Christmas around the block......

Indiana Christmas
Payton and Grace at my family's Christmas party
Besides our own Christmas we had four other Christmas parties that we were able to attend. Two in Ohio and two in Indiana. It made for a very fun Christmas and we enjoyed all the time spent with family.

Dax and Hayden at the Schmidt family Christmas!

Emma and a picture of the girls being a tunnel for a fire engine truck toy!

My aunt's from my dad's side and Grace about to open her first gift of the season!
Ohio Christmas!!
While we celebrated Christmas in Ohio we got the chance to see Gene's nephew Jordan wrestle at a meet on Saturday. It was so much fun and brought back many memories from my high school years when I was a wrestling manager. ;) We made signs and cheered him to victory!! The kids loved holding up the signs and cheering him on!! The picture on the left is supposed to have a D in it but from my angle you can't see it!!

Jordan won 4 out of his 5 matches and he pinned 3 of them!! Go Jordan!!! The pic on the right is of Grandma keeping the kids entertained by reading them a book. I thought it was cute to see Grace putting her arm around Dax.

Gene and I surprised his family with a chocolate fountain and an assortment of dipping fun!! Plus Chili's southwestern rolls! Gene actually got the chocolate fountain for me for Christmas! It was a yummy night!!

Grace and Hayden dressed up!

Dax all dressed up!

To bad we didn't get together. We have been very busy with christmas and devin's b-day. Now his g-pa siefert is sick. Keep him in your prayers please. I love holiday time but very hectic. My bathroom is getting a face lift now.
Glad to see you all had a good christmas! I'm sure the kiddos were spoiled. Tell Grace I will come and help her play with that dollhouse of hers. It looks fun.
