When we returned from Iowa, we traveled with our Hope Group to Caldwell to cut down our Christmas Tree. We have never cut our own, so we were really excited!
It took awhile, but we finally found the perfect one and proceeded to cut it down. Dakota and Kye drug it up the road and a nice man attached it to our roof.
We have decided to make this a new yearly tradition in the Stephens' household! The tree lasted a lot longer and the experience was so neat! Thank you Fernando and Cathe for inviting us along!!!
Let the Decorating Begin!!!Kru hanging his yearly ornament..

Kru was WAY into Christmas this year and that included making cookies! He also loves sprinkles and his cookies were over the top with sprinkles. Yum??!!Do you see all of the "stuff" on the table!?!

Christmas in Hot Springs with Pappy & GranmaWe enjoyed the chillier temperatures up in Arkansas. The boys had fun playing in the backyard with Stephen.
We also had a blast playing Guitar Hero III while we were there. In fact, our forearms were sore and so were my fingers.
It is probably a good thing that we don't have this at our house!!! It is very addictive! And fun! I don't think that I closed my mouth the whole time! Go Kari!!!! My favorite, ZZ Top's, LaGrange, Darrin's, Poison's, Nothing But A Good Time.
We ROCK!!!! (well, Darrin more than me, but I rock too!!!)
