not something we saw very often living in Texas or Oklahoma but this year we had a beautiful white Christmas not only in Kansas but when we went home to visit Oklahoma!! It was a rough Christmas with out Bryan's mother and her passing last month but she was still there in presence and I think it was still a blessed one. Brooklyn also had her first school play this month!! She was an angel!

Aidan requested to have a combined birthday party with his sister since she is born the day before him! What kind of big brother still does that at his age? I love that little guy!! So they had a combined bowling party together with friends from school/playgroup and had an awesome turn out! Peyton had elmo and Aidan had sports!
