Christmas in Brief

Yes, I am still here.  Life has been very full over the last couple months.  Sadly, I am not going to catch you up other to say Makayla turned 8, we celebrated Thanksgiving, Brittney had a birthday, and then we celebrated Christmas.  Here are some pictures from Christmas.

The above picture is the one on our Christmas card.

We first spent several hours at Ted and Brenda's.  Here is Bailee with her cousin, Payton, who is 12.  She is so ready to be a part of the teenage group.

Sammy with Payton's little brother, Elias.  He really liked Sam that night.

Brenda made all the granddaughters purses, so we wanted to get a picture.  Brenda is getting them lined up.  Check Bailee out in the back.

It snowed on Christmas Eve.  Our kids headed straight outside.

The kids at Pam and Mike's on Christmas Eve.  I am taking this picture from a seated position, but do you see how tall Sam is getting.

I love this picture of Sam.

Sam and Aliah

Makayla got a great red dress.  I wish I had gotten a picture of the whole dress.

This is Makayla with Ava.  Isn't she cute?  And, oh my goodness, she is a character.  Just watching her was fun.

Luken with his Iron Man arc reactor.  He love it Uncle Jake and Aunt Randi - one of his favorite gifts.

Both these pictures are from Christmas Day.  We missed those of you who could not join us.
