Happy Christmas!

As our newest and dearest friend "Thomas the Tank Engine" would say, Happy Christmas! That's right, we have now entered a new all-boy stage called "Thomas". You can see below that Garreet and Clayton both recieved some trains for Christmas and in Garrett's words "We have all the trains we need!"

Right before Chrismas we had a snow day so we had some practice for the 2 feet of snow we would get to play in while in Michigan! We had a great time visiting our families!

Here we are in MI celebrating with the Marlink and VanSlooten families; it was great to be all together again and for the boys to see their cousins.

Opa and Oman and Grandpa and Grandma gave the boys lots of fun experiences, but not all were captured on our camera, so they may be posted in days to come. We went to Fredrich Meijer Gardens, a live nativity, The Holland Aquatic Center, Crazy Bounce, and got to feed the ducks. I don't know if we could pick our favorite - each was a special experience!

We have now returned home and are enjoying 8in of snow, and a new tradition - a snow day on the first day back to school! We hope the new year finds you well and seeing God in new ways!
