Decorating the Tree

My husband got home from NM last weekend and decided it was time to get out the Christmas tree.  It wasn't the first thing I wanted to do when he got home (I was hoping for a shower and a break) but I knew he was right and the girls loved it.  We only did the top of the tree instead of the full 6 foot tall tree.  We only have so much time and Doug had to leave for his meeting.  I love this picture of Doug and the girls.  I'm grateful for my husband for pushing me to do things even when I don't feel like it.

Random Pictures

I was downloading the pictures on my camera and came across these pictures that Doug took.  He is such a good Dad.  Our girls love him to death.  I love the pictures of Brynn feeding Chloe.  Of course Doug has them on top of the table doing it...the most dangerous place. hehe  Then the girls watching their morning cartoons...followed by a picture of Brynn and Leesee's "beautiful castles" made with blocks and books.  My girls are such good friends.  I hope they stay that way!

Some of the many reasons I love Doug...he doesn't worry about the small stuff and is always involving our girls in what he is doing. I wish I were as good at that as he is.  I love the way he loves our girls and the time he spends with them. 

 11.22.08 how long are you going to let this happen 

11.22.08 Brynn has a lot of concentration

11.22.08 Are you serious Dad...where is mom 11.23.08 Brynn and Alise in the morning watching hurts to smile

12.6.08 Chloe, Brynn and Alise I love the foot kicking Alise in the face.  Too funny! 

12.6.08 the girls feeding This is Doug's idea of feeding Chloe a bottle.  lol  The girls love to do it but I don't know how much Chloe actually gets in her belly.  I started to wean her last weekend.  I've decided I would like my body back and my hormones to go back to normal.  Under our current living circumstances I think this is best for all involved.  lol  I nursed Brynn for 6 months, Alise for 9 and Chloe 8 months.  It's as good as you're going to get Chloe.  :)

Thanksgiving 2008

This year we stayed in Snowflake and had dinner at my mom's. Everybody but Valee and Dustin (they live in TX and should be here for Christmas yay!) were there. It was yummy food and we enjoyed seeing everybody. We always have many things to be grateful for...especially this time of year. I'm grateful to my Heavenly Father that has blessed me with so much...I try to live worthy of everything He has blessed me with. Happy Holidays!
