A Very Jolly Christmas

We had a great Christmas this year and enjoyed sharing the holidays with my Dad. We are pictured here on our way to church for Christmas Eve service which is why Paul and I are wearing name tags (we don't normally need those at home).

Santa was very good to the kids this year and they were so excited! Katharine got a ginormous (54") teddy bear - which was exactly what she asked for. Matthew got a big boy bike. And, of course, there were the many other exciting toys from grandparents, etc. They enjoyed an adrenaline filled couple of hours tearing off paper and shrieking over each new thing. And, then they noticed that Santa had turned our never used dining room into a play room and that was the cherry on top - Best Christmas of Katharine's life!

Kicking off the Christmas season

We are officially in full holiday hype in our household!  This week we got our decorations up and Friday night we went to see the lights at the county park. Nanna was here and loves taking part in our family traditions. Katharine thought the lights were about the best thing going and shouted over and over how much she loved it all.

Criddle is back

Our elf on the shelf is back to keep tabs on the kids for Santa. So far he has been getting into mischief with all his sneaky hiding and, this morning we found him making snow angels in the flour!

Sitting with Santa

Santa came to visit campus yesterday and the kids got to tell him what they wanted. Katharine asked for a ginormous Teddy bear and Matt wants a big boy bike!
