Christmas was a lot of fun this year. The kids have been seriously anticipating it for so long now! We all had a great day. Santa was very kind to the kids and brought them a new pet! Curren got an iguana and named him "Bullet" He loves it. We were woken up at 6:00 am by Jessie running in our room and saying "Dad! Santa brought us a TOAD!" And she ran out of the room, came back and said “no, it’s a lizard! Hurry and come see!” It was great. We watched movies, played the Nintendo DS (Jessie got one this year), along with a lot of new DS games. I hope you all had a great Christmas too. Let’s hope this lizard doesn’t escape from his cage anytime soon, he is really fast! :)

Lots of snow!

The kids totally lucked out around here, they got ALL week off from school! So this means a 3 week Christmas holiday for them. How good is life being a kid? I want to be one too!
We got our tree up this week :) It is a shrimpy one compared to what we had last year. But that is okay, it's a beautiful one. We got it all full of shiny decorations and have been enjoying it.
Curren has been sick all week, which is why he's not in many photos... Hopefully he'll be feeling better very soon.

Curren has a request

Curren is officially addicted to eggnog, so he says. Here is a note I found on the counter the other day with the empty eggnog carton on top of it.
I had better get to the store!

Dirt bike riding.

Mark got a new toy, to add to collection. He has been out quite a bit, when he is home anyway!

Curren went with him one time. :D

Nikki was here :)

Nikki came to visit me while Mark was on another business trip. She found out that she is having a baby girl at the end of April :D We had a lot of fun sewing, and hiking and talking. thanks for visiting Nikki, we miss you .
We went on the Silver Falls State Park hike, it was awesome :D
