Ears Pierced

One of our Christmas presents to the girls was to let them get their ears pierced.  All 3 reacted very differently, I wish I had video. Davey was stone cold tough, Naomi was loud and teary, and Malia was queasy. But they all did it and are excited to be able to change their earrings in another month or so.

Christmas Morning

We stayed at home for Christmas morning this year for the first time since right after Malia was born. Andrew's parents and Grandma joined us and we had a great day opening gifts, playing and crafting.

Christmas Tree Cutting

This year we ventured back up to the mountains to cut down our Christmas tree. It is a fun way to get a very inexpensive tree ($10).

Christmas at Thanksgiving plus more St. Louis

We are in the habit of celebrating Christmas with my family while together for Thanksgiving.


Cousins before they opened their presents.

We had beautiful weather while in St. Louis. 
Here the kids are testing out Drew's new stomp rocket.

Of course we had to go to Ted Drewes.

Thanksgiving in St. Louis

This year we road tripped to St. Louis for Thanksgiving. In the 12 hours it took to get from our house to my sister's, we only stopped twice! We were so impressed with our kids.

Nap time somewhere in Kansas.

Making turkey decorations/place cards.

Horse Puzzle

Davey got this horse puzzle for her birthday. She worked diligently on it and only got help with a few pieces from the rest of the family along the way.
