Kapri got snow pants for Christmas. Purple ones. Cause she LOVES purple. Just ask her.

Now, we have one of the greatest hills for sledding right behind our house, BUT what we don't have is an 8 year old kid, named Cadence, that is willing to play in the snow with her. Therefore, we packed up all the snow gear and headed to my sister Jalynn's house.

After going down the hill a few times, the sled tipped on the way down. Kapri FACE PLANTED it, right into the snow. If you could even call it snow. It was pretty hard and crunchy.. imagine your face sliding across it. Now imagine it happening TWICE. She was done after the second time.

We went in, had hot cocoa and called it a day.

I, of course, forgot to bring my camera, pregnant brain and all, so you get to look at these wonderful, blurry, grainy ones from my phone. You're welcome.

Another year gone...

I saw this idea on another blog. And guess what, I'm-a-gonna steal it.

So long Two Thousand and Ten...













Can't wait to see whats in store for us this year.. bring on Two Thousand and Eleven!!!



We hung out at my sister Jalynn's for New Year's Eve. Had a few friends over.. ate a TON of food.. and rang in the new Year. I didn't even think to get out the camera until we were bundling up to go outside at 11:59. I managed to get a few pictures.. mostly of Kapri's confused face. She was wondering what on EARTH we were doing outside, at midnight, in the freezing cold, running around like idiots, banging pots and pans and lighting sparklers. She was just happy to be awake that late.

You want me to do WHAT??!!

He left nothing but crumbs...

Oh, and a bunch of P.R.E.S.E.N.T.S!!!

Thats right. Santa came to OUR house. Cause we've all been so good. I hope he came to your house too.

He brought Kapri a Tangled 4-wheeler... She's been envying her cousin Addison's Dora 4-wheeler for months. Now she's got her very own!!

I think she likes it...

(Please take notice of the bow. Its a masterpiece. Santa must've forgotten to buy one, so he had to come up with something last minute. Thats my guess.)

Kapri pretty much ran our morning. She opened most of the presents, including mine and Cody's. Once in a while she'd let us help a little. Sweet, right?? This year was SO MUCH FUN. Her reaction to seeing the presents was priceless. I can't wait until next year.. I'm guessing it'll get even better!!

Santa brought me a BB GUN!! I have wanted one forEVER.. and it was a huge surprise!!

Thanks Codylicious. You're my hero.

Kapri would start to open another present, and then see the 4-wheeler. Im not sure if she thought she was neglecting it, but she insisted on sitting on it almost the entire morning. So.Dang.Cute. I don't care who you are.

Christmas morning family picture... so cute-ish.

We had a delicious steak and egg breakfast (a request by Cody), took a late morning nap, got ready and then headed over to Cody's mom's house.

I'm pretty sure this picture of Kapri and her cousin Taisha is THE cutest.

We ate a delicious meal.. which included HAM!! I was hoping there'd be ham, and they didn't disappoint. It was delish.

The kids had a dance party... ON THE POOL TABLE.

Shh.. don't tell Grandpa.

After their house, we went to Shonni's to see my Dad. Oh, and eat ANOTHER delicious meal. This one consisted of lasagna.

Then we opened more presents.. we got spoiled that day.

My dad brought along his lady friend, Mercedes, and her daughters, Lucy and Linda.

We like them, they laughed along with us (possibly AT us, we'll never know).

Even when we were tooting "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" with our tooters.

We headed home late, after a loooong, fun day. Exhausted.

Until next year!!!
