Charlie Brown Christmas





Getting in the Christmas mood!

And, as Matt lovingly points out, Bethany has my sense of rhythm...

While Abby stayed warm inside, the kids enjoyed our snowfall. The snowman died in just a couple hours, so Uncle Larry will never see it now! (That was what Bethany exclaimed when she noticed.)

Movie Night

Grandma Jane went and got Toy Store 3 on Black Friday, so we had a movie night!

Snowfall!

When it snows, it snows. The kids love it!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We are so thankful this year for our family, our new awesome church, and God's amazing provision. Hope your holiday was as enjoyable as ours!

Pre-Thanksgiving

We went down to Grandma and Papa's the weekend before Thanksgiving. We sure packed in the fun!

Abby helped Papa grade his papers. She makes it look like so much fun, doesn't she?

Bethany and Rebekah love getting spoiled with their play-doh time. Grandma gets out all the tools!

Not bad for a weekend of fun, huh?

Last Nice Day

God blessed us with a couple very nice days before He brought on the snow. We took advantage of it by getting out the bikes and scooters one last time!

Sleeping Bekah

Here's how we found Rebekah sleeping when we went upstairs last night:

"Aunt" Laura's Wedding

A good friend of our family got married last weekend (Congrats, Laura & Carlos!). We took Bethany with us (it was her first wedding!), so here are some pictures from the day.

Halloween

Here are some shots of what our Halloween was like this year.

For those of you keeping score at home, the costumes this year were all from Toy Story:

Bethany: Little Bo Peep
Rebekah: Jessie
Abigail: Ham
Jonas: Buzz Lightyear

Carving Pumpkins

Like I said, I'm a bit late with these.

Sleeping Sisters

This is why we're going to move the older two girls into the same room. I suspect this will not be the last time I post pictures like these.

Good Morning, Abby!

It's not unusual to find Abby wearing more than she was when we put her to bed, thanks to her sisters!

Bowling!

We went bowling a few weeks ago. The kids loved it, and they actually did a pretty decent job of bowling on their own!

Enough said.

Jonas is 4! (and has been for quite some time, now...)

Finally trying to catch up on the blogging again. This is a month or so late, but we celebrated Jonas's 4th birthday in October.

Everybody had a great time, but I doubt anyone was more pleased than the birthday boy! Happy (belated) birthday, buddy!
