because we got this for Christmas - the Canon Power Shot SX30IS - and we are in love.

The kids had a blast helping put up the Christmas decorations. Brenna was SO excited to find out that we actually had all the wonderful decorations she had been admiring in all the stores we went to. Seriously, she clapped and exclaimed "WOW" or "PRETTY" every time something new was taken out of the boxes. The look on her face was priceless - it was like, "WHY did I not know we had all this stuff??!!" Their favorite decoration, however is this silly rope light that I've had since before I was married. I've only used it once, but I have a feeling it will get used more often now. They played with it for HOURS!
Brenna is currently IN LOVE with stickers - and Band-Aids. She got these foam stickers for her birthday and she is obsessed with putting them all over her body - and I am constantly finding them all over the house, stuck together in globs in her purse or stuck to my socks. This girl makes me laugh!
A few days after Thanksgiving, I was able to spend some time with my dear friend Leesa and her family. We grew up together, went to school together - we pretty much did everything together! She moved to New Mexico so we don't get to see each other very often anymore, and this trip I was finally able to meet her new little guy Andrew (who must love me already 'cuz he was born on my birthday).
I "love" how my kids refuse to smile on most pictures nowdays.
I was making dinner one night and the kids were playing together. The next thing I knew, Brenna had abandoned Easton so he tried to entertain himself by blowing raspberries on the kitchen floor - it was hilarious but I missed most of it on this video and of course, he stopped when he noticed I was there. He was COVERED in spit - so cute!
