We were blessed beyond measure to celebrate the birth of our Savior with lots of family time!  We tried a new tactic to help our boys learn thankfulness and an attempt for less greediness.  They all got something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.   
For "something to wear," Lucas got a police uniform and spent the day "under arresting" everyone.

 Jeremy got a new Colts sweatshirt
 Opening a family gift of an ipad!

Lindsay, Troy, Olivia and Ethan made the trek north on Thursday and on Friday, we had the whole family together for a ridiculous amount of gifts.

We are just so, so thankful for the opportunity to have our family together.  We feel incredibly blessed, humbled and grateful for each of them and the time together.
Merry Christmas from the Humphrey's!!

This is for Tom, who is in China and missing all this fun! 

 So thankful for generous neighbors who are willing to share their "toys" and time!!!
 Ian's reaction to the skid steer loader.  Wish you could hear the squeals coming out of him!
 Jeremy, Lucas and Brock taking a break from the snowball fight to eat some of the ammunition.
And, just some pretty pictures of the pretty snow:

The boys informed me this morning that they sure wish Dad was here because I'm not near as much fun!
This mom is wishing the same thing!!!

This past weekend, Grammy and Pops headed to Memphis to attend Ethan's dedication at their church, thanks to 3 sets of sitters who stayed with the boys!!  What a joy to join with the other grandparents and friends to promise to support Troy and Lindsay as they raise Ethan and Olivia to love God and love people.

 Saturday morning was a special time of music, prayer and a challenge from their pastor.
 We love the Highpoint "motto".....Love Works!
 Yummy snacks and a Bible for the families
 Olivia posing for a picture
 The handsome guest of honor

 After the Saturday event, we got to have some quality play time with the princess

First Grade Teachers

How many of you remember your 1st grade teacher?  I do!  And, I can pretty much guarantee that Lucas will always remember his.  Mrs. Storms was a blessing last year and became a wonderful friend in the process.  She invited Lucas to go for a walk in her woods yesterday and he was thrilled!

 Not only does she have an awesome woods with paths that she's cleared but a great dog, named Sadie.
 Lucas was in heaven!
 And a kitty, too!
 Discussing the hedge apples
 Friends for life!

Grandparents Day

Despite some potentially restricting circumstances, my parents were able to come to Grandparents Day at Lucas' school.  He was thrilled!  The program was great and Lucas did a good job singing, in spite of the anxiety that plagues him.

Thank you for coming, Mimi and Pa!
