Gingerbread Tradition

So we are going to start a new tradtion in our house during the holidays. We are going to build gingerbread houses. We got our kit at Costco, which was neat because it came with candy, icing and the gingerbread was all made, we just had to put it together. The kids had fun putting the candy on the house that Cam built. However, I think the kids ate more candy than they put on the house. It turned out way cute. The temptation was too much for the kids and they began to nibble on the house shortly after. Our cute little gingerbread house lasted about a week. Oh well, Bailee and Braden had fun and thats what really matters.

Malia Sprouted Teeth

Over Thanksgiving, we noticed that Malia was unusually fussy. So we checked in her mouth and noticed TWO TEETH!! She is 5 1/2 months and can't believe how fast she is growing up. Her favorite thing to do is push her tongue against her new teeth.
Well I have come to the conclusion that Malia is stubborn with a Capital S. I guess she gets it from me. We are trying to give her a bottle, so mommy can have a little break once in awhile.
But she refuses to even try to take it. She will arch her back and just scream. You would think someone was hurting her. On friday Cameron and I have a date. It has been a long time that we have been together without the children. Grandma Linda is going to watch our kids while we have fun Christmas shopping. The problem is she wont take a bottle!! I've tried to pump but I dont have enough milk to make a bottle. We need help, does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it work for all of us.

Deck the Halls

Well Mary finally got me out on the roof to put up Christmas lights, of course that lasted about 15 minutes, and then I decided to just climb a ladder and move the ladder along the house, since I am a little scared of heights. It was quite the experience since this is the first year we have had a home to lights up on. (Only had to redo the lights twice) I must say that they look pretty good. Mary also got the house all done up, she wished she could have done it the day after Thanksgiving but we were out of town, sooo the day we got back it was already started. The kids enjoyed decorating the tree. They also love torturing Dad with their Rudolf and mouse dolls that play, "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "We wish you a merry Christmas" respectively 20 times/hour. They sure were cute the first 30 seconds or so.
