This is baby Avery (Cory and Lindsey's cute little girl). Owen calls her baby Ovary. It is so funny. I tried to get video but he won't concentrate on what I want him to say and wants to take the camera away from me. It's super cute and makes me laugh! Baby Ovary and Lindsey came to visit last week and we loved having them come and say "hi". Cute little girl! We love you baby Ovary...

This year Expeditors decided to have a 1940's gangster gambling party. Not my idea of a good time. However, I had fun with Jeff playing with fake money. They gave everyone $1000 dollars to start with and then they gave out raffle tickets for how much you made. Jeff turned his into $50,000 and won a purse. He really had his heart set on winning a leather lap top case. Oh well, you win some and loose some! We had a great time dressing up and going out together.

I love the smell of Christmas... The warm cinnamon vanilla fragrance, all the pretty lights and decorations. The spirit of Christmas always comes over me and makes me feel so rejuvenated. This special time of celebrating the birth of our Savior is so special and we are so fortunate to have so many great things in our lives and so many wonderful people around us.
I just love Christmas!
We finally got our house all decked out. The kids are loving the tree and all the fun things to play with and take apart. Jeff and Aaron put lights up on our house and they nearly killed themselves. They look fantastic! I have been talking about Christmas with Owen and I'm pretty sure he understands what it's all about. Kaebrie will not leave the lights plugged into the wall. She goes up to them time and time again saying "no,no" as she unplugs them.
Jeff and I leave for our cruise in one week. I'm getting really excited but am nervous to be away from my kiddos. My mom is coming to our house to stay with the kids the whole time we are gone. Mom-I'm extremely grateful for you helping us out. Owen and Kaebrie are looking forward to it.
