Check out the side bar & you'll see something a little new. Not only are there fun new pictures of my sweet family, but something else :). Do you see what it is??????

Tree Decorating...

I know, it's the 20th of January. I still don't have my camera back, but I found these pictures when I downloaded our family pictures. I forgot to post the decorating the tree!!!

This year, by far, was the most fun decorating we've ever had! Morgan & Noah had so much fun! They were great little helpers this year & couldn't wait to put on the next decoration:).

The finished product.

Papa putting the star on top.

Morgan & Noah getting hugs in between the hanging
of the ornaments.

Momma & Morgan.

The garland was by far Noah's favorite part:).
He was such a great helper:).

So by the time Christmas was over, only about 7 Christmas decorations got broken. Along with Momma's Precious Moments Nativity that was pulled down from the top of the piano. Seriously though, at least no one got hurt from falling or broken pieces, right?:).

Just so you know...the camera has been found! Yey!!! It still has all 600 and something pictures on it. The only downside is it's still in MARYLAND! So however long it takes my mom to send it, is when the updates begin! I'm so glad she found it hiding behind the huge alarm clock...I'm's the biggest alarm clock I've ever seen... in our room at Grammy & Grandad's or Mimi & Popee's(for those whose vocab is a bit smaller)! So either I hid it from Noah or he hid it from me because he didn't want me to know he had it! Thanks for finding it Mom!!!

I WILL Update Soon...

We are back from our Maryland Christmas trip. Isaac & Noah came back on Sunday...Isaac had to change his flight because he started student teaching on Monday!!! Yey! A degree is in our near future! Like April!!! *And I forgot to add earlier that Noah had a blast traveling with Papa. Looking at all the planes, cars, & trucks or as Noah says "paaane, car, & frucks"(i know, the last word is close..we're working on it:)). Noah also backed up to a lady, who was sitting on the floor at the airport playing with her phone, & sat down in her lap. He loved watching The Backyardigans on a young man's laptop until his battery ran out & Noah shared his cars with him. And loved running up & down the aisle on the plane & playing with empty water bottles that the stewardesses(sp?) gave him. He's so funny & cute of course:)!*

And Morgan & I came back on Monday. It was delayed from it's starting point while they tried to fix the main water line, but couldn't do it in 10 degree weather. That's weird. So our flight was an hour & a half leaving from BWI and we had no running water for anything on the plane. I mean sinks, bottles, coffee & tea for those who care or hot cocoa! And no peanuts in the MAIN cabin(you cheap people) because of a severe peanut allergy of one of the passengers. Aren't airports wonderful?

And I want to update you all on our fun, but I cannot find our camera anywhere from the trip! So once I do, I have some new posts & pics for you all!!! Hope your holidays were wonderful! Love to all! Happy New Year!
