This past weekend it finally stopped raining and with a little wild man it can be very hard not to get outside. Blake and I decided since it was pretty we would go to the park. First of all, we had not been outside all day. I knew that it was somewhat cold just from letting the dogs out, but had no idea that it was meat hanging weather! This did not matter to Bryce. As soon as we let him out of the car he hit the ground running, literally! He throughly enjoyed it, even though we were only out for about 20 minutes. It didn't phase him that it was cold until we were back in the car and he started to thaw out. We survived and Bryce was just so happy to be out of the house that it was totally worth it!

Sorry I haven't posted lately. We have been getting ready for Christmas. I have done some really great shopping this year and found such great deals! I can't wait for the big day. Anyway....We took our pictures for our family christmas card and I thought I would put up a few. First, I had to share this cute picture of Bryce playing under the tree!
Steven went to his first dance on December 5 also! He is so big and I am getting older by the second. Look how handsome he looked. Don't worry he didn't dance with any girls yet. He had a great time though!
Here's some shots for our Christmas card.

Here is my turkey. It was so good. We cleaned the bird and then added fresh rosemary and thyme under her skin. She turned out great! I have to build my serving collection!
I unfortunately came down with a stomach virus Thursday. I ate only a little of my turkey and some rolls. By the time we had to leave for Blake's family's Thanksgiving, I felt awful and did not eat a thing. It was great at my in-laws because Blake's uncle and his new wife were in town. I just love them! We hate that they live so far away! I could hang out with them all the time. Blake really favors his uncle.
Needless to say, we had a great Thanksgiving! We spent time with our families and even though I was not feeling up to par for most of the weekend it was wonderful!

I know I should have posted this sooner but Bryce and Blake have been sick. We went to Indiana 2 weeks ago and had a great time. One of my cousins got married, so we made our way north. I actually remember living there, and I love to visit. This was a very short trip and we didn't get to visit as much as I like. I did get to see my oldest friend Justin. We were neighbors growing up and I guess I have known him my whole life. I don't remember the last time I saw him but it was great getting to catch up and eat some Skyline Chili. This is Justin, me, and my little brother and sister years ago!
Saturday, we hung out by the pool at the hotel and then went to the reception. It wasn't too action packed but it is nice to see family. We don't have any family in Alabama and being in this state sometimes I would like more family. The hit of the party was my Grandma's nephew Chris. He is Santa and I have been working on Bryce to like Santa so when it is picture time he will not cry. Well, I must say that I have done a great job because Bryce went right to him and did not want to go anywhere else.

We just found out that Steven was the top popcorn seller this year in his troop. Popcorn is the scouts main fundraiser. They receive around 75% of the sales. Now that we are in boy scouts and not cub scouts, the money supports the troop AND Steven. He receives "scout bucks" that help to pay for camp and a ski trip. Steven is soooooooo excited about the ski trip. Way to go Steve-O!

This was taken on turn two. This is where the boy scouts were. This is such a big place. I cannot imagine what it looks like during a race. This was early in the day so a lot of the boys hadn't pitched their tents yet. Steven loves boy scouts. I love that he loves it because they have great values and they accept everyone.
