Peter, thanks for stopping by. You know who you are. Thanks for the good times. Thanks for the memories. We all miss you and wish you would come home for a visit!
To our hilariously fun cousins: Jamie, Kara, Jodi, Jason, Marquell, Janae, Baby A, Baby B, Christina, Rick, Amber, Sadie, Kayla, and Anna... thanks for the great times today. I just don't know what we would do without you... and everyone else of course! We love you all over and over and would choose you for our family any day! (Ahem...don't forget to comment!)
And of course hello to all our other friends who visit this up-and-coming blog... may all your days be filled with chocolate kisses, low gas prices and warm sunshine!
PS. Cuzs... Thought you'd like to know that I got me a dancing partner - thanks for the worries! :)

We are all so excited about an opportunity a dear friend is affording for us... ballroom dancing lessons for the four of us older kids! We were sooo excited when she called, but we still had to wait for the verdict from the big-guy! (a.k.a. Dad) Below is his answer... and our response!
Thanks you guys! We can't wait!!!

We had so much fun playing the hilarious game of Apples to Apples! The best part was watching the little girls try to decipher the words!

We are all getting ready for Christmas around here... today was a furry of house cleaning, gift-wrapping, and last minute shopping! Our extended family get-togethers aren't until after Christmas. It is kinda sad, but we are making up for it by inviting friends over who don't have relatives around here.
Our dear friend and adopted brother, Don, will be here. It will be just like old times... it was only two years ago in October that we first met him at a church get-together. He and his brother, Peter, came to our house on Christmas day that year. Since then, we have had many great times together. Much to our dismay, Don has accepted a new pastorial position in Oklahoma and will be moving shortly after the new year. We are glad he will be spending the holiday with us.
The Blairs, a family we just met this month, are also coming from Newton. Tiffany and I were at an 1850's Christmas Ball with our homeschool group and met their beautiful red-head daughters! Since their families are out of state, they are joining us for Christmas dinner. We are so excited to get the know them better!
Hopefully I can soon have pictures to share with you of our holiday festivies! It's such an exciting time of year. A wonderful time to relive memories of the past and making new ones... like our 'Charlie-Brown-christmas-tree'. It rains down pine needles everytime you lay a finger on it. So all the gifts are covered with a seasonal layer of green... to bad they hurt so bad when stepped on! *smile*
