So on the weekend we went to celebrate our nephew's 4th birthday! He is two pictures below. Very excited boy he was. The first picture is his little brother and Ali. He is 6 wks younger. Can you tell? LOL. He is a big boy. I love his expression here!

The finished product!
I believe we are close to being done Christmas shopping. I still want to bake. I will try to do some tomorrow. Sugar cookies, caramel square, butter tarts, shortbread cookies are a few of the things I would like to make. I am super excited for Christmas this year because Tanner is actually into it this year and can learn what it's all about. I have nothing against Santa and I will implement that part of Christmas into our traditions BUT it will not totally take over my house and my children. I want them to know the true meaning of Christmas. The birth of Jesus Christ. I am trying/learning how/where to find our happy medium. We do not go to church, I have nothing against it, it's just something I have not done for years. I think I would like our kids to participate in Sunday School. I don't know when or where but sometime in the near future. Also the other thing that is super exciting this year is that my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and their girls will be out from Alberta this year!!! Very pumped to them.
Anyways, there are some of my ramblings for today!
Have a great night!
