I didn't blog about New years because I wanted to wait until I got the pictures from it onto the computer.....I didn't think it would take this long!!! New Years eve didn't turn out at all how we planned it! We decided to stay home this year since we have the paper route and had to wake up really early the next morning. So we invited our best friends over (George, Rhiannon, and Madeleine) for some yummy food and games and we would watch the other New Years festivities on the tv. I did a little decorating and got the food ready, even displayed it nicely as you can see in the next couple pics. But.......neither Jon or I got to take a nap before hand since we had been up since 3:00 am that morning so after eating pizza and salad and watching part of a movie we both ended up falling asleep, along with Kambria and Eli. Needless to say, Rhiannon woke me up around 12:30 before they were about to leave. I felt soooooo bad!!!!! Luckily they are such awesome friends and they were planning on having a relaxing new years anyway that they said they didn't mind and that they understood why we were party poopers and fell asleep. Sorry again guys! :) I woke Jon up so we could go to bed, but before we did we decided to at least have a new years toast(with cranberry-apple juice) and a new years kiss. Happy New Year to a "gettn' older, paper routn', tired couple" eh!
~bad self portrait!!!
Also before we could get to bed, Eli woke up and decided to join our little festivities.
The next couple pictures are of Kambria New Years morning celebrating in her own way since she just slept all night.
Eli Loves To Climb!
He was all the way up on the ledge of the refrigerator at one point, but I couldn't grab my camera fast enough to catch it.
Here is Jon shoveling off our roof and breaking our ice dams as he had been doing everyday for the week or two before on tons of other houses!

First our dryer broke down......then our van......and now we are having problems with Jon's truck! At least the truck is still running, especially since we have the paper route, but I won't have a vehicle until we get our income tax return back in February and hopefully it will be a good one or I don't know what we will do!

I had macaroni noodles cooking for Kambria and my niece Audriana. I figured while I was waiting for the noodles to get soft I would check a couple blogs. I first quickly checked my email and then got onto Blogspot. My cousin Misty had just posted pics of cute Jovie so I had to check them out! Right after I got done looking at them I was going to look at another blog.....when the smoke detectors went off! I FORGOT ABOUT THE MAC AND CHEESE AND THE KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM WERE FILLED WITH SMOKE! All I could say was......"HOLY CRAP!!!!!" The girls thought it was pretty funny! I had to start another box of mac and cheese......hopefully I won't burn this one too! LOL!

After going to Walla Walla the weekend after Thanksgiving and seeing how much Eli loved my cousin's son's big Tonka dump truck, he then knew what to have one of his elves make him! He was also very excited as you can see in the next few pics!
Mommy helping Eli open his first stocking.
Kambria digging into her stocking......which was overflowing!Kambria has been wanting a pink dog for a very long time and finally got one in her stocking!
Into everything!!! There was so much stuff on the coffee table...including Grandma and Grandpa's coffee, he just wanted to get his little hands on it all!
Sittn' in his dump truck
When Kaden got there he had fun pushing Eli around!
Kambria and Kaden both got their first watches from Grandma and Grandpa. Kaden's a "Cars" watch and Kambria a Hannah Montana watch
Kambria was sooooo excited to get her Hannah Montana watch that she literally begged for when seeing it in the store a few weeks ago!
Daddy and Eli zonked out while we finished opening presents. We tried to keep Jon awake, but proved to be impossible.
Uncle Brandon trying to figure out Kaden's Spiderman Transformer that Kambria got him.
This barn with all the animals and the tractor and farmer was a big hit! It was a great find that my mom got at Other Mother's! Great store!!!
Eli loved this John Deer Tractor set he got too!!!!
This is the John Deer Tractor blanket I made Eli! So soft and cozy!!!
Christmas evening went over to Jon's mom's house for presents and dinner.
Kambria got this Monkey from her Auntie Rose and cousin Audrianna. She has sooooo many stuffies, but she loves each and every one of them and gets so excited every time she gets a new one!
I don't have a picture of it, but her Grandma Watson got her a Hannah Montana radio with headphones that plays 3 or 4 of Hannah's songs. She absolutely loves it and plays with it all the time at home! Believe me......I don't know how many times I have now heard the parts of the songs that are on it!
This is the blanked I made for Rosalyn, I wish I would have made another one for myself too! Double fleece blankets are the best!!!!!
