Santa Claus is Comin' to Town

Obviously Kayda doesn't listen to the advice in the song "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" . You know the better watch out, you better not cry! She hasn't quite figured out that she needs to schmooze Santa. These are pictures from last year and the repeat this year. Sorry Santa please still leave Kayda some presents

Winter Wonderland

The only good part about cold weather is the snow (And only to play in!) We woke up this morning with some snow on the ground so we decided to go sledding. Since most of the sledders were in school we have fresh snow and no competition for the hill. Kayda seemed to be more interested in eating the snow than sledding this year. Jaden tried to teach her how to make a snow angel. She didn't quite get the concept but oh well we had a fun snow day anyway!

We are getting ready to send out Christmas cards. We attempted taking pictures. I love the rejects so I am going to post them. You will have to wait for the winner picture in the form of a Christmas card. Enjoy! p.s. If you are reading this and want a Christmas card (and I don't have your address - send it :)

I Am bringing it Back!!

Sometime after the 80's my sister gave me her crimper. It rested for a few years and then it got fired up when I went to college. Despite my crimping parties and debuting them at dances or ward parties the fad never quite made it's return that I had hoped. (I have tons of pictures of participating roomates and friends including Steve who joined in only after convincing him it uncrimps with mere washing of the hair) After my unsuccessful attempts the crimper got put back in the closet.(sorry no pictures of college years - too lazy to scan tonight)

But during Halloween my sister Maria(the one who gave me the crimper) decided to make her girls be "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" with Cat in the Hat. She needed a wild hairdo for the costume and TaDa! the crimper came out.

Well the other night I was making dinner when Jaden announced that our daughter had found the crimper AND plugged it in. (she likes to pull out the child safety plugs). Jaden said it was rather amusing seeing her try to crimp her hair herself but decided to jump in before she got burned. She sat completely still as he crimped her hair. So maybe I didn't suceed with bringing crimping back in my generation but maybe the next!!
