A photo montage of the last few months :)

My Sister and I while painting our house...what a great help our families were!!

We went up to the canyon and had a was sooooo fun and so beautiful.

We went up the canyon another time with my sis and her fam and took some great family pics...I loved it...we are doing this every year instead of a studio, they turned out great!

Isn't he so stinkin' cute!!

What a cute couple :)

Those silly girls, they love to get their pictures taken, especially if they chose their own outfits..I just give then a color theme and they do pretty good :)

See any family resemblance...I love my sis...she is my best friend, I am so glad that we live so close and that our lives are so intertwined!!! Sister-Thanks for being so great to me!

My sister and I tried to make fudge for the first time....we used an Alton Brown recipe from the food turned out horribly, but we had so much fun!!

Aeryn at her preschool Christmas was sooo cute! She even got to say a line from the "night before christmas poem" in the microphone and she loved that!

Playing in the snow in our backyard...they loved going out in the snow

We tried making a snowman but the snow was too dry it wouldn't even stick together in a little snowball. Our snow man turned into a snow lump with leaves for eyes and mouth and a carrot nose. It was so pathetic, but the girls loved it!!
Christmas morning...thanks Grandma for the awesome jammies, everyone was so warm and snuggly. We had a wonderful for Christmas. Ellie even told me she wanted to write Santa a letter to tell him thank you for the wonderful sweet, huh?

These are from Christmas Eve. We went to my sister's and had tri tip, scalloped potatoes, veggies, yummy was so fun and the kids enjoy hanging out!!

Everybody showing off their new jammies...squishing Ellie!!
On New Years Day we went sledding with my Sister's family and my parents...the kids got new sleds for Christmas and they were so excited to try them out. Even Xander loved it.
My dad trying to put a little more air in the inner tube...what a good Grandpa!
Grandma hanging out with Xander!!
Ellie was the queen of going down the hill...she just kept sliding down and then hiking back up....over and over without ever complaining...what a good girl. Aeryn had the best time...she would go down the hill with someone and then they would just pull her in the sled back up the hill...she never ever walked up the hill and she loved that!!

I know this was sort of a Peterson photo overload...but hopefully now I can keep slightly up to date...probably not, but it is worth a try!!
