Nicolas' Fourth Birthday

Nicolas turned 4 years old a few weeks ago.

He had a snake birthday party to celebrate.

Cute babies

One of the games was seeing how many snakes the children could jump over.

Meanwhile, the little girls played with dolls.  :)

Eva liked the balloons

Birthday Boy!

"This is what my snake's doing."

Happy to get a violin!

Happy birthday, Nicolas!

Christmas Day

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

This verse from John 8 is part of this table decoration

Jonathan came home for almost a week over Christmas.  On Christmas morning, Steven, Anna, Eva, and Mama Flo all joined us for breakfast and opening presents.

Christmas at Mama Flo's

There's a new baby in the family this year, our cousin's little girl, Carlynn.  We all enjoyed getting to meet her when they came down for Christmas.

 Emily made the little girls matching Christmas dresses, and Tamsyn (Carlynn's mom) made their headbands and hairbows.

Eva likes the stairs at Mama Flo's house!

Everyone enjoyed watching Carlynn open her Christmas presents.

Eva got a new puzzle from Aunt Judy and Uncle Phil!
