Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Here's a picture of our Christmas tree at home. I love having a Christmas tree!

Don't you love Jordan's shirt?

Once again, Jordan and I enjoy posing for pictures with kids who are not our own. - I'm glad we have one on the way!!!

One incredibly cute thing that Kyle says is, "Oh, wow!" He always says it with such a sense of wonder, too. It's awesome. I think this was one of those moments!

The Cooper's have a tradition where everyone draws a name and then buys things for that person's stocking. Here are a few glimpses of the stockings tonight.

December Fun!

Both of Jordan's brothers and their families are in Houston now, (and his sister and her husband are on the way). So we've been having some fun with the family. It's always fun playing with Kyle. Doesn't he have the cutest smile?

He loved trying to reach the Christmas tree!

Last night we went to Discovery Green, which is a park in downtown Houston with a little ice skating rink. Mel, Rebecca, and I braved the ice and had a great time skating!

Is this really happening?

So, I know this is completely normal in some parts of the world, but this is NOT normal for Houston, Texas!! - It's snowing!!! And it's been snowing for a number of hours now! To illustrate my point that this is not normal here, when I pulled into the parking lot at school this morning, there were about 40 kids outside yelling and jumping up and down in excitement that it was, as one person said, "slushing!"

It's supposed to freeze tonight, so we got to leave school early! (Admittedly, I, too, was very excited! - Who doesn't want a chance to leave school early? And we won't have to make it up because we went for a good portion of the day!)

Here are some pictures at our apartment.

I saw this truck at our apartment, too. - I'm just glad we aren't in the middle of moving!!
