Gingerbread House

Every year on my side of the family we make a gingerbread house and then eat/destroy it on Christmas. :)
I don't have any pictures of eating it but here are some of building it.

We hope that everyone had a most wonderful Christmas season!!

Merry Christmas!!

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the sons of God.
Therefor the world does not know us because it knew Him not.
1 John 3:1

Merry Christmas!!! May this Christmas be filled with family and friends and many happy memories!!

Family Pictures

We got Megan to take these pictures for us back in October. They were going to be for Christmas cards so I didn't blog them, but now I'm not sure if we will be using them or taking new ones. :) So anyway, I thought I would share them with you.

Making More Room

Ever since I became a part of the Pauls family we have been playing hockey a nice skating rink. But with the boys all getting bigger and faster we were starting to run out of room. :)
So this year we have been working on a new rink, one that's much bigger than the old one. Now we will have plenty of room!
Today Josh and Dad are flooding it for the first time, and they are realizing how big it actually is! :) But they are doing a great job and in not to long from now we should all be out there enjoying it! Just in case you didn't know, hockey is one of the best things about Winter. :)

And here are 2 pictures of the beauty of Winter, this morning we had a lot of frost on the trees, it looks amazing!!
