A Month!!

For me and the kids our Christmas travels began a couple weeks earlier than we had planned, due to the passing of my Grandpa Kesler. We are sad because we miss him but know that he is in the place he has longed to be "Home"! Being able to head to Texas a couple weeks early gave us some time to relax and enjoy ourselves!

We helped Nana Stone put up her Christmas tree, Kyle was the biggest help of all. Kyle got to ride his 4-wheeler and did an awesome job controlling it. He is not quite ready to be on it all by himself but he was in full control- speed racer!!

The only time Payton would let Grandpa Stone hold her was when he would bribe her with washing her hands, silly little girl! We enjoyed making Christmas cookies with Grandma Stone, and did not forget to have our ice cold cokes near by!

The kids looked so sharp in their Christmas outfits. The first picture was the Sunday before Christmas and the second picture was taken Christmas Eve!

On Christmas Day we went to Fort Worth to spend time with Jeremy, Hillary and Nana, Papa Stone. Kyle and Payton were quite the little helpers with wrapping paper. We enjoyed one last meal in Papa Keslers house, having his dining room table crammed with people around it is exactly what he loved!

The next day we jumped on a plane and headed for a little colder weather in Washington State. The kids did amazing during our 4 hour flight!! We were very blessed!

To Kyle's unbelievable excitement we had Christmas number two at Grandma Pam and Grandpa Randy's house!! Kyle did not know what to think about having a whole other Christmas and even more toys! Uncle Jason was a hero helping put together all of the transformer toys that Kyle got. Payton fell asleep before she could attack the gifts, but she had lots of fun opening them the next morning.

Kyle had so much fun with Auntie Carly. They threw snowballs at each other and got to decorate cookies! I must say they turned out pretty cool! Kyle got to enjoy a few of those before bed time! I snuck a few myself, it is the holidays!!

We put a little hair piece on Payton and she looked like a little "show baby"! Both Kyle and Payton enjoyed playing with their little auntie pugs, Annie, Mo, Tess and Abby!
We had a wonderful Christmas Vacation, a little exhasting, but a lot of fun and well worth it!

Posting during naptime eh. WHat fun. I especially liked the pics of the kids all dressed up for church. They coordinate with each other and everything! Love you.

The Farm

We went down to Fort Collins to "The Farm". We went with a group of our friends. The kids just loved it. There were tons of farm animals for the kids to see and feed. Kyle got to ride a horse, he looks like a professional rider. Payton just sat in the stroller happy as can be!
