High School Reunion

My good friends from high school – Johnna, Jenny, and Amy came over today to visit and to let the kids play. (You might ask why in this picture all of the kids are smiling – which never happens? Wade was standing behind the camera making the best faces!)

Christmas Is Here

The kids were awake and ready for Santa at 7 am. Judy and Jerry arrived minutes after the kids made it down the stairs. We opened packaging, played with toys, and read books until it was time to get ready for church. We all took nice long naps and then played some more before opening…
