Our Tree... after 4 different sets of lights put on, taken off, returned.  Finally these ones worked and looked right!  Shopping done, presents wrapped, tree up.  Yep, sorry we don't play santa clause over here... I hope our kids don't ruin it for others :)  We will see how long we can last without opening presents.  Grant and the kids have been asking for a couple of weeks now!

Tyra with her new furry sparkly headband from grandma debba ready to go to daddy's basketball game!
She likes to do the fish lips lately!

Christmas Cookies

I loaded these out of order.  Here's the end result.  Yep I told them not to use too much frosting or sprinkles othewise they wont taste good. But what fun is that?  So they decorated them however they wanted.
Doing the decorating
Doing the baking AKA. Eating the dough (Gannon) :)  That is why I bake too... to eat the dough!

First Party of the Season

Great Grandpa Kakie De Jager side Christmas.  All the great grandkids get a gift from Kakie... this year all the boys got new nerf guns that shoot little green disks.  They all had such a great time playing with ALL of their cousins!
Tyra got a stroller and a doll.  She ripped the doll out of the box by her hair and tossed her on the floor.  She then went and found a football to put in her stroller, she pushed it around for 5 mins then only played with the buckle of the stroller. hhmmmmm... I wonder where she gets that from?  She has never seen anyone else play with a doll coming from a household of all  brothers!

Warm beach lights of Christmas not so warm...

Bruce the spruce (the talking Christmas tree)  Lots of TREEmendous jokes he has!
Auntie Shawna and Tyra.  Tyra was a trooper... IT WAS FREEZING... and she didn't take a nap that day.  She must have liked all the lights because she was happy  in the stroller the whole time!  None of the kids fell asleep on the way home either, including her.  I don't know what it is, but the kids got my sleeping genes... they don't need much of it!

Grandpa Rick and Grandma Deba met us there too.  They found us right before boarding the train!

Giant snowman

The night of the lighted Christmas parade we headed down to the Lights of Christmas at warm beach with the Bosmans.  I had heard so much about it we decided to go see it.

Way in the back ground of this picture you can see an awesome mountain with the moon all made out of lights.
I think everyone enjoyed the lights of christmas... besides it being really cold it was a fun time.  Each of you also got to ride a horse, except for Tyra!  Up next... CHRISTMAS PROGRAMS and PARTIES!


This Picture I quick snapped of Tyra before we had our FREE PHOTO SHOOT with Donnet Studio.  The contest that Tyra and Ozzie won!  Tyra let me curl all of her hair... but she didn't cooperate quite as well for the photographer, she wanted me to hold her the whole time.  A few of the pictures turned out in the end.  I will post them soon once everyone gets my christmas cards!

She already had her bath for the night... so I got her dressed in her pajamas and I let Gunnar get in the bath... as I am cooking dinner Gunnar starts yelling "Tyra is in the bath!!!"  this is what I found.  She acted like, what's the big deal? I'm just in the bath.

Thanksgiving... We went to my mom and dad's the weekend before thanksgiving, and to Glen and Alice's on thanksgiving.  What we are thankful for...
Our Health
Our kid's health
work, and my husband who works hard every day for us
christian school... the freedom for our kids to learn and talk about God there
Our Friends!
