We had a great Christmas and instead of posting a bunch of pictures here's video of Kaleb and Ashton. Ashton didn't care too much to unwrap the presents but once he saw what was under the paper he would get excited.

The present at the house that was too big to fit under the tree was a trampoline. Even though it was freezing cold and starting to snow Kaleb had to try it out.

Thanks to everyone for all of the great gifts.

Why our Chrismas tree still isn't up....

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

It was very unexpected and we weren't going to buy for a couple more years but we couldn't pass it up. We've never felt so prompted to do anything like we were to buy this house. The last 4 weeks have been crazy and I'm glad the home buying process is over. We've started taking down the wallpaper, which is in every room but 1 bedroom and the living room. We aren't going to move in for a couple of months so that we can get the house ready first. I'm still going to manage the apartments we currently live in for another 2 years until Matt is finished with his MBA. So during the week the boys and I will still spend some time at our current apartment, hopefully with a lot less stuff in it.

The house is located in Murray by Wheeler Farm. It's a 4 bed/2 bath brick rambler which is what we always wanted. They were the original owners and he was a handyman and so everything has been taken really good care of. We're hoping to finish the basement in the next year or two and we're excited to have a garden next year.

Christmas is coming...

Yesterday we spent the evening with my aunt and uncle. Kaleb decorated the trees while Ashton pulled them over and we even saw Santa. Winder Dairy during the month of December has scones and hot chocolate for $.50 from 4:30-6:30 and Santa is there. It wasn't busy like last year so for anyone looking to see Santa without waiting in a huge line this is the place to go. And the scones are delish.

Ashton thought it was so funny to watch his brother wearing the antlers...
Ashton's latest obsession is the dishwasher. Usually I leave the racks in as I'm loading it or he unloads everything but yesterday he decided he would just climb into the dishwasher to get the silverware.

Thanksgiving in Colorado

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend in Colorado. It was relaxing and nice to get away. We went to a shooting range and Kaleb had a blast. He's already asking to go again. Here's Ashton eating breakfast with frizzy hair. He loved the leftover sweet potatoes.
I finally was able to take a picture with both Kaleb and Ashton looking at the camera, but Kaleb can't ever just smile anymore. He's always making funny faces.
We played the Wii a couple of times when we were there. Here's Ashton "playing". I have a video of Kaleb boxing with his grandpa but it's really long so it won't load but boy did they get into it.
