Trying to get a picture of the kids, but of course, Silas would not cooperate:

One of my favorite ornaments - one of the kids handprints made into snowmen:

Notice the empty mug glasses in front of the boys - the reason Sammy wanted to go to Ron's for his birthday was for Root Beer and in a frosty mug :)
Hope everyone had a wonderful December, as well!

Silas woke up crying from his nap the other day, and when I went in the bedroom to find out what was wrong w/ him, this is what I found:

He had gotten into Sadie's purse and found her "Flarp" and fell asleep w/ it in his hands. It got all over his clothes and the sheets.

It took a couple of washings and a lot of pulling it off, but it finally came out. I'm just glad he didn't try to put it in his mouth and eat it!

Fleece Tie Blankets

The girls have been busy making fleece blankets this past week. Their Aunt Sue taught them how to make these over Thanksgiving and they thought it would be fun to make some for their friends. Thanks for the idea, Aunt Sue! We've had a lot fun doing making them and I thought they turned out really cute! I'm sure their friends are going to love snuggling up in them.

This Christmas

Our kids have had a tradition of drawing names and buying a gift for that brother or sister. This year, they decided to combine their money and buy meals and shelter for the homeless at The John 3:16 Mission. Here they are with their daddy deciding what they wanted their money to go towards:

I am very proud of them for wanting to bless others this year!

Charlie Brown Christmas Dance

The kids were being awfully noisy upstairs a few days ago. It sounded like they were stomping and jumping and dropping things. It wasn't until I found my camera later that night, that I realized what they had been doing up there. I found a video that they had taken of themselves doing the Charlie Brown Dance. In case you can't remember what that dance looks like, here is a clip of Charlie Brown's Christmas:

And, here is the kids version. You may have to watch it a couple of times to catch what every one is doing, but pay close attention to Silas in the far right. It is too funny:
