Team Edward

Sorry for the influx of posts! I am on a roll and I'm afraid to stop or I won't get started again for a long time!

For any of you who know me, you probably know that I love the Twilight book series by Stephenie Meyer. That is a preface to this story...

Ryan hated the picture on the December page of my calendar - he said the baby was not cute at all. So one day I caught him coloring on the picture!! I was kind of mad that he wrecked my calendar! So he quickly pulled Cole over and had him help finish what he was doing...

He turned the baby into a vampire baby! And wrote "Team Edward" on it! I guess he knew that I wouldn't be made after that. So funny!! Gotta love Ryan's sense of humor! Did you notice the drip of blood coming from the baby's mouth?

Putting up the tree

The kids had so much fun decorating the tree for Christmas! Here are some fun pics of the process:

This is seriously what some of the branches looked like with the kiddos' help! So cute! I "spread out" the ornaments a little after they went to bed...

Katelyn thinks her stocking works well as a purse, too!

Rock Band with the Wagenmans

We had my family over for dinner in November and afterwards, we played Rock Band. Even my mom played along! It was a lot of fun! We need to do it again soon!


The kids had so much fun at Halloween time. We had a ward trunk or treat and then on Halloween night, Ryan's parents invited us over for chili (a Fish tradition) and then all of the cousins went trick-or-treating together. It was so cute to see the kiddos all lined up with their costumes! Cole was a G.I. Joe (I don't think he knows who that is; he only knows that Ryan loved them when he was young). Katelyn was Minnie Mouse. She is getting so big -I think she was wearing a 4t and it was already getting snug, not to mention short! Ryan's brother and his wife were Mickey and Minnie - nice to see grown-ups get into the mood, too!

Seth's fam visits

One of my big brothers, Seth and his fam came to visit in October. It was great to see him and his wife and girls - they're getting so big! We all got together at my brother Joel's house. The kiddos had the best time playing together. Can't wait to see them again!

I love the look of pure bliss on Katelyn's face in this one!
