Let it Snow - Let it Snow - Let it Snow

We finally got some snow - and actually enough worth talking about!  It would have been better had it started Sunday night (to get us out of work), but it was pretty to see everything turn white :)  Daniel and I were stuck in the house all weekend, so by Sunday we were ready to get out and run some errands.  Being stuck in the house isn't bad when it's your choice!  I took some pictures of the house in the pretty snow...


Santa got snowed in!

Just a picture I thought was neat...

I also took a picture of the wreath my saleswoman at work sent us - which smells absolutely wonderful! (The picture looks a little weird because of the camera flash)

The snow was pretty and fun for a day or two, but now it's just slushy and gross!

Santa came early....

....for Tyler & Erik!

Chey & Kelli had Tyler last weekend, so Santa showed up early because he knew he wouldn't be able to get to the house on Christmas Eve :)  The boys made out good this year!

Everything before the living room was a disaster!

Both boys looking through their gifts!

And of course Erik loved his little 4 wheeler!

Can't wait until Christmas Day to see Erik get into even more!

While we were all in Ashland for Erik's birthday party, mom wanted to take Christmas we did!  Here's a little preview :-)

Erik's 1st Birthday!

I cannot believe my nephew is ONE! Time flies! I already know he is going to be the one to make me feel old - I already am saying "I remember when we were sitting in the waiting room awaiting your arrival!" This past year has been so fun and now with him walking all over the place - even better! Hes the cutest!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday little man - Uncle Daniel and Auntie love you! xoxo

MWV Christmas Party

Friday December 4th was MWV's Christmas party which was held at our new building downtown.  This was everyone's first time seeing the building that we're going to be working in.  It's super nice and big!  I might get lost for the first week or two - no lie!

They gathered everyone outside for the illumination - I actually thought they would have some Christmas lights on the building, but they just lit each floor up for everyone.

I didn't take any pictures inside, but we now have a nice cafeteria and a coffee shop (ah!).

The girls from work and our boys all went to Blackfinn afterwards.  It was a good time - I love the girls I work with! Here's some pictures of course :-)

Linda, Kriston, and Holly

We're doing the cupid shuffle!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

It's December! I can't believe it - this year has gone by way too fast!

Right after Thanksgiving, I decorated for Christmas, which I was really excited about.  I still want to run out and get a few more decorations.  Our den is a little bare on the decorations, and I want to get some lights for the outside of the house.
What's a post without pictures?!
This picture is of the little tree that people can see from the outside :)

And of our mantle....
And our Christmas Tree (it actually looks really small in the picture) and no I haven't started my Christmas shopping, so the bottom of the tree is BARE!
All that decorating and this is what the pups were doing the entire time
