Here Comes the Sun

Two random pictures that remind me of the beauty of the sun.

A recent sunset:

Makayla coloring in the warm spot in our house...right in the sun.
I just love it!

Christmas clothes

Corbin had grown too tall for his church pants and had an ink stain on his white shirt
so I decided it was time for new church clothes.

When I showed him, Corbin said, "You said I would get a suit when I got baptized but I got it early!"
Who knew a vest would excite him so much!

He looks a little loopy in this picture. :)

Makayla couldn't be left out so she got a new dress too.
Polka dots -- her favorite!

Not the perfect picture I was hoping for but after multiple attempts, this is the best I got.
I still think they are looking pretty good.  :)

Santa Sightings

Our community had a Christmas open house we attended.  The kids were able to see Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas
Corbin asked for a Airhogs Vectron Wave.

Makayla wants a pink watch. 

That same day we saw another Santa at the grocery store.
The store offered to take their picture and call us when it was ready.
I'm still waiting for the call. :)

Last weekend we had our ward party.
The Relief Society was in charge so I was running around like crazy.
I did take time to pause to take the kids pictures.

The kids decided this Santa looked pretty real.
The beard and the glasses put him over the top. :)

Mini Cheer Camp

Makayla and her friends participated in a mini-cheer camp sponsored by the local high school.  They learned a dance set to "Holly Jolly Christmas" and they performed at the basketball game.

They got pizza and a t-shirt for participating.  Pretty fun!

It's beginning to look like Christmas...

Even though today is Thanksgiving,
it's starting to look like Christmas around here.  
After getting family pictures, Makayla convinced us to take a trip around the mall.
Even without money, that girl loves to shop.

I was surprised how many people were there.
I didn't  know people still went to the mall. :)

Tis the season!

Happy Thanksgiving!
