Thanks Pops and Deedee!

Will's grandparents recently gave him a couple of gifts...a recorder and a harmonica (or as will says "monica").  Our house is alive with the sound of muuuuuusic! :)

That is supposed to be a smile.  :)  Welcome to the stage of little boy awkward smiles.  Lol.  :)

Merry Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  We hope your day is/was splendid and that you were able to spend it with family and loved ones!  Praise God for sending his precious son, our loving Savior!

Here are a few pictures from our morning:

Will got all the presents out from under the tree for all the children.  Here he's surveying the goods.

Will's gift, a Diego rescue center and accessories.  

Thank you Uncle Brian and Tia Maria for the rescue helicopter!  He loves it!

Thanksgiving Hodge Podge

Over Thanksgiving we visited Carl's parents in Pennsylvania for a Thanksgiving/hunting trip.  It was a great trip during which we were able to just relax and enjoy having fun with each other.  It was also the most prosperous hunting trip Carl has ever had, as he got both a turkey and a deer within a few days of each other!  Here's a few miscellaneous pics from the trip.  :)

Carl, Deedee, and I ran a Turkey Trot race.  Deedee and I did the 5K and Carl ran the 10K, actually running his best time yet!

The turkey!  It was early in the morning, as you  may be able to tell by Will's bed-head.  :)

Funny boy.

Deedee got pirate costumes, so there was some swashbuckling fun going on.
