Jeremy's Christmas Present

For Christmas, Jeremy got a brand new Craftsmen tool chest.
He was like a kid in a candy shop. It is something he always wanted but would never buy for himself.
Here is a picture of the beauty!

Here is how he organized his tools before!

Here is his organization now!

Can you believe he is so organized? He stole the mat that keeps my rug from sliding all over the living room so he could line his tool box. He doesn’t want it to get all scratched up!

Then he spent all day organizing his shop. Man! If this is all it takes to keep him organized I may just get him one for the house!

Macy Comes to Town

The Wickerts got their kids a golden retriever puppy for Christmas! She is a cute little thing. We helped watch her for a few days before she went home on Christmas morning.
The girls weren't too sure about this.
I think Kenai was thinking, "Great another puppy to try to follow me when I am hunting birds. Didn't we just get done training Sydney?"
And Shylo was thinking, "I just got rid of my own puppies and now I have to deal with another one. Oh well, I guess I better show her the ropes."

Awh, she is a sweet little girl most of the time!

I am not sure Christmas is the best time to have a new puppy in the house. Here Macy got a hold of my Christmas tree garland, she was tugging and growling and almost pulled the whole tree over. It was actually pretty cute. Kenai came running over to stop her before she got in to much trouble!

Our kids and their stockings!

We got up early Christmas morning and boy, oh boy were our girls excited it was Christmas! As is tradition in our family, we let them open their stockings right away! They were the happiest kids on the block.

Here are some pictures for the grandparents to see them opening their stockings! MOM if you click on the pictures they will get bigger!

Playing with their new presents!

Kenai was so exhausted after playing,she cuddled up with her new tiger and tiger stripped ball and drifted off to sleep.

Christmas Dogs

The other day I was getting the house decorated for the Christmas season and I ran across the girls Christmas hats. So I decided to take their Christmas picture for our Christmas letter.

Well, I got an ok picture but I wanted a better one so I proceeded to attempt a better shot. However, they just would not cooperate any longer. Before I knew it, there was a whole blown out fight.

This is how it ended…

Taking our children’s pictures can be quite daunting at times.
