It has finally snowed enough that it stuck to the ground.
Big Ran hooked up a sled to the 4 wheeler and pulled Kennedy and Madison around the yard.
As you can see, the garden blends in with the snow very well.
Fun times and then we had some hot chocolate per Kennedy’s request.
I hope everyone enjoys the snow like we do around here.
My daughter, Madison and her friends Bailey, Tristan, and Kylie, got ready for the courtwarming dance together at Bailey’s house.
They were really lucky because Tristan’s mom and Bailey’s aunt helped them all with their hair.

They all looked beautiful and just a little too grown up!!
From what I hear it was a fun night!
Madison has played junior high basketball for the last couple of months.
She is number 31.
This wasn’t a great year according to the won/lost record.
We won a few and lost a few more.
Every year as you watch the same girls and boys play a sport, you see how they develop certain skills and comraderary with their teammates.
After all that is what basketball is, a TEAM sport.
A little hip action there.
She loves basketball!!
Mom had her table set in blue.
It was really pretty.
This is what everyone sat down to.
After dinner she got out the carom board. Have you ever played carom? It’s kind of like pool except your fingers are the pool cues.
Mom made lasagna!!! Her lasagna is the best I have ever had. Everyone else agrees with me.
Gracy getting ready to dig in.
Then we decided that all the gifts had to be homemade.
Kamille and Justin drew out Mom’s and Megan’s names. They made candles in wine bottles that they cut off themselves. Pretty impressive.
Nic had Kamille’s name, he made reindeer out of a six-pack of beer and some coasters for her beverages.
Bill had Big Ran’s name. Trust me, he really did like his Osborn green and orange Christmas bulbs. What a hilarious picture!!!
Megan had Kayli’s name and made her a cool teacher crayon wreath and some zebra coasters.
Mom had Madison’s name. She made her a picture frame with pictures of Madison and Dad, and other pictures of Mom and Dad in their younger days.
It is awesome!
Here is a picture of the super heroes and their capes. Bill, Nic, and Justin, I’m sure they are probably wearing these capes now!!
Yes, that’s right, Mom went all out! It was a great time!!
Oh yeah, Kayli, I am still waiting on my homemade gift!!!!!
For Christmas at my mom’s house this year we drew names and the only rule about the gifts were that they had to be homemade.
Big Ran and his tape measure getting our project started.
Madison is in the background doing what she does best…………..TEXTING!!!
Being a left-handed person, I can’t cut anything. I try not to use scissors at all. So, Big Ran did all the cutting.
These were fairly simple to make. I used 1 yard of blue and 1 yard of black fabric for the capes. Big Ran cut out the emblems and I spray glued everything together. Just added velcro to keep them together. See, fairly simple.
I have more pictures of the projects that everyone else made coming. Stay tuned.
