Sweet Giving Spirit

If you are not from Oklahoma then you may not know how dramatic the weather media is here. They like to name all of our winter storms and have competitive commercials about it. Which in some ways is nice cause you can get up the minute weather coverage when needed. The short 17 months we lived in Kansas we were surprised at how calm their media was there. But we were expecting 2 to 4 inches { at the least} of snow and got the above picture. Mainly because the storm turned a different direction and so now it's just really really cold 25 out and wind chill of 11. SO I am glad its Christmas and we are able to stay put in our pajamas all day long!

At about 6:30 this morning we heard the little people loudly proclaiming" Santa Been Here!!"
We expected them to immediately open their gifts but instead Ryan went and got all the gifts he had made and got at school and had us open them first. He then explained what each one was for and why he had chosen them. I hadn't had my morning coffee yet but I was completely surprised by this. It really showed his giving spirit. He turned 6 this fall and is growing up in some ways more than what I realized. 

Ryan got a marble maze and loves it! He looks so serious watching them!
So far there has been 2 different designs put up. I thought I heard someone grumbling about it taking an engineer degree to put it together but I don't know cause I couldn't even figure out the Ariel pool Lily got.

 Our living room is a disaster, there is tons of laundry, lots of chores to be done I 'm sure but for now I will just sit here and watch them play and enjoy them being little this year.
                                         Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours!

just some pics..

 I haven't had a lot of time to blog since moving back to Oklahoma. It seems like life just keeps going by faster and faster every week. I am hoping to get back in the habit of reading and writing more bogs in 2013! If you know of reasonable blog designer or even how to change the blog look let me know by leaving a comment! I took the little people pictures outside for our Christmas card and well you can see how that turned out. Ryan decided that he didn't like the flash on the camera so this is what resulted of that!

So next year I am going to remember to make an appointment with a "real" photographer!
