December 4

Casey with Santa at Chick Fil A! She was not afraid at all this year, marched right up to him and told him she wanted the Wizard of Oz Movie!
Sitting with Daddy at the Batallion Christmas Party
Waiting to see Santa
Ring her bell to get Santa to come!
Listening to the reading of The Polar Express before Santa came...
Daddy and Kendall at the party...

Getting ready to go to the party! So sweet!

Hi All~~

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and you are well into preparing for the Christmas season. We had a nice Thanksgiving. Kyle's parents were here with us. We deep fried our first turkey and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I ended up with a nasty cut to my left index finger--went to the ER thinking I may need stitches but got away with a little Dermabond. I was more sore from my tetanus shot the next day! Those sweet potatoes were certainly worth it, though!

We decorated for Christmas the days following Thanksgiving. We put up Kyle's parents artificial tree this year and it looks fantastic! Casey really enjoyed helping to decorate this year. She is having so much fun getting all ready for Christmas. We've started a chain to help her grasp how long it will actually be until Christmas. We also felt it was important this year to help her understand WHY we really celebrate Christmas, so we've been talking a lot about Baby Jesus and his birthday. It's helped that they also reinforce this at her preschool!
Kendall is such a doll. She is really talking and smiling a lot and trying to sit up. She LOVES interacting with the world around her. She's sleeping better and better, it seems like just yesterday that we were getting up all night long with her and now it's usually just once a night with a bedtime between 10/11pm.
We hope to see you all when we come up to PA from 12/27-1/3! My parents are hosting an open house on New Years Eve Day starting at 2pm....stop by!!!
Love you all,
Katie, Kyle, Casey, Kendall and Jimmy
