Tom' s 50 th

So we got to go to Big Tom's 50th Birthday and all the blogs are so cute ...but none have a picture of Ron and I!! So I thought, to prove we were there and dressed up I had better post. If you will look closely, the earrings I am wearing are from my original 70's collection and the macrame headband I have on used to be a belt! Well time does march on.

We did have so much fun. We danced and ate and talked and ate and danced! The deco was amazing and they had pictures up of Tom in his younger days. They did such a nice job.

Snippets of Christmas

We had our Doan Family Christmas last night and more that half of our children weren't there! But what a time was had with the ones we had. Gid is truly addicted to SLUSH. All the kids are growing so much. Noah is 2 weeks older than Annie and was surprised to find out she was taller. We were so amazed at Ashely's army crawl. One of the things that I love is that the kids love each other so much. All the girls had fun with Katie's jewelry making present. We tried to talk about the real meaning of Christmas and when Annie was asked what the wise men brought she calmly replied Gold, Freakin sense, and myrrh. It was a wonderful night. I love my family.

God Jul

"I truly believe that if we keep telling the Christmas story, singing the christmas songs, and living the christmas spirit, we can bring joy, happiness and peace to all the world." Norman Vincent Peale

I love this time of year, but this year has been a little too busy for what I would really like to reflect on. So next year I will plan better. Ron and I wish you all the happiness. We are grateful everyday for each other, our family, our faith. We love you all Merry Christmas and God Jul...to those who know.

Happy Birthday Josh!

Yes I did call Josh on his actual birthday! Now that our computer is at the shop, I just haven't found the right time to do my blogging and since I am at the shop and it is MONDAY, (my day off), I thought I would check the blogs. I read everyones blog, but I felt too overwhelmed to comment on them all. Suffice it to say I will work on this time thing and .....
I love you Josh and Happy Birthday!

Jared's Baptism

Jared Galbraith was baptized on Sunday November 30th, It was a wonderful time. Sarah was pretty emotional. It always seem that time goes way to fast when one of these big events happen.
We had a good crowd, just with the Galbraith and the Doan Gangs.
Jared and Kyle! We love cousins!
