These are some pictures of Abbey and Brandon from Christmas. They got a TON of presents. Santa must have thought they were good.
Abbey and Brandon playing with the guitar and microphone they got for Christmas. Who knows they could be the next American Idols. :)
Brandon is playing on his guitar at Ma's. She gave him this as one of his Christmas presents. He loved it.
Brandon was still playing on his guitar. He is so cute with when he is playing it and singing along with it.

Brandon when he first saw his John Deere tractor from Santa. He was so excited. That was all he wanted for Santa to bring him.
Brandon riding his John Deere tractor. This was definitely his favorite thing he got for Christmas. He loves to ride it.
Brandon smiling BIG for the camera. He usually never smiles right for the camera. I guess that is part of being a 3 year-old little boy.
Abbey at Ma's house during Christmas. She had just opened her scooter.
Brandon at Christmas time. He was waiting to open all of his presents. He is such a sweetheart.
This is Abbey playing with her basketball goal that Santa brought her. They woke up early and wanted to go outside about 7:45. Dennis was so excited to be up and playing that early. :)
Brandon was having a blast opening Christmas presents. It was so funny because when he opened a present that he liked, he didn't care to open anymore. He wanted to play with the one he had just opened.
Santa brought Abbey a basketball goal for Christmas. It was to big to bring in the house so he left her a note on a basketball to look outside. She is an awesome little basketball player.
We were all at my parents house one day and Brandon saw that they had a John Deere lawn mower. My dad was riding him around and it ran out of gas. They were both having a blast.
Dennis and I at Christmas on his mom's side of the family.
Brandon and Chloe (Dennis's niece) waiting to open Christmas presents. They are so cute together. Chloe can be so funny.
Abbey being silly with her trick set she got for Christmas. She has been playing tricks on everybody.

Brandon was opening presents at Ma's house. He was having a great time.

Abbey was opening presents at Dennis's with her grandmother, aunt, and cousins. She got TONS of presents!
This is my favorite picture of Brandon. I was watching them one night while Dennis was at work. He was playing in the bathtub and wanted me to take his picture. He is so sweet and precious.
Abbey was watching TV one night and Dennis took a picture of her. I love this picture because she looks so sweet.

I would like to share a recipe that I enjoy. My rommate thinks I am crazy because Dennis and I eat it all the time. It is very easy to make and doesn't take much time at all. It only calls for a few ingredients. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do.

Mexican Spaghetti

12 ounces dry spaghetti, uncooked
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 lb. ground beef
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes in sauce, undrained
2 cans (11 oz. each) whole kernel corn with red & green peppers (Mexicorn), undrained
1 can (7 oz.) diced green chiles, undrained
1/2 cup shredded Mexican-Style cheese

- Break pasta in half. Cook according to package directions.

- Prepare taco seasoning mix with the meat in large skillet according to package directions. Stir in tomatoes with their liquid, the corn with its liquid, and the green chilies. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

- Drain pasta; place in large bowl. Add meat mixture; mix lightly. Sprinkle with cheese.
