Skye won tickets from a radio show for Dancing with the Stars the Tour. She let me go with her because she is so nice. So we went to dinner and got there early so we were going around to all the booths and got a ton of free stuff (t-shirts, bags, thermoses, key chains, ect.) But the cool thing was I won a Samsung Eternity phone. They only gave 20 away each night and I got it! It doesn't work with Verizon so we're going to sell it on e-bay but it was cool anyway. My favorite couple this season was Lance and Lacey and they were there and they did my favorite dance which was their tango so I was so excited. Here's the YouTube version of it.
We had a great Christmas this year. The boys slept in and we woke up to snow and lots of it. The news said we got 13 inches yesterday. We spent Christmas Eve playing at the Hanks House and then had breakfast for my family at our house so we didn't have to get up and go anywhere. We spent the afternoon at the Reese side of the family and had an enjoyable day. Denver's favorite present from Santa was a Little Einstein Laptop computer. Darling! If anyone is looking for a good 3+ age present this is it. Only $25 and it teaches them games with letters, numbers, and music. It's going to be great in the car and now they leave my laptop alone. We are going to invest in one for Beck too. Today Coby spent the morning snow blowing everyone out with his brothers and dad and then we went sledding down the hill by his parents house. The kids had so much fun (and the adults) the boys even got brave and tried snowboarding on the sleds down. Beck wasn't a fan but sat on my lap the whole time watching the entertainment. After we had soup at and the kids watched Wall*E. They wanted a snack and none of us got them one so we found that Lexie had gotten a box of Wheat thins and they were munching on the couch while they watched the movie.
My mom came over and we spent Saturday making treats. Denver had so much fun helping dip pretzels in chocolate while Beckham just ate the chocolate... Today we had a ton of snow so Coby and Denver went out to shovel and build a snow man. You can see how bad it's snowing in the pictures.
We had our family party this year at the bowling alley and had so much fun! The kids loved bowling while we ate and opened presents. Santa even found us there and bowled a frame. Denver acted like they were best friends and gave him our letters, Beckham wasn't a fan until he got a present from him, then he would go near him if we held him.
Well this morning we woke up to a little snow. Denver started running around like a maniac wanting to go out and play. So it was 8:00 in the morning and the three of us are out playing in the snow.Denver lovesthe snow and spent the whole time shoveling. He wanted to make a snowman and slide down hills like last year but I talked him into waiting till there was more snow. He just sat out there and played. Beckham wasn't sure what he thought of the snow. It wasn't the cold or wet that he didn't like, it was the clothes. He really disliked the pants and hat and gloves, but it was the boots that were the worst. He could barely walk two feet without falling over, Oh well, at least there is finally a little snow to play in (at least for today)
Well after six months of waiting we finally started our house. It's been such a process of we can go then not yet (because we decided to build when the economy isn't it great). We have been currently living with my Uncle Travis in our old house for a month since it's been officially his. He is letting us stay with him until ours is done in April/May. Denver loves to go look at our hole and asks every day if our new house is done. Foundation is done tomorrow and we start framing on Monday and hope to keep things moving as fast as we can push! If anyone wants to give us any great ideas for a new house, let us know before it's done.
