I am finally getting around to posting pictures from Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve going between parties at Chase's grandpa's house and my dad's house. Thankfully, they live across the street from each other. We spent Christmas day at my mom's house and Chase's parents' house. Christmas break made me look forward to summer vacation. As usual, I was not ready to go back to work. Chase did not get much of a break since he was asked to work over Christmas.


We survived our Christmas parties...barely. Norovirus (stomach flu) spread through my family pretty quickly. I have not caught it yet, but Chase was not so lucky. We got a lot of things for our house. There were a lot of things we didn't have and have never needed until now like rakes, shovels, water hoses, the list goes on! We also got some fun things like a porch swing, a bird feeder, a flag pole, and a very cool door bell that you can download MP3s onto.

We took a trip a couple weeks ago to see Kyle. He's working as a strength and conditioning coach for the Altoona Curve, a minor league baseball team in Pennsylvania. We spent part of a day in the resort Kyle's living in, and went to a game that evening. Pictures are in the gallery.

This is almost a month late, but we hope everybody had a good holiday season. Ours was nice; very relaxing despite our yearly Odyssey across Michigan. Here are the pictures. Heidi started her paid internship this month. She's responsible for more schools now, which results in more work and more driving. We're really looking forward to the added income though. Hopefully we'll finally be able to save up some money, and get out of apartments.

The pictures should be up by the time anybody reads this. They won't have any captions yet, but they'll be there. Next on the list: New Years
