Christmas with the Miners'

Since mom has to work the whole week of Christmas and New Years we did our Christmas on Saturday. It was a lot of fun and I think everyone was happy with what they got.

our tree and piles of gifts

This was the first gift of the night. I decided that I wanted to get Austin a new puppy for Christmas. Well since you can't really wrap a puppy I wrapped up some dog food, the dishes, leash, and collar and gave it to Austin. He was a little confused.

Then Lillie pointed out to him that Adam was holding a puppy and then it all made sense. We got this little guy from Tammy Werner and his name is Bolt. He is ornery and fits Austin so perfectly.

Austin wanted to play with Bolt instead of opening up any more gifts.

But he made time
June made out pretty good too.
She is really liking fashion designing stuff...this is one of the many gifts she got to do that.
Her new Tinkerbell statue

Hunter who I think enjoyed the night quite well...and below is Belle tearing in to one of her gifts.

As a gift for the whole family we got Guitar Hero Rock band for the Wii and the kids were excited.

Randy and "little" Dre.

story of my life

We finally got the dining room and living room painted and am so glad. We still have flooring and trim to do but I can live with that. The pics don't show how good everything turned out but I tried.

After we got it painted Friday the kids got to put up the tree and Adam hung up my lights and Austin was just in love. He would sit by the tree and just look at it for hours.

Last Monday was the kids' Christmas program and I thought they did a wonderful job. I didn't get a lot of pics because I was running the video camera and the digital camera.

My little girl looking so big

Austin is in the second row from the bottom third from left. He was such a character. At one point he turned around and was singing to his class. I will try to post more tomorrow of our Christmas with the Miner clan but till then Merry Christmas.

this looks like snow to me...

Adam and had a bet to what the weather was doing....I said snow and he said it's ice. I texted everyone asking their opinion and no one had my back. Everyone wrote back saying ice....call me crazy but I still say snow. I will try to post more pics later of my new dining room and living room, and at work one of our houses was set in Culbertson and Randy got pics of it also, so i will try to get them on here to show what we do all day.

Progress is made...

Well we are finally progressing on the house. I am a couple of hours away from Austin's room being completely painted. Austin was a big help and had so much fun getting to paint his own room...

Once June finally got home she helped also and she too had a ball

one finished wall..... I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

talking to santa

This last weekend we went to Wal-Mart and Santa was there taking pictures with Mrs. Clause. This is the first time Austin has ever sat on Santa's lap and when they were getting their candy Mrs. Clause came over just laughing. I asked what was going on and she said, "Well your daughter would like a rock polisher but I think it's going to be a little hard to get your son what he wants." So of course I had to ask what he wanted and her reply was just priceless. "He wants a baby brother." Then she lost it laughing again. After we got home Santa was here in Culbertson and the kids told him again what they wanted and Austin had the same reply except he added a video game. Oh the things kids say.
