Merry Christmas and The End (maybe)

Zach is home and we had a great Christmas!

Although this wasn't technically for Christmas, Greg and the boys finished building a play/swing set in the backyard Saturday before Christmas.
Emily loves it!  But now it's snowing and too cold to use it!

Zach arrived home Sunday afternoon.  We are all so glad he's here, especially Emily and Kona!












Emily got her big Christmas gift a day early.

Then we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Christmas.  We went to the Christmas Eve service at Daniel and Tammy's church then to a Chinese restaurant for Grandma's birthday dinner.
   
And yes, there are now 2 boys taller than Greg!

We opened gifts Christmas morning.  Jon and Ben got a remote control car and helicopter.  It was pretty funny later when Jon got that helicopter stuck very high in a tree and Greg had to rescue it with very tall ladder and pole.  But everyone including the helicopter survived!
 Zach got a very practical Garmin GPS so he'll be able to find his way around his new home.
Later there was way too much food, a fun white elephant gift game and lots of laughter.  It was a great Christmas in Virginia!

As for the end....I think I'm done with this blog.  It's been a great memory keeping tool for me, but I just can't see to keep up with it lately and I think I'd rather spend my computer time on my digital scrapbooking.  I'm not deleting the blog and I may change my mind, but I probably won't be posting here anymore.

Have a great 2013!

Stuff


 We had a great Thanksgiving with Greg's parents and brother and sister-in-law.  We ate way too much food, watched football,  loved on Grandparents, played with Chewie (dog), and were so very thankful to be in Virginia!  We really missed having Zachary here, but he'll be here in 3 weeks!
 
Then Doelyn had a chore for the boys.  They got down who knows how many boxed of Christmas decorations and 2 trees from the attic and then set up Doelyn's 12 ft Christmas tree.

We started our own Christmas decorating with this felt tree for Emily,  though she won't keep it decorated.  I guess she thinks the decorations look better all over the floor!
This weekend Greg was raking and burning leaves.  Ben and Emily decided to have some fun!
 
  

And last but not least....This little girl is potty trained!!!
It took about a week, but she is doing great!  We were out shopping for a couple hours this morning wearing big girl princess panties.  No problem!

I'm a big girl now!

Thankful

I've been posting on Facebook things I'm thankful for.  I wanted to record the things I wrote about my family here.

I'm so thankful that God gave me an amazing husband who loves me selflessly, is a great dad to his boys and girl, is a man of integrity, is an awesome provider, and is an all around good guy.

Thankful for my son Benjamin. He's always made us happy we had a 3rd child. He's funny, smart, loyal, a talented pianist, and a great big brother to his baby sister. He makes me smile.

Thankful for my second son Jonathan. He is my smart, brave, dedicated, loving, talented drummer boy. Can't wait to see what the future holds for him!

I'm thankful for my first son Zachary, the one who made me a mom. He's loyal, dedicated, determined, independent, and a hard worker. I'm so proud of him.

So very thankful for our beautiful, sweet, spunky Emily. Our family was not quite complete before she arrived and now we'll never be the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!
