As you can tell I'm excited for Christmas!

Here are all our gifts, and Santa hasn't been yet!

Brining the turkey!

Can we open it now mummy!

More fun in the snow

Saturday morning we took the boys sledding for the first time!

Last winter we didn't get enough snow to sled, and Allister was too little. Even though we barely got an inch or two, it was perfect packing snow, and slick and fast!


I have a video too, I'll try and upload it.

It was so much fun, it's been years and years since I've been sledding. I was a bit of a scaredey cat and kept digging my hand in the snow to slow us down!

We're looking forward to more fun in the snow.

Allister has asked 100 times to build a snow man!

It's fun that the boys are old enough now to enjoy it AND keep their gloves on!

Chippy our elf returned for the Christmas season.

He's not the most adventurous elf, but we love him just the same.

Here he is recovering from a fall from the ceiling fan.

Taking a ride with Batman.

And leaving a message after a particularly naughty day!
Reindeer riding!

Helping to decorate :)








Counting down!





It's almost Christmas!


Harrison's Holiday Party.

Harrison had his Pre-School Christmas party yesterday.
It was chaotic fun as usual :)
They had some wonderful goodies!
Everything here except the cookies was dairy and gluten free!
And still delish :)

They played Ice Fishing, pin the nose on the snowman and made some fun Christmassy crafts.

They also decorated these amazing rice crispy houses!

Here's Harrison's.

These parties are so much fun!

The next party will be Valentines, and the last one till Kindergarten!



This years Christmas Card.

Merry Christmas!



Snowy Days and Santa!

We had our first snow day yesterday :)
While Allister and Daddy where out Christmas shopping Mummy and Harrison had a snowball fight!
I love the first few snow days of the year, especially around Christmas time.
Then I'm done, I'd be happy if it didn't snow again haha!
Guinness LOVES snow too!

Harrison all rosy cheeks from the cold.

He's so handsome!

We're preparing for Christmas around here.
Harrison was helping me make cranberry sauce!

We ventured off to the Columbus Zoo for Wildlights and Santa.

The light show goes to music and is Columbus's version of the Bellagio ;0)

So excited for Santa!
A little apprehensive haha anyone under 3 is not too sure about the man in the white beard!
We're next!

Santa was awesome, we got there early and so he had plenty of time for a good chat and the boys told him exactly what they wanted! Transformer Dinasours!

I wonder how Santa keeps abreast of the latest toys, he seemed a little confused and was like "what dinosaurs?"

I'm site he'll get his elves to figure it out just in time!

We got to decorate cookies and have the worlds sweetest hot chocolate afterward.

The Official photo :)
We love it! And it's so natural.

We splashed out on a new tree this year, we love it!

The presents are all wrapped.

I wonder who's this little stack is?

Were all VERY excited for Christmas!
