What an amazing Christmas. We went up to the cabin on the 23rd for a couple of days. I took McCall skiing with Amber, Tony, Scott, and Grandpa. She did an incredible job. It was so much fun skiing together. I can't wait to go again!
McCall plowing down the hill...Yeah!
The group on Christmas Eve up at the cabin. We were sad that Ash and Josh weren't here. I am sure that we had more fun than Kayaking down some river in Chile. j/k. But we missed you guys.
Spencer and his buddy uncle scotty.
McKinley LOVING her Christmas presents! The girls each got as McCall said "just what she has always wanted." McKinley wanted a teaset and a craft, McCall wanted a Samantha doll and a camera. Spencer just wanted to eat the paper. We had a fabulous day! We can't wait to see grandma and grandpa Dunn when they come up!

So... It was time for a change. I decided what the heck we will try brown hair, only it turned out to be DARK brown hair. (don't mind the photo's I am lacking on my self portrait skills.
I have had funny response to the new look.
Mike... Wow, that's dark!
McCall... Mom i love your hair, it is so creative
McKinley... Mom you look just like Gabriella (from H.S. Musical) not the look i was going for.
Mom...I almost don't recognize you, but i like it.
The new me.
So ash... What do you think?

What a week this has been. We have seriously hit the holiday "crazys" at our house. The past week was filled with McKinley's preschool program, McCall's program, Grandpa Joe in the hospital, the Mormon Tab Choir concert, Jazz game, parties, shopping, church meetings, scouts, etc. etc. etc.
And to think we still have another fun-filled week before christmas.
McCall before her Christmas Program. Her Kindergarten program was at night and was probably the best program that I've seen. It was amazing and McCall was sooo excited, and did such a great job!
McCall Leaving for her program in her new coat. She LOVES this coat because she thinks that she looks "grown-up" in it!

I LOVE kids in hats! Aunt Ashley made herself busy knitting when Spencer was born. She made him the most adorable blue and brown sweater, and three hats. She is an awesome knitter and I love the hats. Today when we went out I had him all bundled up, and he just looked up at me with those big eyes under the hat. I knew right then that I had to get some photos with the hat.
He is such a happy baby!

What can we say... Winter is here. We woke up this morning to 6 inches of snow and it was fabulous. There is nothing that makes the holiday's seem quite as nostalgic. The girls had the perfect day building a snowman, making forts, and best of all snowball fights with dad. We ended this great day with mugs full of Hot Chocolate followed by the "Santa Claus" movie. We LOVE Christmas time at our house !
McCall making snowballs
McKinley is bundled. A little "Christmas Story" in terms of clothes, but cute nonetheless.
Playing in the Snow. What more could we want!

We have had the perfect Fall. We love being outside and enjoying
the weather. A couple of Saturday's ago the temperatures outside were
a beatiful 75 degrees. Mike dug out his grandpa Dunn's old fireman's rope and decided
to put it to good use. He made a rope swing in one of the walnut trees out
front. Ever since the girls have been in Heaven!
Our fearless McKinley
McCall LOVES the swing.
Katie came up and enjoyed the new swing.
We had a great time!

Halloween is always a hit. This was the first year where the kids really wanted lots of candy. Much to mom's dismay. McCall was a devil and McKinley an angel. (Kind of ironic, it should be the other way around) Spencer was a monkey. Although Halloween night he slept through the whole thing and didn't even get into his costume. We were combating an ear infection.
We had a great time... Visited the Johnson's, Neighborhood hot dog roast, trick or treating with the Greens and the Jacksons. What more could you want!
Well it's official... I am starting a blog! After promising photos and updates of the kids for months and really not delivering, I am hoping that this might help. I am not setting myself up with high expectations to be a Fantastic blogger. But with most of our family out of state, anything is an improvement. So the Dunn motto will be "short and sweet." We hope that you will enjoy following our crazy lives!
