Christmas Day

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as we celebrated the birth of our Savior!

Jackie looked just like this after she opened each present.

Elijah poses by his 'scared man' he created out of sticky foam.

Two big hits were Transformers and Littlest Pets and the kids loved their new pj's from Grandma Madeline.

My Sweet Nieces

This is my new little niece, Prisca, born on November 14th. Is she tiny or what?! This was a photo shoot for the Pregnancy Resource Center's January fundraiser. The money was thoroughly washed beforehand!
And this is her big sister, on the right (isn't she so cute!), who is 1 year and 5 days older than her. Whoa! Angie and Brady sure have their hands full right now but I'm sure these little girls will be the best of friends and a big help to their mom when they are older.

Elijah's Christmas Program

Elijah had his school Christmas Program last Tuesday. He was a donkey. There is a really cute, short video on Jason's blog = When we got to the car he said "Were you impressed?"

The Persaudmata's

My sister, Melanie, and her new husband, Christian, came for a visit from Hawaii. It was soooo good to see them. They took us on some fun adventures: a trip to the Marine base in Quantico, VA, a visit to the Hershey Chocolate World, and on a beautiful drive through Amish country. We were very sad to see them leave and are hoping they will be back very soon!

The kids had been drawing pictures and making cards weeks before they met their new uncle. They loved him from the very start!

We saw the IMAX movie in Chocolate World. We had 3-D glasses and the chairs shook, it snowed and we were splashed on and it felt like things were hitting our legs. This was our first experience in this kind of theater and Elijah was NOT impressed. The rest of us thought it was great!

We saw a cannery, candle making, hand-made furniture and lots of fun shops in Amish country.

We just happened to come across this covered bridge, one of the things I love about Central PA.

On Thanksgiving morning the kids got up, dressed themselves and made this beautiful Thanksgiving Banner. They both helped me in the kitchen and dad got to relax and watch some football.

Elijah is the ultimate yam-peeler!

Mom came to visit over Jackie's Birthday. We had tons of fun, I had to work but she walked down every day when I got off and we went to lucnh, coffee or shopping! She took us to the Children's Museum in Baltimore on her last day. They had tons of great exhibits, the kids had a great time, we all had a great time! THANKS MOM!!
