Life in pictures

On Peter's 6th birthday, December 7th, we did the usual-
out for pizza with Grandpa and Grandma

The new headlamp rarely comes off!

Saturday, December 8th was the Vander Wall December birthdays celebration (there are five of them!) Happy Birthday to Pete, Darlene (Pete's sister), Peter, Clayton, and Curtis!

Pete's 29th birthday was the 15th

Peter and Kate enjoyed the big snow last
Saturday! We got so much that church was
actually cancelled!

Celebrating Christmas with my family

Peter opening "just what I was hoping for!"

And here he is a few minutes later.
(okay, he's not quite THAT quick)

Here's Ella eating- I mean opening- her first Christmas present.

Dan and Racine (my sister) modeling the blanket I made for them for a wedding/ Christmas gift.
All the adults gave homemade gifts this year.
One of the gifts Racine presented to mom was a beautiful card and inside was a picture of her positive pregnancy test!!! Yay- my sister is expecting a baby in August!

Kate and Maddie got slings just like mommy's from Grandma and Grandpa. Here we are with our babies :)

This was one messy project!

G is for goggles
And Kate read her first 3 words today (pat, mat, bat)
I am so excited that she will be reading soon too!

Cute pictures! I love the one of Ella and her present :-) Maybe next year she'll understand the whole crazy process a little bit better!
