Christmas 2012

Christmas has come and gone and it doesn't seem like it is already New Year's Eve! I LOVE Christmas time and always look forward to it. We had many family gatherings and probably ate way too much but I am going to cherish all the memories made! I have pictures from most of the family get togethers...still have one last party tomorrow night. 

Pre-Christmas party before Jarod's brother moved to Florida 

 These two are best buds!


I didn't get everyone to look because we had too many cameras going off but I love Dre's face

These took forever to make but I loved them thinks to pinterest

Our Christmas card

Khloe was snooping like dad

She knows whats inside....this is the look she gives when she wants something. Her tail is moving like crazy. haha 

Nelson Christmas 

Second cousins

Some of the family


G-ma and her kids

Knepp Christmas

Katie loved the tissue paper/wrapping paper! I am a Katie hog but just love her to pieces!

Opening gifts

Ahhhh! I found this for Katie and she looked so cute in it:) 

Bother-in-law and sister-in-law

Chicken run smile

I buy an ornament in memory of Lindsey every Christmas and decided to make one this year. Burlap is really hard to work with (or I thought so) and it didn't turn out exactly how I wanted. But, it was the thought that counted. 

Miss you Lindsey

Once Khloe opened her bone she wanted nothing to do with her other present....she is trying to escape. lol

Jarod surprised me with a beautiful necklace this year! LOVE it but he totally caught me off guard! 
P.S- I know may hair is a mess but I didn't care:)

Jarod with his gifts. I always have to ship them to my parents because he snoops way to much.

This will be perfect for when we travel;) I am becoming more of a Vera fan every year.

Christmas morning
I LOVE him more than words can describe! 

And.......the blizzard that came the day after Christmas. Feels like I am in a postcard! 

I hope everyone else had a MERRY CHRISTMAS and remember the true meaning of Christmas.


Maybe 2013 will be the year God will give us a miracle. I know I HOPE so because this Christmas felt like we were missing something.

Khloe turns 5

Yesterday Khloe turned FIVE or 35 in dog years! I can't believe we have had her almost 5 years! Don't know what I would do without her. She is one of the sweetest dogs, playful, loves to go on walks, drives, snuggle and can be timid at times but I think that goes with her breed. She also loves to play ball....I really think she dreams about her ball. lol. She can play for HOURS!

I remember the day when we went to pick her up after finding her on the internet. We couldn't decide on naming her Lexie, Kenya or Khloe. Well, when we seen her we just knew she was a Khloe:) 

For her Birthday we took her on a car ride and picked up a McD's ice-cream cone. The first time she had ice-cream and she loved it! I have some pictures of when she was a puppy and a couple others over the years.  

She is still cute but was one of the cutest puppies!

She was so tiny!

The older she gets the darker she gets. You can hardly see her spots anymore:(

On the drive looking at Christmas lights!

Oh yeah!

And one last one of our niece. I just LOVE her!
