It has been such a great Christmas season this year!! I have loved every minute of it. Gavin has been so cute this year, he is now 16 months and just growing so fast. He loved so much about Christmas- mainly the lights and ornaments on the tree. He liked taking the candy canes off and walking around with them...not to mention loosing a few:) Christmas morning we had to wake him up at about 9:30 and take him to his presents. He was so excited and kept saying "OOOOO." He got a hoop shoot that is just his size, legos, cars, clothes and a few other toys. He loves playing with them. Kurt's mom had a Christmas Party on the 23rd and we played bingo, unrwap the candy bar game and had a special visit from Santa, not Gav's favorite person:) He did enjoy the story though. On Christmas Eve we had a party at my mom's, it was really fun. Alyssa turned two that night, so we made sure to have a birthday party and then a Christmas party. We made Cafe Rio Chicken Salads, they tasted just like the real thing!! We are so blessed to have such great families and to have them so close to us!

I haven't posted for quite some time, it has been a busy month!! I decided the week before Thanksgiving that I wanted to paint my living room, kitchen and dining room. This meant that I would have to paint the trim and doors too! Lets just say Kurt was less than happy with me! I did the trim all by myself, and painted most of the walls, I just needed him to do the parts by the ceiling- I am not that careful! We painted most the walls Cherry Chocolate and then some of the walls tan. I just love it!! It makes my house look a lot different, the walls were a really light tanish pink color that I did not love! So that project is now finished.

Then we moved on to putting all the Christmas lights and decorations up! Gavin has been so much fun! He loves the lights- we walk outside every night to turn them on and he just loves it. We have went on a few car rides to see the lights and he oohs and aws at all of them. He thinks the tree and ornaments are also pretty fun! He has not hurt them....yet. He takes some off and walks around with them like they are toys and he is wondering why mommy put them on a tree? I can't wait for Christmas this year- he has just grown so much and his personality is so fun. He is a good boy and so mellow. My sisters wonder why I got such a good kid:)

Here are a few pictures of our tree and the new paint! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season.

Can I just take a minute to say how much I love my husband?? For some reason I just can not keep the pantry organized and clean- not sure what it is..but I can't! When I go grocery shopping I just throw stuff in there, well about every 3 months Kurt gets mad at me and cleans the pantry out and organizes it. He goes through and takes out all the outdated stuff and arranges things so neatly! I am glad that one of us is good at that!! Love ya!
