Some how Caroline took this picture of her, Nick and Sallie by sitting the camera on a stool in the floor. She is very proud of this picture. I hope you enjoy it.

Not a lot going on here. Trying to get the house organized for the new year and get all the toys put where they go and getting ready for THE BIG BIRTHDAY. That is what the kids are calling their 5th birthday. We are also counting down the arrival of baby Uhls #2. Melanie has about 6 weeks left. It is very exciting.
We have been spending a lot of time with Mollie and Gabe. This is a cute pic of Mollie and Caroline watching tv together.
Hope everyone is doing good. We love you all!

Happy Holidays

Ok Aunt Carol we got your message!

The Potts' family had a wonderful Christmas. We saw the live nativity (activity as Caroline calls it) The kids talked about the story of Jesus all the way home. We made cookies. This was a lot of fun, although John and I decorated most of them. We drove around looking at lights while singing Christmas carols and talking. These were some of the most memorable times. The kids got the message this year that Christmas is "not about the presents" and they told everyone. This was nice to see. John and I were very proud of them.

The Potts' family came over for Christmas eve. We watched football and talked, while the kids played. They got ready for santa by putting out milk and cookies and putting Reindeer food out for Rudolph. We read the Night before Christmas and the story of Jesus. Then it was off to bed. It took forever to get Caroline to sleep.

Christmas morning brought gifts from Santa. 3 for each just like the wise men gave Baby Jesus. Nick got golf clubs, an emergency station, and a baseball mat that hangs on the wall. Caroline got 12 dancing princesses castle, barbie, and barbie styling head. They were both very excited.

Then we headed off to L'burg. Everyone had a great time, especially the kids. Then it was off to Helen and Dave's. It was a wonderful day.

Tuesday Don, Vicki and the girls came home. So we had Christmas again. It has been a crazy few weeks, but fun at the same time. We are starting to get back into a routine.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday!
