All Kinds of News

I have been terrible at keeping up with our family happenings.  This post will be covering a lot of ground! First: Christmas.  We had the best Christmas present days before when Nathan was miraculously given a new job.  We feel so grateful and blessed!  Here are some of our Christmas morning photos.

Nice to have Christmas on a Sunday so we all look nice for photos! :)  But these were taken before we cleaned up:
This is everyone killing time waiting for Jake and Leslie to wake up for the festivities.  You know you are getting old when someone has to wake you up on Christmas morning. :)
Yay! All assembled.
We had a good Christmas.
In January there was a scouting court of honor.  Jacob received his last two merit badges required for his eagle, and Caleb received his first ever merit badge!
Miriam has joined a club where she is learning to cook and sew with friends.  This is her first machine project.  It is a backpack.
Camille turned 14 at the end of January.  She is pretty excited about going to the regional dances now. 

These are photos of a gift Seth made for me.  He calls it my nature bracelet, because he found all the things for it out in nature. :) Thanks, sweet boy.

LOVEY, LOVE, LOVE the nature bracelet! Ha, ha!! :) I also was noticing the time between posts and was thinking of mentioning that we needed an update. Glad you beat me to it! The kids all look bigger than when I saw them last....even that big guy Jake. We miss him! Just sayin'
