Lyndon and I spent the day in Wichita Falls on Saturday. The crowds were horrendous, but we had fun anyway. We watched the movie "The Princess and the Frog", ate at one of Lyndon's favorite restaurants (Golden Corral), and viewed the lights at Midwestern first by car and then by foot. We both had a great time.

Carl and I went to a conference in Sioux Falls for a couple of days. It is a very pretty city; the falls are gorgeous, although they're not high. My favorite part of the trip was seeing the exact replicas of Michelangelo's David and Moses. They are cast in bronze rather than the marble statues in Italy, but still very beautiful.

Working on their treehouse with plumbing
Chips and dip with Pepere
Carl and Carl the dog
One room decorated for Christmas
Lyndon and Carl spent the night on Friday. Saturday they played outside for hours climbing their tree and building a "sink" with the garden hose and plant trays.
When they finally came inside, we decorated the nursery and watched Home Alone. Carl had never seen it, and he laughed and laughed. Carl spent Saturday night with us as well, and enjoyed sharing Pepere's favorite snack of chips and dip. How nutritious!
2 silly brothers
Aubrey and Kathleen
a beautiful blanket from Diane
Lauren and her oreo balls
The Lohman Family celebrated Christmas on Friday after Thanksgiving. We all gathered at the ranch, ate Mimi's great cooking, visited, watched the little ones and had a wonderful time. Lauren made some INCREDIBLE oreo balls that we all enjoyed. The girls had fun with our Chinese Christmas and there was only one theft; the culprit knows who she is! We really do have fun with this gift exchange, and we all end up receiving wonderful gifts. (That's because we all have good taste). We missed Diane, because she and Brian had to return home Thursday. We also greatly missed you, Kristin!
Everyone enjoyed seeing Baby Cody in person; he's a cutie pie. Aubrey received a cabbage patch from Mimi and Pawpaw. Coincidentally, the doll is named "Kathleen"; too bad it's spelled with a K. Aubrey loved the doll as well as Kathleen's ballet outfit. Carl and Lyndon spent the night with us and tried to scare Jason with Carl's remote control spider that he received from Mimi and Pawpaw. I wish the fun weren't over for another year!
