Last but not least...

Finally - Christmas #3! Grandma Debi came to visit the week of Christmas. The kids had a great time with some craft projects, a basketball game and just hanging out.

Here's some pictures!

Making ornaments out of rice krispies!

Another trip to Daddy's "Big, Big Building" (as Chase calls it)to see the Cards play.

Christmas Eve we opened our special bags from Grandma Debi after church and then headed up to bed so Santa could come!

This is sad...I know - but my mom always makes coffee ring for breakfast when we're all together on vacations, holidays, etc. So since we weren't going to be able to be "home" for Christmas again this year - I decided to try to make us one. Let's just say that this is the better of the two we made. It's at least round (obviously the other was not!).

Not my best baking - but it tasted good!

The kids had a great Christmas with all thier grandparents! And now that Christmas is over - Emma has started asking/talking about her birthday everyday. (I'm re-thinking the fact that I told her a few months ago that her b-day was just after Christmas.) It's going to be the topic of discussion for the next few weeks I'm sure!

The week before Christmas...

The week before Christmas, Grandpa Randy and Grandma Donna came to visit! We didn't have too much planned other than hanging out and catching a little basketball - but Chase ended up adding a trip for he and Grandpa to see Dr. Joe for a little case of Strep throat. We had a great time - as always - and really missed them when the headed back home. We can't wait for them to visit again...soon...hear that Grandpa...Soon!

Here's a few photos of thier trip...

Emma cheesin it up at the UofL game...she's good for only about 1/2 a game and then she's over it!

This little man is good for the whole game and then some - he LOVES baseketball!

Emma and her scary monster face - I think she was getting bored!

Me and my babes!

Sassy Little Cheerleader!

While they were here - we of course celebrated Christmas #2 for the year.

Now I can have coffee right away in the morning when we camp - Thank the Lord!!!

Chase in his Tonka box - he fit perfectly!

The kids each got a Dora and Diego backpack as well as a talking Dora and Diego - they run around the house exploring and saving baby animals on the weekends now!

Christmas Play

Emma and Chase had thier Christmas Program at daycare a few weeks ago. It was Hilarious!!! Chase was a Christmas kitty and did a song with bells. Emma was an Angel and she was Wonderful (and LOUD!!). She and her friend Alley (next to her) were quite the show!
(My photos are awful and the video is not much better - but it's still cute!)
