Fourth Christmas

What happened to Third Christmas? With about 35 people in the house and so much activity going on, people were spread all over, and sadly, the camera did not get used much. But good times were still had by all. Fourth (and final) Christmas was at the Walls house.
Presents were openedand Jaden's favorite part was the wrapping paper! Shocking.
This was the year of matching vestsand hoodies.The girls played Wii and decorated a gingerbread stable for the nativity cookies Auntie Kendra made.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Second Christmas

How many Chrismtases are there, you ask? Why, this year there are four! The first was with the Abrahams', the second is with most of the Froeses, the third is with the Stobbes and the fourth is with all the (local) Froeses. Busy, busy!The girls were very excited Christmas morning. Jaden - not so much.But after watching Rachaeland Kaitlyn open a few presentshe got the hang of it. His favorite toy was his new truck.After breakfast the Froese family came over for the not-so-traditional Christmas meal of veraniki, and to spend time together.Merry Second Christmas!

Calvin and Hobbes

Uncle Jeff was looking for a stuffed tiger that looked liked Calvin's best friend Hobbes.I hope this doesn't mean Jaden's going to grow up to be like Calvin!

He shared it with his new cousin Elizabeth who is only a week old.The Abrahams family came over for Christmas fun, food and fellowship.And of course presents! Lots of those.Jaden doesn't quite have the ripping-open-of-the-paper quite yet, but he does have the eating-of-the-paper down!One down and still three to go!Merry Christmas!

Ice Skating

We kicked off Christmas Holidays with a trip to the skating rink with the Walls (well, most of them, anyway).The girls did really well for only having done it two or three times. Lots of fun!

New Niece

Elizabeth Lynn was born to Brian and Andree on December 13th, weighing 8lbs 13oz. They were home les than 24 hours later so we didn't even get a chance to visit in the hospital! But we saw them at home. I got to hold her and the boys, too.
