Merry Christmas Everyone ! ! !

What a wonderful blessing it is to see yet another Christmas Season come. God is truly wonderful and we have been BLESSED beyond our dreams this year. I pray that each of you have had a wonderful Christmas. We had a wonderful day . . . actually we have had a wonderful week starting since last Wednesday when we left and took a few days off and went to Osage Beach before heading up to Livonia for the Allen Family Christmas last Saturday. Believe it or not I forgot my camera so I don't have any pictures, but we all had a wonderful time ! (Thank you Daddy for planning everything).

Today was the first time that Noah was able to join in the reading of the Christmas story - (next year Avery should be able to join us as well) so the three of us took turns reading the Christmas story before opening presents and making cookies and blueberry muffins.

Here are just a few pictures from our Christmas. Enjoy and have a wonderful day.
All our love - Lisa

If you know anything about Avery lately it is that she LOVES (did I say LOVES) Little House on the Prairie. Of course I thought it would be a good idea and bought the complete series this past Spring. (Which I'm not sure was such a good idea). She has just about every episode memorized. Noah refuses to even be in the living room anymore when she watches them. Well here is her own Ms. Beattle "Lemon Verbena". She has already sprayed both Bob and I with it.

Avery a little excited when she opened her doll house.

Here is Daddy and Avery playing house. I must say that I don't think this is Daddy's "thing", but he was a trooper. Although in the next picture you can see what he did with the doll "daddy".

He was suppose to be doing the laundry. Avery got on him for not doing his "chores". Can I just say that I never knew how popular this doll house was when I bought it. I went to 3 Wal-Marts, Toy's R Us, Target, and K-Mart and there was only 2 sets of the furniture left. I even tried online and everything was sold out. Ebay was listing them for $46.00 and up for each set (normally sells at Wal-Mart for $9 - $12) Now isn't that just CRAZY!!!! I think we will just wait until FisherPrice makes more.

Yes he is really kissing a present. This is a mini lego train that he has wanted for months.

We surprised Bob with a new drum seat. It is a roc n' soc with a back rest. He has needed a new seat for a long time, playing drums with an uncomfortable seat is really hard on his back - so hopefully this will help. He uses his talent in God's service and I was thankful that we were able to give him something to help him serve a little more "comfortably".
