December 2012 Happenings

We had such a great December - the whole month was full of activities and we loved every minute of it!
The colored tree (Clayton's choice of lights).

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care (photo by Clayton).

We attended the Lebanon Christmas parade - very cool to see a night parade - and ever cooler with awesome friends like Mark and Kristin.

The kids got quite the view of the parade from up here. :-)

Addy was thrilled to be an angel in the church Christmas program.

Clayton was in the kids choir (front row, on the floor, next to the angel).

Matching PJ's from Papaw and Grandma Herring.

So much fun at Festival of Lights - Ethan & Addy...

...and Emily & Clayton.

"Sam" the Elf arrived in December and was a huge hit!

Two VERY thrilled kids to have won a gift card to Toys R Us from our pediatrician's office.  They love their new umbrellas!

Celebrated my brother, Jeff's, graduation from UC as a CRNA.

Enjoyed caroling at the nursing home with our church.

Celebrated Addy's 3rd birthday! Her cake choice - a pink hippo.  :-)

Opening Christmas presents at home - love to see the excitement on their faces!

So thrilled!

Christmas in Missouri this year included the kids program at church. The original Mary was sick, so Addy got to fill in - she was thrilled beyond measure and acted like baby Jesus was her very own! 

Clayton loved being a shepherd!

A "must-see" video from the program...

A beautiful manger scene - my kids will not forget this!

Clayton, Addy, and Baby Jesus (she still plays with this doll, but now she calls him Moses). :-)

MO Christmas - some of the many cousins - "patiently" waiting for presents. 

IN Christmas - more presents!

There was lots of snow in Indiana - they were so happy to be able to build a snowman!

Whew - The End of December!

Annual Family Picture

My blog has been MIA, because I am out of space with blogger. :-(  I thought about stopping my blog, but I kinda miss it.  Plus, some a couple of my blog readers don't use FB.

I'm trying photobucket for storage and then linking here.  We'll see how it works!

Below is our annual family photo by Larry Seidman - Indianapolis photographer that I use to work for.
