I have to admit, when Tyson returned from Home Depot with our Christmas Tree, I was less than enthused.
But after we had the tree all decorated with memories, because we only keep ornaments that have a story behind them, "Star" was the most beautiful tree I had ever seen! (Our tree was named "Star" by a unanimous vote, submitted by Kinzi)

When childhood inevitably comes to an end, I hope that my children will have memories more sweet than bitter, more happy than sad, more love than contention, more peace than stress, more faith than fear. Both Tyson and I were given the gift of a happy childhood, and it has made all the difference. Thanks be to good parents everywhere! You are loved! You are needed!

We like to party, party (to the tune of Madagascar's "Move It, Move It")! So we ordered 19 pizzas. We had loud horns and silly string and confetti. When Tyson came in, he was blasted from every angle as we all sang a booming chorus of Happy Birthday. We danced under the direction of the wonderful brother and sister Graham. We ate carrott cake. We enjoyed eachother's company until late in the night. We all love Tyson so much and are glad he was born.

Christine brought the sunshine from Arizona on her visit last weekend. We went apple picking, swimming, out to lunch at Noodles and Co., and to the Women's conference. We shopped the clearance rack at Target and got some sweet shirts for $1.98! We stayed up late playing Quiddler, drinking Fresca and eating Bar-B-que kettle chips. We played games with the kids until they were worn out (which is pretty hard to do). And, as Tyson told me later, Kinzi and Buzz and Ezra HOWLED after we left for the airport. Howling is worse than just crying. We love you Christine! Thanks for your love and support and sweet thoughtfulness. You are our sunshine!
