Snow, snow, snow...

"I'll build a man of snow..." I love watching the White Christmas every year and hoping for snow on that wonderful morning! It is very late right now and as I sit and check my email it is quietly snowing outside. It has been snowing and then melting, off and on all day. I love the snow. It comes quietly and lights up even the darkest of nights. Speaking of night, I should "...get some shut-eye, go to sleep and dream of snow. Snow. Snow!"(have you figured out the song yet? Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney..and Danny K!)

We have survived the Thanksgiving gluttony! We spent the day at my parent's house with 15 other people(yikes!) and it was really fun. I always love putting on my apron and getting in to the cooking. It's too bad that my dad and my brother both had to work, poo-whoo. Jeremiah played out in the freezing cold wind until I made him come in! I have had the opportunity to catch up with some good friends and family and I'm ready for Christmas. Actually, I have already put up our tree and decorated much or our house! Jeremiah and Alison both "helped". now if it would just stop raining, we could play in all those beautiful leaves!

Ready, Set, EAT!

Thanksgiving is only a few days away! There is always so much to be thankful for. We are thankful for a few things: God, our family, friends, church, jobs, small group, football, falling leaves, coffee, vanilla creamer...:) We hope all of you and your families have a great holiday!

Seasons have definately changed...

It's been a few days since we've posted...sorry. In the last few days we haven't done too many exciting things. John has been busy working. I've been busy chasing the children! I was able to attend a scrapbooking retreat at Wallowa Lake last weekend and it was very refreshing! John promises he had a good time with the kids and it was obvious that the 'favorite' parent is John...Alison wanted nothing to do with me when I returned! Alison took her first steps the other night, of course while I was gone! She is cruising all over the place! We are getting ready for the holidays and we will be spending them with my parents and family. We had originally planned to go to the mountains with some friends to their cabin but circumstances changed! We hope everyone has a blessed holiday season this year. It will be wonderful to see all the many things God has planned for us in the coming months.

Oh Sweet Autumn!

I love the fall...have I mentioned that our family LOVES the fall? It is so funny how the weather looks so cold and windy and then you step outside and it is warm! I love it!
We have been good. The kids are getting over their colds..hopefully. Nothing else too exciting here, though!

Oh my, we had so much fun last night! It was Mom's birthday and so we headed over to their house for a little fun. We dressed the kids up for Nana and Papa and they had a blast. John took Jeremiah to a few other houses in the neighborhood and he loved it. We basically told him that since it was Nana's birthday we dressed up and were having a party where there was lots of candy! We had a really great time and he loved playing with our friends Katie and Kyle. Dan and Natalie came by with Cali and Cole and they all had such a good time. My Dad dressed up and looked like a cross between Flava Flav and a 70's basketball player! It was *classic*!
