Santa Day and a video

Saturday was Santa Day. We went to the "mall" so the boys could see Santa. Corbin did get a candy cane and an apple from him, but would not get any closer and wouldn't say a word to him. This has been his reaction the last 3 years! He really is not a fan of costumes!

Elias didn't care a bit. He was game for sitting in Santa's lap and getting a candy cane and an apple! He finished off both while Mommy shopped all the vendor booths.

In the afternoon, the movie theater offers a free movie. Corbin and I went to see Hotel for Dogs.

Corbin was singing while decorating our tree! He doesn't know any Christmas songs, so he sang the ABC's!

Lately, Corbin has been enjoying praying for our meals. A typical prayer sounds something like this, "Come Lord Jesus. I love you God. Bless our food. I love you Jesus. In Jesus name. Amen."

The quilt top is one step closer to being done! I put it all together this afternoon!

Now, just for the border!

And then for the next step...whatever that is...I seriously don't know. I haven't ever quilted before, so I should probably look into what I do with the quilt top after I have it together. Any ideas?

I am wondering if there is a good way of quilting it at home instead of hiring it done? I don't want to take the yarn route...but I also don't want to spend a fortune to have it done.

Noodle Soup

We are sick!

We have all had our own version of the flu since Saturday.
Eli started the trend on the way home from Gpa and Gma's.
Then Corbin caught a mild case of it.
Joel was in bed on Monday.
Me (Emily) on Tuesday.
Now, Wednesday, we are all enjoying a sore tummy.

We ate noodle soup and crackers for supper,
with a dessert of Powerade!

We are all cranky (well, the boys and me), tired and sick of being sick.

Pray this leaves us soon!
(Especially Elias. It seems to have hit him the worst!)

Thanksgiving 2009 -- At the Farm


Corbin made sure to play all the instruments every time he was let in the living room.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal of turkey and all the trimmings. My mom made really good lefse, too!

Joel cut the turkey (and his finger).

Snuggles with Grandma Cathy.

On Friday, we went bowling.

It was Eli's first time bowling!

Corbin's first time, too!

And Corbin my have done better than a certain nameless adult that played.

Corbin was able to get outside and watch the backhoe go to work. Simon was looking for any excuse to use it!
