Emily's Glasses

Emily got her new glasses last week. We went with the plastic frames to see if the skin reaction she was having was to the nickel in the metal.
Obviously, we went with pink. : )

It's hard to see, but there are sparkles and butterflies on the arms.

I love this picture of brother and sister snuggling.

They set up an entire band with stages for the guitarist and a piano accompanist. You can't see it in this picture, but in front of them was a tower of boxes with a spotlight made out of a flashlight. It was very cool.

Emily's showing off her new (from the thrift store) leopard and sparkle shoes.

This is the post that never ends....

Yes, it goes on and on my friends.....

First, we begin with Chris' school Christmas program. Not a lot to look at since they just sang a couple of songs that had hand motions. But they DID recite Luke 2:1-14. Very impressive! They were dressed like farmers because the program that 2nd - 4th grade put on was "Christmas in the Country" and I guess they were supposed to coordinate.

Chris is playing basketball this winter through the Upward program at the church down the street. So far he's liking it. They haven't played any games yet; they'll start late January.

The tree is decorated!! We have Christmas spirit! Emily must show her belly!

Christmas Eve, just before church. Wait -- is Emily grabbing herself?! Don't look! Sadly, these are the best pictures of many. I don't know if I should laugh or cry....

Again, you don't want to see the bad pictures....

Chris is reading his letter from Santa. This is the first year that he's really gotten into it -- he drew Santa a picture and wrote the cutest letter to him.

Stocking pictures.

Presents from Mom and Dad...

Christmas dinner with the Kettlers.

Kettler Christmas Chaos.

Dorkus and Doofus.

Just kidding. Handsome man #1 and Gentleman #2.

Occupied children. There is no sweeter sight.

More presents from the out-of-towners, e.g. Grammy and Pop and crew.

Yippee! Chris got a drum pad! It's so noisy!! Yippee!

Emily is excited about her purse from Grandma Anderson!

A project for Chris and Pop.

Satisfied smiles.

So many presents, so little time...



A Christmas rock concert.

Showing off the new BB gun with Pop. The grown-up version is Bobby's gift from his Dad and Chris' got the official Red Ryder from Pop.

New Year's Eve. Everyone is taking a break from the Pictionary marathon. Scott is clearly saying something captivating.

New Year's Eve kiddos.

Giggly sleepy Jenny. A self-portrait.

Chris is now displaying his sniper skills....
as long as his target is not more than 10 feet away, that is.


You'll shoot yer eye out!

Going Back in TIme

Okay.... so, I know it's been a VERY long time since I posted. I downloaded the pictures wrong, so we're going to view what's been happening in the Kettler household in reverse. We'll start with this past Thursday evening at Emily's Thanksgiving program. She's the monkey.

Then, carving pumpkins with Grammy and Pop for Halloween.

Chris was a football player and Emily was a cheerleader.

Chris' field trip with Dad to the Orr Family Farm

Chris' soccer award and party.

Spirit week at school. Movie character day.

Super hero day.

Dress like candy day (weird, I think).


The end.
