Holiday Happenings

We've been so busy this month! I've taken a ton of new pictures and can't wait to share them with you...

A holiday tradition around our house is making gingerbread cookies...a ton of them! This year was no exception. Gabe and I made about 120 of the little buggers and mom came up to help me decorate them. I love to do it but thankfully it only happens once a year.

Here's a funny little picture of Gabe and his skateboard. He played for almost an hour in the new snow "skateboarding" down the hill.

And check out my snow removal crew...

Decorating the Christmas tree always gets me in the mood for Christmas. I imagine it would go much quicker if I didn't have my little helper but the excitement in his eyes makes the extra work all worth it. It's a little bit of Christmas magic for a 5 year old.

As you can see Gabe was bound and determined to cram that big yellow sunflower into the tree somewhere...

I'm a little bummed that this picture came out blurry but I still love it and want to share...

It wouldn't be Christmas Time without a visit from Frosty the Snowman. Frosty always surprises Gabe with a wonderful gift and every year there is a different reaction. This year all Gabe kept saying over and over was "I love Frosty". He also said, "You know what? Frosty is a girl because I saw girl hair through his eye". He doesn't miss a thing!

And finally a few pictures from Christmas. Both of the boys got new guns this Christmas handed down from their grandfathers. Tanner got one from his great grandfather Nigel and Jaron's was my dad's first rifle. Wow, what an amazing gift for them.

My little crab-cracker helping uncle Jason and grandma with Christmas Eve dinner:

And last but not least the mini-Wilson boys playing their Christmas music with cousin Kris.

Dufur grandma even played along!
