Christmas Time in Missouri

Thanks for the comments! Since we still do have some readers I will post some more pictures from the holidays.

Two days after Christmas we took our first road trip as a family of 5. We were headed to Shannon's parents (Grammy & Pop's) in Missouri. We did not know how the two little ones would do in the car for so long, especially since Noah tends to be a screamer (especially in situations like being in his car seat). We left our house at about 4:30am and arrived at their house at about 6:30pm. The kids did better than expected although there was some screaming.

We had a good visit, the kids all did very well, and Joel and Pop had lots and lots of fun spending as much time as possible outside riding on the tractor, walking on the trails, and throwing sticks in the stream.

In the car on the way there:

Hello...of course you need to keep the blog up. I check it at least twice a week. We really miss you guys. The kids are so precious and Joel is getting so big. The boys like to see how big he's getting on your blog. We really need to get up to Lubbock and see you. Well, looks like all is GREAT. We love and miss you guys...take care.

Looks like you all had fun in MO! I'm sure Grammy Nancy was glad to have all her grand babies together!
