Thanks grandma!

This is mostly for my mom. She gave the boys pj's for Christmas but I needed to iron on their names so she didn't get to see the final product. I asked each boy what they wanted for their names (Bubba vs. Micah). I had enough letters to put names on the back.

I also had enough letters to put the work "princess" on Rebekah's pajamas.

This is Isabella. Micah helped her name it. I love it cuz' it is the same size as Bekah :)

And of course I had to put a pic of Anah just because she is cute. AND GETTING SO BIG!

Abbotts in Kansas

My parents were able to come out and see our new house over the holiday. It was too short (it always is) and they had to leave the day before Christmas. This actually ended up being a blessing because of the weather but at the time I was thinking of letting the air out of their tires to keep them here an extra day :)

This year we put up an artificial tree. I guess I've been spoiled with beautiful, perfectly shaped, Colorado Christmas trees. At least it was a nice, full artificial tree.

I love my mom! Last time we took a picture of us, I was pregnant with Rebekah at a Mother/Daughter banquet. Mom didn't like the picture but I think we look great!

Gingerbread Train

The kids and I built our first gingerbread project last year. It was a cute little house that we built just like the box said.

This year the kids picked out the gingerbread train. I skipped all the icing and hot glued the train together which was a tremendous help.

By the time I thought to take a picture of the finished project, 
I had already eaten almost all of the candy :)

Family Time

We have greatly enjoyed our family time during Christmas Vacation. There were quite a few days where we were supposed to get certain things done but in the holiday spirit, we ended up doing plenty of fun activities.

Family movie time: The first time watching, "How The Grinch Stole Christmas"

Kansas' first snow fall didn't occur until almost half-way through Dec. and then it wasn't very much.
