December Catch Up

A lot has been going on the last few weeks so lets get caught up...We have gotten a lot of snow the last few days and the kids are loving it. They play all day in the snow. Weston loves the snow and keeps going out without the proper attire on. Luckily on this day he got it right.
This day he did not. But at least Ashlyn and Hunter were dressed for the weather. You can tell that we had a little snow in this picture compared to the above picture.
We had to have the annual Christmas picture in their Christmas clothes. Even though we were running late for church we were able to get a good picture, which is surprising.
We Celebrated Christmas early with the Mills side of the family. Shaun's parents are going to Utah for the holidays. Grandma Mills had the grandchildren act out the nativity. Ashlyn was an angel, Hunter was Joseph and Weston was a sheep. (He only bit Joseph). Ashlyn is the sasy angel in the red shirt in the back. Hunter is in the blue and green robe looking thrilled. Weston is the cute sheep in the Gap sweatshirt. This picture was taken while they were getting ready.

I thought this was a cute picture of the sheep and Joseph. This is before he bit Joseph.
The best part was the wise men. Shaun and his brother Trevor were the lucky ones to play this part.

Here is the final picture of all of them together. Notice the wisemen took off and the sheep is looking else where. It went well and all the kids had fun doing it. Grandma Mills did a great job getting all of the costumes put together.

Early Christmas Gift

Ashlyn tried out and made one of the select basketball teams in town. Since she needs to practice, her Grandma and Grandpa Roedel decided that the kids needed an early Christmas present.
The kids got a basketball hoop and new basketballs. They are loving having this gift. So are all the neighborhood kids.
Hunter is out every morning before kindergarten and both of them are out there after school. Can you believe that it is December and they are playing basketball outside with no coats on!
