Christmas Eve 2007

On the eve of our first Christmas with a family of 5 children there are so many new experiences.
We went to the Meema and BumpaKK Henn's today and ransacked their house with our crew. It was such a wonderful day. I tried to take lots of video, but it seems like you always miss the best stuff. I wanted to write down the best ones I heard today from the kids.

Erin (3): "We got beautiful presents!"
Levi (4): "I like to coming to your house, I'onna doit 'gain"
Isaac(6): "Dad, are you sure your not Santa?" My reply "Do i look like Santa?"
Isaac's reply: "I do know your not Santa, Dad, because you could never afford all the stuff!"
Kaylee (9):"I can't believe I actually have Heelies!!"
Jesse (20 mos.): "kiy kuhy" (which means thank you)

We also went to an evening worship at Meema's church. The kids were very well behaved and it helped to have Aunt Rae, Uncle Bob and Cousin Nate to help out. I was able to meet their new pastor (who gave and excellent message!) who told us how he'd been praying for our family. It meant so much to Tanya and I.
It was also excellent to see friends that I haven't seen in a long time and introduce them to each of our children and also meet their kids!
Merry Christmas!
