This was the most entertaining part of the morning for Luke - Maverick playing with his new toy (that's filled with catnip)... it was hilarious to watch these two! :o)
We had lots and lots of Christmas fun... stay tuned for more pictures soon!

PS- I know you can't click on the picture to enlarge it in this post- blogger was being weird so I used flickr to upload pictures. ;)

This silly girl and I made and decorated Christmas tree cupcakes the other day. We had a blast!

Decorating cupcakes takes a lot of concentration...

....all done!

Of course the best part is eating them!

Think she enjoyed it? ;)

Thought I'd throw in this one of Luke too... cause it's AWESOME!

EmJ helped me decorate the tree... it was awesome because now all the "Luke friendly" ornaments are on the bottom. :o) She loved it!

Proud of her sweet tree!

EmJ lookin' cute before her first Christmas program!!

"Joy to the World!"

Love the little smirk ;)

How incredible is Christmas through the eyes of a child?

I love these pictures... you may just be seeing more like this soon. :o)

We just had some fabulous family come visit... there were lots of people who loved to take pictures there, so I didn't take as many as usual. But, here are some shots I loved. This is Janae and Luke... they love each other!


My fantastic Aunt Janie and me... love her!!!

Luke fell asleep on Nana... holding her finger. Precious.

I absolutely love this picture of my awesome Grandpa. Love it.

We all know this girl loves to color...

...and she's teaching her brother too.

Stinkin' cute!

Thanksgiving in Kansas!

 This year we got to go to Kansas for Thanksgiving and boy, did we have a blast! :o)

We had tons of fun, played a lot, laughed a lot, ate a lot... all the things you do at Thanksgiving! I wasn't the best about taking pictures, but here are some from our fun trip!

These 2 rocking chairs provided lots of entertainment!

How cute is this kid?! (even with a bruise on his head) :o)

Jeff and I got to go on a date night while we were there... YAY!

I know this isn't the best picture ever, but we sure had fun hanging out with Kir and Carson and Majkin! :o)

EmJ and Gram

Jeff, Aunt Di, and sleepy Luke

Playing with Grandma!

EmJ and Colton on Thanksgiving wearing the awesome turkey hats Loralee made them!

Luke in his turkey hat

Aww... my little turkeys!

Highlight of the trip for EmJ... :o)

She was laughing so hard... it was awesome!

She even got a chance to drive (which was hilarious!)

Colton, Cami, EmJ, and Luke
(not too bad for 4 kids ages 4 and under!)

Grandpa and Grandma with their awesome grandkids!

She makes her daddy (and Grandpa!) proud!


At the airport... which was an adventure in itself cause we were delayed almost 2 hours. But, we made it (thanks to Grandma for staying and helping entertain!).

We had such a fabulous time in Kansas and were so glad we could go. I'm bummed that I didn't get good pictures of the kiddos with Aunt Stacey - they had so much fun with her. EmJ even got to spend the night with her... which she, of course, loved! We also hung out with Travis a lot, but he managed to stay out of pictures too. Pictures or not, we had a great time with our family and friends and are anxious to see them again! How thankful and blessed we are!
