FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT

I just love Adam Sandler!!! I think he is my favorite male actor.
We went as a family, and met my sister and her boys too, tonight to see Bedtime Stories. It was a really good movie! It would be cool if you actually could tell a story and it come true. =)

Cool.... raining gumballs

DRIVING AROUND LOOKING AT CHRISTMAS LIGHTING

We drove around after supper tonight looking at all the Christmas lights and displays!
Some people really get creative and go all out! And I thought our porch was pretty. =)

This is Jim Cognion's house on cr 271 out by the Ethenol Plant.
He has alot of blow up displays, along with a cute santa on a farm tractor. His big side work garage was even lite up too. He is the guy that delivers our gravel for the driveway. He has a small hauling business on the side, as he is retired. Big display on the back of a house on Hay Avenue here in town
This is a Gingerbread house, which Tanner called it, on Hay Avenue too. This picture doesnt really do it justice, it is so beautiful!
Huge 3 house light display on cr24 - I think this one is the biggest around here??

DREW READING CHRISTMAS STORY TO ELLA

This evening when Drew got home from school, he said he brought a book home to read to Ella. It was called Cranberry Christmas. It was about cats.

Both the boys play well with Ella, atleast 90% of the time, like she's their lil sister. Sometimes she bugs them or gets in their way as they say. lol they even sound like brothers and sister with that comment!

How cute is this? She was so content.

Heres a little video
