Happy Birthday Porter!!

Porter's Bday party with friends- This was our first experience with a friend party and I might also add it might be our last- These boys were CRAZY!!! We planned a totally fun party and about 15 minutes in I texted Josh and told him they were all just running and screaming... WHEW glad we made it through. I had them decorate construction hats to wear for the party.. they were really cute.

This is a picture of what they were doing the whole time... the kids had fun.

Porter got a new bike (this is little Aiden Josh's sisters boy)

Porter blowing out the candles on his construction themed cake..

My cute little 7 year old.. this boy is a gem. He is so obedient and tender hearted, he helps a ton and wants to be good. I am so proud of him! He is also super smart..the best reader in his class..gets 100% on all of his spelling tests...does his homework all on his own, I am so thankful for him and the blessing he is in our family.

Christmas Day at my parents house. We had a yummy dinner, then opened presents, the kids favorite part! Sophie and Halle learn how to use Sophies new leapster, and the kids once again doing a Nativity. What a great time of year that we get to spend with so many that we love and care about.

This was most of us on Christmas Eve..What a great family and a great time we had

Kathy and her girls love to cook, and do it so well together. She gave us aprons that matched for us to wear while preparing Christmas eve dinner.

Catching up....

Christmas Eve started with a day of Sledding in Holden. The kids had a ball and Halle and I crashed into the fence once, other than that a great day!!
