Heather Williams - Hallelujah

Ice Skating with the Earl girls

Jenna wanted to try ice skating, so we decided to get the Earl girls in on the sction. We went to Ice Town in Riverside. It was fun--even the cold and the slipping and sliding. Jenna thought it was easier than roller skating, here are some pics:


This is where we found Miah most of the time!



Jenna and Michaela actually got to the point where they could hang on to each other and make it around the rink.

December






Okay, you know you are busy when you are posting Christmas pictures and it is almost February! Here are a few for those of you who would like an update :)



Christmas was spent with family and friends--the BEST kind of Christmas! Jenna asked to go roller skating, ice skating, and for us to redo her bedroom. We did it all! Owen just wanted to PLAY--good enough! Here are the pics!



Jenna is SO good about reading to her brother

Family and friends came over for Christmas breakfast





Owen got a new bike





We went to Pat's brother's house for Christmas Eve. This is Jenna and her cousin Jake








Jenna Owen and Kelsey Waters







Jenna got a special singing part at Christmas Eve service this year





Redoing the room--she picked orange and green--it is SO her!





We had a dance party video in her new room, but Pat would kill me if I posted it :).









And....drum roll please...the finished product!

November Happenings!

Okay, I've realized that a once a month posting is working well..so...here it goes...
First off..Happy 40th to my forever friend Charlene!
God had it planned at the right time...that this sweet little thing would grow up into a beautiful woman who serves God, her family, and teaches children with her whole heart.
We also believe that we were sisters separated at birth :)--because we are SO much alike. I mean don't you see it?? :)
Jerry (with a little help) actually pulled off a surprise party







Twins??










The cake from Michelle's bakery in Redlands was DE-LI-CIOUS!






Char actually got to open presents in front of an audience






Carolyn's chocolates were a BIG hit!





Friends and family made it an awesome birthday, not to mention the trip the day after and hot air balloon ride! We love you Char! We hope your 40th was just as wonderful as you are!





Then...it was time for our Thanksgiving family trip to Silver Strand State Beach in San Diego! We packed up the camper and headed out with our Thanksgiving dinner in our little fridge!




We went to Sea World on Thanksgiving day--a great day to go by the way. The kids got up close and personal with a walrus.


I think Shamu was trying to hit Owie in the head here???
The kids in Elmo's bouncy house thing :)

The ultimate family shot--Elmo, Abbie, and US!



We thought this poinsettia tree was cool
Of course we HAVE to visit a hat shop!



NO--it is SPARKING CIDER--geez!

The man by his fire
Owen and Jenna patiently waiting for S'MORES!




It was cold, but breathtaking


Our crazy monkey



What I am Thankful for:
Jesus--what you have done for me and the way you made beauty from my ashes, I am eternally grateful. My prayer is that EVERYONE would be gripped by your grace and come to the knowledge of the REAL reason we are here on this earth.
My family and friends--I am a blessed woman beyond belief, and I love you all!
December is upon us--may we be grateful every day for the blessings that surround us.
