The shower, sisters & snow

As you can see by Rebecca's expression, she would like to have this whole thing over with! It's been 10 days since the shower and she is getting bigger and more miserable, I think it's time Kingston!!!

Gracie and Jersie playing cell phone games
Most of the snow has melted and I paid each of the kids a dollar to pick up a bucket of walnuts, good deal for all (I think I came out ahead)
Garrett and Avery
Getting ready for the shower to start; this is Grandma Zola with Avery, Jason's mom and daughter

Jennifer and Garrett
Well the kids from Az wanted some snow, well we got it...They didn't have any winter snow clothes so we had to make do with all of their aunts old stuff I saved

I'm not sure how well the scooters were working in the snow
I guess we can say it was Jack's fault that we got this snow storm, all he wanted to see when he came to visit was snow...well he got snow!

We had a great time getting to know Jason's family and seeing friends that we haven't seen in years. It was also fun showing off the house since it's done...well, we can always find more projects!

Christmas with the Randalls

This Christmas we decided to go to Oregon for Christmas rather than just staying home with the two of us. First it was an adventure driving there and back. We had tons of fun with the kids and Jennifer and Aaron. This was our attempt to make a gingerbread house and gingerbread train...
