A few more pictures from the holidays

I just found another 250 pictures that were still on the camera and not downloaded yet so here's the highlights.

We left on the night of the 23rd after I got done working, as you can see we didn't get to my parents house until after these twos bedtime.

Opening presents with Grandpa Spence.

The family picture on Christmas Eve.

Playing in the new wagon Grandma and Grandpa Wagner got him.

Playing with the little people garage Grandpa and Grandma Welder got him and uncle Brent put together.

Driveing back home with a car packed to the gills with new toys.

We finally had our family Christmas at home the next week, and Jack was happy to finally see present under the tree!!

Probably his favorite of what we got him.

My favorite of what he got me. He also got me a football trophy that he painted himself, with mom's help of course.

He's learned to blow kisses to people.

Ringing in the new year all together. Jack happened to wake up shortly before midnight so we kept him up to celebrate. I got home about an hour before midnight after a long day at work.

After the ball dropped Jack decided to hit up the bubbly. (kidding of course)

That about wraps up the last couple of months with our family we'll try to keep the updates coming a little quicker from now on.

Here's a couple pictures just so you don't think the kids all smiles and kisses all of the time.

Luke's update

Since Steph hasn't been updating this lately I'll try to throw a little something together for everyone. This is my first try at it so if things end up looking weird so be it. We bought ourselves a new camera for Christmas since our old one died. We love the new camera but it took us a while to figure out how to get the pictures on the computer so a lot of these pictures are from a while back.

Putting garland up on the tree can be a very exciting event, just ask Steph.

Putting the finishing touches on the tree.

The finished product!! (you can't really tell but the ornaments are all on the top half of the tree)

This is my biggest contribution to the holiday decorations.

Playing the part of Rudolph.

Riding the horse Grandma Marvel and Aunt Linda bought him for Christmas. Deffinitely one of his favorites this season.

Running in the first snow of the season. Yes, he is barefoot. He ran out there before we could stop him, but it was a very short run in the snow.

Caught looking for his Christmas presents under the tree.

Loaded up in the car to go somewhere. Look at the beautiful blue eyes he got from his mom.

Ham it up for the camera. He has learned to smile for the camera recently and show off his pearly whites. In this picture he still only had 6, now he's up to 8.

Jack loves spending time at his wee-school with Steph and all of the other kids!!

This is the plate that Jack made me for Christmas, definitely the best present I got this year, followed very closely by the Wii my parents got us. Unfortunately, we don't have pictures of the reaction when we opened the Wii at their house. We were quite suprised and excited.
