Christmas in Kansas...Part 2

Mason and the train...He is starting to like trains more and more.
Still Opening... 
Mema opening a gift. 
Mason saying "ooooh" when he saw mommy's Pandora bracelet.
Heath picked out a Pandora bracelet for me, and he picked
out all the charms for it. It is so pretty! 
Heath opening his insulated hunting bibs....
the good ones for the crazy cold Kansas weather. 
Mason hugging his pillow pet. 
Mason's wooden block set.  
Mason didn't want to keep opening gifts.
He wanted to play with the one he opened.
When you tried to give him another gift,
he thought you were taking away the one he had. 
Hiding behind all the gifts. 
After all the excitement.
Maci dog.
We fixed lunch on Christmas Day.
Heath deep fried a turkey. Yummy.
The plate rack every kitchen should have.
I love this thing...

Long weekend.

The weekend just seemed so long.
Mason had a rash all over his body.
It was a side effect from a shot he got last week.
It wasn't bad...just little red dots.
We just stayed around the house,
just in case the rash was something
else. Although, I was pretty sure
 that was the cause.
I don't know why the weekend
seemed so long.
it's because
is this weekend!!

Mason loves the iPhone.
Then we played with chalk.

Marshmallow Snowman.
Items needed.
I have been putting the glue on the paper
before I start the craft. 
Mason was checking everything out...
He thought about sticking the marshmallows on the glue... 
Eating the marshmallows are so much better!
He thought this was so funny...
oh well, we had fun! 
We didn't make the snowman,
but we did have fun-
eating the marshmallows, and we had
a snowball fight with the marshmallows.

Fish Decorations.

Friday night, we started working on the next craft
 because I knew the paint would have to dry.
I put the freezer box in our basement so we would
have a place to paint.
I drew a Christmas tree on a piece of white paper.
Then I let Mason have fun painting.
(It wouldn't have been as fun using green paper!)
He had to have both paint brushes.
At first, he did dots.
Then I helped him spread the paint all over the paper.
This morning we finished the tree.
Since Mason likes fish right now, I used
foam stickers of fish and turtles.
He put all the foam stickers on the tree.

Mason's Christmas Tree.
(-Make sure you buy washable paint, it comes off super easy!
-Pour out what paint you think you need,
 then pour 3/4 of that back in the bottle...
paint goes a long way!
-Be patient, let the kids enjoy it.)

Candy Cane.

Today, we started making our Christmas crafts!
There are a lot of simple crafts for young ones to make.
Our first craft is the
(Items: Red Construction Paper, Cotton Balls, Glue)
I put the glue on the construction paper.
Then Mason placed the cotton balls on the paper. 
He thought he needed more glue. 
The poem to read with this activity.
Look at the Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me
White is for my Savior
Who's sinless and pure!
"J" is for Jesus My Lord, that's for sure!
Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd

to the woods.

Friday morning the weather was warmer. Heath
decided to take Mason to the woods
when he went to get his trail camera.
Here is Mason exploring.
Telling Mommy about it. 
Still exploring. 
It was a family event...

Walking with daddy.
