We went up through the tunnel. First time ever for my kids. They loved it. Then we hiked the Overlook trail. It is only 1 mile round trip, but I'm not sure if the kids could have taken much more. I guess we will have to start practicing longer distances.
Oh, and I forgot my camera so these are phone pictures, hope they turned out ok.
Cohen's contribution to the day: "I hate hiking, it makes me to sweaty and tired."
Future gamer for sure.

I just finished reading Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, and I have to say it was pretty good. I guess it is in the Twilight type genre, but I feel like this book has way more potential and does not include vampires. It's the first book of what will be a series. Read it. It was a quick fun read.
PS: Cohen's quote of the day: "I got to pick the movie because I am the king of cute." Who's telling him this stuff?

The kids gingerbread house.
Elyza's Christmas concert for her choir class.....she loves this class! It is so much fun and they put on a pretty good show.
Our Christmas projects this year.
This ottoman Alan and I had my brother in law Jesse make the frame for, then we upholstered ourselves. It has lasted like 4 years, and that seemed like long enough. It needed to be recovered, but we just decided to have a new one made.
This is what my living room looked like for about 1 week while our furniture was away getting a face lift. It was pretty stressful looking through all the fabrics and trying to decide what to do. I am going to have this furniture for a long time, so it was scary. But, I came across one print that I loved, and the rest fell into place.

I am really excited about christmas this year. We put our tree up the week of Thanksgiving, I have all of my shopping done, we went to see Santa, and I have tons of activities planned for the kids. We are decorating ornaments for Grandma tonight, then next monday we will be decorating a gingerbread house, we will hopefully get out to see the Tuachan Nativity, and our Family Christmas party will be really fun. ( Elyza has to sing a song, so we need to work on that too.) Hope everyone has an excellent holiday season. Hopefully I'll get around to posting before Christmas.

I finally got around to recovering my kitchen chairs. I bought the fabric several months ago, but just recently got it done. As you can see, the old covers, which were only suppose to be for christmas lasted 2 years. They are really gross. I also got fabric for my zebra ottoman. It is really dirty too, but, I haven't had time to do those ones yet. I'll let you know. When that gets done.
