Christmas 2014

We had an excellent Christmas! It was so fun. We spent it in Oklahoma with my family. Santa came to Grandma and Papa's. Before we left town, we went to see Santa. 

Seeing Santa
 The Sunday before Christmas, we went to my parents church. It was a good service. They have this beautiful sleigh and Christmas trees set up, so we took advantage and took some pictures.

 On Christmas Day, after opening presents, Wes made breakfast. After breakfast, my sister and her family came over for lunch. We had a fun day celebrating Christ's birth.

Saturday, we were woken to Lizzie saying "there's snow!" Sure enough, there was some snow on the ground. We had to run to get shoes, hats and gloves. We weren't quite prepared for snow.
Later on Saturday, we headed to meet up with my dad's family for Christmas. We had fun visiting with his family. On Sunday, we had to leave to head back home. Wes had work on Monday.
 Before we left town, we stopped by my grandma's place. I snapped a few pictures before we left. The girls love to make great-grandma pictures while they are there and tape them to her door.

All of us!
Love this!
We hope this Christmas and New Year that you find light in the darkness, love for one another and peace.

Christmas Performances

The girls have been singing with the choir in church since they were four. They have loved it each year. Yesterday, they sang in church and then again at the Christmas Pops concert.

They did great and had a blast! Gracie's teacher even came and watched her sing. It meant a lot to Grace. The Christmas Season is in full swing!

Thanksgiving 2014

We had a great Thanksgiving! We went to Oklahoma and spent time with family. The girls spent the whole week there because they were out of school. Wes and I came up on Wednesday. On Thursday, Nana came up to spend the weekend with us.

On Thanksgiving, we saw a ton of family. My cousin's family came over and the kids all had a blast playing. It was a great day!

We had a great time with all our family. I only took pictures on Thanksgiving and then only of the kids.
