School Holiday Program

WARNING: these pictures are way blurry.... don't worry!! It's not your eyes...
although you might have to squint to make out the pictures ;)
Today was the Elementary Holiday program...
My little birdies sung their little hearts out...
and beamed with smiles as they looked into the audience
I love the twinkle in their eyes and tiny little waves...
so much... I couldn't get a proper picture
not to mention I forgot my camera... (thank goodness for camera phones)
and then there was the mobs of parents trying to get pictures of their own kids
All in all, it was a really cute and fun program
Ho ho ho!! Merry Christmas!

Tis the Season

I have the Coolest friend in the world!!
Erin Cool invited me and the kiddies over for some Holiday Fun
The kids decorated gingerbread houses
Here are her boys... Decorating Mouth instead of House ;)
These two were working ever so carefully
I started getting sick with all the frosting that kept getting in my mouth...
How did that happen?? hahaha how else do you erase mistakes
when decorating gingerbread houses??
Following the gingerbread houses...
She provided the cutest ornament kits to make these darling snowmans
The kids had so much fun!!
A thousand Thanks to my Amazing friend!!!
I heart your face!

*the next day, after the frosting had hardened, and we took our little gingerbread house home, Kelson, the Turkey, punched right through it!!
Grrrr... Little Boys and their need to destroy creations!!!!!
Better luck next year

Flashback to Turkey Soup Night

Once again... it's Turkey Soup Night 2011
We gather on the Lund side, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving,
where Grandma Connie makes her famous Turkey soup
using the leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving...
This soup is so delicious!! And there are a ton of different ways
of how everyone eats their soup..
With or without crackers
homemade rolls with Cheese sauce or butter
HOT sauce... Tabacco sauce or Tapatio
and Ketchup... yup! Ketchup
Grandma adds something new each year...
This year she added squash! YUM!!!
I don't think the kids even knew... it was sooooo good
Mmmmmmmmmm my mouth is watering!!
Since we are gathered on this night with our family, I asked if we could celebrate Kelson's birthday since it's only a week away (from this point)
(we did this last year too... I think it might be a trend?? What do you say Fam??)
Grandma Connie's quilt that she has made for each of her 10 grandchildren...
has fabric from Grandma Pearl, Grandma Lindsey, and Grandma Connie's own wardrobe
G-ma Connie asked if I remembered where the green floral fabric is from...
I said, "didn't you wear this dress to a wedding?"
She said, "yes... your wedding"
Even though I am no longer married... 3 beautiful children came from our marriage
and it's the best thing that could have ever happened for us :)
below you can see Grandma Connie stitching the final stitches in her quilt she made for Kelson
Time to blow out the candles
Happy Birthday (a week early) to our Kelson!!

I love my Family
