Christmas time!

Tanner's day: Sat on Santa's lap, helped mom decorate the tree, then made a mess in my pants (for the fourth time, although this one was the worst).

We had a Christmas brunch this year.  There were lots of crafts for the kids to do, and a whole lot of breakfast casseroles to eat.

He really liked the bells on Santa's shirt. 

Jake had to go to the library after we came home, so Tanner and I decorated the tree.

Well, Tanner helped by being cute company.  He spent most of the time taking the ornaments off the tree and tasting them.

Here is a picture of him walking! Ok, standing, but he was in the middle of walking to the tree.  Not sure if that is a good thing or not.

And why are we in the bath tub with all of our clothes on?

 That's why!  (Note: this is not due to water in the bath tub... sick.)

All clean. And making a weird face.

Yes, it was a good day.

Tanner is cute

Well Mr. Tank took his first "steps" a few days before Thanksgiving.  It was pretty exciting! He walks more than just 2 steps now, but still spends more time on his hands and knees. No pictures here show him walking, but I will upload a video soon, hopefully.

Classic Tanner face.  He makes this when he thinks you should feel sorry for him.  It usually works.

Eating snickerdoodles on the ground. Yummy!

 So ya, this book is probably from the 80's, but for some reason, it's one of his favorites.  He always pulls it off the shelf and will sit on the ground turning the pages again and again.  I think he likes all the babies in it.


Went to Mom and Dad Keyes house for Thanksgiving.  I think there were at least 50 people there for Thanksgiving dinner.... it was pretty crazy, but really fun.  Sheila and Ryan came from Idaho and it was so fun to see them! The Schmutz family came too, and we all had a wonderful time..

Sister Lamb took family pictures for us and the Schmutz family.  We love them!

This one is my favorite

Used some apples we found outside in a pile for props.... and then for treats.

I like Tanner's expressions in these pictures.

Carly even made it into one.  She not only made it into this picture, but she is the center of attention.  Pampered dog.

 We went to Coupeville and made gingerbread houses.  Tanner was sleeping and Jake studying, so I went and took pictures.

I took a lot of pictures of Lacie Belle. She's just so cute!

The masterpiece...

They were on a date. Hanna's first date.

He loves books, and obviously has no idea what they are about.... or he likes princesses.
