A Little Recap (Oct, Nov, Dec)

I have been so terrible about keeping up with our blog. I have so much that I want to share because so much has happened in the last few months. Here is a quick little recap of October, November and December.

In OCTOBER, we said good-bye to our old house.....and said good-bye to friends at a Halloween partyand drove to Houston to stay with Grandma Joan and Grandpa Dub until we were to report to Cannon AFB. We had a great time going to fun places like pumpkin patches, the children's museum, and the air show.

In NOVEMBER we headed to Clovis, NM and moved into our new home!

Gehrig had his first day of pre-school at Clovis Christian School

For Thanksgiving we drove back to Houston to spend the holiday with Grandma Joan and Grandpa Dub! Kelly and Gabe came too, and we finally go to meet Cousin Allie for the first time! Three little cute turkeys before bed after a fun and yummy Thanksgiving

Upon arrival to Cannon AFB, the 4 new guys were put in charge of the Christmas float for the Clovis Parade of Lights. Since the 3rd SOS squadron is the Dragons, we designed a float with a theme of around "A very Scaley Christmas, complete with a castle depicting the squadron logo all over it!

The "other side" of the float! Our side of the float. The kids were so bundled up under their dragon costumes because it was SO COLD that night!

Visiting Santa; Take 1...the Santa at the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on base. Colin was a little unsure.
Visiting Santa; Take 2...Santa at the Squadron's Children's Christmas Party. Colin wanted nothing to do with it. After hunting, we found the perfect Christmas tree!
All loaded up and ready to take our new tree home to decorate

Gehrig was one of the Three Kings in his school's Christmas program, "Angels Aware." Here he is on stage before his big performance!

I was so disappointed that he was in the back and I couldn't see him really well. The three kings are kneeling down and admiring Baby Jesus in the manger.

Visiting Santa; Take 3....the Mall Santa. This time Colin did great and the lady snapping the professional pic even got him to smile!It was so great to have our very first visitors to our new home. Grandma Carole and Grandpa Jerry drove down from Denver to spend Christmas with us!

What a wonderful Christmas it was, and what a wonderful year it has been! We are so thankful for all the friends and family that God has blessed us with!
