Christmas Cupboards

This year as part of our Christmas decorations I wrapped up my cupboards to look like Christmas Presents. They turned out really cute! Any little kids (and even some adults) who saw them would just come in and stare. I know we certainly enjoyed it and are excited to do it again next year.

Notice Hannah's little face peeking into the picture. She just can't stand for a picture to be taken without her in it!

Dressing Up

It's not what you think! This time it's Jacob who is dressing up! How can you resist the cutest construction worker in the world? It's tough... and it can't be done.

I made my first turkey this year! It turned out really well and had lots of flavor. I also made mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, corn, rolls, stuffing and pecan pie. Dinner was VERY yummy, if I do say so myself. We were grateful to spend some time with each other and for some time to relax!

These two kids absolutely love each other! It has been so fun to watch their relationship grow over these past two years. Jacob doesn't lay down for his nap or bedtime without yelling out the door "Love you NaNa!" We will frequently hear Hannah's worried voice say, "But what about Jacob?" or "Where's Jacob?" Hannah loves to be Jacob's BIG SISTER and pick things up for him or help him play with toys. She, on more than one occasion, has said to us "NO! Let me do it! I need to be Jacob's good Big Sister!" Jacob is a typical boy and loves to tease and taunt his sister. She gets mad and he just keeps on pushing those buttons. They love to make each other squeal and laugh. We are so grateful for these two amazing kids that we have in our lives. Thank you Hannah and Jacob for helping us laugh! WE LOVE YOU!

Denver Zoo

Forgive me for posting these pictures backwards, but I don't feel like moving them around. We went to the Denver Zoo today and had a great time! This was Jacob's first time seeing the animals and he had lots of fun making the animals' noises and seeing them in action.

The kids were tuckered out after a LONG day!
Walking to the car.
Hannah had a great time throwing leaves in the park outside the zoo.

There were a lot of birds in the waters around the zoo.

The kids really enjoyed the hippo. He kept getting in and out of the water and swimming around. He would dive under for a few minutes and the kids would wait anxiously for him to come back up.

Hannah and the Gorilla who kept picking his nose and eating it! EWWW!

Loving the elephants!

Mommy, Jacob and Hannah ready to head out for Trick-or-Treating.
Hannah LOVES wearing makeup. Today she had a great excuse and look absolutely beautiful! I don't think she'll be allowed to wear makeup until she's at least 18 years old.
Jacob was VERY excited to wear his dragon costume again and did a great job walking around to all of the houses in our neighborhood.
Hannah and her pretty pink unicorn.

Jacob's cute wings and tail.
This was our beautiful sunset tonight. We had nice weather for Trick-or-Treating. Hannah had lots of fun handing out candy at the end of the night too.
