It was a very Merry Christmas!

in case you have been wondering how we celebrated Christmas this year.... here is our Christmas season in review...

fun Christmas train ride out in the desert (6 miles of track and hand made trains) and yes, even though its phoenix it WAS cold

taking ella to the nutcracker. she was so excited, but kept wondering when baby Jesus was going to make an appearance.

decorating (and mostly eating) Christmas cookies

opening Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, after Christmas Eve Service at church

decorating gingerbread houses (and eating frosting)

build your own pizza... our new Christmas dinner tradition which doesn't involve spending all of Christmas in the kitchen! and also, something the kids will actually eat :)

we are so blessed and looking forward to what God has planned for 2008!

getting started

since i so thoroughly enjoy reading the blogs of my family and friends, i thought to myself, who WOULDN'T want to read about our family? :) so here we are...

i'm sure my posts won't be as thoughtful and moving as my sister's, or as witty as sara's, but when i find the time, i'll be sure to add little updates on our lives.
