Christmas Day

Santa was so good to Emily this year!! Christmas was so much fun-she totally got it this year!! She loved opening presents!!

It took awhile to get her off of her new motorcycle and back to opening presents!!

Yes, she got juice boxes for Christmas, that's all she asked Santa for!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas begins...

Our Christmas fun started by celebrating the Walter/Clear Christmas in Waterville at Aaron's mom's house. It was fun to see all the cousins' kids (whatever relationship that makes them-second cousins??).

Aunt Kristie had picked up fun gingerbread house kits for the kids to do. Chances are the moms helped quite a bit too :)

Such a cutie!


Emily was refusing to be in the picture. Kevin, Camden, Anna, Alexis and Jack.

Holiday fun

Emily and I went with Crystal and Katlynn to Marmon Valley Farms. They have a hayride that takes you through a live nativity that is really neat! It was freezing outside though! Despite the cold, we had a great time-even took in some cookies and hot chocolate.

Emily enjoying her cookie!

Singing Christmas carols on the horse drawn carriage ride. There were lots of blankets to help keep warm on the carriage!

Always dressing up-my little princess.

Work Christmas Party 12/2/09

Here's just a few of the pictures that I took at our work Christmas party this year. It was so much fun!! I definitely paid for it the next day though! It was such a great time!

Just getting started.

On to the next bar-and more shots!! Yikes!

Cheers to a good night!!!

Emily loves her babies

Emily loves to take care of her babies. She has such a kind heart that really shows when she's being a 'mommy.' It is so sweet to just watch her play!

Resting with her doll baby. She made a bed out of some fabric I bought to make a blanket.

Say Cheese!

She is so stinkin' adorable!!!!

Moore Thanksgiving

The Moore family Thanksgiving was at our house this year! We had it a little early trying to accommodate everyone's schedules and traveling. It was the same day as the OSU vs. UM game, so we were all dressed appropriately! Of course, our Buckeyes won!!! The weather ended up being absolutely beautiful-which you can't usually count on in November here in Ohio. The food was delicious too-only a few snafoos. Somehow I managed to burn the mashed potatoes (they had quite the smoked flavor to them), and also didn't have a propane tank to fry our 2nd turkey. There was still plenty of scrumptious food, so no one went hungry! It was a great time!

Gathering around the kids table.

My uncle's cute little girl Grace!

My stepbrother Michael and my Uncle Matt vs....

Colin and Aaron!! Not sure who won...pretty intense game!

Games inside too!
