Lost her first tooth!! WOW!! She came home from school, with a little wiggly loose tooth and by dinner she was whining, saying she couldn't eat......Seth told her he would pull it out for her and she agreed. WHAT the!??!?! He yanked on it about three times and it finally came out. Katie didn't cry once! Crazy girl! (Dec.17) see how far behind I am!!?!

Christmas Program 2008

The Hamilton Elementary had their Christmas Program on December 8th 2008. Jared and Katie both participated. This is a tradition we all look forward to, and was reminded how fast it goes by (Annie is now TOO old.....stinkin' 5th grader!!) So we loaded up and went as a family to enjoy hearing the kids sing a few Christmas songs to start the Holiday Season!

*thanks alan for the pictures.

The Gingerbread Extravaganza....

and what an extravaganza it was! Cindy (seth's mom) does gingerbread houses every year with all of us for her big Christmas party.....we always have such a blast. Each year the kids get more and more into it......usually we (seth and I) spend a lot of time 'helping' the kids out, and this year they were doing most of it themselves!! Good times, for sure!

What a wonderful time of year!! Again, I am amazed at how quickly time passes. We had a great Thanksgiving. For breakfast we got together with the Galbraith's. Had Yummy waffles, and enjoyed every ones company. The kids played basketball and ran around like crazy.
Then that afternoon we had My Mom and Dad, Alan and Spenser over here for the BIG meal! It was a lovely day. I didn't take any pictures, but i will steal some from Mom....I think she got a few.

We had a big Black Friday sale at the Shop and we were busy.....we had two more quilts come in to be quilted and made quite a few retail sales. Always exciting! Things just get better and better. Dad, Seth, Alan and Spenser worked more on the building and put up our AWESOME signs Natalie painted!! (seriously, awesome job!!) Hillary and Alex came later in the afternoon, and I conned Hill into sewing a quilt I laid out, and Alex put up Christmas lights for us! We didn't finish the quilt, but I am quite sure I can sweet talk Mom into finishing it for me, er the 'shop'. Teheehheeh! Who knew I would love putting quilts together? I just love fabric. I still haven't mastered the whole 'sew a straight line' thing yet, but I am an amazing iron-er! :)

We had Jared's Baptism yesterday, and I will do a complete post on that when I get the pictures from Mom. Let me just say, it was wonderful!

Have a great week....
