Christmas Pictures

Well I can't believe I'm so behind in posting Christmas picture. For that matter, I am just behind in posting anything recently. We've been extra busy since Christmas with working on the house and now packing. This coming week we are making the big move to The Village and I am super excited about it. This will be our 3rd time to move in the past 9 months, but Lord willing our last move for a long while.

We had a wonderful Christmas and the kids were too cute so I have to post these pictures, even if they are really late.

Having Fun

Two weeks ago I watched Meredith, Drake, Lerato and Monica for the day while Amber, Louie, Bob and Susan went to the chiropractor. Yes going to the chiropractor takes all day, he is 2 hours away.

It was fun having Lerato and Monica around so we could get to know them a little better. All six kids were very busy, but behaved most of the time. The day started at 6:30AM and they left around 3:30pm. In that amount of time we played with everything and did about every activity possible. We played with toys, puzzles, rode little bikes, went swimming 2 times, played on the slide, jumped on the trampoline, colored Christmas pages, played with play-dough, watched part of a movie and ate a snack and lunch. I figured out what its like to run a daycare.

Our new little puppy, Millie, also had a big day. The girls loved Millie and tried carrying her around all day. Millie also ended up swimming, riding bikes, getting pushed down the slide & jumping on the trampoline.

Enjoy some of the pictures from our fun day. As you can see Lerato and Monica are settling into life with the O'Tools nicely and getting to know Liam and Lindie.
