"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

I am so proud of my rockin'-amazing-photograher-sister, Grace.  She has a great eye for photography... and it's fun to watch her get better and better!  Here's some of what she did today with our friend Mikaela.

Which one is your favorite??

A Party

Last week we had some friends over for supper, games, and a bonfire.  We played the Chmelar-family-initiation game, Guesstures, and laughed and laughed and laughed.  Thanks guys for such good times!

When Chmelar's Get Stranded.

It can be a dangerous thing when we are sitting at a deserted gas station at ten o'clock at night... - Here's what happens - 

- Dancing - 

- Impersonations - 

(how do you like my impersonation of a brick wall?!) 

-The Discovery of The Fire Extinguisher - 

Ok, ok... I know - we're killin you.  So we'll stop.

The Home Stretch

We are right in the heated center of an intense mailer for the local campaign we are helping with.  We are learning so much of the inner workings of a campaign, we are learning to how address envelopes quickly (you have to when there's 5000!),  we are learning about keeping those 5000 envelopes in alphabetical order, we are learning that you don't get things in life without a little (and sometimes a lot of) hard work!  It's been an honor helping on Jarad's campaign and it's been blast.  Here's a look at what our mornings have been looking like!  

Gotta keep hard after operation 'Address Envelopes'!

Here's our awesome mom carving time out of her busy days to address some envelopes!
