Christmas of years past

One of my co-workers brought to my attention that we have had a lot of Christmas card photos and she brought them all out and showed me why you loved looking at them. So, I thought that I would share with you the Christmas card pictures of years past. Oh, how we have changed....

Our First Christmas- 20022003- this was the year that everyone at Wal-Mart saw our photo because there were hundreds of them printed and hanging up through out the store
2004- notice Chris's Scooby-Doo pj's, we cropped them out of the real photo
I hope you enjoyed looking at them all. Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card 2008

You are probably wondering why you haven't received our annual photo Christmas card from us this year. Well, in an effort to cut our Christmas spending we aren't sending them out in the mail this year. I know that a few of you just throw them away anyways. So, if you really want it you can take it to Wal-Mart or some other photo place and they will print if off for you. We hope that you guys have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Melonie, Chris, Baxter, & Morgan

Traci & Seth's Rehearsal

Chris's little sister, Traci, got married this past weekend to a wonderful guy named Seth. They are enjoying their honeymoon in Branson right now so I thought that I would upload some photos of their wedding and rehearsal for her family and friends to look at. This posting is for the rehearsal and tomorrow I will upload some from her wedding.

It's Beginning to Look....

a lot like Christmas everywhere you go. I'm really far behind on posting things on our blog. A few weeks ago when Chris and I were putting up our Christmas Tree it snowed. So, we took a few pictures of it snowing and I meant to upload those photos and some photos of our holiday decorations. There will be more postings in the next few days of other events that have been going on the past few weeks. I can't believe that Christmas is just next week. Enjoy the pictures!

I read a lot of blogs and I have noticed that everyone's blogs are so nicely decorated. So, I decided to give our blog a face lift. I'm not sure if I really like the template that much. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think. Oh, if you get the posts through e-mail you'll actually have to visit the blog to see the changes. Chris hasn't seen the changes yet so he may veto my design for another one. Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. Make sure to eat plenty of food and spend time with loved ones. If you have to travel be careful out there and have a blessed day. I know that our families eat a TON and are now trying to recover from it by laying on the coach preparing for the next round of eating. Happy Thanksgiving!!
