We started a new tradition with my side of the family where we get together Christmas Eve morning. My dad will make a big breakfast and then we open gifts.

Luke can now sit all by himself! Here is a picture with Luke sitting up himself with me and his buddy Winston.

Christmas Party

We got to celebrate Christmas with all of my cousins from my side this year on the Sunday before Christmas. My dad has 11 brothers and sisters, I have 49 cousins, and a lot of 2nd cousins! We have to rent out a ballroom in a hotel for the party. Here are some pictures from that day.

Luke's Dedication

John and I dedicated Luke to the Lord last Sunday, the 9th of December. My dad and Sally came up the day before. We had a lot of fun with them. We played cards and they got to play with Luke. After the dedication at church, we went to John's parents for lunch. Heidi made one of her famous cakes! We had a great time, and are thankful for everyone who came to support us and our little guy! Our prayer is that Luke will grow up to know and love our Lord and Savior.

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving with both of our families! We spent Thanksgiving day at John's parents. We got to see his grandparents and cousins from Hershey. For some of them, it was the first time they got to meet Luke! We had a really nice dinner!

On Friday, we went to my dad's house and had another Thanksgiving dinner there. All of my family was in for the holiday. We had a great time! Joe and Tonya were there too! We were very excited to see them! They made the trip from Oklahoma. We got to stay at my dad's with them until the next Tuesday. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures while we were there. We loved spending time with everyone, but unfortunately, everytime I leave my dad's I feel I gain a few more pounds! It must be all of Sally's good cooking.

Here are a few photos taken on Thanksgiving day at John's parents.
