Christmas Fun!!

So, just to sort of sum things up a bit, we had a great Christmas!! It started out with the kids doing a Christmas performance at school. Jake's grade sang "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas", and he did great! They did a slide show with his so I couldn't take a video or any pictures. Then Kolby's class sang "Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer." Before we even went into the gym, he was already upset that he had to take off his Santa hat he wore to school and wear his reindeer hat for the song, so things didn't quite start off on the right foot anyway. But, as the song started, his hat just wouldn't stay on right for him! I don't know if it was a combination of everything, but it sort of all went downhill from there. He tried to stay up there and sing but his tears seemed to take over so, in the end, his teacher came up and said he could go and sit with me. It was so sweet though! Maybe next year will be better!!

The Kolbster!

This weekend has been an interesting one to say the least. You can tell that Christmas is getting very close. The Boyz are feeding off one another with excitement. At first it was cute, but now I'm about ready to pull the rest of the hair that I lack out of my head! They are so cute, but at the same time are little monsters! They are so hyped up, but at the same time so tired. Kolby was in such a daze at lunch on Saturday. He stared at the same spot for at least 10 minutes eating his Frosty. He then insisted on wearing his "Joseph Hair" all day after playing Joseph in the Primary nativity. We are so looking forward to Christmas Day! Hopefully they will settle down a bit and give us some room to breathe . . . and maybe take a nap or two!

Break Dancing!

This is the coolest thing in the world! Jake took a Break Dancing class at school these past few months and tonight he performed in front of an audience. He made us proud with his awesome Hip Hop moves!

The leaves are falling down!

This was only about an eighth of what we still have on the tree!

They had a blast!

He is such a cheezeball!

With the weather changing around here it's time to start doing yard clean up!(Mixed in with a little fun of course!!!) We have a 25 year old Sycamore tree in our back yard. I have a love/hate relationship with it. It shades our whole back yard and has some really awesome bird's nest in it but the leaves don't all fall off usually until AFTER the snow starts to fall. So we feel like we are raking leaves clear into January! But we wouldn't trade it for anything.
This tree ROCKS! I took a video of them jumping in, but somehow, its lost. Boo. Anyway, you get the idea. And this is only the VERY beginning!!! We still have a LLLOOOOOONNNGGGG way to go!
