White Christmas

 This is what we woke up to this morning... a beautiful blanket of snow covering the ground!
Snow can accumulate fast around here. It's so exciting to actually be getting a white Christmas!
Ready for Christmas

We got surprised with a hug box from Oregon. Grandpa and Grandma sent presents. The kids were so excited to open it!
 Presents for everyone!
 It's starting to snow! The trees are my favorite. They look like they came out of a painting!

AFC Christmas Program

The kids singing in their Sunday School program. 
Kaitlyn got a solo. She did really good!
 Talon getting into the motions!
 Then there's always those couple of kids that make up their own motions!
 Having fun with my new camera. My baby boy. What a handsome guy!

This year, we had Thanksgiving at our house.  The unfinished basement proved to be plenty of room to spread out. Walt and Rachel came with their family from Minnesota, and Chad and Tori and their family were here, along with Jess and Ruth's family and Mom and Dad.
It was a full house and we had a great time all being together. 

Friends from AZ!

Chad and Tori came to visit us. We got to spend Thanksgiving together. We had so much fun. The kids loved playing together, and had a difficult time saying goodbye. It was great to get to meet their two littlest ones.
Miss Lindsey. What a doll!
 Wyatt and Natalie got along great. One would have thought they had know each other forever. They hugged and held hands, and she had him playing with dolls in no time. What an adorable little guy. 
 Kaitlyn and Daddy
 Kaitlyn and Alyssa. How she has grown. Hard to believe the last time we saw her she was 3... and looked exactly the same! The kids seemed to pick up right where they left off... playing with dolls, coloring, and telling stories.
 Talon has always loved Uncle Chad.
 Aunt Tori and Lindsay. It was so good to get to stay up late and catch up. 
Seemed like old times.
