Christmas Tree Decorating

I've never put up our Christmas tree this early before. I think I'm just wanting to get the holidays over with. They're no fun during deployments! McKaylie had the holiday spirit, though. And Noah, too. He even put a shirt on for the pictures! Myshel was sort of in the mood. She did decorate . . . what she could reach from her "seat" Vance was very helpful, but his excitement fizzled out early. Image that from a 15 year old boy! My camera wasn't taking great pictures, which was very disappointing. We used our artificial tree this year. I didn't want to have to worry about getting a real tree. ----the tree looks small, though----but then we don't have a whole lot of extra room for it either. Maybe it will help get rid of my "bah-humbugs", anyway! Hope so!

Like Father, Like Son

Vance made some awesome chili the other night! He also made a not so awesome mess! He gets that from his father!

Monday the nurse told Vance that he is 5 ' 10 1/2". That makes him officially half an inch taller than his dad.

When Vance is in the another room and he's talking to someone, I sometimes do a double take. He sounds so much like Chad now.

Myshel's 18th Birthday

It's hard to believe she's 18 now. Time has gone by so fast! I had to make her one more little girl cake. hee hee Myshel and I went to see the new Harry Potter movie, too.

Turkey Bread

Last year for Christmas we made Santa Bread. Noah had the idea to make Turkey Bread for Thanksgiving. So, Myshel took on the task and I think she did a great job!
