Tree Trimmin'....Santa.....and MORE

I get emails from Disney whenever there is anything new coming to town, well I got this email saying you could personalize a message to your kids from Santa, you can even upload a picture of them. It is really cute and my kids loved it. HERE is Mckay's message from Santa, and you can make one for your kids from that link too :)

Also, there is this really cool thing called "Bloggled" that will back up your blog for free. They also will be able to make books from your blog in the near future. It gives me piece of mind that I can back all this up, cause this really is like a journal for our family. So, check it out....HERE is the website.


Ok, on with stuff that has been happening with us :) We got our tree up finally! The kids were SO excited. Mckay has been bugging us for days about getting it up. Our house is a complete disaster and we can't find anything, but at least the tree is up right :P

The first ornament...of course if Mckay put it on it had to be green :)

When Ky put the ornaments on they were pretty much right on top of each other. And, I am SO proud of myself....I actually left them like that :)

Our little Ornament hog....

I look at this picture of her and she looks so big to me! The time goes so fast, I can't belive she is gonna be two soon!

Shortie needs a little help from daddy.

Not traditional Christmas colors for our ornaments, I know, but I like that they are bright and fun. Maybe in a couple years I will go with red or something.

Ok, I know this is the longest post ever, but there is MORE! Yesterday we drove down and took the kids to Christmas Villiage In Ogden. Mckay has been so excited to see Santa he couldn't wait another day. Too bad it was SOOOO cold that before Ky even saw santa she was crying. Here are some pictures....Thank goodness for the Hot cocoa!

I know this is the worst picture ever of me...I was half frozen. I just think the kids look so funny so I had to share.
Waiting patiently for santa...we couldn't find Ky's coat so thankfully we found Mckay's old one.

Finally....SANTA! I think it is adorable that Mckay is holding his hand. He went right up and just sat on his lap and said, "I want a yellow Cars digger truck for Christmas please." Kylin, on the other hand was a little more cautious.

After Santa, we only went to a few little houses before the kids were too cold. But, it was a lot of fun! I love that my kids love Santa and are so excited for Christmas, it makes it so much fun!

Thanks for passing the infor along about backing blogs up! Since I too use our blog as a journal, I worry about it somehow deleting! Your kids really are so cute! It looks like things are starting to settle down with the move and it sounds like you have had sick kids (so have I and it is NOT fun!) Your tree is super cute!!

Cute pics. I must say-I know that santa. How do I know santa? Well-ever since I was little that particular Santa has been coming to my granma's house and now my moms house every christmas eve. I refer to him as my Santa-he is fantastic and I just love him. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he has known me my whole life and now he knows my kids. It is such an awesome thing. NOt many people can say they have a santa and really mean it! Yea-I am that cool! :)
