...spending the last day of 2010 all together at home.

May God bless you in 2011!

(FYI, when this photo was taken, it was about 40°, but not even 30 minutes earlier it was nearly 60°! And it only took a few minutes, so nobody froze :) )

...watching your kids enjoy their gifts on Christmas morning.

She's not in the picture, but here is Sierra's picture...

Even Sniper was enjoying his new toys...

Merry Christmas!!

...surviving the 2nd grade 'Pet Show' with a cat that has never been outside.

I have to say, we received a lot of compliments about how mellow Sniper was, and what a good kitty he was. He really was great, though he wasn't too sure about the horse and cow. Iowa sure has some interesting pets...

...freshly mopped floors.

Though I tried a new wood floor cleaner, and it seemes to have left a purple hue in one area...

...watching your daughter play a sport she loves.

And also watching her team place 2nd in the tournament!

More to come on my blah'g!

...hearing your baby say the Pledge of Allegiance.

After only going to school a few weeks, Elise has gotten the pledge down pretty well. I'm so proud of her - there's a lot of big words to learn!
(Every time we drive by Kid's World in Sac City, without fail, Elise points out her little friend's preshool. This time was no exception.)

...finally having that pipe replaced!

 Robert did a great job at patching the pipe about a month or so ago, but it finally just busted through. It was BAD. Nothing in the bathroom or basement (the bathroom was an add-on at some point, so the water just sprayed onto the dirt in the crawl space), so that saved a big headache.
Could have been worse, but it wasn't, so I'm grateful.
OH! Another thing to be happy about - the plumber owes Robert for some computer work, so his call will just be deducted from the bill, so nothing out of pocket!

...trying to find Mr. Toad

"Where are you, Mr. Toad?"

"Can't...quite...reach you."

(I took these from inside, to the blur is from the window. Just wanted to explain :P)

...riding a bike without training wheels.

I told Abby that her little best friend just started riding her bike without training wheels, so as soon as Daddy came home, she asked him to take her training wheels off. She's asked before here & there over the summer, but always at times it couldn't get done.
I told her that it might take practice before she figures out balance, but she got it right away, albeit a little bit wobbly, but we have our lumpy, bumpy, cracky sidewalk to thank for that!

...spending quality time with Caitlin.

And if Caitlin was writing this, she'd say, "Happiness is getting to order my own soda and churros!"
