Merry Christmas!
It was so nice to have Christmas in our own home and with a TREE! Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Don came over to open presents. It is nice to have Don aroundfor a little while before he heads out again for another tour with the Marines.

Lily was the first to wake up, all she wanted to do was snuggle with Grandpa.

Good Morning. This is the stunned pre-presents "what are all of you staring at me for" look. . Lily got a glow-worm from Grandma McDonald. She loves it!
Jensen got lots of trains. He was so happy
Grandma Barrand got her a little purse with old beads. She loves being a girl.
Boy stuff!
Daddy and Jensen playing with the new train set. I made Christmas dinner. It turned out really well. Lily helped me make the french silk pie.

Hey! we were so excited that we say you at church, crazy, and random, I was totally excited to see you guys and then the next day I got strep and ouy insurance doesn't work out of state, then everybody else got strep including extended family along with horrible colds and ear infections. It was amazing! Hope you guys are doing well. Happy New Year!!

Geez, you're kids keep getting so big! It just reminds me that my kid is probably growing just as fast but I don't want to acknowledge it. Anyways, hope you guys are doing well!

Hi Dan, I think you are on vacation or getting back from vacation or going on vacation soon... so I hope things are going well for you. I missed seeing you when I was passing through Denver last week, hopefully we can get together soon, like when Tiana gets married next month, right?? Just let me know.

Cool Christmas background. Christmas at your house was awesome! It's amazing what 4 years a tree with ornaments, a nice meal and 2 adorable kids will do to make a wicked sweet Christmas! We are so glad to be your neighbors.
