More Christmas Fun

Tonight Megan had another Christmas Pageant.  This one was called "The Littlest Christmas Tree," and her class performed it tonight at school.  Megan played the part of a "bragging tree."  All the trees in the story are trying to win the affection of Santa, while only one tree displays the true spirit of Christmas.

I also attached more pictures of Megan in her last two pageants.  She loves acting and performing.  She's been having a blast.

Christmas Pageant 2014

Megan was a shepherd tonight in the Christmas Pageant at our church.  She loves performing like this and dressing up.  She did a great job.  She even had a small speaking part which you'll see in the video.


As most of you know Ben recently got a pet Leopard Gecko which he named "Godzilla."  He has really been enjoying it, and he's been taking good care of it.  He recently made a funny movie trailer about his Gecko.  Here it is:

Life At Random

The other day I noticed my pile of random pictures was piling up.  Over the past few months we enjoyed the fall colors and Halloween fun, and now we're in full blown winter mode.

Halloween 2014

One of the things we were looking forward to the most when we moved back to the U.S. was celebrating Halloween at our house.  The cooky holiday has always been one of our family's favorites.  Decorating the house with spooky decorations, dressing up in costumes, throwing our annual "Halloween party" and inviting our neighbors and friends, watching spooky movies, going trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, visiting Jenny up at Dow, etc.  Our family loves it.  This year Megan dressed up as Elsa from "Frozen" when she went to school, and then she dressed up as Hermione from Harry Potter.  Ben was a Werewolf.  Jenny was Snoopy, and I was Count Dracula.  This year's Halloween was great.  We all realized how much we missed it.  We even had neighbors tell us they missed seeing the house decorated.  Here are some of the highlights.
