Up in these parts it doesn’t take much to dream of a white Christmas. We are blessed with an abundance of snow to enjoy.
Along with some wildlife in our backyard.
Anson and Paige, (but mostly Anson), has helped to make us a white Christmas IN the house too.
Paige wanted to give Ava something to look at from her bed.
Anson’s ginormous one for his door and as many as he could fit on his window.
Who needs a wreath when you have snowflakes?! Even I got in on the action once I remembered how much fun it was.

9 varieties of cookies
Chaos? or fun? We say FUN!!!!
Getting started. Sarah and Jill (above), Orpha and Karen (below)
We resorted to throwing some Kix and pretzels on the table for the babies. Pictured is Luke, Sophie, and Ava. 6 of the 10 kids were under 2.
Thad was enjoying some time away from the other kids.
Everyone (the kids that is) started falling apart about 11:30 so we stopped for lunch. The girls got to eat downstairs at the bar, they thought that was pretty cool.
Abby, Greta, Halle
Peanut Butter Balls
Fudgy Mint Cookies
Peanut Butter Blossoms (?) not sure if that’s their name.
PB Cup Cookies
Thad and Sophie rockin’ out!
Little Leif, all tuckered out and ready to go home.

Obviously it was a busy month for us. But I thought I’d take a break from house project pictures and let you see what else has been going on this month.
Anson’s 7th (wow) birthday! Paige couldn’t stay out of the boy pic, sigh, what do we have to look forward to?
Anson got his first gun for his birthday. Not sure whose more excited, him or Jerem. Okay, probably Anson.
Jerem’s parents braved the flu “epidemic” that was going on at our house and came up for Thanksgiving. It was a nice, quiet weekend with them.
So, I think that’s about all I have for pictures from November. We finally have space to keep Jerem’s china set from his grandparents so we used that for the first time for Thanksgiving dinner. It felt kinda special eating off of something other than our normal dinnerware.
Stay tuned, baking day pics coming next!
