We all had a wonderful Christmas this year! Tristan got new LED halo headlights and sequential taillights for his car, among other things. Jasen was stoked to get a new laptop for school! Hunter got a pack for all the hiking and camping he'll be doing now as a big Boy Scout. Brinley got an American Girl doll that looks "just like me!" that she named Lily. Cahl and I also got several wonderful gifts, but the best one was the new closet system that Cahl built for us! It is so awesome, and we're both so excited to have so much more storage!

Snow Man

Hunter and Brinley were so excited that we got some snow, and to make a snow man! Sadly we didn't get very much snow, so this was the biggest their man got :)

Skid Plate

Cahl has had this skid plate to put on our little Toyota truck for a while now, so Tristan decided to take it to his shop class and straighten and paint it. It turned out great, even if he did choose Seahawk colors!

2nd Grade Program

Today the 2nd Grade put on their musical program. Brinley even had a speaking part, introducing a song. They all did wonderful, and I love coming to these programs!

Piano Recital

This evening Brinley and Hunter had their winter piano recital. Brinley played "We Three Kings," and Hunter played "Jingle Bells." They both did awesome, and I'm so proud of how much they've learned this year!

I took Hunter and a bunch of his friends down for his birthday party this evening. He chose to go to Nerf Ed, which is a warehouse set up for Nerf wars. After that, we headed to Dairy Queen for dinner and dessert. They all had a great time!

Happy Birthday

Our Hunter Delbert turned 11 today! It was a bit of a crazy day for us, since Cahl went in for surgery to fix his nose first thing this morning. I stayed with him most of the day, then came for to meet Hunter after school. He insisted on making his own cake this year, and it turned out great! He also loved all the gifts he got!
