"Frosty the Snowman...."

We are all Christmas all the time at our household these days. Decorations are up, Santa has been visited, letters to Santa have been mailed, Christmas baking and our countdown has begun. We are getting excited for the Aggies Bowl Game in New Mexico (Just Daniel is going this year) and Christmas in Idaho. Two more weeks until Christmas, the kids could not be more excited!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble...

This was the second year in a row that we hosted Thanksgiving dinner. Mostly because in the Football World you always have to work on Thanksgiving. So alas Daniel had to work a little. I would like to do a special shout out to Daniel for pretty much doing all the Thanksgiving cooking by himself, you rock! I did all the decorating and helped watch the 9 kids that came for Thanksgiving. That's right 9 kids and 6 of them are 3 and under. Our friends BJ and Anuhea and Eldon and Jen and all their kids came up for the festivities. The kids had fun playing outside and inside literally playing with anything and everything. The boys watched some football while the girls watched a girlie movie. It was a good time so much so that everybody was completely exhausted. After our company left we went up to Wyoming for the weekend to see Daniel's family. Good times!
