isnt christmas grand

so i am finally getting christmas done. we always have the boys line up every year before going to the family room. they alternate every year youngest to oldest and reverse. so fun
every year we go caroling as a family. not justins fav but he endures it because he loves me. so this is my whole family. i have 1 sister (next to my mom in the middle) and 4 brothers. as you can see, we have tripled in size. also im a so blessed to have grandparents that my children know and love. they are still spunky as every, even at 81 and 91 years old. arent they sooooo cute

okay okay. so it took me a little longer but here i am. thanks my friend cori. so just a bit of info. we are loving our new place and all are adjusting well. christmas was a success as always. and yes i am a year older and feeling it. justin and i fell asleep at 9:30. poop on us. anyway here are a few fun pics to see our adventures over the last couple of months. let me explain...we decided to go to the park shortly after we moved in and play football. the boys of course had to begin challenging eachother about 30 minutes later with a race. mom and dad got involved and poor christopher got the short end of the stick when dad tripped him and he landed right in...well you can only guess what happened. 2+2=christopher completely grossed out. you can see mom and dad couldnt help but to laugh which of course made the situation even even worse. thats ok.

so these are my nephews and neices. we decided that for my moms birthday we would give her one of those cool digital frames so off we went to the other side of town to take pictures. and vuola. arent they just adorable.

ian had his first school performance and when i looked up from the camera, this is what i saw. isnt he just silly
