Nathan is sure on a reading streak! 

He read these 4 chapter books in ONE day! He got 10/10 on his AR test for 3 of them. The last test he got a 9/10. So I guess he's comprehending what he's reading! 

I got him some new cute doggie pajamas. He just loves them!

Pasco Luminaries

A large neighborhood in Pasco does quite the lights display! Practically everyone sets out luminaries and a lot people put up great Christmas lights displays. We went to check it out!

Elizabeth brought all 5 cats. Pumpkin likes to snuggle in her shirt. 

This guy was pulling people around on lighted trailers! That looked fun!

The kids loved this house. 

It was neat that all the streets looked like this!

There were several Santas along the way passing out candy canes.

Church Christmas Program

The 4 year olds were shepards! 

The 1st graders were kings. 

I tried to get a picture together as the shepards were walking by. They were walking too fast. 

Shepards lined up to sing!

Elizabeth is in the middle. 

The shepards stood up to sing "Away in a Manger." 

The kings stood up to sing "Little Drummer Boy." 

The 1st graders!

The kids and a random photobomber shepard who jumped in.

The Centerpiece of Flowers

We didn't win any of the big prizes, but we got the centerpiece! 

Both kids wanted a picture with the beautiful centerpiece. 

Elizabeth wanted a girls only picture. 

This picture shows the light inside the centerpiece. 

Elizabeth decorated the centerpiece with a crown and a church.

Law Enforcement Ball 2014

The annual Law Enforcement ball happened to fall on Jeremy's day off again! We planned on having a neighbor girl babysit. Then, Grandma Pam to visit! Grandma Pam was kind enough to babysit for us while we headed out for the evening.  Thank you Grandma Pam!

A whole family photo

The ballroom had a ton of Christmas trees again! Look at that lake with the penguin ice sculpture!

Here was the igloo with ice penguins inside. 

And the many Christmas trees

A little pond and waterfall trickled down to the pond. 

Lighted trees

Jeremy tried to take a panoramic. It's a little blurry but shows what the ballroom mostly looked like. 

The tables. We won the centerpiece this year again! We never win any of the big prizes like trips, guns, expensive purses, or iPads, but we are really good at winning flowers. 

Jeremy and most of his squad.

Beautiful coloring

Elizabeth colored this box Grandma Pam got for her. Didn't she do a beautiful job? I love the red roses.
