December 2002

After we returned from Milwaukee, it was time to decorate the Christmas tree. We have alot of personalized ornaments and a train to go around the bottom.

Britt's Pom season came to an end in December. Britt and Kelly choreographed a dance this month and the whole squad, along with the Cheer squad, had a great, combined, Holiday performance.

Grandpa and Grandma, Frank and Margaret, came for a visit from
Clarkdale, AZ. Why they would want to come up to the midwest in the winter is a mystery, but I think we showed them a good time. Britt and Dani built a great gingerbread house to decorate for the holiday season.

Dani saw santa in Downtown

Here you see us dressed and ready for the evening on Christmas Eve. we had a great meal at Johnny's Char House in
Sycamore. After that, we attended the Christmas Eve service at the Sycamore United Methodist Church.

Christmas morning brought lots of presents for everyone. The girls were especially good this year, if you base it on the amount of presents they received!

It snowed on Christmas Eve, so on Christmas Day, we had a nice coating of white stuff on the ground.

Here you see Frank and Dani enjoying some alone time.
