Our December (thus far) in Pictures

At least what my camera caught. I have been on a photo vacation due to my camera developing a dislike for the batteries I have been using.

Happy December Day!
December 1st - Celebrating December with the choosing of a tree, decorating the tree with lights, a special dinner and family game night.

The reading of the Jesse Tree


December 5th - St. Nicholas Day - no pictures... :( Jake was thrilled with the "return" of his two small puppies. (Thank you, e-bay)

The object lesson

Gingerbread men


Christmas Sweater Party


December 14th - Lessons and Carols Service. We came out to a beautiful dusting of snow!
The next morning...today...it was a Willamette Vally Winter Wonderland. Not much of a fuss for our Northeastern relations, but pretty cool for us! Josh's new boss even let him come in late!


The babies did NOT appreciate the novelty and so we watched the boys play from indoors.
Just a funny picture of daily life around here.
