We had Anthony's family get-together this year at Brian and Cora's. We had a fabulous dinner, and did a 'white elephant' gift exchange. The kids loved playing with their cousins, and the adults had a good time visiting.
The girls playing in Ashley's 'house'. The crawl space beneath the stairs has become her play house. It's super cute. Even the boys had to check it out!
Best friends. The girls love playing together.

Most of the rest of the pictures turned out too dark to post, but we did have a great time!
On Christmas Day, we went to Jeremy and Donna's house for dinner. It was great to spend time with everyone and just be together. I had to work, so we had to leave early, but we still had a great time.... and ate WAY too much food!

My momma and me
How I love getting together with my whole family. It's amazing to think that just 10 years ago, Anthony and I were engaged, no one else was married, and we all just gathered in my parents' front room. How a few short years has changed things!
I love seeing how happy my parents are when the whole family is together.... all 20 of us!!!
We celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary in May. We live in Minot, North Dakota. Anthony is on the ministerial staff at our church, Apostolic Faith Church, and enjoys playing the guitar. Candice is a Registered Nurse in Pediatrics. We have 4 kids- Talon Shade, Kaitlyn Michelle, Nolan James, and Natalie Danielle. We have 2 miniature Schnauzers- Kiki and Kallie. We love spending time together as a family!
