This time last year we didn't have Christmas decorations because I had a broken arm and quite frankly it was all we could do to get everyone showered everyday much less decorate for Christmas. So this year, all my bones are connected and I have some medicine that is working to keep my nausea and sickness under control so I was excited to decorate this year. Kati Ann was really excited as well. She loved that we put up a Christmas tree at our house. Wherever we go that we see a Christmas tree, she says, "I have one at my house!" So, here are a few pics of our endeavors to make our home look like we're celebrating a very special birthday!

Visit to Grandma Joan

For Thanksgiving, we visited Jared's grandmother, Grandma Joan, in North Oklahoma. We spent most of our Thanksgiving Break in the car but it was nice to visit family and enjoy some UNBELIEVABLE food!!

The Rainbow

For Thanksgiving, we journeyed to Miami, OK and decided to take the "long" way and make a stop at the St. Louis Arch in St. Louis, MO. As soon as we pulled into town, Kati Ann spotted the arch and said, "Mom, look there's a rainbow." We didn't go visit the arch until the next morning and she continued to refer to the arch as the rainbow and thought it was amazing (at least from the outside). We took the tram up to the top of the "rainbow" and all 3 of us weren't nearly as impressed by the inside as we were the outside. It was fun to make memories!!
