"Mom, take my picture"

Pure joy!

These were taken because Andrew brought me my camera and insisted I take his picture. Then everyone wanted to join in the fun.

I have no idea what he is doing in this picture.

New Years Eve

We had a wonderful time on New Years Eve!!!! I realized that it was our last chance to see the lights at the zoo, and even though it was supposed to rain we still went. It started to rain just as we were walking to the front gate, but we didn't let that stop us. I'm glad we didn't, because it really only drizzled and we had so much fun riding the train around the zoo and seeing all of the lights. I was so grateful to be there with my wonderful family and just enjoy spending time with them. After the zoo, we went to dinner--Mexican. Andrew kept asking me to take pictures, and here are a few of them. Next, we went to a dance at church. The kids had fun eating and watching a movie and eating and dancing and eating. I wondered why we even bothered to buy them dinner.

Andrew and Jonathan
Jonathan eats more than Daniel and Emily (combined!) on a regular basis.

She was the most excited for the dance. The boys didn't really want to go, but I think they still had fun.

This child is a riot. When we were dancing, he realized that he was being watched by some teenage girls. So, what does he do? He turns around and shakes his little booty at them. They laughed and laughed. It was so funny!

Nathaniel and Andrew
They are always messing with each other.

Nathaniel and Emily had been planning all week to stay up until midnight. They were sound asleep on the couch by 11pm.
