I am going to buy snow to make my Department 56 village look a little more festive.
We are also going to buy a few more sets of lights to hang around our banisters. Well, Merry Christmas everyone!

Now THAT is a banana split. Andrew came home this past weekend and was "hankerin'" after a banana split so I made him one. I thought I was going to be able to help him eat a couple of bites but by the time I finished making it I didn't think I could eat any without it making me sick so....
He ate the WHOLE thing... yes he did. ( Yes we can!! - that's for you babe!! hahahaha) For you who might not be able to figure out that inside joke... Obama said "Yes we can" about 17 times in his acceptance speech... and I haven't even hardly been able to talk to my husband since he got elected, because he has NOT been a happy man!! :)
It took me about four tries to get this picture of Taylor working so hard with his tongue sticking out, carving his pumpkin. He was very serious about it!!
I remember blogging last year about the kids carving pumpkins... where has the time gone??

These are Keebler cookies, I can't remember the name, with fudge on the back of them. Turn them over on their fronts. Then put white frosting around the inside circle (we later figured out it was easier to put the frosting on the top of the Reese cup). The one thing I couldn't find was Mini Chiclets for the buckle of the hat. So we just did without. It would have looked alot cuter if I could have found some.
Taylor kept eating parts of his project. :)
Tyler decided to wear his pilgrim hat.
Grant turned his upside down and stacked them.
Katie used a piece of foil as her buckle.
Even Heidi made some.

The teddy bear was not to be found at the time of this picture. However, I did find it soon thereafter. It seems one young boy thought it would be fun to take the bear's sweater off and put it on again, so it was moved from the place it had been. Anyway, thank you babe, for thinking of me and sending me such beautiful flowers and chocolates, etc. That was so thoughtful of you. I hope you had a good day!! Sorry we can't be together!!
I have to tell you a funny story... We were in Burger King the other day after school, me and the 6 kids, and before we ate we were waiting to see who was going to pray, that seemed to be taking too long so I decided I would pray real quick and said the prayer that I taught the kids to pray when they were little. "Thank you Jesus for the food, help us to be kind and good. Amen" When I got done, Taylor looked up with a quizzed look on his face and said "kind of good?" I about died laughing... he was looking really hopeful, like, you mean we only have to be "kind of" good? Hey, I think I can do that!!! heehee He is so funny!!

Turn on the Christmas music.... no really, go do it, right now....... OK, do you have "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas" on? Now get yourself some hot chocolate, come on, quit making me have to beg..... go get yourself some hot chocolate.... hurry up. Now, make sure there is no noise in your house, except the Christmas music, and watch this little clip.
Cara, you'll have to get your kids to see this, since they rarely get to see it snowing! :)
Now, go take a Valium, we've got to get to church in this slippery stuff!!

I put the larger pictures of the bear and the bear skull at the bottom of the post so you can see them better. Vonnie

While Andrew was home this past weekend, he went and picked up the bear skull he had a taxidermist friend "do" for him. It is the skull of the bear I had pictured at the bottom of this blog for a long time. I don't have it down there now, but it is a HUGE bear!! The twins were really intrigued.
He also picked up Drew's buffalo skin which you can see here. This is just the back half of the skin because they are doing a head mount, so you can see how big this animal is.
Tyler wanted to help me shape the rolls for Sunday dinner... my hair is wet, that's why it looks like that.
Aurora had another litter of puppies a few days ago. We have three puppies left who seem to be doing well.

and Ginny (Alicia and Ginny are both pregnant.. that's why I took this picture like this)
Here are all four of the cooks, Lauren left a few weeks before this, there were five of them. Here is Sam's little boy, Logan, he is so cute.... ...but if he doesn't want you to look at him, he screams, just like this... (hahahaha)
Then we went flying in Andrew's Super Cub Straight ahead is the runway we used, it looks like a road, we were crossing the "big" runway.Looking back at the airport where we just took off Ain't that purty? We dropped and came in low over the dock so Darryl Q. could get a video on his camera Here I was trying to get a picture of Darryl, but the picture took too late. Still, I wanted you to see just how low we were to the water. (cringe) Beautiful fall colors along the Andreafsky River Thoroughly enjoyed the flying... can't wait to do it again! Love you, babe!!
