We had a great Christmas with the kids. They are starting to understand a little better and really enjoy Santa! Hopefully next year we can help them understand the meaning of giving rather than receiving. Sad to see it over but excited for next year. I am blessed to have our four angels and to make wonderful memories with them. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year!

Opening their gifts from Santa!

I am sure you have heard of Elf on the Shelf. Well ours is Jingles, she came to us a few days ago and the kids have had a lot of fun with her. I am hoping to be more creative next year with what she does... so many neat and creative ideas out there. Only a few more days left to REMEMBER to find a place for her!

I knew, having a puppy would be much more work than adopting a one or two year old dog... but it would give us a good idea. She had many puppy moments, that were expected... but we decided that right now it is just too much work having four kids. Temporarily it was great, gave the kids something to do, we got to know her better and help my aunt out.
We were sad to see her go, she is actually a very good dog - for a puppy! If we had to, we probably would have kept her, but we were happy to give her back! I plan on cleaning the carpets soon... she didn't do any worse than Jace... but between him and the dog having accidents on the floor, it is much needed!
Thanks for letting us take her for a couple months, we really enjoyed her but happy to see her home. Hope you and her both adjust well and can get back to normal!

I am looking forward to what the next year will bring. Each year it seems to get a little easier dealing with less and less tantrums. The girls are listening much better and hoping Jace will be there soon. We have lots planned for this year, lots of camping - should be fun!
