Snow day

A few days ago we finally had our first big snow storm! Allie is all about the snow angels this year so we went outside to make some...

She was very proud of her snow outfit she picked out for herself this year. So glamorous.

This was a sticky snowstorm

Getting to work

Her finished product. I'm quite impressed!

We're not yet but we're going to be!

I love you Ryan

Oh Christmas Tree...

We had a blast with Jen and the kids picking out our Christmas tree a few weeks ago.

Then we all went to dinner at the Pizzeria...

Aren't Jen and Joe so cute?

Our Tree! It's so cozy...

Happy Christmas time!

R.I.P. Sophia...

Sophia was our fish...she was a blue beta that lasted much longer than I thought she would. A whole year. She's been looking a little slow lately and not eating her food, and on Sunday night we found her at the bottom of her tank in a watery grave. I was worried Allie would be sad and got myself all prepared to say the "right" thing about how Sophia is happy in heaven now with all her fishy friends...So I brougt her over and showed her how Sophia had peacefully passed away and I was ready to answer all her questions. I said..."do you know what happens to Sophia now that she has died?"

Allie's sweet response..."Flush her."


This is the only pic I snapped of Allie taking Sophia to the bathroom (sorry about the blurry)...she happened to be playing dress up at the time. It worked out well that she was all dressed up for the funeral.

Happy December!

This is my favorite month of the year...I love the whole Christmas season and I force myself to hold off on decorations for Chistmas until December 1st. Today is the day! We are off to provo to get our Christmas tree with Jen and the kids and then to the pizzeria for dinner :) I found this slightly ghetto 1$ advent calendar at the store and Allie is loving it. Happy December!
