Uncle of the Year?

Ryan got an electric bug zapper for Christmas. He bet our nephew Michael $3.00 to stick his tongue to it!!!! As you can see from the picture HE DID IT!!!! Ryan is NOT going to win Uncle of the Year!


 

Christmas with Uncle Mike

Ryan's Uncle Mike was able to join us for   Christmas this year. We talk to him on the phone all the time but have not seen him in 13 years. We were all excited!
It was the first time for him to meet Lilly and Logan.

Tigershark Ugly Sweater Party

Trent's swim team had a ugly sweater Christmas party and Trent won!!!

Logan's Kindergarten Christmas Party

Logan is in Kindergarten this year. I was the room mom for his Christmas party. Logan loves Christmas and his school planned several fun activities for the week before school was out. This is a picture of Logan on Polar Express Day in his pajamas.
I decided to do a minimal plate of food for the kids because they are so excited they never eat the food. 
I picked cute plates and napkins and had cute cupcakes made and each kiddo got a juice box.

My cute Santa
The kids exchanged gifts and played a game.
I focused on a great treat bag. I ordered cute bags and each kiddo got a container of powder to make snow, an elf ornament , 4 gingerbread cookies, and reindeer food. I also ordered the book "Santa Duck" for Logan to give to each of his classmates.

Logan and Gabbie

Calvin and Brock

I think the kids had a good time at their party and I enjoyed planning the party.

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

Kell Christmas

We celebrated with my mom's side of the family in early December. We had several family members who couldn't make it this year but we still had a great turn out and a lot of fun.

My cousin Chad's daughter, Karli, let Logan ride her horse. Karli is active in her high school rodeo program and came to Christmas from a rodeo which is why she had her horse with her.
Logan loved riding the horse and asked Santa for a horse for Christmas. I explained that Santa knew we didn't have a place to keep a horse but Karli would love for him to come ride anytime.

We had a great time visiting and eating.
