Christmas Time is Here

Steven and I hope you've had a very Merry Christmas. We enjoyed watching Mason play with his new toys this year. Below is the one he really LOVES...the Leapfrog Baby he received from Rene and Lindsay.

Mason seems to think that since he already received his gifts from Santa that he no longer has to remain on the 'nice list'. I guess that's why he decided playing with the lighter was okay. And, of course I had to get a picture before I took it away from him :)

Ice Storm

Our neighbors tree in our backyard.

Our tree. The branches landed inches away from the house and fence.

Steven hard at work.

WE ARE ALIVE! This ice storm was the worst I have ever seen. We lost power early Monday morning and it didn't get restored until Friday afternoon. Thank goodness for Rene and Lindsay. We have been staying with them, and only had to sleep by the fireplace one night. Even though we desperately missed the comfort of our own home, it's always nice to spend time with them. In fact, we miss them already. HMMM...I'm thinking SLUMBER PARTY at our pad.

Our trees in our backyard are treacherous, but nothing hit the house or fence. God is good!
Hope all is well with you and yours!

Birthday Reaction

This would be Steven and Rene when they realized they have tickets to a Bears game; sitting at the 35 yard line eight rows behind their team. Can we say excited?
We love you!

Mommy: "Mason, do you want down?"
Mason: (shakes his head no)

Man, does this kid learn fast!
