Sleigh Ride

Last Sunday we went on a sleigh ride, compliments of the Karpe's...and had a blast. This week seems to just slip away from me! How about you? I still have to go Christmas shopping for most everyone, so looks like Mark and I are going to have to double team it, split up and shop!
We found this GREAT new hill by us, so the kids and I have already been sledding twice this week. I am excited for the new snow so we can go again tonight! If you are up this way and like sledding!!! This is your hill! I was so scared going down, b/c it had all the "jumps and stuff". Not my kids! They were running into their sleds and flying over the jump! (crazy!, even Carter)
Hope your Christmas is splendid...Don't forget to Thank God for giving us the best gift of all. HIS SON!

Ok, here's the scoop

Here's the picture of Alli, eating rice cereal for the first time! She is starting to roll over now. It's so exciting to see. She sits up for a while as well. She now weighs 17lbs 13oz. She is just a joy to have around. She loves eating ALL fruits and veggies and I am so thankful to the Lord for "fixing" her colon. She poops at least once a day!
Carter and Sydney LOVE being outside in the snow, the Lord programed them perfectly for Ely!
I took them sledding today, they didnt want to leave, but still couldn't make it back up the hill to go down "one more time".
Sydney has such a sweet heart. She is always looking out for her siblings. She is anxious to start reading and is a great colorer!!!
Mark and Sydney left last week to go find a place to live in Ely. It looks like we have a 1200 square foot apartment. Right about the local florist. (maybe I will be getting flowers more frequently now :))
The biggest news of our family is my sister Heidi is living with us. She was pulled out of school last week and put into the foster care system. God is good. Two hours before the court hearing, the Lord worked it out so we would be qualified to become her foster parents. God is good. She is happy and we are searching for what God has for all of us next. Schooling, etc...
Keep us in your prayers as we all adjust.
We dont' know how long this is going to be going on...but we are waiting and content.
God Bless you all over the holiday season! To God be the glory.

I realized, I didn't post any Halloween pictures of the here you go!
Anyways. Life is so busy with the move...if anyone wants a house, we'll give you a great deal. You can check out our house on the MLS the number is 3471900
Sydney helped me today make cookies, those christmas wreath ones with red hots. Yesterday she spent the whole day outside playing in the snow.
Carter is starting to get into Thomas the Tank Engine and liking SPROUT...It's kind of nice in the morning, so we can sleep in a bit.
Alli is eating rice cereal and fruits and veggies...she is liking it! She hasn't quite rolled over, but really kicks her legs to try and move forward.
Mark and I are boxing up things and putting them in a storage facility in town, so things aren't cluttered.
Please pray our house sells quickly.
Have a great weekend!
