White Christmas

This year we had a White Christmas. The snow started yesterday and it still has not stopped! There is so much snow that Mike's boss canceled all Tows!!! I'd say there is up to 5 feet of drifts! It's been nice though, we actually got to see Mike all day long, Merry Christmas to us :)
Santa stayed up to 2:30 putting this kitchen together. Good thing 'cause the girls LOVE it!
Mike gets George Straight CD
I got new work clothes
Shoes, Braclets and rings, oh my!

Christmas Cuties

Grandma bought these beautiful Christmas dress! The girls loved them and pretended they were princesses

My Favorite!! What sweet sisters

I love a man in uniform

Mike's new job, Towing, has him out in the snow ALOT! So he suits up to stay warm....isn't he so cute!!!!


At the end of November I was feeling all sad and missing my family in California. I had called my sister Melissa, and told her that I missed her. (This is very rare for me :) But it was the end of the month and she couldn't talk becasue they are always swamped at work at that time. I forgot all about that day when a couple of weeks later I was in the basement with the kids and I got a call from my mom. She told me to come upstairs and open the door. There was my sister and her two boys!!!! Well I was so suprised! I cried!!! My dad and she had been planning this for a while and here she was in Nebraska!!!
We took this picture from my phone and sent it to Mike becasue he was at work. Then I called him, and he was all confussed he was like is this Brenda or Melissa, how did Melissa get my stocking??? (we look alike and sound identical!)

The boys loved the snow and EJ didn't want to get out.

Goooooooooooo Huskers!!!

EJ's birthday is in December so we had a mini party at my parents

Snow Daze

Monday night we got a call from Lincoln Public School that school would be closed due to the weather. So Tuesday all the kids I watch after school were here all day long as it snowed outside. It snowed and snowed and snowed! By Wednesday morning the snow was so bad that no one went to work....except Mike. He's been working like crazy...yay!!! The kids were still off school today due to the snow drifts and the temperature. It's been interesting trying to keep everyone busy, but it's been fun too.

Here's what the girls and I did on Wednesday. We made a gingerbread tree. It took 2hrs!!! I was exhausted afterward and we all had a nice long nap :)

The girls and the tree...after a few samples of the frosting :)
