Christmas 2010

Another Christmas has come and gone. Of course, Santa was good to the girls, and so was the rest of our family ;). Thank you everyone for your wonderful gifts! We had a great Christmas being able to spend it with Grandma and Grandpa Slick (Jake's parents) and Nick and Megan. It always makes the holidays better when you can spend it with family. Here are a couple pictures of our Christmas.. and don't forget to check out Sierra's awesome roller skate video at the bottom of the page.


















Sierra got some new roller skates for Christmas. Those things do not leave her feet. She skates around the house all day. She is looking like a natural. It will be fun to go outside in the spring and let her loose. Here is a fancy trick she is pretty proud of. :)

Frames and Furniture

Jake has been working hard perfecting his woodworking skills. Our next door neighbors dad is an artist and is in the market for someone to custom frame his artwork. So Jake has been working on making different styles of picture frames to showcase. Here are a few of the picture frames that Jake has been working on. The pictures inside are our neighbors dads art. He does mostly ducks, geese, and other birds... at least the pictures that I have seen.


Below are a few more pieces of furniture Jake made for a few of our friends.

Our Fabulous Christmas Tree




A few weekends ago we decorated our tree. The kids loved hanging all the ornaments.. and quickly decided they were toys.... I'm sure most kids think that. Well, lastnight when I came home from work, I noticed that our tree had even more decorations on it! They added scarves as tinsel and barbies and ponies as ornaments! LOVE IT!!! How cute is that? It makes our tree look so cute.. at least I think so. Fancy trees are beautiful, but I love homemade kid friendly Christmas trees. I added a few closeups of the AWESOME ornaments.

Yes, we have a few naked barbies on there too.. oh well.


BTW Jamie.... our tree blows yours out of the water!!!
