Prairie, I love the traditions and activities you do as a family and with your friends... you truly are an example to me. I love you.

I am so glad you are blogging again.
I love to see your family.
I did not know (or remember) that you play the piano.
I have thought about teaching kids, but I worry I will have to get a babysitter to watch my own, therefore won't be cost effective.
You guys have been busy.
Did you go to Idaho at all?

Sarah said...

ahhh... looks like you guys had such a great Christmas! We missed you!!!!

Oh, this makes me think of our Christmas Nativity play with all our friends. What great memories.
I hope your dinner was as fun as Thanksgiving. Is that possible.

I finally got to feel the Daugherty tradition of getting my kids in period clothing and acting out the nativity scene.

Ok, we were at someone else's party, and the costumes were provided for us, but hey! We were feeling the Christmas love alright.

hey, where's the new photos? I loaned you my camera so you can't use that excuse! :)
Hope the outside work is coming along nicely.
