Happy Anniversary?

Well, Matt and I celebrated our 11th year anniversary but it wasn't much of a celebration. I spent the whole day puking or sleeping. Being sick is so not fun, especially when you wanted to go out and celebrate.  I wanted to post some wonderful things about my husband, but for now I'll just let you watch this video that Matt made for me a few years ago. If you haven't seen it before, or even if you have, you should take a minute to watch it. It's sooooooo romantic! Just click here.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

This was the 1st year we stayed in Spokane for Christmas since we moved here. Since we couldn't be with all of our family, we wanted to make it fun and memorable and maybe start some new traditions. We decided to get together with the Buers on Christmas Eve and have a fondue party. It was fun and plenty of food for everyone. We made a cheese sauce and a chocolate sauce. 

Afterwards the Buers joined us in a little Christmas program. Reagan played us a couple of Christmas songs on the piano, Kelsey sang Jingle Bells, and Matt sang and played his guitar. Then we all sang some songs together. 

After the Buers left, the girls got to open up their traditional one present before getting ready for bed. Brand new pajamas! Reagan and Kelsey also got new robes this year. Gwyn loved her Yo Gabba Gabba  pj's, Kelsey loved her Hannah Montana pj's and Reagan loved her pj's as well. 

Here's some pictures of Christmas morning. It's always just as fun for the parents as is for the kids. 

And here's some pictures of the kids playing with some of their new presents. Even Maya was playing with her new toy. It was a pretty relaxing day after that. 


Snow fun

Here's a few pictures of all the girls playing in the snow.
