Out with the old, in with the new.  Now these aren't the best pictures, but they do the job.  Since we are expecting a new baby any day now, we had to upgrade are vehicle.  Our Yukon XL didn't have any more seats left for our new little baby, so we have looked for months at big vans.  It was just so much more practical and we felt that's what we needed to do.  (I never thought that at age 30 I would be driving one of these.)  The boys were all so excited and love it!  
We are now the proud owners of a 2008 Chevy Express.  It is a 1 ton, 15 passenger van.  Crazy!  But I'll tell you that this "Great White Shark" can get up and go!  It has way more power than our Yukon!  The boys even go and play in it after school.  They call it their fort.  :)  Caleb and Carson love to vacuum it and wash it.  They are really good at keeping it clean.  (They had lots of practice with the Yukon as well.)  So there you have it!

Goodbye Yukon Cornelius

Hello...we are still trying to come up with an appropriate name.

Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful Christmas this past year!  Every year the kids open one present on Christmas Eve.  They love wearing their new pajamas to bed.  On Christmas Eve's Eve we went to Grandma and Grandpa Richardson's and had our traditional Red Chili Burros that we all love so much.  Then on Christmas Eve, we went over to Grandma and Grandpa Reed's house and the boys loved listening to Grandpa's stories.  On Christmas Day we visited lots of family.  We stopped by Grandpa and Grandma Reed's, Great-Grandma and Grandpa Bear's, Grandma and Grandpa Richardson's and then visited Great-Grandma Stanford in the hospital.  We loved it, but we were definitely exhausted!

Run, Caleb, Run!

The Middle School took the best runners from every class and had a big race, called the Candy Cane Race.  Caleb was chosen to run against the 5th grade boys.  He did really good!  Carson and Caleb would go running around our neighborhood to train for it.  Carson never got a chance to qualify because he was sick that day.  But we all cheered hard as Caleb ran the last stretch to the finish line!  I can't remember how long the race was, I think it was a mile or so.

Kids and Santa

We went to the Extended Richardson Christmas Party.  They hold it every year and have a nice little Nativity Program, lots of singing, treats and then Santa comes.  We always have a lot of fun!  Here are a few pictures of the kids...they all loved it, except Lacey.  (She stills gets scared when we mention Santa's name. )
