Merry Christmas!
I made three posts today so scroll down to catch up. We made an awesome gingerbread house with my mom my two exchange students plus a friend. I love Gingerbread houses. The kids loved the candy.
The girls went to an asian market and came home all fired up to make real chinese food we ate egg rolls for three days straight. they were awesome.

Christmas eve dinner. We showed up at my parents house only to find their stove was broken. You gotta love pictures ability to freeze a moment in time( weather or not it is worth remembering is a different subject)


After having a PlayStation for 2 years and treating it only as a blue ray player my parents finally bought a game. Here are my parents singing . And me and Dave rockin' the dancing.

Christmas morning. Lily got all 7 of the Disney princesses.
And a horse. She was in princess heaven

Jensen got guess what? TRAINS!


The girls makin' Christmas breakfast
Lily got her presents then went down to the fire stripped her own clothes off then began stripping her barbies. Oh I love this girl.






Charley was the little scavenger. She just went around with her new walking skills picking up interesting things to eat. She loved it.
Grandma and Grandpa McDonald got the kids art kits. Jensen pulls his out at least three times a day.


Lily lives the scissors and globs of glue.

It was a "super" Christmas

Charley Walks!

And climbs stairs and goes down them. And a fun time was had by all.

November!
I know I'm behind so here is a brief summary.
Dave's brother from Illinois, and sister from Utah came over for Thanksgiving it was AWESOME. We had a ton of fun just chillin out. My two sister and laws and I and my exchange students did do an all night black Friday shopping trip that was CRAZY. These are pics from the train show.
