Christmas Party

Last Sunday we went to our annual Christmas party with our connection group from church. Someone came up with the idea to have a 'tacky Christmas attire' theme. Due to security reasons I can not disclose where my sweater came from, but I fit right in! Thanks Angela, Matt, Erin and Zach, we had a blast.

Shiloh Christmas Program

Yesterday was Shiloh's annual Christmas program. They always put on such an awesome program. This year Ethan was actually in the first row, so we were able to get some super cute pictures and video tape him too. They did an awesome job with their songs and motions. How stinkin' handsome is this first picture!?

Finally Christmas

It finally feels like Christmas in our house. Yes, Paul started to put lights up weeks ago. People even thought we were weird for putting them up so soon; now we are weird because the are just now on. Well, most of them anyway. Maybe tomorrow he'll finish the rest and I can post a pic of how awesome our house looks with lights.  When we got home from Sams Club today, B-squared had put the tree up and gotten all the decorations down from the attic. I was EXCITED! Here are a few pictures of our tree with the ham in front of it.

These are from this evening out playing with Daddy's RC car. Courtney loves to drive it, but just goes full throttle (oh, about 55 mph). It is quite comical to watch.

thankful for friends

How blessed we are to have such great friends. Since we've moved to Arkansas we have had 2 Thanksgivings all alone and one where Paul's family was in town. I was not looking forward to another Thanksgiving with just the 5 of us. Thanksgiving is just more to that to me. Growing up there was always so many people, so much food, football, games and talking. When it's just the 5 of us, it's not much different than a regular day except there is a really big mess to clean up! So, when Shanna invited us over for Thanksgiving I was so excited! I didn't want to be a big ol' dork though so I played it cool. :-P Anyway, we are so Thankful for them, and thank God that he put them in our lives. Here are some pics from our day...

Brady, sooo stinkin' cute!
Courtney pushing Brady around. (in the good way)
The 'I'm innocent' smile.
Paul brought his RC cars, a jump and a jealous time for James.
Even Shanna joined in the rc fun. (i think she secretly wants one)
Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving without football.
...and a T I R E D baby.

Angela: This is purely for you. I saw this and thought, "now, that is all Angela" :-)
