This is our Christmas photo for 2007. Notice how all the kids are looking in a different direction? That's OK. We have other years to get the "perfect" Christmas card photo. Instead of sending a bunch of late Christmas Cards, this is my tacky attempt to say Merry Christmas to all the many people I love and adore.

We got a lovely little Christmas card from Gramma Carol. She is a real stinker and likes to spoil us all. She is such a fun and spunky lady, I just really adore her. We were able to talk for a few minutes tonight. However our conversation was cut short because Dean called and then Kirstin, Abbys' Mom, called. I normally don't pick up other calls when I am on the line with someone else but Abbys' Mom and Dean don't call usually at this time of day. I plan on calling her this weekend.
It has been a good day Dean just got home and I think I will sign off so that we can talk about the day and stuff. No snow today, well tiny little flurries, but nothing to take pictures of. Tomorrow I will take some pictures of our festive holiday decorations and the kids. Goodnight all!
Today is an overcast kind of day. The forecast says it is supposed to snow. I love the snow. If it starts to snow, I will take some pictures of it and post them a little later on. Well I am going to go be lazy and take a much needed nap with the girls. Aris is in so much pain now that she's cutting teeth. For the past two nights she has gotten up for 30-45 min. in the 3 am -4 am range. So I will be honest I am a wee bit tired. Well I hope everyone has a wonderful day. I will write more later.

Katrina and Sloan
Hey, it's the famous "Hi mom!", moment.
The girls were in an Orient themed dance. They were Oriental candy cane dancers. Sloan is the one one the far right in the picture and the video above. The video is pretty choppy, thats because I filmed it on my digital camera.
The recital was so great, the girls did so well. Mrs. Kathrine is such an awesome teacher. She is very creative and good with the girls. I always look forward to these recitals. She does them twice a year. It's also fun to see all the little one's I used to teach at FBCC. The recitals are always at the Museum of fine art here in Reno. It is a lovely venue and the perfect size for the performance. Every year Sloan gets better at dancing. I look forward to the next few years of dancing with Mrs. Kathrine.

We had lunch at BJ's, it's a brewery and a restaurant all in one. They have the yummiest most awesomist food. It was good to see Brent and Megan and Brian. They are such nice friends.
Well aside from all of the sickness we have been slowly but surely getting ready for the holidays and our trip to San Diego. Dean and I were able to go on a date tonight thanks to a very sweet lady at church. Sister Leech came over and watched the girls for us (yes I warned her that we had the plague) we were able to get almost all of our Christmas shopping done.
I am going to post some pictures from the last little while and hopefully upload a video of Sloan's wonderful little dance recital that she was in today. She practiced so hard and she did such a great job. Hope you guys are all enjoying the holiday season.
P.S. Feel free to leave comments if you want

My silly little monkey!
Before I go take a nap I thought I would post these pictures. Sloan was so sweet, she took Aris into her room and played Barbies with her while I was cleaning the other day. Zoe was in the tub and she was being a total hot sauce, so no pictures of Zoe in this posting.

I am now 5 months old
Today was a lovely day. The girl's and I went to church and didn't get to stay the whole time because Aris was so grumpy. Actually all my girls were less than pleasant to be around today. These are the day's that make you wish the Calgon commercials were real.
What was pleasant however, is that we were able to have Tony and Sara and their adorable little daughter Hailey over for dinner tonight. They were kind enough to watch our pup's while we were in San Diego. It is so nice to know that there are still kind neighbor's. Thanks you guy's.

We came here the very last day of our visit. We left the lovely breezy beach and drove home to our cold and dreary Nevada. It's hard to go from that much green to lots of dead tree's. I love Nevada, don't get me wrong. It's just a different kind of beauty here. I told Dean that when we go back to San Diego in December I want to spend a day at the beach. This whole trip was such a special time for all of us. It reminded me how much fun it was to have family around. I am so very blessed to have Dean and his family in my life. This was truly a most wonderful Thanksgiving.
