Grandma wanted a standing picture to show how tall
the kids have become.

They are growing up too fast for me….

Grandma and Grandpa, thanks for having us down!
We had fun.

Grandma and Grandpa took us to this huge Christmas light display.

As a fundraiser for Easter Seals, they close off a local park and decorate
the whole area.

Many of the displays have “moving” parts.  On this bicycle, the wheels
appeared to turn.


This was one of the bigger displays near the end of the path.

December 25 Merry Christmas!

The kids are getting ready to open their presents.

Little Lady got to open the first present because she found
the pickle ornament.


Little Lady gave Grandpa and Grandma a nutcracker
for Christmas.


Mom was very worried about the presents, but top to bottom
the kids were happy with everything they opened!


P&T get ready to leave with an armed escort.
(we played several Nerf gun fights… great way to celebrate

Cool sunset…


We had a wonderful Christmas Eve meal!  Full table and full bellies!


Little Lady wrapped in present bows.


Aunt J and Little Man came with me.  We made a withdrawl from
the Donut Bank.  Since they will be closed on Christmas day, I bought
enough for two days.  (the lady behind the counter thought I was looney)


Tinkerbell found her favorite spot, cuddled up in the
covers on our bed.

Aunt J came down to Grandma/Grandpa’s house for Christmas!

She made a delicious apple pie.  If you look close, you will
see Christmas trees on top of the crust.


Uncle C and Rocky came over.

Grandma gave Rocky a new toy for Christmas.

Our friends invited us over for a Christmas dinner.  It was yummy!

They made Mom a cherry pie (her favorite).  The pie pan was a gift as
well.  It was  “Pi” pan (it had the Pi symbol at the bottom, under the pie,
with 3.14….. around the rim)



 Good friends, good food, good beer.

The kids and I had a massive Nerf gun fight by Christmas
tree light.

(Little Man would send Little Lady into the frey and
sit back and sniper me)

Last year, I bought a Groupon for Climb Time, and indoor climbing arena.

It was the first time I ever tried rock wall climbing.  I went with a friend
of mine.

We were older than the next person by at least 20 years.
(felt like narcs)

We both had a good time. (It is harder than it looks)


Even though it is the end of the night, we are sore and
tired, my friend still managed a smile.

This was the end of season basketball celebration.  The two men performed
a variety of tricks with basketballs.

Little Lady was one of the first volunteers.  (she is so brave) 


He spun and ball and juggled on top of this huge unicycle.


At the end he spun 8 balls at once.

Good ball control…… ooooooosh

Last weekend, Aunt J donated blood at Lucas Oil Stadium (Colts Blood Drive)

She put her name in a raffle and won tickets!

Since she already had tickets, she gave them to me and Little Man!

 p.s. poor Aunt J is recovering from burn on her hand…. or a bite from
Toto… we are not sure.


Even though it was high up, we sat in a lively section.
