Help me choose

I did a photo shoot with two of the girls. I need a good photo of both. I'll be taking more later, because I actually need to make a composite, but I need help deciding what should be included.

I'll do Kayla this post, and Jasmine next post.





Just for fun

Another one just for fun

Love these, but no one else can be in the picture. One of these three might go on my wall though.

Christmas and Beyond

Christmas was very low key this year. We did more celebrating on Christmas Eve when the adult kids were here than we did on Christmas Day. We really spent more time playing games together than anything. Here are a few pictures of our time.

Tyler got some sort of game where you get arms and legs bitten off by a shark. It's simple and it goes fast.

I think Rummikub is our official family game. I got several used copies, but they are missing a few pieces, so when I shop for used games for my flea market shop, I keep my eye open for them. We have a complete set, and now Jessica has a complete set for her family. We also played Apples to Apples freestyle a lot. Now that they've played freestyle, they don't want to play the traditional game anymore.

River helped make the birthday cake for Jesus.

Then River had her second birthday December 30th.

 I got her a sleeping bag because they like to go camping.

 Also got her crayons, markers and a coloring book because she's starting "writing" on my papers.

It was a pretty good holiday season, but we are dealing with some issues that I'll share more about once we know what is going to happen.

One of the best things we did was a photo shoot with the girls. I'll share those photos next time. 

In the meantime, please share your family's favorite board game.

Christmas Eve

Traditionally everyone comes over on Christmas Ever to celebrate. That way they can have Christmas mornings with their own families. Only Jeff and Ashley were missing. This was River's second Christmas and Winter's first Christmas. I put pulled pork in the crock pot, and everyone comes over after the Christmas Eve service. Tyler missed service this year because he worked, and the rest of us missed it because the dogs snuck out of the gate, and Travis returned bloody and injured right before we were going to leave.
