Dancing Divas

Christmas came a little early when we got a package in the mail from Uncle Richard and Aunt Teri. Inside were the CUTEST tutu's I have ever seen. Of course the girls loved them the second they saw them. They wore them to the grocery store and tried to wear them to bed. At the store everyone kept talking to them and telling them how cute they were--yeah that helped:) Riley also got a reversable superman/batman cape, which he loves. THANK-YOU AUNTIE AND UNCLE!!

OUR Christmas!!

We had a great Christmas. Russ got to be here with us. Our December was full of seeing Santa, parties, yummy food, family, and friends. The kids got very spoiled with gifts and candy. We love this time of year and the spirit of Christmas. Here are just a few pictures. Riley at his school Christmas program. He got a speaking part this year and did a great job.

10 years HOLY COW--really?!?!

Today Russ and I have been married for 10 YEARS!! It really is crazy. We have been through so much in the last 10 years. New homes, new cars, new jobs, new callings, new babies. It seems like time goes so fast. One day you wake up and realize you have been married to your best friend for 10 years and you have 3 wonderful kids, and a beautiful home. I think "how did I get so lucky?" Russ is everything I could ever wish for. He is such a great husband--so supportive and caring. He is a wonderful father. We are very blessed to have him in our lives. I know I take him for grantied most of the time--BUT I want him to know that my life is complete with him. I would be nothing or anywhere if he wasn't by my side the whole way. Russ, I love you more and more everyday. Thank-you for the most wonderful 10 years!!

This year was a little weird having to get Christmas up and going without Russ here. We still have not gotten our outside lights up--and that will not happen this year. We did get to our Christmas tree. It was fun to see the kids get so excited. They always want to decorate with the Christmas stuff. Of course the ornaments and decorations have been re-arranged several times already. The best is to watch Reese chase the train that is under the tree. She runs and screams "choo-choo". I love it. Merry Christmas everyone.
