Sunday, December 27th, 2009

We hadn’t been to the zoo in a long time, and it was a beautiful day outside, so the kids really wanted to go. I took way too many pictures. Here are a bunch of them:

Christmas Card Substitute

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

The reality is that there won’t be Christmas cards coming in the mail this year, so this will have to do. I feel pretty bad about this, since I’ve put together a picture to mail out every year since Lauren was born. Anyway, here they are all dressed up fancy for their annual picture.

Day at Opryland

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

We went to the Opryland Hotel to look at all the Christmas decorations and to have a nice dinner. I think everyone had, but the kids got a little tired of posing for pictures.

First Reconciliation

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Beth and Jake had their First Reconciliation sacrament tonight. They were both pretty excited about it, not at all scared like I thought they would be. No pictures during the ceremony of course, but here are a couple from before we went in:
