We took the kids to Walk thru Bethlehem this year.  It is done by a local church and it is really a great experience.   It’s all about life in Bethlehem when Jesus was born.

Jack’s roof did not want to stay on!  We eventually let it fall and he just ate it.  That’s what he wanted to do all along anyway!!

About two days before Christmas Hailey decided she wanted Daddy to take her training wheels off…  She is doing really good and pretty soon will be going faster than we can keep up!
