new toys

We had a great Christmas. Jackson got some fun new toys, including a cute elmo tree ornament.

I've been wanting a pastry blender for awhile now, I just never bought one myself. And I finally got one! I was so excited to use it, I made some pineapple muffins yesterday. These are one of my favorite muffins, I love the crushed pineapple and topping.

6 3/4 inches of snow!

We got a bunch of snow last night! I measured it in the backyard and it was 6 3/4 inches.

I put some sticker decals up in Jackson's room. Thanks Amy for getting us these!They are so fun and Jackson loves them!

Christmas Tree Hunt

It's already been a couple days since we did this, but here are the pictures. We have our tree up and mostly decorated now too. Jackson thought it was neat we were bringing the big tree in our house.

Click on the year to see the previous year's hunt: 2009 & 2008.

Here's Wyatt and Jackson waiting to start looking for trees.

I brought an old sled with us this year. I had to try it out first...

Jackson loved sledding!

We went and visited Santa the other day. Jackson has now seen him twice and knows he give candy canes. He still didn't want to sit on his lap, but he wanted the candy cane.

Whenever we see anything that looks like Santa, he says "Panta" and "nini" for candy. He also has started saying "ho ho ho". Jackson also likes the Christmas lights and Christmas trees.
