Alamo Bowl......Oklahoma State vs Arizona!!

(36-10 Cowboys WIN!!!)

What are the odds that our 2 teams would match up in the Alamo Bowl this year??? We enjoyed watching the game in Phoenix with G-ma Lor Lor & Baby Jim!! Mom was happy with the not so much! But, unlike the last time our teams played against each other in the sweet one slept on the couch this year...ha ha!

Ooh well, they will get a chance to meet again the next two Stillwater next year and Tucson the following. We're hoping to make both games!! We printed these pics of the girls on a canvas and framed them for part of our parents Christmas gifts this year. I think they were a hit!!

"road trippin" to Arizona!!

After 2 months of being homeless and a fun Christmas celebration in Oklahoma, it was finally time to make our way to our new home out west!! Destination day 1.....Albuquerque....and day 2....PHOENIX!!

After driving 12+ hours in the car, we made it to adorable Albuquerque, checked into our quaint hotel in Old Town and were all enjoying a fabulous mexican dinner until Emma vomited all over mom!! Poor baby, she had been complaining that her stomach hurt all evening. We were quite a sight and had to leave immediately but laughed it off as my mom's saying goes "parenting is not for wimps" but an hour later Jon was ill.....uggh!!

Luckily Ava & Mom escaped the were are in Old Town Albuquerque before Emma & Dad got sick.....

G-ma Nancy and Papa Charles watched the girls for us and we enjoyed a wonderful weekend in the Lou! It was sad to say goodbye to good friends, but we were also so happy to be able to celebrate all Jon's accomplishments!! Finishing fellowship early, getting his MPH with a 4.0, all the while working full time and keeping up with his house full of girls!! We are so proud of him!!

Christmas Program!

The girls were so lucky to be able to join in the Christmas Program at the First Baptist Church in Pawnee. They had so much fun holding their "baby Jesus" baby dolls, singing and loved every minute of sweet! So proud of our girls!! It's so wonderful to see them involved and beginning to learn that Jesus is the real reason we celebrate Christmas!!

Happy Thanksgiving from South Dakota!!

Since Jon had 3 weeks off, we took full advantage and decided to go visit GG and all our family in South Dakota!! GG was so excited to see us and had so many delicious and wonderful meals! Aunt Liz and Uncle Chuck hosted a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner at their home and even had a "special table" for the girls!! The food was beyond amazing.....just thinking about the brussel sprouts makes my mouth water. It was the girls first time to meet Cousin Ann and they were pals right away! They even snuggled to watch a classic "Beauty & the Beast". We enjoyed visiting with Jon & Pat too. Cousin Charlie and Emma went to work building with blocks.....just like old times :) We even went to a Christmas Parade with Liz, Chuck & Charlie which was a little cold, but so much fun! We saw Santa...and the Grinch!! No trip is complete without going to the Falls and this time was extra special as it was lit up with "ooh my goodness, these are the most beautiful lights in the whole world" per Ava. Thanks for a wonderful trip!! We miss you all!!

Hello Sunny Arizona!!

We are so lucky Jon has 3 weeks off and we were able to meet him in Phoenix to visit G-ma Lor Lor & Baby Jim and check out some rentals for our new home. We have decided to rent for a few months while we search for the perfect house with the perfect pool with lots of "water features" per Emma! The girls were so good while we were out apt hunting all day, we decided to bring them home some new "princess" dresses and I don't think they took them off the rest of the trip!!

Spending time on the farm....

We were so lucky G-ma Nancy came to stay with us our last week in St. Louis to help with moving and watching the girls while we officially got our house SOLD!! She was a lifesaver and the girls had lots of fun with G-ma. The fun continued as we moved into G-ma Nancy & Papa Charles house for a couple of months while Jon finishes work (official last day is Christmas Eve). We had so much fun spending quality time with family!! A special Thank You to G-ma Nancy for all the delicious meals and "Aunt Chelsea" for all the help with the girls!!!
