Christmas Eve

This year we had a low key Christmas evening with just our little family. We ate some yummy soup for a early dinner and made some fresh home made cookies for Santa. His favorite from our home are chocolate chip with oatmeal. We then played games. My favorite game to play with the boys is Uno. After a rousing game that Andrew won, we read the Christmas story in the Bible, put out cookies for Santa, and tucked the boys in for a good night sleep--in new Christmas jammies of course! Their jammies have Lego Star Wars guys on them. They were a hit! --emily

Christmas Card 2010

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family! We hope you had a fantastic year as we did.

Andrew transitioned to a big-boy bed this year. He has enjoyed waking up early and keeping his dad company while he gets ready for work. He’ll usually wake Kelly up and say, “I want to watch something on your ‘puter.” He’ll watch old Transformers or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons on Kelly’s computer while Kelly makes him breakfast.

Jacob has enjoyed going to pre-school. He has gotten very good at learning the alphabet and he can count pretty close to infinity. Jacob can spell his name as well as several other words. We're proud of him for being such a quick learner.

Last year Emily crafted at a show to earn some extra cash for a new high tech camera. This year she has enjoyed learning to use it and is currently taking a local class. She really is enjoying photography.

Kelly had his 6th anniversary at Applied Discovery, where he is the Director of Production Operations. He also passed the 1 year mark in his MBA program with Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. Kelly has also experienced a resurgence in his guitar-playing career and enjoys jamming with his friend Larry as often as they can get together. --Kelly

The Falls

On Monday we went to visit the falls. We have had lots of rain so our rivers are quite swollen. It was the perfect time to go to the falls. The boys got soaked from the spray but they had a great time anyway.
I was having a hard time keeping my lens dry. The spray from the falls was so powerful. --emily
