Tis the Season!

Ok, here we are, what 17 days from Christmas now? CRAP! Time is still flying by and with all of our Christmas activities in full swing it seems to be going by even faster!

You'll have to check out the posts to see what we've been up to!

We're off to Pittsburgh for Christmas soon and we can't wait to get out of town and see everyone. It should be a fun trip and we are totally looking forward to it. We'll be hitting all the sporting events while we are there too (so lucky to know people that have tickets to such things!).

Pretty much done Christmas shopping. Just a FEW more things to grab and it's a wrap- haha, get it?!

Oh, and the girls are staying up with Grandma and Pap for the last week of vacation so Mom and Dad are going to attempt a New Year's Eve party. Well, we aren't attempting it, we're doing it and are so glad we get to hang out inside where it will be warm!

Anyway, so ya, that's it. I'll be back to update you in 2009! We miss and love you all and hope you have a great Christmas!!!

Yeah! He did it!

It's official! Mike put on his First Class patch on Friday (a promotion that he's been trying for for the past 2.5 years)!!! I'll keep it short and just say that it is a HUGE deal and we are very thrilled about it!

Aubrey's Preschool Christmas Program

What a big night! Aubrey did great....she actually sang :) And she's totally wearing the dress Nicole wore last year (when she was 4, not 3 like Aub). Madeline was in the program as well and we got to hang out with them for a little bit after the show.

Beach time!

Aubrey's Thanksgiving Feast

Nicole and I helped Aubrey's class at their Thanksgiving Feast this year. They dressed as indians while the other class was the pilgrims.

Check her out rocking the peace sign in the last picture- funny!

End of the Soccer Season

The Knights ended their run with a record of 2-2-1. Nicole definitely improved as the season progressed. We're taking a break from sports for the winter and will return to soccer again in the spring.

Check out Nicole playing in her hat and gloves. That was her last game and it was freezing out! Low 20s that morning- brrrrrrr!!!

Little Dancers

Family night at dance class. We got to sit in and watch them dance around. Very entertaining. The girls absolutely love it! They'll have class once a week until their recital in June.
