On Christmas morning we decided to get some fresh air. Tyler was pulled along in his new sled while the rest of us walked.

On Christmas Eve, Grandpa read "The Night Before Christmas" to us.
The next morning dawned with a beautiful sunrise.
We drank coffee and began to look at all the gifts under the tree.
Tyler got a lot of gifts, including a new sled.

We went on the Polar Express train ride this weekend, and it was a blast!
|All Aboard!! 250 people can ride this choo-choo|
|So excited to get on!|
|Found our seat on the train!|
|These guys had a great time|
|Views out the window were neat, until it got too dark to see.|
|Kids sitting and listening to the elf read the book|
|Santa coming to the train|
|this little boy was entranced --looking at the North Pole through the steamy window|
|Santa got on board, and who here is more excited???|
|Ho Ho Ho, we've been good boys|

Here are Shawn and Tyler getting ready to board the train.
And here are Tyler and I standing at the Center of Montana!! It was just next to the swimming pool in the hotel. Pretty neat!

Oh what fun, making wreaths and wine bottle lamps and fleece baby hats. My mother and law and I thought we would make some money at a craft bazaar selling our stuff.
No such luck, the hot items were fake puppies and kitties and squirrel-bunnies. Every kid and adult in town wanted a rabbit-fur raccoon ordered from California and made in China.
Some of them even breathe when you pet them.

This morning we heard a statistic that 91% of all Americans would be eating turkey today.
I guess we are part of the 9% that didn't. Weather kept us from enjoying the holidays with family, and we didn't want to prepare a giant turkey for only 3 people...so I bought a chicken which was tasty, just not the same. I used bowls and dishes that reminded us of, or were given to us by friends and family.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

A few weekends ago, we went to Bozeman. It was Matthew's last football game of the year and we left home early to make it there on time. Tyler loooooved watching and playing with other kids.
|Grandpa and Tyler had a great view|
Tyler didn't recognize Matthew at first--the shoulder pads and helmet made him nervous, but it didn't take him long to warm up.
|Matthew and Tyler|
|The Dolphins vs. the ??? team. Matthew's team won!! (He's in the middle, #74)|

The kids started the day with a Halloween Party at day care, and then went out in the afternoon to walk around town with the elementary school kids to trick or treat.
|Getting in a circle to play games|
|Tyler was the only kid to lick the frosting off the cupcake and then drink the ranch dressing|
|We yelled at him from across the street when they went on the Halloween walk to local stores. He wasn't sure what they were doing.|
|"look at me...I have hooves and don't even have to walk!" His best friend Wyatt refused to wear his monkey costume.|
|Shawn and I walked with them for a little bit but then decided we didn't want to deal with the swarms of kids begging for candy.|
