I'm being harassed...

Since I've gotten some "hate mail" lately to update the blog, I figured I better! I know, I know. I said I was going to be better at updating this but seriously--life gets in the way! Why does life have to be so busy? I always think it is going to slow down only to find that it speeds up. We had a blessed holiday season. We had the opportunity to take the 10 hour drive down to Texas to visit Gramma Kacky and Poppa G, Uncle Mark and Aunt Amy over Thanskgiving. It was a very relaxing 6 days down in Texas and was beautiful weather the entire time we were there. We also go to see Shoo Shoo (Justin's grandma) who is nearly 90 years old. It was a great trip and we are ever so thankful for all of our blessings.

Over Christmas, we made the much shorter trek to Newell to spend time with my family. We spent Christmas Eve with my parents and siblings. Uncle Mud even made it for Christmas this year, which was a blessing! We spent Christmas Day at Grandma Donna's and then came back Christmas night. The roads back to Des Moines that night were HORRID but we made it and were able to bring Kenley back with us for a fun-filled week. He and Alexis had a BLAST!! We went sledding, to the Hockey game, chuck E. cheese, mall play place and hung out at home a lot.

Here are some pictures of the past couple of months. Keep checking back because we're in process of making a video of our miracle for our Team Alexis walk this year. We need to do it up right since she is the ambassador child! :) Hope all is well with everyone!

Surprising Grandma Kacky at work...she didn't know we were coming!

And surprising Poppa G too!
