Just a bunch of Iowans on an extended adventure in The Lone Star State.

We started out our Christmas 2012 with a trip up to the farm to Mawdsleys. The kids love going to the farm and playing at Great Grandma and Grandpas house and of course seeing Bone. We got a picture of the kids with Great Grandma and Grandpa and while this one isn't perfect I thought it was cute.
This one is a little less silly.
My Grandpa was diagnosed with Mesothelioma before Christmas and at this point hospice is out to care for him along with Uncle Bone. We were glad to have been able to celebrate Christmas together this year and prayers are appreciated for his comfort and peace in the months ahead.
That same weekend we celebrated with my immediate family. The boys loved their new Angry Birds hats.
as well as all their new gifts.
Callie loved all her new dolls
and especially her new bike!
Ezra loved his socks:)
On Christmas Eve we went to church and had my parents over for pizza and to watch Home Alone. We tried to get a few pictures beside the Christmas tree...
Ezra was tired and not really in the mood to pose for pictures but this one is a little better.
With Callie posing for pictures is generally not a problem.
On Christmas morning we got up and did presents at our house.
Ezra had lots of help opening his present. We'll have to see if he still needs help next year. He did like to chew on his stocking though.
We stayed home all day on Christmas and did homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and then did a late lunch/early supper or Beef tenderloin, crab, potatoes and corn. It was great! We celebrated with the Angus Family the weekend after Christmas and somehow I always forget to have my camera, so if anyone has some pictures of the greatgrand kids with Grandma Max I would love a copy via email:) We didn't do a formal celebration with the Clark family this year as we had lots going on but we did get to see Grandma and Grandpa this past weekend for an informal late Christmas. We hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and 2013 has been going well so far!
