We went for our annual trip to Welton Park last night.
The lights were as always very pretty. It was extra cold this year.
(If you look really close at Joshua's hands, you can see a new trend..........a sock on one hand and a glove on the other. One glove got lost on the way there, be we found it in the driveway when we returned.)

Saturday night and Sunday morning, we had our Christmas play at church. It was wonderful once again. Everyone did a really good job.....as for our family......Matt was awesome on the drums and John did a wonderful job on his solo. There were a couple of technical problems but it worked out just fine.
Here is a photo of all the kids singing at the beginning of the play. Joseph is on the first row on the left(third person) and John is on the third row on the right side(fifth person from the right).
Here is a picture of John in the small singing group. They sang Tell Me the Story. Doesn't he look so handsome and grown up in his shirt and tie?

The boys had fun decorating cookies today. They turned out really good.
Joseph really likes to put on the gum drops...........I mean he REALLY likes to put them on. His one cookie had 6 gum drops on it's face. You can see it in the bottom left corner.
Mommy had fun too........

It's always a challenge for us to get a good family photo. There is always someone who is not looking at the camera or in my case making a really crazy face. This year was not different. Here are a couple of takes.

Matt after several takes.

We were enjoying the new CD Matt's mom got us, while we were decorating.........

Hunting camp was very fun this year! We got to hunt in real snow, and to top it off, Dad and I both got bucks. He got his Tuesday morning, then I went and set in his spot Wednesday morning and killed mine about 50 feet from where his was standing.
Like I said, there was some snow...............about 10 inches on the picnic table when we arrived on Sunday, and we got about 4 more inches while we were there. Tuesday evening and night, the wind gusts were between 40 and 50 mph. By Wednesday, there were some serious drifts.

John was really scared that his friends were not going to come over, because this is what we woke up too. But it worked out.........all the snow was gone by the time they came.
We can't believe our baby has grown so much. He's quite the little man.
John (2 months)
He had a great birthday. His highlight was spending time with his friends. It was really nice. I am thankful for the great friends God has given to him.

We are studying birds in Science this year. We have been making bird feeders, putting out seed and watching to see what birds come by. John and Joseph are enjoying it very much. They like to look at things up close and personal.

Yesterday, I decide to try a new hair style. I cut it myself, if you didn't guess. When I came out of the bathroom John said "did you cut your hair?". It is at least 4 inches shorter in the back but the front is the same. Joseph didn't even notice.
As most of you know, Matt hit a deer a couple of Saturdays ago with his truck. Because the truck was not worth much and our insurance didn't cover any of the damages, we have decided to go ahead and get Matt a different more Manly truck. It's definitely not new but it looks new for a 1999 and has pretty low miles. I'm sure when you see Matt driving he will have a Really Big Smile on his face!
It's snowing here this morning. I can't believe it. It will be Christmas before long. Hope everyone is enjoying the changing of the seasons. It didn't stay fall very long though.....that's a bummer.

Yesterday I was thinking what should me and Joseph do. Then I thought lets build a leaf pile. So we got the rake and piled leaves. I thought I should snap a few pictures. Here's what I got.-John

We spent the last few days in Canaan Valley with Matt's family. It was a very nice trip just hanging out and enjoying the fall color.
