Gingerbread House

For the last several years we have gone to our friend's bakery to decorate a gingerbread house. It is a fun tradition, and the bakery houses are much nicer than anything that I could make at home.

Growing Up

Oldest daughter lost her first tooth on November 2! We were traveling home and she was hungry, so I gave her the only food that I had with me, an apple, of course. A few minutes later I had to pull over because she was a bit scared by the bloody tooth that popped out of her mouth. I was not prepared for this. None of her friends have lost teeth yet, and she is the youngest among them. Can't she just stay little a while longer?!!! Since I am so late in posting this, she has already lost tooth number two. It was so loose that it actually fell out without her knowing it, and we have not been able to find the tooth.

Happy New Year!

We had a very busy holiday season this year. Drew's brother got married in Chicago, and then we spent Christmas with the family in southern Illinois. We were so glad to welcome Meg into our family. Here are a few photos from the wedding. The girls were so excited to get dressed up for Jonathan and Meg's wedding, and my hubby looked very handsome in his tux! I'll post more photos from Christmas when I get a chance.

We hope that you all had a blessed holiday with friends and family, and we wish you His blessings in the New Year.
