Christian in December

We've had some great reports from Christian about the ups and downs of serving the Lord in Texas. Most of the reports are really good.

He has a great companion and evidently the people really love him. Who wouldn't?!!

Here are some pictures from this month (December 2010).

Kathryn's First School Christmas Program

Kathryn and her schoolmates did a great job singing today!
They knew the songs and the hand movements. I think I counted 6 full songs that the 4 year olds needed to know.

It was a really fun group to watch!

The FIRST of our Snow Days-December is COLD

ICY Days!!!

This is what happens when big brother has a shovel and little sis LOVES the snow

Kathryn "helped" Michael shovel the driveway and then
Michael covered Kathryn in a snow pile
Michael and Kathryn built the first snowman of the season and then destroyed it
and then got in a snow fight
Lots of Screaming, throwing, laughing and COLD bodies

Recreating the North Pole

While Mommy is very busy making cakes:

Evidently my "helper" decided to recreate the North Pole while I was making a couple cakes tonight. I caught her just short of putting sugar "rain" in her hair as she sang.

At least we were both happy for the needed time frame!

She is a Reindeer Graduate!

So it's no secret that Mommy and Daddy LOVE Kathryn's pre-school at St. Michael's.
Last week was Reindeer School and Kathryn did all kinds of neat stuff some of which was to make this adorable t-shirt, make reindeer food for Christmas Eve and in the end come home with her graduation certificate.
We're very proud parents of this little graduate.

Thanksgiving In Utah

We had a great visit to Utah/Park City for Thanksgiving weekend and an additional couple of days.

We played with
cousins, ate good food, enjoyed some great snow, participated in Iron Chef and played a crazy game together!! So many funny moments and great times with our family.

We are truly grateful for the opportunity to be together.

The Winter Season is upon Us!
