How to make a gingerbread house Kolton and Karter style.

Here is Kolton and Karter's version of the gingerbread house.

I thought it was the prettiest gingerbread house around. The dog thought it was the yummiest when I gave it to him after Christmas.

Oklahoma Blizzard 2009

Please do not notice how I have my eyes closed in the beginning and ending of the video. The wind was whipping around me and it was cold as I stupidly tried to take the video not only without a coat but without shoes as well. Okie dokie.

Merry Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas to all my bloggie friends. I hope each of you get to spend time with those you love. Eat good food, laugh often, enjoy life for there are those out there who are not fortunate to have any or all the above.

P.S. The boys may be enjoying snow later on. It will be their first white Christmas, hopefully the weather won't be too bad and we will be able to travel to our families house later on.

P.S.S I am just now noticing that I have been using 's on our cards for a year or so. After much research I think it's actually just an s. This is not the card I sent to everyone on that one I did put just an s. Someone who is not grammatically challenged can you tell me the correct usage? The hubby and I discussed this at large a few days ago.

Kolton the Little Chinese Boy.

Our nice Chinese neighbor who is very fond of the boys, and telling us we forgot to put out the trash, gave the boys a Christmas gift. You never know what you're going to get from from the nice Chinese lady.

These are the boxes that the gift came in.

I thought the printing on the side was interesting.

Kolton was the only one who would try it on. Karter was not having it.


I love that she is giving them a glimpse of a different culture.

Mr. Smarty McCat

Remember this cat?

One night a couple of weeks ago he wanted outside. He was out there for and hour or so and before I went to bed I called for him but he never came so I went to bed. The next morning he was asleep on the couch. I paused for a moment but figured Jimmy or one of the boys let him in. Later in the morning I noticed the back door to the garage was open. I asked Jimmy about it he said he didn't do it, then I asked him if he let Slinky in because I was sure he was outside the night before and now he was asleep on the couch. He said he didn't let him in.

Hmm... I began to wonder if he somehow got in that open door and more importantly how did the door get open. Then it happened again in the daytime, however I still didn't see how the door got open. So that set me out on a quest to see if he was somehow opening the door.

This is what I found.

Please ignore the ghetto pool, that we have yet to drag into the garage. It's been there for a month or so, but pretend you don't see it mmkay.
Also, that's Wow Wow Wubbzy on in the background.

Look at Sparky(the dog) he's all what the hell?

Retro Park

We've been in our small town for a little over a year now, and we are still finding things we didn't know about. As I've mentioned before we live in a rural community that basically has a few stores and most people live on an acre or a little less but the lots are still pretty big.

Not far from our house is the little pond I referred to in this post. On that visit to the pond we discovered the little park with old equipment. We went back recently and because there were not flying, stinging insects there this time we could enjoy the equipment.

I really like this park and will probably go back there this spring and summer to take pictures.
