A trip to see the Big Man

Time to back track to the month of December

On the way to see Santa, Kesa informed us that she wasn't going to sit on his lap. We then proceeded to inform her that if she didn't sit on his lap and ask him for something, then he wouldn't be getting her anything. As you can see from the picture, both she and Kassie enjoyed their visit with Santa Clause.

The boys were a little more subdued than the girls and very quietly told Santa what they wanted. Kaleb was pretty proud of himself.

Kaden gets brand new glasses

Kaden has squinted and blinked more than his fair share for awhile now so we decided to take the plunge and take him to the eye doctor and sure enough, he needs glasses! 2 days after the order here they are. A boy with his first pair of glasses.

I sense a disturbance in the force!

Kesa decided it would be fun to make Kaleb into a train. As you can see from his face it is a bright blue just like Thomas The Tank Engine. The most disturbing part was the nail polish on his fingers. Yikes!

ETA: Actually the most painful part was attempting to remove the caked on gunk from places on his face that little boys don't like scrubbed with soap and washcloths...yes washclothS. It took 2 of them to get all of it off. I told Kesa to please NEVER do that again.

At least we have memories.

Kaleb doesn't watch t.v. like a normal kid. He has a unique style all his own.

Kaleb displays the chocolate monster in all of us

The girls new hair cuts

Kesa has been wanting to do Locks for Love for quite some time now, so one afternoon I decided to take all four kids to get there hair cut. Here is their experience.

Kesa looked a little apprehensive at the beginning

When the lady started cutting I started to panic

Here is the 10 inches of hair that was cut off

A smiling and very happy Kesa after it was all done. She couldn't stop flipping it around and being amazed that it still looked the same after being messed up a bit.

Kassie didn't want to go as short as Kesa so she didn't do Locks for Love.
Here is the final look after her cut.

Our new furniture

We were very blessed this year so we thought we would treat ourselves to some new furniture. We bought a beautiful brown couch, two oversized lazy boy recliners and some art work for the wall. Oh, and we also bought three bookshelves for the dining room that is no longer a dining room. We'll show those pictures when we actually put the shelves together.

Kesa's Show Choir Performance

It's been awhile since we've updated our blog so bare with us as we backtrack to November.

Kesa made show choir this year and has enjoyed it immensely! Here she is in her pink poodle skirt twirling her hair and singing 50's music.

Isn't she cute!

The good thing about show choir is dancing with a boy. :)
Here she is with her partner Jacob Pfifer
