New Riding toys

The kids love their new riding toys...well sorta. Hayden loves his F-150 that has a real FM radio. Abigail got a Toyota FJ cruiser that does NOT have a radio, which apparently is a big deal. She will not stay out of Hayden's truck. She loves turning the radio on and off. The funny part is that Mr. Santa wanted to get Abigail a Barbie Jeep that had a real radio but Mrs. Santa wanted the Toyota. So Santa brought the Toyota, and Abigail would much rather have had the one with the radio. Guess Mrs. Santa will sit back and let Santa do his job next year, he knows what he's doing!!

Christmas Jammies

I love getting matching Christmas pajamas for my kids every year. It is one of my favorite things about the holidays. Now getting a sweet-loving picture of the kids in their matching pajamas is a different story...

Christmas Playdate

Hayden's friends from school came over yesterday for a playdate. We baked and decorated holiday sugar cookies. He also gave them their Christmas presents that he personally picked out. They all had a blast!

Build a Bear

Today Hayden had his first Build a Bear experience. He's wanted to do it for a while but we are never out at the mall for him to have that opportunity. He loved it and will want to do it many more times, I'm sure. He built an extremely soft doggie, which he named Patches, and dressed in a Fishermen outfit. Too cute!

Rottweiler for sale

I have subconsciously failed to mention 2 members of the Travis family, Oliver and Sarasota. Oliver is our pom-a-poo (that weighs 5 lbs) who I've had since I was 17. Sarasota is our rottweiler (that weighs 100 lbs) who we got about 3 years ago.  She is very large and stays inside, which I never experienced growing up. So it is something I have had to work on. She likes to give me things to do and messes to clean up, because I don't already have enough things to do!! This is the mess I got greeted with today when I came home...

Sorry it has been so long!! We moved our room and therefore computer around so no internet connection yet. Since we have the internet on our phones, we haven't been in a huge hurry to hook the internet back up. And since I'm not very computer savvy it has taken me this long to figure out how to blog from my phone!!!

So here is a couple of pictures of Emmaline. She is almost 4 months old now. She is simply amazing! She just eats, sleeps, and smiles. We are truly blessed and love her so much!
