Christmas with the Johnsons

We spent Christmas day with the Johnson family and what fun that is - to see all the kids together and all the chaos that comes with it- wouldn't trade it for the world! I love it!!
Kayden hanging out with Grampsy and playing on his phone (of course!)
Daddy and Carter hanging out
Cousin Kyra -such a cutie!
Cousin Ellie hanging out with Carter -I think these two might be trouble together some day soon!

Christmas 2011

What a fun Christmas we had this year- the boys are at perfect ages to enjoy Christmas themselves and such fun for us to watch them and their excitement!
We had two good boys this year so Santa made a visit....

Kayden's Christmas Program

Kayden had his Christmas program at church tonight and he did such a great job! I was so worried about whether he would actually go up on stage when it was time for him to go - but he was so excited and couldn't wait and ran right up there! The anticipation of waiting....

Up on stage with his classmates singing their songs....

My mom and Jan came to spend the weekend with us and watch Kayden's program.

And they brought Kayden his Christmas present....his own golf clubs!! He was sooo excited!!

First Snow!

We got our first snow of the year- not very much but it was enough for an anxious 3 and 1/2 year old who has been begging for snow to play in! He got to go out and make snow angels - which made his day!

Carter just watched from the window where it was warm.....

Santa, Santa, Ho Ho Ho!

We took the boys to see Santa tonight and Kayden was SO excited!! He got nervous on Santa's lap when he asked him what he wanted - it was so cute!

Carter wasn't so sure about this guy....but he didn't cry! :)

Here Comes Santa Claus....

I took the boys downtown Geneva tonight for the lighting of the Christmas tree and to see Santa come into town - it was apparently a popular idea because it was packed!! We got there just in time to see them light the tree....

Then we waited in the cold for Santa's arrival...

FINALLY....Santa came riding into town on his sleigh - Kayden waved to him and said that Santa waved back to him - it was such a great moment for him!!

Decorating the tree

We decorated our tree last night and Kayden got to do his "job" of putting the star on top (with a little help from Daddy of course!)

Kayden was the perfect age this year to help put the ornaments on the tree (although it got a little bottom heavy with ornaments!)

The boys....
Our beautiful tree-  I just love Christmas time!!

Santa's little helpers....

Visit to Aunt Jodi's

Kraig had to work all weekend so I decided to take the boys to my sister's for the weekend. We took all the kids to Snapperz - a fun play place so they could wear off some energy - they all had a blast together! Carter enjoyed crawling all around....

IMG_4501 IMG_4504 IMG_4493
And Kayden and Tanner loved the bumper cars and the bungee trampoline!

Carter got a little snuggle time with Aunt Jodi too!

When we got back to my sister's house, Carter decided she needed a little help in reorganizing her cabinets...

Thanks for a fun weekend - we had a great time!
