Reason for the Season

Merry Christmas to all. Thanks to everyone who made it a wonderful season. Thanks to all those that helped us remember the reason for the season. Dad even got to carry on the tradition of painting faces on the manger scene participants.

What a nativity scene!

Oh Blessed Day!

Since the day she was born I've dreamed of this day. There have been times when I wanted to give up for fear that this day would never come...but alas it has arrived. Trisytn, the dear child, came to me last night and volunteered to wrap the presents that I bought for Tracey. Oh what a blessed day. 'Tis a Christmas miracle. My burdens have been lifted.

Christmas memories

I was thinking back on some of my favorite Christmas memories and remembered this as one of them. Every year we would play out the nativity scene as a family. Dad loved taking mascara and drawing mustaches on our faces.
This year Dad got a little more creative with the mascara. (you didn't know Joseph wore glasses?)
Thanks Mom and Dad for always making Christmas a special time of year for us!

California Thanksgiving

Over Thanksgiving all of Tracey's family on her Mom's side headed down to California to spend the holiday together. We had a great time and was able to do a lot of fun things. Here's a few pictures from all the fun we had.
Going for a bike ride.

Tracey and the kids were able to spend a little time down at the beach.

The kids had a great time swimming in Aunt Fawna's pool.

Aunt Fawna rented a blowup jungle gym for Thanksgiving for all the kids. They had a blast playing in that all day.

We had a blast at Sea World!

High five Jessey!

Ty loves Buzz.

Waiting in one of the many lines. Overall they weren't all that bad however.

Ty was blushing the whole time.

I don't know about the "happiest place on earth" but it sure was a lot of fun.
