coming out of a candy coma

The holidays look, smell and taste so good. Here is a random sampling of our wintery house. Gingerbread goodness. Snow; playing in it, and coming out of it. Christmas eve pj's and Colt's new favorite toy.

merry merry christmas

I hope you all are doing well this holiday season. I know I asked several of you for addresses but alas there was so much to do and so little time, something had to give and cards it was. I was too busy making cards as gifts for others to finish the Christmas cards I started, but hey, I've got a great head start on next year!
This year has been amazing, We've witnessed miracles, my uncle shattered his heels and he is walking, my friend walked out of the hospital after breaking her neck in a car accident. We've also had sadness, my Aunt is in the ICU after having a stroke, friends have divorced. It's been an eventful year, Chris matched for a residency. Chris and I celebrated our seventh anniversary. We moved into our sixth place. We had a new addition; Colter. I have a therapist. Canyon is in kindergarten. Sheridan got bit by a dog. Life is just full of good and bad and we just have to take it all in, some of us need a little more help than others so remember to try and lighten someone's burden. A wise woman told me, "never suppress a generous thought", I've been trying to do better with that. I love my family and friends and I'm so blessed to have each and every one of you in my life. I wish you all a very merry christmas and wish you joy this new year.

yes, yes it has been two months

So much is going on. Everyone wants Martha to come to their house for Thanksgiving. Well folks, I got her! ha ha! T-day is my fave, the Cox's came to town and we were in heaven! We barely saw the kids the whole weekend (unless someone was screaming or pooping) Martha and I got to see New Moon! Uh I know some may be underage but half dressed guys dripping in the rain is my kind of fun! yum! pasty guys that sparkle not so much. i liked the movie. the food, the games, even chris was loving life with the weekend off and ry-guy in town. We even took a trip to the zoo because the weather was so gorg! Oh it was an awesome staycation for us and I'm so glad we had our wonderful visitors. Then our friends had a little incident on the way home and well I'll just say I hear Ryan looks good in orange.

Then my mom came to town and it was good. Sometimes a girl just needs her mom. We had a pretty low key time, shopping (what else), talking, crafting, she even got some playstation time in with Canyon. I was so glad to see her come and so sad to see her go.

Chris is loving work, and somehow managed to get T-day and Christmas off in the same year. Don't get me wrong he will be working 30+ hr shifts before and after C-day but we are excited to have him whenever we can.

Canyon is growing and learning and loving grade K. He is becoming more and more sarcastic, which is funny and he loves loves loves his little bro.

Sher is three. ugh. this so far has been my least favorite age, inquisitive little buggers that just wont let things go and the fits, wow! but she still is really sweet at times and always tell me she loves me, then lists all the other people she loves. The poor girls did get bit by a dog this month.

Colter has all sorts of new tricks. he rolls, he eats his toes, he eats food, he reaches. The chubber bubber is just a happy guy for me but he is pretty whiny for Chris. Kind of sucks when mom needs to get away.

That is a quick recap of things past and now I need to overload this thing with pictures, can someone please teach me how to do those 4square ones. Halloween happened too, yes I know it has been forever, and we got our Christmas tree last night, and now my house smells wonderful and piny. mmm.
