A Merry Merry Christmas

Luke and I had a wonderful Christmas this year. This was our first year sleeping at our own house for Christmas. Then we went to Lukes family Christmas at 8am. Our favorite gift was a set of 11 DVD's that are all the homevideos that were ever taken of lukes family. They are SO funny. Then we went to Grandpa Toms for ham and rolls and then headed over to My families for more breakfast and play. We basically bounced back and forth all day between families. I am so happy we live so close to both families!! We did miss Meagans fam and Mikelles this year, It was sad not having them here, so they better make it next year!! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas's!!

Christmas= A LOT OF TREATS

So for Christmas this year I have decided to give treats as my gift to friends since the bank account has been a little too low this season. Here is what I made :

These are Chocolate-caramel covered pretzels, and half are rolled in Reeses :)

It is also my oldest brother Steve's Birthday today!35! Happy Birthday Steve! I love you! He is such a wonderful brother and has always been there for anyone and everyone. He is such a fun brother! He is the brother that always took us camping, taught me how to shoot a gun (which backfired and a fragment of the bullet went into his shoulder), how to ride a horse, and how to love being outdoors. He is really an amazing big brother!

Caroling! Fa la la la

My older brother Steve got the family together, along with some friends to go on a hay ride and sing carols to the neighborhood. It was really fun, expecially since the only songs we knew were jingle bells and we wish you a merry Christmas. (we forgot a song book...)We also roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and had hot cocoa! It was fun! Thanks Steve!

I can't believe it has been a year...

Sweet Grandma Jo Jo past away a year ago today. I miss her SO much, as I know everyone else that knew her, and all her family misses her just as much! She was the greatest grandma! All of us grandchildren LOVED to spend the night at grandmas house and wake up to her super yummy oatmeal and eggs on toast! Seriously the best ever! She was always there for every little event! And would always call and check up on us. And if we couldn't find her at home, all we had to do is go to El Charro and there she would be! haha If you want to read more about my wonderful grandma please go to my cousin Jordyns blog : We miss you Grandma!
