So my mom baked cupcakes, invited family over and told them they had to bring a present!
I was dying!
Happy "Birthday" Emily!

Jack - 14 months

My little man is growing up too fast.

Here is what he has been up to:
Loves his baths still
Says - "Choo Choo" "Vroom Vroom"
Follows his Sissy around and loves to get into her toys
Wants to play outside any chance he can get.
Is facing forward in his carseat.
Isn't a big fan of any meat but occassionally we can sneak it in.
LOVES Fruit Snacks and brings them to me about once a hour
**he doesn't get them once an hour**

Welcome Alice and Jake!

Since Jessie has left us to the "call of the wild" we needed to get Annie some backup.
Welcome Alice and Jake to our ranch, they are Great Pyrenees puppies who seem to grow every day!

The kiddos love them and they love the kids. They have already bonded to our baby goats and will soon move to the big pasture with the biggies and Annie.

I know they will do a great job protecting us from all the boogie monsters out there.

The Big Gifts

I remember when I was a kid waiting for the BIG Christmas gift. It wasn't always the biggest gift that was under the treet. It was the one you were really, really hoping for.

Emily's big gift this year was her Nintendo DS. It seemed to be on every one of her friend's lists, each with a different color choice.

Jack loves everything cars, trucks, trains, dirt....he is all boy!
We decided to get him a train table and he was so excited.
He says "choo-choo" and pushes the little trains around.

What a morning!

So I knew we were going to get snow but I didn't expect this....

We had 2+ feet of snow when we woke up this mroning. Of course Jeremy isn't home...
things always happen when he is at work.

I spent the morning digging us out.

I didn't do anything with my wasn't like I was going anywhere! ha ha
Emily had a great time though!

We are looking at a week of snow so I am trying to keep up with the plowing and shoveling so we don't get too burried.

The First Snow

We got our first snow today! It wasn't too cold so I took the kiddos out to play.

Emily likes to roll down the hills in the snow...she is CRAZY!

Jack wasn't too sure of the snow...I think it was too cold on his little hands.
His head was warm thanks to his Auntie!

Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Georgetown does an annual tree lighting ceremony downtown. Emily was lucky enough to be able to help decorate it earlier in the day.

The tree is HUGE on our tiny streets.

We loaded up lots of blankets, jackets and hot chocolate and watched them light the tree and then the "Parade of Lights"
The parade had about five cars lit up by christmas lights...they drive around twice to make it a little longer! ha ha

Holiday Cake Pops

Jack had his first cake pop! He ate the whole thing and wanted more!

I made the cake pops for Emily's School Craft Fair. It was my first attempt at holiday ones and I think they turned out pretty cute!

Jack's First Birthday

Our little man is 1 year old!
Time has gone by so fast. He is such a great little boy we are so blessed.

He can take about 5-6 steps at a time.
He loves to play monster and come screaming at you to "get you."
He still LOVES banana's (hence the Monkey nickname) and eats them every morning.
He lights up when his Sissy comes into the room.
He has a way with animals and isn't scared of any of them.
He is in bed at 6:30pm and wakes up about 7am but his naps are non-existant now.
He finally said "Momma" but it usually is when he is tired and whiny and wants something.
He can say Da-da, babble (bottle), dog, bana (banana), up, by-by (and wave), go, and no.
He knows the sign for more and when he is hungry he makes a silly sound by vibrating his lips together. It is better than screaming!
He loves pushing his Lighting McQueen car around and saying "vrrom vrrom"

Happy Thanksgiving!

This was our first Thanksgiving at the ranch! It was a beautiful day filled with yummy food and family!

Dad is the turkey carver!

Cindy and Ron were able to drive up and join us!

Emily always eats the two...yes TWO...turkey legs!
Jack doesn't look so happy in this picture.
Maybe his tummy hurts because he ate too much...or maybe it was past his bedtime.

Gramma and Papa Visit the Ranch

My parents came up for a week over Thanksgiving. They left their house in the middle of a remodel to spend some time with us.

Emily took Gramma on a tour showing her all the new things happening around the ranch.

Jack and Papa spent some "Boy" time together.

My mom is very afraid of the llamas. We finally got her to feed Tom!
