Christmas Time!

We went up to Sunburst for Christmas this year. My kids were ready to go for about a month. This is right before we left. Carter was asking Laney if she was ready to go to the farm!
Ave wore this beautiful little jumper from Grandma Patsy to daycare the day we left. She kept singing about the candy canes on there. Everything's a song for Ave!
All the boys on Christmas Eve wore argyle. Grandma Diana bought her three grandsons (baby Kaden, Colten, and Carterman) sweaters, I think Nate was just lucky enough to wear one also!
There's three of the Barsness grandchildren: Breanne, Colten, and Kaden. They are great kids. Kaden kept us entertained just seeing what he would get in to! Breanne and Colten kept our kids busy all weekend which was wonderful and much appreciated!
If there ever were a picture to capture Avery's personality...I think this is it!
The Barsness girls in their Christmas Eve finery. They both had gorgeous dresses on!
My little nuts. I'm not sure what kind of face Carterman is making here. It's the three year old cheesy smile!
This one is pretty darn cute I must say! They were really good over the holiday. They're still running on tons of adrenaline from all their new toys. I can't get them to go to bed at night!
All five of the kiddos together. I think they kind of like eachother!
Avers looked beautiful, and she knew it. My mom found this fancy dress for her, and Diana found the cute sweater and tights. We will definitely have to get her in it again!
My boy's favorite thing about Grandma Bonnie's house is the stairs - this picture of him and Bre makes me laugh! Callie taught him to slide down on his butt. She of course had to go down too! They had some fun dinosaur egg hunting expeditions together.
Just another view of my little goof. Her smile is the funniest thing!
Christmas morning - yay! Santa brought Carter some Dinobot Transformers. Daddy helped him put all five of them together to form this Ultimate Cool Robot!
He was very good opening all his presents. We had to keep him going though because everything he opened he wanted assembled right away so he could play! He kept saying "I love it" about all his gifts.
Kaden had a very good time ripping paper and playing with the boxes. I think every 15 month old loves that!
Ave was very silly with her stuff. She kept saying "Oh my goodness!" and "Another box!". She had to stop and read her Princess and the Frog book. She looks so little in this picture!
Carter was so funny with Uncle Phil or Uncle Pheel as he calls him. He told Phil he had a problem, he could not see any cows with his new binoculars! Luckily Phil, Nate, and Kyle took him out for a little adventure. He grabbed a carrot for the horse.
He is one spoiled man. He got to sit on Lucky. I guess he told Phil that Lucky was a little big for him! He does look pretty tiny on that big horse. He loved it!
He was really excited about getting in the tractor too. Nate made sure he got in the green John Deere one. They have a new red tractor, and Nate's not a fan!
She had another spectacular look for Christmas Day. This little skirt was so cute. I wish I would have got a picture of her standing up in it. She's here with her new hippo pillow pet. Carter got a puppy one. They were big hits and quite handy for the trip home! Thanks everyone - we had a great time!
We had another Christmas when we came back to Butte on Monday. I should have taken more pictures, but I was tired and lazy! Anyway, this is the infamous Stinky the Garbage Truck that Carter asked Santa for. Luckily, Grandma and Grandpa Burgman found it for him. It is pretty cool, and Carter sure looks happy!
 When we got home we still had to put together a couple presents from Kyle and I. Carter helped Daddy put together Ave's writing desk with his new tools from Erica and Landon. His new pajamas from them were hilarious too! Daddy also put together Carter's Cars GeoTrax train set. It's awesome. Hope everyone had a great Christmas!
