Sledding Fun!

Last weekend we went up to our cabin with my family. We had such a blast sledding and playing in the snow. There was so much snow we had to hike into the cabin and the snow filled the entire deck up which is always a great opportunity to make snow forts on the deck. Ashlyn had fun sledding she was a little more hesitant than last year but she still went down the big hill. She got so worn out that she ended up falling asleep on the tube with Brandon. We always enjoy our fun times with my family and the cabin is such a relaxing close get-a-way! We just love the snow!

Christmas 2008

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! We had such a great time with our family and friends. Christmas was such a blast being able to have Ashlyn totally into and understand the whole Santa coming. She really didn't like Santa all that much, every time she would see him she would hide behind me or Brandon and say I dont want to sit on his lap. So Christmas Eve she started to get the idea of it when we celebrated Christmas with the Reads. We had a yummy dinner, sang Christmas carols (my favorite part but I only listen I don't sing), and opened presents. Then getting ready for bed Ashlyn helped put out some milk and cookies for Santa and thought that was really cool. So in the morning she was so excited that Santa came she saw all the presents and said, "Thank you Santa!" Then when she opened her Sleeping Beauty doll she looked at her and said, " Hi Sleeping Beauty I Ashlyn nice to meet you!" It was tons of fun. And Brooklyn of course too little to get what was going on but did really like playing with the wrapping paper and bows. Then went to the Bailey's for the traditional scones and games for the rest of the day. It is so awesome to have all family so close to spend the holidays with. Christmas always has such a special feeling to it and its so great to be reminded of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so thankful for all that He has done for me and for what an example He is to me.
