Christmas 2010

This year we had a great Christmas! We had a very relaxing day. We enjoyed spending time as a family just hanging out and playing with new toys. For Christmas dinner we headed over to the church to enjoy dinner and games with our wonderful friends (our Indiana family).
It is so hard to be far away from family, especially during Christmas time. However, having great friends makes it a lot easier.
We ended the day by cuddling on the couch and watching a movie. It was a great day!

Gingerbread house explodes

We had a lot of fun decorating a gingerbread house for Christmas this year, but then what?? What else but blow it up, of course!

Sitting courtside... a Pacers game.

Friday night we were able to take the kids to the Pacers game. Well, not Kate and Elle. And as much as we love Kate and Elle, it was great to take just the older kids to a game.

Parker, Lauren, and Ella on the floor. (Ella is a part of our family now, she has to be, she and Lauren are always connected at the hip)

This pictures for you Beth.
Why is he looking at me like he doesn't even know me? He totally had to practically beg for five from me not to long ago!

After the game they let kids shoot free throws.

Parker and Lauren had a blast at the Pacers game!

Last Thursday we took the kids to the Circus. They had never been before this. They LOVED it! It was a fun night out with the kids.

This is just wrong. Your body shouldn't do this!!!

Lauren and Elle with clown noses on.

Kate was mesmerized by the Circus.

Actually, all of the kids were mesmerized by the Circus. ( and sometimes Mom and Dad too)

I did feel badly for the animals though. The looked a bit sad.
