Our Christmas Doings

We have really been having sugar overload around here and more cookie baking to be done today! I just love sweets and so that is being passed on to my girls! We made and decorated some sugar cookies and then undertook the arduous task of making a gingerbread house. Our house has roof problems and we had to do some structural engineering to keep it from collapsing. But amazingly enough it is still standing! But I wouldn't advise every eating one of these- the frosting is gross and the gingerbread is even worse! Maybe next year I will think about baking one (probably just think about it and then buy another kit :)

Our sweet little Klaire helping celebrate Karoline's bday!

The Secret Life of Wise Men

Did you know that the wise men live under Klaire's exersaucer and when they aren't bringing gifts to the Baby Jesus they are having tea and crumpets with the barbies.

Merry Christmas to all!

Wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas. How blessed we are to be able to celebrate the birth of our Savior. As I sat in Sunday school yesterday and listened to all the prayer requests for people groups around the world who are enduring tortured and death for their belief in Christ, I realize how important it is for us to thank God for our freedom and pray earnestly for their protection and the continued growth of the Gospel in those places. How fortunate we are, and I pray that we all realize the blessings we have here in during hard times.

Our family wishes you a very Merry Christmas (or mari critmas as Katie would spell it) and a New Year full of joy!

Karoline is Two!! Woo-hoo

Our little Karoline is two! She had a wild birthday week- yes week. In our house birthday's last all week long- lots of cake and lots of celebrating. So we started her birthday week in FL at my dad's house (papa)- her bday was on SUnday the 14th and Kris was preaching at my dad's church- The Vineyard. Now I know most would disapprove of this- but instead of breakfast we had birthday cake and ice cream! Now the reason why is becuase there was going to be no time for a party that day seeing that we had to be back home in time for Katie's Christmas Musical at church! Crazy day- I don't like crazy days.

Well party two came on Thursday with Grammy and Big Jim (Kris' parents). Grammy helped me make my first attempt at making a decorated cake. I would say it turned out really well! But my hands were died red for a few days. So we had here Elmo party and present unwrapping and lots of tears because the five year old wanted to play with everything the two year just got. Any advice on that- I am open to suggestions on dealing with gift sharing??? But all in all the party week was great. Lots of sugar and lots of baby dolls!
