Gingerbread Train

On January 10, we finally had time to do our gingerbread train that we bought a week before Christmas.  We had so much fun when we finally did get to decorate it. 

Lots of frosting + big mess=one happy boy
What more can a mama ask for except for one happy boy!!!!!


These pictures are from a few weeks ago.  I just got them loaded onto my computer.
It was back when we were having the really nice weather.  It was so nice that we played with Matthew's new bubble maker and wrote all over the cement in front of our garage with chalk.  Matthew has really been into writing and drawing lately.

Here are a few pictures of his bubble machine:

 He even played in his sand box and told me that I couldn't take any more pictures (so I told him that I was taking pictures of the trees.  Hehehe!)

We finally got back outside yesterday but I didn't take any pictures.
We had lots of fun digging in the snow with his sand shovels and putting and moving it in his wheelbarrow.  He was trying to have us find Bugs Bunny!

Since the weather has been so nice, we have been outside playing a bit the last few days!  I am loving the sunshine!  I love taking pictures outside! I especially love when Matthew lets me take his pictures!  Usually there is bribery!  Sometimes I just tell him I going to take pictures of the trees!  Sometimes he actually wants me to take his pictures!
 This next one is my favorite!!

 Then he was done!
 Ok he'll fake it for one more!
He was also getting cold!
When we went in, I told him thank you for letting me take some pictures of him today.
He said, "You're welcome Mama!"
Made my heart melt!
He has been so sweet lately!

Playing Outside

It's January!
It is beautiful outside!
This can't be Minnesota in January!
But it is!
We are loving it!
We played outside for a long time!

When we first went out, he didn't want me to take any pictures!
But I did anyway!
I thanked him when we went in for letting me take his picture and he said, "You're welcome Mama!
This new year is starting out great compared to how last year ended.
Matthew got his stitches out on the 2nd of January and his head is looking really good.

Couple more Christmas Pictures

Here are a couple more Christmas pictures:
Christmas was so much fun this year!  Matthew got so excited over all the things he got!
He was a little disappointed that Santa forgot a dinosaur!
He did get a microphone and loves to sing into and play this guitar.
Scott starts songs on You Tube and Matthew plays and sings along.
 He got lots of other things from Santa but in all the pictures he is either turned away or not interested in looking at me for a picture. 
We love reading Llama Llama books!
 This one was the first to come out of the box!
We had an awesome time this Christmas!
Hopefully next year Santa will remember to bring a dinosaur!

One Christmas celebration

We had lots of Christmas celebrations this year.  Some of them I took pictures of and some of them I didn't.

Here is a couple pictures of Matthew with a few of his favorites:

He got so many gifts that I can't even list them all.
We did go to see Alvin and The Chipmunks Chipwrecked yesterday and the movie theater.  He loved it but was scared in a couple spots.  I thought it was a really cute show.

Christmas Tree

Here is a partical picture of our Christmas tree:
Most of the ornaments are homemade by either my great grandma or my sister and the others are little picture frames.  We also have name ornaments and a ornament with a picture of our church on it.
PS Since we have decorated for awhile, we were so excited to start decorating for holidays that our Halloween decor was still hanging in the window.  Our angel sat in the window without be lite up because we could find her plug in.
