Here's some highlights from last week of AJ's first basketball game of the season. He's playing on a local rec. league team. His team won easily.

We had a Christmas/New Year's celebration with Matt's parents and sister tonight.
Classic Chloe-I love it!
Guess who got this present?
Aunt Buffy made this amazing blanket for AJ. She almost got it done, just has to finish piecing it together.
Matt found this pendent for his Mom, who was just given a Pandora bracelet for her 10 years of services at Asbury University. It's the Ethiopian flag inside a heart.
AJ wanted a study pillow like the girls have.
The girls love to listen to Adventures in Odyssey
The whole family pooled their resources for Grandpa's gift. A new LED TV for his bedroom.
You know your family loves you when they give you your Xmas present in this festive gift bag.
Ale-8 shirt for Matt
Craft projects from Aunt Buffy
Aunt Buffy knows how to get to this boy's heart-NIKE gear!

This year we celebrated Christmas in Indiana with Amy's family. Christmas morning, we opened presents with our immediate family.
Soccer ball iPod case
Essie is obsessed with cutting things so a multi-design scissor set seemed like an appropriate gift for her.
AJ says "I dominated..." all the time so a UK shirt that says "Dominate" fit the bill.
The week before Christmas there were some packages that appeared at our house from "Dave, Bob, & Larry". The kids have been totally confused who would give them a gift as they don't know any group of people by that name. The video explains it all.

This is definitely a post for the grandparents and aunt and uncles. The girls had their Christmas program last night at school. Their grade has been studying Christmas celebrations in Mexico and several of the songs are in Spanish. The girls are in the back row and are kinda hard to see but Chloe is in black & white strips and Essie has on pink stripes.
There's our beautiful girls!
When did they get so grown-up?

Just realized this post never got published in October. Not sure why, but here ya go!
After one of AJ's soccer games that was a few counties away, we decided to head to one of our favorite local restaurants-Wallace Station!
The kids enjoyed playing horseshoes while we waited for our food.
Dad loves these enormous sandwiches
And so does AJ!
ok, so do I
Just a quick update on the giant compost pile.
When the kids & I finished dumping all the leaves & garden debris in the pile, it measured 8 feet!
But then garden plans changed a bit again and we had to expand the compost pile.
