Christmas fun

For our friends Christmas party this year we decided that we would do a fun activity instead of exchanging gifts. So we ended up having a paintball fight. It was a ton of fun, but we missed Sarah who was sick at home. After our paintball fight we went out to chad and I's new favorite BBQ place: Allison's Texas Barbecue, and Sarah joined us there. It was a great time and I think the start of a great new tradition.

Belated Christmas

Grandma and grandpa O'Loughlin were our of town on Christmas so we celebrated it with them yesterday. Nathan got a game called "Pop the Pig" and you would have thought he had won the lottery. He has been inseparable from it since.

Garage sale

We had a garage sale and we had a couple of the cutest girls working the bake sale. They got so excited, especially Maya, when someone bought something.

So cute

Here are a couple of our Christmas photos. I like to get a picture of the kids in their Christmas church clothes, but it's always touch and go to get it right before church starts. I count these as successful!

It's actually a blessing

Chad was involved in an accident. It wasn't his fault and he's fine so this is actually great! We get to have the number that already had previous damage fixed. Were going to count it as a blessing.

Growing up

Caitlyn turned 10 last week and today she had her first teenage-style phone conversation. It was spontaneous and has been going on for 45 minutes with a friend from school. It's fun to see these little milestones. I'm sure this is the first of many conversations to happen
