Christmas program/ Santa

Aden's Christmas program at Little School was
great! The 4 year old class sang "Rockin around the
Christmas Tree" and "Holly Jolly Christmas".

The boys with Santa after the program.

Aden tells Santa what he wants him to bring...

Austin's still not sure about this whole thing!

Merry Christmas from the Byrd's

Send your own ElfYourself eCards

Pip is back....

Pip is back!!! This is our second year to
use "Elf on a Shelf". We named our elf Pip.
He is sent by Santa to keep watch on boys and
girls until Christmas. Our elf comes on December 1
and will go back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
Pip flies back to the North Pole every night to report
to Santa Claus. So every morning he's in a new spot for the
boys to find him! So much fun, for all of us!!

Here is Pip the first morning he came
to our house this year. Austin actually found him on
the light fixture above the stairs!
The boys are so excited about finding Pip!
They just cannot figure out how he got in to our
house and why they can't touch him!!

We are Thankful....

We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving this year!
We were able to celebrate with both sides of our family!
We are so thankful for all of our many, many blessings!

Our family....

My sweet boys....

their trophy!
So proud of his trophy....

We were excited to go to our 1st hockey game of the
season! It was Austin's 1st hockey game and he LOVED it!
The Preds won in a double overtime shoot-out!
We made it through the entire game...it was GREAT!!!

Halloween Night...

Mommy and Daddy with our two little indians...

The boys with some of our neighbors...

I loved watching them trick-or-treat together!
Aden was so sweet to help Austin, although he
picked it up very quickly! Aden would ring the
door bell and Austin would knock!!

Carving Pumpkins and Baking Cupcakes

I love this picture of Aden taking care of Austin, &
pushing his sleeves up before they start carving!

Tools in hand and ready to carve!!!

"Now what is it we're getting out of here?!"

"Yuck! This is what we're getting out Austin,
now stand back and watch!!!"

"Where can I help??!!"

Sweet Daddy helping the boys carve their pumpkin!!

The carved pumpkin...didn't they do a GREAT job?!

Aden helping mommy bake Halloween cupcakes.
Aden loves to help in the kitchen, whether it be cooking or cleaning up!

Aden's decorated cupcakes....YUMMY!!!

Dollywood was GREAT! We had SO much fun!
It was all of the kids first trip to an amusement park,
and they all had a blast!! They were all such troopers
all day long! I have to say, I think the adults had
just as much fun as the kiddos!
Our family at Dollywood...
Mommies and the "big boys" having some fun!

Aden and Elan were cracking us up with their maps
of the park! We knew just where to go with these two
giving directions! Ha!

Aden and Emery LOVING the playground!

Can you believe these 2 are big enough to ride all by themselves??!!
I think they would have ridden for days! :)

My favorite picture....everybody looking and smiling! :)

The guys on the pulley ride!

Dark picture, but I had to post this one! I still
cannot believe that April go me on this old wooden
roller coaster! I hate roller coasters and I hate heights!
What was I thinking???
I was really glad that I did it once it was over and what
better person to ride with than one of your best buddies!!

We had another wonderful time Jay and April! We are so
blessed by your friendship and look forward to next year!
