Christmas 2011

What a wonderful Christmas we had. Here are just some of the highlights from our busy December month. We went to Houston for Christmas and had such a lovely time. We ate and drank and laughed and just plain enjoyed being around each other. Josh's parents went out of their way to make our time together so special and we truly appreicate all that they did. Here are Josh and the boys Christmas night.

Brody waited paitiently to sit on Santa's lap and when it was his turn he climbed right up and told him he wanted a truck and for Papa to come to his birthday party. Jaden stills wants nothing or "nupthing" as he says, to do with sitting on Santa's lap. He is convinced he only needs to tell our elf Markle what he wants and the message gets back to Santa. I guess he is right.

We made a ginerbread village this year, instead of a house so everyone could make their own little house just the way they wanted

Merry Christmas!
