Number one...ME! boy can wrestle!!

Fairly certain, Scott may have a heart attack some time in the next few years:)
Though he is not as vocal as a lot of the parents!
Noelle and I just scream "Go Teme!"  All six of us were there for this tournament:)

Yes that is a girl!  He wasn't sure about that.

"I love you baby Jesus!"

There is a local Catholic Church that had a Nativity Scene.  They chose to add Jesus on Christmas. 
 Today was the first day that we had a chance to go see Him:)  Sabrina was so excited!  
We had a nice but different Christmas.  We celebrated as an immediate family at home on Thursday evening.  We intended to leave Friday for Des Moines to see my family.  Instead we spent the day in the E.R. with Noelle's migraine.  After some morphine, we headed home so she could sleep.  Fourteen hours later she woke up, still with a headache.  We elected to head to Des Moines anyway.  Probably not our best decision making.  We were able to participate in some activities but on Christmas Day we were back in the E.R., this time in Des Moines:(  So rather than head to Lincoln to visit my grandma, when Noelle was a little more comfortable we headed back to Waterloo.  Upon waking Monday she was a little better and has had some respite from her headache this week.  We will see her neurologist again next week. 
 Praying for some answers!

Decked out with some new Christmas clothing.  
Hat, tee and necklace (Go Pack! and Cyclones!) on Teme!
Sparkly boots, leotard and tutu on Sabrina.

Quick prayer request!

Noelle's migraines are back.  This is week three of lots of drugs.  Today we went to the E.R. for some morphine.  That is what finally kicked it back in September.  We are home and she is sleeping but if she wakes up in pain we will probably head back to the hospital:(  We were to go to Des Moines today to spend Christmas with my family and on to Lincoln to see my 97 year old grandma on Monday.  All plans are on hold at this point, which is obviously not a big deal compared to Noelle's pain.  We covet your prayers!

Busy little superstar

On to the ballet!  She is stinking cute in a tutu!  This was actually practice, as you are not allowed to photograph or video the actual performance.  Wish someone had helped her retie her shoe before she went on stage:)

It has begun

Wrestling that is. And I think Teme is going to be very good at it. He is 91 pounds without his prosthetic. He has wrestled two meets. The first he got second at his weight. He had a bye, a win and then he got pinned. Yesterday he won all three of his matches! Pretty awesome!

Sabrina's Christmas Concert


This is honestly the only picture that I took that turned out. We had Scott's family with us for a little over four days and mostly I cooked and did dishes:) We had a great time and I think fun was had by all. There was a trip to the farm, a wii bowling tournament (1st place to Jake, 2nd place to Kim), lots of food, and a crazy gift exchange.

Hunting mama!

So....I was tired of being ditched at home while the guys hunted. So....a couple of days before Thanksgiving I went on a guided hunting trip with Jake and my dad to the Mississippi River. Jake's favorite hunting is waterfowl, so he was in heaven. I shot at a few birds but don't think I actually hit anything.
