The theme of this week: smiles... and more smiles... we just couldn't get enough:).  AND, just when we thought we were done, we had more smiling to do :).  What an amazing week!

We had our small group Christmas party Thursday evening... what a blast :)

Family Fun :)

Amongst the many things we are so very thankful for this year, having the whole family out for Thanksgiving and Sierra and Caleb's dedication day stands out as a highlight!  The Haanen, Faulkner and Camping grandparents, as well as Great Grandma Drussell and Camping all made it out from Arizona and Minnesota to celebrate with us.  What an awesome week!
Caleb loves his new blanket from Great Grandma Drussell!  At 4 weeks old he's already 9 pounds 13 ounces :)
