Catch up!

 Oh my!  Life gets in the way and I don't feel like I have a minute to sit down and blog!  I need to get better about that.  This time of year is crazy busy for us and I'm trying to enjoy every minute of this hectic life of ours.
To get you caught up here are some things that have been happening in our world

1.  My Dad had heart valve surgery on Saturday, December 7.  He is doing OK and is thankfully at home but he has a long road to recovery ahead of him.  He is strong and he is a fighter so I know that he will get through it but it's been stressful for all of us.

2.  We are going to Disney in January!!   Ava and I are going with my sister and her family. My Dad and Vicki were going to go too but because of my Dad's surgery they can't join us on the trip. Hopefully we will be able to plan another Disney trip with them when my Dad is feeling better and when Graig and Brock can join us.

3.  Our nephew Gabe is going to be a big brother!  We found out Graig's brother Garth and his wife Jill are expecting their second baby in the spring!  Brock and Ava are excited to have another cousin!

4.  I have been doing a lot of baking this holiday season.  I made peppermint patties for our friend cookie exchange last weekend.  There were 33 of us that participated!

On Saturday my neighbor and friend Heidi got together to make Buckeyes (aka peanut butter balls!)
There were SO good and I passed many out to friends because I didn't want to eat them all!

5.  Both Brock and Ava are playing basketball now.  Last week we had some of Brock's friends and their parents over for a pizza party to celebrate our win in the first tournament of the year!  I'm so thankful that Brock has these good friends.  They have a great time together!

Tomorrow I will be back with our Christmas decorations!
