Putting up the tree!

Everyone had to hold the tree up and get soaking wet from all the snow melting, while my dad was busy crawling around under the tree building a tree stand out of 2x6's.  It wasn't easy, but it was worth it. 

Cutting down the Christmas Tree!!

Every year my family cuts down an 18 foot Christmas Tree in the Mountains. It is so fun! This year we went a little past Alpine Wyoming. It was a 1 1/2 hour drive each way. But it was a Blast!! And this is the Tree!!!
My mom, Ashtyn, Austin, and Bentley in the background
Here is the tree all loaded up on the trailer behind the car. Notice that the tree is longer than the car! 
Zach and Austin getting ready to tie down the tree to the trailer
Here is everyone waiting for my dad to back up the trailer to load the tree. Everyone is so tired from pulling the tree out of the woods to the road. We had such a fun time!

Cutting down the Christmas Tree pics

Here is an action shot of Bentley running around in the snow. He absolutely loved it! He even found a rabbit and chased it around. And yes, those are little snow boots! He wore 2 coats and some snow boots! 
Here is another action shot! A pic of the tree falling down! 
Sorry, these pics are a little out of order. Here is Zach taking his turn sawing the tree down!
Another cute pic of our son! Enjoying playing in the snow. The snow was so deep that he had to hop like a bunny!
After playing in the snow Bentley got a little cold! So I zipped him up in my coat. Isn't  his coat so cute with the fur around the hood!

More Mooso Thanksgiving fun!

This is my beautiful Grandma,cousins,aunts and my mom and I! We made a way cute decorative block. (You can see it in the picture above)My mom got all of the stuff from porters! We were having a girls craft night and we were loving it! The boys were downstairs having fun of their own...playing shooting games on the xbox!

There were 23 people that stayed at my parents house during Thanksgiving. It was a total Blast! So instead of sitting all of us into the dining room we decided to run 3 tables down the middle of the living room. It worked perfect!
These are the turkey cookies that zach and I made! We were so proud of them! They were not only cute but also very yummy!
And here are all the Mooso's eating a wonderful thanksgiving meal! Zach and I went out to menan earlier and had out thanksgiving at 1:00 there, then came down to my parents and had it again at 5. Both meals were amazing but we were sure full!
