we spent 90% of the Thanksgiving weekend with Brent's family. We talked, laughed, and played a lot of wii. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT!
Christie decided that it was time Caden was introduced to whip cream.
Brent's sisters gave Caden a rock star make over.
We thought the mohawk was a very good look for Caden.
Just hanging with Uncle John.
We had so much fun that Kyla just zocked out in the middle of the day.


Thanksgiving at the Haslems.
My friend James from England, Christie, and Mr. No Pants (i.e. Caden).
We also celebrated Emmy's Birthday on Thanksgiving.
Caden wasn't real enthrolled with Thanksgiving.
