Christmas in pictures

We hope your Christmas was as blessed.

The girls are having ear tube surgery on Monday morning the 29th. We would love prayers for an easy surgery, quick recovery and repaired hearing for both girls.  Thanks!

Getting ready for Christmas

We are in full speed ahead Christmas mode here.

We have listened to and sung Christmas carols.

We have decorated the house...

my helpers are awesome decorators!

We have decorated the cookies.
The kids all loved painting their sugar cookies.

Alayna won the prize for decorating the longest and getting the messiest!

The girls have truly enjoyed going to see the Christmas lights this year.  The first year Dariya was home she would cry every time we looked at Christmas lights.  Still not sure what the issue with them was but, thankful it is a thing of the past.

Finally, we have rung in the Christmas season with Aidan's 6th grade band concert.  He is excelling at saxophone!

We now have some snow to play in as the kids first day off for break is today!  Do you want to build a snowman? ;)

Anyone there?

I keep pondering shutting down this blog as I can't find time to actually update it.  My sweet uncle used to look at it everyday, but since he passed away I haven't updated regularly.  I know my sister in law Trudy enjoys the pics as she isn't on FB but, it is so much easier to post a pic and a tag on FB these days.

Our newest news...
Alayna lost her 2nd tooth and has an adult tooth popping in through the bottom.  Both girls still have fluid behind their eardrums so are schedule for tubes on December 29th (Dariya adenoids possibly too).

The girls and I enjoy our mornings together.  Here is a game of hide and seek where I was "it".  I'm not sure I will ever find the girls.  ;)
They are both loving school.  Hard to believe next week is the end of the first semester already.

So far I am keeping up with Jason on afternoon deliveries.  He actually hasn't been home too late as UPS hired plenty of new drivers to cover the holiday this year!  YAY!

Dariya had a little stomach bug for a day and decided to sleep the day away in our bed.  Little sister went in for comfort!  Thankfully nobody else in the family caught it and after a day or so she was up and running again!

Hope you have a great week~
