When ever we go to Salmon, Aiden likes to drive the big brown ranch truck, while my dad feeds cows. My dad puts the truck in low and Aiden gets to steer it, while my dad throws hay bales off the back of the truck. Aiden is very proud of himself when ever he drives. I think one of his favorite parts of driving is honking the horn at the cows :)
Here is a video of Aiden driving. He is so serious!
Lance made an ice skating rink on my mom and dads ranch. It is actually really cute. He even put Christmas lights up all around it. We took Aiden ice skating one night and then later we all played broom ball. Which is quite dangerous, but fun. I can't even begin to count how many times Lance fell on the ice while playing. Good thing he is young :)
Aiden and Daddy! Heather and Lance!
Mom and dad!
Here is our game of broom ball. The guys were so aggressive and competitive we broke a few brooms while playing!
This was how we started off Christmas morning. Aiden checking his "trap" for Santa Claus. The last two years Poppy Verdell and uncle Lance have helped Aiden try to catch Santa. Last year he caught Santa's boot and this year he caught Santa's hat. Aiden was pretty excited!
Aiden and Addie playing with their presents from Santa. Addie loved her little push toy/stroller she got. Here are our Christmas pajamas this year.
Our dogs love Christmas almost as much as we do! Everyone in my family has pets so we always have the pets exchange names for Christmas. I know its a little silly but our dogs love it :) Here is a video of Spencer opening his gift.
So I have this funny story about Santa Claus and Aiden. Santa came to one of our playgroups a couple of days prior to us visiting Santa at the Muniz family's. Aiden usually loves Santa, but he ran off and hid. When I asked him what was wrong he told me he was "pretty sure he was on the naughty list." It was very funny. I assured him I thought he was in the clear and then we asked Santa just to make sure. Needless to say he was excited to see Santa at Matt and Angie's house.
This one was at our house with all the kids from our playgroup. We painted pumpkins, had punch with pretend spiders in it, and of course dressed up :)
This party was at the Downie family's. Aiden fell off the trampoline this night and landed on his head. So he had a huge red scab in the middle of his forehead for a couple of weeks. We told him it just matched his Buzzlightyear costume and looked like another button to push. He thought that was pretty funny. My little lady bug!
Here is Buzz with the red "button" on his head.
The McLarens had an adult only Halloween party that started after our kids were done trick or treating. This is Debbie, Tami, Me, Jim, and Ron getting ready for the party. Doesn't Ron make a a great Bret Michaels!
